It is understandable that we who live on this planet should be deceived by the local abundance of life, and the wherewithal for life, into thinking that what is rare is common and what is precious is cheap. It will be an act of historic vandalism to precipitate a mass extinction because we choose not to do now what we will later be obliged to do anyway.

|A point will no doubt come when the uncomfortable future impinges upon the comfortable present - and things will then be done to restore the comforts lost, if that is then possible; meanwhile, simulation is a part of what can be done, with its ability to bring into a safe numerical present some of the awkwardness of the future, the past, the distant and the downright dangerous.|
