    All I do is make them happy and they do everything else.

    They love doing and they love me and I love them. And I love contemplating.

    I contemplate them. I contemplate myself. I contemplate the whole world while my beautiful girls delight in doing things around me.

    Whoopee! I couldn't ask for more - just delegate.


    You're killing me, Victor.

    I just never know what you're gonna say next.




    PEACE OUT!!!

    And we should be grateful, for all the trouble in the world is caused by people who do things.

    Everything from colonialism to globalization is caused by people who do things.

    Doers make the world go round. But have you noticed, the world is stopping. It is slowing down, it is taking a deep breath and lying back and contemplating.

    Yes, the noosphere bring everything back again for recognition, that is re-cognition. And re-cognition is simply contemplation.

    And contemplatives are made for the noosphere. Contemplatives are fit for the noosphere, while extroverts, the doers, are unfit. So natural selection will relegate the extroverts. And introverts will breed like rabbits. Bill Gates, the richest introvert in the world, is a sign of things to come.

    And yes, we should rejoice at the coming ascendancy of the introverts. But we should remember how badly the extroverts treated us when they were on top, and we should not return evil for evil. Rather we should soothe the dying pillow of the extroverts as they keep on, keeping on, trying to do things, but becoming more and more impotent as each day passes.

    And we will be grateful our day has finally come.
    There's a big hole in your argument. Contemplatives may be fit for the noosphere (whatever the hell that is), but survival of the fittest is applicable only as far as their fitness enables them to survive long enough to procreate. Unfortunately for your kind, no amount of technology will cause introverts to "breed like rabbits."

    Take NT's for instance. NT's are the by far the most strategic and able out of all four temperaments. Why then do they constitute such a meager portion of the population? Because nerds rarely get laid.

    Sorry, Victor. The only way you're going to get rid of us is through a widely enforced system of selective breeding. But even with eugenics, extroverts won't be the ones on the way out - if our overlords are wise. It would be better to get rid of the NFs and the SPs. Then, NT's will be free to advance (or stultify) the human race, which will be made up mostly of SJs who will actively carry out whatever systems the NT's put in place.

    We're here to stay precisely because we're doing. We're doing eachother.

    Nerds get laid a lot when they find each other.

    In fact, since they aren't wasting time partying and socializing, more time for it.

    The internet has helped MANY nerds find mates. Not the least of which are the now-rich nerds who invented it.

    I sense that Victor's posts strike a deep cord with many who do not want to acknowledge that this cord has been struck, and so must dismiss Victor's posts as flights of fancy.

    I also get a "feeling" through my intuition that the world is changing. As Stephen King's gunslinger would say, "the world has moved on." However, in this culture I don't sense that people are turning inward to contemplation. Instead, everyone is simply dancing a 3rd Law of Thermodynamics 3-step. This country is not gaining widsom; it's simply devolving into collectivism. The exception to this are the town hall protestors who are rising up to rage against the collectivism of government take-overs. Many of these protestors are over 50, over 60, and have always worked within the system, propping it up, and are just now awakening from the Matrix. It is quite a sight to see.

    So, while I agree with you that the world is changing, I see things a little differently, and point out that there are some exceptions. In some cases, the introverts may be extroverting. Nature abhors a vacuum...
