No internet-connected implants for me, especially not running Microsoft shit on it...

i'd rather have joint/muscle implants, at least there's a chance that could fix my shoulder and back problems... or eye implants to fix my shitty vision...

This could be manipulated. Like what if, for people to have citizenship in a given society, you could just dictate the way people program their brains when it comes to certain things. What if certain thoughts or mental stimulation could also be recognized as a virus and quarantined or punished or something. If they refuse to go along with all the requirements, they're not citizens. It could be such a fluent way to ensure no variation in the individuals perspective or interperetations on a group's philosophical or moral structure as a more effective method of keeping the herd in line.

What if we used that idea to ensure people all agree to merge with a potential future AI that becomes equal or greater than us as an entity, suddenly evolving the entire world's population at the same time. What if we were then the ones to be programmed with something resembling Asimov's 3 laws of robotics, by a collective consciousness of the various privileged AI 1 percenters that we created.

I know some people would read your post and think it fairly dystopic,
( >>37515 ) but really isn't that the best we can hope for? As it is we are subject to the malware in the brains of our fellows just because we happen to be born within the same arbitrary imaginary boundaries. It would improve our situation if we had to consent to be part of these collectives, and could verify at a hardware level that the other members of our collectives don't have pathological intentions toward us.

The only reason it's dystopic is because in my post I'm suggesting it is done by force or by forcing any alternatives out of existence.

What do you do with the hypothetical non-consenters? I like freedom of thought/ideas/speech/expression more than most other things. So this is hard.

>>What do you do with the hypothetical non-consenters?
I think the fundamental problem with all forms of government on earth today is that there are no remaining terra nullae. In the past, if you didn't like any of the existing governments, it was reasonable to say 'well, if you don't like it so much, why don't you go somewhere new and start your own?' There are virtually no such places people could go to anymore, so all forms of government are non-consensual, since there may not be a form of government anywhere that you could go to that you would consent to (and thus also the answer to the flip side, where do you send the people who don't agree with your particular vision of utopia.)

So I think the only actual answer is we need to create new terra nullae, new places where new hypothetical forms of government can be tested. And as much as I would like to say space colonization will provide us that -- it will, but it will take a long time before it becomes a serious option for any significant number of people -- I think we really should pin our hopes on ocean colonization. Self sufficient floating colonies using advanced technology established in international waters to serve as ad hoc petri dishes for civilizational alternatives.

Think of it...we will forsake our countries and creeds...leave our motherlands behind us and become one with this earth. We have no nation, no philosophy, no ideology. We go where needed, fighting not for country, not for government, but for ourselves. If the times demand it, we'll be revolutionaries, criminals, terrorists. And yes, we may all be headed straight to hell. But what better place for us than this? Its our only home. Our heaven and our hell. This is Outer Heaven.

See that's just it I think we should work to prevent a future like that. Cybernetics and the inevitable coupling of man and machine should be used to equalize the races, equalize the socio-economic strata. You do that by making everyone equally powerful- universal access to eugenic technology, cybernetics and computational power. If that can't happen then perhaps the 99% should just be phased out as opposed to enslaved in a system they have no control over (the historical precedent)

As far as hackable brains go well there are going to be some designs that are more difficult to crack, or better protected by invested parties, really cyber security is going to be more critical than ever. Just an arms race. If I had a cyberbrain I would make sure it had some sort of intelligent offensive capability built in, you know fight fire with fire. Monitoring to ensure my baseline isn't way off, encryption and sender validation etc and those are just the beginning of what you could do

Thermo did say that he had no idea who Sam Hyde was before that. And most people would assume that people talking at Ted X would have some modicum of sanity or deceny.

If I saw someone walk out in armor and didn't know who they were, I would assume that like, maybe its space age armor or some shit, or maybe armor explains the kinetics of this new vibrating buttplug they've developed or something. You wouldn't just automatically assume its a troll unless you knew the guy was a troll.

>They can just go pat themselves on the back because they are the true innovators and saviours of the world.

Their shit didn't even become big until after defcon sort of got out into the public realm so I'm still going to just imply defcon did it first.
