Social interactions and daily tasks involved in being a successful member of the human species can sometimes feel automated and depersonalizing. Sometimes others appear as malfunctioning machines, repeating the same maladaptive or just menial behaviors. . .and thats when sometimes philosophy is the only consolation, well that and laughing and maybe a mountain hike.

My Statement: I believe we humans live in an environment surrounded by biology and technology, yet a majority of us focus merely on short sighted effects of those things. Contemporary discoveries in science and advances in technology describe an existence in a much more mechanistic way than any of us could have imagined. Being able to incorporate this information into our conscious while maintaining respect for human creativity and emotion will be important for future human technological advancements and environmental management. I also believe life extension "200+ years" via bio-physiological modification is well within the grasp of my generation, and I'll do my best to participate in these efforts.

Little Carlos doodle.  It’s just something he says but I always found his “A scientist is self sufficient” and “A scientist is always fine” to be pretty lonely.

Ted Chu is a professor of economics and former chief economist for General Motors. Most recently, Dr. Chu is the author of Human Purpose and Transhuman Potential: A Cosmic Vision of Our Future Evolution. In my opinion Ted’s book is absolutely profound in the way it draws upon a dazzling variety of philosophical and scientific resources in order to place humanity within a cosmic evolutionary perspective. In that sense I will go as far as claiming that it is a one-of-a-kind book within my transhumanist library and, while it is definitely not an easy or quick read, I enjoyed it very much.

someone is going to say “i have to go to the moon” in a bored, defeated tone one day

Played 16 times

"And I go too high, and you go too cold
Then we both fall apart
Then you bring your mind, to rest against mine
But the mind has no say on affairs of the heart”

Soo, I bought this album because of this song . Hmm I’m not really an Ok Go fan anyhow but this song, the sound, gets me. I wish the rest of the album had the same kind of shadowed new wave sound.

Dacryphilia-Getting off by watching someone cry, which is a common paraphilia in sadists or sadomasochists.

My brother once showed me a piece of quartz that contained, he said, some trapped water older than all the seas in our world. He held it up to my ear. ‘Listen,’ he said, ‘life and no escape.’
