Robert Persig RIP


The way to solve the conflict between human values and technology needs is not to run away from technology. That's impossible. The way to resolve the conflict is to break down the barriers of dualistic thought that prevent a real understanding of what technology is--not an exploitation of nature, but a fusion of nature and the human spirit into a new kind of creation that transcends both.

  1. I read the book and it wasn't an explanation of zen or of the art of motorcycle maintenance. However, I think that Persig (RIP) was on the right track.

    1. I had a hard time going through it the first time, but it is a book you can go back to again and again. There is a lot there.
