Le Petit Prince

"Let's go to the videotape!" was the famous exclamation used by ABC's Warner Wolf. Of course that's ancien regime. Remember Howard Cosell's enunciating "Esteban de Jesus" with his Brooklyn twang. Cosell's father, Isidore, was an accountant. The son had numbers in his blood. As strange as that might seem think about it. Isn't statistics what baseball is about? But let's go back to the the latest iteration of AI.  What will distant progeny do when the earth dies? Will they inhabit cyberspace, having discarded their corporeal essence? Or will they join a generational wagon train of biospheres aiming for one of the planets orbiting a Kepler star 1200 light years from earth. Will the human race be split between those looking for a new home and those left behind to play virtual reality games? A mille mille de tout les endroits habite--Antoine de Saint-Exupery
