COMMENTS
Seriously, thank you for reminding of autopoesis.

The gentleman speaking at the end of Chimpanzees (as the closest human relatives) makes the mistake of many militarists, paternalists, and technocrats of omitting Bonobos. Without their inclusion as reference point the possibility of more geo-practical species' praxis is missed.

The speaker previous to the last is proposing technical solutions to technical problems, as if human survival is based on the next best widget. Sad. Be the one to change, rather than thinking of remaining comfortable in your white tower while coming up with a better mousetrap.
