Ask A Genius 200 – Overpopulation, Religion, Government (Part 4)
Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner
June 16, 2017
[Beginning of recorded material]
Rick Rosner: One is the freedom. One part of that is the control over our drives. It is to a huge extent getting control over how our sexual behaviour. So, we’re talking about coercive control. I wasn’t even talking about that. I wasn’t talking about it as we suss out become or learn more about how consciousness works and how to determine the types of consciousness we want to have.
That may me control over sex because sex is one of the great drivers of our conscious and unconscious existences.
We’ll be, in the future, able to decide if we really want to be driven by butts and tits. For an increasing percentage of the population over the next few centuries, that will come to be seen an antiquated and ridiculous.
There are some science fiction visions of the future that present a race of humans who are kind of desexualized and coldly clinically intellectual.
Sometimes, you see the humans of the future as being little spindly bodies with big throbbing brains
Their heads are three times the size of our own now and their bodies are shrunken by half. That is ridiculous.
But I can see a gradual deemphasizing of sex, but not a deemphasizing of foolishness.
That we all become coldly and clinically rational and smarter, but our entertainments. Our fun will become more developed, complicated, and ridiculous along with our abilities.
Sex will be just one of many the ways that we entertain ourselves.
Scott Douglas Jacobsen: That does tie back in. That broadening of the landscape of entertaining ourselves does tie back into this differentiation, into the splinterings of sexual pairings or non-pairings and the variety o stimulation that come from that, or arise out of that.
