Before bankrupting big companies, we may take a look at ourselves (humanity?) in the situation of being immortal, healthy with unlimited creativity (in facto). Does it include sex? should we include 'having babies' (the ultimate happiness)? in which case humanity would proliferated even at a higher level than now, all of them enjoying sex and proliferation? Or should we include a 'mind-only' restriction and shrink away the sex-related part of life and eliminate the sex-related organs? Would it be worth the survival? similarly: if our mentality can produce 'everything', how about food to enjoy? are we eliminating as well our metabolism - not to get unlimitedly fat? thinking in wider domains of the suggested utopy brings up points beyond nixing the Pepsi or Coke stocks. I rather limit my unlimited capabilities and have a beer. John Mikes -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
