"The more technical our world becomes, the more essential it is that we see the whole of life as an art form, protecting the creative nature of mankind from an exclusively symbiotic existence with electronics. We need to protect nature's provision for the individual's right to fulfill his own spiritual growth along with his physical development. With the passing of time there may be fewer areas for the rugged individualist to explore...The situation is much different with one's inner space. No sooner is it explored than it wants to yield up new territories potent with new discoveries resulting in ever changing ways of viewing life around us. We find ourselves relating differently to all we know as a result of these journeys within."
