Clock of the Long Now: Time and Responsibility
by Stewart Brand
Probably The Clock of the Long Now by Stewart Brand is maybe the most influential book on me. There’s one chapter of it, which, for me, it was really life changing. I think it’s called the layers of civilization. And it, basically, just talks about the six or seven layers of society and kind of how they interact with each other. And it kind of explains and puts the structure of explaining almost everything that you’d ever wondered about in just a few pages.— Phil Libin, source
