    Maybe. It seems a little light on the Ti, what with all that unfounded optimism.

    This sounds like biology's/medicine's version of AI. But definitely alpha.

    I want them to download my consciousness onto a hard drive of some sort, then plug me into a giant robot. Only then will I be able to carry out my dream of destroying humanity.

    I think this is Delta-ish/Beta-ish idea. The Betas are more concerned about maintaining youthful vigor, while the Deltas are more about immortality.

    Alpha NT typically are more concerned with comprehension of the universe and fighting injustice. Pipe-dreams of immortality is typically distasteful to me.

    Do you want to dispel the clouded thinking of the eco-doomsayers and pessimists?
    Do you want to throw off ingrained barriers to effective thinking and action?
    Do you want to continuously improve yourself - physically, intellectually, morally?
    Do you think that technology can and should help us overcome biological, genetic, and neurological limits to our abilities and goals?
    Anyways, it doesn't really matter actually what goals we work towards.

    Comprehend and do as interests begets, then see the surprises. The means to idealistic end are unknown, and at best unreliable. Were they reliable, it would be in-front of us.

    This sort of goal oriented perversion of curiosity isn't really Alpha, although Alpha can use this sort of rhetoric in acquiring funding or support for their ideas.
