To Explore The Universe Humans Must Evolve Beyond Human

2021-09-05T18:45:16+00:00By |AI, Aliens, Astronomy, Cosmology, Cyborgs, Evolution, Inspiration, Philosophy, Physics, Science|

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]

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]

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]

A note on alien invasion

2021-09-06T19:00:01+00:00By |Aliens, Astronomy, Blog, Evolution, Science, Science Fiction, Technology, Universe|

A note on alien invasion. While writing my scifi apocalyptic novel series I realized something and that got me to thinking. People who love scifi may already know this. If an alien invasion were to happen, we would most likely not know it until it's too late. Even if we did see them coming (which would be nearly impossible given our current technology) any alien civilization that has the ability to travel between solar systems (interstellar travel) would almost certainly also have technology that would destroy us before we could react. Be it weapons of mass destruction, or even weaponized [READ MORE]

Is Reality a Simulation?

2021-09-06T19:00:01+00:00By |AI, Aliens, Astronomy, Cosmology, Economics, Evolution, Philosophy, Physics, Science, Science Fiction, Simulation Theory, Technology, Universe|

Yeah, tell me again how we're NOT in a simulation...go ahead, I'm listening. Lookup Moore's Law, understand how fast technology advances, now fast forward 100 years, 200, 500, even 1000 years. We're already to the point of creating simple AI, and soon will have the ability to create advanced AI and from there superintelligent AI which will be trillions of times smarter than humans. Meaning, if humans are creating such hyper realistic 3D models and in-game physics and procedurally generated virtual reality environments now, what will AI create in the future? What if that already happened and we are already [READ MORE]

Could Great Voids in the Universe Be Evidence of Type III Alien Civilizations?

2021-08-09T17:49:11+00:00By |Aliens|

Throughout the universe there exists massive voids, billions of light years across, where no or very few galaxies exist. Voids could be evidence of a giant technologically advanced species (most probably machines themselves) that built not Dyson Spheres, but giant galaxy sized brains/computers. (Matrioshka Brain) This makes it possible to avoid the "waste heat" problem by capturing the waste heat and reusing it, essentially making the stars/galaxies invisible. Which would appear to us as a void. This is a hypothesis of course, and a very speculative one at that. The waste heat problem seems like a big problem, until you [READ MORE]

Why Biological Aliens Likely Won’t Travel Throughout The Universe

2021-09-06T19:04:54+00:00By |AI, Aliens, Astronomy, Blog, Cosmology, Evolution, Ideas, Inspiration, Mystery, Philosophy, Physics, Science, Technology, Universe|

Why Biological Aliens Likely Won’t Travel Throughout The Universe The dangers of Interstellar travel make interstellar travel forces biological life to evolve into technological life; or stay home. The hypothesis is based on simple physics. The limitations and fragility of biological life when considered relative to the universe and the many dangers to biological life the universe presents causes biological life to evolve into technological life so that they may travel to other star systems.  Sure, carbon based biological life forms can in fact travel to other star systems, but it would take generations. It could not be done in [READ MORE]

If aliens ever visit earth, odds are they won’t be biological

2021-08-09T17:50:30+00:00By |Aliens|

If intelligent aliens ever visit earth, odds are they won’t be biological. Intelligent, technologically advanced aliens capable of interstellar travel, whether via generation ships (spaceships that travel for hundreds, thousands or tens of thousands of years; i.e. many generations; hence the term “generation ships”), or by teleportation, wormhole, hyperspace, or some other FTL (faster than light) travel, will not be biological. For long. We assume mistakenly, that if intelligent aliens ever visit earth, that they will be biological, possibly humanoid, bipedal, anthropomorphic. I hypothesize that they will not be biological at all. And...I may have just figured out that Fermi [READ MORE]

The Likelihood of Immortality

2021-09-06T19:00:01+00:00By |AI, Aliens, Androids, Blog, Cyborgs, Economics, Evolution, Philosophy, Physics, Science, Science Fiction, Technology, Universe|

THE LIKELIHOOD OF IMMORTALITY: This is one of my ramblings about the possibility and likelihood of technological immortality based on statistical probability, Moore's Law, science, physics, evolution and everything. We'll start with the tech. LIFE EXTENSION MEDTECH:  Pharmaceuticals - Drugs. Mainly these are merely treatments for symptoms or preventative maintenance, not cures for diseases. Although there could be a “fountain of youth” type drug that allows a humanoid (or any carbon based biological entity) to survive very long periods of time. Though not immortal, the being (human or alien) could essentially live forever IF cellular repair and replacement could be [READ MORE]

We are not alone in the universe

2021-08-09T17:54:58+00:00By |Aliens|

Look, I know it's speculation, but, we are not alone in the universe. We can't say 100% for sure yet because we have not discovered life outside of earth, yet. However, we don't need 100% certainty to hypothesize accurately with a high statistical probability of being correct, that life is not just common throughout the universe, but moreover, statistics suggest it's inevitable. I wrote a hypothesis a while back called "The Inevitable Life Argument" which posits that given the scientific knowledge we have now about ourselves, our solar system, the galaxy, physics, chemistry, biology, evolution, time and space, that we [READ MORE]

Most alien civilizations probably destroy themselves

2021-08-09T17:55:17+00:00By |Aliens|

Most alien civilizations probably destroy themselves. The Great Filter is probably technology combined with aggression and greed. It's likely we will also destroy ourselves before we reach evolutionary maturity. Uniting humans as a species may not be possible without some clear and present immediate existential danger. There are too many different religions, governments, political parties, cultural and societal barriers which prevent unification. Humans are not equally educated and hold numerous belief systems which are contrary to species level unification. As long as political parties, money, and theistic religions exist, humans will likely never unite as one species. Nuclear weapons can [READ MORE]
