Re: Encouraging a Positive Transcension

The Beckenstein bound -- if true, I guess it is -- more
or less finishes two popular assumptions.

First, that the growth is an eternal state, and the
only kosher future.

The second is the imploding civilizations, after they
reach their Singularity conjecture.

It more looks like to me, that in fact it is a finite
world, in which we will have to live a sustainable way
of life.

The current most widely accepted paradigm among
Transhumanists of starting into infinity, is quite
probably wrong.

Fortunately, the finite amount of goodies we can
expect, is probably larger, than we can imagine under
the popular "infinite possibilities" paradigm.

And it is a lot of room for Metaqualia's views also.
Just get there and become a Conservative then! -- it's
quite likely a single reasonable scenario.
