You are becoming Gods

Very often I listen to music to concentrate. The fewer words, the better, the more repetitive and familiar the better. So this tends to fall into the broad categories of classical, or ambient – the latter involves plenty of Orbital, Orb, FSOL and so on. I find it hard not to track other peoples conversations and react similarly when they get frustrated…. so it works out okay… if a little isolating at times… I get things done with less annoyance for all involved.

Anyway – today – the playlist threw up ‘You Lot’ from Orbital, from the album Blue Album – which works its way around the following quote which the internet attributes to the author Stephen Baxter:

“You are becoming Gods. There’s a new master of creation, and it’s you! Unraveled DNA, and at the same time you’re cultivating bacteria strong enough to kill every living thing! Do you think you are ready for that much power? You lot? You lot? Cheeky bastards. You’re running around science like kids with guns, creating a new world, while the world you’ve got is stinking, but, hands up, hands up anyone who thinks you’ve got it right. Yeah, there’s always one. I can see you. If you want the position of God then take the responsibility.”

I rather like that. I like that a LOT. Bravo, that man.
