    Forget Nostradamus. Look into Nineteenth Century Transcendentalist works for hints of the future, for instance this quotation from Walt Whitman, SONG OF MYSELF:.31“I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey work of the stars,And the pismire is equally perfect, and a grain of sand, and the eggof the wren,And the tree-toad is a chef-d’oeuvre for the highest,And the running *blackberry would adorn the *parlors of heaven,And the narrowest hinge in my hand puts to scorn all machinery,And the cow crunching with depress’d head surpasses any statue,And a *mouse is miracle enough to stagger *sextillions of infidels.”.*the Blackberry, of course*Internet cafes?*the ubiquitous computer mouse*Internet p-orn?.And, wow — LEAVES OF GRASS!
