It's not often you get to peek into the future, but when you get a chance it is pretty cool.
Technology is a natural byproduct of human consciousness directly inherited from the Earth and the universe. It is numeric, and organic. We can trace the origin of technology back through biological history, all the way to stardust. It cannot be stopped anymore then we could stop the planets from spinning or the galaxies from forming and decaying.” – Gray Scott
“The human ego is not satisfied with uncertainty, wonderment, or curiosity. The ego needs power. It needs facts. We should be wary of the human guru who claims to possess absolute certainty. This is a human that is interested in power and control, not knowledge or enlightenment. “- Gray Scott
Reality is a delicious and disastrous concept.” – Gray Scott
