[extropy-chat] a surprising quote

The terrifying acceleration of history brought us by technology can be 
overcome by a revolution of the mind, a poetic revolution. Politics are the 
enemy; they reduce everything to a false two-dimensional image of our needs 
and our fate. We need much more than that.

It is on the level of the paramyth, of the philosophical dream, that we 
will find all the answers that we need. The blinding utopia! And I have no 
doubt that very soon the first examples of the new literature, of the new 
esoteric fiction, will appear and that it will immediately change the face 
of the world, by magic as it were.
