      Damn it, I didn't want to be recognised... LOL

      Agreed. Just because a group attempts to point the way isn't
      necessarily a bad thing though. If the goal is understood to be
      un-attainable, and the group doesn't take itself too seriously in this
      respect, I think it's still a noble goal/attitude.

      Maybe to that extreme, yes... But I offer you the example of Joan of
      Arc. A peasant girl who has a spiritual experience, and saves her
      country against a foreign super-power. Unlikely, but it does happen.
      It *IS* possable. Now what if we could take a good thing and mass
      produce it? Think of what we would be like THEN. *Grinz*
