there's a lot of these losers believe in an ai godhead.

they basically want massive depopulation and about a million of them living forever. nutcases.

there are religions and everything.

they sell it like it's reasonable but it's about wiping out all of humanity and leaving a earth++ for these superior nerds.

No. I'm making it up

Deus ex machina: former Google engineer is developing an AI god
Way of the Future, a religious group founded by Anthony Levandowski, wants to create a deity based on artificial intelligence for the betterment of society

'betterment' = a lot less humans.

MDMA and LSD are my favourite drugs by far, weed is great but it's a different approach. The blog talks about having deep emotional conversations with important family members / friends etc while on it. It is surely undeniable that you form a stronger bond with your friends though getting off your tits, so a structured approach (now & then - not like you should be mandied off your face for Sunday lunch) to it is also interesting.
Sorry for my ignorance, but doesnít MDMA heat you up like a furnace and make a heart attack something like 60% more likely?

I think it really, as with anything, depends on how much you take & how often. Lots of info here.
