has enabled us to make enormous strides in virtually every aspect
of life. Even so, our psyches and bodies remain almost identical
to that of our primitive ancestors. We exhibit the force of this
conflict individually as well as globally. Our struggle is to
bridge this gap before it becomes unattainable and leads to our
undoing.” Barry Entner
