Technology Quotes and Proverbs
Doc Childre, Founder and Chairman,
What will be required to increase the quality of life and health is a coming
together of technology and values, based on a scientific guiding principle that
people can agree on. Securing a healthy global future requires this guiding principle
to preserve freedom of spirit yet be as provable as the laws of physics. A guiding
principle that addresses the meaning of life and is compelling enough to generate
social cohesion and behaviors that serve the greater whole. After thirty years
of investigation and research, it has become clear to me that the answer lies
within the human heart.
Managing our emotions increases intuition and clarity. It helps us self-regulate
our brain chemicals and internal hormones. It gives us natural highs, the real

locked within our cells, just waiting for us to discover them.
Technology... the knack of so arranging the world that we don't have to experience
When computers (people) are networked, their power multiplies geometrically.
Not only can people share all that information inside their machines, but they
can reach out and instantly tap the power of other machines (people), essentially

In a few hundred years, when the history of our time will be written from a long-term
perspective, it is likely that the most important event historians will see is
not technology, not the Internet, not e-commerce. It is an unprecedented change
in the human condition. For the first time - literally - substantial and rapidly
growing numbers of people have choices. For the first time, they will have to
manage themselves. And society is totally unprepared for it.

In the last decade or so, science has discovered a tremendous amount about the
role emotions play in our lives. Researchers have found that even more than IQ,
your emotional awareness and abilities to handle feelings will determine your
success and happiness in all walks of life, including family relationships.
Technology is destructive only in the hands of people who do not realize that
they are one and the same process as the universe.
