Why

  • To Make a Difference in the World   

    • One of the goals of All We Need To Know is to show how we are all part of something that is greater than ourselves. That our actions do matter.  And that we have a responsibility as stewards of life on Earth to sustain our existence and our quest for knowledge, as Stephen Hawkings so eloquently puts it, "...until the secrets of the universe have been revealed and until we can confidently say that we know the mind of God".

      To act as gods before we have achieved this knowledge and to place ourselves above nature, just because we have discovered how to exploit it, is not only catastrophically dangerous, it is the greatest act of irresponsibility and of hubris imaginable.
