My ADVICE FOR HUMANKIND: "Commence to experiment and
learn how best to confront entropic reality and thereby beginning
to experiment and learn on the cultural level, rather than
continuing to fuss and fight over various belief systems and
thereby prolonging our state of ignorance." Paul H. Newell, Jr.
