Weekly Science Report

September 6, 2019
 
“It will be great if human beings were great at being human and if all of mankind were made
up of all kind women and kind men.  It would be wonderful if common knowledge was
knowledge commonly known and if the light from being enlightened into every heart was
shown.  It would glorious if neighbors were neighborly and indifference a forgotten word.  It
would be awesome if we shared everything and being greedy was absurd.  It would be
spectacular if the golden rule was golden to every man and the good things that we ever did
was everything that we can.”
