I sure hope not. Emotions are fun. Even the negative ones, I wouldnt
want to give up, but I dont think we would need to. Humans have
greater intelligence than bugs, and also more emotion. By extrapolation,
superhuman intelligence begets superhuman emotion. Those of you
who have been madly in love will find this easy to understand: wouldnt it
be cool to take *that* emotion and pump it up several orders of
magnitude? {8-] spike
