With advanced bioengineering I'd like to see humans who photosynthesize. Trees only collect a few 100 calories a day from the sun, so we'd have to improve on nature's design to power a human. But the idea of spending a good part of the day dreaming in the sun while my body powers up is very appealing. Perhaps we could merge photosynthesis with sleep?

    One of many possible direction for people to pursue Alislaws. Racism as we know it today should slowly dissolve as we diverge more. It's harder to have a concept of artificial superiority when you're no longer the most intelligent being around and or there are massively neurodivergent people in society.

    I quite like the idea of racists running around trying to get people to sign up to genetic testing so they can try and figure out who to hate.

    Amen, but I'm pessimistic in how society would change consumerist behavior. It's all going to hit a head someday, and our generation will probably be the world leaders when it does. Or maybe our artificial overlords.

The more I think about it the more I realize how much nearly every country is just a U.S puppet state due to how much the U.S controls the flow of capital. The territory called the U.S is just the capital province with most other parts of the world being exploited colony or favored province.

    That is why I said it was Postmodernism 2.0. I should have said what I meant by that. What I meant was that it is an improved version of the philosophy (restricted to epistemology and maybe some metaphysics), that philosophers of science take seriously; not that it's the next generation of attacks from the Postmodernists.

    That link Article end with "I think even Galileo would have agreed with that." , so even without criticisms from humanists (Postmodernists) , correctional criticism would arrive.

    philosophers of science advancement is part of the rest of sciense advancement

Does anyone have any updates on the samurai wasp population in the US? As of last year I know they were spotted in 10 states and reproduce at ~24x the speed of the brown marmorated stinkbug. The stinkbug swarms have been bad for over a decade and these little wasps are my heroes because they kill ~80% of the stinkbug eggs they infect.

There's a very sick irony that I'm now writing a recommendation letter for someone younger than me but can't afford college myself. The person I'm writing for is a high schooler who's been hosting a community open mic at the bookstore for a year now.

    You won't really need to learn a language to go to many European universities, a lot of them are English speaking. Learning the local language might help, but you could pick it up once you're there.

    That's true but it's still highly recommended because at most European unis I've noticed that even if the classes I have to take for my major I'm accepted for are in English, not all of the unrelated electives I could decide to take are. You're right though, I should just bite the bullet and go for it.
