I think that things happen individually first, and then collectively. It's not the other way around.
Neale Donald Walsch
You know, if you love something, you should love it regardless of whether it costs five dollars or 500 or 5,000 dollars. Unfortunately, that's not the way our culture works, and we do collectively buy into this idea that things that are more expensive probably have more value.

We collectively have a special place in our heart for the manned space flight program - Apollo nostalgia is one element, but that is only part of it.

We're as clever as we think we are, but we'll be a lot cleverer when we learn to use not just one brain but to pool huge numbers of brains.

'Nobody goes to jail.'
