The feeling of unreality comes from a belief that the profession one wishes to join mainly involves using computers, and that the industry they expect to be workin in is about as old as they are. The feeling of helplessness comes from the extreme difficulty in getting them to believe anything else. Ignorance of the past makes the future seem merely an enlarement of the present. Professionals must be eager to command the future, not content to surrender to it.
