Maybe there's a campaign to suppress knowledge of the looming changes? For political reasons?


Other names for the Forum besides Accelerated Change:

* Sci-Fi Times (credit to another member, but forget who)

* Fast Forward

Accelerating Change is the proper term. I remember way back in the day whenever I'd play COast To Coast, George Noory and his guests always seemed to be talking about "the quickening", although not speaking directly at tech. But if there's was ever anything to it, tech was ultimately what they were anecdotally 'sensing'.

Yes, it is - just not that 'sexy.' ...Sometimes it's good to use a 'hook,' then use the proper term and explain once people are listening.


Great job with the updates btw. Wish I could 'star' you!

Every day I find 5 or 6 news stories that fit with this concept, but I won't be posting them anymore. Sorry. Just tired of every thread being twisted to a "us against them," "Republicans against Democrats" polarized, mindless free-for-all that's encouraged and supported by many mods, sans intelligent aware discussion. So I'll go with the flow, and only post political crap for the fans. If I bother.

Just my musing on the subject, nothing official.

But if the forum isn't made wouldn't the AI/Singularity make it in the future? Of course by then that would also be all the posters/thread starters as well. So maybe it wouldn't make it after all...

But 2021 is coming, I wonder if I will be able to carry nearly 80GB in my head by then too.

Personally, I feel that such a topic is one of the most pressing and serious issues facing humanity in modern times.

I'm not sure that most understand just how close this is, or how truly massive of a shift it might be. In my opinion, we haven't faced such a large change since the Neolithic Revolution.

We are in a position to approach this shift consciously and wisely, and a distinct forum works towards that end. If it just "happens," and we are forced to play catch up like always, the disparity between technology and our cultural/social maturity could truly be a problem.

We here at ATS can do our part to accomplish this. Lets save all of humanity by making the new forum a reality!

Hi Sofi,

I like this idea, we're discussing it. The only issue is it's lots of work to create a new forum, we can't just "click" one into existence like most people seem to think so when we do we have to be sure it's going to be busy.

Happy Pi Day. :-)

YES! Sounds great. ...I do wonder how busy it might be at first. We might have to be patient. Or maybe not, if Japan is any kind of indicator..

Happy Pi Day to you too! :-)



Japanese robotics

There are many variations of Japanese robotics. Some different types of robots are: Humanoid Entertainment Robots, Androids, Animal (four-legged) Robots, Social Robots, Guard Robots, and many more. There are also a variety of characteristics for these robots.

The Robotics industry is more important in Japan than any other country in the world. Japan employs over a quarter of a million industrial robot workers. In the next 15 years, Japan estimates that number to jump to over one million and they expect revenue for robotics to be near $70 billion by 2025.[1]

It can be annoying stuff like that, derailing period.

Hell, with all that noise it just took me nearly a year to deconstruct all of it to then finally bring it back full circle to where my herein work kind of left off in 2010.

In the acute instances though, you just gotta be able to take their red herring and twist it back into the proper scope. Hard to properly describe, but I know its possible to momentarily derail a thread in a post, yet reign it back in. Dealing with all the drama topics the past year I know I sure got good at handling endless red herring barrages, reigning them back in in a post in the process, while turning it into a lecture of 'this is how you go off topic to make a point without actual being a derailful troll' in the closing sentence.

Regardless of strategies and coping mechanisms, when people come in trying to derail, its often a good sign its a worth effort. Other times, the bumps actually do help too to keep a thread from death.

I agree - but when Mods routinely jump in on the derail to support it...

Hence my hissy snit-fit the other day.
