Whatever the patterns and forms that happen to have nurtured our measurable physicality, they are temporal, not eternal. The asteroid that has our name on its kill list is out there. Change, that is, entropic dissipation of Substance in trade for cumulation of Information, is relentless. Of interest for the human form is: How long can (or should) the environmental balance or temporal homeostasis that sustains it be preserved? To what evolving forms and purposes should we feel ourselves to be guided? In what way may G_d's purpose be either to replace or reduce us? To phase us towards the existentiality of bacteria, ant piles, borgdom, or ... maximization of intellect that will be able to abide in civilized sociobility, freedom, dignity, and economy, without needing, reactively or premptively, to destroy itself?
To what extent may various kinds and spaces of temporal homeostasis be desirable or possible? Why does the default condition of humanity seem generally to decline towards the reduction of middle class opportunities for escape from lower to upper classes and towards the increase of oligarchic power, deceit and arbitrariness? What system of politics, economics, and republicanism may best preserve communications among a middle class of decent, competent, and free thinkers, who tend to want neither to abuse, nor to be abused by, their fellows? What adjustments may be needed to preserve middle class republicanism, or will the present system suffice to right itself? Must the trend towards central consolidation of power and wealth be inexorable?
