If the chance of a a genius like Al Einstein was one in a billion, will the planet have many more geniuses if the population crosses many more billions.

Have increasing brain sizes, decreasing fertility, mark a shift in homo sapiens.

Who wants to go out like a Neathendrel- not homo sapiens. Go out like a dinosaur- not us. Go out like a Martian. – thats just a movie.

Yeah right.

Here is song called Robot Song- for all the robots that lie in wait.

and here are the laws for robots.

The Laws are:

  1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  2. A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
but above all

:

0. A robot may not harm humanity, or, by inaction, allow humanity to come to harm.
The Fifth Law says:

A robot must know it is a robot.

The Ethics of a Spy

From http://hypernews.ngdc.noaa.gov

(dedicated to all the intelligence agencies in the world. All of them except those that kill their own countrymen)

The Ethics of a Spy

is never to question Why

Instead  pause and wait

Act now, before it is too late

We wait and watch

with the worst kind of homo sapiens

hoping our soul is not as corrupted

We are the watchers, the perpetual legal aliens

The ethics of a cop

May be to who dun it or stop

But the ethics of spy

Is to act now before people die

The Flotilla 13, The Alpha Team, The Seals, The Cobras

We are all brothers from the other mothers

We destroy our souls so we can save

Humanity from destroying itself.

Every man we killed

Haunts us in our dreams

Every woman we loved

was the one and truly love it seems

Those who live by the sword

Shall die by the sword too

But if that is any excuse for not doing

Then you must be a bigger foo

The ethics of a spy

is never to ask why

But to find and search

Protect the sheep from stumbling in the lurch

And when it is all over

The lucky ones are already dead

Old spies never die

We just wait for another op till the end.
