I was watchin  this movie last night and I thought of super-humans in the future. I didnt read the timeline for almost 6 months but I remeber that said that  at one point humans will have the capabilities of super-heros. When do you think this will be possible? and how we will achieve these capabilities? I am ready to become a super human at sometimes of my existence.

I think this has been covered already in various forms of our topics... human augmentation, dna manipulation, etc.

Yeah but how one can fly and break a train at the same time?

Hancock will be us in 200 years from now, more or less. :D

We'll have the ability of some superheros... like Captain America, Wolverine and villians like Toad.

Heroes like Cyclops, Hulk, The Human Torch, etc. won't happen without the aid of technology and won't be a result of their biological makeup.

I don't think we'll able to fly like this without anything. I think an Ironman suit could be possible in the long term. And of course we can do this and much more in full immersive virtual reality.

What about robotic mods?

 

I think by the 2080's some of the more extreme will get muscles replaced by robotic versions that greatly surpass human capability granting cheetah like speed and unreal strength. 

 

But Hancock or superman like ability requires cell to cell control of your body's energy which I don't see till 2200.

We'll definitely attain all manner of superpowers within 50 years from now.

 

 

 

Don't believe me?

 

Then, come and join me in virtual reality... :)

People have seriously thought about it and even claimed we are more probably living in a simulation than not.

 

It doesn't sit well with me though.  The science isn't clear enough for me and besides that I don't like to think that I'm just an AI.  That means we could be turned off at any time.


Hey.  Stop reading.  The post is over.

Well, the argumentation is quite easy, but I think in the end it's more a philosphic question. If we'll ever reach that state where everyone can easily set up a simulation like our world now, probably a certain percentage will do it. And even if the percentage is quite low, it will be probably a couple of millions. As the number of possible worlds increases, it's no unlikely that we are just one of them. For this case the probability that we are not in a simulation is something like 1 to a couple of million, so that's pretty low. The other scenario is we'll probably never reach that stage of a civilisation. I think you will probably need a matrioshka brain to run this kind of simulations.

in  virtual reality this will be achieved within  this century  ..i dont know when in a biological enviroment... in a way or another we will become super-men

Well that is for sure, the question is when will we reach the level that no one can distinguish between a virtual world and the real world.

Thats correct. My personal guess...around 2090 or early 22 st century.

That's really hard to predict I think because to date I can't really say how much computing power is needed for that. If we need a whole planet for this kind of computation it will take at least 200 years or more. If we can build it within a cluster of supercomputers on earth it could happen within this century.

I think we are still far from something like those videos.

 

Have you guys seen this?

People have seriously thought about it and even claimed we are more probably living in a simulation than not.

 

It doesn't sit well with me though.  The science isn't clear enough for me and besides that I don't like to think that I'm just an AI.  That means we could be turned off at any time.

 Maybe you are turned off every day and don't notice it because time is relative. Just like the idea that the guy on a platform sees a guy on a train moving by, and the guy on the train thinks he's sitting still and the guy on the platform moves by. You don't feel a change in time passage because your sense are within that timeframe but somebody outside of this simulation sees your program running... turns it all off right now. and then a week later starts the program again with you picking up right where you left off with no knowledge of a time gap between because it's outside your frame of referance, just like you can't see a fourth dimensional objects entire shape with your eyes.

 

on the idea of powers... I think it's more likely that in the real world we're not likely to see hancock style abilities. The movie Push is one that I just watched that does a better job at looking at how to power up a story with things we once thought, and occasionally still do, are within the realm of possible for amazing abilities. But until the time comes where we can become a brain case in a swarm of nanites or live in holographic reality we are unlikely to see much of anything.

 

Let me rephrase that, we won't see comic book or movie style things. I'm a strong believer that all of us have some talent or other that most of the people around us don't have and if we train and developed those talents we could amaze people with them and make a real difference in the world around us. But they aren't hollywood flash and bang. Nobody notices the talent of the person who recognises the signs of child abuse and drops an annonomous call to the authorities that end up putting the child in a foster home. Or that friend who knows the right thing to say to shake somebody out of the mind frame to hurt themselves, even if nobody knows that's what they were thinking of doing.

 

it's a more subtle power we all have.
