Stephen Hawking is dead..

 Its great to see him smile like this. Makes my heart tingle. 

Its great to see him smile like this. Makes my heart tingle. 

Wow. It's so oddly strange when people you never thought would die do so. Jezes. Now it was Stephen Hawkins time. Death is really a weird concept, and he just wasn’t around long enough to even be able to extend life, which I’ve heard rumors about being possible within ten years. So.. When great minds leave the building its a big loss for humanity. Pioneers that drives our society and knowledge forward and challenges all of us… Those are the people we need to be here. Who’s gonna replace him? Hopefully he is in a better place now, I’d like to look at things a bit more spirituality and optimistically and I really wish for him to be somewhere where he is not attached to his old body, hope he is just an entity that can fly around in space or that he has been redesigned into something else.

Thank you Stephen for everything you helped out with. Without you I guess lots of things would still be a mystery to us.

Good luck.

All the best

Week In Review - 4th of February

Them weeks passes by quickly these days without sunshine and constant mix of snow and heavy rain everyday. Today its sunny for the first time in weeks. Nothing feels better to me than having the sun licking my face. It makes me feel more alive than ever.

Lets go through this week: Altered Carbon, Human Ubers, facebook is banning cryptocurrency ads etc..

Starting with The One and Only Altered Carbon, Netflix most expensive TV series this far launched 2nd of February, I've been waiting for months. It's a sci-fi ten episode 1 hour crime series. Too me it isn't even sci-fi, because this is technology soon to exist in our worlds too. Not different from other futuristic movies, it's got a negative view point on where we are heading. Altered carbon is illustrating worst case scenario where the richest are immortal and in control of basically everything. And they are bored. The plot is no other than solving a murder. Finding the murderer who killed the person in his previous sleeve as they call it. Sleeve meaning body. Consciousness is backed up and secure but the body can die usual deaths so if one die a new clone is made or another persons sleeve is to be used. I watched all the episodes in two days. Traditionally I've never been into sci-fi. But this sci-fi is not really Fiction, this is just science. Which I love. Wanna se the trailer? Click here

Coco was also released this week, as I'm a Disney lover, that was kinda exciting news. So had to share it and add it, incase you were to...

As, Usual, Futurisms Weekly Video Wrap up of This Week in Science is added:

#HARDSCIENCE

COSMOS.. This is fascinating.. The video below shows us the most detailed simulation of the cosmos up to ever made. 

#HEALTH&MEDICINE

Two Women will undergo three parent baby therapy in the UK. Regulators in the United Kingdom have this week given doctors green light to perform mitochondrial donation therapy. Hmm this is super exciting and weird. What do you think? Read more about it here

How it Works:

I'm waiting and waiting for the day that when we no longer have to do surgery, not even touch the body when something happens if something happens you simply just swallow a small pill or drink a liquid and then it makes the wound go away just by sending in nano boots or intelligent stem cells or something. Or just radiating particles from outside of the body. And now it seems like we are on our way to get there.
Researchers just invented a tiny "minimalist robot" that looks like a caterpillar and can perform a wide range of movements, including jumping, crawling through tunnels, and climbing out of a pool. It is designed to deliver drugs to specific targets in the human body.

This robot should one day allow it to patrol the human body from the inside, according to researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, Germany, who describe their work in a Nature paper. Below you can watch a short video on the concept.

#FUTURESOCIETY
 

Canada is trialing blockchain! 
Canada announced that it will trial the use of blockchain to add transparency to government funding and research grants. Other countries are onto it as well.
This means that every time the NRC creates or alters a grant, that information is added to the blockchain, which will be connected to a publicly accessible online database. TRANSPARANCY! YES. YES!

#EARTH&ENERGY

Check out this awesome renewable energy ship.
Eco Marine Power has announced plans to test their patented solar sails next year. These EnergySails would utilize solar and wind energy simultaneously. 
Lets upgrade all boats to this solution, ASAP! It runs on both wind and solar energy. Whop whop!

HAVE A NICE WEEK PEEPS :D I SURE WILL!

I just managed to put down into words my definition of a good life this week. It is basically ;

"My definition of a good life is a life without any physical pain"

I am so grateful. SO grateful for having a well functioning body without feeling physical pain on a constant basis. Only if I'm eating stuff my body can't handle I'm filled with pain but that is usually my own choice. So THANK YOU! I am so grateful everyday for waking ut painless. And this is a life I wish for everyone. Hopefully we will get there someday.  Bliss, happiness and contentment definitely comes from within anyways but life without bodily pain sure is a golden ticket!!

Checked out a new Cocktail bar in Oslo this week. "Bar ISM". They have a photobooth. We took a lot of fliiiicks. Caroline Sandermoen is on my right. I'll tell you more about what shes up to these days someother time. 

Climate Change Is Releasing Deadly Viruses Back Into The Wild

Last year I wrote a piece about another dark side of climate change which is not too much talked about. When the ice melts, what happens? Well, it's not just the water levels rising high and the temperature increasing, but whatever has been trapped inside of it is released, and will be spreading around. Fast. Bacterias and viruses our generation has no knowledge about and possibly no resistance against, hence no vaccines or medicines to protect us. Hashem just posted this short video. Worth watching.

Week in Review - 21st of January 2018

I haven't been writing my usual week in review wrap up in months. But I guess its about time to start doing so again, at least to write a small piece. So, that's what I'm doing today by sharing Futurism "This Week In Science" Video. 2018 is certainly off to a jump start!

#BIOTECH

Good, good news. Y Combinator, one of the worlds leading accelerators are now starting their own Life Sciences Department, YC BIO, which will solely focus on curing aging. This means that they will accept, fund and develop longevity startups they believe in. YAS! I'm still positive that within 2050 we have a way to cure aging or at least live healthier and longer. 

Past Lives Recognition

fibionacci stairs

Is there such a thing as past lives? Have you ever thought of this as a possibility? Can you see yourselves in a different life? Perhaps you've had any weird visions coming to you that you can not seem to get a grip on why it's happening? Like a glimpse of feeling or memories, which you know didn't happen? Perhaps something that has been following you for your whole life? Have you ever met someone that you simply know you've met them before but which isn't the case? Or met someone you have a really really deep connection or belonging too when you really are strangers to eachother in this life?

Even though most people find it quite funny and hard to belive, I've always known deep within that there must be something to this "past life thing" some religious, spiritual and freaky people are talking about. There is no way that it's provable yet but perhaps in the future? We still do know very little of science and how it all is put together; this life, our minds, the universe and beyond. We even use only 10 % of our brain some people say, and we know even less of how it works than that.
My logical part of the brain, the part that is shaped by our society, of course are in doubt of all this but the wise and intuitive part of me knows it is true.. in a way.. If the flashes I see and the people I believe were a part of my previous life is real? Wow.. That would be just so magical if it really was true.. But at the moment it's just such vague visions. Why, why aren't the memories clear?
One day we will be able to figure it out, it might just take years and years, centuries, thousands of years. Perhaps AI will prove its true but we won't believe it cause we won't still be able to understand the way they show it to us?
I've never read much about it and never been interesting doing so, but perhaps that time has come to learn more? I also know this lady who claims to be able to do past life regression, help me go back in time and remember. A fortune teller.. What if she is really able to do so? Perhaps I should give it a try? I'm tempted. I'll update this post later if I do so.

Some friends of mine went to this fortune teller and what she said blew their minds. It was so accurate that it was not impossible being fake. This woman knew nothing about them before they came. Not even their names. She then told my friend exactly how both of his patents died. What the fuck? This guy is from Australia, there is no way to find this kind of info online etc. I’ve also been to a fortune teller, she knew nothin of me but used her tarot cards to litterally tell me who I was and tell me my story. I didnt open my mouth once, just in awe and astonishment.

Anyways, since I was a child And for as long as I can remember I’ve had these visuals and sensations of me waliking quietly in a forest at night on a brown horse. Its super quiet and I’m carefully looking and listening for potential dangers. I’ve always got a hunch from this being a past life. Being a spy in te woods or something, in the medieval ages or whenever. I have no idea but far back in the times. Pretty interesting, right? And, another thing following me like this is whenever I see or walk past a dog I see and feel it jump up and bite my left tigh, like real hard and not letting go. Quite a terrifyinh sight and perception. Thats why Ive never been to fond of dogs cause this memory is so strong and weirdly enough it hasn’t happen in this life. its the same with dark sea water. I’ve always been fearful of it. And ive never enjoyed going to the beach. And ive never understood why this is the case. That whenever I think of the dark sea I see this storm and dark blu scary water just waiting to eat me. I’m not afraid of drowning or anything ts just this strong weird sensation that intensly crawls back in an instant. Thats basically some of the stronges super natural sensation thats been a part of me forever and wont let go. And I believe the dog and the deep sea might be extreme experiences from past lives. So strong that I possibly died from it. I died from that dog biting me or leaving me with an infected wound. And on the deep see I drowned. I do not have any negative experiences with the visuals from the woods. Those are super positive and brings with them exitement whenever they enter my head and body. What do you guys think? Why do I have these continuous experiences poping into my head and body?

They say that not everyone has lived several lives before this one but many of us have.

There are also at least two people I feel Ive been connected to for many lives or whatever one can call it. perhaps just across time and space, that our atoms belong togethet or something might also be a thought. Oh well. Perhaps I got too supernatural in this post. But I find it kinda interesting. Eagerly waiting for quantum physics to tell the truth.

All this might also be an explanation of multiple universes. Or just be our molecules touching other peoples lives throughouy history. Or what do you think? Is it just nonsense? 

There is a thought thats been crossing my mind.. All the people that feel they are born in the wrong body witht wrong sex. What if they in their previous life were the opposite sex and they were so attached to their physical body in that life that their unconsiciousness did’t manage to let it go when they were reborn anew? That Something within just cant manage to rewire?  oh well..

2018, What's To Come For Us All?

Hashem Al-Ghaili(science nature), a person whom I follow on facebook who regularly posts great articles on future society and present discoveries within technology and science, published this video I've added below yesterday.
Yup, 2018 is right around the corner and its for sure going to be one exciting year if this is on the menu + more.

What do you wish to happen in the world and for humanity in 2018?
What about you own life? Whats your goals and wishes for the year to come?

Btw: here you can read about some of the mysteries in science that are yet to be solved. Perhaps we will get closer in 2018?

This Year in Science

2017 has been an extraordinary year in science, the breakthroughs we saw happening are now paving the way towards completely reshaping humanity's future. A lamb was created in an artificial womb, an embryo was edited, a new kind of matter was discovered and Chinese computer scientists made a quantum leap into teleportation + waaay more stuff. Science fiction is becoming our reality and its just the tip of the iceberg. Enjoy the findings, your life and the people you love's life is about to get an upgrade. Thats my opinion at least :)

I also found this documentary (below) on youtube about this year in science. I haven't watched it yet, but planning to. Hope its a good one!

 

What are your take on all of this? Do you like it or does it scare you?
What do you wish for to happen in science in 2018?

Foods That Resemble The Body Parts They're Good For

Wait, what?

Perhaps you've never thought or never even heard about this before, that there exists foods in nature that mirror the body parts they provide nutrients for? Or perhaps you've heard some mentions here and there about walnuts being good for the brain but never really had your curiosity triggered into indulging in the wisdom of earths magic?
There is all this forgotten/hidden yet essential information about our existence and mother nature that we never learn anything about while growing up... Such wisdom, such knowledge, all lost. Gone.

Anyhow, I find it extremely fascinating that some of the food growing right next to us actually look like our organs and not only that, the organ that the food resemble happens to be beneficial to this exact organ. Wait what? 
I must say, after my opinion, nature is simply way too perfect to be random. Don't you think? Seems like someone is trying to give us a message. No?
Is it really such a simple message that we're apparently too ignorant to receive it?

Well, I thought I'd write about this topic cause I'd like to put everything I've ever learned about that topic in one place and memorise it. It's handy to know, then you get a sense of what to eat to strengthen the different body parts, and perhaps this time I will actually remember to eat accordingly? 
I also find it in my duty to spread this knowledge as it seems not too many people out there are aware of this. Neither Youtube nor the web is flowing with videos or articles on knowledge. No words. Oh wait? Is it because of the food industry? Or the pharmaceutical industry? We won't know for sure but something is quite odd about this.

Though these healthy foods are beneficial to the whole body, the list below is a fun reminder of what to eat to target specific areas

carrot-eye.jpg

Carrots. If you examine a slice a carrot you can avoid seeing that it looks quite like a human eye.
And, according to science, eating carrots greatly enhances blood flow to the eyes. Carrot gets their orange color from a plant chemical called beta-carotene, which reduces the risk of developing cataracts. The chemical also protects against macular degeneration an age-related sight problem that affects one in four individuals over the age of 65.

tomato-heart.jpg

A Tomato has four chambers and is red in color. Our heart can be described the same. It's red and has four chambers. Research has confirmed that tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and it is indeed pure heart and blood food.

grapes.jpg

Grapes resembles our lungs. The lungs are made of branches of ever-smaller airways that finish up with tiny branches of tissue called alveoli. These structures allow oxygen to pass from the lungs to the blood stream. A diet high in fresh grapes has shown to reduce the risk of lung cancer and emphysema. Grape seeds also contain a chemical called proanthocyanidin, which is thought to reduce the severity of asthma triggered by allergy.

grapefruit.jpg

Grapefruits, Oranges, and other citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts. The similarity between round citrus fruits––like lemons and grapefruit––and breasts may be more than coincidental. "Grapefruit contains substances called limonoids, which have been shown to inhibit the development of cancer in lab animals and in human breast cells," says Dr. Moulavi.

olive_ovary.jpg

Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries. An Italian study found that women whose diets included a lot of olive oil had a 30% lower risk of ovarian cancer. The reasons are unclear, but the healthy fats in the oil may help suppress genes predisposed to causing cancer.

fig.jpg

Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Studies have shown that Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the sperm count as well as overcoming male sterility.

advocado-uterus.jpg

Avocados and Pears are good for the health and functioning of the womb and cervix of the female and look just like these organs. Modern research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances the birth hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight and can even prevent cervical cancer. It even takes exactly nine months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit, just like a human baby! There are said to be over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods.

celery_bone_structure.jpg

Celery, Rhubarb, Bok-choy and more look just like bones structure. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are made up of 23% sodium and these foods have sodium in them. If you don’t have enough sodium in your diet the body pulls it from the bones, making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

walnut-brain.jpg

A Walnut certainly looks like a little brain with a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are similar to those of the neo-cortex. Scientists claim that walnuts help in developing over three dozen neuron-transmitters within the brain enhancing the signaling and encouraging new messaging link between the brain cells. Walnuts help warding off dementia. They also extract and break down the protein based plaques associated with Alzheimer’s diseases, according to a study by Dr. James Joseph of Tuft University in Boston.

kidney_beans.jpg

Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function by providing a variety of minerals and vitamins. All though, a catch I find odd is that if your kidneys are diseased, you actually might need to moderate your intake of kidney beans.

sweet-pancreas.jpg

Sweet Potatoes resemble the pancreas and can actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics. The oblong sweet potato bears a strong resemblance to the pancreas, and also promotes healthy function in the organ. Sweet potatoes are high in beta-carotene, which is a potent antioxidant that protects all tissues of the body, including the pancreas, from damage associated with cancer or aging.

onion-cell.jpg

Onions look like our body's cells. Research shows onions clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. 

ginger-stomach.jpg

Ginger looks like the stomach and it also aids in digestion. Indians and Chinese have been using it for over 5000 years to calm stomach and cure nausea, and motion sickness. It also slows down the growth rate of bowel tumors

mushroom_ear.jpg

A Mushrooms when sliced in half resembles the shape of the human ear. Mushrooms improve hearing abilities, since they contain Vitamin D, which is healthy for bones, especially the 3 tiny bones in the ear that transmit sound to the brain.

broccoli.jpg

Broccoli believe it or not but it actually looks like cancer cells. A team of researchers at US National Cancer Institute found if a weekly serving of broccoli was enough to reduce the risk of prostate cancer by 45%..

ginseng.jpg

Ginseng root looks like a human body, and it is a holistic cure for almost everything.

red-wine.jpg

Red wine, what does it look like? Blood. Wine is rich in antioxidants and polyphenols, including powerful resveratrol. And this apparently loads up on the healthy stuff that protects against destructive things in the blood, like LDL cholesterol. There's also a blood-thinning compound in red wine, so it reduces blood clots, which are associated with stroke and heart disease. 


FASCINATING!

Why You Should Apply Some Stoicism To Your Life

In other words; We can't be in control over what happens but we can be in control over how we approach things. We can take control over our own minds; our thoughts, emotions and actions and be the captain steering the boat in different waters and weather. You'll have to distance yourself from your thoughts and emotions and embrace life as it happens with calmness. This is how you'll achieve peace of mind. A strong sense of self awareness is needed for this to be possible.

The name stoicism comes from the stoa Poikile the decorated public colonnade where the philosophers gathered for discussion. 

The Stoics thought that (practical) ethics was the most important component of their philosophy: it was about how to live one’s life in the best possible way.


To be honest, it's just a few years since I heard of this philosophy(even though I've been living this mindset my whole life) and boy every time I think of psychology and how to deal with our own minds and the world around us I think why the fuck didn't I learn anything about this in school. So frustrating, and still is not taught.
Well, I've been and am a firm believer in and follower of this mindset since as long as I can remember with an exception of a few years in my teens but since the age of 19 I have been extremely conscious about how I treat my mind and body, myself and others. To say it as cliché as always, I am my house which I can not escape so I better be gentle. Really, I have to treat it well or else I'll suffer like crazy and life is too short to do that.

Stoicism has just a few central teachings. It sets out to remind us of how unpredictable the world can be. How brief our moment of life is. How to be steadfast, calm, strong, and in control of yourself not matter what happens. And finally, that the source of our dissatisfaction lies in our impulsive dependency on our reflexive senses rather than logic.

So, the stoics try to deal with the world as it is, while pursuing self improvement trough four cardinal virtues:


Wisdom:
Practical wisdom is the ability to navigate complex situations in a logical informed and calme manner.

Courage:
Face daily challenges with clarity and integrity.

Justice
Treating others with fairness even when they have done wrong.

Temper:
The expertise of self restraint and moderation in all aspects of life.

If this doesn't sound like a great philosophy to live life by I'm not sure which planet you're on. Then it is definitely YOU who need to implement this pattern to your daily habits. Too many people these days suffer more from their mind than what reality tells them. Life is all about perspective and if you do not realise it, good luck. Perhaps you'll figure out on your death bed but then its too late. If you are one of those who take life seriously, are easily tempered and blame others for your misfortune and misery its time to start rewire your mind. Life is way better being happy and content every minute every day, always. Embrace what happens with gratitude, meaning, purpose and love, and you'll end up with a peaceful mind.

It’s a tool that we can use to become better in our craft, better friends and better people.

Logotheraphy is also worth taking notice of, its based on stoic principles and is a concept framed by Viktor Frankel who survived a concentration camp.  Logotherapy is a term derived from the words “logos,” a Greek word that translates as “meaning,” and therapy, which is defined as treatment of a condition, illness, or neurosis. It teaches that you can find meaning in every situation you're in, even the most miserable ones. The theory is founded on the belief that human nature is motivated by the search for a life purpose.

Check out the video below for a brief introduction made by TED.

Tim Ferriss is such a fan and brag about it whenever he gets the chance, which is great. He spreads the word. He also have made a list of great Stoicism resources. Check it out here.

How to apply it by Tim Ferriss

Is God A Mathematician?

I believe, if there is such a thing as a God it must be a super intelligent force who either wanted to have fun, experiment or just try out something new when he created this universe of ours.

According to scientists the universe is basically too perfect to be random.

Perhaps we live, as Elon Musks says, in a simulation, that everything already is computerised? I for certain believe that humans did not invent AI but that it was already here. It's the intelligence of the universe we just haven't yet been able to tap into it. We've been to dumb obviously. It's the foundation of everything. 

Would You Enjoy Living In A Metaverse?

Would you enjoy living in a metaverse? A life where you choose your reality at any time of the day? Where you are the designer of your own destiny? Where you're in complete control, yes, a life where you are the hero? A life where you have the power to make everything be like whatever you want it to be? And be whomever you want to be?
Through mixed reality tools it will feel real, you can go wherever you want whenever with whomever. Sounds like magic right? Well, futurists says it's a certain probability.
What would such a society be like? When the whole world gets connected to the cloud and come online in such a metaverse? Will it set humanity free? Will we no longer be trapped in our misery when we can fully express and be ourselves?
We will be able to escape our bodily limitations, yes, escape the worst jail ever made;
our biological body.

Well, whatever makes life more exciting and feeds my curiosity I'm up for it. And If we are going to live for a looong long time, even turn immortal it really has to happen. If not we might even die from boredom or commit suicide because of it. And we also need to get out in space, manipulate matter and crack all the codes of science then life is about to get really really exciting.

"A virtual-reality space in which users can interact with a computer-generated environment and other users." Wikipedia

One thought for you;
we can't prove that we aren't live in a metaverse already, can we? Perhaps we are and have always been just software? That this what we think is real isn't. That is all just simulation made by an advanced civilizations long time ago.
Well, we wont fint out before we get smart enough, will we?

Science is magic, magic is science.

What is real? And is real actually a thing? If it's all just simulated isn't that just reality then? What define reality must come up for debate sooner or later. What if all there is is a simulation? Or must there somewhere be something out there which is not then? 

Hmm

Week in Review - 4th of June

The world is bananas, even though we live in one of the best times in history and loads of great things are happening, there still is some crazy shit going on. There is always someone who just wants to mess up. Another terrorist attack happened Saturday evening in London... wtf? Just ten days has gone by since the Manchester attack (btw tonight there is the memorial concert with Bieber etc..) 7 dead and 48 wounded. I guess ISIS soon will claim the attack. Gooood, seriously. Wtf. As I write this I'm watching the memorial concert Arianna Grande put together. She is a great girl, going back to Manchester and bringing top pop artists with her, Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Pharell Williams etc. Its a beautiful concert full of love.
Not only that but this week Trump just decided to pull out of the Paris Agreement. Seriously, I have to laugh.. Out.. LOUD. At least Elon Musk made it clear that he no longer wants to be seen in the white house no more.. 

So what else exciting has happened?

 

SPACE

NASA’s First Mission to Touch the Sun Launches in 2018
Parker Solar Probe will be sent into the corona of the sun, NASA hopes to get some answers on why the corona, the top layer of the sun's gaseous atmosphere (visible only during a solar eclipse), hotter than its surface?

 

TRANSPORT

This is so inspiring and should definitely considered asap from other world leaders too.
India will only sell electric cars by 2030!

Poor air quality kills 1.2 million people in India every year, so clearly they finally had to do something.

 

HEALT & MEDICINE

These Color-Changing Tattoos Monitor Your Health, No Wearable Needed

A ban on human/animal genetic hybrids was just lifted. What if an animal is born with humanlike consciousness and intelligence? Wont let that happen will we?


ROBOTICS & AUTOMATION

The worlds smallest hard drive is a single atom..!

 

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Is it time to redefine work yet!? 
A growing number of people think their job is useless according to world economic forum. So, what is work anyway?

A new internet is already on its way

When will we be able to manipulate matter?

Was Jesus An Extraterrestrial?

Tomorrow it's whit Monday, another work free day and once more a christian holiday celebrating one of the biggest celebs ever in history. This time we celebrate pentecost, that the Holy Spirit came to the apostles.
For years I've been wondering; was Jesus an extraterrestial being with complete power of science? Because if you think about where our future is heading we will actually be able to do what Jesus did and more. We will become "gods" with the power we get when we can manipulate matter and play along with all that science has to offer. We will become the Gods of the Gods of the Gods Gods. If we manage to tag along of course. If we chose and are able to merge with technology and become supersmart AI ourselves. 
So perhaps the human race took a left turn when we were visited by aliens, or actually someone outside of earth wanted us to move in a different direction then what we already where on.
My mind can think about these topics 24/7. Its so entertaining. So exciting!
What do you think?

Ray Kurzweils Predictions

 Transhumanists yup ineed

Transhumanists yup ineed

Ray Kurzweil, one of my favorite thinkers, has some interesting thoughts about the future and I came across a nice sum up of a few of the events in an article on inverse.

What do you think?

I've copy pasted from the inverse article. 

8. Ubiquitous Wifi Access

By 2019, almost everyone will be able to access wireless internet from almost anywhere on Earth at all times. That’s because, as Kurzweil describes in his 2005 book The Singularity Is Near (TSIN), we’ll have “very high-bandwidth wireless internet access woven in our clothing.”

7. An Asteroid Won’t Kill Us

Within a few decades, space technology will be able to fully protect the Earth from asteroid collisions. “We don’t see [... a large asteroid visitor] on the horizon,” he writes in TSIN, “and it is virtually certain that by the time such a danger occurs, our civilization will readily destroy the intruder before it destroys us.”

6. Working From Home with VR

Within a few decades, virtual reality will be fully immersive, making physical workspaces obsolete. Instead, we’ll all telecommute to work, and populations will become more decentralized because we won’t need to live in any particular location for our jobs. This will also somewhat alleviate the threat of terrorist attacks.

6. Don’t Worry About Disease

Most diseases will go away by the 2020’s. We’ll be able to reverse engineer the brain to fix neurological issues (ex. Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, strokes). Nanobots will not only exist by then, but be smart enough to combat diseases better than our current medical technology.

5. Virtual Reality = Reality

By the late 2020s, it will be impossible to distinguish reality from virtual reality. The implications of this are endless, but one of the things Kurzweil mentions in TSIN is how this will affect your sex life. “In virtual reality,” he writes, “we can be a different person both physically and emotionally. In fact, other people (such as your romantic partner) will be able to select a different body for you than you might select for yourself (and vice versa).” People won’t need sex dolls to sleep with Scarlett Johansson lookalikes.

4. Computers Surpass Humans Really Soon

By 2029, a computer will pass the Turing test.

3. Humans Become Machines

By the early 2030s, technology will be able to copy human brains and put them onto electronic mechanisms. That means no more flesh, blood, or bones — just a scan of your brain on a machine — and will enable humans to take any form, from a box to a bird. It will also mean that a “human” won’t die in any traditional sense, and that it will be infinitely replicable. In TSIN, Kurzweil says our immortality will work like computer software: “When we change from an older computer to a newer one, we don’t throw all our files away. Rather, we copy them and reinstall them on the new hardware.”

2. Earth Will Be Made of Computers

Sometime past 2045, our planet will be entirely made up of computers. With the exception of some nature reserves for the vulgar plebeians who want to live in a “natural state.” Fools.

1. The Universe Will Be a Supercomputer

By 2099, machines will be creating planet-sized computers, and eventually we’ll make the entire universe into an enormous supercomputer. Fingers crossed that a rogue humanoid doesn’t destroy the whole thing with a virus!

Week In Review - May 14th

Week 3 of Office X is over. 7 more to go. Damn, time flies. I've had one of the best weeks in a while. Office X pluss reconnecting with the startup community. That San Francisco feeling entered my body and stuck for a bit. It's about to slowly fade but.. It was there! Times them are a-changing here in the smallest of Oslo.

So here is the wrap of what I've got across this week :)

AUTOMATION

This is why you want a robot coworker - watch the movie below.

TRANSPORTATION

Uber is set to deploy flying taxis in Dallas-Fort Worth and Dubai by 2020 :D

The new ET3's tube transportation concept, which is called the "mag-lev limo." would be capable of traveling from New York to Beijing in 2 hours. Amaziiiiing.
“ET3: we call it a mag-lev limo, where it’s a car-sized vehicle that operates in a network of tubes much [like] cars on a freeway,” Oster told TechRepublic at the 2017 Smart Cincy Summit. “But, it would be international and global in scope.Our vision is being able to travel from, say, here in Cincinnati to the Taj Mahal in under three hours for 50 bucks,” Oster added. Essentially, it’s a network of tubes that serve as a “freeway” which can be accessed via various points along its many routes."

Meet Horizon Public Transport, another way to be transported in the future. Whoho!

Elon Musk: Tesla's Solar Roofs Will Be Cheaper Than Regular Roofs and Have "Infinity Warranty". Well isn't that aaaamazing news!
This week, Elon Musk announced that Tesla's solar roofs would be on sale starting now!

Germany breaks a record for renewable energy, generating 85% of its power from renewable sources on April 30.The country expects such days to become the norm as it continues its push toward clean energy adoption.


FASHION

Omg I cant wait for the time where its normal not to own anything and if you need something you just print it on demand. Perhaps its usual to have your own 3Dprinter or you'll find one pretty close through an sharing economy app.
Well, the first awesome one is about to enter the market. Kniterate. Check out their kickstarter campaign here.

Week In Review - April 30th

I haven't had that much time to read this week due to my new (amazing!!) job. I've learned a ton but mostly from my own experiences. I held my first podcast and did some smaller interviews, and yes indeed went to Trondheim I've been researching a lot and I've actually done some sweet social media work. I shared my Trondheim interview on Facebook. And I've reached 10k on 35 hours. Not too bad! The wonders of Social Media outshine everything.

So what's happened this week out and about in the whole wide world?
Well, this week Trump celebrated his 100th day as a President. How do you think he is doing?

I hope this sparks some good reflections and conversations and I wish you a good week :)
 

TRANSPORTATION

Uber just promised flying taxis to life in the 3 years. Incredible. Read more here

And yeah, in case you missed it, Elon Musk has revealed what his Boring Machine Company is up too. He is officially digging tunnels under LA. Say good bye to traffic.

 

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

A robot just taught another robot to read. Times they are a-changening.

 

Within 30 years, your CEO probably most likely actually will be a machine. At least according to clever Jack Ma, The Chinese billionaire and the founder and chairman of popular e-commerce service Alibaba. He has had some accurate predictions earlier and if I could give my vote in this case thats what I believe as well. I will even go further.. Believing that one day our Presidents and Prime Ministers and other leaders will actually be machines too. No doubt. They're smarter, faster, has better memory and can work 24/7. And are not even driven by their inner feelings. They just follow logic basically. Or a logic they will understand but we won't. We would just have to trust them.
“The Time Magazine cover for the best CEO of the year very likely will be a robot. It remembers better than you, it counts faster than you, and it won’t be angry with competitors.”
Perhaps this will be the new saying, "Why trust a man when you have a machine"
 

FUTURE SOCIETY

Next List 2017: 20 People Who Are Creating the Future
"Microsoft will build computers even more sleek and beautiful than Apple’s. Robots will 3D print cool shoes that are personalised just for you. (And you’ll get them in just a few short days.) Neural networks will take over medical diagnostics, and Snapchat will try to take over the entire world. The women and men in these pages are the technical, creative, idealistic visionaries who are bringing the future to your doorstep."

I'm really pro the Venus project (Watch video below) I've been it since I first heard of it. I haven't yet share what this is all about with you so in my feed this week the video popped up again so I thought I should share it. It's bruning man way of an economic system. Yep NO money. A world without money. It functions very well in Burning Man. All we need to do is alter our mindset towards how a society structure is "supposed to" be.

CRISPR Pill May Be Key in Fight Against Antibiotic Resistance

It's no news that lack of sleep may lead to mental disorders. So, scientists are constantly searching for ways to improve our sleep. This blanket, Gravity, I totally believe in. It's actually a thing I do myself if I want to assure myself a good night sleep, I find as many doves and blankets as I can so that I can get lots of pressure on my body. So, MIT studies have shown that it can treat anxiety while you sleep! If you suffer from sleep disabilities and other psychological issues go buy this! The science behind it

EARTH & ENERGY

The Very Hungry Plastic-Eating Caterpillar
"People produced 311 million tons of plastic in 2014, and that figure is set to double in the next 20 years. Around 40 percent of that consists of polyethylene, in the form of plastic bags, containers, and other products, much of which ends up in landfills. Could the waxworms help to break down that mountain of persistent trash?"

BRAIN

Facebook Launches "Moon Shot" Effort to Decode Speech Direct From the Brain

"If all goes according to plan—and that’s a big if—Building 8’s neural prosthetic would strap onto a person’s head, use an optical technique to decode intended speech and then type those thoughts on a computer or smartphone at up to 100 words per minute. This would be an order-of-magnitude faster than today’s state-of-the-art speech decoders."
