        2002 IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON
            SYSTEMS, MAN AND CYBERNETICS
        October 6-9, 2002, Hammamet - Tunisia

     "Bridging the Digital Divide for Cyber-development,
       Human Progress, Understanding and Prosperity"
     ====================================

    Many of us can guess what you may be referring to... and have had
    similar,
    complex thoughts.

    One small, amusing aspect to this. I remember joking with some friends
    once: "many engineers
    clearly need less fixation with twelve-digit precision... but in
    politics
    and law and religion we clearly have too much fuzziness
    already."

    But perhaps that was a parochial view. It is clear, in the larger
    stage,
    that extreme black-and-white polar thinking
    underlies many of the basic problems, even today. (Or is it a question
    of
    membership functions being too narrow
    in some areas and too wide in others?) Who knows...

    Best of luck to us all...
