Belief

Dear fellow coma victims, I don’t really believe in complete recovery from coma because nothing much has happened, except for leaving the wheelchair. After 9 years I still use a stick, but feel that I may soon be able to walk without one again. I suspect repetitive activity again and again affirms the new pathways […]

Recovery

Fellow coma victims, as always time to return to the main point of this blog. Coma can be debilitating depending on where and how the brain was damaged. My walking is deteriorating again, a distance of 5 minutes now takes at least 15. I had improved to maybe 10. There has always been ups and […]

Artificial

Who would disagree with Stephen Hawking, AI is dangerous. I also think it offers some hope for a chaotic species in its dispassionate thought. Artificial Intelligence has come a long way. It now performs surgery, drives cars, builds houses, grows food, but it will never enjoy escargot. Ultimately AI will provide us an opportunity for […]

Reality

American cognitive psychologist Donald Hoffman says humans don’t perceive the actual but fabricate a reality through consciousness as a means of communication between conscious agents.. An example, when a computer displays an image the underlying data isn’t an image, its 1’s and 0’s. Our reality too isn’t the actual. He says evolution isn’t evidence of […]

Nothingness

Following my descent into coma I have considered the effects thereof questioning nothingness. I now think of reality in different terms, perhaps everything is derived from consciousness. They say in quantum that matter requires consciousness to exist, perception to actualise a state. There is a school of thought that suggests all things including matter are derived […]

SpaceX

SpaceX has stimulated human fascination, we are becoming explorers again. Elon Musk’s Tesla car attempts to address global warming, Neuralink human technology integration, but for SpaceX to explore the universe takes the cake. He intends to send his first rocket to Mars in 2024. We once explored the Earth with ships, soon the universe with […]

Film

During this time of Covid I thought to suggest some Netflix TV… Social Dilemma  About social media. I am mostly positive about technology, I want to see how AI develops as it holds promise for our civilisation. The problem with social media is human. In life we seek public approval, now we can seek that […]

Democracy

At the last US presidential election America voted in a failed capitalist. Trump’s business had just survived bankruptcy in court, he has so much debt. There is also questions about his college education, indeed his intelligence hasn’t been proven. If Russia can influence a US election by Facebook, I too must give it a go. […]

Simulation

Humans will one day create Simulation, a virtual reality like the film “the Matrix“. Perhaps today we live in a simulation of the year 2020, why not? Indeed if we do invent simulation we will readily use it to time travel, experience that day according to what we know about it. The link below suggests […]

Coma

Dear fellow coma victims, I think I’ve discovered something about recovery from coma because of Covid and social distancing. The new pathways in the brain require regular stimulation otherwise they returns to empty space, it again becomes a virgin pathway. The new pathway is not permanent, if not used regularly you must teach again. My […]

CRISPR

When we cut a person’s DNA double helix, as it repairs itself we can force a change in their DNA through the RNA in a CRISPR enzyme. By editing the DNA code of an embryo you can dramatically change a person: the shape of their face, their IQ, height, propensity for cancer. The documentary Human […]

Run

Coma victims, it seems the brain’s neurological rewiring after coma is not certain. I suspect the brain often tries to use the old faulty pathway because of familiarity. Maybe for a time it oscillates between the old and new route as it tries to establish new pathway for that information. A suspicion given I’m not […]

Racism

Protests are occurring globally because of George Floyd’s murder in the US by police, and the ability to share information through social media. Indeed black lives matter, equality is right but we’ve never achieved it. We should become truly equal in all things. I cannot understand the motivation for racism. We should protest, if in […]

Cyborg

To become cyborg, apart from making the human body machine like with implants maybe one day we will be able to transfer our consciousness into a robot, like the film ‘Transcendence’. It doesn’t matter if your body is metal or organic if your consciousness remains. Would it be you without your heart? Intelligence has become […]

Beggars

The trouble between Hong Kong and Beijing at the moment is not about democracy but capitalism. In my opinion communism aims for equality whereas capitalism’s interest is money. Forget trickle down economics, there are so many beggars today. I’m a beggar, equality please, we don’t need money if we share. I think we should move […]

Covid

We needed a human reboot because of global warming, Coronavirus has provided that and proven that we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Like the Spanish Flu early in the 20th century Coronavirus has taken many lives but it has also proven we can change. Maybe we’ll choose to focus on life itself and take steps […]

Look Out

After 7 years I claim to have recovered from coma. Getting better takes a very long time, here are a couple of ideas that might help others. I feel it important to address issues as soon as they are noticed, physical or mental. To address issues early makes a difference because the brain is rebuilding, […]

Bushfires

Visiting Australia, climate change is taking hold. My German nephew said studies at Marburg university suggested a more dramatic El Nino about now, they were correct. Only by my observation, I don’t know the facts with regard to El Nino. So many bushfires in much of the continent, little rain. There is no more moisture […]

Sexism

Having seen an item about sexism on TV and previously writing about another human difference, race, I again thought to comment. Commonly the term sexism refers to a perceived intellectual inequality, of course there are physical differences. Women hold a smaller number of powerful positions, in government or authority, CEO for example, certainly not the […]

Warming

We should simply stop all greenhouse gas emissions globally. Make all emitting activities illegal and force renewable technology. Accounts of global warming are catastrophic. If we don’t want to go the way of the dinosaurs and become extinct we must take action now, today. We are killing all life on the planet. The oceans are […]
