tiberiualexander saidThis is the perfect example of the illusion created by society that human mind is somehow limited. If it can be imagined, it can be created.
Also, I am 100% sure that the human mind is not that powerful
It is not an illusion created by society. I don’t like politics, religion, dogmas, I never watch TV, I have my own beliefs molded by years of reflections and reading philosophy, science and the so-called “fringe science”. Also, I meant that the human mind is currently not that powerful, but I didn’t say it won’t be someday. For now, we are just some little ants compared to the greatness of the Universe. We don’t even understand more than 5% of the Universe. If we knew all the secrets of the Universe, we wouldn’t know how to handle them. We would be almost gods, and that kind of power is dangerous.
Anyway, please imagine the 16th dimension (I have a pretty good idea about how the 10th would look, but I want to go further). Or imagine a new colour. Or imagine an entity that could create the Universe and describe how that entity was born. Then create that entity yourself.
See what I’m talking about? Even our imagination is currently limited. But check out the video I recommended on the 15th page of the topic. Our children will be smarter, and their children even smarter. Our brains are forced to evolve because we live in this era of information.Anyway, the world won’t end in 2012 and nothing will change http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KjKUqQ2uSzg . I don’t think we’ll experience any kind of awakening or something like that. I want it to happen, but that doesn’t mean it will.
Knowledge is limited, not imagination. We need to have more experiences in order to achieve greatness. I don’t think you can measure our understanding about the universe, and since the universe is supposed to be infinite it is pretty obvious that you cannot make comparisons.
What is certain is that everything is uncertain. The base for science is doubt, uncertainity, which means that you can never really have a theory which in the future will not somehow collapse. Different scientists have different ideas and most of the time they encounter each other. The video which shows that our children will be smarter can be proven to be false. There are no more evolutionary pressures driving gross human evolution and with this information era, actually, I honestly believe that we are getting more and more dumb.
@digitalscience, I admire you very much, but I disagree with you. I don’t believe there is a duality, I don’t believe there is a soul, I’m not an eternal soul, my personality is the result of the connection between my brain cells and thousands of years of evolution. It may sound dark and sad, but it is not. It is beautiful to accept who we are and stop lying to ourselves with such stories as religions.
Whatever you read, whether is science, art, religion .etc they all try to explain the origin of human species and the universe in different ways but the aspirations are the same, they all lead individuals towards freedom.
There is no such a thing as truth or a lie, all it matters is what you believe.
“For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.” - Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
This discussion is pointless, whatever is going to happen we have no power over it and accept it or not you are going to die someday, so live fully while you are here and enjoy your already short life.
I am suprised by the media who seems to do a great job to project fear on people. Do not lose your time listening to crap, and instead do what you love because in the end only this will matter
What is even more interesting is that the largest star known to us exists only in our galaxy, just imagine the whole stars that exists in the infinite universe!
The question is not whether you are an an introvert or an extrovert but is whether you choose to socialize directly or indirectly.
The answer is clear, you need people. You choose to socialize by knowing people indirectly through books, computers or directly through outgoing, parties, meetings .etc
That is great actually, congratulations to that guy! Hopefully many people get inspired, kindness is necessary ingredient, one of the greatest and yet an easy thing any human can do!
Anyone remember this:
It would be great suprise if envato would show the old design for a day, good old times!
