  • The crazy ideas thread!

    Just post your random ideas, inventions, theories, and predictions, scientific or otherwise! Discuss eachothers points

    1.One day, I think that humans will begin to have computers integrated into their bone marrow at the age of 25 (so that they've finished growing)

    2. 'Sleeper ships', where hundreds of thousands of people are preserved, will be powered by nuclier fusion (yes, fusion) to evacuate the earth when the sun finally expands.

    3.there WILL be a world war 3.

    4.Humanity will (one day, far, far, far, far, faar from now) disregard differences and unite in a common goal of self-preservation and ascend to type II civilisation.

    5. eventually, we may also attain type III and IV civilisation.

    6. Contact lenses will be developed that have tiny screens over the pupil, and are toggleable so that you can still see when you need to.

    7.mobile phones will be integrated into our skulls.

    8.we will have a new breed of trekkies who call themselves the borg.

    9. at least one more empire will rise and fall before 2200.

    10. computer games will become so real that you will not be able to differenciate between reality and pixels.

    11.intelligent life will be found outside our solar system.

    12. I will rule the world (j/k :icon19:)

    Discuss and add at your discresion!

    Your thread truly lives up to its name...

    Regarding numbers 4 and 5...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Type_I_civilization

    There is no such thing as a type IV civilization unless you are referring to the game.

        This is from a different scale:

        1.squabbling/wars and inefficient use of global resources
        2.global consensus and working towards a common goal.
        3. expanding from and so outliving home planet within solar system
        4.as above but outside solar system (galactic empire sorta thing)
        5. the ability to manipulate space time itself (wormhole transportation 'n' stuff)

        and yeah CivIV rules!

          For this thread, I defer to Ray Kurzweil on Our Lady Peace's album, The Age of Spiritual Machines:

          Principles of good Sandbox Etiquette:
          Assume good faith - Be polite, please! - Work toward agreement. - Argue facts, not personalities. - Concede a point when you have no response to it, or admit when you disagree based on intuition or taste. - Be civil. - Be prepared to apologize. In animated discussions, we often say things we later wish we hadn't. Say so. - Forgive and forget. - Recognize your own biases and keep them in check. - Give praise when due.

          Treat others as you would have them treat you

            Invest in hearing aids. So many people have their MP3 players up to loud nowadays.

                    There's an interesting short novel by Piers Anthony that addresses this very issue called Race Against Time. You can read the first chapter and a half, and buy it while supporting TG, here: http://www.amazon.com/Race-Against-T...6201401&sr=8-1
