And Man saw that it was good

Another "torch" that man carries is one passed from generation to generation.

The torch of knowledge.

In the Beginning: The Extra-Sapien's Torch

In the beginning,
Man carried a fire torch
from cave to cave.

The magic of fire
gave Man dominion over all other
creatures (except dragons and Spanish flu).

Some say that it was Prometheus who taught mankind
the secret of how to make and keep wood in flames.

But that matters not because,
Man being the wise and sapien erectus that he is,
soon upgraded from his early torchwood to higher quality fuels:
(1) Wood
(2) Coal
(3) Whale oil
(4) Crude Oil
(5) Fracked Shale Oil and Gas
(6) Nuclear Fission and the evercoming Fusion
(z) Wiki list of energy sources

TEST: The Extra-Sapien's Torch (First Post)

The noble and wise creature.

He holds himself above all other animals.
Because he is Master of the Torch.

Which "Torch"?
That be a good and worthwhile question.

One goal of this new and nascent blog will be to explore our notions of carrying the torch forward. What "torch" do we carry and how far do we expect to go?
