im just correcting my older post..

memories dont make the person. they make the personality.

when we are born our personality is a blank. and our memories will

change that personality.

 

so if you´d put your memories into a robot it would

just have your personality. well.. thats still kinda cool.

 

 

 

 

a thing ive noticed.

these days many things that were called "magic"

can now be made with technology.

 

for example the telepathy i was talking about earlier.

 

EDIT: damn i had a cool idea!

in the future when we will start upgrading us with technology we

will be able to make ourselves smarter.

 

but what if we would also make.. say.. monkeys smarter.

then we could have a conversation with another species.

 

i got that idea when i was watching this.

That idea could easily lead to the fall of the human race. Technology is a double edged sword.

not if you wouldnt teach the monkeys how to upgrade another monkeys.

or just mak them smart enough to talk to us but still dumb enough not to

knowdess the difference between Soulja Boy and a real artist. actually thats too dumb.

Ah, but with intelligence comes problem-solving. If humans figured it out, it's always possible that monkeys will.

apologies for this double post but this is the only way i can bumb this back to the front page

and therefore have someone to actually read this.

 

i had a weird thought: what if in the future when i could replace the rest of my body with mechanics

exept my brain. and i would walk, speak and all that just like a normal human but instead

of the ..somethingsomething going through my nervous system to ..say a muscle in my arm it would go

to an artificial muscle through wires and such. and then cameras (eyes) microphones (ears)..

would give me the image and audio of the world around me to my brain.

 

now heres the weird part:

what if my brain would be in another place and the commands and visual/audio would

be wireless. you would see as the robot, hear as the robot and move around as the robot.

you would "be" the robot but the robot would still be 100% mechanics and 0% you.

We do have the technology to replicate most of the human body and pass instructions from the brain to them, and have the brain receive inputs when it comes to eyes. We also have the wireless technology (obviously) but we don't have the technology to either revive or support the brain outside of the body, or at least I don't think we do.

that wasnt my point. we will have that in the future.

 

but the point of it is it being just a really weird though.

what you would concider as "yourself" would be made 100% out of mechanics.

 

and the fact that someday that will be possible

QUOTE]Very few of us go "over swamp land" to get to work in the morning.Technology may be able to design a hovercar that can do this, but there is no way it will fit into our daily lives. Therefore it's unjustifiable to make such a thing. This forces the slow down of technoogy.
You use roads right? Roads are dangerous, they have pot-holes, black ice, water etc. on them. None of that affects this machine. Marsh land was an example, you could use it as a dune buggy, go over snow, long grass etc. that your more standard machines couldn't all handle, you'd need an array of them to do what this machine can do. Its small at the moment because its for personal use, take the same concept and put it in commercial vehicles

Hover Cars are unsafe. What do you think the point of curbs is? If Hover cars were ever to become widespread, be it for personal or commercial use it would be impossible to adapt modern road and transport systems to cater to these new vehicles. The driver of a car which strikes a curb realises they have done so and the car's motion is impared, all be it slightly. A hover car on the other hand has no contact with the curb and so would not know it has strayed off the road. This would be hazardous for pedestrians and the drivers of hover cars alike.

 

Another draw back is that from a policing standpoint having widely available all terrain vehicles which can truly be all terrain is unaccpetable. Imagine a high speed chase in which the criminal can simply glide across virtually all obstacles. This level of freedom and the fact that these vehicles are unrestricted by the Highway cade in the same way cars are mean that they would be extremely useful in the wrong hands.

 

I think that hover cars are currently unviable. They will, and rightly so, remain a novelty for now.

Society rests on it's working population. Not individual employers. Society benifits when everyone works, not when jobs are done quicker/cheaper or better by technology.

I disagree with this. What so great about work anyway?

 

Society benefits when people think, when people create, when people learn. Work can include these things, but most jobs are repetitive and people would be better off without them. Work for no purpose seems to be part of the protestant work ethic. Work as the point of life, increasing one's wealth the duty and purpose of man, serving the growth of capital.

 

Technology however has something of a work ethic itself, of power without cost in terms of education. While using a sword effectively to kill someone unarmed requires years of training, using a gun in a similar situation is contrastingly anti-merit. Power to pollute, to kill, to do so many things.
