: I read this recently. "Having tamed the lightning, we are now teaching sand to think." Does anyone know anything about this quote? - Patty
I saw tons of web sites with the "taming lightning" part of your phrase as a reference to Benjamin Franklin who did some early experiments with electricity.
I will keep looking for you.
