Bruno,
merci pour le nom Jean Cocteau. J'ai voulu montrer que je semble
vivant.
I told my young bride of 61 years (originally economist, but follows all the
plaisantries I speculate on) about the assumptions you guys speculate on and
connect to assumptions of assumptions,  Torgny the zombie, Stephen Leibnitz'
Monads, you numbers, others Q-immortality/suicide and partial teleportation
at the level of highest science - and she asked -
(because she believes in her love that I am into all that, - understanding):

"What do you guys hope to achieve by all this speculation?"
I replied: it's getting late, let's go to sleep.

Well??? (I believe this is the most meaningful word in English)
