Yeah, they're dumb. They don't need to be smart because their physical abilities are so strong.

Agree. It's strange how our physical body can be so affected by our thoughts.

Mass Population Correction. I like that. If it comes in my lifetime, the machine I will probably form a lifetime bond with will surely have a trigger!
I like modern society. Sadly, at some stage billions will die and there's no other way things can possibly turn out as far as I can tell. The Earth will really transform in the next 50 years. Baby Boomers and Gen Xs are very lucky to be born when we were. The last few generations have enjoyed a golden age of prosperity. There may be other golden ages in the future, but I suspect not for a long time.

I guess that's kind of destiny.
