Excerpt From 'Microcosm'

MATTER is subordinate to mind and spirit and can only be comprehended by free men. As computers master new levels of the hierarchy of knowledge, human beings can rise to new pinnacles of vision and power and discover new continents of higher truth. As Carver Mead declared in his defense of Boltzmann, the universe offers infinite degrees of freedom. The computer will give mankind new vessels to rule the waves of possibility. Its promise can be betrayed only by the abandonment of the freedom and faith that made it possible. Wielding the power of knowledge, the human mind is the great and growing disequilibrium at the center of the universe. ... Conquering the microcosm, mind transcends every entropic trap and overthrows matter itself. This is the true significance of the story of the microcosm and the meaning of the quantum era.
