There was a time where the steam engine powered machines was considered breathtakingly modern
There was a time where the news of a human flying was disregarded as nonsense
There was a time where the thought of the internet was reserved to the most far-reaching science-fiction authors
Now these things surround us with most people hardly realising that they are living in a world most futurists couldn't have dreamt of fifty years ago
Now-a-days it is common for characters to drive cars with LED-lamps, talk in a cellphone, or downloading an app on their brand new smartphone. And no one gives it second thought.
The same will happen in the future
The only sovereign you can allow to rule you is reason..... Faith and feelings are the darkness to reason's light
- Richard Rahl and Zeddicus Zorander, protagonists in the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind
