We do not have enough members in our set of mankinds for a fair sampling.
J. T. Fraser (1975)

Uniqueness... haunts all inquiries into the affairs of the family of man, if that family is taken to include all people on earth. Comparative perspectives cease to be valid for a world-wide society. ... Unlike for tribes whose imagined destinies could be tested against the destinies of other tribes, there is no other humanity against which the collective self of all man could be defined.
J. T. Fraser (1978)

A unique difficulty arises when it comes to the identity of mankind: there are no other mankinds with respect to which our own could establish its identity. There are no cohorts that could wake us from collective fantasies and help us identify the boundaries of global possibilities.
J. T. Fraser (1987)

... It is only with the establishment of a global present that one may begin talking about humanity as a single social entity, and only from the epoch when such a global present becomes established can mankind as a social unit begin its history.
J. T. Fraser (1999)

Perhaps that late-night surfing is not such a waste of time after all: It is just the Web dreaming.
Tim Berners-Lee

The Grid, Internet2, and NGI (Next Generation Internet)


Given the inherent difficulty of sublight-speed travel as a way of exploring the galaxy, most technological cultures eventually settle for an expanding grid of von Neumann machines that costs nothing to maintain and generates a trickle of scientific information that expands exponentially over historical time.
