To begin with we're not what you'd call human. Over the
past one thousand years a kind of consciousness formed layer by
layer in the crucible of Douro valley. It's not unlike the way
life started in the oceans four billion years ago. The Douro river
was our primordial soup, a base of evolution --
We are formless. We are the very discipline and morality that
portuguese people invoke so often. How can anyone hope to eliminate us?
As long as this nation exists, so will we.
The mapping of the human genome was completed early this century.
As a result, the evolutionary log of the human race lay open to
us.But there are things not covered by genetic information.
Human memories, ideas. Culture. History.
Is it something that should not be passed on? Should that
information be left at the mercy of nature?We've always kept records of our lives. Through words, pictures,
symbols... from tablets to books...But not all the information was inherited by later generations. A
small percentage of the whole was selected and processed, then
passed on. Not unlike genes, really.But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is
accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never
fading, always accessible.All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at
an alarming rate.It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of

Lately i've been on /int/ for far too long and i want to stop but i can't
By the way, this is not even funny, the post you just made, i've seen this post
Exactly yesterday and i still can't find it funny
Retarded posts like this makes me want to kill myself
Too late for me i guess, im already here
Oh by the way i saged this, so yeah.
The digital society furthers human flaws and selectively rewards
the development of convenient half-truths. Just look at the
strange juxtapositions of morality around you.
Billions spent on new weapons in order to humanely murder other
Rights of criminals are given more respect than the privacy of
Although there are people suffering in poverty, huge donations
are made to protect endangered species. Everyone grows up being
told the same thing.
"Be nice to other people."
"But beat out the competition!"
"You're special." "Believe in yourself and you will succeed."
But it's obvious from the start that only a few can succeed...
You exercise your right to "freedom" and this is the result. All
rhetoric to avoid conflict and protect each other from hurt. The
untested truths spun by different interests continue to churn and
accumulate in the sandbox of political correctness and value
Everyone withdraws into their own small gated community, afraid
of a larger forum. They stay inside their little ponds, leaking
whatever "truth" suits them into the growing cesspool of society
The different cardinal truths neither clash nor mesh. No one is
invalidated, but nobody is right.
Not even natural selection can take place here. The world is
being engulfed in "truth."
And this is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, but a
