Transhuman Mailing List

Whilst discussing with a friend how difficult it would be to use a brain emulation to predict someone's actions, a tiny speck
of dust floated through my field of view as if to illustrate the point.

I have decided as a result of seeing the speck that I'm going to attack death with renewed vigour, and if I succeed in
conquering it, then that speck will be one of the most important specks in man's evolution.

I ask you to do something transhuman today, in honour of the speck.

Way to go, Mark. Good luck.

What am I going to do? Well, as soon as I hit the Send button on this message, I'm going to find out what education I need to
achieve my goals, and where I can get it. Then I'm going to make the entry requirements, and sign up. That inevitably means a
big reduction in income <gulp>, but there's just a chance it could save my life.

Mark is right. The philosophy has gone on for long enough. It's time for action.
