I feel better now

... I was listening to a TED Talk by Martin Rees,
the Royal Astronomer for England. He is quite
smart and knows how to take the long term view
of earth and the human race

... the most important thing he said, was that the
human race will most probably make itself extinct,
by genetically engineering our offspring to be
superior to us

... the point will come where we naturally created
humans will be so inferior to our creations, that
we will go extinct

... then Homo Sapien 2.0 will run the planet

... they will live long, age very little, be
radiation resistant, get by on little food,
and all be gorgeous

... and whatever else you want to throw in
to the genetic mix, maybe the ability to drink
salty seawater

... Martin Rees also mentioned the incredible
time spans involved in the great cosmic dance,
and the utter truth of the dust to dust
nature of the material world

... from stardust we came, and to stardust we go

... seen over the eons of Time, our human lives
seem insignificant, but he said he still pays
his bills

... while on earth, do as the earthlings do
