The human race should work to achieve a phased extinction.

  • I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware. Nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself. We are creatures that should not exist by natural law. We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, this accretion of sensory experience and feelings, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody's nobody. I think the honorable thing for our species to do is to deny our programming. Stop reproducing. Walk hand in hand into extinction. One last midnight, brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal.

  • You're stupid. Besides, if we cease to reproduce, all that we have done will not be remembered.

  • how could something exists if it isnt natural

  • The deal to progress, to complexify, to strive for our greatest potential? Hell no, i'm not ending this deal. Not now, not ever. My matter will carry on as a crucial part to the evolution of the universe.

  • What kind of stupidity would this be? Trying to wipe out humans ?

  • Humans are the greatest species ever to walk the earth. Not only have we become the first species to become self-aware (e.g. realizing our existence as individuals) but we have become the only species that can adapt to and change our environment.

  • It seems a bit ridiculous to do this how are new and better ideas are supposed to be produced if you want no one to reproduce and how are ideas going to be spread around the world if we decide to stop reproduction

  • Humans are awesome, and you should watch your Tang consumption. (It's an NGE joke. Saved you the space of a comment.)

  • What did I just read?

  • You again? Rust_Cohle, give up on this. I read in the comments and am sorry about your daughter, but you have to accept it as the sad thing it is.

  • @OP Dude, put down the LSD

  • Whilst life on Earth may be happier without us in the short term certainly life would go on evolving and the next mad monkey to get smart would do the same as us. Anyhow are you not curious to see what we come up with next..

@o0jeannie0o I think most people don't get what you're saying, but i do. Naturalism.

I think about my daughter now, and what she was spared. Sometimes I feel grateful. The doctor said she didn’t feel a thing; went straight into coma. Then, somewhere in that blackness, she slipped off into another deeper kind. Isn’t that a beautiful way to go out, painlessly as a happy child? Trouble with dying later is you’ve already grown up. The damage is done, it’s too late.

You are evil.

@Rust_Cohle With that attitude it is.

The world needs bad man, we keep the other bad man at the door.

Now you're just not making sense.

I know who I am. And after all these years, there’s a victory in that.

I hear what you are saying about the tragedy of our disconnect from a seemingly synchronized world, but destroying developed consciousness nullifies any probability that we can answer WHY matter has appeared among such a questionably infinite universe of dark matter.

That's not a happy way of death! It's better if you can actually experience what is out in the world and live a long life and learn new things
