Possible, though unlikely.  We are advancing so quickly in all areas of technology, that something as bizarre as transhumanism may emerge before the next 4T.

I know better.  Global temperatures are rising for the simple reason that less heat is reradiated into space than the amount radiated in.  That will be true as long as the amount of CO2 remains higher than the ideal, and the global temperature hasn't yet reached stasis.  Plant growth can't fix that quickly enough, and total plant capacity is declining in any case.

Kinser79 Wrote:Wealth inequality is also a non-issue.  Wealth has never been equally distributed unless one's goal is to make everyone equally poor.  It is far easier to tear down those on the heights then it is to raise up the degraded.

When the head of the Disney Corporation makes 1,400 times the average salary of Disney workers, and no redress through labor action is possible -- especially for Disney World employees -- the largest part of the work force.  These so-called Right to Work laws have so totally bent the power curve in favor of capital and management, that some breakdown has been inevitable for a long time.  The imbalance I high enough now, that another major recession may be all it takes to trigger some massive action … hopefully peaceful, though no guarantee of that.

Transhumanism is a bugbear that will never come to fruition.  As AI advances, it is far more likely to see us as in the way than to merge with us, or us with it.

If what you say is true then NASA should have no reason to manipulate their own figures on a regular basis.  BTW the hotest and dryest years on record occurred in the 1930s.  But what do we do know bout what the Sun is doing?  We do know that it has been releasing an increased amount of radiated heat and light. 

Now I could be a fool...but considering that 98% of the matter in the solar system are in the sun, I think it might, just might have more to do with the weather on earth than if I burn a log or burn a lump of coal today.


I've been in a Union.  I've been a scab.  I've also been the owner of my own business.  Unions provide nothing to the working class.  The goal of every worker should be at some point to become the owner of their own business.  One doesn't become rich, or even well off working and creating wealth for others.

That being said, as a business owner, I'm looking to install new order taking kiosks.  Automation is coming for everyone's job..
It really is all mathematics.

Turn on to Daddy, Tune in to Nationalism, Drop out of UN/NATO/WTO/TPP/NAFTA/CAFTA Globalism.
