Ouspensky on Mechanization

“The mechanization you speak of is not at all dangerous.  A man may be a man” (he emphasized this word), “while working with machines.  There is another kind of mechanization which is much more dangerous: being a machine oneself.”

-Ouspensky, recalling the words of Gurdjieff, In Search of the Miraculous

Late Heidegger anyone?
