Get rid of the technology and start using the power of the mind.... It is instant and there are no boundries of Time Space or Distance....

Really nice article !

A reference to Mark Burgess work about promise theory, and particulary "In Search of Certainty" ( would be perfect: Mark is talking about exactly these subjects, and he used to be a brilliant astro-physician (maybe not a coincidence :)

Thanks for the read!
