“Still photographs are the most powerful weapons in the world”
A photograph is one of the best ways to see through different aspects of history. There are outstanding photographs taken in history that had strong feelings attached to them and became very popular worldwide.

We believe that we are the most powerful beings with the power to build massive cities just within few years or, conversely, destroy them all just in a second with thousands of nuclear strikes.

In our time, when budget smartphones were more powerful than supercomputers 30 years ago, you no longer notice scientific breakthroughs. Today, it seems like science has stopped and focused only on modifying commodities like improving cameras for new iPhones or creating things that are not truly important for the existence of humanity. But as I said — ‘it seems like’, because you do not look in scientific journals and you only see popular news, which usually tells about new smartphones and gaming consoles. In fact, science is making new discoveries that until recently seemed like science fiction.
In science fiction…

Over time, the enthusiasm fades away, and you are left alone with a total reluctance to leave your comfort zone. You begin to live as you are used to, and not as you dreamed.
