Re: [Yasmin_discussions] Science, Technology, Art, POETRY

Dear Roger

To the references of (new media) poetry and Leonardo (in LEA
and in the Book Series) that you mention in your

I think that apart from some very short periods and only in
very few countries, we (human beings at large) have always
lived in a "dangerous age". I also think that art (and not
only poetry) is vital for survival.
