“Creativity is imagining something that isn't there and making it real.”
Spencer Wells, Pandora's Seed: The Unforeseen Cost of Civilization

“As often happens in science, technology has opened up a field to new ways of solving old riddles – often providing startling answers.”
Spencer Wells, The Journey Of Man: A Genetic Odyssey

“The biggest revolution of the past 50,000 years of human history was not the advent of the Internet, the growth of the industrial age out of the seeds of the Enlightenment, or the development of modern methods of long-distance navigation. Rather, it was when a few people living in several locations around the world decided to stop gathering from the land, abiding by limits set in place by nature, and started growing their food.”
Spencer Wells, Pandora's Seed: The Unforeseen Cost of Civilization
