Creating our Partner

I suspect someday, when we have the interfaces needed to have computer-aided annotations of our thoughts with less mediation than fingers, we will teach computers how to think as much as they will teach us how to think.

There is so much of our animal nature in us that we're barely thinking. We lack the mental discipline. Instead of using emotions to set our values, we let them cloud our basic habits of thought. Our memories are too short. We have too much difficulty manipulating ourselves, too little ability to place hooks into future experiences saying "step back, $note".

This is the exciting transhumanism: aiding philosophical and intellectual virtue.
