Pretty much most serious aspects related to the Singularity seem to be greatly under-discussed. I think we need to look at all the political, legal, ethical, economic, religious and even existential implications that arise from such a radically unique event…
George Dvorsky's Sentient Developments blog is a good place to start for those unfamiliar with the concept of animal rights in relation to Singularity objectives.
Dvorsky is now an outspoken omnivore, a radical switch from his history as an outspoken vegetarian. All the more reason to discuss the serious issue of non-human animal rights in the context of dominate human choice. I certainly do not speak for Dvorsky, but my understanding of his reasoning is eating animals makes him feel stronger, and he's able to lift heavy weights faster and with more repetition:
I'm sure other forward-thinking omnivores have other reasons for killing and eating sentient animals, or for supporting the killing and eating of sentient animals. I would like to see a polite discussion of the reasoning behind omnivorism, vegetarianism, and veganism in the context of non-human animal rights in relation to Singularity objectives. [Image Can Not Be Found] I would specifically like to see a polite discussion of proposals on how to choose which sentient animals to uplift in a potential pre- (or post-)Singularity consciousness matrix and which sentient animals to kill and eat.
