Pragmatically envisioning better humans
4 tuntia sitten
People say, “Gee, I don’t want to be a machine.” They’re thinking of the machines they know today, and that’s not the kind of machine I’m talking about. I’m talking about a machine—and we’ll probably need a different word by then—that’s just as subtle and supple and emotional as humans are today, and even more so.
The philosophy that accepts death must itself be considered dead,
its questions meaningless,
its consolations worn out.
