I don't understand it all , not even a smidgen, but to have a gadget we can command and control, could easily be reversed and then we are asking for big trouble.
Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.
