Formerly "I Would Like To Propose Something ..."
Welcome ladies and jellybeans. My name isn't Jim, but for the sake of it, you can call me that. This thread is dedicated to my (and later on, my team)'s work on a technology I'm dubbing DiveTech. Formerly it was named FullDive but after some extensive researching I have discovered that name is currently under copyright for another company, so I have renamed it. Any posts in this thread mentioning "DiveTech", "FullDive", or "Diving" are almost certainly relating to this technology.
DiveTech is the state of bringing the human conscious mind into a computer, a true 'virtual reality'. The next step forward in low level organic/synthetic integration. It is most likely a non-invasive, wireless technology that is transmitted using the cumulative power of EEG and Microwave technology, with some very clever coding and upgrades thrown in. This technology is destined to exist in the next 10 - 20 years, and I have been working extensively over the last 2 years (at the time of writing this message, July 2015) to bring it to a reality.
The initial versions of this tech are going to be based around medical advancements. Bringing the consciousness into a computer has its benefits, that of being able to 'switch off' various neurological paths. For example, if a patient is in severe pain, you can simply 'turn off' the pain reception to their body. It won't necessarily allow their body to be any less stressed, but it will reduce the mental and psychological harm to the patient. It is well documented that a lot of medical issues are mentally related, and can be treated with great success by reducing psychological taxing on the patient. Think sugar pills curing a headache. Similar sort of thing, except the pill is an expensive machine, and it's certainly not made of sugar.
INFORMATION AND UPDATES ABOUT DIVETECH WILL BE VAGUE AND INFORMATION WILL BE LIMITED FOR LEGAL AND LOGICAL SAKE.
As I have stated a few times in various posts, legality, unfortunately, plays a major role in creating a new technology. I am taking a MASSIVE risk in posting ANYTHING to do with it on a public forum such as this. I want it noted here and now that if this technology exists by anyone other than me, it is as a result of their own work unless I have otherwise said. Untill the legal proceedings are set out fully, enough information to create the tech will not be supplied.
I don't like it as much as you don't, but I feel there is nothing I can do about it. I can't take the risk. If life were fair, I would spend this entire post telling you every single detail about how I've modified current technology to being to create this system, but I simply cannot or risk my life's ambition going to waste. I beg for your understanding. <3
THIS TECHNOLOGY, MY NAME, AND MY TEAM ARE NOT CURRENTLY AFFILIATED (at time of writing, July 2015) WITH SCIENCEFORUMS.COM. THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL WEBSITE TEAM.
This is my own team, currently only existing of me. If scienceforums wishes to become the official sponsor/mascot/website in which I work with (not sure what to call them in that sense), I am only more than happy to do so, however currently I have no spoken to the owner/admin of the website, and have no drawn any legal points with him/her. I am simply posting here because... well I don't really have a good reason. This community is the best I've seen thus far, and you havn't immediately killed me for saying and claiming to be working on something so outlandish.
Most of you have good, honest, open minds, and are intelligent enough to realise I haven't created this yet, it is *IN DEVELOPMENT*. And I promise the final product will be thanks to every single one of you that has contributed even minutely. I cannot promise it will be officially recognised, but I can promise I'll try my damndest to make sure it is, even if it's as simple as a link to this forumsite on an official release or some such. I have no idea. I can't predict the future.... yet.
A Little Bit About Myself:
As I said my name isn't Jim, and until such times as I have to publiclly announce my name, it will remain Jim. I'm an Australian, been a nerd ever since I was born (4 year olds can write C on PowerMacs, dontchano), and have developed a recent passion for anime. Sword Art Online carried further into my heart than it should have, for two very good reasons.
1: As you can probably guess, is the medical side. I have been in and out of hospitals all my life, not as a result of my own sickness, but as a result of someone very close to me. Watching someone you love in pain and knowing you can do nothing to ease it is the most unbearable sight I have ever had to face, and I've been facing it for 15 years (at the time of writing). Emotionally, physically, and mentally, it is draining and taxing on even the strongest and most powerful of individuals. If I could have just had this tech then. If I could have cured her pain.. life would be a lot different, for both of us.
2: Kirito. He is a legend. I'm not, but I am a 'solo player'. Whenever trouble faces me, I take it by the horns myself. I have fought adversities for years, and have never had backup. Not for the will of not wanting it, but for the will of not being able to recieve it. I learned easily, when I was very young, that if you need something done, to do it yourself. As a result I grew far more attached to Kirito's character then was likely expected of A-1 Pictures. I do not care, however. I love that show, more than I love many things. I love what it symbolises and I love the portrayal of an advanced society. One I wish to bring true. A castle in the sky. Just... you know. Without the infinite murderous possibilities. Don't worry, I already have that covered
I'm sorry for the 'sob story' rant. I expect many of you to immediately dislike me for daring to post my past adversities on the internet, frankly I'm ashamed of it as well. That, combined with the 'he's an attention whore chasing self pity' I'm bound to begin some flame wars. However if I'm going to commit to this, I should at least give the full story of the who's, why's, and how's. As much as I can do without getting flaming vodka bottles thrown through my windows. The least I can do is lay down the truth, and allow you all to draw your own conclusions, or insult each other as is fashionable these days.
Not sure what to put here just yet, will update soon.
