Ray Kurtzweil and the Transhumanist crew may disagree, but for those of us still hooked into a biological perspective, the future ends with old age, sickness, and death. This isn’t true only of you and me—individual organisms. It’s also true of our current culture, social arrangements, and species. The Earth will die, and a little while after that the Sun will die too. We can migrate to other star systems, maybe, but those too will pass. Everything that exists is … Continue reading Neurodiversions: Facing Death

More than 7,000 horses have been abandoned in the past year in the wake of the economic downturn and the horsemeat scandal. RSPCA estimates show a sharp rise in the number of healthy horses left to die as owners cannot afford to keep them and in many cases cannot afford to have them put down either. Earlier this year a global investigation was launched when horsemeat was discovered in processed beef and thousands of burgers and ready meals were pulled from supermarket shelves. Overbreeding also has to be brought under control, campaigners say. Prices have plummeted and ponies can change … Continue reading 7,000 UK horses abandoned in the past year after burger meat scandal
