Imagine the human race so dependant on a A.I, that the A.I is responsible for the reproduction of new people, which it grows in labs. For thousands of years, it spreads people all over the whole universe, all by itself. People have no idea of what is going on and has long ago lost their language.... Yet simultaneously live in absolute luxury. They are like barbarians except there is no reason to fight over anything because there is limitless supply of it.

soorrry babe but my main jew goertzel is absolutely right about getting to agi fastest- which is by seeding a metric shit ton of self organizing dynamics and letting some monster arise out the chaos. But I do think the singularity is a stupid idea, mainly because there's going to be some fundamental, mathematical limit to whatever the hell these utopians think is going to happen

So, if you're into futurism you should check out this website: it's called Orion's Arm, and it's a collaborative sci-fi future history of the next 10,000 years, plus some millenia. It's organized like an encyclopedia and a timeline, with linking and interrelated articles.

http://orionsarm.com

Let's discuss this fucking awesome and badass setting, and all of the futuristic ideas and concepts they talk about in OA.

I'll start off the thread with a few of my favorite articles:

Sentients Overview (http://www.orionsarm.com/eg-article/4802ba24e7401) This lists all the known types of entities, both natural and created by transhumanity. This really should be your first stop to understanding the super amazing variety and novelty in this setting

The Sundering (Previously known as the Nanodisaster) (http://www.orionsarm.com/eg-topic/45b2b27e35ae4) Matter dissassembler nanobots swarmed over the Earth, and into space, devouring everything in their path. A Technopocalypse.

Dyson Trees (http://www.orionsarm.com/eg-article/48472ab83cce0) Gengineered radial trees grown out of an asteroid "seed" and used as habitats in space, hollow branches.

Mega-Mecha (http://www.orionsarm.com/eg-article/5306447303bcd) giant mecha used as habitats.

Let's make a bet-- on America. C'mon you over-opinionated sons of bitches, what do you think of America long term? Is it a dying beast? A temporarily disgraced giant? A lion brave enough to face it's enemies? A increasingly focused paragon of traditionalism and truth? What do you think of America 5-10 years down the line? There's so much bullshit going on, it's hard for anyone to say and frankly everyone has got a different view. So what's yours? I really don't want this to become a troll thread, if so I'd rather see it deleted honestly. But this question is an interesting one I think and fear of trolls shouldn't stop discussion

I mean like it's gonna grow up to be a contrarian towards everything. I experience it all the time when trying to talk about futurism with people. It's alwas "that's fucking crazy" and "that's takinging the humanity out of everything" so the future of america is probably a constant dystopian civil war or some sort of cold civil war with more than just two factions.

It's a perpetual teenager yelling at the olser generation abd the authority figures constantly getting worse, too.

I would love to see america's fall, either getting invaded/nuked by china or simply getting eaten from the inside by civil war. If karma is real then america should be the next 3rd world country getting raped and stripped of resources by other countries for hundreds of years. Women would be sold in the sex traffic industry around the world while the american men would mow lawns in mexican upper class neighborhoods.

Personally I wouldn't be surprised if there is a civil war in the future with how heated everything is getting. People tell me there isn't much chance of this happening and it would be rather hard with the current landscape... but jesus it feels like there an increasing number of violent angry assholes who want it, regardless.

I realize that theres a good chance this will be nothing more than a bunch of angry radicals fighting each other at protests and events, but I look at people who I've known in my life, and I've seen how they went from decent people to downright nasty people as politics took more precedence in their lives. I think groups like the people at Fox News want to radicalize and control people this way, they definitely changed my mother, at times I don't recognize her anymore.

It feels like anger is getting more prevalent, and people see people on opposing sides as less human as time goes on. it wont happen in 2018, hell it might not happen in 2020, but if things stay the way they are, theres a good chance it will happen in the next 10 years.

So some people, including Neil Harbisson, have founded this company focused on adding senses to the human body. I mean, to me I'd still say it's only extensions of our current senses, but still, this is a thing now.

So far they only have one product, which is some shit attatched to your chest that vibrates when you're facing north, and it's kinda pricy.

How will currency change in the future, or will it stay the same? Will we be buying our soycaf with cold hard fiat dollars, bitcoins, labor vouchers, bottle caps, or something entirely different?

My favorite idea for future currency is TIME! All the work will be as valuable, and with the smart watches and -glasses and -boxers we can automatize the measure system so that everyone's working hours are counted laser sharp. Then you simply trade your work time to someone elses time in the form of goods.

Nanoblades were one of the the first technologies humans invented; the obsidian knife, a more primitive kind of knife even than the stone hand axe, has a blade about 3 nanometers thick. Recently (like the 1950s), we've invented diamond versions of these that do not dull quite as quickly, but it's still basically the same thing.

So something that cuts with a blade the size of a subatomic molecule, instead of a single molecule?

I guess that would be a photon knife i.e. a laser. Good luck pinning one of the fuckers down though.

We already have pretty advanced cutting technology, but it's mostly only useful in industry. Nano and smaller blades as weaponry are pretty much useless currently (until we find a way to make something like a laser rifle more effective than a firearm.) So to answer the question of when...probably around the time we get desktop (and therefore backpack) fusion -- or some great advance in battery technology, like two orders of magnitude greater storage capacity...<~50 years I'd guess?

I remember just within last year that kirt would always reply to my posts for whatever reason. I wouldn't even target him and he would just respond to my shit all the time like gangstalking lol.

I still firmly believe that my posting, namely in the months after Fallout 4's release had a large part in making Kirt stop posting as much to the regular boards. I'll gladly take my self-appointed achievement. Although it was fun fucking with him though.

Sure they are cool and fhey are for more than just tv
But who wants shit that beams shit
I beelieve our colony would do well with power plant data towers strategically placed along the map which allows uss to clear the top and give to the bottom
As they ahave mulriple things...
In the unlikely event we needed to cast illusion technology could be implemeted at the top bar to give a function and even loose net of camouflage and even shielding

I high rise of tiers at the bottom could give new hold to crops and other non machine resources... with the ability to control lighting air pollution and other things the seqer can be re fitted to allow the most efficient reuse with our top layer eventually secure and fastened for full coverage we can also manipulate air and lgighting for maximum pollution
