Maybe I am misreading you here, but you sound pretty depressed. If so, don't
just wait around hoping for things to get better, get help.  I have been
amazed at the results I have seen in people who simply get on the right
meds.  Or if meds aren't your thing, find somebody to talk to; get a
therapist.  It really can make a big difference.

Again Marc, if you were just being a little dramatic my apologies, but I
have had many clients who have been severely depressed and the worst thing
is to do nothing and just hope it gets better.

Heh.  Bruno, I continue to analyse my current (human) condition to try
to find a way out of this mess (I'm not a happy bloke).  Still
considering many possibilities.  Given the possibility that super-
intelligences do already (or will in the future) exist,  there's a
chance that a non-interference policy is being/will be pursued, but
that there's a way to get their attention - it could be a simple
matter of indicating that you are aware of the possibility and
requesting to 'sign' a 'social contract'.  Get in early now! ;)
