  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    Well, after giving the idea some thought, I guess I have an answer for OGH: Turn the Galactic Federation down, but not for the reasons you think. 1) Our present society simply cannot be trusted with an End It All...
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    "If the latter is correct, the only thing we have of value is our unique human cultures. A short lived commodity because after the any deal is made we will have massive culture loss as we acculturate to the culture(s)...
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    Above, I broke OGH's questions down into a slightly different list of questions. On that list, I've gotten to these two: 3) Would such a telepathically transparent society necessarily constitute a group mind? (My answer to this question is “no.”)...

    I think I answered this in my own post, which is just above yours :p :D...
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    Why is the galactic federation doing this? This may need to be broken down a bit. What the federation fears is that if enough entities are granted access to the Super-Science, the risk of one entity (regardless of whether...
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    My response to OGH's question is going to be a bit long. I think I'll recycle it as a blog post on my own blog (if I ever actuall launch it...), assuming OGH doesn't mind. I'm not sure what...
