I wouldn't agree with the intelligence assessment-- some of the
Luddites are actually quite smart in their field (heck, even Kazinski
was a math professor, and apparently a genius). But I would
definitely agree about the psychological factor; how could they get
along without the feel of the loam beneath their birkenstocks, or the
sweet warble of the spotted owl? (Unless, of course, they took a
"Silent Running" approach.)

Heheh... you don't have to go to California for quakes (Arkansas had
a 3.9 and Illinois a 2.9 just yesterday). Just check out
http://wwwneic.cr.usgs.gov/neis/bulletin/bulletin.html to see where
the tremblers have hit in just the last day or so.
