|We must find something of
common interest. Something that makes us "world civilians". Something
besides that one world topic today: money. Also something easier to
obtain, with traditional and new communication tools for instance.
Bonding Mankind. That something in our view is the Universe and
our role in it. Insignificant so far, but already as remarkable as
bacteria. Listen to Arthur C. Clarke, Eugene Shoemaker and to many
others. The greatness is amidst us all. RR - 20 September 2001
