“In the beginning God created the universe. This made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.” ~Douglas Adams

What to say on the origin of man? The bible says, ashes to ashes and dust to dust. So, man is made of ashes and dust. And man is also 72% water. Therefore: Man is mud. Mud is generally not wanted in the house. Cars get stuck in it. Evil little girls serve it in pie form to evil little boys. But, dogs play in it, so it cant be all bad...

Some people use it for recreation and play in it with big trucks and motorcycles. Some people use it for charity or physical fitness by running through it. Some people make a living with it by creating art or building things with it. Some people sling it as a means of making a political statement. In a bizarre twisted ritual, mud, which is considered filthy, is often used by women who literally bathe in it to become more beautiful. This would suggest that either men are attracted to mud or women are very confused. Your name can be mud. You can name your children after mud, like Clay. An opinion can be as clear as mud. And if the opinion is scary enough, you can lose your mud. You can muddle through something, with or without mucking about. You can be caught in a mud slide, which is generally considered to be a bad thing. Which is strange considering you can win by a land slide, which is just a mud slide without the moisture. Apparently a dry win is better, probably because of a practiced dry run.

Some men have sex with mud. I struggled with that idea. Then suddenly, Mother Earth made sense. And so did George Carlin. We really are screwing the whole planet.

It is impossible to freeze-dry mud.

Mud can not survive without water. Muck, slime, ooze, goo, slop, gook or sludge, perhaps. But not mud. Water is life to mud. Where water flows, so then does mud follow. You rarely see mud in its natural habitat in the absence of water. Sure, you can conjure mud in an artificial state. But that isn't real mud. That is test tube mud. Science can do many great things. But only God can create mud.

And that takes us full circle. The secret to life is: mud.

I was going to add to this story but decided to leave it as-is and just add a foot note. The "mud" is not just mud, it is also the philosophical 'temple', the body we live in. The 'house' is our world.
