I am 100% sure that we are capable of building ouselves a Star Trek TNG future.
However, I think what will really happen is a Warhammer 40k future. And that's my optimistic opinion, I look forward to it because it will be fascinating.

Personally, I think it will be periods of ST:TNG interspersed with periods of WH40K, with occasional flashes into moments of Ian Bank's Culture like ascendance (and perhaps occasional genuine desolation and apocalypse.)

Anywho, the present idea of the US Space Corps is garbage and must be destroyed. Is the militarization of space inevitable? Yes. Do we want to delay it as long as possible, especially considering volatile global geopolitics? Abso-fucking-lutely. Do we want the present US Administration and military-industrial complex to be remembered in time immemorial as responsible for its formation? ABSOLUTELY NO WAY OMGWTFBBQSHITNIGGERWHATREUDOING?

Besides, if it were as presently proposed and you got in, most likely you would spend 99% of your time hacking satellites and/or preventing satellite hacking from a computer chair in the back of some air force base. Not very starfleet. NASA will still be NASA, and perhaps more crucially, SpaceX will still be SpaceX (et. al) is you want to really have the faith of the heart, and go where your heart can take you.

No that's cyber division. Also new branch of armed forces. Only their guns are called 1337 h4ck2.

Also it's my understanding the military side will get more ships in orbit and maybe a Moon base. NASA hasn't put ships in orbit for a while. Talking conventional style manned craft that isn't a crapsule. If NASA rides with the mil-space they an keep exploring while mil-space provides expansion.

Space X can keep diggign tunnels or landing old tech rockets and virgin galactic can drive up the civies but those private programs will never ever get this species off this rock that task is too great. They can just service the regular jack offs and yes rich ass wipes are regular jack off in space because they are so stupid death is almost certain.

Russia and the US have the same tier of rocket technology, but they have different rocket equipment. The same technology =/= the same equipment. A toyota and a hyundai are the same technology, but not the same equipment, but I guess if I said the police drive the same technology cars you would go LOL IS A TOYOTA THE SAME THING AS A HYUNDAI CHECKMATE. As soon as you find something that you can go hurr durp over, even if it's obviously not true if you had half a brain cell, you start whining about it. Have you seriously been arguing with me for two weeks in bad faith just so you can make shitty snide comments in a thread no one else is reading? (except maybe Thermoptic?)

Just fuck off man, alright? The police do have secret drones no one else has, or something. There's no evidence of it, and it's not true, and you argue like a fucking twelve year old, but I'll say it if it will get you to shut up. "Yes, the police have magical flying robot dog drones that will hunt us all down in the 2020 automation riots and we uneducated rubes will never be able to own real robot technology, only almighty police god"

Daily mail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4354612/Architect-unveils-skyscraper-hangs-asteroid.htm

lThat really IS a high rise: Sci-fi plan to hang a wandering skyscraper from asteroid orbiting Earth is unveiled Radical skyscraper design from a New York City firm will be built from the sky down, instead of the ground up
Analemma Tower is set to be suspended from an orbiting asteroid 31,068 miles (50,000 km) above the Earth
Tower will move in a figure eight pattern between the northern and southern hemispheres each day
Solar panels will generate power and water will be collected from cloud condensation and rain water
Building will be broken up into sections, such as business, worship, dining, shopping and entertainment

A New York architecture firm has unveiled designs for a skyscraper that is out of this world.

Deemed the ‘world’s tallest building ever’, Analemma Tower will be suspended from an orbiting asteroid 31,068 miles (50,000 km) above the Earth– and the only way to leave is by parachute.

The orbital path would swing the tower in a figure eight pattern between the northern and southern hemispheres each day, taking residents on a tour through different parts of the world - all in just a 24 hour orbital cycle.

This is so not actually happening. Architectural firms release outlandish plans all the time as publicity stunts, even if the plan is for something patently impossible. This one is particularly poorly done, the photoshop work looks like it was done by a high-school kid.

Building this skyscraper would probably be the biggest engineering feat in the history of the world, and since it includes neither a plan for getting the materials into orbit successfully, nor developed a new material that would be able to meet the tensile requirements of the tether (no such material or even a material close to being strong enough exists) then all this counts for is as a (very transparent) publicity stunt.

https://www.gofundme.com/churchoftranshumanism

So some people have decided it's necessary to start a church for transhumanism. They make their point as to why a "church" in the article, and I'll have to ponder how I feel about it and talk about that later. They show a lot of examples of things that hurt the progress of transhumanism in this article though and that's what I'm mostly interested in. If I have to be part of a generation that had to spend all its time fighting just for the right to practice transhumanism while the NEXT generation or later gets to reap the rewards of transhumanism because of that blocked progress and wasted time, I'm going to be so fucking livid.

Thoughts?

I used to think like that as well, but I'm beginning to feel like the risk of augmentation bring suppressed is a bit overstated. Here's why, IMO:

  1. Augmentation is likely to be adopted by politicians and the wealthy if augmentation can offer them tangible benefits in the rat race, creating incentives for keeping it legal.
  2. The rest of the population would feel a pressure to emulate the wealthy and successful, creating a normative acceptance of augmentation.
  3. Convenient and accessible/affordable augmentation will probably be adopted anyway, since convenience is always a crowd-pleaser.
  4. The religious right is progressively losing influence all over the board.
  5. Augmentation used for medical treatment will soften the blow and increase acceptance.
  6. Economically, you could always make the point that widespread augmentation would increase overall productivity.
  7. The militaries of the world would probably want to utilize it if they find the technology useful (debatable, but still).

Intel is already working on a brain implant for web-browsing and smart lenses are already in development IIRC. I think the future is closer than it looks, tbh fam.

Why is it that everyone who references the laws of robotics has never actually read what happens in Asimov's stories. Like that's literally what happens! Except Daneel the 'I' in I, Robot for those unfamiliar is a good guy and uses the loop hole to determine what to do in situations where not harming one human causes harm to many other humans, which was an intractable problem in robot design before.

(And then from this he decides to create a 100,000 year pan-galactic project to guide humanity into a superior form by engineering the ethical code which the laws of robots embodies into humans, who of course do not follow their own ethics and thus become a flaw in the system...) anyway, seriously, actually look to the sources, they contain the answers to the questions the commonly known aspects of them pose.

I would attack the aspect that automatically assumes that all super-sapient AIs would be sociopathic murderers, but it's such an old saw, what's the point?

so lets collaborate

considering where we are now with technology how do you think we could even get into space and survive life living and evolving?

what do we need to do here biologically? as in modification

molecular robots, quantum computing...

considering they are robots they could make them smaller... and the possibilities of medical science plus others

myself i've considered this, its been a fascination of mine for some time

so this is what i've been thinking

obviously we can destroy protiens now without chemical intrusion so we should even be able to get rid of viruses

pretty sure you're right on with the machines giving viruses but at the same time having a computer that is here to be able to connect to is almost needed but at the same time physical keys would be easier ways to prevent data manipulation from unwanted outside sources

plus being able to go from a thought pattern to a motion based control system is better considering the deliberate control...

also i imagine that connecting to the internet via the mind could be interesting since you could privatize your imagination with another person meaning you could have private conversation via telepathy almost... its interesting cause first i think
sex
cause of all the other things you could use to keep "shut ins" connected - like sex toys that stimulate through thought actions or whatever... plus games will be interesting in the mind but because of the whole speed ratio they might be quicker

but with this i think a lot of interesting things with the matrix will arise

like it is you would almost insist on having sub matrixes like "alternate" dimensions if you could have multiple Internets you'd almost would think about it, connecting them like second life

so many interesting things

Having a physical control doesn't necessarily make you safer, it just gives you an additional very particular weakness. Pic related, TSA master keys seemed like a pretty fool proof security scheme until someone was able to take a picture of one and reverse engineer the entire set...

And yeah, once we have mind machine interfaces, we will definitely use them to link up our minds, engage in VR, and really we already have multiple sub-layers of the internet, that's what the Dark Web is.

As for the efficiency of solar power -- yes, solar power would be sufficient for any application if we get the conversion percentage high enough. If we could convert the energy of the sun that hits the earth to electricity 100%, it would dwarf our needs. The current power output of our entire civilization is only 12 Terawatts per year. 83,600 Terawatts of sunlight hit the ground each DAY.

I feel as though once the barrier of traveling into space more easily and more often is pushed that's where you'll start to see sources for new materials. New materials, new discoveries that's what will push the science forward.

I imagine that space travel can be the thing that causes the next big jump forward in technology. Between that and nanomachines we could really see a change in what the idea of a humans life is like. It's easy to make a few jumps and you've got basically cybernetically enhanced human beings traveling among the stars.

The scariest thing about nanomachines is that there most likely are going to be some major vulnerabilities to them. I can picture them being the target of malicious people. Or even breaking down.I also picture the military making major use of them. I really do wonder if anything is going to push mankind forward, war is often the motive. And space travel doesn't really meet military goals. As easy as it is to dream, I wonder how realistic it all is.

obviously they are out there

so with this in mind if an alien species was revealed walking how many laws would change and what would happen around the globe

my thoughts is that religions would stop existing
i've even been trying personally to get rid of certain religions... making a diagram and a book - mainly its just to say that we can believe in whatever it is you want but why make books... worship freely believe what you want...
science has been revealing a lot of things which contradicts a lot of beliefs.. however once the truth is revealed i think that a lot of religions will collapse
myself i've been studying theology and whatnot for a while.. but after the thought of aliens i take this book a dictionary of demons and consider them together...
the Jedi way / the force is a true thing.. Buddhism wins imo

laws would change - can't see why certain drugs are banned, i doubt they know they just do without consideration...
politics would change and collapse

i bet we would change as a whole globally... we would see peace and progress

i don't know about you but i understand technology and science to be finite discovery of the universe as well
finite
but as any one would, while on ayahuasca, i saw a 12 dimensional being (as seen by me)... it was a grasp of knowledge that was sorta like "i am the alpha and omega.. i see the begining and end..." no word was given but i saw that this being, neither man nor woman, saw time as 1 thing... like if you say alpha and consider the begining and omega.. then it was one piece the entire thing saw as a single bit of information.

i reach out to it but i don't think it has interest really..

but then you have to wonder, as i considered the alpha and omega and saw it as a human would have, then i considered that if i could see what was coming i could change it.. this is to say that if another could see it, they could to... and then we would against eachother in a mass...

"life is easy its the other person that makes it hard" quote a random bar patron

so in that sense if this was something then i would wonder myself as that being could see the entire scope as if looking at it as one piece but we see it as many different... would that mean that every attempt to change the future would be already done as it is

then we are already on a straight path of change that even if we try it was seen before and we are destined

fate and destiny... the illusion of choice

philosophy should never be used to find the secretes of the universe. It should be used to think about what we have already been able to observe through experimentation. A drug trip is not going to give you any answers besides the ones you want to hear. Our perspective is so tiny and you don't gotta smoke weed to know that it just helps you get there faster. The amount of space we have observed is nothing, and yet a drug trip is going to allow this minimalistic window we have so far to just pour the answers on us? No. by all means trip out all you want it's awesome. But learn things that are fucking dank before hand and focus on it while you trip. Like some of these things.

Through technology and research humanity can
>mix basic chemecals and explose to a light sorce to creat amino acids that eventually become multi celled life forms.
>manipulate DNA and RNA
>Replace body parts with mechanical ones. Theoretically you could replace all by the brain and be good to go.
>AI is breaking through the wall too. The debate is still on about if it has achieved sentience or not.

There is much more than what I listed but the future is now basically.
Phillosophically there are still many things that need to be asked about the ethics of what we change. The kind of power Humanity is about to claim could have far reaching consequences beyond the limits of this world. Take this webms for example, a small change created a new balance, and it wasn't even a technical change.

Fears of futuristic North Korea drone wars sparks South to invest in electromagnetic pulse weapons
Kim Jong-un is believed to have developed an army of over 310 unmanned military drones worrying his enemies across the border
North Korea is building a hi-tech army of hundreds of killer drones sparking fears of a Star Wars-style attack on the South.

Kim Jong-un has already developed over 310 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), many armed with machine guns, radar and long-range weapons, according to South Korea military advisors.

And the despot vowed on national TV today to invest in more durable remote control craft than can fly for longer distances and carry heavier machinery.

In response, government officials in the South have asked scientists to create new electromagnetic pulse (EMP) devices to disable and bring the drones down.

An EMP is a powerful burst of particles used to disable electronics and was used in the Star Wars: Clone Wars series as a method of killing fictional droids.

Are you as sick as I am of politicians not caring about the real issues? Left and right, moderate or extreme, they all are obsessed with things that don't matter. Race, sex, jobs, immigration, war. None of it fucking matters if I am going to die soon. No one is even talking about technology, no one talks about science or automation. The governments don't understand the internet at all, they just know it's important. Sure they'll drop a billion on a Human Brain Project every once in a while, but they spend untold billions on office slaves and other boondoggles.

There was a fringe transhumanist candidate for president in the United States last year. His name was Zoltan Istvan and he got no attention because he was not extreme enough. If we don't pull ourselves out of this apathy we are all going to die. There is a war going on right now, and it is not in whatever middle-eastern country is on the television news this week. The war is between those of us who want to live and those who want us all to die. This is the final war, against death itself. We need to rise up as one group. Whatever you call yourself, transhumanist, posthumanist, futurist, whatever, we need to seize power as fast as possible. If we do not take control of the world's governments, particularly the United States, and funnel all money into developing and distributing life extension and uploading technology then we are all going to die. Let me repeat that: if we do not seize power soon then we are all going to die.

We cannot allow ourselves to be lazy. We cannot hope someone else will do this for us. What if someone else does these things and doesn't want to share? What if Facebook wants to upload you in exchange for raping your mind for all eternity. We cannot allow these things to happen. We cannot allow our own apathy and the incredulity of others to slow us down. This is life and death.

Anyone who stands in our way must die. They want to anyway, if they are trying to stop us. Anyone who wants to live is going to support this completely. It's okay if you are scientifically and mathematically illiterate right now. It's okay if you can't code. But you need to learn. It d…

It's a nice sentiment, but let's think about this logically for a sec. Zoltan Istvan didn't lose because he didn't harp loudly enough about the current existential peril or technology's promise to save us all. He didn't win because he wasn't a member of one of the political parties that was inevitably going to win.

All governments and nation states are presently dependent on technocracy to a certain extent and won't do much to slow them down.

However, turning transhumanism, an intellectual and philosophical movement in a completely political one and raging on about how we are going to seize the power of government to institute our cyborg utopia is a great way to get us all rounded up and gassed. All that shit you're talking about is going to happen if and only if we can keep our cool about it until it's so far along that The Powers That Be and the great unthinking mass of useful idiots can do nothing to stop it once they realize what the actual endgame is.

what society is feeling is simply the beginning of growing pains that automation is bringing. People are slowly being taken from work not only by cheap labor practices but also machinery, AI is also seeing breakthroughs that would make routine administration jobs obsolete. There is tension between people who frantically want to work because that's the only way a lving has been maintained in civilized nations for centuries now, while the other side wishes to live a life of chilling and working some times when they feel like it but this cannot be the reality just yet.
Normal people however do not understand this and so look elsewhere for the answer, often resulting in pissed of government leaders squabbling over stupid irrelevant things, often sending media outlets into frenzied bursts of autism meant to convince you to fear some thing because it's literally Hitler or some thing.

/FTL/ knows our future is bright so long as we do not destroy our selves or go crazy with the spy shit. Hard times will come but after as technology advances and more of the world is united under fewer banners perhaps our true power will become apparent.
