    Family is an anchor that makes it hard to escape.  Trapped in bubble universe, no escape but the QS option, see you on the other side.


  • Half-light, Half-matter created in the lab

    @Richard.Hein:Yes, that's a much more clear explanation. I can see now that the holding/emptying of photons could be states for the material as part of a quantum computing physical processor; I'm not sure what the other two states might be, perhaps the material itself can hold electrons as our binary systems hold state today. 1, 0, light, dark and permutations...

    Hey John, remember this?  http://channel9.msdn.com/Forums/Coffeehouse/236461-Scientists-teleport-two-different-objects#c103f7c04dd0541a1a49d9dec001a890b

    Maybe it was actually half-light, half-matter, and the quantum state was not really teleported in the traditional sense.  Physicists have indeed also shown that quantum state can be separated from a particle (Quantum Chesire Cat).  There's been a huge amount of progress in this area, watch and see how fast it grows.  We may soon be able to simulate quantum mechanics in a classical network.  In fact we can now, but I'm talking about the blueprints for the bridge ... actually multiple bridges are being constructed as we speak, but they are NP-complete bridges on big data that are still going to take Deep Thought to answer, and the common language describing it is still like children babbling.  Optical mines are required.  Then we'll be able to reprogram DNA individually, securely, privately, and safely and cure all genetic diseases forever.  That's my motivation for working on any of this anyways.

    They have shown convincingly that by coupling a rather standard dielectric cavity to exciton-polaritons in a monolayer of molybdenum disulphide, they could actually reach this strong coupling regime with a very large binding strength

    I always thought this was possible :)

    LOL, yeah, it's a crappy summary.  Here's the Nature article link:  http://www.nature.com/nphoton/journal/v9/n1/full/nphoton.2014.304.html

    This is worth at least a few Nobel prizes, don't you think?  Wow, I'm glad I lived to see this day.  We will be 3D printing half-light half-matter this time next year. 


  • Lets image that your Windows license included a virtual machine running in Azure

    @TheTraveler:  I think a better solution is something like storj.io.  It's open source.  Blockchain based and encrypted, distributed cloud storage that pays out btc to users that host drive storage space.  I have been thinking about this before hearing about storj.io, and I have the additional idea of splitting up parts so that you'd require 51% of the network computational power plus parity check data to restore parts from the cloud.  So even in the future, a brute force attack against stored data (i.e. if I stored encrypted copies over time, then I could run a brute force attack on that data over time and yield potentially sensitive information, so long term to protect the data in the future, it would also have to be split up and the address locations only exposed to the public key holder.  Something like that anyways.  Just spit ballin' the idea, but storj.io has already implemented much of this idea and I am going to try it out.  :)  It's certainly a competitor to other cloud providers, and offers security and long term protection against censorship, or manipulation of data (think 1984) and a form of version control (gitchain + storj.io has to be).  And a ton more.  I could go on and on.

    Didn't Elon Musk come out with a warning against AI? A Terminator scenario?


    Others used the word Terminator, but yeah, he warns that AI could be more dangerous than nukes.  I definitely agree, but in an interview he was discussing that tweet and talked about recently investing in Vicarious, which develops AI software, precisely because it's so important and potentially dangerous.

    Nevertheless, the thing about the "auxons" in the article I linked to is that they are stupid.  The type of AI used for such machines would be for things like motor control, communication and coordination, but they are by design, simple and stupid and have specific jobs.  Of course, if some other AI took control of them then yeah, Terminator. ;)

    But, it would be your work.  And I bet it would be much more fulfilling.

    Yeah.  I would build these:  http://discovermagazine.com/1995/oct/robotbuildthysel569

    All I need is about $100 million (oops, I meant $100 billion) in 1995 dollars.  Actually, it should be much less expensive to build self replicating machines of this size now.  Perhaps we don't have these yet because people think nanobots are the way, but how can we master nanobots without being able to work on the macroscale?  In general, robotics still has a long way to go and needs an Elon Musk like supporter to bootstrap it and really make things happen.  IMO.  Elon has discussed terraforming a bit, so it's not unreasonable to think someday Solar City will build machines like these. 


  • 2,5 Biolion only for one game ?

    Hopefully the check to Mojang will not have the same misspelling on it.  ;)

  • 2,5 Biolion only for one game ?

    Minecraft isn't just a game anymore; it's a major brand. Lego and toys and various other products also bring in revenue, so I think it is underestimated.  It's quite possible that Minecraft will be around for as long as a toy like Lego.  Considering the possibilities, it's probably a good deal.

    Definitely! ;)  That's a good name.  Tether.
