"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 )

However, this not to say that ideas should not be backed up by actions.Our frantic efforts in this direction should be sustained and would not be substituted by robotic ideas,but as complementary mechanisms for world peace. Thus, the two approaches go pari- pasu.

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
