Call me a killjoy (although _not_ a Bill Joy !-) if you want, but I find
the listed web locations

somewhat lacking to say the least...

In fact, they appear to me as a yell for Anchluss of all transhumanism and
extropianism to a kind of occultism.

My bogometer gives a bright red alarm after reading the pages:
Qabbala, occultism, Enochial chess, third eye (aka ``Phantom Eye Hypothesis''
and ``Median Vision Theory''), dreams, etc. Heretical philosophy, indeed..

I hereby label those web pages as ``new age fluff''. >WHAM!<

Caveat lector.
