It seems we live in a world of borrowed time, we've lowered the bar and learned to strive to maintain a status quo that serves no one and it barely serves us as individuals. We are constantly hammered with, "if it hasn't been done, it can't be done." I'm glad they came up with the wheel, when they did, or we'd probably be still debating it.
Frodo would love this place. It is absolutely clever and beautiful.
