Kitty Calls BS On Transhumanism

But after we die, do we get eated by Ceiling Cat
or Basement Cat?

(Or Robokoneko?)

Not really a spoiler alert when the film that is life pretty much ends the same way every time. It's called a trope.

Of course, what is spoiled is the Robot Cultist's wish-fulfillment fantasy, which was premised on a denial of the fact that everybody knows the story ends the same way every time. It's an ironic play on the accepted usage of the phrase "spoiler alert." It's called a trope, when the term trope is used correctly. (If I didn't hate emoticons so much I would provide a smiley here at the end to signal my tone is kindly and warm in saying this, rather than acerbic and dismissive.)

Indeed Dale I was just engaging in the word play. AHHAA! Transhumanists dismiss reality for fantasy failing to see that the story line of life has a solid and resolute end and all things degrade and and wither away, never to be reconstructed in any way, shape, or form. You'd think that such a "cliche" (LOL) that has played over and over and over again, myriad times, and has proven itself to be final in each and every instance in the story of life would stick firmly in the heads of the deluded transhumanists EVENTUALLY...even though they are deluded.
