That wasn't clear? I swear that was in English... You're English, right?

Hmmm...

Do you know what Second Life is?

If not look it up and tell me what you think.

I think it's pretty cool.

Yes I am English. 100%.

Perhaps it would have been better if I had been more specific; I understood the genetic manipulation but not the oligarchic Pandora's Box part.

I looked up Second Life and it would be Teen Second Life for me. It looks great. But what about it? Wow! Looks good. Heh-heh.

Fun, huh!

You should sign up and mess around. The adult version is a little more crazy, but that is to be expected. It makes The Sims look like crap, but you have to have a pretty fast connection and the hardware to back it up.

Oligarchic Pandora's Box...

An oligarchy is the rule of society by the privileged few.

Pandora's Box id the Greek mythic source of all diseases, woes, and ills of the world.

Thus I asked if Genetic Manipulation could be a root source of spreading more evils on the world by causing only the privileged few to benefit from the technology and exploit it?

There are great ethical questions in much of the cutting edge technology of today. Nanotechnology is just as scary when examined closely.

I am of the opinion that we should expand technology and used it, but we have to keep a very close eye on those in power to see that they don't try to enslave the general population with powerful new discoveries.

There are always power hungry souls that are looking to rule and hold sway over the rest of us.

See, I can be serious. I'm not sure this is the thread for it; it being more an Intellectual Table subject, but you get the point.

Jimmy Out.

Why not start a thread about it in the intellectual table then? But ethical questions with many answers and alot of them deep, make my head hurt so unless a R.E. lesson or something a lil more to my taste (I won't bore you with my topic intrests), then I abhor such questions because often the answers I give compared to those of others make me appear shallow minded. Saying that however, if you did open a thread on such a topic then I would most likely join in.
