  • Aug 2 2012: GO BACK TO STONE AGE!!!! LIFE!!!!!!
    • Aug 5 2012: I am typing into a marvel of technology, connected to the entire globe, and wondering if perhaps my descendants will indeed find happiness in a second stone age. I think we should try to avoid that, if only because of the misery of illness that our technology can prevent and ameliorate.
      • Aug 5 2012: I agree, how many of us has personal experience with average day to day life in the stone age? I'm willing to bet is wasn't a walk in the park. Hungry animals eating your family wouldn't make for a fun afternoon. Watching your clan starve off due to 1 year of drought, no thanks. We take so much for granted as far as technology is concerned. Now is all we have, we need to start cherishing it and helping others do the same.

        Happiness is only found in the subjective reality, objective reality is devoid of emotion.
