“It has become appallingly clear that our technology has surpassed our humanity.”
“Let us redefine progress to mean that just because we can do a thing, it does not necessarily mean we must do that thing.”
“There are only two major frontiers left – one is the exploration of space…the other is the exploration of the past.”
"Whoever gets the funding, gets the technology. Whoever gets the technology, stays on top."
“Television is a circus, a carnival, a traveling troupe of acrobats, storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers, sideshow freaks, lion tamers and football players. We’re in the boredom killing business.”
