"The world is in a dangerous situation...It is not that we may simply blow up the planet with nuclear bombs, strangle ourselves with over-population, destroy natural resources through poor conservation, or ruin the soil and its products with improperly understood chemicals and pesticides... The problem is more basic: the root of the matter is the way in which we feel and conceive of ourselves as human beings; our sensation of being alive, of individual existence and identity." - Alan Watts
