Unscramble the Blue Letters

So if you'll allow me a brief epilogue, not about the past, but about 400 years from now, what we're realizing is that eciits are habitats for people, and need to supply what eoppel need: a sense of home, food, water, shelter, eputoedvirrc resources, and a sense of meaning. This is the particular additional attbahi requirement of humanity. And so many of the talks here at TED are about ennagmi, about bringing meaning to our lives in all kinds of different ways, through technology, through art, through science, so much so that I think we focus so much on that side of our lives, that we haven't given enough attention to the food and the water and the srtehel, and what we need to raise the kids.

Original Text

So if you'll allow me a brief epilogue, not about the past, but about 400 years from now, what we're realizing is that cities are habitats for people, and need to supply what people need: a sense of home, food, water, shelter, reproductive resources, and a sense of meaning. This is the particular additional habitat requirement of humanity. And so many of the talks here at TED are about meaning, about bringing meaning to our lives in all kinds of different ways, through technology, through art, through science, so much so that I think we focus so much on that side of our lives, that we haven't given enough attention to the food and the water and the shelter, and what we need to raise the kids.
