    Kathy McMahon has been an extremely important peak oil voice for me over the years. I’m one of those who (probably mistakenly) tried to broach the peak oil issue with family and friends. I’ll admit to making bad some ill-advised choices over the years because of my “peak oil paranoia” especially in those early years of Peak Oil, before I had heard some of Kathy’s good advice. All part of the learning process. Regarding this interview, I was especially interested in both KMOs and Kathy’s comments regarding recent focus on nutrition. My own peak oil journey has led me to really focus on my health as being my primary “wealth”. In addition to nutrition, I would also say that it has led to spending as much time as possible (given work and family schedule) in nature, mostly hiking. It makes me stronger mentally and physically. John Muir summed it up well: “Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.”

    I’m not sure I’d be so quick to dismiss Pistorius as “a cyborg”. It wouldn’t be surprising if his nervous system related to his prosthetics in a way that’s more similar to how human beings’ nervous systems generally relate to body parts than to how human beings’ nervous systems generally relate to tools. Sure, you could draw a boundary where a cyborg is defined as an individual that interfaces with technology through electrochemical signals, and excludes individuals whose nervous systems interface with technology in other ways, but I don’t think that’s the most useful definition.

    Not to imply that I’m not facinated by the prospect of creating technology that’s literally part of someone’s body (or mind). But in some ways, the question of how people interact with technology as if it’s part of their body or mind (whatever the implementation details of that relationship) is more interesting.
