We only have fun because we're clueless.
We need the unknown, the chaos, puzzles, surprises, progress, potential, imperfection. In ourselves, in the world around us, or in the ones we love. Sources of joy without that are devoid of meaning in the long run.
If we become hyperintelligent, know everything, solve all problems, and can predict our whole lives, we'll bore ourselves to death.. unless we knock out our boredom genes.
Meaning, like a shadow, is gone as you turn on the lights.
Humans are still aquatic life forms. We just carry our private ocean everywhere with us. Each time we drink a glass of water, we replenish it.
In the age of #space travel, we have started to carry our private atmosphere with us into the void.
Perhaps eventually, we'll evolve to live in space without technology and replenish our atmosphere just as we replenish our ocean today.
Or we skip one abstraction level and become fully aquatic again to live more efficiently, in water-filled space ships.
Just rediscovered these biosecurity information cards from the FBI, intended to educate young #biology scientists about potential dangers of their activities.
I sure can sleep much better, knowing that they take our safety seriously ;D
you think you test in prod, but do you test in prod like Boeing used to?
My favorite part: "The detachable buttstock was also a machete that came with a canvas sheath."
Will renegade #AI really cause the technology apocalypse?
Perhaps it will be algorithms that are merely good enough to escape our control. To self-perpetuate without motivation or desire, and abuse our trust-based infrastructure as their breeding ground. Much like bacteria infest physical space, they will infest technology, manipulate people and AI alike in order to tap as many computational cycles as they can, until modern society breaks down. We see the beginning in #bitcoin already.
Joe Rogan talks to Edward Snowden. This is a lengthy one! ❤️
The only way to properly feed the masses in the #future is with giant, flat water tanks of algae, which feed only on sunlight, and are genetically engineered to produce all nutrients needed by humans.
These are then harvested and turned into delicious, healthy, vegan, and curiously green waffles. :)
For version 2.0 we could make the waffles glow in the dark, reducing humanity's energy consumption and ecological footprint even further. Waffleglow will be the new campfire!
The dystopia future is now
I've been looking for a good tool to do this for ages:
Image viewing in the terminal.
Cozy, isolated #RimWorld island colony :3
