AWESOME story by a science fiction writer I recently discovered, name David Brin:http://www.davidbrin.com/aficionado.htm
length: about 7 pages when converted to 12 pt Times New Roman
This guy's doing what I want to do: he's writing about a beautiful future. Of course it's not perfect, but in this story he envisions life as being substantially BETTER.
Way to go, David. You are acting as a fine antenna. That term is from Terence McKenna, who also said this:
"The apocalypse is not something which is coming. The apocalypse has arrived in major portions of the planet and it's only because we live within a bubble of incredible privilege and social insulation that we still have the luxury of anticipating the apocalypse. If you go to Bosnia or Somalia or Peru or much of the third-world then it appears that the apocalypse has already arrived."
