Re: Why do we seek to transcend ourselves?

I'm still not buying the idea that the quest for eternal life is genetically
inspired. It really wouldn't matter what was driving the human
manifestation before transcendance - whether genes or some other mechanism -
a built-in termination date (death) is a very restrictive limitation on what
a human unit can accomplish. Pushing past a built-in termination date does
not seem to 'come from' genetics, except in the same way that everything we
are 'comes from' genetics.
