progress

Nikola Tesla on the future

We are confronted with portentous problems which can not be solved just by providing for our material existence, however abundantly. On the contrary, progress in this direction is fraught with hazards and perils not less menacing than those born from want and suffering. If we were to release the energy of the atoms or discover some other way of developing cheap and unlimited power at any point of the globe this accomplishment, instead of being a blessing, might bring disaster to mankind...

Water-Power is the Solution to the problems of all Material Existence.

"The inevitable conclusion is that water-power is, by far, our most valuable resource. On this, humanity must build its hopes for the future. With its full development and a perfect system of wireless transmission of the energy to any distance, man will be able to solve all the problems of material existence. Distance, which is the chief impediment to human progress, will be completely annihilated in thought, word and action. Humanity will be united, wars will be made impossible, and peace will reign supreme."

What would I do?

"If success or failure of this planet and of human beings depended on how I am and what I do...How would I be? What would I do?"

What are you ready for?

What are you ready for? Progress, or money?

What is near extinction?

Racism, pollution and the rest of it are themselves very close to extinction.
