Being human can be pretty wonderful, but it doesn't have to be. In fact, in most cases, it's anything but wonderful. It's like that old adage "Youth is wasted on the young", but then that's the sort of balance that Reality strikes across the board. Good and bad, and in shifting percentages. In the book "AutoGenesism: A Rational Theory of Everything" we're mostly dealing with the basic structure of Reality as a whole, and how Reality can be determined by examining what's right there in front of us. There was not much room left to really dig into the unique experience of being human. But, that doesn't mean that the study of Auto-G hasn't revealed a lot about what's true and untrue, possible and impossible about the factual nature of the human being. What's definitely true is that even in the afterlife, we'll be lucky if we ever get more than a pinhole glimpse of exactly what we are as the epitome of natural progressive development. Here are some extended thoughts on the subject that didn't make it into the book.
