Terrans Vs. Spacemen

Postby Simon of the Playa » Fri Nov 05, 2010 1:27 pm

ok,

lets review.

santas vs. clowns
ninjas vs. pirates
monkeys vs. robots
Art Fags vs. SparklePonies(tm)



and now this year,

TERRANS VS. SPACEMEN !!!

welcome to the beginning of the Technocalyps

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmwdYV5Lluw


yes, NASA has decided a Four Person One-Way trip to mars to determine sustainability is in our near future

http://nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov/planetary/ma ... _crew.html

it's time for YOU TO TAKE SIDES!

do you want to EVOLVE into a bio-mechanical essence that can travel to the far reaches of the universe via technology or do you want to stay on stinky old polluted doomed earth.

i think the answer is clear, and Werner Von Braun was Right.

we must go where no man has gone before, and i'm not talking about the ugly lesbian at the YMCA who works the front desk.

SPACE!


it's time.

let the Terrans wallow in their own Filth and Nag Champa.

we have worlds to conquer.

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

ok...if you insist.


the rite of passage we are ALL going thru is the phase known as TRANSHUMANISM.

as we as a species TRANSITIONS to a post-human existence.

this is not as scary as it sounds.

But then again, aren't ALL RITES OF PASSAGE fraught with some inherent danger or fear of the unknown?

We are moving into a new age (god i hate that phrase) of bio-mechanical beings, namely us.

The genetic code and the rapid development of supercomputing converging to make it possible the dreams of integration and infinity, and beyond.

we are becoming masters of our own fate, almost as gods.

heresy? or Evolution..

choose a side.

embrace the robot, for it is us.

this software needs updating.

Postby ZeroandOne » Sat Nov 06, 2010 10:57 am

this hardware is non-sustainable.

the second world cannot ALL live as those do in the First.

This needs to be addressed, by logical, sentient, computers.

you may not like the answer.
