FEATURED QUOTE(S): 

  • “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.“ – Edmund Burke
  • "We can now edit the "software" of the human cell (our DNA). Today 100's of companies are reprogramming human viruses to deliver updates to the human-computer. Today this technology is being used to cure incurable diseases, but the capabilities are doubling every year while the cost halves. In that environment, anything is possible; if you can dream it you can do it." - Jeff Galvin
