about

"Rapidly we approach the final phase of the EXTENSIONS of man- the technological simulation of consciousness." -Marshall McLuhan, Understanding Media, 1964.

2014 marks the 103rd birthday of Canadian visionary Marshall McLuhan. With each passing year the revelatory nature of his prophetic vision becomes more evident. The global village is becoming a distinct reality in this technological age. McLuhan’s ability to predict the full impact of technology and media on our culture decades in advance is unprecedented. And his deep concern and warnings to us in these drastic changes in civilization are rarely heeded as we head full-steam ahead past the point of no-return, the consequences which are increasingly self-evident.
