It's like Robert, out on the information highway, presenting us with an
example of art,
he chooses the most archaic and cliche example known to man.. oh my god - I
am an Extropian.. what is ... art? ... the Mona Lisa, that be art ... but
then he realizes that art is not just painting.. it be performance, it be
science, it be reconstructing our DNA, it be idea ventures, software and
animation, it be cybergenics, it be lighting, architecture, dreamscaping..
VR... nano...
then he it's send... trying to hit unsend... but
OOOOPS too late
