Now I feel like even more of a relic, but this time I'm a good relic, at least.

Where is the Life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
The cycles of Heaven in twenty centuries
Bring us farther from GOD and nearer to the Dust.

Theophrastus Bombastus von Hoenhenheim den Sidste

Thank you, reading essay has been good for my soul.

My students are focused and ambitious, my colleagues laugh to scorn the suggestion that the humanities have anything to teach us tough guy scientists. The work a day world conspires to smother in its crib any conviction that cultivation of the mind is a higher good that is worthy in its own right.

That's why I come here, to share a bit of warmth and enlightenment with the smart guys. 'Cause it's a damned cold world out there.
