A shepherd on a hilltop who looks at a mess of stars and thinks, "There's a hunter, a plow, a fish," is making mental connections that have as much real force in the universe as the very fires in those stars themselves.

Annie Dillard


First we build the tools, then they build us.

Marshall McLuhan


There should be a periodic conference of different types of people to think about ... some means by which we can make the best of both worlds. The best of the purely human world, and the best of this extraordinary, wonderful, and terrifying world of [technological] technique.

Aldous Huxley (1959)
