Mass produced and discarded 2000 years ago by Romans who were interested in looking around them.
Hoarded en masse now by we who are nostalgic for what we already have.
Khīṇaṃ purāṇaṃ nava
Te khīṇabījā, avirūḷhichandā.
Nibbanti dhīrā yathāyaṃ padīpo.
When the past is gone
And nothing more arises
The mind no longer becomes.
When the seed is used up, craving ends.
The wise go out like the flame of this lamp
