Whether you believe a long distance operator called Almighty God is the ultimate spin doctor working the ropes, or whether you believe the universal order of tiny atoms, the hale of existence, started its spin long ago and far away and maintains itself according to that (a world winding down?) rather ordered disorder, it is a cold hard fact of contemporary life that technology is now defiantly in place to exterminate the whole of earthly creation with a short series of poisonous belts seething of extreme prejudice.

But as with most phenomena, the dual nature of technology is such that it can guide and help maneuver our biological souls to establish a heaven right here upon earth with a host of nifty works in which we the living can each celebrate, given the chance.
