I really don't understand your position. If extinction for most and the permanent elimination of death for a few is not big enough to be called a singularity or a discontinuity in human affaires, then I don't what is. Death is the most constant framework in all of civilization, if that ends I don't know what will happen but I do know things will be different, very very different.

Perhaps the confusion is my fault, I haven't had this little free time in years and haven't been able to given your web page more that a quick glance. Anyway, it's nice to see you back on the Extropians list Lyle, you keep things stirred up and that's healthy.
