    Ignite Phoenix #9 - Wheelchairs and Wisdom: Living Life at Butt Level

    "I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit."

    I think is very possible, robotics and nanotechnology advances much faster than medicine. And they are fields without ethic and politic problems, and with more funds.
    Sorry to sound negative, but with politic delays and crisis, plus natural slowness of medicine, i think that many of us won´t see the biological fix.

    Not negative at all, it just a slow moving endeavor. If you're 50 years old, or close to 50, I don't think you'll see it. SCI's in their late 30's or 40's it's probably doubtful. For those in their 20's or early 30's, there's a good choice they'll see some improvement in their lifetime; I certainly hope they do.

    Rollin RIck,

    Not a prediction, just my opinion. Things have changed little in my 7 years of SCI.

    We could hope that things are starting to move faster now you've elected an administration that doesn't have their warheads so far up their own ideology*********'s that they could only glimpse a microscopic ray of what common people refer to as common sense, through their navels.
    Things are lightning up except for the fact that your economy is so utterly ruined by (partly, I admit) the very same people as already mentioned.
