I think you will make it to Brigham Young University long before you make it there! Right Brent? lol

Unless we educate them properly they will continue in their old ways even as posthuman energy beings. I can just see them drunkenly over-embibing on plank energy as they play cosmic soccer with a passing comet. And I don't even want to imagine the damage to the solar system when they all riot over the game results! So, Max and the rest of ExI have a grave responsiblity to nip this sort of thing in the bud before it happens! : )

Max teaching the class of gifted young people was well worth the time and effort. An intimate gathering like that could actually bear fruit in ways a mass media interview might not. It comes down to touching one life at a time. Who knows what seeds have been planted and what may come of it later on.

best wishes,
