Amen, but in moderation. And don't forget about exploring alternate states
of consciousness, that is valuable for the Singularity too. Lust I'm less
keen about. I don't believe in rational love, love wastes too much time and
is too much like a valueless drug. When being on the net incites more
emotion than "real life", would you spend all your time on it, anyone?
