I see what you mean, but I think that's just a miscommunication on my part. A misaligned point I'm trying to make. Even though you can inherit traits and instincts from your parents, you're still inheriting a trait from somewhere else. If it weren't for if your parents had that trait, you wouldn't either.

I always thought of the internet in the same way that Night City is described in Neuromancer:
 

"Night City [is] like a deranged experiment in social Darwinism, designed by a bored researcher who kept one thumb permanently on the fast-forward button."

 

The internet is just societal evolution set on fast-forward.

I think it's just a matter of some people (people like us) who find problem solving and coming up with ideas to be fun. Intellectually active individuals are so because they find it to be fun, while most others do not.

I think software developers should keep their jobs for a while. Their jobs involve a lot of 'people asking very specific requests' and I think the only reason it works is because both parties are humans and can understand each other well. I think as long as people don't know how to be specific and robotic with how they request things, software devs should be fine.

very good post. I had a scare while reading this, remembering a conversation I had with someone a few years ago, telling them that artists and painters should all be safe, as "I don't think computers will be able to paint". This stuff is scary (and fun somehow).

I haven't much to contribute other than letting you know you made a typographical error on the prediction that there will be 25,000 Russo-Ukranian deaths in 2002. Change 2002 to 2022.
