Would you want to be a borg?
I wrote this as a joke in another thread but now I want to know what others think.
The Borg are fictional alien race from the television show Star Trek. This race is composed of thousands of different species all mentally networked together so that they function as a single unit. The network allows their individual bodies to become mere tools to do the will of the collective. Each individual mind is accounted for though and they get to live in a dream like state flowing along with every other mind.
They can imagine themselves frying an omelet simultaneously along with millions of other thoughts and memories all at the same time. They’re flying in space ships and invading planets and assimilating innocents the universe over all while having a nice cup of tea, saving damsels from fire breathing dragons and surfing the waves on Jupiter.
So, my question is… would it really be that bad to be a Borg?
