Time Wars by Jeremy Rifkin was also an interesting ride.

Summary: Examines new information about the biological clocks that govern all living organisms, and probes the dangers inherent in computer-based artificial environments where time is divorced from biological and environmental rhythms.

Ask himself if it's him or them that's insane"

Wow, never heard that one by him. I like punchlines, because they make me laugh, and that's the truth. Funny because it's true, ect.

I'm afraid if I publish this E.B. Kingman and Frank Benzino might find me and kill me. So this song is for them.

Some days I wish could delete this entire thread.
Some days I know I should not pursue sharing.
Yield.

The interesting thing about this story for me is, I started it twenty years ago, when I was twenty, and now I probably think opposite of it's main themes, a lot of which had to do with the fear of technology. Still, that type of fear does exist in this age for some people. So I share it, while stating that yes ideas and opinions can or will change over time. Just like everything else. #-o

I now hope technology will help us outrace the dying expanding sun.

No fear here for tech, for the race is internally preoccupied to try to go back, in order to fix the preexisting fissure between reason and sense.
Them, an escape is possible through a black sun, even.

How to go about it is less difficult then traveling to some far beaten path. Alpha Centauri , and the Queen of the Night.
