    Thanks, Joe.

    I still have some catching-up to do with your thinking, notably in
    the "tools area." Hope I am not misinterpreting your intention to
    caution against us biting off more than we can chew. Begin,
    therefore, with having motivated, capable individuals co-operating
    toward addressing the "16th most urgent, complex problem", i.e. How
    can the world's population be educated thoroughly and rapidly enough
    to recognize the urgency of addressing such most urgent problems as
    formulated in the Millennium Projects' "1999 The State of the Future"
    and peacefully insist, i.e. by democratic means, they indeed be
    addressed without undue delay.

    Is this a fair interpretation of what you wrote?
