Thanks for the great motivational article. Science and technology has indeed opened up arenas of independent existence that were not possible earlier. In removing the need for middlemen, like publishers for writers, or galleries for artists, the internet has effectively made it possible for each individual to reach every other. However I do think that even in the age of science and technology and the unsustainable drive for growth, impossibilities remain. And it is not in converting these into possibilities through adament bullheadedness, but in recognizing and appreciating the nature of our limitations that humankind can hope to survive in peace.
