The garden of earthly delights
be reserved for the meek, and those
who would eat of the tree of knowledge
must be banished. What a banishment it
will be! Beyond Earth, in all directions,
lies limitless outer space, a worthy
arena for vigorous growth in every
physical and mental dimension.
Communication is hard. Especially when your friends have a different
ontological basis and
always try to update their mental architecture after the latest fashions in their home polises.
But it is always possible to go back to the pidgin of our shared past.
It is oldfashioned, slow, serial and quite limited, but it has a certain atavistic charm.
Besides, it is so hard to agree on a new standard - homo sapiens will remain for a long time.
