+++ For the purposes of clarifying the points under discussion between us, simply take these term in their literal meanings.
With additional aspects refinements and additional clarifications will be necessary.
But let's not sway away here in endless chains of associations but rather stay focussed.
Also: within the limits the terms as we used them so far, one can already clearly come to striking an intermediate balance with reagrad to your original questions and my answers. So far, at least.
: Honestly, I think the realists version of "evolution" is that man pollutes his surroundings so damn much that he mutates into something else. We're going to end up dying young of asthma, infectious diseases, & cancers until only a few of us, shaped like jelly fish, survive like cockroaches after a nuclear holocaust. Honestly, that's what I'm predicting. No super man there in the future, unless you're thinking about a superman jelly fish mutant person/thing.
### THERE IS NO GOOD - UNTIL YOU DO'T !
: I said there's a relative form of "free will" that I believe in, which would include the ability to choose to be an activist or not. But that's the problem - limited choices... limited by ideas.
