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.

Actually, there has long been alliance between transsexuals and transhumanists. Both fall into the category of taking autonomy over your own body and identity and using technology to alter them as you see fit.

plus tons of milspec lazers and plasma rifles you will not see until ww3, most cyborgs are millitary too. started as a program to rehabilitate soldiers injured with loss of limb, you know they picked that shit up right fast and it's gotten better over 3 years I'm sure.

So guys, Driverless cars are being used on live roads now.

How do you feel about this futuristic dream come true?

I worry about this too. But I also race drive online sims as a hobby so I value the skill. However the semi auto stuff really bothers me. To be exact the auto braking to avoid rear ending the shit out of soem one a red light because you weren't paying attention. Well that inadvertantly ignores teh leson that people who are activly piloting a vehicle need to pay the fuck attention to avoid dieing horribly.

If fully automated cars are normalized and taken for granted much like almost every other mechanism in daily life this would not be a factor. But we are not there yet.

Granted with how fast cyborg shit is going it may only be a few years. I saw this morning that implant memory has moved beyond hte mice testing to human trials.

Cashier-less shops
Amazon Go
Just walk out like your were robbing the place. This has been a long time coming actually. I remember thinking about hacking your shopping ages ago.

Please tell me what this image is from. I have an itch to know

Driverless cars make way more sense than driven cars. Driving as a societal system doesn't require millions of individual high-powered but low-sensing processors (human drivers). It does need a vast network of nodes which know everything about all of the nodes around them and only have to make relatively very simple decisions.

so how do we go about achieving this futuristic aesthetic? Shirley, we would have to begin implementing the design as consumers in order for bigger things to catch on. You can change your desktop and change up your phone ui to look future-y and you can build fancy computers but what about the rest of it?
Where's the people making doors that sound like paper or coating house interiors with fascinatingly shaped and sometimes functional designs?

stuff like pic related exists but costs about 6K if you google 'futuristic furniture'.
so maybe theres a market for making shit like this but cheap idk what do you guys think

People have always been trying to actively create the future, but you just can't force a trend. In the end whatever you call futuristic now is just another reflection of the current aesthetic/zeigeist. Pic related, looking at that sort of art now we see how extremely typical it was of the 50s, and when we look back on what we considered futuristic/innovative/new in the 2010s a while from now, we'll just see the 2010s. By the time stuff like OP's picture will be common, it won't really be new and exciting anymore. Reminds me of the way new household technologies like dishwashers and vacuum cleaners grew in popularity in the 20s. By the time everyone could afford them, they weren't the future anymore.

Personally I think new materials will be more important than new shapes in the near future, like bamboo and rice fibers. It's always only been a small part of the population that was really willing to experiment with new forms and concepts from the beginning, the majority follows up after new movements very very slow. The future is really just unpredictable, and I think most people just wanna live in the now, they don't wanna live in what feels like a science-fiction world to them, and they wouldn't know how to achieve that anyway. The people who actually live in something like an open concept container house in the middle of Tokyo, all their electronics connected and intelligent, every single piece of furniture they own super thought-thru and highly functional, that's like ten people in total. Sure wish people were more eccentric and experimental, but I don't think we're anywhere close to that yet.

Creating the future takes time. I wanna step out the door and feel like I'm in the twenty-sixth century as much as the next guy on this board, but I don't think I'll ever feel like that. We already live in the future, the future of yesterday, but it just doesn't feel that way. It feels like the bland, boring present. Every generation is gonna feel that way, Our world is pretty cyberpunk when you think about it, but... that's just not how I feel about it.

Do you remember what computers and phones and shit looked like in the 2000s? All that god-awful multi-colored transparent plastic? All cloned off the original iMac, of course. And yet people thought that was the height of futuristic aesthetic. Then Apple comes along again with the iPhone and suddenly everyone thinks that future aesthetic is brushed aluminum and smooth glass.

It's all bullshit, 'future' aesthetics is really just envisioning the next evolution in style (as in the very next one, directly derived from the recombination of what is the current cutting edge, not some future n number of aesthetic shifts in the future.) But it doesn't matter, what your phone looks like is totally irrelevant, if your house is made out of smooth beige ovals like a '90s future or unending rectangular glass like a '00s future, what really matters is what it can do and how that can change your life. The look is just sugarcoating.

So, if you want really fancy high fashion stuff that looks 'futuristic' you're going to either have to pay the premium for high fashion goods or design things based on your own aesthetics. And in 10 years, no matter what, it will still look 'old fashioned' from the perspective of the next next new aesthetic.

futurism is abstract-modernism

people never think of more trees and wild life in the future but who knows, maybe that's what the future will look like. Cities turned back into jungles.

Well yeah, we'll all have moved to our giant computing cluster by the sun by then.

The near future will see greener cities, but they'll still be cities. Vertical gardens, community gardens, that kinda thing. And some major cities will probably actively try to make their citizens feel like they're living in a small town, with all the benefits of a city, like plenty of shopping opportunities, a good infrastructure etc. The San Francisco model is probably outdated, but the general idea will prevail.
About wildlife I'm not sure, I'd love to see a more sensible approach on that whole issue of predators and carrion eaters "invading" human environments, but I don't think that's gonna happen for a very long time. People are ridiculously afraid of raccoons and possums, just because they're perceived as dirty. I think it's gonna take treating wild animals like pets in terms of vaccines, maybe even registration, etc. in order for people to warm up to the concept of having animals bigger than a tit bird around. When that phase is over, I think we'll definitely go back to a more natural lifestyle, at least in the very rich areas where people can afford to spread out and not live all crammed-up in beat-up skyscrapers.
