Homo Optimus.. coming soon to a planet near you

Recommended Posts

Whatever could go wrong 😂

I kinda always figured that much of future combats will be fought by robots (and reduce the actual casualties). They only mentioned a few things that are at least technically possible (although who knows when you are given a 30 year time frame). The eye, ear and muscle thing doesn't seem too unrealistic. The "direct neural enhancement of the human brain for two-way data transfer" is a bit vague though 😂 

I can see this on the battlefield, but among regular society, I don't know. Kinda weird if you think about it, I wouldn't do it. Then again, these things do secure a job for people like me 😂 What I can see them using stuff like this for is for treatment of symptoms of diseases though.

I'll have to check out the full report when I get the chance. I'm a bit skeptical about US 'councils' when it comes to academic stuff ever since I had to go through what was called the President's Council on Bioethics work (which was just subpar) on some memory enhancement stuff for my thesis. But the US military has a lot of money, so the DoD Biotechnologies for Health and Human Performance Council could be a whole lot better.

(just on a sidenote, "armytimes.com" 😂 what the heck 😂)

      I've been searching for an old anime that I once watched long ago - around the same time in which Armitage III was still being shown (I was able to find that anime, and now I'm looking for the other one that I watched around that same time) - I want to say 2005-06?
      The general scheme I recall about this anime was there were military personnel working with scientists that were trying to stop these huge spectral-like monsters that could basically float and fly anywhere. The monsters could pass through any solid objects, and when they passed through the human soldiers they would die instantly. 

      There's two scenes that I remember distinctly:
      1.  A group of soldiers were going out on a mission in a cargo plane - there were these very long spectral monsters whizzing by in the distance - the pilots were trying to avoid them. Cut scene to one of the spectral monsters just going right through the cargo plane - leaving it physically unharmed but instantly killing the soldiers it phased through. It wasn't so much messy but the soldiers definitely died painfully!
      2. In another scene, a special group of soldiers are coming back from a mission - upon their return, each of the soldiers are checked for whether or not they contain traces of the spectral monsters they fought against - one soldier was indeed feeling unwell and was placed into a sci-fi surgical table - a machine was then operated on by another scientist who was searching for and eliminating the traces of whatever this thing was from the soldier's body. They had to sift around quite a bit in order to find and destroy the foreign entity, each second passing bringing the soldier closer to his body's breaking point.
      I apologize if this is hard to describe, and whether its appropriate to just ask for help this way.
      If anyone has any good tips on searching through sci-fi anime from back in those days, I would really appreciate it!

      I'm about 5 episodes in & so far I like it which surprises me because it's all about killer mutant cockroaches in space & I hate roaches with a burning passion so go figure. I was actually so freaked out after the 1st episode that I cleaned my house from top to bottom. And no, I'm not exaggerating. I literally swept & mopped all the floors, did the laundry, took out all the trash, re-arranged the kitchen & scrubbed the surfaces in my kitchen & bathroom until they shined. **shudders** Ugh! I mean I like other bugs & insects but roaches...no thanks! 
      Anyway, curious to see if anyone else here has seen this show & if so, what are your thoughts?
