    Post The Prometheus spirit

    Do you have it?

    I have talked to another NT that doesn't care about improving the world, he just want to gain knowledge and take it to his grave.

    Do you want to give back your knowledge and wisdom to the world once you reach success, or do you just care about yourself and take it all to the grave.

    I would give back. I think I have a responsibility to improve the world so future generations would be better and not to suffer, despite how evil my goals are.

    Yes. I wish to give it back and have a worldwide impact.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    People will keep stealing, cheating, murdering, and doing a lot of stupid things no matter what I do. I want my existence to have some impact, but I can't change human nature.
    Would I share knowledge? Definitely; but the interest would be primarily selfish - essentially, to fulfill the need to feel important (Dale Carnegie covers it very well).

    A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
    A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '

    It depends on how I think the knowledge would be used.
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “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

    Oh. I thought this was a thread about being excited for the Aliens prequel.

    Because I definitely have the Prometheus spirit there.

    But in all seriousness, I don't really see the overall point in not using my knowledge for something altruistic. No man is an island and all that.

    Glad to know that I wasn't the only one.

    Yes but some of the knowledge I acquire is useless facts that isn't going to help the world. If it is potentially useful then I like to share my wisdom and help others with it.
