If there were no airlines I would not live far away in Costa Rica. I would have stayed near my children and grandchildren like in olden times and the air would not be polluted by planes. I wonder therefore if airplanes are really a progress. I wonder what the total distances covered by air and by car are for an American citizen in a lifetime. And the US is eager to sell this apparent 'progress' to the so-called 'underdeveloped', 'poor, retarded' people of the third world.
"You are so right dear Robert, all too often what westerners call progress are real disasters for me."

Chapter 8, Of Health
It is not a detailed science of eating, fasting, breathing and walking which will give a human optimum performance: it is the application of a few basic, common sense rules which are mountains compared with the little bushes advocated by proliferating health, exercise, breathing, nutritional and jogging industries.
These simple, basic rules are:
totally avoid alcohol and drugs
totally avoid smoking;
do not overeat.
Add to that exercise and happiness and you have a good chance of living a hundred years.
