I'm not against the elites or those in power who support globalism or nationalism (except for those who own Big Oil). I do have trust in them to an extent but even that I find ironic. It's conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones (Infowars) and the media particularly Fox news that are contaminating the minds of people. It's people like Jon Stewart of Bill Maher that keeps the sanity of the people. lol. But that's my personal opinion.
THE Truth with a capital "T" is written by the historians. If you stand back and look at our culture, both the plebeians and the patricians want the wealth of industry. They don't want to worry about efficiency and they are quite happy to have their children pay for their indulgences. Some are more indulgent than others, but the great ages are only defined by technologies that change the rules. The loss of fossil fuels will change the rules if other energy technologies are not there to replace them.

For no other reason than our accumulated knowledge will eclipse our ability to exploit that knowledge, our entire point of view will change. Imagine being able to build rockets to Mars, but not having the energy reserves to attempt such a flight without lives being sacrificed to do so. We already attempt conservation, but we have yet to put a human cost to the use of resources.

I think that will define the next great age.

Wow, you really are stuck in the past. We can build a rocket to Mars, we send them there all the time. Last one had a revolutionary rover, the one just before that explored on of the deepest canyons on Mars.

We could send humans, just .... they'd die before getting there. Mostly because we couldn't send them with enough food, oxygen, and water ... well we can recycle water now so it's just food and oxygen.

But humankind (maybe homo erectus too) has always wondered how it all came to be. Birth was a given though.
In fact we should be celebrating human creativity instead of being stuck in the binding (religere-binding hence religion) and theological concepts that are not relevant untill your dead.
Maat the questions are directed to HG. Holy Ghost.

<quoted text>The Big Bang is a theory! The Bible is a story. Dark energy is a guess. How did life start? Lets see, if the Bible is a fable than somewhere out in a distant galaxy an alien evolved, developed over eons and transformed into pure energy able to warp time and space in the dimensional darkness. They found planet earth and created all life with interstellar intelligence. They(humans think are Gods and angels) control and engineered everything you see. They made humans believe that they are the Biblical characters basically, something humans could grasp. They visit, they study, they take samples, human eggs, sperm and create alien/human offspring utilizing them to colonize other earth like planets in distant galaxies. Humans will never see God/Jesus or understand or make contact with the Advanced Alien Beings of the cosmos..........PEACE!
What are you on?

Experience! Ever see God/ Jesus? Not us either. Ever see craft/close encounters? We have. Not our fault, we didn't go out looking, they came to us. We wish it was God and he came up to us and said,"Bless you my children". That would have made our lives complete and belief in God part of our everyday life. Didn't happen. Instead, we had a close encounter @10ft and another time had a MIB moment @1ft. So, don't try and say your crazy, you were hallucinating....I wish we were, it would explain everything. Because, people close to us know us and know we would never make up such nonsense. It happened, it was real and we have on answers.Honestly, I cant wait for another encounter...it was amazing. Dont be scared they come to study and take samples from what we experienced. We are not alone....God or Aliens?

We already have that technology to get to Mars. I see the future in artificial intelligence such as more elaborate human droids, more sophisticated virtual realities, nanobots in humans, human microchip implants, more high end cars and levitating trains. These are being built right now. What I'd like to see is something totally new, a hologram technology to replace television. It would be cool to watch in your living room without a TV screen and instead something like a projector that will be able to project holographic pictures in your room just like what we see in movies and 3DS games. lol

Some germans allready built that, and a bigger version was used in some concerts, to project the singer that when finished fell apart in cubes. But it can't abide people getting up for a cuppa. So you would still end up with a seperate space thus, to get that good projection.

Have you seen Gorillaz liver performances? They employ holographic technology in many of the stages that are capable of supporting the equipment for it. It's awesome.

This is the most well known performance:

indeed, liked their animations anyway.
But the pricetag must be staggering.
i once looked for a projector that could simpy project t.v. on my sealing. At that time about $6,000 and that's just one, and you needed to darken the room.

Aye.
It reminds me of cyberpunk stories.(if you are going to make an S.F. movi, with 3D then at least make it more interesting storyline.)
M. Scorcese said that they should only use 3D if it fit the storyline, thus was included.
3D movies still have the problem of convergence/focus.

What i find a new interesting technic is the one making 3D images.
Fascinating all those layers powder and glue.

So langoliers do tell us.

Nice tune by the way, but i'm not all that fond of sanctifying torture implements.
And the original word for spirit in hebrew would just be nephesh-life. Animals, humans no difference.

Yeah, they're still a bit pricey today even, but as technology advances things become cheaper. Just give it a few more years and you'll be able to afford one. When I was young I had to save up a fortune for a 286 desktop computer, it was about $3K back then, now I can buy a Pentium at no less than 3Ghz and 1 gig RAM ... plus massive hard drives, for $100 -$300 depending on how many accessories I add on. lol

The keyboard I want is still $500 though, laser tech is still expensive for some reason.

Well, that's two people who are missing the point entirely!

Of course I'm referring to a spaceship that transports people. Of course, the one possibility that may outweigh the end of fossil fuels would be colonization of space and exploiting the energy and mineral resources out there. I just don't see it happening before a population collapse, but there's always hope. Then the next age would be the real space age.

What are you smoking? The population "collapsing" is not even a possibility in the near future ... maybe a couple thousand years, or a hundred years if we don't slow our reproduction rate .... but that won't be an actual "collapse," just a point in which people will have to actually consider their priorities better.
