Re: <nettime> Steven Levy: Joi Ito Explains Why Donald Trump Is Like

   Homo Sapiens does not exist in "strains" - it is a single species.

   Also I'd prefer not to read "more pussy for me" in a nettime message.

   There is a possibility that 'we' (h. sapiens in various strains) cannot
   obtain 'true satisfaction' from long term activities which are not
   related to survival and getting ahead within a tribe (more pussy for
   me). In that sense engaging in esoteric activities is simply an
   effective status symbol (string theory is SUV for the braniacs) and not
   some abstract pursuit of happiness.
