No, thank you.
My reaction to Anton's posting has more to do with my reasons for
being on this list rather than the fact that he owns a gun. I'm here
to work with others to find the new ways in which humans will move
beyond their present state. I'm looking for the new stories that
will be told, and the new technologies that will take us there.

If anyone can explain to me how discussion of instruments designed
solely for the killing and maiming of other humans relates to the
purpose of breaking out of entropy and moving human evolution along,
I will listen.

Until then, I find it sickening, and it frightens me in ways I can't
explain insofar as our future as posthumans. I mean, what are we
working towards, anyway?
