Should humans be allowed to colonize space and join the rest of the advanced civilizations that are currently monitoring us?
The new mass effect isn't out yet man, chill.
That's a pessimistic viewpoint.
We'll be alone during every moment that we cling to war and we'll make contact as soon as we rid ourselves of the habit forever. There's no future or past to factor in; this karma is constantly in effect.
>he doesn't understand the raw magical power of the meme
Yes of course memes are powerful; all religions are memes after all. I use the term meme in context of the original coinage by Dawson and not the retard vernacular maymay version.
Of course I meant Dawkins. My mind is polluted by fucking maymays.
You have some understanding, but not knowledge. Memetic engineering could not possibly be used for malevolent purposes for very long, certainly not on the level you are suggesting, because such memes would easily mutate into counter-memes and end up making the problem much worse for the would-be evil-doer. It would be like introducing a virus vaccine.
Instead, I would like to offer that you are infested with several parasitic memeplexes, as evidenced by your conclusions.
The nature of reality is far beyond that of ayylmaos zipping around in flying saucers. In fact the true nature of consciousness is almost unbelievable to the extent that even trying to discuss it will cause some serious butthurt to the listeners. It is something that must be discovered for oneself and considering the plight of humanity, that will take a while.
>I don't see that happening for a long time.
I don't see that happening ever then, or atleast several million years.
What you are talking about is a evolutionary change in our DNA to stop being violent and selfish.
>As it stands, we’re currently working toward launching in 2017, and today’s announcement allows our astronauts to begin training for these flights starting now.
Pshhhh what could possibly go wrong?
