Has the world been small because of these technological advancements?

    Everything that explains the world has in fact explained a world that does not exist, a world in which men are at the center of the human enterprise and women are at the margin "helping" them. Such a world does not exist—never has.
    (Gerda Lerner (b. 1920), U.S. educator, author. Quoted in Ms. (New York, Sept. 1981).)

    What has history to do with me? Mine is the first and only world! I want to report how I find the world. What others have told me about the world is a very small and incidental part of my experience. I have to judge the world, to measure things.

    Evil is ... a moral entity and not a created one, an eternal and not a perishable entity: it existed before the world; it constituted the monstrous, the execrable being who was also to fashion such a hideous world. It will hence exist after the creatures which people this world.
    (Marquis de Sade (1740-1814), French author. Saint-Fond, in L'Histoire de Juliette, ou les Prospérités du Vice, pt. 2 (1797).)

    The world is ... the natural setting of, and field for, all my thoughts and all my explicit perceptions. Truth does not "inhabit" only "the inner man," or more accurately, there is no inner man, man is in the world, and only in the world does he know himself.
    (Maurice Merleau-Ponty (1907-1961), French philosopher. Phenomenology of Perception, preface (1945).)

    (James Baldwin (1924-1987), U.S. author. conversation in London, Nov. 4, 1971, with Nikki Giovanni. A Dialogue (1973).)

    [Children] do not yet lie to themselves and therefore have not entered upon that important tacit agreement which marks admission into the adult world, to wit, that I will respect your lies if you will agree to let mine alone. That unwritten contract is one of the clear dividing lines between the world of childhood and the world of adulthood.
    (Leontine Young (20th century), U.S. social worker and author. Life Among the Giants, ch. 2 (1965).)

    If we cannot accept the importance of the world, which considers itself important, if in the midst of that world our laughter finds no echo, we have but one choice: to take the world as a whole and make it the object of our game; to turn it into a toy.
    (Milan Kundera (b. 1929), Czech author, critic. Immortality, pt. 7, ch. 5 (1991).)
