As for that I dont mind leaving the species man to his own ends after I'm free of the earth, as apposed to complete obiteration of the human race, which based on end abilities wont be a strech from possible, and with results of current tests probable.

Okay, good.
It's the people who strive to make every human something else entirely that I don't like.
Why do you hate me, Ein?


I just want to make it better...

You want to destroy everything I hold sacred.
For that you must die.

You hold sacred the idea of keeping humans fleshy and disease ridden, only living for a 122 years at most, while still needing to rely on other people and seperate machines to  keep all our ideas?


You monster!

I reckon that staying at peak physical fitness for about a thousand years before dying will be enough for me.

But then, it won't be enough for people born into a world where that's commonplace.

Ah, screw 'em, I want to see the world.

I just want a robo-respirator that can perform underwater.

I'd be fine as a brain in a vat. For all I know, I already am.

Brains generally do poorly in vats.

There is a beautiful kind of truth to that statement.

Depends on the vat. If this reality is my current vat, I'm doing all right in it, except for a small hangup on enjoying the vat-produced alcohol feeling.

Nobody would want a boring vat

It's impossible to sum up humanity in a cute anecdote or clever quote, because we are never the same, we are so diverse.
You come pretty close, right there.
Wouldn't Luke_Prowler's statement be a logical paradox, then?
Sorry, I was too busy trying to channel the great Kamina to make sure that my statements were logical. Although Kamina would probably just punch Hungry over the internet and ask him "Who the hell do you think I am".

Reality is not a vat, and the 'vat' is not your reality.

If you wake up from reality, then your reality will be the vat.

If you don't enjoy alcohol then you are on a good path in reality, unless you suddenly wake up and find yourself in a vat. Then you will want alcohol, lots of alcohol.

Man, you're gonna be so pissed when you find out that alcohol and vat juice don't mix.
