keep your spiritual waxings in your prostelytize thread, please.

leave the brain research to people who actually use theirs.


now back to the thread and it's purpose.

So, there's no fence at the "end of the Universe" right? And even if there's an end to confusion we call matter/information, there can be no end to the emptiness outside of what we pretend to be measurable...

There is no yesterday. There is no tomorrow.

Thus we are undeniably the direct spontaneous manifestation of an infinite Force that holds everything together.

Call it God, Buddha, Brahma, Metta, candy canes or unicorns...

We are the Truth, the Way and the Light radiating Faith, Hope and Love.

Deal with it. Your confusion about the value of your time is absurdly clouded by your Belief in Death... that you should only do things that appeal to your temporary ego.

It is impossible to "be" dead... you will never declare such in Truth, thus you can only ever experience eternal Life. Divine patience for your enlightenment is unshakeable.

God bless you!

Thank you, kind disciple...

If there is a God...

Telepathy is all that you've ever known in that you are the direct manifestation of the Source of all Being...

If Science is all we got...

Telepathy is like some kind of magical thing to think "two different" imaginary beings could possiblly understand each other without "tangible evidence."

"Telepathy is all..."

I think you ment telemetry. Burningman is just lousy with directed energy mind control use, for like ten years. Don't you guys every remember anything, jeesh. Like the time I got stuck on my bike and there was like 30K people yelling "Go dog Go." That was funny as hell, I tripped out on that.

Okay, as you were.

As is often when it sounds too good to be true there is a drawback
"growing brain cells on its skin"

Also the required "genetic code" to transfect (?) the cell, seems to be generated from thin air.
I imagine you have to use personalised and tissue dedicated code.

Brain-computer interface... at first I thought it'd be totally epic to transfer our consciousness to computers like Transformers and live forever (in this Universe.)

But over time I thought about the potential corruption that could arise from everyone being tied into the internet/computer system that could be easily programmed/manipulated by the government/Elite... and basically you would already be dead/a computer program as soon as you transferred.

Considering how beautiful and epic this Universe as we know it is... it seems to me that there's a Divine magic to it all... "death" is a part of life... so to try to become a robot when you were already born "13.7 billion years ago" miraculously is just kind of silly... Go with the flow... I predict all the folks who transfer their consciousness to computers and take off to different planets and "dimensions" are on a collision course with Death...

I'd rather just live the simple human life...

"The meek shall inheret the Earth."

...

A Zen Master was asked by a Mother, "What's the secret to have a happy family?"

The Zen Master responded, "The father dies, the son dies, the grandson dies."

The lady gets very distraught by this answer...

But the Master says, "Well if the son dies before the father what a tragedy it would be for the family... and if the grandson dies before the father, how much greater the tragedy."

...

There is an order to the Way things should be...

You camp at Death Guild?

Is "Go away, you bother me, smalls" really a heady response to what I said?

Have you ever seriously considered the potentiality of brain computer interface?

If you could transfer your "consciousness/life" to a computer, would you really do it?

Cool... I really thought the same not long ago...

But are "you" still alive after the transfer? Or are you in the computer matrix?

Then what's to say you can't be deleted or reprogrammed into something you didn't want to be?

Also, where is any such science that supports that this is possible? What if there are greater scientific/divine laws that makes this impossible? I mean, it's one thing to learn to fly, birds do it, but to transfer the entire human consciousness to a computer is another can of worms... borderline retarded IMO...

It'd be cool to manipulate all molecules around you telepathically... but what about those with bad intentions? Or then would there have to be a governing body to make sure they don't hit the ultimate delete button? Which begs the question, how do we trust those in charge of such decisions?

And if we're all in the such a program, how could we think we'd have any say it such a system? Who would be in "charge" if we were all one program?

---

On a side note, one of my silly theories is that black holes are advanced intelligent species that have reached the singularity/computer program... what better way to protect your empire than to consume everything that enters your orbit?

---

Have you read "Talking to God" by the Ragged Trousered Philosopher?

It won't offend you... it's actually written by an atheist and the God he talks to is very scientifically advanced. Very entertaining... check it out if you have 10 minutes to spare...

You may like big robots but the little ones are where it's at... the bigger they are the harder they fall... large scale structures create targets that can be destroyed... nanobots can Leave No Trace for larger things to observe or destroy... spaceships aren't gonna take large scale objects like humans to other planets... nano technology will transmit information across galaxies treating the atomic and above scale Universe like an electrical grid... and with the rise of brain-computer interface technology, you won't have to leave your neocortex to make art out of galactic super clusters... we'll dive further into the Universe by going smaller and creating our own new multiverses... if we keep going bigger we'll sit outside the Universe which will look as boring as the WMap.

“Evolution creates structures and patterns that over time are more complicated, more knowledgable, more creative, more capable of expressing higher sentiments, like being loving,” he said. “It’s moving in the direction of qualities that God is described as having without limit.”

“So as we evolve, we become closer to God. Evolution is a spiritual process. There is beauty and love and creativity and intelligence in the world — it all comes from the neocortex. So we’re going to expand the brain’s neocortex and become more godlike.”

No one in their right mind is going to fall for the future of mind controlled nanobots. Manipulating atoms and DNA might sound like a commendable concept in medical sciences but that's just a huge distraction.
It'd have to take a substantial wipeout globally to human civilization as we know it to have the idea even thrown into the possibility of potential aspects. Thus integrating the rise of AI, at which point, nanobots will be completely unnecessary... at least the ones you're speaking of.
I may be wrong... perhaps people are more naïve... but I like to give people the benefit of the doubt.
Nanotechnology is science fiction and while the advances appear to be progressing, we won't see it becoming physically integrated, at least in our lifetime.

The computer revolution has begun... the only way you posted this shit is thru your iTard (or any computer)...

The Holy War rages on long after debates over brain-computer interface began... too late...

The proliferation of how we deal with technology is a fundamentally undeniable consequence the "ape-descendents" will HAVE to deal with...

AI is delusional bullshit... only We(manifestations of God) get to program the computers... nanobots along with iTards are the product of our wisdom (or lack-there-of.)

Anything smaller than we think is the smallest is "science fiction? " Yeah... just like a hundred years ago Jets were "impossible." Embrace Evolution or go extinct...

How is it ludricous to think we will evolve alongside the technologies we create? Between the .001-.0012% range...

Because electricity, computers, jets, astro and quantum physics are illusions?

Good luck. ;)

If you don't embrace Decommodification then we got limitless slave-masters for ya... if you realize Satan/Money ain't worth shit, then I'll see ya IN Heaven...

If you don't embrace advancing towards Divinity, then I'll see ya FROM Heaven.

The choice is yours... without free will, God wouldn't be interested in what we have to say.
