You spend much time worrying about highly advanced beings amongst us,
genetically compatible, but I find it nothing to be concerned about at all.
I find OUR species' behavior, quite well documented in all its
inglorious past, to be the chief worry.
I regard any advanced intelligence that's been with us for so very long,
as making us more resilient to crises and helping us with them, and
preparing us for a future that's not the laughable depiction shown in
The Jetson's cartoons.
Or even in the wastelands of Mad Max. Neither future scenario serves any
likely future scenario except for kids and fantasists.
But if we keep relying on machines, we'll need to find other energies to
build and operate them that don't suck enormous resources, and we need
to do more with recycling and renewal projects, like forest replacement.
Greta is just an icon of our times, a symbol of a teenage girl that had
a mission of cleaning up our polluted planet and has mightily persevered
despite angry, self-serving fossil fuel pushers and addicts.
We're all time travelers in our own eras. And if we live to a ripe old
age, say 80s or longer, there are enough changes experienced to make an
oldster believe they've had an almost unreal lifetime of extraordinary
And since we're all descended from simians, we'll need bananas. And
since we're more 'advanced' than apes and monkeys, we not only just eat
them, but use them for sexual purposes. Puree them, fry them with peanut
butter, make banana bread, dried chips, etc. Use them for pranks to make
people slip and fall.
Oh, how wonderful it is to be so much more intelligent than our ancestors.
