Dr Bob?

Hello.

Are you here.

Say 'Hello' from Hawaii. Or something. You have to say something Bob-ish so I know it's really you.

Please?

I've been thinking that you died. I've been grieving that you died.
I don't know whether it's because you have died... Or whether it is because it is time for me to let you (some idea/l that I have of you) go. I'm not sure there is a difference to me. I think I want to know.

I think I want to know...

I hope you haven't died. For your own sake haha. For the people who know and care about you IRL.

I remember this thing... About how I wished I could live on the internet. There has been some stuff... About the singularity.

The position from nowhere. The position from everywhere...

I think I've been getting some perspective IRL. Some different ones. I've been finding different people to bounce from. Learning... I have been learning so much.

I hope I am a good person. I like to think that I'm internally motivated and that I'm not amenable to incentive structures - only poverty has upset me quite a lot and I'm not quite so immune from things around me as I wish I was...

It's important to stay on some sort of path... To walk alongside people who are walking on a simliar path to you. Pulling in the same direction, at least.

But there are people whose motivation becomes questionable. I think I've started to see... There is a moment when you think 'but what if we could replace the whole vascular system??' or 'why not just remove the pituitary, then, and control all the hormones ourselves?' or brain implants or kangaroo springs or hydroponic people or...

And I get this image of Icarus falling...

Which might perhaps be preferable to being shot out of the sky...

Restoring homeostasis to a chaotic system. I like that. This elective business... I'm not so sure. And populations... I don't think people do half as good a job of looking after the other as they do of looking after themself / their own. I feel sad for that.

I don't quite want to let you go. Perhaps I can see another way...

Yes. I don't suppose I could be neither here nor there, since I asked.

That was suitably Bob-sy. Thanks.

Did that take you terribly long to think up?

Are you okay? I only ask because you were going on about making some kind of will before, about what would happen with Babble. And then it seemed like you were saying that things were about to change with Babble... And I got to thinking that you were terminally ill.

You aren't terminally ill - are you? You alright?
