John uttered the heartfelt

> Sasha, and now John Perry have left our ranks. I just don't want to see any more casualties. I believe in an afterlife, and have faith both men are there now. But still, I want to see each transhumanist I know attain their fondest dreams in this world.

I am not sure if I published this on the list; if so, I beg pardon for the repetition.

My two fondest dreams in this world are to help create a world that (A) I wouldn't mind coming back to, and a world that
(B) wouldn't mind bringing me back, in that order. Preferably, the same world in both cases, although emigration from B
to A could work... :)

_Actually being brought back_ is at least D on my list.

So I calculate risks and take them. If I croak, remember what I've said and take it into account if I don't get
suspended. It's a long shot, anyway. :)

Tycho Brahe's last words were allegedly
"Let me not seem to have lived in vain. Let me not seem to have lived in vain..."

Dum vivimus, vivamus.


My moronic mnemonic for smart behavior: "DICKS" == 
diplomacy, integrity, courage, kindness, skepticism.
