Since my youth I had been pondering about the purpose of man's existence and his place in the universe. I have finally come to the following tentative conclusion: Man is merely a component in an evolving and self organizing universe. He has nevertheless been allowed to enjoy a relatively short period of freedom before he is totally incorporated in an advanced super-society whereupon he would eventually lose his freedom entirely!
Haven't his cells done just that before him, or his organelles before his cells, or his molecules before his organelles, or his atoms before his molecules? We are now enjoying our last few centuries of freedom.
