Status: O POLYMATHEMATICS *************** I was staying at Dunn's Freehold, recuperating from wounds received during an unfortunate mutant raid. Dunn chose to share his philosophy over dinner. "It was the burden of technology that did it," averred my host. "Society relied on complex machinery that few could understand, let alone repair. All it took was one global catastrophe to bring about anarchy." Dunn lit a pipe. "We won't return there. We'll stay small. Everybody retains self-sufficiency, and we'll survive anything." Dunn's daughter toddled in, bawling: "Daddy! My biodrone won't metabolize simple sugars! Can you fix it?" Dunn smiled. "Of course, honey. Give it here." -- This post is COPYRIGHT 1995, Andrew Solberg. All rights reserved.
