Letter to our grandchildren - 1930

(Lord John Maynard Keynes)

"When the accumulation of wealth is no longer of high social importance, there will be great changes in the code of morals. We shall be able to rid ourselves of many of the pseudo-moral principles which have hag-ridden us for two hundred years, by which we have exalted some of the most distasteful of human qualities into the position of the highest virtues. We shall be able to afford to dare to assess the money-motive at its true value. The love of money as a possession — as distinguished from the love of money as a means to the enjoyments and realities of life — will be recognised for what it is, a somewhat disgusting morbidity, one of those semi-criminal, semi-pathological propensities which one hands over with a shudder to the specialists in mental disease ... But beware! The time for all this is not yet. For at least another hundred years we must pretend to ourselves and to everyone that fair is foul and foul is fair; for foul is useful and fair is not. Avarice and usury and precaution must be our gods for a little longer still. For only they can lead us out of the tunnel of economic necessity into daylight."

(Lord John Maynard Keynes)

"Patriotism is the Last Refuge of a Scoundrel"

(Samuel Johnson)

-------------------------------------------------

"Of one thing I feel certain: this same technical progress which, in itself, might relieve mankind of the great part of the labor necessary to its subsistence, is the main cause of our present misery. Hence there are those who would in all seriousness forbid the introduction of technical improvements. This is obviously absurd. But how can we find a more rational way out of our dilemma?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.

Too bright for our infirm Delight The Truth's superb surprise
As Lightening to the Children eased With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually Or every man be blind---"

"Memories are best created and then strengthened when information is processed as an association that involved all of your senses"

(Harvard Medical School)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"A new approach to studying brains and individual differences involves making maps of how neurons connect to one another. Following the term genome, these are called connectomes.........The human brain contains 100 million neurons, and each neuron makes thousands of connections on average.  If we assume that each distinct connection pattern gives rise to a distinct brain state - like the effervescent sensation after that first kiss - the number of brain states exceeds the number of known particles in the universe"

"I frequently hear the claim that evolution violates the second law of thermodynamics, however not from evolutionists, but from creationists and we all know about their pseudoscience!"

“The most astonishing thing about Spaceship Earth: it didn't come with an operating manual."

"What usually happens in the educational process is that the faculties are dulled, overloaded, stuffed and paralyzed so that by the time most people are mature they have lost their innate capabilities."

"Now, if you were world master, you would not be at all worried about being displaced by a dull one. You would only be apprehensive of and on guard against the bright ones. There is the old strategy of "divide and conquer." Anticipatory "divide and conquer" is more powerful than tardy "divide and conquer." The old masters, then, in order to prevent themselves from being displaced from their great ocean mastery deliberately went to work taking the young, bright ones as they came along, and divided them up anticipatorily into non-self-integratable specializations, which made them completely innocuous as challengers to comprehensive grand-strategy thinking and practical-affairs integration. The bright ones thus became subject to integration of their high potential only at the masters' command......"

"To make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone."
