|Something to ponder: "The last word of ignorance is the man who says of
an animal or plant: 'What good is it?' If the land mechanism as a whole is
good, then every part is good, whether we understand it or not. If the
biota, in the course of aeons, has built something we like, but do not
understand, then who but a fool would discard seemingly useless parts?
To keep every cog and wheel is the first precaution of intelligent tinkering."
