Except the culture, which is the POINT.

Blood/DNA is already going the way of the dodo, because fractions never increase. Dividing by two offers a number smaller, or equal to, the largest one that you had: as a BEST case.

So here's the deal: if you hold on to blood, you're DONE. It's the only logical conclusion, unless your plan is to exist in forlorn pockets of isolationist existence with inter-bred families and kids featuring three heads. Even that, at best, gets you 100 years.

Or, you can accept that -- as a species -- humans are generally the same and it is what you act/perceive/do (culture!) that defines us. With that, you empower us to live, evolve, grow and continue as what we are.

Blood quantum is a bad, bad deal, man. Don't fall for it. Don't "take the cheese" and get caught in the trap.
