Until I get a *lot* more practice reading and appreciating poetry I won't
even attempt to express a view on your poetry, Shaun, except to say that I
welcome this an addition to the scientific, technological, and philosophical
analysis and presentation of extropian/transhumanist ideas.

I look forward to seeing more of your work on your web site. I really will
have to educate myself in the poetry arena. Natasha (Vita More) has been
writing transhumanist poetry for quite a while, and I feel I'm missing out
on being able to properly appreciate it. Natasha also has a extropian-art
filled web site, which I believe she is about to take to the next level. You
might contact her -- -- to see about getting links
between her site and yours, since I expect she will get a lot of traffic.
With Natasha pioneering in this area, and now a few other artistically
inclined extropians and other transhumanists, it'll be interesting to see
how things develop.
