RE: Quote, 9/1

The press, the machine, the railway, the telegraph are premises whose thousand year conclusions no one has yet dared to draw

Friedrich Nietzsche

Spaceships and time machines are no escape from the human condition. Let Othello subject Desdemona to a lie-detector test; his jealousy will still blind him to the evidence. Let Oedipus triumph over gravity, he wouldn't triumph over his fate.

Arthur Koestler
