Carrico, in a Futurological Brickbat(shit): " To profess the dream of making an intelligent robot is always to confess the nightmare that one imagines oneself already merely a mineral."
Later, in a post called No Need to Call the Priest, he complains about "the Anonymous wag who has already e-mailed me triumphantly to declare me exposed as a mystic because of a recent Futurological Brickbat".
Contrary to Carrico, I have no problem with those who, for various reasons, prefer to be anonymous on the net. If, however, he prefers signed comments, then I wish to second and sign the anonymous comment. If this is not mysticism or vitalism, can someone explain to me what it is.
