I’ve always dream of being a machine, and like fucking off to mars or something to live in a hut. When everyone copies me, I’ll head to some planet out of the solar system.

Yeah, its always been the conjoined mind thing thats bugged me, like do I really want to know about everyone’s infinite masturbating?


I’m sure it would hella efficient, but without reason to be efficient it would be pointless.

Then take away of all sexual organs of both genders and have us to reproduce by mitosis….

Besides derailing this thread into oblivion.

How people view robots.

How realist would view robots.

What robots currently look like, and this video was 2 years ago. Imagine 20 years into the future, what they would look like.

If anything its gonna be the sex industry that pushes robotics into greatness.

Wat.


You’re right, we need a Robotic sex toys general now.

We’re only a few years away from functional robotic limb replacements. Give it a few decades and we could go full cyborg if we want to.

Sign me up, if I can get it for free by being the first one, I’m all for it.

TREMBLE BEFORE THE MIGHT OF ASPIE-TRON

Very funny.

@Sweatie:
The robot was really impressive. I’m always surprised to see an artificial human, either robot or animation character, that’s managed to land on the far side of uncanny valley. When it’s not talking, it’s pretty convincing.

I recently went to Disneyland and rode on their new Little Mermaid ride, and found it to a three-minute trip right through the center of uncanny valley.

My father has Asperger syndrome, so i was diagnosed with it when i was little. To be honest i never knew what was it until i became older. However, i know a lot of people who have Asperger’s, and they are cool people, and i respect them mostly cause, like i said, my fathers has it. But alot of guys at my school think that Asperger’s is the same thing as Autism, so they hate aspies.
They end hurt really bad however, mostly by me.

Aspergers is in the spectrum of autism. So they can confuse it for something else… :S

But it’s still no reason to hate them. All the Aspies i know are something totally different compared to this:

(And does “spectrum” means?)

Spectrum is like a scale of severity or differences. Asperger’s syndrome would be a 1, 2, or 3 on a scale of 1-10 on the autistic spectrum, and a person who is actually disabled from participating in society on their own would be an 8, 9, or a 10.

That’s a simple way of looking at it. Basically, severity of autism varies among people diagnosed with it. Like I said, some people I could suspect and others I couldn’t even tell.

It’s a conspiracy I believe I could add some scientific hypotheses to. Seriously, I’ve a theory planned out here.

Well, if you think about it, Aspies are more “fit” for the modern world due to our logical thinking and mental ability. In a few more decades, Aspies could be even in population with non-Aspies, and could even outnumber them further into the future as long as some civilization collapse doesn’t happen.

This is purely theoretical thinking though. It may happen, it may not. It really is possible though…

No no, a spectrum doesn’t have set values like that, does it? By ‘Autistic Spectrum’ it can be thought as a unexpected ‘value’ across a spectrum, as if high functioning autism wouldn’t exactly mean they are at the top, people are unique.

Well, that’s assuming most Aspies are at the low end of the spectrum, where their obsessive tendencies fail to impede their thought process.
Also, mating potential is not really amplified by logical thinking. Lower levels of empathy among people with Aspergers probably decreases their chances of reproduction.
But this is irrelevant, because aspergers is not a solely genetically inheritable condition. There is strong evidence that environmental factors play a large role in whether or not a child will get Aspergers.

Ever sense my post; yes.
But I think Aspies will be the norm at a point in the future if we still advance in technology and not have a apocalyptic scenario.

By that, you imply that only environmental factors will show a person’s autism.

For me, that’s wrong.

Aspies are the ones that can still function on their own. Autistic people are the people who usually can barely function on their, or can’t function at all.

I don’t believe I’ve ever mentioned this before, but I actually have Asperger’s Syndrome. I’ve noticed that what it takes away from social interaction, it adds to creativity. For instance, whenever I make something up, I like to think of a creative name for it, and I often enjoy using rarely-used words when I post on websites like this.

Overall, AS certainly has its ups and downs.

Edit: Wait, someone mentioned world domination, eh?

…so what are we gonna do tomorrow night, Brain?

That is what I was trying to say on the first page! Despite our social awkwardness we have something to make up for it to with creativity; like art, mathmatics, reading, engineering, science, and so on.
