Joe Rogan (yes, the Fear Factor host) isn’t as well known for his comedy. On his 2007 DVD, Joe Rogan Live, he begins with a rant on how humans are just a complicated form of bacteria (Link – NSFW (language)). Although this is not a new idea (Howard Bloom addresses this idea in two books: “The Lucifer Principle” and “The Global Brain” and got the idea from this else where), I find it interesting that Rogan’s dvd begins with something so, well, serious. While his comments on this topic can be viewed as pessimistic, there is no doubt in my mind that his cynicism is in some part true.
Technology does not equal stability.
