How many of you would willingly merge yourself with technology in order attain ideal femininity?

Under what conditions would you do so?

I'd clone myself after storing and copying my consciousness in a quantum mainframe.
My clone would live at Versailles, Tahiti, and Patagonia respectively; her life time would 156 years. This is after all the ignorant masses and true villiain bydlo are exterminated by their own devise.

Nah probs not, for me there is a limit. sometimes espesh when im on lots of psychedelics i feel bad for taking synthetic hormones, but its a necessary evil and would avoid them if i could.

I guess if there was some kind of robotic ovaries they could implant in me then.... maybe.

"do what you have to do to join the party" those bastards lol

I just don't like that I could lose them/access to them, etc and couldn't make or grow or anything them necessarily easily(still need to look into that ha) and I'd get all gross and what not. And might be even more up the river if I did cut my balls off. Necessary evil idk about that(sounds a bit harsh? and would you be okay with something from a plant that worked the same way and therefore wasn't "synthetic"?) but unfortunate. And ofc that it's probably not like ideally healthy is also less than ideal lol but yeah.

As far as this other question, might depend on how deep everyone else is in it and maybe the utility, but so far looking at the world today and tendencies, what's that dues ex game? I don't remember exactly what it's about but I assume I'd just be putting more control of my body into other people's hands, possibly capitalists lol, so like def not that, and then if it weren't like that though like some good future then I'd probably still not rather do stuff that is likely to have problems, mess up, etc or just complicate things. oh but what if it could simplify things? sounds sketch still, they'd have to be seriously good and like fully knowledgeable about the human body, etc and that seems unlikely for a while. I'm not even thinking about attaining ideal femininity at this point though so imma stop didn't think I'd ramble lol

So I watched Ex Machina just now. And I'm not if being an organic life form appeals to me. The fragility and imperfections of my own body and mind, cause me to question do I want to be at the mercy of nature. Surely there has to be some form of sentient hominid that does not have our imperfections. Watching the end of the film evoked a certain emotion for me, a positive hopeful one. The perfection of this female robot.

I know the film had other subplots about chauvinism and shit,but I digress.

i think if anything in ex machina it shows that even AI is flawed you know, with the whole murdering the creator guy and leaving that guy to just die after manipulating him to escape was pretty monstrous. but if you're talking about the physical side of it, i mean there are lots of imperfections and downsides maybe just as much as being organic! having to go to a mechanic for a tune up, how expensive it must be to replace your parts.

besides life would get pretty boring after a while, i think one of the great things about life is you eventually do die, so you rush around trying to fulfil objectives before you die or before 'its too late' if you could just get your parts replaced endlessly and never pass on then what would you do? wouldn't you have less of a purpose in life? i think death is one of the best motivators we have in life to do what we do.

I understand why the CEO Billionaire guy was killed, I mean the android saw him doing some pretty demented shit to the other androids; he was like a guy who kills small animals or cuts the heads off of dolls. She also told the blond guy that he was not to be trusted. So she obviously knew what was up, she had a reason to do that. The guy was using them as glorified sex toys.

What happened to the blonde guy made no sense. But maybe she wanted out and to live as a full human, and the only way to do that was to eliminate them both.

when i first saw that movie it scared the shit out of me, i had to turn it off and pace around the living room for 10 mins before I turned it back on because i was having a panic attack. No movie has ever made me feel like that and any movie thats tried just seemed try-hard

The reason i like 2001 and other movies like it is because its a art film there is no set meaning. I.e. Like when HAL kills all the crew; some people watch that and say HAL is evil. Other people like my self think HAL killed the crew because he was the olny one on the ship who knew the true mission details. And when they where ploting to shut him off, he killed them not to be vendictive but to save the mission. Both are correct awnsers i think. But because its open to interpretation that means it reaches people on a much deaper level that they resonate with.

As far as the monkey thing im totally with you. But the fist time i watched the whole movie I actually skipped that part. But tafter seeing it like 8 times i get why he did it. The whole move is ment to be like sex its all this slow build up to this crazy climax at then end when he goes into the monolith. An then your given a terrifying 16 minute climax. That could only exist emotionally if you had gone threw the whole ride.

But seriously try and realize for me he made a black square floating in space one of the scariest things ive seen in film. Thats one hell of a accomplishment.

hmm, interesting. I wonder if that's before or after eyes wide shut. It's prolly my fav too, but eyes wide shut is close. Actually it's in my top 3 movies of all time. Another one would be Waking Life which I smiled so hard at, that my smiling muscles were hurting halfway through the movie. The third one I don't even know. Either Akira or Apocalypse Now I guess. Both are pretty dark though, why don't they make great movies that are ecstatic? Well I maybe there are some really good movies that are quite uplifting, but I mean like next level movies, those are usually quite melancholic... Maybe that's what makes them great?

Can you imagine if we are in a matrix inside a matrix inside a matrix inside a matrix inside a matrix inside a matrix inside a matrix etc etc etc? how funny would that be? like humans always get to that point where they invent the technology to upload their brain to a computer so it just continues on for eternity and thats the ultimate survival of humanity, computerised representations of real life who eventually develop the ability to upload our minds to a computer that eventually go on to invent the ability to upload their minds to computers.

Its like some guy is just chillin being like "i wonder what it was like to be a trans at the beginning of the 21st century" then goes and pays someone to upload his mind into that exact situation the only draw back is in order for it to work correctly they cant be aware that they exist in an upper level of reality so are forced to forget momentarily so when the time is up, they are just sitting in a room infront of a computer being like "woah what a trip man".

Thats a pretty cool transhumanism thing, im not sure if i'd do it, i paid a lot of money to be a trans at the beginning of the 21st century, maybe next time ill be a peasent slave in the 1500's milking cows or something.

This is an ancient thread. I'm surprised this one amongst many are still around.
So I watched "What Happened to Monday" a pseudo-feminist technothriller, actually liked it. Awhile back I played Beyond Two Souls for free and got strong vibes of weirdness and just like how real is real, partially because Ellen Page is a outspoken liberal and feminist and the games content. In addition to some of my own personal experiences.

All the mean time I had a fling with this lame ass guy from another college. And I started thinking about cloning myself using his and my DNA. To create like the perfect specimen and preserve my genetic legacy. Honestly I don't want children but I sort of want to clone myself using my and someone else's DNA. I think with current trends having children is socially irresponsible.

Someone needs to be, who should be allowed to procreate? Who will survive you to congratulate you on your moral decision?

not passing on genetics is one of the hardest things i have had to deal with by being a trans person, since you know the entire point to life is survival and when it comes down to it, the primary source of survival is to propagate.

But if only socially irresponsible people propagate then its safe to assume that the human race evolves to be socially irresponsible which means that the planet will just turn out the same way.

But isnt it too late to reverse climate change anyway? the earth is going to be even more water and less land, so there is still going to be overcrowding, the biosphere will still be toxic and with less land to produce food and dump waste and so famine and unimaginable pestilence are still going to happen, so your moral decision actually changes nothing.

because technology fixes absolutely everything, it'll fix all the overcrowding, underfed EVERYTHING.

Technology fixing all problems is an overstatement. For example the Pacific Garbage patch is a major ecological problem that can be fixed with innovative technologies. Chemical Engineers can engineer plastics that break down faster in salt water and are not toxic to the environment. This an example of technology fixing a problem.

However continuing to pollute the planet at the current rate will probably make it impossible to fix anything

> i mean if you dont want kids just say "i dont want to bring a child into this world" rather than "yeah i like dont wanna have kids because like having kids is socially irresponsible and like im spinning the idea into being moral rather than just saying i dont want to have kids"

I would like to have children with the right significant other. However current events and future trends seem to make having a child very unfair for that child and the biosphere as a whole. We are part of the biosphere.

>because technology fixes absolutely everything, it'll fix all the overcrowding, underfed EVERYTHING.
Humanity has engineered terrifying weaponry and machines of death to fix overcrowding. But again technology fixing everything is an overstatement.
