When will Russia get an idea for which one can live for and create for?
Personally, I’ve been hearing all my life about the Serious Philosophical Issues posed by life extension, and my attitude has always been that I’m willing to grapple with those issues for as many centuries as it takes.
There are two kinds of scientific progress: the methodical experimentation and categorization which gradually extend the boundaries of knowledge, and the revolutionary leap of genius which redefines and transcends those boundaries. They have evolved a society which knows no stress or angst. We Eldar who have failed, or the Humans, on the road to ruin in their turn? Because we sought answers to questions that an Ork wouldn’t even bother to ask!
Acknowledging our debt to the former, we yearn, nonetheless, for the latter. We see a culture that is strong and despise it as crude.
I just finished updating my Unz Review custom blogroll, along with an expanded set of “inspirational” quotes.
Here it is: *** ANATOLY KARLIN joined the Unz Review in January 2015 to blog about Russia, geopolitics, HBD/psychometrics, and futurism.
For a comprehensive overview of my past and present projects, as well as links to my current social media accounts, please visit my website
*** Blogroll This is not so much meant to be comprehensive as to illustrate the themes and individual thinkers whom I follow and am inspired by.
I do not bother including any MSM outlets, since I’m sure they can do just fine without my publicity.
Most of my “front page” news I get via /r/worldnews, /r/russia, and RCW.
Especially important, useful, and regularly updated resources are marked by an asterix, while blogs that appear to gone dormant appear at the end in italics.
And while I try to keep these things objective, if you include me in your blogroll that does vastly increase the chances that I’ll reciprocate.
