"Work is of two kinds: first, altering the position of matter at or near the earth"s surface relatively to other such matter; second, telling other people to do so. The first kind is unpleasant and ill paid; the second is pleasant and highly paid."  Bertrand Russell

(Seems to me automation/robotics is fast substituting for the first kind of work; hopefully humans will be telling robots what to do ?  Al )

The link between idea and action is inseparable. Obviously, ideas inform actions, and in an era of Hi-tech/automation, brute "energy" would no longer be expended but, rather robots would be used to gain "mechanical advantage" in the penchant drive for world peace today.Use the "robot" and cause a Tsunami
