"It does not suffice to change the world. We do that anyway. And to a large extent that happens even without our involvement.
In addition we have to interpret this change. Precisely in order to change it.
So that the world does not change without us. And ultimately into a world without us."

(Günther Anders, 1980, The Outdatedness of Human Beings 2.)
