zeusjuice #1: I know you must think this is all very unfair. Maybe that's an understatement. What you don't know is I agree. I wish the world was a place where fair was the bottom line, where the kind of idealism you showed at the hearing was rewarded, not taken advantage of. Unfortunately, we don't live in that world. #2: Funny, I've always believed that the world is what we make of it. (full quote)
zeusjuice Science fiction. You're right, it's crazy. In fact, it's even worse than that, it's nuts. You wanna hear something really nutty?

And what about breaking the sound barrier, or rockets to the moon? Atomic energy, or a mission to Mars? Science fiction, right? Look, all I'm asking is for you to just have the tiniest bit of vision. You know, to just sit back for one minute and look at the big picture. To take a chance on something that just might end up being the most profoundly impactful moment for humanity, for the history... of history. (full quote)

A vision that tells us that we belong to something that is greater than ourselves, that we are not, that none of us, are alone. (full quote)
  Yes, um, it is our belief that the message contains instructions for building something, some kind of machine. A machine? That does what, Doctor? Well, we don't know, it might some type of, uh, uh, advanced, uh, communication device, or it could be a teaching machine of some kind, or, uh, it might turn out to be some kind of a transport. A transport? There's no proof of that. The fact is, you don't know what it does. It could be anything. It could be a Trojan Horse, we build it, and out pours the entire Vegan army. Why bother even risking the personnel? It could be a weapon. Right. Some kind of a doomsday machine. Exactly. Every time they detect a new civilization, they fax down these construction documents from outer space. We poor saps build whatever this thing is, and blow ourselves to kingdom come. (full quote)

crowecat The question that I'm asking is this: Are we happier...the human race? Is the world fundamentally a better place because of science and technology? We shop at home, we surf the Web...but at the same time, we feel emptier, lonelier, and more cut off from each other than at any other time in human history. We're becoming a synthesized society...in a great big hurry to get the next...[fades away, with outspace look at the Earth] (full quote)
