I almost become suicidally bored hearing this extremely work myth. I think
there are many possibilities other than becoming terminally jaded. I dealt
with this old crestnut (the issue not Stewart!) at the Alcor Life Extension
Technology Conference last year. As part of the panel discussion following
Natasha's presentation I spoke on "The Zardoz Myth". I have about 1,650
words of notes and excerpts from my book-in-progress. I won't post them
here, but if anyone wants to see them, let me know and I'll email them.
