Cut and paste is more than a computer shortcut. It’s the paradox of our times.

However, reducing the brain to automata poses serious consequences. It undermines thinking into desultory action. It turns man into a machine.
Machines reproduce. They don’t think and create new things, yet. God gave humans brain to release them from the prison of biology.
Everything is practice. Repetition is not an excuse to skip steps. The power of habit compels the human to start all over again.
