The Universe is vast.

Alfred North Whitehead

...The Universe that is our home.

John Archibald Wheeler

In the great black gulfs of space and in the realm of the innumerable stars, we shall find mysteries and wonders undreamed of. And when we return to earth, we shall try to remember something of what we have learned about the incredible Universe which is our home.

Robert Burnham, Jr.

Telecommunity (Global)
Global Information

The Euro-American world of modern times has developed a fairly consistent system of values for human coexistence, which is now accepted as a basis of international coexistence as well. These values include the concept of human rights and the liberties growing out of respect for the individual human being and his or her dignity. They also include democracy, which rests on separation of the legislative, executive, and judicial powers, on political pluralism and free elections. And they include respect for private ownership of property and the rules of the market economy.
Václav Havel

We're all stuck here for awhile. Let's try to work it out.
Rodney King (1 May 1992)
