I think he is a really cool guy actually, and one of the first I read in the field from the contemporary authors. I do think he fostered a lot of unhealthy ideas, and used his status as an expert to build a small cult in some senses, hehe.

That tends the happen in this field naturally to some extent though too.

I guess it also depends on how hard it is to colonize and exploit space on a galactic scale.

If it turns out that is very easy for us, like folks like Kurzweil seem to think, it probably indicates our galaxy is completely empty of any other civilizations, or someone would have already converted the entire galaxy to computing substrata or whatever use they decided a billion years back. The harder we find interstellar exploitation of resources within a 1000 years from now, the more likely there are to be other civs lol.

Yeah I remember stuff like this. The Pulse was way wackier back then, lol. I think part of it may have been the early internet, and part of it was that this was before the split with Robert Bruce. A lot of the wackiness left with him, lol.
15 years, wow.  cool

I'm not his fan either but poor Mr Bruce. Let's blame him for everything now which we don't like (is he Russian?) since he's not on here to defend himself. Easy game.
 wink

I honestly think they have that wrong. I can't explain it but I feel the science just is not quite right on this subject. Kind of the way I felt when they first started putting so much faith in carbon dating.

The pendulum swayed past equilibrium. Potential energy goes up. Kinetic energy goes down.

Oh hell, really you guys used to have discussions like this?

I love how these old topics are backwards and messed up. I got to read a lot of responses before I finally got to read the actual original post, haha.

Am I the only one who thought the joke and stereotyping was on white people?
Oh my god but I've met many people just like this, not all of them white either, LOL!

Okay Xanth you can shoot me now for dragging this one back up. (smiling sweetly) smiley
