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.
