The Future

As JeepersMedia points out, the USA now has the MegaUpload servers with all customer info and IP addresses of all uploaders and downloaders. They can extradite anybody to the USA and put them in prison if they don't pay 150,000$ per infringed item (This works on a per-song, per-episode basis). With new piracy laws immigration at airports can now scan your iPod for 'illegal' songs. Some poohead billionaire who can buy all the shit they could possibly want can send you a notice in the mail asking you to pay, or have you sent to jail forever and ever because really, who doesn't have at least 1000 'illegal' songs all lined up pleasurably for fast administration in their iTunes library? 1000 songs = 150,000,000 dollars! You go to, and die, in prison doing slave labor for the rest of your life because you downloaded some songs. The privatized prisons in the USA get to insert dickloads of zeros into the end of their bank balance as your family pays you to stay there and/or die.

Bittorrent is basically owned by the media too with cnet distributing over 50 clients and bittorrent facilitating programs. They purposely attempt to convince you with many psychological tricks and advertisements to perform illegal acts so that they can sue you and get money. In fact they probably make more money this way than they ever would if everyone who bought music bought it legally. Seriously, as if record producers don't make enough money already. Most early-days, coming-up artists usually give their music away for free anyway and once they hit big time their fame will get them into shows and concerts and ceremonies and they're set for life with money, drugs and sex; the holy trinity, it seems, for capitalist indulgence. Why do record companies still go for more gold, the digital green kind, suing everyone? Greed and stupidity are all I can see.

Perhaps in the future we will have such strict laws and regulations that the inmate and civilian status will be virtually the same. In one you wear the same orange clothes, follow extremely strict daily routines, then sleep. In the other, you do the exact same thing except you have a choice of jobs to do and a more relaxed wardrobe choice. But either way, you are a slave, creativity is out the door, you act like a machine and are treated like a machine and everything is done in a very precise manner or you are killed. I don't think it will get that bad though, rich fat fucks still need new episodes of desperate housewives and America's next top hooker to watch on their 145" superpower fusion doublewidescreen clap-on televisions and need Colombians to fuel their cocaine addictions.

What the fuck. Seriously, as a study from princeton shows, you need roughly $75,000 a year wherein your happiness and satisfaction no longer improves with increased salary. The only conclusion is there are too many stupid people in this world. If I could purchase anything with limitless funds I would still go with my dream of a small apartment, a fast computer, a few nice dinners with my girlfriend a year, and the best job ever; learning about and researching the molecular biology of the human organism; its DNA and organelles; I may not even use half of 75000 given my reserved spending style.

After all, what's it all matter? Moving on, and not entirely related, look at ourselves, we are organisms, organisms exist and gain their success through survival. What matters is surviving. If we can't look into the future and see a world with humans still in it, we are a failure. I want to reproduce biological immortality in humans and offer everyone a choice; reproduce and die or be biologically immortal. You can switch any time from immortality to mortality with children, but not back, and it will depend on the planet's resources. I am talking about any planet mind you. I hope to reproduce biological immortality in myself and offer genius mathematicians, engineers and scientists the ability to stay on this world alive a little longer and get us living on other planets and solar systems faster. On low-populated planets you will be able to maintain immortality and reproduce until a sustainable equilibrium between resources and human consumption is met, wherein the original rule is reinstated.

Once we have mastered evolution and survival, the universe and perhaps the multiverse will be our hedonistic pleasure playground. Nobody can or would want to harm another in the real world, everything would be entirely sustainable and self-repairing and if you wanted you could transfer your consciousness to a computer and act out any fantasy you want.

That is my ultimatum. To spread like the parasites we are and dominate the universe, but in the most sustainable manner for our own survival. Does that sound selfish? fuck yea it is, I am an organism and it's my, and everyone else's, natural drive to say fuck you to other species and become the dominant species. We have to be the most successful in every aspect of technology, psychology and biology; as a species we should aim to dominate the universe, have the best transport possibly produced by atoms, the best DNA, the best computers, the best manner of speech, the best physical movements, the best health; be the best survivors.

With our current society though, we're going to end up dead. We have shit education, shit governments, shit psychological drives and shit interest and investment in technology and science.

I won't give up trying to achieve biological immortality until we're the best fucking sustainable parasites to ever exist and spread like grass and mosquitoes through the cosmos. Everyone who doesn't want our species to be successful should just kill themselves or die right now, they are a liability to our species. If we end up a police state with almost everyone in jail not really doing anything useful we fail as well, we won't have the manpower or mental focus to successfully advance science to the point where we can colonize other planets and escape our dying sun.

What can you do as a person? well, fuck everything and directly aid the advancement of science or at least make it your goal and walk up the right sets of stairs to achieve this. If we do end up a police state I hope we are at least forced to work machines or perform academic tasks and research to get us onto other planets and become sustainable.

Realistically I think we're all fucked and I'm going to end up in prison or dying younger than I would have hoped. At least I can dream.

Conciousness Encapsulation Theory

***In retrospect I now firmly believe existence and the universe is forever a mystery to itself, it can only be experienced and explored for it's beauty and absurdity***

This first paragraph is my 'Consciousness Encapsulation Theory' I wrote on my phone once I put it all together in my mind, I added things in brackets to help make it clearer:

Consciousness is its own force, (possibly) a property of matter, and we (Our individual capacity to experience stimuli) are each a manifestation of this force influenced by the vibration, position and motion of electrons (or other small particles) holding (acting upon) the encapsulated force. When we die this force returns to experiencing the next largest encapsulation, maybe the Earth or perhaps the universe. Our consciousness is just an encapsulated part of the universal conscience. Everybody is just a different encapsulation in a different configuration experiencing different stimuli. Our 'soul,' or consciousness with ability to perceive or feel, is a single point or frequency within an infinite stream of consciousness. Wherever, by luck, our specific frequency exists, we experience the stimulus of the electrons (or other particles) encapsulating it. Neurons, or some structure in them, are the encapsulators.

We could test parts of this theory by studying the molecular basis of neurons and modifying small structures in neurons and seeing whether a person feels different.

With this theory, it explains that reincarnation can happen, sort of, but is based on luck alone (If consciousness can't affect matter). It cannot explain whether robots are individually conscious or not though (yet) as we do not know whether electrons flowing through a robot's circuitry (Or particles in the circuitry itself) encapsulate the force of consciousness, as said we need to study neurons more. We have to, by scientific imaging models and tests, identify the structures in our neurons that, when modified, make us feel different (Pain, pleasure, an emotion, see a colour etc.). These structures will be the ones influencing our consciousness and the structures that surround and hold these structures in place are providing the encapsulation.

I like to think of the force as a malleable plane, like a ribbon, similar to the videos and models of space-time showing planets and black holes producing dimples and stretching the plane. It may not be electrons, it could be any small particle, but it is some kind of particle(s) and their position, rotation, vibration and movement bending and stretching the force that causes us to feel things. The force is a universal 'experiencer' and can feel anything if bent or folded in the right way.

My ideas about what the encapsulators are or what consciousness is acted upon may not be technically correct, but the the concept, I think, is.

1. Consciousness is a force, like gravity or magnetism.
2. 1 or several types of small particles (Electrons, neutrinos, quarks, etc. or something completely different) can bend, stretch, or otherwise distort the force.
3. There are core elements of feeling that have a maximum and minimum intensity with infinite (analog) positions able to be felt between them. All pleasure, pain and emotions felt are a result of combinations of different core feelings we experience. These core feelings would be certain types of folds, bends and distortions in the conscious force - as said we would need to do more research on neurons or other encapsulators to find the core feelings. I believe each core would be a different type of fold, bend or other transmutation.
4. When the force is distorted, this causes the conscious entity to experience a core feeling.
5. To be a single conscious entity (like a human or other organism) you must encapsulate some of the force - like opening and closing a tupperware container in an ocean that encompasses the entire universe.
6. Some particles form a structure that encapsulate it and prevent it from experiencing another's consciousness.
7. The encapsulated force can be distorted, bent etc. by small particle-made structures within the entire encapsulation. I do not know whether things like viruses or non-neuronal cells or trees have encapsulating structures so I cannot say whether they are conscious or not - we need to do more research.
8. If being a single conscious unit makes you alive, then the definition of life is now much clearer.
9. There are infinite different states of consciousness, similar to how there are an infinite number of numbers.
10. We are each a different state (Or number by analogy; we each have our own personal ID number); our own personal consciousness or 'soul' is a certain underlying state; I can only explain it by analogy as being a specific colour or vibrating at a certain frequency.
11. Wherever our specific 'colour' or vibration is encapsulated and molded, we can feel the stimuli.

I cannot explain why only 1 conscious state (ID number) dominates in each encapsulation, but I think it is actually the 'average' of all the conscious states initially encapsulated, like putting different temperatures of water into a glass, the resulting temperature is the dominating temperature - or conscious state.

That is what I think. There are some technicalities for sure and it is unprovable (without further research), but I think it makes a lot of sense. If, evolutionarily, the particles in our neurons have come to produce bends in the conscious force to feel pain, or negativity, when performing actions that may inhibit our survival and pleasure in the opposite manner, then evolution, in some organisms, relies on consciousness and perhaps the force can influence the electrons traveling around our mind (I may be getting ahead of myself here) and the randomness and jiggles of quantum mechanics are caused by the conscious force trying to move particles into a position that will ultimately provide the most pleasurable state for the fabric of the conscious force! If we finally find the equations and models that predict how the quantum world works, we will have found the way in which consciousness itself works!

Then again this could all just be some pseudo-sciencey metaphysical nonsense, I hope I find out some day!

Meanderings 2

So, you sit and write. How's the world you think? how's your life and your stuff and your pets and your interests? How are the people you know and your interactions with them?

Curious questions, all with many answers, the more unique and coherent and the more relations they have to your audience the more likely anything worth writing about will be read when answering them.

Let's talk about facebook. Not really let's as that is 'let us', really I'm using it more as a link between me any you, the reader, for a more personal journey through the ideas I write - not as if I'm an organization or group of people pressing keyboards buttons in turns. So facebook. The majority of people with computers use facebook, they use it to organize events, instant message and talk about their personal lives. When I use it, sometimes my heart skips a beat. New notifications? oh my, people are giving me attention, a mild sense of self-importance flows over me. Somebody complimented me - do I like their post? I just liked a whole bunch of other people who complimented me; would my likes have no value if I like posts too much? Somebody says facebooks sucks, do I reply to them? do I post on others walls if I am not a close friend? Am I due for a new profile picture? am I really benefiting anyone by commenting negatively on the Christianity beats Atheism page?  I don't know. Social etiquette on facebook is just so complex.

It works though, my privacy probably isn't respected nearly as well as it could be but it's alright and hasn't caused me much harm yet.

I can't be fucked writing anymore. Later dildo faggins. I'll talk about more cooler, more retarded, shit next post.

Love and hugs.
