    A Search Through Galaxies

    A Search Through Galaxies

    I’ve been alone since I was eight. I’m my only companion in this quest to find the place where I belonged. In this vast galaxy I can’t find my planet. I’ve been so many places that I can’t even remember my own parents. All the people on my planet have special abilities like flying, telekinesis, speed or super strength. Abilities like mind reading or teleportation are very rare, like only one a few thousand years rare. I don’t know how long I’ve been gone or even how old I am now. I’m somewhere in my mid-teens, I think? My clothes are tattered and I’m covered in dirt. Every so often I teleport to a planet with beings who resemble me. This is where I find safety, until I have to leave again. Sometimes I can finally find a change of clothes or scrub myself in a cold stream. It has been a while since I could safely roam.

    The Man with the Box Tattoo

    The Man with the Box Tattoo

    A portal exists on my left arm. Simple lines of ink bearing the bends that a canvas made of skin dictates, forms a cube open at one end. When the world around me consumes my will, when this reality pumped by a beating heart and rhythmic breaths misses a beat and grips my throat, I turn to the box on my arm.

    Ever since the period of the first Industrial Revolution in the nineteenth century, writers, philosophers, politicians and religious leaders have expressed concern about the impact of new technologies on human behavior and values. We are currently living through an era in which information and communication technologies are developing more rapidly than ever before. But how will this new technological revolution affect future generations’ ideas about what it means to be human?

    Top 10 Mind-Bending Sci-Fi Shows and Movies You Can Stream Right Now

    Top 10 Mind-Bending Sci-Fi Shows and Movies You Can Stream Right Now

    10. Upload The age-old question of “what happens after we die” is at the heart of Amazon’s “Upload,” a show about a man who dies and his consciousness is resurrected in a digital afterlife. He can still talk with his living friends and family, something that might provide a lot of comfort to many people who lose a loved one suddenly. There’s a catch, of course: The dead person’s afterlife only exists so long as their storage space on a gigantic server is paid up. People can opt in to this afterlife party if they want, and if they have the resources to support it, and the idea of death shifts greatly for those who make this purchase. They’re literally buying extra time, but they can’t physically touch or hold or interact with people, and technology doesn’t exist to download their minds into another body.

We pushed to engineer a way to break this constraint, and theorized what if we could enjoy our favourite dishes through another medium.

    DEEP FAKES: The Most Serious Threats in AI

    DEEP FAKES: The Most Serious Threats in AI

    A Deep fake is basically a type of syntactic media that is artificially created by using the self-learning algorithms of artificial intelligence. So basically a deep fake could be an audio clip, a video footage or an image that has been produced synthetically or artificially via the usage of artificial intelligence. Through this technology, you can swap phases in a video or in an image, you can carry out lip synching and you can modulate the voice in an audio clip. So this technology of creating deep fakes or synthetic media in a world driven by cloud computing, artificial intelligence and vast volumes of data represents tremendous opportunities and as well as challenges. So the ability to create substantive media using A.I. creates numerous opportunities because it will simply transform the way we listen, speak or communicate on social media.

    Seeing Growth as a Process

    Seeing Growth as a Process

    Several trends have led me to think about the topic of this article. The first, and most practical, is the ongoing effort to advance the artificial life form (ai) to human emotional intelligence. To that end, I have gone so far as to suggest that we are not necessarily correct in our fundamental definitional distinction between organic and inorganic, living and non-living. That distinction is just another one of our series of ongoing efforts to convice ourselves that we are better than others.

    Imagine 112 miles. Beyond the distance you can walk. If you get in your car and get on a highway, it is almost two hours of travel time. Now compare that distance to three inches. about the length of the longest finger of an adult. Three inches out of 112 miles. In relative terms, that is the distance human beings have travelled into space as compared to the distance we must travel to reach the nearest star. In late 1968, human beings traveled to the moon, circled it and returned. Proxima Centauri is 4.24 light-years away. Three inches out of 112 miles.

    Time is Linear Yet Fluid

    “Wasted time is wrong that can never be righted...” Past, Present, & Future What is real beyond our perceptions...what's really real? Is this life real? We exist as a consciousness in a shell that allows us to interact on this plane. So, in a sense, our existence on this plane is not real. When one realizes this many thoughts may be put at ease and questions answered. The only things that are real are your consciousness and the present moment, because at that moment the only things existing is the moment and your consciousness. The past is no longer real because it is gone and the future is not real because it has not happened. This is not to say that specifically speaking the past and future are not real because the past was real at that moment and the future will be real in time at its moment. In short, neither are in the present. However, that moment in the past as stated was real at that time, so learn from it so that you can make the real moments in the future better.

    It had been about two months since I met and started teaching Samuel how to read. I was impressed by how quickly he picked things up, though it was surprising that no one in his old community wanted to teach him this stuff. History is the one thing we can learn from, thus a necessary thing to remember. But maybe it was that they did not see the reason to since so much of the population had been wiped out. Maybe they had lost hope for the future of humans, and learning to read and write was the last thing on their minds.
