life

Posted by Jeremy Zilar | Tue Aug 17th 2004 9:55 a.m.

A friend just sent me this HAWKING quote,

"I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says
something about human nature that the only form of life we have created
so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.--
Stephen Hawking"

I wanted to see what others had to say about the whole thing.

I was surprised. I really disagree with the destructive aspect.... i
dont know that viruses are created with intent to destroy. They are an
actual act of creation. I think they maybe be intended for subversion,
but not destruction. if something gets destroyed, it should be a poor
reflection on the maker of the system itself for leaving holes and
windows - or, just plainly not taking care or having a respect for the
end user of the system. The system needs to be designed to include the
most distent end user..... and if it is not, that end user will
eventually break the system with the weight of its mind.

I think it is part of our nature to subvert systems, to what extent we
take that subversion and the way we go about administering our sense of
change is a whole other issue.

* I cant help but to look at what i just said,.. and see it in a global
context,.. and question the ramifications of such a point of view. :)

hmmm I will have more to say on this after i devise a way too cook some
eggs.
