an interesting point.
just thought of this analogy:
any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
any sufficiently advanced (post)human is indistinguishable from a god.
the vast majority of us here, i imagine, would deny the existence of "magic" or "god" in
the sense that most people take them. (even i would, and i'm my own god and happen to
be quite fond of magick :) ), but how many of us would flat-out deny that we don't want
technology that is indistinguishable from magic?
both magic and god are creations of humanity, but both, imho, are things to be stroven
towards. (is stroven a word?)
cheshire morgan. we all create life, some of us with wombs,
some with smiles, some with patient hands.
we are all gods, if we choose to be.
