Granted. Problem is, you killed our evolutionary path. We were *meant* to become entities of pure energy with perfect minds and godlike powers. Granted... this was due to incredibly advanced technology. But point remains. We remain human. Homo sapien.
Instead we are surpassed by, repressed, and enslaved by other species in the energy-form-evolutionary-race. We're allowed to keep truly advanced technology- up to and including interplanetary travel- but any tech that involves energy manipulation and conversion is banned and results in a purge every time we try.
Still- we have awesome technology and are literally the dominant flesh based organism in this galaxy. Which is some kind of comfort, I guess, since we're universally slaves whose only semblance of freedom is that our masters don't care about us enough to set us on fire for their own amusement.
I wish to be a godlike energy life form.
