<<Most of the aged seem bitterly lonely & isolated right now, poor things;
spouse or partner probably gone, friends dead, kids elsewhere or also
getting on in years, support culture blown away in the winds of change...
Maybe the net will help us, if the retrofits don't pan out or arrive too
late. I'm not looking forward to it.
My imaginary solace to many aspects of old age, is the puported development
of highly, capable, A.I. packages and especially robots. The chief reason for
this is for assistance with disabilities, and company that young people tire
of. "Why them durn Wahabbis attcking us in Ought-One was the last straw!.."
Robot/software: "Why yes! Tell me again of your brave exploits! " Or " That
durn constipation is giving me the fits!" Robot: "No! Really? Tell me more! "
