Remember "Nice play,Shakespeare!" You'd say it to someone when they'd flubbed up. Makes you wonder if anyone ever said it to Shakespeare himself, say when he committed a faux pas. Also makes you wonder whether Shakespeare would have gotten the joke, Was he self-involved enough to think that he was simply being praised for one of his masterpieces?
So how sensationalized does the story need to be? Will the fate of humanity be a Shakespearean tragedy? Will we be a comeback, feel good, or comedic story? Who knows? But one thing is for certain - all the world is a vast sustainability stage - each of us has a role in the production. What role will you choose to play?
We shall probably never know with certainty whether Shakespeare indeed intended "Hamlet" to also represent the battle that was associated with one of the biggest revolutions in the history of science. The mere fact that we can even consider that possibility, only adds to the greatness of this monumental genius.
