Friends make life good. They provide the scaffolding that makes it not just bearable but fun. They give us a sense of meaning and purpose and are a source of security, self esteem and happiness. Almost nothing predicts how happy you will be as how connected you feel and a lack of social connection is associated with a number of diseases and a shorter life.
But maybe you have scrolled through your phone, unsure who to call to go to a movie with, to celebrate with or ask for comfor...

    Hey Philipp! I have a doubt on what you wrote on page 113, chapter 12. You mentioned that if the person is reasonably young reading the book, then by the age they retire, there will be treatments to regenerate the Thymus. Now how old does the volunteer need to be for them to have Thymus treatments available when they get old?

    They cause it with geoengineering, then propose the solution is geoengineering. Typical "problem, reaction, solution". All those nano-aluminium laden con-chemtrails huh... persistent ice crystals persisting more than ever before in the apparent age of global warming. Weird huh lol, and very paradoxical. It'd be nice if they'd stop spraying us with aluminium, barium, strontium, and all the other poisons, but maniacs don't roll like that. Narcissists just deny and gaslight continually, regardless of how many people call out their abuses.

    I don't think this is what they had in mind when they contacted kurzgesat but it was interesting to watch. plus I don't think we need the parts of the brain that control organic processes anymore since our new synthetic organs probably do all that themselves. it sounds like we just have to scan the parts about muscle memory, memory and skills

  • Karl Stone

    Yes, we can solve the climate and ecological crisis. The reason the climate and ecological crisis seems so intractable is the assumption that sustainability requires economic sacrifice. The 'Limits to Growth' assumption is ubiquitous; it underlies all policy approaches - but is in fact false. In fact, resources are a function of the energy available to develop them. The way to solve this problem therefore is to outgrow it; to transcend the impending bottleneck through application of the technology to harness vast quantities of clean energy, and spend that energy to multiply resources. There's limitless heat energy available from the molten interior of the earth; easily converted into base load electricity and clean burning hydrogen fuel. Used to meet all our energy needs carbon free, plus desalinate, irrigate, recycle all waste and extract carbon from the air - magma-thermal energy can secure the future without turning the world upside down!
