What a dreadful dismal year that was. If you started the year with any faith in humanity, you surely didn’t end it that way. The dominant emotion of the year was disbelief and a sense of futility. You felt you were living through a bad dream. Perhaps strangely, I had a productive year philosophically: I wrote a lot and quite liked what I wrote. It felt like a refuge from all the nastiness and stupidity. Will 2017 be any better? I doubt it.

    I hope in 2017 you will be interacting critically with Kurzweil’s theories re the brain.

    I foresee a further twenty years of continuous aggravation until it breaks down. Let’s be patient.
