We wont need no education!

But no, before you ask, the video isnt Pink Floyd! Lol!

Beyond a few special people, most of my finds on Facebook, and Twitter nowadays tend to come down to pot luck! Those near the top when I look in, or on those ‘you may have missed’ feeds on Twitter, which I guess play to my favorites anyway? So yes, nowadays, the random ones tend to be the ‘pot luck’ factor, of being near the top when I log in, and yes, the Tweet that led me to this was one of those.

Yes, I would love to have that done to me, but I guess that will surprise no one? Yes, wouldnt it be so much easier if we could learn new information in life, by a method like this? I know, there are plenty who would say no, but me, I couldnt learn enough that way, believe me!

And for people like me, its not just the complex stuff (though it would be very handy for that) that I’d love to learn that way, but yes, maybe I could get my head around the metric measurement system used generally here in Europe now, as opposed to the good old Imperial system that I grew up with, and thankfully the US still uses! I can cope when they are all in the same unit, but when you get questions, and one measurement is in millimeters, another in centimeters, and others in meters, yes, my brain goes to mush! I know, feet, yards, and miles are more complex, but at least I’ve grown up with them all my life.

So, if something could upload this knowledge into my mind, by brain stimulation, using electricity, yes, win, win for me! So yes, if those scientists want someone they can try all that out on, and they can even make it a lengthy process if they wish, feel free to let me know! Oh fine, the longer the process, the better, but… ­čśë

Right, video time. They say this is rare, and they’re right, Gary Numan smiles, thats rare! Oh, and a very young Billy Currie trying to look cool too!

Working in the future

Judging by some of the stuff I’ve seen in the last couple of days, its either a good thing, or a shame that I’m coming to the end of my working career, as I suspect finding work, for simple humans might be a lot harder in the next 20 years or so.

Oh, you want examples, oh fine

In a sense, this concept might actually make it easier for people to find work, though I suspect that the pay levels may drop, because just about anyone could do it! Just imagine, you need someone to do a specific job, you just slip this memory cell into their mind, and they know exactly how to do this complex task. Yes, at present, its far from that point, but fast forward things 10, or 20 years, and…

And yes, I suspect at that point in the future, being able to think just like your favourite movie star (or whoever), for a large fee, you get my drift? And yes, to have the thoughts of Jean Harlow wafting through my mind, you bet I would!

Of course, by then, you may not need to leave home to go to work

So fine, they arent actually turning the people into robots (you cant have everything in life), but I must admit, the idea of working as a robot being appeals to me no end. As I did say to someone though, given that there would be no need for said person to be in the country, let alone the shop itself, how would it affect national employment rules? Would you be regarded as an employee in the country you’re in, or the country you’re working in?

Oh, and lastly, when you are just thinking you’re safe, dont bet on it!

See, robots are already far smarter than you think? ­čśë

As I say, maybe its for the best that I’m only 10 years from retirement lol! Though if you’re offering to turn me into one of those working robots, or fit me with those memory cells… ­čśë

Right, the video. Not so much are friends electric, as are robots electric, and replacing humans?

Are friends electric?

Yes, as a few at the Garden at least will have noticed, I’ve got involved in writing something again. No, not a full story, even if I have got the best part of an idea in my head for one. I thought I might get chance to work on it this week, but in all honesty, despite being on holiday, I seemed to find plenty of other things to keep me tied up (no, not that sort of tied up unfortunately, lol), and it hasnt made any progress, and its not likely to now. Given the inspiration and setting is Kansas, maybe next April, and a trip there might cure that. Of course, if that trip followed the story, I would be staying there, as a mind controlled farmers wife, so wouldnt get written anyway, but no, I dont see that happening lol!

I dont know what you’d call it actually, some might describe it as a roleplay, some might call it a joint story effort. Me, I only know its fun to do, that I’ve got a good partner to do it with, and providing time issues for both of us dont get in the way, it might last a while. Shock horror, it seems like I will be playing a ‘robot’ for some of the time, albeit one very much still in human form, though hypnotised to think otherwise at times. I dont think I will end up fully robotised in the story, but nothing would totally surprise me lol! Being hypnotised to think I’m permanently┬áone though might be a whole different matter!

To be honest, I have no real concept of what life would be like as a robot. I have played at being one for a couple of hours at a time, but thats it, no hypnosis , just my imagination, not even a silver suit. Yes, equally I’ve been hypnotised, but not to become a robot. Who knows, one of these days I might just get to put the two together, and experience life as a robot? I would definitely want it to be of the ‘passenger in my own body’ type, no point in being a robot if you have control over your movements! The mindless robot might be an incredible experience, but as has been pointed out, if you were truly mindless, how would you know what you did? Also it leaves your mind a bit more open, which would be fun with the right person, but otherwise…? And no, I dont expect to find a truly reputable hypnotist into mindless┬árobot play lol! Or even the tamer type, I suspect?

But hopefully one day I will. ­čśë

Clearly the idea of having the mind controlled by something other than hypnotism appeals even more to me, but is even less likely to happen in all honesty. As to being fully┬átransformed, or even having my mind downloaded, not possible as far as I know sadly, temporarily or otherwise. And yes, I’d still love to at least RP a full robot transformation with someone, but doesnt seem like that is going to happen now.

But yes, this project with mcguy should be fun all the same.

The video, well the title is a giveaway here, I guess? ­čśë
