Obama wants 100 million for brain mapping project
So the goal is find cures for diseases that can kill us. Seems reasonable at first glance but, really, do we need to stay alive forever? Isn't there a point where we should stop being selfish, move over and give our seat to someone else? We can't find jobs for everyone now. We all use energy are already frantically trying to find new sources of it for our own use.
I've recently read suggestions that we are not an evolving but a devolving species...that everything we have been doing for thousands of years to improve our lives and increase our longevity is, in reality, detrimental to our own survival.
Really, Mr. President. Use your own brain this time to think beyond the snapshot and look at the bigger picture. Every time you clean something, you make something else dirty.
