You are also welcome to use the Real Life But OA Relevant or General Off-topic Discussion sub-forums, depending on which you think better fits whatever you're discussing. Personally I think it's the former, based on what you've mentioned in passing so far, but your call.

I also wasn't even discussing my job anymore other than an introduction, which, to me, seems a pretty basic "This is who I am, hi everyone" kind of post. Any sociocultural subcontext you may read into it is not intended. In fact, replying to these questions was a form of being nice; Someone seemed interested in something I said, so I figured I'd clarify.

Fair enough. Although, I would point out that most of the verbiage about OA has come from our side of things. You've mentioned some ideas about transhumanism and how they might relate to OA, true. But, those have been mixed in with posts about a video game, and your implants and your gene therapies. Or RL options in implants and gene therapies in general. The percentage of OA to non-OA is kind of tilting in one direction atm.Wink

If you want to discuss those kind of things, the two sub-forums mentioned above (as well as the Books, Games, Movies, and TV sub-forum) are both available and appropriate. If you want to discuss OA, then of course, we have various sub-forums for that too, depending on the details of the discussion.

Maybe I could contribute to the bright/superbright/genetic stuff or whatever? From what I've read, cybernetics were pretty ubiquitous. I read a lot on SIRI, anyway. Seems more plausible than extensive genetic stuff, ultimately, remains a somewhat limited substrate IMO. But that's just, like, my opinion.

Feel free to contribute to/start any discussions you want on the relevant sub-forum. It will be up to each individual member if they want to join in, but most of the time that works itself out just fine on its own.

Cybernetics are indeed very ubiquitous in the OA setting. It's had 10,000 or so years to develop after all. However, gengineering and its results is also extremely common, all the way to the point of being the primary foundation for nearly all technology in some (although not a majority of) cultures and empires (some of them with significant power and reach).

Hope this helps and looking forward to seeing your initial drafts.
