BRIGHT LINES: Many people are noticing that old and bright lines of morality are dissolving. They fear that needed new ones are not appearing. Experience and reason are showing skills for cloning life, and such skills will likely soon lead to capacities for manufacturing DNA to specifications, thereafter to be leveraged by merging such DNA with super applications, merging human brains, artificial brains, and command centers. The line between organic life and inorganic awareness of self, between individuals and webs, particles and fields, will soon be blurred. Energy will be harvested by photosynthetic processes, direct from the Sun. No individual, absent assistance from incredibly powerful applications, can hope to compete against agglomerations of technological engineering. Competition will be mainly against group-based organizations, rather than against other organisms. Meta-markets will develop for manipulating, buying, and selling access to sub-markets. The invisible hand of providence will be replaced by the artificial hand of the mega-international-corporation, whose members will be valued more as skilled parts than as human beings. Individuals will be monitored and regulated, 24/7, to ensure no one breaks down or becomes a threat to the emerging Borgdom. As we accelerate into this futuristic dimension, old bright lines will flicker out. If human freedom, dignity, and decency are at all to be preserved, if humanity is not to split between classes of Morloch and Eloi, people of insight must soon inspire new checks, balances, and bright lines. The notion that life at conception is sacred will need to be replaced by a new system of bright lines that will inculcate respect for valued perspectives of purposeful consciousness. Accompanying that replacement, there will be many deceiving lobbyists, politicians, lawmakers, and executives. The prime moral command will remain: Be empathetic! Empathy, however, is not entirely restricted to love. Its bright light of the future, a living Field, is hurtling at us, as we stand dazed. The measurable universe is nothing but a web for the signification and communication of an immeasurable, reconciling, feedback appreciating, living field of perspectives of consciousness. It's bright lines and acculturated rules are the fluxing traffic control signals for the avatars with which we identify.
