Well there is always gene editing, which is coming whether we like it or not.
One of my favorite ideas has always been that the greys are actually us tens of thousands into the future, long after we bankrupted the earth and fucked up making wormholes, long after we abandoned the earth and gene editing ourselves to the brink of extinction, and that in search of a new, non-ruined planet to settle, accidentally used some type of singularity technology that instead of bringing us to a distant point in space took us to a distant point in time, which theoretically could work like that.
I was watching something that theoretically if we were to find exotic matter and a way to construct a white hole, that going diagonally across the event horizon could take us to a bent point in time iirc. I forgot how he explained it but that basically when it comes to spooky physics stuff like that that you're interfering in causality on some level anyway? Regardless it is kinda like having to plot an extra spatial dimension to everything we do, like you don't say "meet me at the corner pub" you have to say when
to meet you there. We somewhat skip past this because of the way our monkey brains are wired but we're actually plotting a fourth coordinate in all we do. So really the thing is we simply went back in time without plotting the spatial coordinates, you'd be in the deep void of space, because everything is in motion and relative to each other. I think that theoretically because the sun is moving through the galaxy as the galaxy rotates stars around it, where we rotate around the sun, that some random spot millions of years ago without explicitly finding the correct spatial coordinate basically would make you
the alien visitor coming to the nearest star from the deep void of space.
Buy anyway yeah this idea always amused me. It's especially because greys kinda look like the direction towards which we've been evolving, particularly if you account for adaptations to low-G low-light environments on a ship or station around some gas giant. So anyway the idea there I think being the theory that if greys were real that they're harvesting us and other things because their genomic tech fucked everything up longterm and now they need some kind of primordial and pure human gene samples to keep themselves going.
But like I said one way or the other this is the tech that actually scares me, because I know that we will do it, I know there will be unforseen consequences, and I know the known dangers are going to be ignored anyway. However it is still nice to dream that out of the many horrors of the Genetic Age directly following the Digital Age that we will at least get some non-bydlo peoples out of it because clearly the problem we have dealt with the entire time is a combination between complex mathematical problems and fundamental human nature problems, and while we can always solve for maths with better organization and system model principles or enhanced technology, we cannot ever solve that fundamental human problem of being a particularly well mannered ape in a cosmonaut suit.
Moreover it doesn't help much that said apes must create a system in which to dwell that not only accounts for but is designed to serve said ape, and that any system designed is going to be able to advance far faster than the ape can ever possibly hope to adapt to it without changing the fundamental nature of the ape.
And so then the problem really becomes, how much of our own native, arguably sacred humanity are we actually willing to pay in the process?
The transhumanists, certain technologists, and the H+ retards all would argue that there is nothing there anyway, which is partly why I refuse to take them seriously, because you cannot deal with a guy doing transactions in your name when he doesn't understand what you're giving him to haggle with has value in the first place. They would have us argue that humans are merely chemical processes and the usual cliches, and that therefore there is no difference between the pre and post-transporter Kirk, or the man or the digitized copy of his brain on some SSD. If we cannot agree to these fundamental premises the argument goes nowhere, which is part of the problem, and also the solution, because diversity of thought and opinion is itself like a memetic fail safe, a kind of meme equivalent to maintaining genetic crop diversity, which usually prevents going too far in any radical changes that we may regret later.
I don't think it is sufficient to be dismissive of normalfags. There is a difference between an ape that watches sitcoms and wants to be like their friends, and someone who is just plain stupid. There is a point to all this, and what we would be losing in that process that frankly isn't our call to make. This bydloness even as an artifact is a fundamental reason why we advanced to total control over life on the planet in the first place, regardless if the autists on here ultimately disdains it either because of bittnerss, or dismissiveness, or just plain ignorance of it. Normalfags act as they do for a reason, and therefore while you may disagree with parts of it like sniffing each other's butts or petty dominance struggles or whatever it is, if the fact remains that it helps form group cohesion and strength it will always be a part of us, even if only vestigial. They work not as one independent thinking mind, but as a unit, regardless if its results are an emergent force of nature or a bunch of lemmings running off a clifffun fact: that phrasing comes from a nature documentary where the humans forced them to march off cliffs for the sake of making the film https://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=wildlifenews.view_article&articles_id=56 Disney company faked it. It made most people believe it. Take that for what you will about human tendency to drink the koolaide
>WE STILL DON'T KNOW HOW TO ENLIGHTEN PEOPLE.
The problem is this requires you being enlightened yourself, and that should be self evident and make people want to come to you, and it is a group effort to begin with. At the same time, that parable about pearls and swine is always going to hold true in relativity with a population, even if you can consistently lift up mean and mode to a much higher point.
