    Mr. Holmes was prescient beyond his understanding. The "technological change and material growth" Ram Dass describes are a direct result of cheap energy.

    Put another way by some famous scientist/philosopher dude:

    "Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex... It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction."
