30 K $ , that's the price of a car( a good one , granted)
Besides , you can stay in there till we abandon currency like in Star Trek , and come out and kill as many livers as you want.

The score is still 1-0 for mine , the lucky bastard - I'll teach him.*glug*

When you know everything you cannot create anything. It will be just a process of mindless assembly.

Knowing is one thing , experiencing things through human eyes .... that's an endless mystery.

Experiencing is adding to knowing, so it IS learning. When you know everything you will never see anything new that makes you wonder or catches your imagination. These experiences are only possible with discovery, which is only possible with learning.

RE: Cure for death?
I have to disagree on the dual standard we humans have of emotion versus reason.
You can know things true reason , but experiencing them is emotional.
I can learn about evolution but seeing E-coli bacteria evolve over 50000 generations and 20 years is an emotion , one of joy and wonder and splendor of the world.
I'm not sure that's the best example , but you know what I mean.
And I wonder why people think we can know everything at some point ?

Exprience is another form of learning. You cannot know everything until you have experienced everything. Intrinsic knowledge is the knowledge that come from experience and it is a deeper and more profound than abstract knowledge, which you get from classrooms and books.

I think that what we are hung up on is just the descriptions of how we see and describe knowledge.

RE: Cure for death?
Possibly this is just a conflict of nomenclature.
