Via @dbiello, super HG Wells quote: “Human history…a race between education and catastrophe…. Yet, clumsily or smoothly, the world, it seems, progresses and will progress.”

Deeply relates to my notion of “Knowosphere”:

"We’ve long been in a race between our potency and awareness, but the fast-expanding ‘knowosphere’ — the interlaced, light-speed, super-cheap fabric of information and discourse enveloping the physical planet – can propel awareness into the lead for good.”
