An excellent article, absolutely excellent. Also, this articulated something that's critical: 'In short, and as mentioned, while many in technological singularity communities have developed utopian conceptions of the future of technology, governed by the pleasure principle, Millar is asking us to prepare for the beginning of an intensification of culture wars operating at the site of the body. These culture wars will be decidedly unpleasurable, taking place at a locus of unpleasure/suffering, where the stakes are not life and death, but immortality and jouissance.' --Perfectly put, and "The Moral Real" (to play on Lacan) is everything and on the way. This cannot be over-stated.
