Letters of the New-Year 2003 Issue

"A hundred failures would not matter, when single success could
change the destinity of the world."

Arthur C. CLARKE, 2001: A Space Odyssey

“One of the biggest roles of science fiction is to prepare people to accept the future without pain and to encourage a flexibility of mind. Politicians should read science fiction, not Western and detective stories. Two-thirds of 2001 is realistic – hardware and technology – to establish a background for the metaphysical, philosophical, and religious meanings later.”

Arthur C. CLARKE, "The Making of Kubrick's 2001", Edited by Jerome AGEL, 1970

"...For ordinary humans only two things were important:
Love and Death."

Arthur C. CLARKE, 3001: A Final Odyssey

Dear Friends,

We have dedicated this issue to Sir Arthur C. Clarke for his 85th Birthday. Sir Clarke is the master of both science and literature of our time. Furthermore, some call him as the "Prophet" of the 21st Century, since some of his prophecies have already become part of our daily life.

As Sir Clarke stated in the second quote above, We too wish that  "Politicians read science fiction, and not Western or detective stories."

Peace: Reality or Utopian Dream?

The World instead of investing in projects that would meet the basic needs of humanity, and more space exploration per Sir Clarke's vision, it has been forced in a direction that is more and more destructive and damaging. Yes, there are some investments into Space, however instead of a positive purpose such as building a ladder towards Sir Clarke's vision, it is for military strategic purposes.

The US Congress easily passed a budget as large as 350 billion dollars for a possible war against Iraq, when there still is not sufficient effort to invest for education, world hunger, health, social and economic development... Most of the world population is under a heavy burden in meeting necessities of daily life. Whether we realize it or not, we have become modern slaves of our time... Freedom does not seem to exist. Freedom is a big lie.

Does any one care?

In all fairness those who care are the same as those who do not have enough sources or power  to facilitate change . Thus, we, as individuals, have the freedom of expression i.e. to say whatever we like to say, but somewhat we lack the ability to convert our thoughts and words to acquire the power to change some decisions that we find as deadly for humanity.

I wish, the US and the world decisions makers could've read, comprehended, imagined and invested more than ever into Sir Clarke's visions and great inventions... I, as an ordinary individual, while expressing my thoughts, am aware of the fact, and quite frustrated that my thoughts will not reverse the fast march towards more advanced weapons, nor wars.

I want to live in a world that doesn't have an ongoing war, and all natural and human resources could be switched and transformed only to elevate mankind's soul, mind and lives for better tomorrows on Earth and in the Space.

The mainstream media one way or another is leading our world to a war... I also wish, they would rather highlight Sir Clarke's visions to the rest of the world.

Dear Sir Clarke,

Thank you very much, for introducing us to an  unimaginable -mostly- beautiful and hopeful future which some part of it have already become part of our daily life...

And thank you very much Julie Mardin for the article she wrote, that dedicated this issue to Sir Clarke.

And most of all to you our readers thank you so much for visiting and being part of the Light Millennium's global e-platform.

without war through out the year...
