Quote Left REGARDING THE ELECTION OF PRESIDENT TRUMP: Have faith that the founding fathers created a government of checks and balances to make sure no one could threaten the nation. Our forefathers also enshrined our fundamental rights in a Bill of Rights to ensure every minority and individual would be safe from abuse by powers of the government. Finally, please recall the little good done by our politicians, and that reason exists to believe Trump can be better. Quote Right

Quote Left If I had a simulation computer program with AI capable of reproducing our universe in all detail, then I would make a program to simulate Earth societies on the premise of empathy. If society becomes successfully adequate at empathy there would be no war, no famine, no mean parents, and no meanness to each other. Would some people choose to explore cruelty, even if only to explore empathy. Or worse, because they like it and cruelty is part of the human condition. That is a simulation I want. Quote Right

It takes a long time to get there, and if you can't contribute something original there is always the piano as a profession. Quote Right
