“Technological progress has its downside: complexity, obsfucation, lack of depth, alienation; homo sapiens become homo economicus and now auto-sapiens; quantity becomes quality (although it is clear enough that more is not always better) and the wrappings are the package. It is time to take time with the poets and listen to the raindrops, time to read again the myth of the Tower of Babel, and to rediscover the lessons of entropy in everyday life.”
