The Firewall in the Mind (Slide 49)
The final conclusion is inarticulable because unimaginable
And the final point is the one I can't articulate because we haven't imagined it yet And that is what I'd like to leave you with today, the idea that the boundaries are limitless, constructive experimentation with technologically advanced tools should be supported and encouraged, and be aware that the firewall is only in the mind. Overcome it. And thank you.
