    Sounds awful but it would be nice for lost kids. Then again we could just fingerprint everyone. And that's never happened.

    That's exactly what the flaw is.

    No matter what someone can do, another person can exploit or circumvent.

    so if there is misplaced faith in the technology, there'll be a lot of crap going down.


    .... as a weird side analogy, I read on Cracked this past week that the nuclear bombs waaay back in the day (50/60's) had a password attached to prevent someone from setting them off. (smart idea!) However, since people were afraid of forgetting the password at the crucial moment, the password was set to '00000000'. Yeah, root position.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Your smartphone is a sort of barcode. It tells those who are listening, a lot more than a simple number could.

    He required everyone--small and great, rich and poor, free and slave--to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. Revelation 13:16.

    Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.

    I tried my best to stir the hive in order to get people to take sides on this matter. Although I failed with that, you Jennifer arrived on the point that I was trying to make sooner than I could myself.

    Although mankind is destined to continue this path, in the sense that even though some poor bastards will cockroach through the radioactive wastes somewhere in the future, they won't change their ways.

    When we no longer corrupt and exploit our surroundings, if that day ever come. We will have transcended humanity and become a new species.
