ELECTRIC BIKES MAKE THE BEST APOCALYPSE SURVIVAL TRANSPORT!

2021-10-06T19:54:36+00:00By |Blog, Science, Technology|

ELECTRIC BIKES MAKE THE BEST APOCALYPSE SURVIVAL TRANSPORT! Seriously. I've been saying this for a long time. No one listens to me. An example of no one listening to me was 30+ years ago when I was in my teens growing up on the St Johns river in Jax FL. I wanted a kayak to fish out of. I talked to EVERYONE I knew, including all the boat dealers and my dad and I wanted a kayak so badly but no one would listen to me. They asked me what I was going to do with it. I said "FISH [READ MORE]

Humans Are Primitive And Stupid

2021-09-26T15:20:29+00:00By |Ethics, Evolution, Ideas, Philosophy, Politics, Rants, Society|

I really hate stupid. Like for real. It's beyond my ability to tolerate it. It's like nails on a chalkboard for me. No...it's worse than that. It's as bad as death itself. It's powered by ignorance and delusion. It's not that all stupid people do not have the capacity to be smart. Some are just naturally stupid, low-IQ, idiots. But...there are those who are willfully ignorant and uneducated and who refuse to educate themselves and learn critical thinking skills and who are too lazy to think, this is stupid. This is the kind of stupid that is as bad as [READ MORE]

Technological Immortality Is Achievable

2021-09-06T17:23:41+00:00By |AI, Androids, Cyborgs, Philosophy, Science, Technology|

Technological immortality. We have the ability to become immortal with technology. Why are we not pursuing that in a big way? There are a few companies doing it, but it's not a BIG thing. It's not something you see everywhere. Why not? I don't get it. I don't understand why people would not want themselves and their family and friends to be able to live forever. Is the world that terrible of a place they just don't want to live that long? WTF is going on!? I seriously have trouble comprehending why people would not want to live forever. Or [READ MORE]

To Explore The Universe Humans Must Evolve Beyond Human

The more I think about this impact problem AND the time dilation problem, the more I realize that we will likely not travel to another star system anytime soon, if ever. At least as humans. I hate to say it...but the more I learn about the universe and evolution and everything, the more problems with interstellar travel become more obvious. Special relativity is a bitch, but it's still not as bad as the impact problem. People say 'space is empty"...there are millions of miles between objects. The odds that you'll hit something is very low. We can travel to the [READ MORE]

Interstellar Travel Is Impossibly Dangerous and Pointless

2021-09-03T03:23:57+00:00By |Blog|

This right here is why interstellar travel is impossibly dangerous. In other words...there is almost zero chance you could travel between star systems at the speed of light without hitting a piece of dust or debris the size of a grain of sand. If the kinetic energy from a grain of sand at 99.9% the speed of light is enough to wipe out north America, then your little space ship stand NO CHANCE against even the tiniest dust particle at or near the speed of light. This means speed of light travel is pointlessly, impossibly dangerous. You would not survive. [READ MORE]

Is The Universe Filled With Dead Worlds, Or Does Biological Simply Life Evolve Into Machines?

2021-09-02T18:09:33+00:00By |AI, Aliens, Androids, Evolution, Philosophy, Physics, Science, Universe|

Perhaps. Perhaps not. I think it's possible, maybe even likely, other civilizations on other worlds simply evolve into machines. People might think that's crazy now, but if you look back at history and the advancement of technology, humans (biological life forms) are only evolved to live on planets. They are NOT evolved to live in space. To live in space and intelligent species will likely evolve into machines. At that point faster than light travel will become pointless, needless even, because the civilization that evolves to that point will no longer have a need for faster than light travel because [READ MORE]

Where Is Everyone?

2021-08-16T20:36:03+00:00By |Aliens|

"Where is everyone?". This simple yet deeply profound existential question was asked by the renowned Italian-American physicist Enrico Fermi one day at lunch with colleagues. He was referring of course to aliens. More specifically he was asking why humans have not yet discovered evidence of extraterrestrial life outside of Earth given the fact we've been observing and studying the universe and searching for signs of alien civilizations for so long, yet have we still have found no evidence of their existence. Given the age of the universe at 13.8 billion years old, that is more than enough time for many [READ MORE]

How To Write A Novel In 3 Months: The Simple Math

2021-08-09T17:44:20+00:00By |How-To|

So you want to write a novel but you don't know where to start or how to get from word 1 to word 100k to finish your book. In the famous advice from Stephen King, (one of the most publish famous writers of all time) he suggests writing 6 pages per day. But that's a little vague and confusing because the number of words per page varies greatly based on the font you use, font size, paragraph length, sentence length, and mostly, whether you double-space or single space. All of these have a great affect on how much content you [READ MORE]

Humanity University I’m tired of sitting around watching greed destroy our humanity and not doing anything about poverty but make it worse. I’m tired of all the blame game bullshit of people pointing fingers and not taking responsibility for their actions. I’m tired of the selfishness and ignorance of poverty. I’m tired of the greedy rich and uneducated ignorant blaming poor people for being poor. I’m tired of all the poverty and hunger and homelessness and healthcare problems and educational issues, student loan debt and the sheer lack of anyone willing to do anything about the massive poverty problem we [READ MORE]

Evolution holds on to successful guesses: The Inevitability of Life in the Universe

2021-08-09T17:44:48+00:00By |Aliens|

Evolution holds on to successful guesses. This is why life is inevitable in the universe. The improbability of life developing independently in the universe is "not zero". And though circular logic, we and every other living thing on this planet are living proof that life is possible in the universe (and even more so when you consider how un-special our planet is). It would be an extremely arrogant fallacy to assume we're the only planet with life, or even the only planet with intelligent life. Is it possible we’re the only planet with life in the universe? Sure. But it’s [READ MORE]

Together We Save The World

2021-08-09T17:45:16+00:00By |Philosophy|

The level of greed and ignorance in this country and around the world is really pissing me off. I have friends from all over the world in different countries, all different ethnicities and cultures, and backgrounds. Most of us see what's going on in the USA and abroad and are sickened by the level of greed and ignorance that plagues our world. We know what's possible, if only we would WORK TOGETHER for the greater good while also helping individuals with their daily lives through outreach, charity, philanthropy, education, etc. Basically we believe in altruism. We believe in humanity first. [READ MORE]
