    THIS [IS] WHY A REAL BREXIT WILL [BE] a WIN for Leavers and Remainers ALIKE

    "Only MIND can discover how to do so much with so little as forever to be able

     to sustain and physically satisfy all humanity. Specialization tends to shut off

     the wide-band tuning searches and thus to preclude further discovery. [IT] IS

     also mistakenly assumed that employment is the only means by which humans

     can earn the right to live, for politicians have yet to discover how much wealth

     is available for distribution. All this is rationalized on the now scientifically

     discredited premise that there can never be enough life support for all.

     Thus humanity’s specialization leads only toward warring and such devastating

     tools, both, visible and invisible, as ultimately to destroy all Parthians. [IT] IS

     eminently feasible not only to provide full life support for all humans but also  

     to permit all humans’ individual enjoyment of all the Earth without anyone

     profiting at the expense of another and without any individuals interfering

     with others."

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.
