A moot point, but it could also be said that all the technology in
the world is not going to change the social attitude toward scientific
advances. Art is crucial to that. Bottom line is this: that both
technology and art are essential to a culture's progress. A balance --not
a compromise-- is likely the only way to unify society's general
perspective on both the short and long term future.
