Hi Mike,

Good thing I apologized in advance; it seems that I did disappoint you.

"I note that Paul's definition of "more advanced"
humans can be entirely accomplished through making better warriors in a wasteful and cruel process...unless Paul clarifies this.

Scrub your note. I'll try to clarify this. I didn't define "more advanced". I just agreed with the observation that making better warriors in a wasteful and cruel process has contributed to the development of civilization as we know it up to a point. That point was probably some time in 1945. Since that time, I think we have made progress on reducing the "cruel" component. We still have a lot of work to do on the "wasteful" component. But I think the day is coming when we will dispense with warrioring altogether as a means of advancing human life. So, to help clean up your note, you need to change "can be" to 'has been', and change "entirely" to 'partially'.

Warm regards,
