Jef's Web Files | Empathy, Energy, Efficiency, Extropy

oh, someday.

Nick Bostrom writes this allegory very nicely. I have a tendency to poeticise, or to abstract. I use details as they may, but here Nick finds happy medium between metaphor and useful realities. It's rare that a fable has footnotes, but I suppose that's just his fine education showing through.

I am reminded again of Bad Religion's "Sorrow" which I sing along with hope.
