“Chapel Perilous, that vortex where cosmological speculations, coincidences, and paranoia seem to multiply and then collapse, compelling belief or lunacy, wisdom or agnosticism.” ~Robert Anton Wilson

    Why the Future Doesn't Need Us (great article!)

    Post by Lucid Memes on Sat Feb 14, 2009 2:50 pm

    this is one of the best articles i've ever read regarding this subject. i used to be a supporter of transhumanist ideals when i was in college...but that's only because i never fully understood the negative aspects that would come from it. that's because transhumanists rarely talk about the negatives openly to the public. but if they do, they'll always pitch it as a necessary step for an overall greater good...they even make it sound inevitable.

    basically, transhumanists want to make a paradise on earth. but there's a catch...the overwhelming majority of the people on earth are not invited. go figure!

    the article is lengthy, but its well worth the read

    Don't wanna disrupt that 10 minute attention span molly lol. Anything other than mindless drama and trivia is too hard to pay attention to if your an entertainment addict with an shockingly short attention span and vocabulary lol.
