How could anyone prefer to live a truth that basically says you're a robot? Are you even really living at all at that point? What if this whole thing becomes like the origin of the universe, where there's theories/ findings and theories/findings and however much closer we get we can never quite put our finger on it? As long as there's any gap at all I'm satisfied that it's enough for my identity to slip through. Besides there's truth and then there's truth. You can say all the ingredients of a Mars Bar but overall it's still a Mars Bar.Originally Posted by Scott Bakker
I do see there being some wrinkles with the punitive system and all that if all this research produces undeniable final results and honestly I don't know how to approach that problem.
Also, if my attitude of my bio-switches and whatnot are still me don't work then how is anyone supposed to realistically maintain responsibility about things? I thought the whole point of modern forward thinking was to make more of ourselves, if I have to decieve myself to keep from being less how can you tell me that's wrong?
