Are you proposing the indefinite pursuit of the goals of surviving and
producing copies with minor modifications? That that is the *best* use for
the matter and energy at our disposal? Extending this thought would suggest
that we should run around the galaxy hauling back hydrogen to keep this
little game running relatively indefinitely. We want to bring the "far
side" party *here* so everyone can see how cool our historic preservation
efforts will have been.
Ah, yes, what a noble thought, let us increase the aggregate amount of
stupidity residing on this tiny speck of a planet in a tiny corner of space
If I were God, I'd want to shoot myself.
