Is it progress if a cannibal learns to use a knife and fork ?

asked Jerzy Lec
(born Baron Stanisław Jerzy de Tusch-Letz, 1909-1966)
Well, yes, of course.
We define progress almost entirely by learned behaviour
and by gadgets,
many of which are making the world uninhabitable
except for secret, dedicated baby-eating cannibals.
