The problem with cities is that by their very nature they protect against attacks by giant enemies.


No, they protect against attack by other primates.  A gigantic fucking lizard loose in Chicago would be damn near impossible to stop.

The reason they protect against attacks by giant, say, lizards/bears/angry elephants/etc. is because there is no habitat here to speak of. A giant lizard in Chicago would, just like a small lizard in Chicago, end up dying of dehydration or cold within a few days. Plus it would have no reason to be near Chicago in the first place; someone would have to bring it there.

Please stop fucking up my dreams with your hideous reality.   :argh!:

I have to... it's a sickness.

he could just get scared and go on a rampage ala circus elephant
Through me the way to the city of woe, Through me the way to everlasting pain, Through me the way among the lost.
Justice moved my maker on high.
Divine power made me, Wisdom supreme, and Primal love.
Before me nothing was but things eternal, and eternal I endure.
Abandon all hope, you who enter here.

Dante

Apologies if this was already posted, but I can't be bothered to read seven pages just to say something clever...


Shouldn't an emergence-based religion occur on its own?  :P

It is.

Is it?

If my consciousness is an emergence system based in bio/bio connections, then I am Emergence, therefore Emergence-based religion is occurring on it's (Emergence's) own.  8) (cleverness given in return; mental masturbation, ALL OF IT)

Also, I didn't have to force these conclusions if you know what I mean.

Unless Kai isn't a biological life form.  Is that the position you wish to take?

I'm one of those weird carbon based proteinaceous beings with dioxyribonucleotide storage of genetic material. Don't know if that makes me living or not, but I'm going with "living" anyway.

Yeah. I mean, crystalline latticeworks are pretty and all, but try BEING one for a while. Must be boring as fuck.

Well, that's not what I meant, but sure.  My first wife was like that.
