[12:10, 17/05/2020] Khannea’s sex slave: What’s infuriating about it for you?
[12:11, 17/05/2020] Khannea: Because if this happens in the real world (a) it’s exploitative for some poor doped up women, possibly with a deep emotional trauma, or so poor she things she has to do this; (b) someone will die horribly.
[12:12, 17/05/2020] Khannea’s sex slave: Oh, i see. But fun fact is that many of the people who fo this kinf of stuff don’t do it for money but because they are really into it (i was pretty deep into furry comunity where ppl like this are easy to find)
[12:15, 17/05/2020] Khannea: I think I have a fetish for unrealistic fantasies primarily.
[12:15, 17/05/2020] Khannea’s sex slave : That’s valid, yeah. I’m like that aswell
[12:16, 17/05/2020] Khannea: Like, hulking futa demons violating succubus chicks.
[12:16, 17/05/2020] Khannea: Looks kinda raw. But in CGi it looks hot.
[12:22, 17/05/2020] Khannea’s sex slave : I preffer that kind of thing draeb rather than CG
[12:23, 17/05/2020] Khannea: I prefer consensual, safe, fun. Sure, harsh and raw fantasy scenarios, sure “emulating the impossible”. Always sex positive. That’s why I am a transhumanist.
[12:25, 17/05/2020] Khannea’s sex slave : So do i, and i would probably be transhumanist too if i bothered to look up what it actually means

[12:30, 17/05/2020] Khannea: Of course me too.
[12:30, 17/05/2020] Khannea: But there is one thing.
[12:31, 17/05/2020] Khannea’s sex slave : Hm?
[12:31, 17/05/2020] Khannea: I also want to be far above average pretty. And young, say age 23-ish. And extremely healthy. And an olympic level athletic. And able to metabolize alcohol better. Oh and sexually as vibrant and passionate as I was at my 20th. And why not a little tail and horns? Oh and cybereyes. Upgraded vagina?
[12:31, 17/05/2020] Khannea: See, it never ends. Transhumanism. Always room for improvement.

Worst case scenario with Covid

Comments Off on Worst case scenario with Covid

Follow the next sequence of statements and judge if any consequtive conclusion is halfway right.

This is not a welcome epidemic in most countries. It could not have arrived at a more … interesting… period on human history. The effects of mass shut down, no matter how haphazzardly, is already destabilizing, politically scarring and met with fire and fury. As rich people will lose a noticeable slice of their affluence per month and are already running around hystical demanding that, say, in the US the economy must be opened. And we all know Rich people write policy over there.

  • So far in typical US states (and things are better elsewhere) about 1% has been infected. In New York the fatality rate comes down to 8% (even though that goof Zoltan Istvan claims it’s 0,02% and “one in fivehundred dead is acceptable”. Right-o Zolly, well done). In New York right 21 thousand people lie already dead and rotting in their graves, cooling trucks or have been incinerated. Mortality is now certain to be AT LEAST between 1 and 3% of contaminated cases ANYWHERE.
  • To get to actual herd immunity, you’d need to infect so many people that at least if one in fifty would die. In the US that’s about, what, six million people. If we sustainably do this (i.e. those infected that need treatment get appropriate treatment) we can only expose 1-2% per, say, month or so, which would mean the process of building “herd immunity” would kill several million in the US (and if you logjam or overload or chokepoint the medical service industries you go full Mengele euthanasia on the population it might be more than ten million deaths).
  • Things are badly managed and horrendous in the US, the richest country on the planet. Things are exponentially worse in most of the dveloping world. In the developing nations there is little semblance of state apparatus, food reserves, medical services, financial buffers, healthy people, rational responses or proper political will, and yeah, you’d get closer to or above that above that 10% lethality mark. So let’s for the sake of argument do a racism and lump all developed, poor, semi-developed and developing together (say, any economical paradigm ranging from Brazil to Peru to the Congo to South Africa to Egypt to Pakistan to Uzbekibekistan to Indonesia and Bangladesh and we are talking, what, five million billion people? That would be, and I am being as charitable as I can be, between fifty million deaths world wide (a pathetically low estimate) and 500 million.
  • … and the planetary eradication of any bit of capitalist credibility. I don’t think you can “austerity” yourself out this hellstorm. The current geopolitical and geopolitical system is going to die. In many cases in bloody, hysterical revolt involving the most brutal industrial style genocide technologies as we have recently seen in the Gaza strip, Iraq, etc.
  • Covid19 is a corona virus. Never before in human history has there been a cure or treatments for Corona viruses. Normal development of a vaccin takes about 18 months. MAYBE if we vomit a few hundred billions at the problem it might be a bit quicker, but equally likely it will be impossible to develop a vaccin or treatment regimen. And even if we do, Corona viruses mutate faster than a Micheal Jackson on acid, and any vaccination might last only a couple of months. And even then at each mutation wave still people would die. And then there’s no guarantee even after vaccination a sizeable part of your population may still be shedding viruses on every fomite or in every exhalation and infecting people.

CONCLUSIONS

1 – In countries that shut down significantly, and have proper medical services – mortality may get to 1% or more total mortality (or, say something like 0,01% of the population on average dying every month, for 1-2 years) , and that’s guaranteed to be traumatic and society disrupting. It’s gona make people real angry. In the Netherlands “a country with relatively competent leaders, financial reserves, somewhat loyal and civic-minded people, as well as proper developed world health care, universal coverage and sick leave” this would mean a few thousand people dying per month, for easily two years or more, i.e. a grande total no less than fifty thousand or so. Probably a best case scenario.

2 – for a wishy wasy country with asshat politicians, zero social graces, no tradition of solidarity, everyone has guns, people are already financially barren, zero wellfare infrastructure, psychotic state debts, a medical system that would be generous only in a death camp, mass racism and economic disparity, an already grotesque level of entitlement with rich whites, extremes of political instability etc. etc. mortality will be easily four times higher per capita. No I am not going to explain what “per capita” is to those people. In other words we are talking maybe under a million deaths spread out over 2 two years if they maintain a tight lockdown sphincter, and many times that if they don’t exert state control. Fat chance on that – the current president is a senile psychopath rapist, and the next president is also likely to be an even more senile psychopath rapist. Good luck with that. My guess? 10-30 million lower estimate. Wait until the infection starts hitting the heartland hard. Then you’ll see some real vicious anger and mass hysteria.

3 – The United States is over as a political entity of any relevance. A current political establishment can’t survive under those circumstances. Ditto Saudi Arabia, where things are even worse. Ditto China. Ditto Russia. I anticipate the first revolutions to start somewhere later this year, as the virus flares up, as people develop serious mental breakdown from whateve measures are imposed, when criminal desperation and debts kick in, when stores start closing down and services or food security evaporates in large parts of your country, etc. etc. etc. Once you get there, ‘the social contract unravels’. I anticipate that LITERALLY in the united states about half right wing or establishment or name politicians will either have left the country (where exactly? I say Europe should close borders for these people) or will have died from violence, or more specifically lynchings. I won’t be surprised if I see before the end of 2020 several republican politicians massacred and mutilated in the streets of DC, right there on CNN.

4 – Now in countries were all the above variables are significantly below any level of acceptable or optimal we may anticipate (and this may seem surreal) at least as much as, to several times the death we had in world wars one and two combined in several years. And if the virus keeps mutating and killing, we can anticipate a trailing graph of, what, ten years of this before we can get to everyone and cure them? the Black Death was with humanity more than a thousand years, what’s a decade? Is there a solution or a fix? Yes there is – mass testing something like every month – and those tested and not shedding getting viruses getting an electronic authentication card they can (=being allowed by the state to) lead a life we are mostly familiar with – restaurants, parties, cinema, walks in the part, sex with random strangers, sports matches, school etc. Those who are sick, and/or carriers shedding viruses will be legally quarantined. If you are no excuritiatingly sick or you are a non-symptomatic carrier and have the responsibility to self-impose and stay home, you’ll get a food/personal care/medicines package every few days, courtesy of the state.

Don’t expect caviar. If you are really sick, you will get adequate medical care, although the care may be a bit impersonal for most people. So yeah, that’s a bit of a police state .. but most people will be in staunch agreement it is necessary. Refuse to get tested or self-quarantine you go straight into state appointed quarantine, and that will be no fun.

5 – A significant slice of people that recuperate from the worst of this infection will be effectively unemployable, needing a year of phsyical therapy, will need medication, will be categorically unable to work, may have lung, heart, brain damage, in some cases partial paralysis. This is very expensive for a rich country, and anywhere else it will may very well be a slow drawn out death sentence. Don’t expect much help from what is left of the state or your fellow citizens by then, as you starve in the streets.

You will sweeping changes in how we consume, what we eat, how we work, how we travel and commute, how we treat one another as human beings, how we consume media, how we game, what we expect of our governments. We may utterly need a basic income, we may see massive debt cancellation programs. But we may also see poor countries being completely abandoned and effectively disappearing in mass unrest. I wouldn’t want to be in a country like Nigeria in a couple of months.

I am sorry.

Comments Off on I may start a dutch foundation against all forms of advertising

I am completely done with invasive advertising. No strike that I viciously hate advertising. And now the (dutch) VPRO has started a discourse on how bad advertising is for society. The article is in Dutch but easily translatable with Google but let me briefly summarize their key points

  1. Advertising is a constant aggravation and stinging annoyance
  2. Advertising is persistently misleading or outright lies in your face
  3. Advertising causes mental, visual, audiovisual and eventually neurological distress
  4. In our society there is no longer any possibility to opt out of advertising.
  5. Advertising is now locked in a mutual and obligatory stranglehold of competing brands worldwide and it can only get worse.
  6. Advertising now victimizes people in competitions between brands.
  7. Advertising is has become a counterproductive source of information.
  8. Advertising persistently exemplifies negative stereotypes – much advertising insists on toxic sexism.
  9. (In specific “targeted”) advertising is now a proven threat against our freedom and democratic values.
  10. Advertising doesn’t work any more. It’s become functionally superfluous. Spending money advertising makes no difference in sales for most brands.
  11. Advertising moves people and society to unecessarily spend, which can lead to bad consumerism and added societal (health care) costs.
  12. The consumer always pays at the end of the day.
  13. Advertising lies, manipulates.

So the idea is to spread this article in a non-imposing manner and get people to sign up. My preliminary goals for the organisation would be

i. – Dramatically reduce advertising online, on established (old) media, in any emerging new media

ii. – Aid in starting up similar foundations or unions in other countries, specifically to all EU countries.

iii. – Force ALL advertisers operating in the Netherlands to add an easy way for consumers to opt out indefinitely, across all platforms, for general as well as targeted advertising messages.

iv. – Make Dutch government enact a robust apparatus to start seperately taxing any and all advertising that can be argued to target people that reside in the Netherlands, even for companies not in the Netherlands. Exempt smaller companies. The goal for this tax should be up to a 100% tax for the worst types of advertising. Make advertisers proactively file for these taxes by advertising and fine those who shirk these legal responsibilities.

v. – Seek the nationalization of any and all media (national as well as international branches) that subsist by and large to spread and make money with advertising, put these under foundational control so that the service becomes effectively a utility (like water, electricity). I am thinking specifically of Facebook – nationalize all Facebook accounts pertinent to the Netherlands, put the management of these accounts and communication in a Dutch registered foundation, remove all advertising of this “Facebook.nl”. Do not pay Facebook.com a penny for this nationalization – Dutch society claims the rights back of their online identities.

vi. – Institure stricter laws on the belligerence of advertising, the technologies used, frequency, the degree of manipulation, lying or deceit in advertising. Force advertising to become significantly more “aesthetically pleasing”.

vii. – Make the Dutch government hold specific people (not corporations) accountable for scams, deceitful advertising, criminal advertising or criminal conspiracy. If a violation occurs, the Dutch state fines the person directly responsible, and may cause for an arrest warrant to stand trial, or enforce actual prison sentences. So – if Facebook breaks a law, the Dutch government fines facebook but in the future would also hold any and all specific marketing specialists (plural) who were involved, and thus responsible for that crime accountable with personal fines, force them to stand trial in the Netherlands (at their expense), call for international arrest warrants and (in extreme cases) put these people in prison.

ix. – Ceate a list of all available products where all companies, corporations, institutions whose advertising targets any residents in the Netherlands MUST register and describe the nature of their advertising, any and all times the advertisement ran, what the budget is, who is paying for this, and the exact nature of the add. Likewise create a list of ALL products available offered by companies, so consumers can get to more easily avoid advertising and compare products – and effectively shun belligerent advertisers.

x. – Make any and all people, corporations, foundations, etc. who spend over a given treshold in advertising targeting specifically Dutch residents inside the Netherlands with advertising to register IN the Netherlands for doing so, pay a marketing fee, be awarded a attain a marketing licence. That means the Dutch government consequtively gets to blacklist certain types of advertisers or specific marketers by name (which can be entire corporations) for a given amount of time, or forever. With very serious penalties for violators.

xi. Have the state pay special attention to emerging technologies in advertising and force marketers and other parties to in detail describe how these technologies work. Publicize how these technologies work, giving consumers an understanding how they are manipulated or lied to.

xii. Have the state pay very special attention to any and all political advertising that targets Dutch residents inside the Netherlands.

xiii. Make blatant lying, misdirection, deception or victimization in any and all Advertising categorically illegal in the Netherlands.

xiv. Enact legislation forcing all marketing platforms (youtube, google, facebook, etc.) that have gatekeeper role provide transparancy whenever they victimize, target, ban, restrict users on their platform and make them explain why they do it, and fine them when they do this inappropriately, politically, prejudicially or inconsistently.

xv. actively mock, challenge, expose and ridicule immoral or especially vulgar advertisers by any and all legal means available.

But you can be sure I’ll rewrite these and add to these attention points.

If you like this idea, email me at khannea.suntzu@gmail.com with your name and whatever information you’d care sharing about yourself, and if you can let me know whether you’d be willing to donate to starting this organization. Once it’s up and rolling I’ll delegate to professionals, since I am not a start in running that stuff long term.

And if you are in the marketing advertising industries, sure, you can offer me a monthly payment, for life, to not press ahead with this. But you can be sure I’ll publicize your offer if it doesn’t feel sufficient. [/sarcasm]

Oh for sure this will go on for years :)

Lezzie Liesbeth in Radfem Country

Comments Off on Lezzie Liesbeth in Radfem Country

I met Liesbeth first in 2011 during Creating Change in Minneapolis 2011. Her name in reality isn’t Liesbeth right now and it was a male name back then, because she was pre-transition. Liesbeth back then was a very gay boy that only needed very limited makeup and dress to pass perfectly. Every move had a feminine quality and I am pretty sure she was destined to transition. We didn’t get along back then, but we talked briefly at a party the Hilton. Lizzie is from Europe and back then she was totally into guys.

But things evolve, and sometimes are forced to evolve. I interacted a few times with her and me an a friend confronted her about a few things. When I met her last year she was in Amsterdam and we moved in similar circles there. She had transitioned to a degree she passed the ful 100%. In fact when she first visited her Dutch Physician the guy had to doublecheck when he offered her a Gynaecological test and she said something like “it doesn’t work that way”. He didn’t realize she’d been a boy.

A few years back when Elizabeth lived in the UK she experienced something pretty awful – she suffered serious sexual abuse and rape from two men while intoxicated. As with many trans girls her vagina couldn’t accomodate full on intercourse and she had a tear after the event. She had healed OK (I checked closeup lol) and as a result she had developed a serious anxiety disorder towards men. She could still feel comfortable with trans girls, in particular post-op trans girls (her fear encompassed penises in particular) and she had always been a little pan, so as a result she started dating girls more and more, especially girls that gave her a feeling they could protect her. At that time she lived with or very close to a lesbian, which I shall refer to as M.

M was relatively famous as a socalled “RadFem” and therein lies a certain irony. M developed very protective, jealous feelings towards Elizabeth, and got in to physical altercations with men, and other lesbians over her. Suffice to say that no self-respecting RadFem (or “gender critical feminist”) would ever be caught dead, quartered, dismembered and in a pickle jar with an actual trans girl, and since Elizabeth had always preferred taking uneccesary risks in life, “lving on the edge she called” she had succeeded in fooling this feminist lesbian M in to literally not realizing she had been a guy.

Let me insist – this is a very dangerous life path. Elizabeth really didn’t care for such frivolies as “consequences” but from the stories I am absolutely certain she risked literal death, if not torture. The vitriol I have seen online about RadFems, and the seething hatred for men, and incidentally transwomen, is of a Fundamentalist Jyhadi magnitude. These women don’t even want to sit in a spot where a men just sat.

The relationship lasted a few months and then the story started to creak a little – and no it wasn’t about menstruation -. M started feeling there was something wrong, there was a violent altercation, M accused Elizabeth of “looking at guys” and they parted ways. Almost immediately Elizabeth was effectively blacklisted in that particular RadFem niche and she felt like she had to move to avoid these people. Tensions did build, others in that scene might have been a bit less gullible, and the shunning turned to midnight silent phone calls. So Elizabeth moved apartments to another part of the London area, but the stalking got worse as Elizabeth had had a date with another Lesbian, one who wan’t a RadFem. But the word got around, and now the rumors were becoming dangerous. Elizabeth moved to Germany, didn’t feel at ease there and then moved to Amsterdam, where she still lives and does webcam sex work.

For sake of convenience – she knows I am writing this, she “more than doesn’t mind” and I let her proofread all this and she signed off on it.

This article so far would be completely superfluous, if not for some stories Elizabeth told as she inadvertently wormed her way in the RadFem scene. Being a tad naive, Elizabeth didn’t know what RadFems were until she was in deep over her head in what amounts to a violence saturated hate group – (her words, not mine). As I indicated, Elizabeth is someone who might not live to a high age, as she constantly courts danger. She does consider having been a lesbian a very therapeutic phase. She doesn’t consider herself strictly a lesbian any more and is now more Pan inclined again, and is in a healthy relationship with a very generous and patient older gentleman.

We talked a lot about her and I became mezmerized with the seething hatred this movement feels for men, and the underlying ideology and world view associated with the movement. Let’s make a few hard axiomatic statements.

  1. Most RadFems are Lesbians
  2. RadFems desire full aparthejd from Men and would literally pursue a female ethno state with literally no men.
  3. RadFems are by and large politically very conservative
  4. RadFems are using duplicity, threats, slander, to move politicians to get what they want
  5. There is a sizeable minority of RadFems that are interested in using science to generate female-on-female pregnancies
  6. RadFems seek not just to be equal to men – they seek to become societally superior to men – literally – through legislation. Some think there are literally “too many men” and would use whatever means at their disposal to reduce the number of men in society significantly. There is open discussion of literal genocide of men.
  7. RadFems are in near universally favor of the death penalty for men who rape women.
  8. RadFems specifically recruit raped women to their cause, and to a lesbian lifestyle.
  9. Some RadFems have started they consider rape a recruitment device, and Elizabeth strongly suspects in some cases RadFems have set up men to rape targeted women to induct certain women in to their lifestyle and community.
  10. RadFems maintain active contacts with the alt-right, ultra-conservative, racist, white power, fascist, ultra-religious and similar communities to help enact legislation and policies they desire.
  11. RadFems hate men but not as much as they viciously hate transwomen. According to Elizabeth the mere mention of socalled “trannies” is sufficient to make some Radfems physically distressed to the point of throwing up. Acording to Elizabeth RadFems covertly discuss ways to legislate from public life and and all transwomen, deliberating to publically characterize them as rapists, pedophyles, carrying and spreading diseases and virtually constantly close to psychosis. M insisted that ‘all trannies are borderliners”, which is a bit rich because M was herslef diagnosed with severe borderline disorder.
  12. RadFems support Trump and tend to be supportive of pro-life policies (except in the case of male offspring, in which case they don’t mind either abortion or de defacto euthanasia after birth). This may seem like an exaggeration but I have heard this repeated over and over as basically a core tenet of what groups in the UK currently consider mainstream RadFem thought.
  13. Some RadFems have children from previous interactions with men. According to Elizabeth she has seen subtle clues that these woman are mentally and physically abusive to male children – and such behavior is sanctioned in the community.

I fully realize in itself this article doesn’t mean much in the bigger picture. I can’t drag Elizabeth on camera and have her repeat all these statements “under oath”, and even then there would very like to be serious chance on violence, retalliation, release of senstitive details about past or other serious nuisance. And even then there would be the matter of providing evidence. Plus, in some jurisdictions not telling you are a transwoman and you sleep with a lesbian makes you subject to allegations of rape. I am not certain how this would work but Elizabeth seems to thing this is actually a risk, and if one thing Elizabeth is scared of prisons.

But I would warn society for RadFems. Conservative politicians realize what alliances you form and ask yourself if this serves your interests in the long run. To those Loud Voices who are leveraging statements by RadFems suggesting all kinds of horrible things about transwomen (vicious hearsay often quoted to enact legislation barring transwomen from all-female environments under pain of grave legal consequences) I say – know what you are dealing with, and “RadFems are not your friends”.

To my politicians, to all politicians I state unambigiously

T h i s i s a h a t e g r o u p

I live in Amsterdam and I never met any RadFems, as in ever. I dealt with lesbians but I don’t see much of a point in that. I have very few common grounds with the typical lesbians, although I do online game occasionally with one (and we share porn).

But I am very solidary with transwomen in other countries, and I know for a fact they are being actively targeted, by whatever means possible, to eradicate them, to roll back the universal idea that the law should legally recognize transwomen as women, that society should aide in emancipating transwoman and treat them for gender dysphoria by curating select (uhm how do I say this in the most “woke” manner?) gender reaffirmation treatments. I know for a fact RadFems and “Gender Criticals” are very effective in changing public opinion, they are constantly eroding the influence of more liberal feminists, they actively loathe leftists, and they preach violence whenever they have get away with it.

I believe there is ample cause for governments to keep a close watch on this movement, and screen them for crimes, misinformation, vindictive propaganda. They do not preach in secret what they say in public, AT ALL, and there is an active inner sanctum in their ranks that is dangerously radicalized and disjunct from civilized society.

I am also aware that writing this exposes me to fairly considerable danger. These are not gentle souls and they will stalk, harass, malign, gossip, provide false testimony, expose my private information or do whatever they can to terrorize me, even if this article is otherwise ignored by people. Imagine if this article goes viral – the fallout could be physically or societally quite dangerous. These girls don’t feel around.

Beware.

2020 vision much?

Comments Off on Constraints in interstellar travel and how to overcome them.

If we want to travel to another stellar system, i.e. “traverse” light years of space more or less uninterrupted and without a timescale we’d consider reasonable and mangeable there are a series of major hurdles to overcome.

We can not make definitive statements about technologies that do not yet exist. For the same of the argument I will not “handwavium” all sorts of speculative technologies and concentrate on the “worst case scenario” that we are to travel such distances only with technologies we are currently absolutely certain of. So no elaborate nanotechnology, no energy output with “antimatter”, no forcefield or “bussard ramjets”. We stick to current technologies and technologies we can be more or less secure they are merely engineering challenges.

The question is – if technological advancement would stop today, and humanity HAD to travel to Proxima Centauri, could we? I believe the answer to be yes, and in fairly reasonable timeframe, Caveat – I am maths blind, so I will not use elaborate calculations – just simple stuff which I can ask google.

The fastest spaceship currently in existence is the Juno spacecraft which moves at 365,000 km/h. A voyage to Proximi Centaur would take more than twenty thousand years at that speed.

We face some big challenges.

  1. travel time, morality

We might in theory already be able to construct a cylindical O’Neil type habitat with artificial spin gravity and create some sort of sustainable cycle. Arguably we should be able to increase our speed well above Juno spacecraft so its safe to assume we can reduce travel times to thousands of years. If we assume normal humans as we currently are it is simply not moral to make this voyage. We can not consign human beings to (a) being severed from the rest of humanity for that long, (b) we can not guarantee that the system onboard does not break down and (c) we can not have a procreative cycle on-board and consign children on that vessel to a life of “just that vessel”. The equasion changes if we (*) can suspend life for a very long time, i.e. decades or centuries. Currently there is one major problem that difficult to overcome with existing theoretical frameworks – that is that any form of human physiology we can currently think of (and even considerably altered ones) carry trace elements that decay radioactively, such as potassium and carbon. Over years, let alone decades, damage from minute particle radiation accumulates, damaging the body from the inside. We currently don’t even have a theoretical framework to repair that damage, hence forms of “hibernation” or suspended animation (let alone “freezing” a body) anywhere over years will accumulate so much damage the patient doesn’t survive the journey.

Let me however state something else – a think city sized colonies to be a somewhat moral undertaking. I personally wouldn’t want to (or could) live outside a human community under several ten thousand human beings. I can imagine such a society to exist in a space colony type safe living environment. We know since the early 1970s such environments can be constructed at enormous economic cost. If the world collectively really wanted to, we could have an O’Neil space habitat in a stable lagrange orbit in probably under 20 years. But it would require a world war 2 mindset to do so. It is however very doubtful we could propel such a “several ten thousand population” habitat over interstellar distances in anywhere under thousands of years, probably tens of thousands of years. Juno spacecraft is a very small spacecraft in comparison. You can’t indefinitely scale up a spaceship to the size of a oil rig, or a skyscraper building, or an aircraft carrier and expect to be able to push it to the velocities we could attain with the Juno spacecraft. And if we could we can’t reasonably expect to persistently be able to feed thousands of humans for all that time and expect nothing would go wrong during the voyage. And if it would go wrong – everybody on board dies a horrible, lonely and (most poignantly) pointless death. So we have to propel the vessel faster. And if we contemplate that we quickly run in to problems

2. Propulsion systems are violent systems. An online calculator tells me that a 100.000 ton vessel (something like an aircraft carrier) that accelerates at 0.01 G (what we can fairly assume a reasonable acceleration rate) we learn that the vessel starts out as some sort of space tanker, pushing against a mountain of “fuel” weighing over 6 million ton, and the voyage is then reduced about 40 years. The trick here is to understand that in space constant acceleration eventually ends up boosting a vessel to gargantuan speed, in this case 0.2 the speed of light. Bad news is that we probably can’t do much better than that without literally melting sterilizing the vessel with radiation.

3. the next problem is debris. And this is a big one. Lets do a calculation. A one gram object hitting the space vessel at a relative speed of 0.2 C would inflict 116.499.889.321.526.300 joules energy. That’s 116 quadrillion with a q. I read somwhere else that a hiroshima style explosion does 63.000.000.000.000 (63 trillion) joules. Oops. We can safely state that the odds of the vessel hitting a grain sized object during a several decade voyage are pretty much 100%. So we must conclude that even while we can accelerate a vessel to decent enough percentages of the speed of light we probably won’t survive the journey. So we have to travel slower most of the voyage, or we need very implausible shielding to protect us from impacts, or we need to clear the path of substantial debris, or we would need to be able to intercept minute particles from a considerable distance and somehow destroy them.

Does this sound absurd? It sure is. But do remember that during that voyage we have been “charging up” the vessel in the most efficient way nature allows us, with kinetic energy, worth 16 million tons, or a fraction thereoff. That reaction mass comes back to bite us in the behind so to speak, as bugs that hit or windshield hit with the energy of train wagon loads full of TNT. I.e. Ooops, and Not Good.

Now on the latter, we do have a nice verifiable track record. Right now we track a swarm of particles around Earth, some about one gram. We do so very precisely, and we are still able to manouver insane swarms of satelites through that swarm with not too much calamity. The space shuttle did get hit frequently by flake sized debris and as we have seen above we can’t afford to have even microscopic particles collide with the vessel. A flea weigh 0.01 gram and even that still impacts an object moving at 0.2C at 1.164.998.893.215.263 (1 quadrillion) joules. That’s still substantially more than a hiroshima sized explosion. The biggest nuke (50 megaton, tzarbomba) had an output of 2.100.000.000.000.000.000 (what comes after Quadrillion?), 2100 quadrillion – just for comparison.

If we do a combination of burning particles out the way (and there are two ways to do that) in a fairly broad band of space of, let’s say about several thousand kilometers, keep doing so constantly – and we have the best radar system on the bow of the ship and the most high energy X ray laser money can buy, we still cant offer the vessel acceptable certainty. Conclusion – we HAVE to reduce the velocity of the vessel to a hundredth of C, and probably even less – unless we could more efficiently, and with more certainty guarantee the space between here and Proxima Centauri to be cleared of debris.

According to wiki the distance to proxima centauri is 268,400 AU. That’s a lot. The human mind is not capable of making any non abstract mental model. You can calculate this over and over and you will never in a lifetime attain a reasonable and realistic intuition of what that distance entails. Juno travelled to Jupiter with all kinds of cunning orbital mechanics mischief in 5 years. Jupiter is “several” AU removed from us at closest orbital distance. Thus we can safely assume that likewise a scaled up current technology human vessel could somewhat “mostly” safely make a journey of 1 AU in about a year. The faster we travel, the more unsafe it gets. Juno travels at 265541 kilometers per hour. Let’s say 30 kilometers per hour. 20% of light speed is about 60 thousand kilomers per SECOND.

There’s an interesting detail. Interstellar space is not empty. There are numerous objects there. Most these objects look a lot like Pluto, but are just smaller. They are essentially very small dwarf planets. We can likewise assume that there are also lots and lots of smaller, asteroid sized objects. Question – what is the average distance between such objects right between the Sun and Proxima centauri. The sun is surrounded by a very sparsely populated cloud of objects called the Kuyper belt, and beyond that the Oort cloud (mostly cometary debris) extends about 1 light year. Space gets very empty beyond that but I conjecture that there are numerous oumuamua like objects there, regardless. Dare I make an estimate? Let’s guestimate the average distance in a, say “several” AU wide band between the Sun and Proxima Centauri, in terms of objects like Ceres, Pluto, Sedna, Orcus, Eris, Makemake, Haumea, Qoaoar, etc. my cautious estimate is about 10 billion kilometers (preferably less), probably a bit more. In other words if I had a large piece of paper, and two dots on far end of the paper stand for the Sun and Proxima Centaur, and I drew a straight and very thin line between those two points, the line would intersect with something in the order of several ten thousand dwarf planet (in the order of several hundred kilometers in size)

What are dwarf planets?

The problem with interstellar travel is speed. And it’s debris. And it’s the required fuel. And it’s the relative frailty of matter when you inject too much energy in to heat (heat, kinetic or otherwise). You can’t make spaceships endlessly bigger. You can’t endlessly pile mountains of fuel on them. You can’t make mountain sized nuclear bunker shields on the front. You can’t make engines ever more energetic and put out more and more energy. You can’t lock people in very confined cans endlessly and you can’t do so for extremely long periods, or even generationally. There are major tolerances at play here and stuff and if we exceed these it pretty much means party is over.

But there are solutions, and given those solutions we can establish reasonable travel constraints. We can calculate what can with existing technology.

Let’s assume a magnetic accelerator composed of rings. It’s a fairly robust thing, ring after ring. Each ring has a small nuclear reactor and inside the tube it’s about a meter of space for a bullet, and each element (ring) is spaces about one meter apart. I can thus envision a fairly robust steel girder structure like this. If you make one element (one meter) of this a typical modest factory can probably make about one an hour, probably a whole lot more. If we make such a linear accelerator very very long (say – the distance of the earth to the moon, or 100.000 kilometers) then we are not talking insane things. The Earth is easily crisscrossed many times over with roads, internet cables, bridges and train tracks many times more than 100.000 kilometers. If you can get in to space with a large enough sized factory you can build stuff. If you can haul the factory to one of the above KBO like objects, you do not need esoteric energies, and you probably only need a fairly modest human crew (remember, we are still talking existing technologies anno 2020, no “artificial general intelligence” just yet) to keep the factory going, tighten a few bolts every now and then, manufacture some parts for replacement. Now if we can do that we can also build very large Arecibo sized radar arrays on these objects. Once built you can abandon it, and just move on to the next one.

Ten thousand “or so” dwarf planets and moonlets and planetissimals inbetween here and Proxima Centauri. Each about several years distance travel time with a very dedicated crew. A bit like in that “remarkably realistic” movie Ad Astra. Let’s say we were to launch a structure about the size of a small oceanic ship – about 10 thousand tons. That seems to be in the ballpark for a factory where you can bootstrap whatever’s required to do the following

1 – construct a very long array of various arecibo sized radar observatories over the dwarf planets to precisely chart out all debris in the path of any starships.
2 – construct a whole bunch of observatories and scientific instruments. A bit like an antarctic base so to speak.
3 – construct a magnetic cannon capable of accelerating ferric metal objects to an extreme “interstellar travel vessel” speeds.
4 – of course – a nuclear reactor of some sort with an out put in the gigawatt range.
5 – some facilities to construct a small city, housing probably a few hundred people. I.e. again, a bit like an antarctic base.
6 – a mining facility that’s capable of outputting in the order of several tons of metallic ore and other substances – per second.

Let’s say we construct the first such (small?) outpost in a kwadrant of the sky in the general direction of alpha centauri about 200 years from now. My guess travel there could take many years, and construction would take probably in the order of a few decades. There are about 50.000 seagoing ships on Earth right now. We build most those ships in the last decades, which is quite a lot if you think about it. If we would be able to send one such vessel out in to the void every year, and every forward base were able to construct another vessel in situ about 25 years after arrival, then…

Year 1 – vessel1 launched
Year 2 – vessel2 launched
Year 3 – vessel3 launched (etc)
Year 10 – vessel1 arrives at KBO about 10 billion kilometers from the sun.
Year 20 – vessel2 arrives at KBO about 20 billion kilometers from the sun
Year 30 – vessel3 arrives at KBO about 30 billion kilometers from the sun (etc). 35 – colony1 is ready

If every such colony starts outputting their own vessels after 25 years, you enter up with a steadily expanding daisy chain of bases. Each vessel is a technologically upgraded version compared to previous versions, and they’d travel faster so the above estimates would over long times be low estimates. The expansion speed would be in the order of 1 billion kilometers per year. The vessels would literally be receiving fuel launched by magnetic accelerators in-flight. Fuel pods can be accelerated to the above speeds using the launch systems I just described, and the technology for that has existed since the 1970s. You magnetize a ring/element in the cannot, magnetize the next, and a ferric (magnetic) casing is yanked forward. The US army is experimenting with these coilguns and is capable of launching missiles at thousands of km/h speeds with far far smaller and less energetic structures.

The cannons are essentially launch systems where you precisely launch a modestly self-steering automated vessel to interstellar travel speeds. You can use these pods to (a) refuel and restock interstellar travellers with parts, raw materials, medicines, reaction mass, whatever can survive several minutes of hundreds of G acceleration. I bet you might even send simple foodstuffs in them, (b) you can send these projectiles as intercept satelites to scan the road ahead for interstellar vessels. I am sure the reader can imagine all sorts of other applications, including defensive ones, in case the aliens show up (which they probably won’t), scientific ones and on and on.

The point is, this does not require speculative and esoteric propulsion, energy carriers, impact shielding, life extension technologies, bizarre fuel loads, andsoforth.

Automated systems can do this. You should visualize cargo arriving as a very gentle and seamless process, say, a pod every few minutes, and then for years and decades, and probably for centuries. Sedated humans in impact gel containment could probably survive in the order of 10G. If you then mount a propulsion system on ‘the ordnance fired’ you could launch the components of a larger propulsion stack in consecuetive launches and literally assemble a higher output transfer vessel from parts launched. I don’t think humans could then every catch up with a vessel travelling at 0,01 light speed (3000 kilometers per second, or about 100 times the speed of Juno) but I am positive sperm and genetic material and eggs could. And I am absolutely certain scientific advances could be implemented on a small colonial habitat literally ‘on the fly’.

These projects are frightfully long, and require very stable political system and infrastructures. But the construction of such an interstellar highway could have started in the order of a few centuries. It would take grotesquely long to travel to Proxima Centauri given current constraints painted above. Many centuries.

But we now see a totally new mental image that veers sharply away from the “Starship Enterprise” model of interstellar travel. Instead we see basically a very large, very long (spindly) container vessel with very very robust shielding that looks more like an industrial sea refinery rig than a space ship from science fiction. It’s huge, in the order of a nimitz class flight carrier, and very robust. Set with scientific instruments extending in booms from the central structure, and with an active and engaged crew. Children will be born, be raised, be educated, grow old and die. The vessel will be entercepted by cargo from reloading structure and will be in constant radio and reloading contact with the outpost(s) before and after the vessel. A factory will be constantly churning processing metallic iron cannisters into reaction mass for main propulsion and resources need for life aboard the ship.

The end requirement of building a literally uninterrupted sequence of thousands, or ten thousands of waystations with the effect of literally “outsourcing” propulsion to moonlets along the way, would not be dissimilar to the requirements we have seen in Colonial Earth’s past. People were born in quaint little ports along the way of ocean going sialing vessels, somewhere on a coastal region on the way to a far-off destination. Children would be born off the coast of, say, Zanzibar, and grow up, grow old and be buried there, only to hear stories of far away homeland but never to actually see it.

Construction of this interstellar highway to Proxima Centauri would take very very long in human terms. If each outposts netts a persistent one settlement vessel every ten or so years after a few decades, then you quickly hit maximum saturation in an exponential number of settler vessels moving at a very gradual pace, the speed of “several times” that of the Juno mission, i.e. something like over a hundred kilometers per second. Let’s assume we can construct a base every ten years, indefinitely, then after a few centuries you’d see fast interstellar vessels use reload mass to decccelerate from interstellar velocities and proceed to construct new colonies at the advance front of progress. An alien civilization observing quitely from some distance would see a line of faint glowing lights gradually extend outward from the sol system towards Proxima Centauri.

How long does it take to roll out such a daisy chain of settlements? Like I said before, thousands of years. But you would then be able to literally accelerate ever faster interstellar vessels to the maximum speed, propulsion, shielding, logistics and human crew would muster. At any point the vessels headed for Proxima Centauri would be less than a light day apart, maintaining steady and uninterrupted radio contact with outposts and each other.

Yes, you can create interstellar colonies. Yes the voyages take very long, literally centuries. But the image of a lonely Aurora type vessel that’s far from home kind of becomes invalid. Instead, the travellers would be rolling out massive sweeping scientific, technological, industrial infrastructures as a tsunami across interstellar space.

My guess how long it would take to roll out this interstellar highway completely? Actually not much longer as the actual voyages. Maybe three times? That’s less than a thousand years at 0.01 C.

And we would be doing this not with only Proxima Centauri. There would be interstellar highways reaching out to all nearby stars rolling out at the same time. Do realise – the galaxy is billions of years old, and to literally wave a three-dimensional web would take, assuming nothing much more advanced than currently existing technologies anno 2020, not much more than a hundred million years, at best.

Now…… if you start adding human cloning, long stay hibernation, cryonic suspension, cybernetics, genetic modifications of humans, mind-machine interfaces, artificial general intelligences, uploading, robust nanotechnology, etc etc. to the mix then all this would be able to roll out much much much faster.

ADDENDUM

Yes my maths abilities are bad bad bad. I am maths blind, mostly. Readers of this article may do the actual legwork in making meaningful calculations of all aspects of article. I will add any (if any) submissions or updates under the main article.

The case for Sanders to run independent.

Posted: 10th March 2020 by Khannea Suntzu in Uncategorized
Comments Off on The case for Sanders to run independent.

Is it even possible? Hell yeah it is. Sanders can decide, if he doesn’t make it into the Primary cut, to declare himself an independent “Democratic Socialist” candidate. There is at this time a solid point to be made for him to do so, and I would argue he should. See if he gets through the democratic primaries with a plurality, see if he passes the coronation as presidential candidate .. but if he isn’t, let him pull a rabbit from the hat and the very day declare himself independent candidate.

The furor and hysterical screaming of betrayal from the DNC should be deafening, no doubt But who cares at this stage.

  1. Sanders was now several times in a row, betrayed seriously by the DNC, and all competing democratic candidates. And not just a little, in 2016 there was outright fraud involved, and no one was held accountable. This time, the DNC was visibly involved in to serious voter fraud in Ohio, and arguably several other states. Every single democratic drop-out loser went to support a visible senile man, Joe Biden. This should be categorically unacceptable. It’s “spitting in your face” betrayal. The whole world was watching, and everybody knows.
  2. The alternative? Joe Biden. This is an unelectable, very sick old man. That means he will most likely fail, and if he doesn’t fail it is implicitly a vote for a VP replacing Joe in a matter of months. Who will be that VP? Hillary Clinton? This is a realistic idea since this cabal has already selected that corporatist psychopath Bloomberg for President of the World Bank, and Jamey Dimon as head of the goddamn treasury. This makes Joe the most offensive candidate thinkable, and Trump will be screaming “drain the swamp” against a man who can barely finish sentences without bleeding from his eyes.
  3. The argument that will be leveraged against Sanders running independent will be he will steal away votes from the DNC, but that can easily be refuted. At a recent Fox townhall people cheered sanders and booed the Fox hosts. It is likely Sanders will take away a significant number of votes from the Democratic contender, but even more likely he will pilfer the vote from Trump. In a contest Sanders will stand onstage debating two men (Trump and Biden) who are both in catastrophic, visible mental decline. Sanders only needs to finish first by now a typical stand-up comedian like Jimmy Dore could wipe the floor with these two elite geriatrics.
  4. Maybe people would argue this to be “unfair”, but look at the stakes involved. Biden said “when I am president nobodies standard of living will change”. That’s unacceptable. The US needs radically different policies, or tens of thousands will literally die because of underinsurance, economic marginalization, oil wars. If there is ever a case to be made Sanders should not take this laying down and do anything he can to offer an alternative over Golfing Trump or “You know that thing” Creepy Joe is moral and ethical. Not doing so is essentially unethical betrayal. And Sanders will be able to count on a grass roots enthusiasm you won’t have seen for decades in the US. People will ROAR with laughter if he does this. Biggest middle finger to the establishment ever.

So my sincere advice is to weigh this option. There is no rule outlawing it, as clearly there is apparently neither a rule for the DNC apparatchniks to brazenly, shamelessly screw over their own contenders, against the will of the people, televised all over the world.

Every option should be on the table to defeat Trump, and to defeat the oligarchy. This is no doubt the best remaining option. And what are they gonna do, bar him from the democratic elections of 2024? Well boohoo, by then it’s time for AOC to run.

I say, fuck em. Do consider :

The Hivemind Instinct

Posted: 28th November 2019 by Khannea Suntzu in Uncategorized
Comments Off on The Hivemind Instinct

There’s some uncanny things happening in the world, and reasonable folks stand slackjawed in utter perplexity at certain … things.

The most illustrative example are MAGA trump followers. We have seen this quite often in human history, and I will unsympathetically characterize what I see as “a blind, uninformed, cult-like dedication to an authoritarian populist leader”. There are flocks of pundits making cursory dismissive statements on what’s happening here, and none of them reaches to the heart of the matter.

Allow me to conjecture in a meaninful manner, and give me some rope here. Because what I will speculate will be politically fairly incorrect.

Let’s head back to the start of the Holocene, say several thousand years ago. I have in the past argued that humanity went through quite the evolutionary bottleneck at that time, precipitated by a range of major climatic shifts. Let me list the changes.

  1. The last Pleistocene ice age ending is characterized by fairly rapid melting of icecaps, and a significant rising of sea levels.
  2. As a result a lot of formerly cold and ice covered land became availale and a lot of heavily forested low lying land was flooded.
  3. Populations of humans were compressed in to new and/or smaller geographic areas, triggering a sharp increase in ethnic/genetic competition.
  4. Those populations of humans that were genetically inclined to higher competition resorted to ever sophisticated modes of eliminating competition; this in turn favored aggressiveness, central authority and leadership and an inborn inclination to identify othet ethnicities as well as other genetic strains of humans.

I would therefore argue that in the last few thousand years humans entered a competetive stage, that as natural dangers diminished or were largely eradicated (for instance – most animals are remarkably cautious with humans) those humans that favored “racism”, “respect for authority” (docility), as well as ingenuity in confrontations.

If I continue hypothesizing along these lines I’d conjecture that some human genetic strains (and I consciously don’t use the word “races” here) have a greater prepensity for these modalities. We might say, “some ethnicities may have a greater prepensity to organize along authoritarian lines, organize in gangs following a “leader” and use ever more sophisticated tools and strategies in combat.

If this hypothesis would be valid in the real world – if it describes something tangible and real, we immediately have a rather distressing model for what may be happening (and what is so befuddling to rational folks) in the real world.

If we take these three urges in the human race and combine them in to one over-all picture we may come to understand a tribal instinct that has translated quite tragically to the modern world. Here’s a narrative for you.

Human beings after the pleistocene were gradually forced in to new geographical niches and were forced to adapt quickly. One of these adaptations was an increasingly sedentary life, resisting other tribes for control of the land. To better be able to resist incursions, the sedentary folk started reinforcing more permanent settlements and fortified them. This begat primal forms of feudalist hierarchies where farmers and military predispositions calcified and society stratified. That all gradually led to territories, terristorial claims, leaders and the active desire to have your genetic legacy persist. Before this era tribal society was more equal between genders. After this transition land claim (and inheritance) progressed along male lines, females were born smaller, and as diets became more based on grains and agriculture most humans were weaker. To compensate humans in these emerging kingdoms became more suspicious of strangers (who’d signify threats to your genetic legacy) so primarily humans survived that were more inclided to agression against strangers, as well as domineering towards females. The best organized tribes (and later countries) were best able to use force to resist strangers, and in many cases resort to ethnic cleansing of said strangers. Now – war is quite a complex development, and war required an active instinct for self-sacrifice in the members of society. This active instinct was put to use in armed confrontation (war) and require its constituents somehow developed (or evolved) a prepensity to do what an authoritarian figurehead tells them to do, at great risk to their own survival. To obey leaders would then insure a significantly greater chance for surviving individuals to allowed to procreate and spread these “docile” and “military” genes. Manlyness became something to be admired and was greatly connotated with martial success, as well as a certain ruthless cruelty. We can easily see a mental tapestry of literally congenital instincts emerge in humanity favoring active racism, a persistent desire to dominate woman, a desire to be seen as “a full male” by members of the community, proud of one’s legacy and ethnicity (i.e. – racial pride) and a somewhat irrational urge to take extreme risks in confronting and potentially even murdering strangers or enemies.

So there you have it and it ain’t a pretty picture. Humanity may have wonderful inclinations but my hypothesis is that racism, ethnic nationalism, genocide, blindly following a strong male figure (what I’d call a ‘silverback’), doing markedly asinine things when following that leader, and a strong tendency of males to treat women as possession or second rate human beings – it’s all genetic and thus to a degree a pathology as well as a deterministic instinct in human group behavior.

Hi there, my name is Khannea. How are you doing?

I am a Transhumanist. I have been active calling myself Transhumanist around the mid-to-late 1990s, and have been ideologically Transhumanist since the late 1980s. I consider myself one of the best informed pro Transhumanism, Pro-Futurism, Pro-Modernism, Pro Space Colonisation, Futurological, Pro-Life Extension, Pro-Singularity activists and presenters in the Netherlands. I work closely together with Amanda Stoel (TechnoGaianism) in trying to spread a level (not too optimist/utopian, and not too pessimist/dystopian) understanding of these fields.

For that cause I am available to present these topics. I have a number of standard presentations ready, or I can prepare a presentation on a topic of your choice for which I can relatively quickly create a series of core arguments. I am, by any standard, very widely informed and oriented and do not give you the glamorous presentation – I will parse you all opportunities and dangers of exponential change in the most snarky tone I can muster.

I can safely state I am closely befriended by Giulio Prisco, David Pearce, Ben Goertzel, Philippe van Nedervelde, Aubrey de Grey, the late (?, 🙁 )Arjen Kamphuis, Amanda Stoel, Johannon BenZion, Natash Vita-Moore, Anders Sandberg – and most others know me at least by name.

Are you a media organization that desires to know more? Are you a documentary maker seeking salient quotes and insights? Are you a government agency at a loss about emerging technological trends? Are you a corporation that seeks to inspire your employees? I am available to rouse the spirits, cause brows to furrow, cause maybe a sleepless night here and there, and always seek to cause some laughter, albeit sometimes nervous.

For information, please email me at khannea.suntzu@gmail.com. I reside, party and work in particular in the Hague/Amsterdam axis.

Also be on the lookout of the drama-documentary by the name “Khannea 2070” coming out in 2020!

China – is FUCKED

Posted: 17th November 2019 by Khannea Suntzu in Uncategorized
Comments Off on China – is FUCKED

Why? Because socalled Rod From God (RfG) kinetic projectiles are expensive. They used to be strategically way more expensive to field than nukes, and outer space treaties forbids the use of orbital allocated nuclear weapons. Ballistic nukes are relatively close to target. To use a RfG you need to allocate a lot of them, in order to have strategic coverage over time. If you only have a few, fielding them against targets world wide will take a lot of time, and in a world war last thing you have is time.

So why is China fucked? Well, once a global power starts putting RfG’s in to orbit it takes literally hundreds to achieve dominance and that takes time. So when you start putting them in place you are literally saying to all your enemies guys, I am getting ready to kill you, give me a year and I’ll be totally ready to start a war of total annihilation without radioactive fallout, which pretty much means, in insane geopolitical parlance – I am getting ready to destroy all your military resources and invade, take over all your shit and make your people in to na slave race.

China isn’t stupid. They know this and they have known this for decades. they also realize now the US is starting to ramp up real cheap launch systems under SpaceX (look at this picture of a SpaceX rocket. Look at the flag on it. Look at how closely it resembles a V2)

Elon’s Godly Rod

As long as SpaceX is a private enterprise with all these grande private visions of colonizing mars, the US can maintain total plausible deniability that this isn’t in fact a deeply aggressive statement. Because it IS a deeply aggressive statement, much in the same way Germany in 1935 starting up factories mass-producing TNT “for peaceful civil engineering purposes” would be regarded as a declaration of war by France. Nonwithstanding your projections of being a peaceful beatnik, it is simly not credible.

Hippie Elon

There is no way China can match the quickly falling launch costs of SpaceE anytime soon. They know this. China knows that the US is at least half a decade ahead of China, despite all the rhetoric otherwise, to match these efforts. China thus knows that the US won’t need any stinking nuclear weapons to bring China to its knees.

Now take into account China’s attempts to consolidate the south China sea (which is simply a loud statement to the US/NATO – “make us stop doing this. I dare you, try and stop us“) or China’s threatening rhetoric towards Taiwan (“were are coming sooner rather than later“) and paranoid Khannea may decide that what’s happening in Hong Kong is a short term counterstatement from the US against these aggressions, whereas clearly the above implied threat from SpaceX is a long term statement.

What can China do?

Well expect them starting to invest a LOT more in space infrastructure very vert soon. A lot more, as in exponentially more.

Do we in the EU have a humanitarian duty in england?

Comments Off on Do we in the EU have a humanitarian duty in england?

We must sometimes face cold hard facts. I canb give you a list of cold hard facts we need to face. Climate change. Nuclear and Coal has no future. We as a human civilisation will have to stop industrial and largescale animal farming agriculture. All cars will be automated in 10 years. We will lose more than half existing jobs in the next 15 years. Plastic waste is really really bad and killing nature. Saudi Arabia is the biggest exporter of oil, and is using a lot of that money to fund terrorism. Trump is probably destroying the US as it exists today and we’ll soon see civil war. The Star Wars prequels and sequels are a cinematic abomination.

I know, it’s really horrible to tell this news to someone’s face, especially someone in total denial. These people will do whatever they can to ignore what you said and if you insist they’ll become furious.

One such non-negotiable topic is Brexit.

I recently saw a live presentation by Joris van Luyendijk, and I absolutely love the guy. When he presented angry white voters I laughed rather loud in the audience and he misread that and said “you hear that laughter? that’s what these white voters hate.” And of course he was right. A lot of people in the UK are furious with these arrogant uppity European elitists, and their damn EU rules, and their petty EU bureaucracy. Brussels! Ze Germans! And the French!

A lot of people in England are in a psychotic irrational rage and they can’t think clearly. It’s like a really bad marriage that both parties want to end at any cost, and they’ll rather burn down the house to make sure neither other gets half its resale value.

You can’t argue facts with these peope. You can’t outright tell muricans that america is a mess. You can’t tell a trucker in his face that his job is gone in a few years and he’ll have to go on welfare almost certainly. You can’t tell farmers that their industry is deeply immoral and destructive to the environment, and MUST stop growing immediately. You can’t tell someone in a car that for every euro he spends on gas about 10% goes of that euro is rerouted by Saudi Wahabbists to fund lunatics that want to kill every westerner. You can’t tell politicians in the US that climate change will competelt annihilate the american modern western way of life in less than 2 decades, if we do nothing, and reduce in wealth by about half if we take all the required actions to mitigate climate change. The list of things people are in denial about is virtually endless.

So, facts, Brexit is gearing up to become one of the worst catastrophy’s in the history of Europe. People will literally starve, cities will burn, there will be mass protests, politicians will be lynched, people will die because of lack of access to medication, people in england will have serious vitamin deficiency because of lack of fresh foods in a year, millions of jobs will be lost.

I happen to have a friend in the UK. She’s transgender so her outlook on career, schooling, social life, dignified sexual gratification, meaning, etc. is pretty precarious to begin with. She’s very young and unspeakably stressed out to begin with. Her mom is really difficult about it and apparently understands very little about everything. Clear I am worried about her, and I am pretty certain I have reason to be. If I mention to her it is looking pretty bad, she clearly is in denial. She asks me for “sources” on what I am talking about. Most lurid video I found describing the sheer horrific magnitude of what awaits is is this one.

We in the western world have become basically a bunch of spoiled assholes, myself included. The modern world IS horribly fragile and things can go horribly wrong, and in some cases this process is clearly already underway. Dmitry Orlov did some amazing presentations about this years ago, and instead of doing something about it, people are hoarding guns these days in an orgy of misantropy. Everyone hates everyone else, everyone blames anyone but themselves. The end for some of these systems will be horrifying.

The problem is the UK is walking distance away. If things go totally south we’ll get to hear the screams of despair across the north sea. We in the EU can pretty much throw up our hands and say (as Joris Luyendijk seems to be doing, “they can go fuck themselves, good riddance”) and laugh at the hilarious misfortune those stupid english idiots.

But I say we should start making some contingency plans, at the level of the collapse of the soviet union, to help the poor people in the soon former UK. Things will get real bad. They are likely to need food aid, medication, disaster relief, maybe lots of other things. We may in the EU start thinking about mass migration and refugee streams from the UK. Clearly most won’t be able to get in to the EU – we simply have no place to house, clothe, feed and care for a few million utterly angry, shellshocked chavvy brits – most of them most likely to be seething with resentment.

But I do call on my politicians to start making plans for worst case scenarios. Literally – malnourished people, people traumatized by months of civil collapse, crime, riots, institutional racism and state repression. Sure, we can endlessly go laugh about how stupid these brits are, but we have to accept that in this day and age pretty much everyone is suspectible to mass campaigns of lying, media manipulation, fake news and russian interference. The poor simpleton brits just have a collective national psychosis, and these poor people will need help soon. Let’s get ready to give it to them.

Image result for shiny happy people

Let me be clear – this article is not about me telling you what to do in life. This article is not about turning people in to “the Borg” or whatever. I am describing a new concept for most people, whereas for “transhumanists” this idea would be fairly self-evident. Other people, say people like Alex Jones, will scream bloody murder reading about this idea – and maybe they should.

If you use a scheduler, or a calender, you use a tool. If you use an answering machine and automatic scheduler, again, you use a tool. A gantt chart? A tool. You submit to a self-imposed structure in your life. My inquiry here is, how far can we take this?

Taking myself as an example (and I am positive to goes for most people), I wasted a LOT of time in my life. Having some spectrum analogue of ADHD didn’t make things easier. Have had an emotionally disheveled mother and a hyper-aggressive sociopathic father didn’t help much. Like many people, I made some structurally stupid choices, and can easily argue society did it utmost best to aggravate these choices and make them worse in the worst possible manner.

Fast forward to deep learning algorithms.

We are now in an era where advanced learning systems can recognize the most gradient and subtle of patterns in all aspects reality. In the last five years machines are self-learning to perform tasks we would have regarded as manifestation of of some kind of magic ten years ago. Every day new examples emerge of things hitherto regarded as patently impossible.

AI equal with human experts in medical diagnosis, study finds

In a few years any new car can affordably have the ability to self drive. These systems are becoming so universally safe that to me it’s pretty certain that soon cities will simply legally disallow human drivers. A few decades at most, if that. That means soon you can’t drive your manually operate lamborghini in a city like London. You have to log in to ‘citygrid’ a system that steers you around traffic jams, manages your maximum speed, protects you from accidents, drives you sustainably and efficiently to your destination. Don’t have a car that’s automated, you are not allowed in. You are fined if you do. Something like this is pretty much certain, and fairly soon.

We can unleash a system analysis on any process, and come up with meaningful algorithms that do things better than any human could have ever come up with. You can show a machine a street scene and it can now tell you what’s happening in the scene. And the most scary thing is that most people are still blissfully unaware this is happening.

So what do I propose?

I really would like a suite of advisor software – a complex intelligent self learning algorithm that’s constantly updated. This happened to Tesla’s once – friday the cars could barely movement. During the weekend software was updated and the week after people started experimenting with driving their Tesla across the entire US continent.

Can we do this with human life?

I think we can, and that’s both scary and very exciting. Imagine this – suite of advisory systems that constantly monitors your actions, choices, goals, desires, needs, dangerous urges, whatnow – and you establish goal sets with your software. Like – you want to fitness more, and be able to run a certain distance at a certain speed. Or lose weight. Or move permanently to another country and live next to the sea.

The software would have looked at millions of volunteers, each establishing similar system constraints, and would have learned how to do things, how to avoid trouble, how to get things done, how to get the most enjoyment out of life, how to not burn out, how to maximize your longevity, how not to get diabetes or cancer, etcetera. Of course you would establish boundaries. If you insist on smoking, then the software ignores that, until certain extreme tresholds would be broken, based on warning signs you stipulate yourself. You can set your software any way you like, as long as the system won’t decide you are breaking crimes or seriously hurt yourself. The best software should help you to legally get the most healthy heroin for the least amount of money – if that’s what you desire. No dount there would eventually be management software geared to run criminal enterprises, and whatnot. Terrorism even. Religious extremism. Autocratic societies might run reward schemes if you have state approved “proper behavior” citizen management software.

The software would also be flat out honest to you, like – “no you won’t be an olympic athlete” – it would tell you certain goals, desires, expectations are unrealistic and to what degree. People might listen quicker to their own software advisor than their priest or their physician.

The implications of widespread voluntary use of this software would be profound, especially if the user could enter a somewhat meaningful dialogue with the system, query it, instruct it, steer its goal sets, etc. I would tell my software certain fitness goals to coach me into, I would tell my software how to not get myself in financial trouble, I would tell my software to “gently” coax me in to societally moral, pleasant, gregarious behavior that maximizes my life enjoyment and actually helps other people to flourish in my presence. I might even set my management software to subtly negotiate with the software of other people, ‘negotiate’ goal sets with other people’s goal sets, without showing my cards so to speak. I might even set my software to financially, legally, medically, educationally or politically represent me in a manner that best serves my needs.

Modern life has become extremely stressful and inhumanly complex for a lot of people. Most people would not want to be managed in the above manner, and that would be fine, but I can most certainly see people seriously need and want such software. I can even visualise psychiatric or parental specialty packages that allow therapists algorithms to help you maintain a sane life, or raise sane, pleasant and effective kids. I arguably would have been a much better human if my parents had had access to this software.

Saying libertarians are pedophiles is just blatantly wrong. Being socialist is inherently against freedom, forcibly taking money under threat of imprisonment and death. Libertarians are for protecting the smallest minority, the individual.
— Matt Meinke

Uhm no.

1. The US Libertarian movement is overrun by pedophyles

2. Redistributive policies are pro-freedom

3. US Libertarianism is synomymous with fascist corporocracy. Libertarians consistently favor police states.

3. Libertarianism is against Freedom

4. Taxation is free. If you don’t like it you should leave.

5. US Libertarianism is largely a racist white power movement

6. “Libertarianism” does not work and has never worked in history.

7. Humanist Modernity has no reasonable alternatives than to shackle private wealth as soon as possible.

I’ll add other links and arguments soon.

Closing the EU to radicalized US americans

Comments Off on Closing the EU to radicalized US americans

If I were to describe a national organization in, say, a middle eastern or african country, that was openly and brazenly active in spreading high powered killing weapons to its members, protecting these members for any legislative constraint, and these weapons are then routinely used in mass killings, we would declare such people patently unwelcome in our society. So when then does the EU not apply equal standards when it comes to similarly radicalized elements in US society?

Post image

We are back at square one again. Several hours ago as of me writing this at least five people were massacred and many more injured in yet another mass shooting in the US state of Texas. Second in a month. First signs point to the shooting being done by a trump supporter MAGA type far right individual.

The problem is that clearly, selfevidently, exhibitionistically US society for some reason refuses to qualify far right wing violence as domestic terrorism. The FBI is rerouted towards watching environmental radicals, vets returning from wars and (in particular) antifa and native americans and black rights organizations for any signs of terrorism. White power / far right / radical christian domestic terrorism kills hundreds of times more people in US society than any of the above. Thus we in Europe should conclude the powers that be are at least tacitly sympathetic towards far right / racist / domionist causes. They consistently refuse to condemn any of these shooters.

Image may contain: text

I have long since argued US society is in a state of freefall towards Dystopian squallor. I visited the US repeatedly and lived there for some length of time and even back then I would characterize US society as pervasively a police society, claustrophobically militarized, deeply racist and decidedly unfree to anyone but its richest denizens. When I raised these criticisms they consistently fall on deaf ears with the vast majority of americans, if not arouse outright anger. But we are now in 2019, the electorate in the US somehow decided they are the only real democratic society on the planet, and they came up with someone patently and theatrically racist as donald trump. That man has no been charged with anything. I do not see any impeachment. He has not been dragged off to prison, and I have seen no credible attempts to hold him accountable in any other way. In fact I see an establisment that’s ranging from whiningly impotent, feebly terrified or utterly complict, enabling or downright collaborators with his ideology.

The EU as a single body can not change US society. But the EU must come to terms with the irreversible decline of US society. We have no way of knowing where this will end, but I am fairly certain Chris Hedges’s assessment is pretty spot on when he states the end of american empire is here, and the end will be horrifying. A major part of that descent seems based on the marriage of radicalization and epidemic availability of firearms. In specific one organisation is actively supporting the ubiquity, deadliness of these weapons and takes active steps to legally shield people who own and use these weapons from consequences.

The EU should be consistent in its border policies with regards to radicalized non EU citizens. That is why I vehemently call upon the EU leadership for a complete and total shutdown of american NRA members entering the European Union until our representatives can figure out what is going on.

T h e N a t i o n a l R i f l e O r g a n i s a t i o n

I would strongly insist we include politicians of which it can be determined they are NRA members, take NRA money and vote on behalf of this NRA. We should extend this travel ban as soon as possible to other verifiable sectarian organizations in US society of which it can be blankly determined they contribute to mass murders, such as this NRA. I say, if people support the NRA, carry an NRA card – you can’t reasonably trust them. They are actively enabling systemic and frequent mass murders in US society, for whatever reason. This kind of people do not belong in EU society, either as short term residents, or as short term visitors. Those NRA members already in the EU should be asked to leave as soon as possible, and I believe again this travel ban should include US politicians, office holders, embassy staff and diplomats.

If you agree with this demand, please please please share this article to as many people as possible.

Legislation on Asteroid Mining Debris Cloud

Posted: 16th August 2019 by Khannea Suntzu in Uncategorized
Comments Off on Legislation on Asteroid Mining Debris Cloud

Copyright 2019, Khannea Sun Tzu, article may be used with attribution

It is likely certain corporations and governments are well on our way to mining asteroids before 2050. Once asteroid mining commences in earnest, it will grow exponentially and change from a very riskprone, trial-and-error, erratic profit and small scale industry to a highly predictable, casual, well tested and insanely profitable industry in decades. The problem with exponentially expanding industries is that politicians, corporations, investers and scientists enter a peculiar insanity driven by profit margins we have not seen before on this planet. It may eventually turn out that industrial exploitation of space-based resources expands to a degree that corporate entities lose most interest in investing in terrestrial resources or markets, and that is a long term problem in its own right.

But short term, in the second and third stages of asteroid mining we are very likely to see corporations cut corners and enter a sort of feeding frenzy for select resources and ores, and use other asteroid resources in a particularly (and arguably criminally) wasteful manner. We have seen the same attritional ‘business models’ in the conquest of the americas where bison skulls were used as fertillizer in a manner we can in retrospect judge to be criminal, immoral, insane and severely lacking any longterm vision.

American bison skull pile

Near earth space is unlike any frontier we have ever tried conquering. The natural intuitions humans have evolved to deal with hunter-gatherer existence on an african savanne are certain to be quite inadequate compared to vacuum, highly radiated, highly temperature variation, free fall, extreme toxicity, extreme distances, extreme investment tresholds, extreme profit margins environment. To profit from these resources it in the initial stages it makes sense to use the most ruthless approach imaginable.

For instance – there’s a lot of water (and other volatiles) in most asteroids and this water exists as a composite of clays inside the asteroids in a semi-frozen state. By heating the asteroid insides these volatile substances can be extracted. Water is likely to be extremely valuable for colonizing space in a long term sustainable manner, but clearly the same water can also be collected in the early decades of asteroid mining to blow up parts of asteroid gravel piles. This yields two moral problems

1 – the water used in that manner escapes in to space and is carried out of the solar system via solar radiation, and

2 – this, and other ‘ruthless’ means of extracting resources is very likely to produce significant debris/particle clouds in interplanetary space.

It may seem inconceivable that water would be wasted in this manner, and likewise it may seem inconceivable that “debris clouds” would be a problem in the vastness of space. It is right now very difficult to estimate the impact of just these two problems of (1) wasting precious resources in the short term we may desperately need in long term development and (2) haphazzardly dumping a kind of particle pollution in interplanetary space that may pose long term hazards for follow-up missions. But as asteroid mining heats up we may see an exponential number of each every more cutthroat competetive and immorally shortsighted missions tearing up asteroids. This won’t be a problem when we are doing small missions to a few asteroids, but imagine half a century later when we see tens of thousands of very sizable missions actively digging in tens of thousands of asteroids anually and everyone can see the ensuing problems for consecutive spaceflight. We surely do not want an accidental kessler syndrome around the earth moon system, so we most certainly do not want to induce a slow-motion interplanetary kessler syndrome in the inner solar system and asteroid belt.

We can not stop all cutting corners. But the international community can determine that certain cost cutting and ruthless strategies for asteroid colonization to be objectionable for long term development of very large, and relatively fragile infrastructure (or real estate) in the inner solar system. It would be tragic if an exponential development of hundreds or thousands of O’Neill habitats, each potentially housing many thousands to ten thousands of highly educated, very affluent, highly productive tax paying and voting constituents were needlessly aborted because of the shortsighted nature of some corporate revenue extraction models.

Currently there is no viable legislative, legal or political model to impede such practices, so we end up with certain nations more or less dictating terms, with everyone else more or less consenting out of docility, short sighted naivety, or poltical expediency. The problem is that afore alluded to nations do not have a stellar record on yielding particularly long-term oriented business practices.

There is an immediate solution however – governments and corporations trading resources from space (moons, asteroids, comets, planets or otherwise) can be taxed for offering these goods, and we can make taxation dependent in large part on the sustainability of the extraction methods they use.

It would be wise for governments to come to understand the potential impact of asteroid mining, the technologies and sciences involved and have specialists in these fields prepare a cursory legislative framework to avoid disasters down the line.

Indian guys, please stop already

Comments Off on Indian guys, please stop already

*Goes for arab, african, etc guys too.

Anyone who wants to use this post as a reply when Indian guys come whining on Facebook chat, please do.

One slice of cheese is pure heaven. I mean, one slice of Cheese is pure heaven. Now eat 30, and suddenly it becomes a bit less so. I mean, I like people, I like talking to people, and I like people in general. I like talking about content and meaningful stuff. Too much of the same people however gets problematic quickly.

So I get, like so many with a female exterior, ceaselessly accosted by Indian guys. I mean it’s like a constant barrage on facebook. I go online, and one of these utterly 45 thousand in a dozen cartboard cutout mustached guys, all the same hair, all the same half open buttoned up shirt, most a “a bit overweight”, all imposingly polite, “they just want to get to know me and want to be friends”.

So I tried that, talking to these guys. Like in the last ten years a few hundred times probably, and I have amassed a massive statistical understanding of Indian guys and their grande plan. And when I say Indian guys, I probably also mean Pakistani guys, and an assortment of guys from africa, the middle east andsoforth. They start chatting, generally one after another, in a straightforward conveyor belt of polite inquiries in what I do, where I live, whether or not I have pets, what I do for a living, what suggestions I have for studies, if I would come over one day (I mean, Ralpindi is amazing!) and on and on it goes. It’s clear they signal another (“hey dudes, I am working on this one right now, if she doesn’t bite, you go try”) and they keep coming. It’s a bit like the 150th slice of cheese for me. But I still try to nibble occasionally and figure out what it is these kids want. And I am absolutely 100% certain their all want the following ..

  1. a white woman being theirs, doesn’t matter if she’s over 40, they think you are “an amazing looking MILF”. I kid you not. They say that out loud. they use inside head words and say them. They don’t just want to be friends, hell no, they want to fuck, and fuck like utterly depraved, clinically psychiatric sexually barren, utterly inexperienced, angry hate sex, completely riddled with male chauvinist misconceptions, routinely porn addicted, half crazed with lust fucking. And when they read on my profile that I might be construed as sexually active, they just go NUTS. Try it, it’s an uninterrupted series of sexually escalating questions that will, give them half a chance, veer directly in to extreme forms of sexual deviancy.
  2. Money. Indian guys, or whatever variant of that dujour, live as a rule in countries that are dismal and dystopian compared to where I live. I don’t envy them, and in fact it’s horrible what these kids have to endure. So, yeah I understand, they want and really need money. But they can not conceive of the idea that in “The Netherlands” someone would actually be dirt poor. These kids can actually become a bit annoyed, acting insulted when you claim you cant spare any money – that for me five euro is “next days food” most likely. Turns out Indians live in a haze of being convinced they are mostly a developing country, and the Netherlands is “developed” and is thus exponentially more comfortable than India. In some parts that might be the case, but developed doesn’t mean easy, not by a long shot. In terms of life pleasure, Netherlands is comparatively, contextually just as frustrating and daunting as any country in the world. If you live it, your mind instantaneously recallibrated to context. Yeah I know I’d probably be dead in a week having actually live and survive and work in Golgotta or Lahore. In the Netherlands I survive because I get a princely fortune of disability which allows me to like, eat warm 4 times a week. When I spell out the amount, Indians probably thing I am someone retired after a long career. It’s not, it’s subsistence level poverty here, no minding the fact you can probably buy a villa for that money over there.
  3. They want OUT, right now. These kids would do anything (or they soon make clear implied or outright) to get the hell out of where they are. They have no clue what to do next if they were teleported here. I bet most of them would be starving hysterically panicked in a few days, utterly shellshocked and be deported back from whence they came. They’d come back with tales of “how horrible the Netherlands is” and “how strange habits these people have” and that “living here as an Indian guy is a nightmare” and “women there are cruel and all lesbians, as they want nothing to do with me“. It’s all a bit like winning the lottery, everyone things winning the lottery is “experientally”, fun. I guarantee you it is not. It is one giant ball of coagulated stress and disappointment and loneliness. The same is true of Indians, who glamorize the good western European life and golden land of opportunities. These kids are gruesomely mistaken and the vats majority of them who would actually arrive here would, even if they could stay, flee back in months, crying. That is to say the Netherlands is not much of an easier country than theirs. It’s probably much easier, absolutely. But they thing moving here is some kind of best they can achieve in life, especially having also #1 and #2 above.

The thing is for every Dutch woman with blonde or red hair and bright blue or green eyes, there are what, 150.000 Indian guys with all the same shirt, all the same fluffy black hair, all the same wiggly head motions, all the same moustache (we don’t like mustaches here, as a rule) and all the same honey up polite and insincere sounding conversation. I can’t help you guys. I really can’t even if you were the Indian variant of Leo Dicaprio, charming, witty, intelligent and a sexual tyrannosaur. There is absolutely no credible pathway for me to make any difference in your life, and after you invariably comes another in March Of The Clones, and my mood deteriorates a little in having myself and my petulant spoiled rotten first world problems, and how goddamn racist I apparently are. Because that is what I am, right if I get annoyed by a barrage of endless utterly desperate, bag of liquid marshmellow sweet and polite mustachey men? “

Guy: “So you are a promiscuous woman?”

Me: “Yeah but I am a male to female transgender”

Guy: “Do you still have a penis”

Me: “You are not really supposed to ask

Guy: “So you do anal?”

Probably a little.

But guys, give it a rest. Change your strategies if you want to play this game, and significantly. You individually might think “what is this for horribly rude kind of witch” (bobs head left and right in a decidely stereotypical and marginally racist manner) and they don’t know the experience on my end. They don’t have a frigging clue.

Now – when I quote them this article, they do.
And then I block em.

My movie pitch

Posted: 12th June 2019 by Khannea Suntzu in Uncategorized
Comments Off on My movie pitch

If you are reading this, and you are concerned about climate change, please send this to 10 of your friends, via social network, whatsapp, messenger or email and ask them to do the same.

Elevator Pitch

It is the year 2075. Queue opening shots of a destroyed planet ravaged by climate change, small wars, the results of a few nuclear wars, mass biosphere destruction, extreme weather and superstorms, major ocean die-off and anoxia, mass migration, Europe suffering a decade of extreme winters, sea level rise, political corruption and unconstrained runaway technological advances. Big letters on screen say…

3.2 degrees

The planet is clearly dying. Population may have levelled off at 10.5 billion and remaining state systems have reverted to a global tyranny just to keep everyone alive. The state is disfunctional and constantly held ransom by rich elites, radical factions, irreconcilable religious factions, terrorists, climate radicals – each demanding an ever larger share of what’s left. Most people have no work, no discinable sense of purpose, living on a subsistence level basic income, are close to suicide and despair.

In this bedrock of bad news the viewer gets to see a series of event where the state starts persecuting those it holds responsible. Emphasis that due to advancing life extension technologies people that were in their middle ages at the start of the 21st century are now physically younger due to medical treatments intentionally rationed to only benefit certain elites. And now the state is out to punish those it deems responsible.

Scenes depicting mass murder, pogroms, lynchings, people blamed for “the mess” trying to flee assassinations and mob vengeance. The movie is about a seemingly young, very attractive couple that turns out to have been middle aged oil company PR people in 2020. Back in the 2020s they tried to get data published on catastrophic climate change, but nobody listened to them so they just kept their heads down for fear of being fired from their comfortable careers. They didn’t do enough, and now blind hysterical justice is out to get them. They lived in a beautiful estate in Florida but it flooded so they fled to the Midwest in the 2030s. Then the Midwest turned to desert and a complete collapse of state services, and they fled to Canada in 2040. Then Canada started to aggressively deporting US citizens in the 2050s and they ended up in a refugee camp in Wisconsin. Then the camps became dystopian hellscapes and they fled to the New York camps in 2060. Those were struck by epidemics in 2070 and now they live in the gargantuan refugee arcologies in Queens. And now the kangaroo courts are closing in on them, and they are trying to flee New York by boat. Problem is, half a million people are trying to fix the same thing. Difference is they still have money and they have a plan. And they have four children.

Opening scene

The planet from space. Visible are all continent one by one – most are pale yellow. Parts of the oceans are tinged brown, reddish or in some parts a pale violent. The camera zooms in the North American easterm coast. It’s clearly visible that the US midwest has become a desert and very few people live there. New York has become unrecognizable – protected by massive sea dikes. Military presence everywhere. Major parts of the surrounding burroughs innundated by refugee camps. The camera shoots over the city depicting massive fusion energy reactor complexes and surrounding these are endless teeming agricultural structures tens of stories high. It is raining, and the city looks in major dismay and squallor. Some buildings are vaguely recognizable, most buildings are new, exhibiting strange new design technologies. Everywhere the world looks conceptually unrecognizable in numerous ways, as if visiting a strange country. Icons on commercial buildings look unlike any language, mixing with many known languages. Very few concepts of corporations look recognizable. Buildings look brutalist.

The couple has to contend with a society which is significantly more alien than the year 1969s is when compared to 2019. Clothes are alien. Technology is alien. The couple has major problems adapting to modernity, despite their medically rejuvenated bodies. Flashback scenes show them in their 40s, and overweight and not all that attractive – scenes set in 2075 show them as very fit, attractive but just gaunt due to malnourishment and stress and medical neglect. The couple tries to build a sailing yacht to try to flee to Iceland, but it turns out Iceland has been commandeered by rich elites as refugee spot, and during the movie suffers a government coup by former military elites that start murdering the other former millionaire and billionaires elites there. Scenes of iceland that’s completely unrecognizable. So the couple and their kids start deliberating how to leave. The movie is a constant back and forth of scenes from their life, and it depicts how society quickly devolves due to the compound effects of climate change until it reaches a free-fall global collapse and die-off by the 2040s. The movie constantly hammers down the consequences of climate denialism, and how humanity did “too little to late” and “nobody was willing to give up their standard of living”.

The couple and their four kids then find a totally bizarre way out – one of their daughters is married to a scientist that has been developing a technology that allows for interdimensional travel from world-line to parallel world-lines. This person claims to have a portal system that allows for the couple and their four kids to flee to a world line that’s painted as “one where things went right” and the world was saved. Scenes of such a world.

As the couple scrambles ruthlessly to secure access to the portal the law closed in on them. They are cornered, no where to run. They sell their boat and bet all on the portal escape route.

It is then revealed there is no portal escape route. There are no parallel dimensions. It was all a scam. They liquidated everything they had and are now as poor as everyone else. They have nowhere to run, and the alleged scientist flees New York with their money. One but last scene of the movie is they are lynched by a hysterical mob out for vengeance. You see them die, one by one murdered by people that have absolutely no idea how to fix the world’s problems but can only lash out blindly against those it holds responsible.

End scene – scientist sails on a large improvised sailing yacht to a mid atlantic island out of the hurricane lanes, where things are more or less survivable and clearly will do great. To do this he betrayed his wife (the daughter), his kids, and the family. He has a decade of fairly acceptable life left because he betrayed the family but eventually the desintegration of the planet is likely to catch up with him as well. He has only postponed the inevitable. You see signs of guilt on his face.

A waste of time – Stephen Chen on “Gene Editing”

Posted: 3rd June 2019 by Khannea Suntzu in Uncategorized
Comments Off on A waste of time – Stephen Chen on “Gene Editing”

I recently read Stephen Chen’s article in the South China Morning Post and rarely have I been so dumfounded and infutiated by an opinion piece such as this one. Let’s hope Stephen is just rehashing the opinion of researcher Professor Yang Hui. Yan Hui recently made significant progress in editing faulty genes in humans, reducing respectively the error rates and failure rate of selective gene editing significantly. Yan Hui takes it upon himself to warn the world for ‘mis-use’ of these technologies. He calls on the world waking up to alleged dangers, and “implementing world-wide rules” to make sure no disasters happen. “The technology is similar to weapons and drugs. Immoral use, such as the creation of a super-baby, should be banned forever,” Yang said.

This is essentially a nonsense statement.

In the 1940s it need vast technological resources and manpower on an industrial scale to create the first nuclear bomb. Project Manhattan took 130 thousand people and in today’s dollars 23 billion. In the old days it required major effort to create revolutionary new technologies. Now a small dedicated team working in utmost secrecy can make sweeping advancements in total secrecy.

Yan Hui compares his technology to “drugs”. He conveniently ignores the fact that decades of a world-wide war on drugs have miserably failed. When there is ravenous demand for a product or service or technology, people will do whatever they can to get their hands on the product. To make such a product effectively illicit instantaneously creates a black market, and more or less hands over the legislation, product quality control and distribution to either deeply corrupt politicians, or cutthroat criminal kartels and gangsters.

Just try and visualize how much of a market genetic editing of babies comprizes. Imagine if a typical above middle class parent had access to a short vacation somewhere in east asia and respective parents would come back, mom pregnant. No one would be the wiser, even if after some physician would notice some genetic anomalies with the infant. What do you do to parents who pay for a service that removes genetic ailments, real or imagines from the unborn infant? Who thinks for a moment that once these technologies become anywhere near affordable for billionaires they will not be used? Now imagine that the technologies become available, some kind of media scandal ensues, they become illegal and are henceforth and as a direct result of this “war on genetic misschief” only available to well connected and very wealthy parents.

Maybe we should. If we look at the track record of cocaine dealers, it’s clear that black markers produce results far better than legal and legislated markets. Cocaine and heroin prices have dropped precipitously over the years, whereas quality of these products have sharply increased. At the time time “legal” medical companies use proven predatory US patent law to hike up prices of critical drugs (such as insulin, for peace sake! – a product that was originally intended by its developers to be for free) to the point patients start dying in droves. So color me a sceptic with regards to the interests and goals of Professor Yan Hui. Maybe he knows that once we legislate it’ll become a black market, and he’ll be rich. Or it’ll become a legal, highly patented, highly corporatized market and he’ll become even richer.

I call upon you my reader to just for a few minutes try to visualize how much you can ‘fix’ in a human genome. Look around you at your colleagues at work, to your family, to people in the street and anyone with a shred of humanity must conclude the human species is genetically a mess. Most people have some form of genetic malady, no matter how subtle. Even minor afflictions cause major suffering world wide. Asthma. Color Blindness. Bad teeth. Diabetes.

But even something we so take for granted as “a valuable life lesson” such as someone being ugly is soul destroying. Uglyness destroys lives and careers. No one wants to be ugly, yet everyone regards other people being born ugly “something they shouldn’t whine or complain about”. Gods forbid ugliness would be covered for medical treatments – people would have to pay more dollar to fix the neighbours butt-ugly kids, amirite?

We made massive, sweeping progress this last few decades people would fight tooth and nail, to the death, to not give up. Try pry smartphones from a few billion people’s fingers, and you’ll likely to get lynched. two decades ago just the mention of the very idea of smartphones and my mom and stepdad would get verbally abusive that “such things are an abomination in addictive personality disorders”. Even if they were right, nobody would give a flying hoot these days.

Genetic therapies for the unborn are just like cars, computers, games, mobile phones, vacations to thailand – etc.. At first they are buggy, hideously expensive and unpleasant. A few years later they are not. At first nobody but some rare few eccentrics and hipsters would dream about paying for them. A few years later my mom is inseperable from her samsung.

Chinese science minister warns scientists not to overstep ethical bounds after He Jiankui’s gene-edited babies scandal

The article above decides halfway to call major progress in these treatments “a schandal”. I again wonder what is wrong with these people. Maybe they should have been genetically edited for more compassion, pity or intelligence.

In the early 1990s I saw the emergence of internet. At first internet was laughed at. It was called a “fad” that would quickly “disappear”. Then people start demanding strict laws against “internet”. Even now well-meaning imbeciles call for “legislation” against a range of things, such as “wikileaks”, “pornography”, “bitcoins”, “illegally downloaded music” or “anonymous comments under youtube videos”. All that busywork feels to me a lot like the rantings of some US senator when he haphazzardly, foaming at the mouth labels the internet “a series of tubes”. It’s simply old people who have no idea what the hell they are talking about (my mom, 10 years ago, regarding smartphones) or deeply corrupt and self-serving politicians or corporate executives that wish to cash in by betting on either side of this technology. If the technology escapes the legislative clutches of a all these useless government interference by a geriatrocratic and chronically future-shocked billionaire politicians (as internet did for a decade) then they won’t make any money on their diabolical patents. Or if the government does’t do its best to try and legislate it, there won’t be black markets and these people also won’t make any money.

Sad thing is – nobody will listen. Even if I produce a 700 page PDF listing all genetic afflictions that cost society (taxpayers) trillions, create untold human suffering, the typical voter/consumer/constituent whatever will not be able to intellectually associate genetic therapies with the eradication of those afflictions.

Like my mom, ten years ago, had no idea what a smart phone would do, or why it would make a difference in her life. Very very very sad. Maybe we as a species all need to get our genetics altered to increase our functional intelligence by a significant amount, because probably right now we are just too collectively stupid to know what’s good for us.

I guarantee you – later this century we’ll know real well. And not having your kids genes fixed will be reason parents go to prison for child abuse. I guarantee it.
