From Old English, originally: wise + doom.
To be wise about one’s doom is to have wisdom.
witen (Old English) “to know”
witan (Gothic) “to know”
videre (Latin) “to see”
vidati (Sanskrit) “to know”
To know one’s doom.
dom (Old English) “judgment, law”
themis (Greek) –> related “to think, to form an opinion, to believe.”
To know one’s end, or one’s judgment is to have wisdom. Taken from an eschatological perspective, wisdom is knowing that Christ’s judgment is coming, memento mori, ephermality of the physical world, etc. Taken from a modern environmental perspective, wisdom is something like foresight, understanding global warming, knowing our collective fate and thus being prepared for it, whether body or soul.
Prophets have wisdom.
Inspector Finch has it, briefly.
Future Monuments are about projecting wise-doom.
