You may not have a choice in the matter, despite being against this. I think in the end you will die if you don't, those will be your choices death or augmentation, the only choice for everyone.

You may be right. I will take death of my body. They can't have my spirit or soul.

I'd definitely choose augmentation. I don't believe in this 'soul' sh*t, I'm not religious at all. They can make all the improvements they want. The fact is, we'll never be able to survive long term in space if we don't make changes to ourselves, so why put a limit on what we can do? so f**k it, go all the way I say.

There are no cavemen walking around today and I don't see why there would be earthlings travelling around deep space.
It's just evolution to me.

You don't need to be religious to know you have a soul. I am anti religion and still know we have some kind of energy that lasts forever. Whatever you want to call it or at least a consciousness that always exists.

Don't believe in ghosts either.

Ghosts are spirits that come into manifestation in ectoplasmic form. They are spirits trapped between dimensions - usually third and foruth dimension. As with all things - ghosts have their own frequency signatures.

 

They communicate telepathically - in though form. Anyone who has opened their gifts of clairaudience and clairvoyance can communicate with them. Ghosts can also communicate through tools like - ouija boards and other forms of mediumships.

 

Ghosts usualy come to communicate - not torment the people they come to visit. Poltergeists on the other hand enjoy mischief and can get violent.

 

Ectoplasm is the substance that enables spirits to manifest physically to some degree. Sometimes the ectoplasmic energies can be seen - and other times photographed. Ectoplasm is not solid in consistency - it is more like a 'haze' in density! When photographed a true spirit will appear as circular rings of energy.

What do you think Ectoplasm or ectoplasmic energy is ?

That is a very good question. That sounds like something to dive in a little further and investigate more. Off the top of my head I would think it is the energy of that spirit that can not fully manifest into this physical dimension.

I was thinking more along the line of ghost busters :) 

 

Looking in the dictionary 

 

  1. 1.
    DATEDBIOLOGY
    the more viscous, clear outer layer of the cytoplasm in amoeboid cells.
     
  2. 2.
    a supernatural viscous substance that supposedly exudes from the body of a medium during a spiritualistic trance and forms the material for the manifestation of spirits.

 

 

I am guessing you will go with 2 :) 

 

So looking up what a medium is https://en.wikipedia...wiki/Mediumship "Mediumship gained popularity during the nineteenth century, when ouija boards were used by the upper classes as a source of entertainment. Investigations during this period revealed widespread fraud—with some practitioners employing techniques used by stage magicians—and the practice began to lose credibility.[3][4] Fraud is still rife in the medium/psychic industry, with cases of deception and trickery being discovered to this day.[5]"

Augmentation of humanity may be in the future if everything doesn't collapse before it can happen.  As for the use of the concept of "perfect", that is a very subjective concept.

It is on Ghostbusters that is for sure. and same thing I thought. Since you like Wikipedia this is what they say.

 

https://en.wikipedia...sm_(paranormal)

 

The idea of ectoplasm was merged into the notion of an "ectenic force" by some early psychical researchers who were seeking a physical explanation for reports of psychokinesis in séances.[14] Its existence was initially hypothesized by Count Agenor de Gasparin, to explain the phenomena of table turning and tapping during séances. Ectenic force was named by de Gasparin's colleague M. Thury, a professor of natural history at the Academy of Geneva. Between them, de Gasparin and Thury conducted a number of experiments in ectenic force, and claimed some success. Their work was not independently verified.[15][16]

Other psychical researchers who studied mediumship speculated that within the human body an unidentified fluid termed the "psychode", "psychic force" or "ecteneic force" existed and was capable of being released to influence matter.[17][18] This view was held by Camille Flammarion[19] and William Crookes, however a later psychical researcher Hereward Carrington pointed out that the fluid was hypothetical and has never been discovered.[20]

The psychical investigator W. J. Crawford (1881–1920) had claimed that a fluid substance was responsible for levitation of objects after witnessing the medium Kathleen Goligher. Crawford, after witnessing a number of her séances, claimed to have obtained flashlight photographs of the substance; he later described the substance as "plasma". He claimed the substance is not visible to the naked eye but can be felt by the body.[21]

The physicist and psychical researcher Edmund Edward Fournier d'Albe later investigated the medium Kathleen Goligher at many sittings and arrived at the opposite conclusions to Crawford; according to D'Albe, no paranormal phenomena such as levitation had occurred with Goligher and stated he had found evidence of fraud. D'Albe claimed the substance in the photographs of Crawford was ordinary muslin.[22][23] During a séance D'Albe had observed white muslin between Goligher's feet.[24]

Ah Ah the Ghost Busters ectoplasm is just special effects/magic tricks, just like what mediums or magicians use who earn a living from the gullible. Harmless fun maybe? A bit of escapism perhaps ? 

 

Just how many more beliefs can be ascribed to be tricks by magicians or dreams/hallucinations/narcosis. Remote viewing perhaps, how many more ?

Denovian man was around before Neanderthal. The aboriginals of Australia have a pretty high level of denovian dna. And if you are of northern european heritage you will have upto about 6% neanderthal in your genes.
