We Want To Be Robots

Current mood:diditditdiditdiditditdidit

robots. the idea of “human rights” is one of the avenues into our future. who has rights other than a human? animal rights activists are cultists. do otters have otter rights movements? no. we are thinking animals. we have rights. we want the thinking to leave our bodies, to come to life as precise as math, and real, yet OUTSIDE our bodies. that’s technology. what else could possibly have rights, OTHER than a human? Rights are a product of Thought. Otherwise Might governs, dopes. watch and see. we will see. lattice technology. the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics implies entropy. Law of Increasing Entropy implies that order and structure are highly improbable. intelligent life, in the scheme of the universe, is highly improbable. evolution created humans to speed up evolution through technology. huh? information is a symbolic representation of meaning. it has not matter. it affects matter. we’re finding the soul and we’re only going to find out it’s another process. DNA builds life on an atomic level. it is the radio receiver between information and matter. it’s a microcosmic building process, analogous to the way we construct buildings and jigsaw puzzles. certain pieces fit together to make this picture, building, or cell complete. psychoanalysis works under the same structure as jigsaw puzzles. hunt around your head and heart for a piece, a memory, a pattern of conduct based on an experience – and reorder that pattern. put that piece of you somewhere else where it fits best. sure, we change. the puzzle changes, but the lattice building process is the same. brick by brick. atom by atom. day by day.
