I'm afraid that the following syllogism may be used by some in the future:

Turing lies with men
Therefore machines do not think

Of all things communication is the most wonderful.
The only equality that is important, or indeed conceivable, is equality of being. Inequality in the various aspects of man is inevitable and even welcome; is it the basis of any rich and complex life. The inequality that is evil is inequality which denies the essential equality of being.
Raymond Williams, Culture and Society, 1780-1950, p. 317
The eternal, in any case, is far more the ruffle on a dress than some idea.
Walter Benjamin, The Arcades Project
