Metavalent Stigmergy

How New Default Consensus Realities Instantiate

Glorious Times ... Or Not

Radical Life Extension, sans radical Quality of Life assurances, equals Radical Life Apprehension.

Barron’s Online:

"AMERICANS ARE LIVING LONGER, healthier lives than ever before and, if you believe everything you read, this is terrible news. With the cost of health care out of control, a Social Security system in crisis and an uncertain economic future, millions of worried, hard-working folks now fear they face an old age beset by… hard work and worry."

Fairly typical of contemporary western socio-economic philosophy, the article dismisses the traumas of the many, as offset by the realizations of the few.

This approach is a nearly guaranteed way to ensure Unsustainable Posthumanism.
