I'm think'in Tipler and Moravec would agree. Maybe also, with other
discoveries in physics, we will find matter and energy even easier to
mannipulate? Perhaps human descendents will be able to connect (if that is a
proper use of the word) with the Planck scale of the Universe? Mayhaps that
will provide a deeper understanding of nature and a metaphysical
trans-nature? Or we could all just go out for beers, either-or is fine by me.
