I, too, would like to thank everyone for an interesting and insightful discussion. And I do hope all are ok and recovering from Hurrican Sandy.
>> If we circled to some degree, it would be because of the irreducibly human and worldly problems at the center of the topic of "Pain, Suffering, and Death in the Virtual." No "progress" is desirable or possible on this topic. What would it mean to leave this behind? How could we? What would we be without the topic of pain and suffering? The topic will continue, we have no choice.
Yes, I think the topic will continue, as we live in suffering and pain:
Life must go on;
I forget just why.
Edna St. Vincent Millay
But at the same time, I would invite us to have a discussion on the conveying of all emotions and human experience--of the joy of living as well.
