This map illustrates the need for a balance of black and white areas... The image is the clearest when there is a balance of each color. Too much is just as bad as not enough.

"Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home—so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any map of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person: The neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm or office where he works. Such are the places where every man, woman and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world." - Eleanor Roosevelt (1884–1962)

"How can the ant know the pattern of the carpet ?" - Persian poet

My Crazy Dream

Thursday night I dreamt that I was walking along the beach and I came across an ancient oil lantern sticking out of the sand. When I rubbed the sand off with a towel, a genie popped out and offered to grant me a wish. I went to get a map of the world from my car, circled the Middle East, and told the genie, "I wish you to bring peace in this region".

After 10 long minutes of deliberation, the genie replies, "Gee, there are lots of problems there with Iraq, Israel, Lebanon,and all those other places. This is awfully embarrassing; I've never had to do this before, but I'm just going to have to ask you for another wish. This one is just too much for me".

Taken aback, I thought for awhile and said, "OK then, I wish that I could build an interface to all the knowledge in the world."

After another deliberation the genie finally asks, "Could I see that map again?"
