Is it just me or does there seem to be a general foreboding like quality to the future in our zeitgeist?
Or to put it another way; does anyone else get a generally bad feeling about humanity's future?

So how's this dystopian future going for you guys?

It's alright for me. I did acid yesterday that someone bought off the internet for the first time. Watched rick and morty's memory parasite episode while tripping.

Smoked weed which is legal here. Fired a gun that I bought from a private dealer a long time ago before it became illegal. But I fired the gun before I was tripping. Not like it would have mattered, it was a low dose and I'm on medications so it was not as strong as it would have been. I jacked off after the rick and morty episode and realized how ineffective our generation must be at breeding or staying motivated because of porn.

In this dystopian future I have a shitload of porn, apparently.

I don't know. This is definitely a dystopian future, but I like it in terms of pleasure. But I'm worried now how easy access to pleasure will affect our next dystopian future. I'm kind of concerned that everything will be run into the ground (trump 2016 and kanye 2020) while everyone thinks that life is a joke and jacks off in a drug-induced haze.

So basically I'm born in a time where I can't explore space, but I can think about it while drugged out. I'm worried that I'm not doing enough to improve life on this planet so that we can leave Earth as well as want to return.

Can we just talk about our current dystopian future and talk about how to make the world better on an individual level to help us get into a better future? This future is fine and all but I don't want the next future to be a worse one.

With symbiotic excavations of deep thoughts flowing through nerves and across an impact media, the storage of these thoughts are placed forward in time. Only in the smallest of intervals, but the accumulation of this systematic process pushes and forces a wheel of aggregation. This aggregation of lowly sediment is the zeitgeist of pop. Between those breed extremities of the range, lies the picture true picture of the current future in gradient. If we keep posting to the world at large we stand a chance of this future being the now in its state of being.
Given the urge to consume and create is a fundamental need. So lets keep the feed in place and spawn an infinite complexity for this future picture that we wish to see. Sight is to see, we need to be feel this new frame that has been presented to us. Lets do the right thing, and ensure it the seeds are sown for our current future.
A steady flow of relentless consciousness is proper way to ensure the coming permutations are not simply a tired rehashing of themselves, but something entirely new. A wave may be unique, but the median done to death. And that's just as bad as death. To be bored is to subject yourself to break where you glimpse the reality of where you stand on a rock in a vast space of expansion, that has no end - just you.

Just read the synopsis. I'm not seeing the connection. Maybe the plot made sense in 2005, but now that we're growing organs by themselves, why would you bother growing an entire clone?

Someone needing an entire body to transplant their brain into would bring us closer to the movie though. Cloning is it's own kettle of fish to regulate though, I bet there'll be separate laws for it even if it uses almost the same process and equipment as new babies.

Not true. Most of the body's automatic functions are handled by the brain stem. If a clone could be grown with no real brain save for the parts used to keep things like respiration, heartbeat and all running then it would do just fine and has fewer moral implications. It's a "blank" so to speak. It is a copy of that person but it has no consciousness or thoughts.

Everybody's well-aware that Netflix is creating their own programming these days, but it wasn't until I looked it up that I saw the scale of it.* When you think about it, they are probably in the best position in the world to do so, because they have so much data on exactly what viewers want.

Sure, Netflix can recommend a show or a movie you might like, but with the data they have, they can do a lot more. They could recommend a specific scene you might like, or a specific movie trope you might like, or a specific camera angle or film style you might like.

Did you stop watching a movie at a particular point? Did you fast forward through a scene? Did you skip to the next episode of a TV show? Netflix can find out what specific component of the program you disliked.

It's breathtaking to imagine that Netflix can feasibly take all of these data points, and almost formulaically generate movie or tv show scripts destined to be well-received by a specific group or demographic of users which they can select. It's like the movie equivalent of genetic engineering & gene splicing. It's the future of popular cinema. Algorithmic Cinematography.

But like, if you saturate the video down to it's crucial parts, you eliminate the immersion, and there's also less than 10 minutes in every movie, it gets really down to the wire and the plot and neither are regarded with sincerity so why should netflix occupy your wallet with a subscription

Max Planck Institut für Plasmaphysik, Greifswald, Germany

Germany’s new Wendelstein 7-X stellarator was fired up for the first time, rounding off a construction effort that took nearly 2 decades and cost €1 billion. Initially and for the first couple of months, the reactor will be filled with helium—a nonreactive gas—so that operators can make sure that they can control and heat the gas effectively. At the end of January, experiments will begin with hydrogen in an effort to show that fusing hydrogen isotopes can be a viable source of clean and virtually limitless energy.

Assembly of the stellarator was completed in April of last year, and after a period of careful testing of its various components, the science team finally flicked the switch on December 10. This saw around a single milligram of helium gas heated to one million degrees Celsius (1.8 million° F), with the flash observed on cameras and measuring devices for one tenth of a second.

"We're very satisfied", said Dr. Hans-Stephan Bosch, division head of Wendelstein 7-X, following the December 10 test. "Everything went according to plan."

I think that's more like the could be a great idea in the future kind of thing. Research into it should happen just in case but as for mainstreaming it, I can only think of dystopic scenarios where it would be desirable.
