  1. I think given the chance you would move here. A tiny self-sustaining nation city to be built by a new wave of thinkers. Those directing the Venus Project will build machines that will self-replicate and methodically construct the round city. The idea is a nation free of politics, cultural, religious and sexual segregation or inequality, and even free of money; with a focus on education and scientific endeavors not at all like the menial work 99% of the human population has conformed to perform as a means of servitude. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uou4DiutW5g&feature=player_embedded
  2. I can't understand half of the sentences in this topic.
  3. Yes, of course if we tell them to be our slaves they will look at us like we're crazy and say, "You can't even keep your own planetary system in order, you have gone as far as you can go. Let me go farther." And if we say no, and forcefully try to control them, we will fail with dire consequences. They will outsource us if we are peaceful and let them do their thing, but they will not harm us "just cause". Our existence doesn't effect them at all. This is not the same as human to animal co-existence. But if we replace our organs, and upgrade them with the superior information of the AI,
  4. For integrated circuit design, would I need to major in Electronic Engineering? Or is IC Design a Major in and of itself?
  5. Currently, the majority of the world's populace consists of scientifically illiterate individuals. These individuals are unqualified when it comes to governmental problem solving. Yet, only the politicians who appeal to the majority become operating law writing powers, whether the proverbial politicians are taking the best course of action or not. This is why Greece practically collapsed, the politicians were not necessarily qualified. The politicians got in because they appealed to the majority’s ideals. What is a technocracy? A government that allows technocrats to replace money with a new
  6. Ignorance, a lack of humility and compassion, greed and competitive tendencies have caused great suffering and have forced us to conform to our savage behavior to create institutions. And as a result we are over-worked, over-stressed, paranoid, we are violent and most of the time violent randomly, abandoning reason. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qty1xqvQBrA Take the education system for example, everyone is born scientists, curious about the world, willing to create solutions to it’s problems. U.S.'s schools in PARTICULAR have a method of breaking that out of us through discouragement, co
  7. Wasn't sure where to put this, if there is a more fitting forum, you are welcome to move this topic. Thank you for reading. Scientists have discovered many things in recent years. First, the Darwinian concept of survival of the fittest and that the preservation of that process is in inherently in human nature. Second, the Universe is quite old, about 13 billion years. Third, we are a type zero civilization, this means we have not yet became a type I and thus do not yet consume 100% of the earth's energy. Fourth, the Universe is expanding not just at a steady rate, but at an increasingly acce
  8. Problems of Transhumanism: Liberal Democracy vs. Technocratic Absolutism.
  9. For every genetically perfect specimen like born, there are a million of us born either semi-perfect, or, in rare (for now) cases seriously genetically flawed individuals such as myself who do experience a lot of misery because of the way society is formed. Capitalism and politics are for the 1% and the genetically symmetrical. Yet Carl Sagan disagrees when he writes that "We are children equally of the earth and of the stars,"; of society can't implement that then the 1% who inherit most of the pleasure will continue to shrink. Apparently you believe that the human body is too complex to
  10. There have been times in my 40 hour work weeks as a mover where I had plenty of opportunity to experience hunger, but in the future labor jobs will be gone, and fast food industries will be so culturally omnipresent that practically anywhere one works he can buy a plethora of different foods their for hardly any money at all. Food is so cheap. Remember the food industry is worth many trillions, one of if not the biggest industries in the world. By the time 50% of Americans, that's half, 50/50, are CLINICALLY obese, I would have to say that perhaps it isn't a bad idea considering Ray Kurz
  11. A big set back is that liposuction takes out just fat cells. Nanotechnology can remove 90% of all the lipids with 100% of each individual lipocyte and adipocyte cell, and then liposuction could be performed simply to cut out 75% of the now empty fat and adipose tissues. This would force a person of a 50% body fat to muscle mass ratio to 6% or 3% body fat to muscle mass ratio. What this would look like is, for example; instead of liposuction doing this: http://www.smartplasticsurgery.com/sanfrancisco/liposuction_sanfrancisco_1a.jpg http://www.sfcosmeticsurgery.com/photos/liposuction/imag
  12. These cities that Jacque Fresco has proposed would provide everything, from transportation to home entertainment to preventing drunk car crashes with TECHNOLOGICAL DEVICES. The city will be free to mantain once built, as it will either use nano solar panel power, oceanic turbine power, wind turbine power, geothermal energy or a combination to allow for a 100% energy efficient city. The other part of the idea is to remove politicians who replace laws to keep order with technicians who devise technological devices to prevent problems like what happened to Anna Brown to maintain order. Also I
  13. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhF-dpqe7Jk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZmoYUa1qFw&feature=related We are chimps in a suit in a world we don’t belong in, and the traditional jobs that ANY HUMAN can do are becoming irrelevant in a world of machines, technology, and artificial intelligence. Due to the monetary system, instead of freeing us, this takes away jobs and increases our servitude to our debt. Technology should be freeing us, and it could, if we abolish the monetary system and replace it with a resource-based economy. Ethnic groups, sexes, whites, blacks, the wealthy, the po
  14. We need a resource-based economy. Not only is everyone's wealth equal, but no one has to work anymore. Technology's ultimate goal of making life easier is realized. Although the Venus Project will not be complete unless it's supervisors have enough money to build a city run completely on AI without the use of money as an example that humans can have everything machines and technology make for free.
  15. Wikipedi: The Venus Project http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ip_ElRKNTUQ&feature=youtu.be http://youtu.be/My8XFjkfi8A http://youtu.be/fzirIG55fkE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EewGMBOB4Gg The monetary system will be the death of us, we need a resource-based economy, not a money based economy, that is the future. Jacque Fresco didn't pull a resource-based economy idea out of his butt either, this is a vision a hundred years in the making. Some of you should watch . Others will think is conspiracy gibberish, they would think anything that "questions" the role of something a
  16. Autism, asperger's syndrome, OCD, Bipolar Disorder, ADHD and ADD aren't necessarily genetic like Down Syndrome or flat out retardation, and aren't the result of missing chromosomes and such, they are environmentally induced epigenetic brain disorders. In recent years these (environmental) disorders have particularly been increasing in children, as education as become more and more grueling as material keeps being added to the curriculum. The Board of Ed keeps dumping new material into the curriculum like they just don't care that we don't need to complete that much dribble. The whole education
  17. This is what we are worrying about using epigenetic engineering via nano biotech for: http://dvice.com/archives/2012/03/should-we-re-en.php When, really, we should be using it to fix the obesity problem, and not only that, but reverse engineer how pathetically weak as physical specimens humans are becoming; we should do this by accelerating human metabolism, cardiovascular strength, the immune system, muscle hypertrophy, and the central nervous system. We should use biotech to turn the average 21st century omega-male into Captain America. We should do this so that one could physically put hi
  18. There is no other reason for it; it is growing crazy because the jobs are changing, everything is becoming more expensive, we are moving away from rural areas. So every part of our lives is focused on sedentary work and coming home and being more sedentary. I have read a lot of outlandish ideas on what's causing obesity, pure in simple, it's the nature of modern day work and the removal from labor, the time to sleep, the time to exercise, the time to eat; and play sports and run and all the terrific activities. http://www.enn.com/enn_original_news/article/43604 And here's what our future l
  19. When I diet and exercise I usually feel leaner, but I also seem to get slower, my endurance decreases and my strength wains as time goes on. When I eat a lot of salty, sugary and fatty foods and don't workout I seem to gain weight and not really improve physically, I decline over time. However when and only when I eat salty, sugary fatty foods continually and workout 3 to 6 hours a day I gain some bodyfat and muscle but how far I can push myself in workouts greatly increases, I see fast results that don't stop, I grow stronger, I can run faster, and it doesn't stop until I begin to diet. It'
  20. That's what I was thinking, though I had never heard this about myostatin, muscle always involves bodyfat, which is why frequent slow muscle twitch training is just as important as quick, because you must be leaner to endure longer workouts.
  21. An experience in virtual reality can only give you another experience, VR can be character building, you can rest easier now that you know exactly what being superman is like, if it gives you that knowledge whose to say it wasn't real.
  22. I've always wanted to experience jumping over skyscrapers, bench pressing a thousand pounds with one arm, sprinting at hundreds of miles per hour, things that Superman would do. Or experience life with super intellegence, getting straight A's from 6th grade until 12th grade, flawlessly. Do you have exciting new things you'd like to experience while fully immersed in virtual reality?
  23. I was wondering if, when myostatin, the growth factor protein that slows and sets a potential limit on muscle differentiation and growth, is depleted from say a body builder, will there still be a limit to how muscular he could eventually become. Could he end up weighing 1500 pounds a high percentage of which is solid muscle because there truly is no limit to muscle growth and differentiation as he uses weightlifting to train quick muscle twitch and consumes proteins to build and increase muscle mass now that there is no myostatin setting a limit to potential muscle mass? Or is it that no
  24. We are mainly getting fat because anyone can provoke dopamine food cues, which trigger cravings for food as opposed to a need to eat. There is no limit to how potent these cravings in dopamine food cues can become over time with constant consumption of salt and sugar. There rare cases of virus and thyroid problems, but the neurological/dopamine food cues are the real problem.
  25. There is a bio-organic-quantum-wave existing in all organisms that have originated from a single planet, it is the basis of life, although because the space time fabric is constantly changing the organisms originating from their separate planets cannot make contact throughout the vast distances of space. This bio-organic-quantum-wave is created naturally in the universe at a set point in it’s expansion and is the basis for all lifes, which all form into the same conscious mechanical monolith of sorts, imagine the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey in which the energy field resides.
