The simulation and virtual lifetimes


Have you ever wondered why your sense of self feels ageless? That present self, the one that writes, that looks, that hears. That relfective self, the one that remembers and relfects. The future self, the one that thinks of the future and all that will come… You feel ageless but your body does not. It ages noticably along a predictable path. Your face changes to relect your age.

Climate change is solved by a breakthrough in Human Longevity


Imagine for a moment that science had proven that each of us upon our death are re-incarnated, literally born again to start from scratch as a baby human.

It is possible to create a solution if everyone is involved and shares the load...

Worlds within Worlds


I was steering out from the beach at the sea and thinking this is real life, nature at its best. The sheer force of the sea was spectacular and about as far from being influenced by me as possible. That’s when I thought what we cannot control we alienate, I didn’t pay it any further attention, why should I it was too powerful for me. We create worlds within worlds because as a species we have...
