except the machines don't actually do anything. That's whats so ironic. The non-transhumanists would have to strike before the trans-humanists actually merged or built these artilects.

 

In other words we dont ever reach a singularity or build AI because the rest of the world thinks its too dangerous, and therefore banns it or engages in a war of elimination in order to save humanity.


The art of forgetting is inherent in human minds; the art of being forgotten  is the normal fate of knowing. We as futurists don't accept that. In the panels of the Universe, we alone will remain standing; remain unforgotten.

Greatest fears for the future: 1. Not living to see it 2. The period between relative abundance and post-scarcity.

If something I say sounds like trolling/being stupid/offensive, please forgive me. I'm bad with people.

The decline/extinction of so many different animal species and their habits.

One big fear I have is the delayed progression in research of the fields necessary to develop brain computer interfaces and eventually brain data transfer. I really don't want 50 years from now to have the same progression speed we've had within the past 10 years. I'm worried about if I'm going to die before I can see all the advancements in technology, and also live in it. I'm worried about if I'm not going to be able to afford the brain data transfer when it comes out. I'm worried about how much it's going to cost to go into space 100 years from now. I'm worried about how I'm going to defend myself in space by myself. And most of all, I'm worried about if the existence of everything we know is just a simulation brought on by another race, and that at any time they could pull the plug and end everything we know. That's why, when I'm in a computer, I'm going to live in a time speed trillions of times faster then real life, so that whenever our existence ends, it would have been so long I would have done everything imaginable.
