Not Me, I'm Australopithecus Afarensis

 

I'm a small bipedal ape from an ancient society of geniuses that fore-saw the rise of hairless apes. One day, my descendants will be human, but for now I'm sorta creepy looking and only a few feet high. I do have feelings and emotive eyes...but I sure am ugly, like a child dipped in tar and animal fur, oh, and I cannot vocalise so I exist mostly here at my computer, hacking profiles to leave messages like this. Anyway, I've got to get back to the grasslands of Asia or Africa or wherever I'm from, I have a meeting with another of my descendents, a dear friend named Neanderthal (He doesn’t like Homo sapiens, something about your people out-competing his in Europe a long time ago)

But then what if, after we reach utopia status... someone sets free all those ancient evils?

I hope the second one wins, I look forward to a virtually unrestricted existence (Bring on the singularity!) <br />
But going back in time would be an interesting exercise, and it would give us back all the resources we've already used here and if we could do it endlessly we would never have to see the end of the universe… too bad backwards time travel is pretty much impossible (Except if you happen across two super-strings close enough to perform a neat trick).

We rip a hole in the fabric of space and time, and then we grab and older version of the earth (I'm thinking circa 15,000 BC) and move everyone over there. <br />
<br />
Or... Everyone downloads themselves into a virtual environment where we can live as luxuriously as we wish (And also we would be immortal, as we could keep making back-up and copies of ourselves.)

I like everything you say, smebro; It is always a pleasure for my mind.
