As someone who is part of the singularity community,
I've been ready this whole time to upload my
brain/consciousness/whatever to the Internet, if not that then I'm definately ready to upload my conciousness into a machine.
It's obviously time. I think this sort of stuff should have been done
a long time ago. I want to be the first! I wouldn't care if I died in
the process and it was a total and complete failure, if I just got the
chance to be the first. There's nothing more important than the first,
the first is forever immortalized in his(or her)story.

Why do I want to do this?

With a digital consciousness, I would "live forever" just no longer in
the material world. I guess I would have no way of knowing if it was
me or not, I wonder if I would continue to "experience" my same "life"
in that "other form" of "reality."

The pros seem to outweigh the cons overwhelmingly. I would be
accessible to everyone, or maybe I could even become a virus,
infecting all government computers, simultaneously shutting them all
down at one single point in time.

To me, it seems like I would be akin to the
wizard of oz, in many respects, I would be able to manifest whatever I
want in cyberspace and in the digital landscape that is becoming ever
more clear? Is that really a way to turn nothing into something?

We have already evolved and progressed so much yet we still remain
trapped in the past. Our delusions, lies, hatred, de-evolution,
selfishness, and vices will be incomprehensible to a human from 100
years in the future. Everywhere I go I already see neanderthals
everywhere (they're already in charge of the government), it makes
sense that the future generations will be more evolved anyways.

Surprising Science
  • Orangutan mothers wait to sound a danger alarm to avoid tipping off predators to their location
  • It took a couple of researchers crawling around the Sumatran jungle to discover the phenomenon
  • This ability may come from a common ancestor

China’s artificial sun reaches fusion temperature: 100 million degrees

In a breakthrough for nuclear fusion research, scientists at China's Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) reactor have produced temperatures necessary for nuclear fusion on Earth.

Surprising Science
  • The EAST reactor was able to heat hydrogen to temperatures exceeding 100 million degrees Celsius.
  • Nuclear fusion could someday provide the planet with a virtually limitless supply of clean energy.
  • Still, scientists have many other obstacles to pass before fusion technology becomes a viable energy source.

Understand your own mind and goals via bullet journaling

Journaling can help you materialize your ambitions.

  • Organizing your thoughts can help you plan and achieve goals that might otherwise seen unobtainable.
  • The Bullet Journal method, in particular, can reduce clutter in your life by helping you visualize your future.
  • One way to view your journal might be less of a narrative and more of a timeline of decisions.
