Cup your palm, move it around on a table and a cursor on the screen hovers. Tap on the table like you would click a real mouse, and the computer responds.

Think about all the spinoffs from the wiimote.
And now you're telling me I can 'cup the palm of my hand' and 'move it around' and 'tap my fingers' grrrr. Can't wait.

Nothing moves us backwards faster than progress.

I couldn't agree more. I feel Science is renewed Christianity.

Space exploration is the desire to go to heaven.
Genetic engineering is playing at God.
Weaponary is the power of the armagedon.
AI is removing the soul from the body.

God is real because God says so, Science is real because science proves it.
Priests wear clothing for service, Scientists put on their white robes.
A Priest's holy place is the Church, a Scientist's is the Lab.
Christian believers pray, recite, and count rosmary beads efectively nullifying themselves as thinking people while Tech believers watch TV, play video games and get on social networks.
A Christian's place of worship is the chapel, new world order citizenes worship at the computer.
Christians light candles at the chapel. How many LED's are glowing on your desk right now?

They are both used to control us, Slave! (myself included)
