    Reality: The president and co-founder of the nonprofit think tank known as CFAR (“see-far”) is a woman, 32-year-old Julia Galef. I meet her at the group’s headquarters in hippie-ish Berkeley, Calif. She has a glint of Anne Hathaway looks about her and is nerdy, sure, but also warm, chatty. As Galef would say, I have erred, falling prey to what she calls the Straw Vulcan, the fallacy that rational people are unemotional people. In her words, it’s time to update.
