Title: A handful of Earthlings...
Post by: SoldierofFortune on February 01, 2020, 07:46:12 PM
I dream of a world... that a handful of earthlings live on the planet earth and the others are busy with spreading in the galaxy... or they are already the dwellers of some liveable planets that provide them ''the homos'' with the necessary conditions...

I dream of an interplanetary federation... and its people as a united whole... Or say, intergalactic; in a very far away future... But hey, we have science and technology... And science and technology are being improved at the speed of light i.e., The acceleration of it is transcendental...
Remember the journey to the Moon... Long time has been since going to the Moon...

What i want to say is:

The peoples of the world can unite as a whole only if they have a mutual interest...
Around this interest ''we'' as the human species do not conflict and we unite; For instance, against a danger coming from aliens...
No, ı do not excessively watch the Hollywood.... It was just to suppose, to examplify the people of the world who see a threat against them and unite...
However, ıt must not be a danger, it may be a positive mutual interest... When there is no border to conquer, when there is no limited resource to have; so no meaning to fight a war... amongst us...

I predict that we will never - not ever - find any planet out there that we can live on, not without an extreme make-over by terraforming, which would take at least hundreds, if not thousands of years to do. The best we can ever hope for is to build our own habitats in orbit around stars, but that won't ever happen either. Science fiction writers had to make their stories with lots of habitable planets and lots of life out there in order to have something to write about, but those things just do not exist, and never will.


But then, I'm a pessimist, so I could be wrong.

The star Sun is going to lose its fire sooner or later...
Scientists calculate its lifetime, it has a lifetime, of course... It will exist just a little bit more...

So, what will happen then?
İf no Sun, so no life on earth...
So? Is that God's plan?

To which God's plan are you referring? There won't be any humans left by the time the sun leaves the main sequence. And the universe doesn't care whether there is any life on Earth or not.

The universe has no feeling to care for... But we have.
Actually we are the products of the universe... But this is another issue...

There may be not any humans in the future, but might be intelligent and sentimental existences...
I do not know to which God i am referring, maybe a council of Gods... :D How can be sure that there is only one: )

Yeah, if God is a committee that would explain a few things...

Some people want their consciousness uploaded into a computer.  I object to that.  If I find one, I will pull their plug, just for laughs.

Actually, since all humans are deuterostomes, we're all assholes (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deuterostome) -- embryonically, we develop asshole first.

Apparently some of us never develop beyond the asshole stage.
