We live in dangerous times. Our age is marked by false pride. We do not celebrate great scientific achievements. It is not the joy of the conquest of disease. Nor are we celebrating the discovery of new continents or exo-planets. The latter are great discoveries of modern astronomy, not unlike the great age of exploration. Yet, they exist outside any kind of celebration or popular imagination.
