From: "Phil Osborn" <email@example.com>
>So, once again, I put forth the idea of an explicit social contract, backed
by escrow, insurance, and arbitration.
"There you sit with your escrow, insurance, and arbitration. Here we stand
with our high-tech weapons of mass destruction. We shall see who wins."
Useless hypotheses, etc.:
consciousness, phlogiston, philosophy, vitalism, mind, free will, qualia,
analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, Cyc, Eliza, and ego.
Everything that can happen has already happened, not just once,
but an infinite number of times, and will continue to do so forever.
(Everything that can happen = more than anyone can imagine.)
We won't move into a better future until we debunk religiosity, the most
regressive force now operating in society.
