    Memes & The Selfish Gene (Dawkins) & Metal Gear Solid 2

    Do you think the AI is right? I kind of think that's the point - to evolve beyond natural selection. However, what happens if everyone belongs to a small group, who have their own world view? Does that really stop us from cooperating?

    Changing the world

    It was an interview that Wired did with Steve Jobs. There are a lot of ideas there, but I wanted to focus on the idea of changing the world. I think that if we hadn't kept building better tools, women would still be burned at the stake. It is the tools that makes us who we are.

    Changing the world

    What I've learned over the course of time is that it is a waste of time trying to help someone on the internet or change the world or whatever. You can only give people the tools, but you cannot force them to use those either.

    Same here. There is no moral dilemma if the person was ignorant enough not to care about his health when he didnt need a transplant. If you take the risk, you have to be willing to pay the price.
