The obscurantist elites… understood [long ago] that, if they wanted to survive in comfort, they had to stop pretending, even in their dreams, to share the earth with the rest of the world.Bruno Latour in Down to Earth
Rockets and fireworks discharged, sending each on its course. One an escapist pipedream, another a fight for life. One dreams of another world, another knows we only have this one. One entertains, another inspires anxiety and hope. A technological eschatology reserved for a few, ever deferred for the many. To those hiding in their bunkers, stations, and dreamworld: Wake up, share the earth!
