It is my pleasure to share with you again my weekly discoveries and proofs  of progress in the real world.
Here I confess you that in addition to my great intellectual loves, rather harmonious and happy: :
there exists a third one, as passionate as the others, but not harmonious at all, mixed with silent and not so silent desperation- the love of Progress. It can survive only by associations with the other two stories of love. Outside technology, it is quite impossible to find signs of progress...Morally, socially, politically, financially the World is broken and in regress. I will tell you more about this in the near future.
