So i failed to post something last week, which obligates me to do it this week.
I don't have any thing to report personally. So I have decided to see if we can get a conversation started.
this weeks topic : Man, Inherently Good/or Evil? part one because this is going to have to be longer than one post .
Of late Humanity has been making some very significant strides in the fields of science. even in the last 100 years we have made staggering finds that have revolutionized every aspect of human life. A few recent examples include Graphene, Growing human organs, and well anything coming out of the LHC. Thorium is a fairly old discovery that is beginning to make traction now.
When i think of the ramifications of these technologies, I have so much hope for humanity. Graphene is going to completely changes the way we are able to do computing, thorium is a power source that with the right research, has the potential to provide unlimited FREE energy. These two pieces of tech alone when brought together are so amazingly awesome that we could actually solve the energy crisis, among other things.
When we start looking into body parts being grown and successfully implanted, we begin to realize that we might be able to eliminate things that hold people back. Its theoretically possible that this tech combined with small amounts of gene modification, we could possibly eliminate things we can only treat now. Imagine a world where we could cure Schizophrenia, fix chemical imbalances that cause depression, etc.
Some of you will read this and say " this is bull", or " that's science fiction". You couldn't be further from the truth. People We are living in an amazing future with so much possibility, google these things and see for your self-- this is not science fiction any more.
You may be able to sense a small amount of passion in these subjects. And for once i may be living up to my names sake. but this is where the conversation starts.
What if i told you that because Thorium, in theory, could fuel a car for 100 years with just 8 oz of the stuff; it will never see the light of day.
because some dude will loose billions , and billions of dollars off of the use of this tech.
There is info out there that suggests that America discovered this tech and ignored it because it wasn't weponizeable.
our government just came out this week and anounced that global climate change is a real thing, as if we needed them for that.
our government has squashed tech and advancement for the sake of money and war use so much, that they had to make this announcement.
"Whats your point?"- I choose to believe, that man is inherently good. That we choose right over wrong(this is also subjective) most of the time. But things like this make me question this thought process. and some of my religious friends will argue that man is inherently evil and would use things like this to back it.
for the sake of conversation, What do you think. and what are some examples backing up those thoughts.
I think this is going to have to be a multi part conversation because of TL;DR. next week I will try to be more specific on the topic to help as well.
I look forward to every ones thoughts.
and happy first Friday of the month!!!!!
