  • Well, that's no better a solution than any of the others, is it?

  • So, in the end, have we learned anything from this look at why the world turned out the way it did

  • that's of any use to us in our future?

  • Something, I think.

  • That the key to why things change is the key to everything.

  • How easy is it for knowledge to spread?

  • And that in the past,

  • the people who made change happen were the people who had that knowledge, whether they were craftsmen or kings.

  • Today,

  • the people who make things change, the people who have that knowledge,

  • are the scientists and the technologists who are the true driving force of humanity.

  • And before you say, "What about the Beethoven and the Michelangeloes,"

  • let me suggest something with which you may disagree violently :

  • that at best the products of human emotion : art

  • philosophypoliticsmusicliterature,

  • are interpretations of the world,

  • that tell you more about the guy who's talking then about the world he's talking about.

  • Secondhand views of the world

  • made third hand

  • by your interpretation of them.

  • Things like that :

  • As opposed to

  • this :

  • Know what it is?

  • It's a bunch of amino acids, the stuff that goes to build up a ―

  • a worm, or a geranium,

  • or you.

  • This stuff's easier to take, isn't it?

  • Understandable; got people in it.

  • This, scientific knowledge, is hard to take

  • because it removes the reassuring crutches of opinion, ideology,

  • and leaves only what is demonstrably true about the world.

  • And the reason why so many people may be thinking about throwing away those crutches

  • is because, thanks to science and technology, they have begun to know that they don't know so much

  • and that if they're to have more say in what happens to their lives,

  • more freedom to develop their abilities to the full,

  • they have to be helped towards that knowledge that they know exists and that they don't possess.

  • And by "helped towards that knowledge", I don't mean give everybody a computer and say "help yourself!"

  • Where would you even start?

  • No, I mean,

  • trying to find ways to translate the knowledge, to teach us to ask the right questions.

  • See, we're on the edge of a revolution in communications technology that is going to make that more possible than ever before.

  • Or, if that's not done, to cause an explosion of knowledge

  • that will leave those of us who don't have access to it as powerless as if we were deaf, dumb and blind.

  • And I don't think most people want that.

  • So what do we do about it? I don't know.

  • But maybe a good start

  • would be to recognize, within yourself, the ability to understand anything

  • because that ability's there, as long as it's explained clearly enough.

  • And then go and ask for explanations.

  • And If you're thinking right now, "What do I ask for?"

  • Ask yourself if there's anything in your life that you want changed.

  • That's where to start.

Well, that's no better a solution than any of the others, is it?
