ROUGH NOTES: Of gods and tech: a brief, introductory exploration of some potential origins and ends of mankind's drive to express

desire and drive to create
but get bogged down in the details....distracted.
desire not simply to create, but to express.
And not just things, but life.

Unfortunately, life (and things) are rather details oriented and somewhat chaotic.

We want to be able to slay the dragon in the waters
to bind the behemoth
to put a bit in leviathan's mouth.

And we want to do it by expressing ourselves, that is, by command, by pure manifestation of will.

We want, in short, to be gods.  Being "regular humans" is such hard work.

Hi! Feel free to comment. However, I was getting posts from different Anonymous people, and it's difficult to know who is who so I can keep the conversation straight in my head. So I'm requesting that you please bear with my weakness, and identify yourself. Even if you want to use a different name than your real name -- that's fine. But give yourself a handle for me, please. :) Thanks...
