The Great Stink
It’s time for men to stop worrying about who they are, and start thinking about what they do.

Enlightened Imagination For Citizens
When Einstein remarked that “Imagination is more important than knowledge”, he meant “enlightened imagination”—that is, imagination aided by specially obtained knowledge using methods that as much as possible are able to avoid being snarled by our naïve takes on what is around us.


Thomas Austin - Australia - Rabbits


In our world, we have enough power to topple our most important systems, but not the power to restore most of them.


Being heroic in the face of disaster—as humans often are—will not help in most of these cases. This means that we have to “learn about consequences before they happen”. We have to be able to summon vivid enough imaginations of the disasters to be heroic long before they happen. And we have to educate our imaginations how to do this without introducing superstitions and paranoid delusions.
