Marshall McLuhan 1965 - The Future of Man in the Electric Age

"You can not cope with vast amounts of information in the old, fragmentary, classified patterns. You tend to look for mythic and structural forms in order to manage such complex data."

"We have never stopped interfering drastically with ourselves by every technology we could latch on to. We have absolutely disrupted our lives over and over again."

"The need to become completely autonomous and aware of all the consequences of all that we are doing before the consequences occur is where we are heading..."
