    have you seen any of the gits: arise episodes? i was concerned beforehand, but i saw 1 and 2 and thought they were excellent, quite in keeping with the rest of the material in terms of themes, style, characterization, etc.

    Do it ... it's beautifully animated! One pass is not enough with GITS.

    LOL I wanted the original but someone snagged it before I had a chance to use it as my avi, so I gender-fied it.

    Thats why I said "like a city that takes in resources and throws out waste."
    And yeah, practically a cell is adapted only to life in us, to our collective support infrastructure, will not survive elsewhere (although it has the opportunity to be shortsighted and cancerous )

    What a cell most seems like to me... is a city. A city with all of the systems decently automated and self-contained - where it just needs to take in some resources and throw out some waste, but aside from that... it has all the factories it needs for making different things, it has all the processes (government) fully standardized... and it can even expand its influence (by replicating).

    I think humans often don't appreciate that we are parts of a superorganism, that even we as cells are often like different types of cells - meant for fundamentally different responsibilities and to fit into different structures (tissues) that serve various functions.

    (Granted, things have changed somewhat, and its not as easy to just follow our instincts)

    Anyway, cities individually combine into yet larger systems (at one point, there mostly used to be city states - now they work together as parts of yet larger systems)... and as the systems grow, they take on qualities of their own beyond those of the people that make them up.

    New York has a character, that goes beyond just the people that make it up - it has its infrastructure, laws, its own processes - its own relationships with other places... stuff not easily changed or influenced by the pieces that make it up... and its nature allows it to be a somewhat dependable part of yet larger systems.

    Anyway, at some point, I expect things like cities through advancing technology to become much more self-contained, kinda like cells... no longer dependent on the specializations of other places / countries - just needing relatively basic resources (actually, I wouldn't be surprised if people could individually become cell like too - in working with technology)...

    My eventual expectation is to see cities fly out of our planet, and spawn more space cities as they grow (one possibility anyway).

    I wonder, what you think of say... a tree. Each cell is actually something of a self-replicating machine / computer. These self-replicating systems that come together to form these structures... Built up of billions upon billions of these self-replicating machines.

    I think we look at things from fundamentally the wrong scale. We think of size from a human reference frame, but these are complex pieces of technology. If we built something similar - in a way that we could easily conceptualize and recognize the various parts - it might be huge.

    From a certain perspective, we're these giant lumbering hulks, that move really slow... and in many ways not that different from how a tree is a giant lumbering hulk of a thing growing and expanding, using resources to build billions upon billions of replicated new cells.

    ... and then there's the whole evolution aspect, the trees are just another random creation born of what created us, as are birds, as are insects.... And where the 2 billion years or so life on earth would be 66 million generations of humans, its actually been much more generations since most older creatures were smaller and shorter lived.

    ... In a way, early life has already expanded ridiculously far, in coming to consume and reshape this world - filling it with endless variations of possibilities (probably what we'll do if we end up leaving the planet)... Think about the initial cells, viruses, or rather their predecessors and how small they were relative to the planet.

    Just letting you know on your freewriting one that I am not psychotic even though those short stories may come off that way. Just what kind of creative writing stuff comes from my head.

    I see. I do have several female characters that I've created, but none of them are really what I would call my ideal. The girl from my dream is nothing like any of my characters either. I also do mostly fantasy and sci-fi, so appearances and personalities tend to be a bit different than what you'd typically see in real life.

    I daydream a lot, yes. I suppose I write also, although I haven't done much lately. I'm not really a big reader, though, unless it's to learn something, but I do play a lot of video games.

    Why do you ask?

    Oh gawd yes :D

    He separates the males and females, but every now and then they break loose and mate, then he has more piggies to look after as he can't bring himself to give any of them away. His wife has told him a few times "it's either me or the pigs", but so far they're still together and all the piggies remain Phew
