"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

These days, we are avalanched by the eruption of e-phenomena. From e-mail to e-retail, the human-to-human connection has been trumped in large measure by electronica.

This has led to a considerable delinking of human contact, with communication occurring between machines e-merging as our proxy selves. The cost has been high in terms of humane care and concern for one another.

Technology has powerful, commendable uses, but if we allow ourselves to serve as the pawns of gadgetry, there is a real danger of witnessing disintegrated identities within integrated circuits.

If this propagates with human consciousness at risk, we will witness a world in which the best are everywhere and the rest nowhere ... where the ‘best’ come from technology, and the ‘rest’ is us.

In trying to be someone else, and worse still, something else, we neglect to concentrate on the person we could be. The culprit is ego and thus, a fresh consciousness calls for us to move from e-go to we-go.

“The best things in life aren’t things.”
