 THEN you WILL UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING BETTER                                                                                                                                   Albert Einstein 


   "Imagination alone can give us a vision of the future."

  OUR species very SURVIVAL will depend UPON IT

   Vision without action is just a dream. Action without vision

   passes the time. ACTION and VISION can change the world.

My own vision - as a child - was of a future time when we would be able

to personally experience a simulation of the reality such that we would be unable to tell

the difference between the simulation and the reality. My vision, at that time, identified

more with the "brown-stone" buildings of New York and the digital television watch of

Dick Tracey than the "1984" scenario painted by George Orwell. Later in life when

questioned as to my thoughts on "the simulation of the reality " and of a possible

definition thereof - I often retorted that, by use of the ‘ideal system', "one would be able

to jump off the white cliffs of Dover and walk away after the experience, without a

scratch, but being a completely different person as a result of the experience."

 

They all replied, as do some today, that I was in need of a frontal lobotomy.
