Intelligence is intelligence and until we have a clear understanding as to how our ideas are created and what consciousness is we are messing with a likely time bomb. If we don’t do anything to preserve ourselves what’s to stop the next level of consciousness to eliminate any and all threats to itself? We are extremely destructive as a species. I’m not ultimately concerned about preserving humans but consciousness is totally worth preserving it just may need to find another form to fill itself in.

This friend of yours was harvesting cannabis and lying to you about strawberries. They grow 8 inches from the ground bending up and down being paid by the weight. If you buy strawberries for $5/pint retail, the pickers are getting maybe a .25 piece. It is an insanely low paying job for the simple yet back breaking job.
