It has been stated that humankind’s greatest resources
are intellect, imagination, and strength of will:
intellect, to generate ever-greater strategies
for optimal coexistence, communication, and exchange,
imagination, to model and test these strategies,
and strength of will, to administer and protect the variety
of resources we use to maintain them.
It is equally reasonable to suggest
that humankind’s greatest resource
is the accumulated knowledge
of generalized principles
which represent the behavior of all events
that occur within the knowable universe.
