“Paik wanted to build an anthropomorphic robot, because he was fascinated by the scientists’ discovery that the human brain had begun to grow after man stopped walking on all fours and had to figure out what to do with his two ‘free’ hands.”

There seems to be a constant decay of all our ideas; even of those which are struck deepest, and in minds the most retentive, so that if they be not sometimes renewed by repeated exercises of the senses, or reflection on those kinds of objects which at first occasioned them, the print wears out, and at last there remains nothing to be seen.Locke—Human Understanding. Bk. II. Ch. 10.
Times are bad. Children no longer obey their parents and everyone is writing a book.Cicero, 43 BCE
This is your Dropbox. There are many like it, but this one is yours. Your Dropbox is your best friend. It is your life. You must master it as you must master your life.
Your Dropbox, without you, is useless. Without your Dropbox, you are useless. You must sync your Dropbox true.
Before God, swear this creed. Your Dropbox and you are the defenders of your files. You are the masters of your enemy. You are the saviors of your life.

Men still kill one another, they have not yet understood how they live, why they live; politicians fail to observe that the earth is an entity, yet television has been invented: the ‘Far Seer’ — tomorrow we shall be able to look into the heart of our fellow-man, be everywhere and yet be alone.
