Even if we successfully compete in the visible world, our work will be neglected before we die.
It is important to work for future generations, for our descendants. We must be proud to do something even though people do not usually know its value.
To devote yourself in this kind of work is to have eternal life.
However, if you are occupied by a near-sighted idea, you will lose your value and you will not find your true composure.
