Let there be justice for all.
Let there be peace for all.
Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all.
Let each know that for each the body, the mind and the soul have been freed to fulfill themselves.
Never, never and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another
Nelson Mandela, Inauguration as President of South Africa, 10th May 1994

I don’t want a lot for Christmas, there is just one thing I need:
What is a man now to do with his mind
When it’s working overtime
The best I can do is now dance with the devil
Chase and Status, Blind Faith, 2011
The awesome solidity of the surrounding objects, the smooth pace and the relentless momentum, make for a very peaceful, tranquil and calming three minutes
Why is the mind in the head? Because there, and only there, are hosts of possible connections to be formed as time and circumstance demand. Each new connection serves to set the stage for others yet to come and better fitted to adapt us to the world, for through the cortex pass the greatest inverse feedbacks whose function is the purposive life of the human intellect. The joy of creating ideals, new and eternal, in and of a world, old and temporal, robots have it not.
