I would live to seed some stars. I would live to see the glad demise Of oil burning cars. I would live to float in silent space In the cities that we built. I would sip a comets water, And I would farm that comet's silt. The Earth would be a garden When her language we could speak. We could manage human numbers=85 "Less is more" would be less bleak. When my kidneys went the way of flesh, For all my kindness and respect, I'd pop in two brand new ones; I'd grown a clone to resurrect. I needed brand new kidneys, And my fellows used the rest. As flesh is more respected, then, Than present time -- you should confess! I'd live to see the asteroid belt Converted to new living space. We'd build it and not take it, =85T'would not add to our disgrace. We'd treat each other decently. We'd live for one another. The Earth itself a living thing. We would treat her like a mother. We would take her lesson to the stars. We are creatures with some art! We could act like we had common sense; We could act like we had simple smarts. Once we had our change of heart. The skies would open wide And we'd find it filled with new folk, We could ask for gentle chide. Lehmberg@snowhill.com So, they grew a frog without a head=85 Yes! I want it. Please continue the research. But at your peril -- create nothing with a consciousness! I want to grow my own replacement flesh -- I want to live forever. I will answer the ethical questions as I go along at some point in the next few thousand years -- and that quest will be driven by asking who has to pay so _I_ can play. I can cop to overpopulation, most can't or won't. The only real way to insure a quality human being is to bring the total down -- an individual thing. Living forever doesn't seem to add to that -- or does it? I'll live out in the asteroid belt, and live as far as I could see. Unfettered consciousness is a precious, precious thing, at the very least it should be. -- Explore the Alien View? http://www.fortunecity.com/roswell/arecibo/46/ "I cleave the heavens, and soar to the infinite.
