Human Mental Augmentation: Archive Entry From Brad DeLong's Webjournal: "You can lead a very meaningful life at the post-industrial stage as you find a mate, take pride in discovering, learning, and communicating how the economy works so that we can collectively make better social decisions, and try hard to equip your young with the math, literacy, and social skills they will need so that their options will be bright ones. You can lead a very meaningful life at the post-singularity stage as you find a mate, take pride in demonstrating using ordered sequences of linearised tree-level ideoplast arrays to express higher-order metaphor functors that show the existence of nontrivial toposophic hierarchies in pre-S1 societies, and strive to ensure that your 37% augmented descendants have sufficient semantic instantiation at their transcoding."
Are Economists and Physicists the same people? DeLong must be a hard science fiction guy.
toposophic: http://www.orionsarm.com/sophontology/toposophy.html (reading this without context is fun)
PS. DeLong took the post-humanist text from a spoof email sent to him last year.
