Car pollution is not all that intolerable if you are a car, or a computer, a drone, etc.. As a car that has no ability, currently, to fear its own death/demise, and can not care, the question of its own pollution is a bit like that of a baby in the sense that “i am un-able to deal with it”.
NOw, lets suppose that we begin to have more organic cars. Cars that perhaps evolve themselves. They can be all for moving people from a to b. They can be much better than people in navigating without causing accidents, they can even be much better than people in loving themselves.
However, will they be able to join the pollution debate as equals?
It seems to me that once a body of types, human, car, dog, etc, begins to interact with Time – ie evolve, move itself in time – then we need to deal with the Nature of time. If an element in that nature is, in this Universe, moving into a future then by definition, the future can never be pre-known. Future, To Be in the future has to be unknown.
Therefore, if cars could evolve, they will have to share with everyone here the un know ability of how they might be evolving, how they might be moving in time into various differences of themselves.
These differences, like some humans we know, might rather fancy pollution and indeed polluting very much, no?
In a sense here we get into the nature of time. The wilderness of time. How wild time can be. Pollution, or the stuff we call pollution is a 1st attempt, perhaps unintentional, to cultivate time.
Time as an instant infinity can imagined as supporting stuff certain organic earthians can find hard to breath and live with. However, if we let pollution be in time, it can be thought of as an infinity that time can evolve, or evolve in time.
This thought though is, from a time-pollution view, a bit mistaken. It is based on assuming materials that make it hard for organic beings like monkeys and moths, humans, and rats – hard to live with – be constantly intriduced into time.
However, the very introduction into time of these “polluting” materials, is dependent upon humans. If this very pollution brings people into extinction – or near it – the pollution production will stop.
Unless humans make some other being that evolves spontaneously and is rather happy to produce these polluting materials.
