I, have read all of the threads on the "Dr. Stan Schatt" Ask me anything, OP. I hope I didn't miss this, Question, and response
The one thing that I see as, never addressed, is, Let's just say...That, there is such a thing as an alien presence that became technologically
advanced enough to arrive at our nice little "quiet" spot in the vast universe, regardless of, how they achieved this accomplishment.
A: Would they too have had to come face to face with their own version of, what we call the "Technological Singularity."
B: Could they have been able to survive this, without loosing much, or all of, their original biological element.
C: Is, the concept of "The Borg," truly what lies ahead, for any advanced society in the "End Game," of their technology evolution.
WE, seem to be caught up in the possibility of our own "Technological Singularity," and what it would mean to our Humanity and society, as we go
forward in our ultimate and, seemingly unavoidable goal of immortality. What we would give up along the way to achieving this? That, good or bad we
would not be the same after such an achievement and I, assume neither would they.
Would they have lost their version of "Humanity?" OR, maybe they are just wired differently, and have achieved some kind of Spiritual
Enlightenment, that thoughts such as individuality never played into their equations. If that is so, then what would they care of our need for
individual separation or the desire for the SELF to be important, other than just being a cog in a greater wheel of the whole.
Does self awareness require us, and indeed compel us, (and, I include the "Alien Races," in this control group,) at the core, to seek being separate
from the whole in a way as to contribute...yet, retain individuality as an important function of, "OUR" life.
In my opinion , the jury is still out, as to our ability to survive such a precipice as the "Technological Singularity" genetically and or in any
way biologically intact, that our ancestors, if confronted with us would recognize anything in common with them, other than a few scattered DNA
strands if we would have any at that point even left...
Consciousness existing digitally in a mechanical superstructure has no DNA signature. How would we procreate at such a juncture...would we even care
about such things...would they?
A lot of Questions...with no true answers, only hopes that we can survive this approaching and unavoidable moment in time when we must make hard
choices of how to proceed, in our own destiny, and how the possible "Alien Presence," has dealt with such a hurdle in their quest to advance
technologically, yet retain their...(insert your preferred Alien race name)...ity. "Human..ity, is at a crossroad.
Will, we be even "Alien" to our selves in 100 years?
I, Think So.
