At a conference of high-tech leaders in Rancho Mirage, Calif., hosted by computer visionary George Gilder, the digerati elite seem to be mastering the universe. The hottest topic here is Java, software that exists not in the individual computer, but out on the Internet. The user downloads Java from the Net on an ad hoc basis to perform a certain task. Scott McNealy, chairman of Sun Microsystems, predicted that Java software would connect one's computer, automobile, job, even medical history, into a grand system of systems.

LOGICALLY SPEAKING, it doesn't make a lot of sense: Four white guys from Australia paying tribute to the legacy of the game-changing soul music powerhouse that was Motown Records in the 1960s and '70s. But all you need to know about Human Nature is that it's been endorsed by no less a figure than Smokey Robinson, arguably the most important person in Motown history save for label founder Berry Gordy Jr. Judging by Monday's performance at Caesars Atlantic City, Robinson is right on the money.

Samantha Sorid's award-winning science project taught her a lesson about human nature. Including her own. "If you put your mind to it, you can do anything," says Sorid, 14, who is in eighth grade at Harrington Middle School in Mount Laurel. Her findings about her fellow humans were less uplifting. About those, more in a moment. Let's just say that we the people do the right thing less often than we'd like to believe. Titled "Money or Morality," Sorid's project took first place for her age group in the human-behavior category of the Coriell Institute Science Fair.

If for no other reason than because it's what they've done all season, 76ers coach Doug Collins expects his guys to play well on Sunday. After Friday's practice, Collins called Sunday's elimination game - the Sixers trail the Miami Heat, three games to none, in this best-of-seven series - a "human nature" test. "Are you going to let human nature take over when the game gets tough and say, 'We're down 0-3, how bad do you want to go back to Miami?' " Collins said. Collins believes he knows how his players will respond.

The aisles are jammed. The seats are squeezed. The bodies of utter strangers are touch-dancing to the sway of a moving vehicle. From the Paoli local to the Market-Frankford El, from the No. 23 bus to the PATCO High-Speed Line, it happens every workday. Outwardly, commuters tend to be stoical. Inside, there is mutiny. When the rubber meets the road on the Sardine City Line, stress is on board, too, notes John Aiello, environmental psychologist and Rutgers University professor. Crowded travelers may not realize it, he says, but their bodies reveal "the elevated levels of arousal" that signal stress.

RE THE back-page headline "The Messiah"/"The 2nd coming" (Aug. 4): I have written previously regarding the inappropriateness, and by now one has to assume downright disdain, with which the Daily News misuses religion, and in particular, Christianity, to create humorous(?) or witty(?) headlines of news and sporting events. You once again prove my opinion correct by allowing the above-mentioned headline to be published. As a Roman Catholic and a Philly sports fan, I find no justification for such an egregious offense.

EVERYONE knows that even miracle drugs have side effects. Penicillin and other antibiotics initially caused intestinal bleeding as does aspirin. Even Tylenol can kill the kidneys. Painkillers cause addictions (and cancer-killing radiation also kills human hair and causes terrible, sickening nausea). Did we abandon these drugs? No! Scientists worked on them until we minimized the negatives. In a world of insane materialism, where a little excellence is rewarded with an absurd amount of money, power and idolatry, human nature reaches for any advantage.

One of the many sad aspects of the space shuttle explosion was the manner in which the press handled reporting on the seven casualties. The death of the "civilian" schoolteacher completely overshadowed the deaths of the six "professional" crew members who dedicated their lives to space exploration for our country. Would the grief-stricken faces of the mission commander's family have generated as much sympathy? I am reminded at this time of the freeing of the Iranian hostages and our unbounded enthusiasm and gratitude which we could not spare for the Vietnam veterans.

Medicine is "the science and art dealing with the management and cure of disease. " Disease, not health, is the focus of modern medicine. Our current medical system is a system organized against disease, not for health. In the United States we have an extremely sophisticated, well-structured medical care system - but no coherent, well-defined policy directed toward the health and welfare population. We share this dubious distinction with one other industrialized nation - South Africa.

LAST SEASON, all Villanova's basketball team did was something no other Villanova team had ever done. The Wildcats went 28-3. The only problem was, that was the regular season. Then came the postseason, where they lost their opening game in the Big East Tournament as the top seed and their second game in the NCAA Tournament as a No. 2. And these days, what you do or don't do in March is what most folks tend to remember most. Now, the Wildcats return four starters and are the overwhelming pick to win the conference again.

HUMAN NATURE is a vocal quartet consisting of four white young men from suburban Sydney, Australia, whose stock-in-trade is the Motown Records canon of the 1960s and '70s. As such, it's easy to dismiss the unit, which tonight begins a two-weekend run at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. After all, how could these guys do justice to music made by African-Americans before, in some cases, they were even born? If you agree with those sentiments, we suggest you take it up with Smokey Robinson - yes, that Smokey Robinson, the one who wrote and sang some of the most enduring songs in pop-music history.

MOST stand-up comics mine such topics as relationships and parenthood for laughs. But Colin Quinn has much bigger fish to fry. In 2010, Quinn, 55, debuted "Long Story Short," his hit one-man Broadway show that took a jaundiced - but hilarious - look at world history. Now, he's journeying through the past again with "Unconstitutional," which Philadelphia Theatre Company is presenting today through July 6 at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre. In case the title doesn't tip you off, "Unconstitutional" is a humorous examination of the four-page document - conjured here in Philly, in 1787 - that sets forth how America is to be governed.

The Humans A Novel By Matt Haig Simon & Schuster. 256 pp. $25. Reviewed by Glenn C. Altschuler   On Vonnadoria, there are no comforting delusions, no religion, no love, hate, passion, or remorse, no names, no husbands or wives, no death. Reason reigns, and every action originates in a logical motive. Vonnadorians can travel great distances, rearrange their biological ingredients, renew and replenish them. They understand that if the rate of mathematical advancement of Earthlings "exceeds their psychological maturity, then action needs to be taken.

DESPITE popular belief, sometimes "There's no place like the road. " At least that's what the 76ers are hoping as Wednesday they'll begin a mini-road trip with three games in 4 days. It begins in New Orleans and continues in Boston on Friday and Toronto on Saturday. Perhaps getting away will rid the team and the coaches of the memories of two blowout losses to the New York Knicks. But getting away can't cure all woes; the Sixers must do some of that themselves. First and foremost, they must do a better job of putting the ball in the basket, as they've shot only 37.2 percent (93-for-250)

NEW ORLEANS - Andy Reid has never been this close to the edge, not in all of his time coaching the Eagles. He has been 3-4 before, and had quarterback issues before, and been without some obvious answers on defense before - but this is different. We all know it is different. Which leads to a question: Can there be a must-win game in the first week of November in the National Football League? Most years, this is an amateur's question. We all have watched enough professional football to know that, as long as you don't completely shoot your way out of the thing before Thanksgiving, you still have a chance.
