Hello Mr. Gluck,
My name is Margarita Iudin. I read your essay without rating it. I feel confused about how the authors rate each other.
This is what I think about your essay.
1. You were not right to give your personal information (oppressed, second class, dictatorship, and so on).
2. Your references like blogosphere, wikipedia and other open sources are anonymous and not thoughtful
3. The great scientist Freeman Dyson? Why Freeman Dyson?
4. If something is not improved, it decays
When something will improve significantly, its quality or essence will change, it will stop to be the same something, Hegelian dialectics
In temporal world everything is temporal , Ecclesiastes would be a good reference source
I guess you should be more specific about this something of yours
5. Technology game This is good, technoscience game
Technoscience is the word invented by Stanislaw Lem, the philosopher, futurist and guru of science fiction)
6. The great logician Kurt Gödel
Heisenberg and Neumann share their admiration for Gödel
Einstein in his late years in Princeton would have daily walk-and-talk with Gödel
Einstein said these walks were the best thing he had in Princeton
Many people who use Gödel name and refer to Gödel's work do not understand what it is about; the Incompleteness theorem is catchy
6. You appeal to very specific cultural memos. There is a strong impression that you wrote your essay for your friends most of whom are Romanian Jews. Psalms is great literature work, the reading Psalms helps people to go through the miseries of human life.
However, I believe that ultimate truth (Truth) is beyond our understanding
7. The rules of real-life problem solving agreeable
This is the best part of your essay clear and reasonable
8. Teflon which is not found in nature?
Not so sure, there are many things there but people miss to see them.
What properties of Teflon and what technology do you refer to?
9. to steer the future with control over technological progress, transfer and transformation of energy-matter-information utopia
Obviously, people are not able to control themselves
Triplet energy-matter-information very good
Please read my essay on your convenience and share your opinion.
