Good , Evil or Survival


Future technological advances could allow humanity to finally realize its ultimate potential for good or evil.

If we do ultimately aspire (or fall) to such an end, which will we willingly choose?

Will the animalistic drives of our past– predatory greed, aggression, and violence, automatic deference to the creed ‘might makes right’ (anarchy or ‘natural law’), and instinctive fear of change– in the end overpower our best ideals garnered from thousands of years of valiant struggle against same?

This site is about that choice. A choice we’ll make as we traverse a gauntlet of challenges which may well have destroyed all those civilizations which preceded us on this path: all those who came before us in this galaxy.

Odds are we’ll follow the same course to extinction they did. Unless we change.

Change in ways many believe today to be impossible, even impractical. And maybe immoral to boot.

For too stringent adherence to the status quo regarding tradition, nationalism, religion, et al, is what likely killed off those before us.

In this tug of war between our worst and best natures, it’ll often be tough to know who or what to believe, or what course of action will best serve our long term interests as a society.

And yet nothing could be more important to our survival.
