Thanks! I like both versions; being a naturally indecisive type I will
whenever possible take both possibilities of a choice (except for
versions of me who remake themselves as more decisive, of course).

We had an open house here in Solna, where a sizeable fraction of the
local transhumanists passed by. In the living room Hayek, Aristotele,
microprocessors and roleplaying games were debated. In the kitchen the
geometric underpinnings of music were discussed. On the balcony movie
criticism took place... The usual result when you get enough
transhumanists in one place.
