This is a simple 3D render space scene in Blender 3D of an Ethereum crystal on the surface of an asteroid. Just playing around with light and glow and shadow along with some terrain sculpting and texturing. It looks ok I think, not quite what I had in mind when I first started modeling it but I think it turned out ok.
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
This revelation explains all those great mysteries of old. Ancient knowledge, disconnected conundrums, curious coincidences, and suspicious secrets, hidden from view, yet sensible, all lurk under the surface of the deep sea of history, our perception of existence. Deep and dark secrets drowned in vaguery, obscured in the shadowy depths of the empty void of human ignorance and delusion. We seek answers to things which we truly do not wish to know, for if we discover the actual truth, it will by all accounts, destroy our feeble barriers of bliss, awaken our sleeping terrors and thrust us into a nightmare [READ MORE]
