If that is a concern of yours you may want to reconsider the use of goggles.


They serve a purpose. The untinted corrective lenses, less so.

I thought part of the screening process for capsuleer candidacy is having 20/20 vision. Why do you have corrective lenses?

A Minmatar warship is like a rusting Beetle with 500 horsepower Cardillac engines in the rear, armour plating bolted to chassis and a M2 Browning stuck on top.

That's why I'm asking why people keep wearing those untinted ones!

I thought the ones sold on the NES are purely cosmetic in purpose?

Well they do have a neat head up display as well. Although that can also be achieved with contact lenses or implants.

I tried the contact lenses, but the redness from poking myself in the eye was unsightly.

But for some of us, our genetic flaws are a package of who we are.

Also, I already have a heads up display which blinks on every time I open my eyes. A second set is really redundant and interferes with the first set.

You've just given an unapologetic, megalomanical narcissist the perfect opportunity to perform some horrendous deed to crush your expectations and elicit yet another response to you.

What did I tell you yesterday?

You might be putting more weight on those words than I did, Ms.Ember.

I'll just say that I'm disappointed in you. If you intend to comport yourself in this manner, I'd recommend you place a block on your own communications.

Yes well, many people like to tell me they're disappointed in me. One reason I tend to avoid meddling in the affairs of others. My experiences compelled me to make the attempt in this case. If my not agreeing with you is a disappointment I suppose that's something you'll have to live with. A shame.

Flaw and Perfection imply there is an "ideal" mold to aspire and the degrees of difference from this "idea" are bad.

Usually people set their respective deity as the ultimate perfection mold and aspire to be closer to it or content themselves in looking at it and punishing themselves for not being closer-equal to it.

So i find very hard to understand how people think like this when all this is an illusion and whatever is is right for it couldn´t be otherwise.

My statement was more in the general sense, but since you went there... if you look at the context, we're talking about bio-engineering. There is no 'aspiring' in whether or not something will work. Either it will, or it won't. If it won't, the reasons it won't are flaws. You correct them. Period.

But thanks for demonstrating my actual point.

If it can be otherwise, it will. Until then, it isn´t.

Bio-engineering is a way of changing things. Things that can be changed respecting the rules of the dreamstate.

No need for better, worst, flaw, perfect, just different.

We´re talking about the same thing dear, remove the googles to have a better look at it.
