“Taking Care of history.”
An interesting observation once was made about the evolving relationship between human sensibilities and the progress of modern inventions. The observation, paraphrased, goes something like this: There was a time when people traveled mainly by horse and were afraid of the newly introduced smoking railroad train. Then came the time when people liked to travel by train but were afraid of the new contraption called the automobile. Then came the time when people preferred to travel by automobile but were afraid of the odd new invention called the airplane. Then came the time when people sought to travel by airplane but now were afraid to get near a horse. How might such changing human sensibilities be affecting our relationship to the natural world and the ecological fundamentals of life on earth?
