I shed my vulgar flesh
for a pure, mechanized mesh
of self-replicating nanobots.
I leave my horrid form,
as a feast for each small worm
in a cold, damp, and freshly-dug grave.
This is my exodus
from wrath, sorrow, amorous
yearnings, terror, boredom, and envy.
There shall be no more flood
of vile hormones in my blood
because this metallic shell has none.
My consciousness resides
in each "cell" so nothing hides
from my notice or from my control.
If I lived in a science-fiction story, I would try something like this.

Just because one lacks chemicals, does not mean one has no feelings.
Emotion is necessary for many things. Art, for one.

Actually, it's supposed to be a happy poem that describes my rejection of the sins of the flesh.

My skills are failure-istic. :(

It's a total rejection of "my" former, fleshy existence.

But why? Would it be worth leaving passion? It's the reason I keep going.

These days anger is my only motivator. Negative emotions are physically painful. Maybe, I need religion or something.

Thank you for your reply.

P.S. Drow rock!

cool poemy thing... ive heard a monk call trans humanism a religion, although i disagree with him. also negative emotions are there for a reason, if something causes you pain your supposed to get rid of it.

I think the monk may be partially correct. Transhumanism seems like a secular religion. They think that technology will transform their minds and their lives, like a religion does.

there similar in that aspect, however religion is based purely on faith (belief without evidence) and there is nothing supernatural about transhumanism.

NO RELIGION!!! PLEASE! We're stronger and more brave if we accept reality for what it really is, even if it isn't life condusive or in our favor. Let others use the crutch.
