so much other technology, as a drug to sedate us further, to save us from waking. This is our choice, and we shall have to make it quickly.


NOTES
1.
James Lovelock, "Stand Up For Gaia" (Schumacher Lecture 1988, in Resurgence 29, July-August 1988. Obtainable from Schumacher Book Service, Ford House, Hartland, Bideford, Devon, UK).
2.
I have tried to discuss the fascinating problem of how we can do full justice to the importance of science without somehow losing other essential aspects of life in Wisdom, Information and Wonder: What Is Knowledge For? ( London and New York: Routledge, 1989). Other helpful discussions of this can be found in Pluto Republic by Peter B. Medawar ( Oxford University Press, 1984) and, more recently, in The Element of Fire: Science, Art and the Human World by Anthony O'Hear ( London and New York: Routledge, 1988.)
3.
I have discussed the nature, meaning, and pathology of these ideas briefly in my book Beast and Man: The Roots of Human Nature ( Washington, D.C.: New American Library Paperback, 1978) Chapters 7 and 8, and more fully in Evolution as a Religion ( London: Methuen Inc., 1985).
4.
See John D. Barrow and Frank R. Tipler, The Anthropic Cosmological Principle ( Oxford and New York: Oxford University Press, 1986), concluding passage.
5.
See, for example, Stephen Hawking, A Brief History of Time ( London: Bantam Press, 1988), pp. 174-75: "If we do discover a complete theory [of the physical laws governing motion in the universe] it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason for then we would know the mind of God."
