Some may find this presentation on other dystopias interesting: http://www.sun-tect.com/Nerdnite.html (look at the presentation links). It seems as though we are working against what has become a trajectory toward sexual (and relationship related) dystopia. At least sexuality wasn’t singled out.
Is neuroscience a way out or just putting into some sort of temporary staging point? Science until now seems to be sending us more toward dystopia and not the other way around. Maybe utopia is too boring. I was at a venue recently where the MC in passing mentioned that good sex is boring. Less dysfunction means less dopamine. I hope we’re not doomed to a world of drama queens (and kings).
