Everyone knows who Arthur C. Clarke was the British science fiction writer, popular science writer, inventor, undersea explorer, futurist, television host and part time philosopher. Clarkes most famous project his semi-magnum opus if you like 2001:A Space Odyssey created with the help of the brilliant Stanley Kubrick was an allegory for the development of mankind towards godhood with the unseen aliens representing this godlike state of superintelligence. The film which came slightly before the book has been described as the greatest film ever made, the greatest story ever told and a film beyond films themselves, to me the film is not just a work of art rather it is a stage in our evolution the beginning of our journey towards the singulari…Read more >
In this blog post I would like to describe to you an idea called the 'black hole entity hypothesis' which essentially asks the question of 'is it possible for a sentient being to exist as a blackhole or in other words can black holes gain sentience?'
Before we begin I l would like to describe two types of black hole, the cosmological black hole and the informational blackhole. A cosmological or stellar black hole is formed when a sufficently large star at least 20 times larger than our sun collapses in on itself resulting in a supernova ejecting a large portion of the stars material out into space and an infinitely dense singularity appearing at the centre of the black hole. The gravitational pull of a black hole is strong enough to suck i…Read more >
A megastructure if you don't know is any kind of artificially made construct that is considerably large externally as well as internally in some cases. The minimum height requirement for a megastructure must be at least 1km and the minimum length requirement is 20km , although this is just an estimate since both of these sizes describe very small mega structures.
Although megastructures are generally found off-world due to many of them being millions of times larger than the planet they originate some of them are small enough to fit on the their home-planet.
Examples of such structures include:
The great wall of china and the large hadron collider.
Beyond this we have stellar or galactic level megastructures such as:
Dyson spheres and Matriosk…Read more >
When mankind was in its darkest hour due to the threat of global internet censorship and Nuclear terrorism a random chance occurence caused all the people who have ever lived to merge together forming the human-man. Human-man was made up of all the best qualities of mankind with none of our weaknesses such as disease or war , this entity was literally the ideal person. They had a complete mastery of all possible skills from playing instruments to martial arts , this allowed for them to paint masterpieces , build supercomputers out of scraps and win at any event. This combined Human would have the destructive capability to destroy a small island to entire continent with preparation time. Their speed would be greater than any of our finest v…Read more >
As the human race continues to advance further and further into the future there will come a time in the not to distant future what mankind joins with their technology becoming semi-biological entities. This change from biological - artificial will not be like in the films rather it will be an elegant process using sophisticated nanobots rather than cluncky steel apendenges. The 1st stage of this post biological era will be in the early 2020's when the first fully fuctioning medical nanobots will be commisioned. They will be injected into the bloodstreams of the billions of people alive at the time giving them increased pain resistance , healing abilties and an a resistance to many kinds of disease and illness. In later decades as computer…Read more >
