In Progress

“Panic is a form of hubris.  It comes from the smug feeling that one knows exactly where the world is heading: down.  Bewilderment is more humble and therefore more clear-sighted.  Do you feel like running down the street crying ‘The apocalypse is upon us’?  Try telling yourself, ‘No, it’s not that.  Truth is, I just don’t understand what’s going on in the world.'”

“We are now creating tame humans that produce enormous amounts of data and function as very efficient chips in a huge data-processing mechanism, but these data-cows hardly maximize the human potential.  Indeed, we have no idea what our full human potential is, because we know so little about the human mind.”

Yuri Noah Harari, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century
