What if we had the infiltration of non rationalists who, through their cunning, gained control and we ended up with what we've got now? lol Or what if the road to being a rationalist is paved by the mistakes of the non rationalists eg the original thought to live forever may not have come from a rationalist, but can only be determined by a rationalist.? lolx2 Or worse, the richness of life is felt, or only made real by the exquisite angst that is caused by the tension between rationality and mendacity?
