Only during the last 6 lifetimes did masses of men ever see a printed word. Only during the last four has it been possible to measure time with any precision. Only during the last two has anyone anywhere ever used an electric motor. And the overwhelming majority of all the material goods we use in daily life have been developed within the present 800th lifetime. - Alvin Toffler - 1970
