We can no longer see ourselves as separate from the natural world or our technology, but as a part of them, integrated, codependent, and entangled.Quantum entanglement.

It is high time.But, even if it turns out that we have reached the point where we are ready to do something, we come face to face with the reasonably difficult question of what we should do.
