Just as the moon has no light of its own, but can only reflect the light of the sun, so are past and future only pale reflections of the light, POWER, and reality of the eternal present. * Control, particularly legal or political (jurisdiction). * 1949, Eric Blair, aka GEORGE ORWELL, _Nineteen Eighty-Four_ The Party seeks POWER entirely for its own sake.
