  • frivolous possible activities—like making money.
  • We look at the present through a rear-view mirror. We march backwards into
  • the future.

Spaceship earth is still operated by railway conductors, just as NASA is
  • managed by men with Newtonian goals.
  • Invention is the mother of necessities.
  • Mud sometimes gives the illusion of depth.
  • Why is it so easy to acquire the solutions of past problems and so difficult to solve current ones?
slide10
Today each of us lives several hundred years in a decade.
  • Today the business of business is becoming the constant invention of new business.
  • Tomorrow is our permanent address.
  • All advertising advertises advertising.
  • The answers are always inside the problem, not outside.
  • This information is top security. When you have read it, destroy yourself.
  • The specialist is one who never makes small mistakes while moving toward the grand fallacy.
slide11
The missing link created far more interest than all the chains and explanations of being.
  • When a thing is current, it creates currency.
  • Men on frontiers, whether of time or space, abandon their previous identities. Neighborhood gives identity. Frontiers snatch it away.
