Two things crossed my newsfeed this morning that belong here:

Humanoid robot crosses balance beam with ease in new video

and

Google is bringing Electronic IDs to Android

They are learning to overcome all obstacles and soon they will be able to steal our identities and impersonate humans! :gonk:

You do realize that Elon Musk believes we have already lost and are already living in the Matrix?

There are actual scientists that spend their day looking for pixels to prove that we are in a simulation. This is a for real thing.


https://www.independent.co.uk/life-styl ... 60941.html

The good (and liberating news about it) is that is does not matter what we do. If we blow up the world then it does not matter. AI will simply reset it for us. Now you could argue that that means we are living in the ultimate Nihilistic paradise (or hell as such perspectives also become irrelevant) but it also means that you can be as selfish as you want to be.

Everyone else does not actually exist. No one actually lives in poverty, pain, stress or despair therefore you don't have to do a thing to help them. This means that you can simply go about appreciating everything the computer dream world has to offer without ever giving anything back. The world really does revolve around you.
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be rememberèd—
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother

If we're in a simulation, I want the console commands. I tried thinking "player.additem f 100000" really hard, but it hasn't worked. :lol:

Are you thinking it in binary? Maybe try that.

I wasn't thinking that this would get worse:

From The BBC: Artificial life form given 'synthetic DNA'

ScienceAlert: Scientists Redesigned an Entire Genome to Create The Most Synthetic Life Form Yet

WTF are these 'people' thinking. What is their malfunction as...human beings?!?!

So......AI-created, robot-prepared, ChickieNobs?

Sneaky bastards will probably be getting chummy with your wifi router and all your smart gadgets, just waiting for that moment when they launch a nationwide coordinated attack. :vmad: :crazy: :clownshoes:
