"People stopped being human(and become machines) in 1913. That was the year Henry Ford put his cars on rollers and made his workers adopt the speed of the assembly line. At first, workers rebelled. They quit in droves, unable to accustom their bodies to the new pace of the age. since then, however, the adaption has been passed down: we've all inherited it to some degree, so that we plug right into joysticks and remotes to repetitive motions of a hundred kinds."
