"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

"It is clear that the minds are the most important part of the universe, and that everything was established for their sake; that is, in choosing the order of things, the greatest account was taken of them; all things being arranged in such a way that they appear the more beautiful the more they are understood."

G. W. Leibniz

A Vision of a Future Sans Oligarchy

The near term discovery of the means to control aging coupled with matter/anti-matter power resources enabling the peopling of outer space will provide a point of discontinuity for humanity. The millennial combat against the families that have maintained a false superiority through manipulation of human frailty will end. And yet a new enemy will confront us.

For it is certain that as we leave behind the limiting mental shackles that have plagued our species up til now, the unfolding course of universal development will perforce continue to challenge our noetic powers. This will create a new quality of thought that will be shared as common property among humanity. Since the sting of death will be eliminated, the development of scientific and artistic genius will be sought as popular culture.

It would be a mistake to dismiss this vision as a quixotic fantasy, for in truth it is the only least action pathway that our successful journey beckons us all to boldly embrace. It is what Plato urged as the meaning of comedy. For only by leaving this planet will we finally begin the adult phase of society and come home to our truer selves.

Thus does hope spring eternal.
