(PG-13: Language) There were human species before us, each of which is now extinct. Evolution led to us homo sapiens, who have managed to hang on largely because of our ability to communicate. exurb1a provides his cynical take on the state of the human race.
(PG-13: Language) Exurb1a points out that most of the things we do, think and feel – from crucial activities like breathing, to walking and even our interests and fears – are subconscious or done automatically. But he argues that being self-aware is enough of a victory.
(PG-13: Language) The Awesomer’s writing team has long since said farewell to their twenties, but we definitely could have used some of the words from exurb1a’s reference guide, which includes terms which could come in handy to describe the trauma of that youthful decade.
(PG-13: Language) “Sometimes, only sometimes. All the time would be too much. Never would be too little.” Near the end of the universe, a bear and a goose – both nigh-omnipotent – ponder what a better universe would be like, and decide to act on their ideas.
(PG-13: Language) exurb1a performs a grand thought experiment in order to argue that said situation should remain theoretical. He considers the ethical, medical, technological, social and existential consequences if we were able to create digital copies of ourselves.
