Magazine (WE Review) and Catalog founded by Stewart Brand
manifesto Original Catalog intro by Stewart Brand: WeAreAsGods and might as well get good at it. So far remotely done power and glory - as via government, big business, formal education, church - has succeeded to the point where gross defects obscure actual gains (Scale Vs Consolidation). In response to this dilemma and to these gains, a realm of intimate, personal power is developing - the power of individuals to conduct their own education, find their own inspiration, shape their own environment, and share the adventure with whoever is interested. Tools that aid this process are sought and promoted by the Whole Earth Catalog.
the WeAreAsGods was inspired by Edmund Leach, A Runaway World ISBN:0563074337 Men have become like gods. Isn't it about time that we understood our divinity?

Sounds like Evolution.
