It only gives you "WE" if people want to participate.  The problem facing
the world right now (maybe) is lots of writers/directors and not so many
readers/viewers.  How does one generate interest in dust science?  How does
one generate interest in end points for the evolution of technological
civilizations?   How does one generate interest in charting the best path
from where we are now to where we might like to be?

Most people (99.999+%?) of humanity does not wake up every morning going how
do I chart (or even navigate) the best path to becoming a post/trans-human.

Ah, there's the rub.
