One of the disadvantages of arguing "but it could be dangerous" (which is what you seem to be arguing), is that every new invention is probably dangerous in some way or other. Cars, for example, are an invention that changed life around the world [just like the internet, or nuclear energy, and gunpowder] and have been misused, there have been thousands if not millions of accidents, and yet people view them in a very positive sense. It is true that richer people have cars with price tags over a million, and while cars are nothing in comparison to a human life, I believe that long-term-wise, eugenics is going to have a gigantic net positive effect on humanity. 


As a side note, have you read Dr. Seuss' book "The Sneetches and Other Stories"? 

Personally, I've enjoyed the novella. Not the best I've ever read, but I wanted to learn what comes next, which is a high bar these days. 

The beginning isn't as interesting as it could be. It's not as "hook-y" as most books I find in the library are. But by, say, Chapter 10, I was interested in reading it. 

(I can't believe I'm criticizing AI work. Wow.)

I'm surprised ChatGPT changed the plot of the story with the last DMF message. Is there anything I'm not seeing or did it actually delete the whole last part of the storyline from that one prompt?

What I can't figure out is why BLUE died. She's supposed to be immune to physical dangers? What did she die of?

Why does the fourth amendment make you feel LESS safe in your homes? Because of the possibility that criminals will not be found out because police can't search THEIR homes?

I'd like to hear your reasoning about "39. Obesity is contagious".
Is it the mental motivation of seeing someone obese to become obese yourself?

I can see what you mean by saying that 'identical to water but not water' is not true, but it's called the 'Twin' planet. Even twins have different fingerprints. Can't a substance act like water, look like water, and anything we do without looking at the molecular structure makes it seem identical to water, yet actually the creatures on that planet discovered a new molecule, that was just the same shape/form as a water molecule and have a different number of electrons?

I don't really understand atom structure, so is this scenario possible?

I have a solution for Harry.

Check the time, send any good occlumens with a time turner back for 6 hours, have them tell another good occlumens with a time turner to go back 6 hours, the time that it was when the first person went back in time, and have them ask yet another good occlumens... 

Do that however many times you need to

Have someone actually film whatever happened, then wait until it is right after the time that the first person went back in time, show everyone the film.

That way:

a) An occlumens will not accidentally give away their secrets
b) Time will not be changed, since they waited
c) You know it's real, since it's on film.

I'm re-reading this chapter for the sixth time

And I just realized

Is the "Black robes falling" italics part a non-Harry point of view of the end of chapter 114?

The word being Harry's spell on Voldemort, and "Black robes, falling" is actually part of the text in that chapter, also in italics, and in parentheses.
