Change The Blueprint [Jul. 21st, 2005|10:01 am]
Tony Grist
The human body is in urgent need of a re-design.

I mean, basically, it's the same monkey body we had when we first traipsed out of the woods and onto the savannahs.

It's built to last about 25 years. After which time it starts going wrong. We've quadrupled our life expectancy, but without upgrading the vehicle. And so we spend three quarters of our life-span in a body that's performing well below its best. How stupid is that?

We accept that an athlete is past it by thirty. How abject!

And it's so fragile. Why settle for skin and bone when you could have titanium?

I don't see how we can be anything else but simplistic- we're simple beings, after all.

Someone said he reckoned that the universe was not only stranger than we think, but stranger than we CAN think.

Exactly. I like that.

I've read too many books. I expect--demand--an ending which will reveal everything.

You know those star-fields showing multiple galaxies against a black background? When I look at them I think of the corpuscles in our veins, and how if we were small enough our location would seem vast and we could begin to think we were in a universe of corpuscle galaxies.

Maybe we're in a vast body known as God.
