Hal Finey quotes Gregory J. E. Rawlins:

> We seem headed for our own starbirth, drawn to it just as
> inexorably as those grains merge, accelerating toward it
> just as surely as the merging accelerates.

>> [...] we're moths
>> irresistibly attracted to the flame of technology.
>> Prometheus, disguised as a scientist, has given us that
>> flame. But fire also burns.

A magazine I get, _The Sun_, carries a quote by Viktor Frankl
on its masthead:
"What is to give light must endure burning."

p.s. so, it's the fierce orgasmotron of history, is it? all right, then.

"These blues ain't nothin' like the blues I had
 before I paid a little debt I owed.
 When I get these blues I just look back down that road."
