This thread is final, objective proof positive that not everything happens for a reason.

The current iteration of my ego is such that I can't imagine being predominantly "Us" rather than "Me" but who knows, maybe this will pass as I gradually slide into the new hyper-consciousness.

I think we're reconfiguring our cognition. Who remembers phone numbers anymore? Who remembered seven digit numbers before there were phones? As tech does more stuff for us we can offload more and more of our cognitive function to it. GPS is better at nav than a brain so why bother using inferior brain-nav systems? Habit? Of course the downside is, unused functions will atrophy.

Once we have ubiquitous AR, things like facial recognition (an area that machines already outperform us on) will fall by the wayside. Leave the meat to do what it does best - creative problem solving, emotional intelligence, artistic shit. Ditch the stuff we're useless at - counting, memory, data analysis. We're already most of the way there. The stuff our current machines are doing are light years in advance of our capabilities but there's still this mechanical interface that prevents us outsourcing the last vestiges. Checking your change at the counter. Knowing what day it is. That'll pass.

We're becoming vastly more intelligent but it's an aggregate gain - us plus our technology.

I'm confused, I though all Cow Ass posts basically come out to "I saw God and shat myself"?

Has something changed I'm not aware of?  :?

Not that the story itself wasn't great (which it was) but the asterisk was the icing on the cake!  :lulz:

That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even death may die.

Whoah, he quotes Cliff Burton and everything!  :eek:

I'm not getting how he can walk in that rig.  Something's not adding up right in my head.

He's sliding. Like moowalking with the rig holding him in place. Gotta admit I prefer the idea of a hamsterball but those are waaaay fkin pricey. Could see me settling for something like this until they can jack my cerebellum.

Yeah, funny the things people fixate on. I'm kinda siding with you on the which part was relevent issue :) I've had a play with Google cardboard on my Nexus5 and, given that what I experienced was the result of a 1 year old smartphone and some cardboard, I can confidently say that VR is going to change the fucking world.

Speaking of cool gamer related stuff, have you seen No Man's Sky?

Heh, yeah. The presenter guy came across a part man / part douche. Maybe related?

I couldn't find a chrome mod like adblock to block youtube comments so I installed one in my head. I'm honestly incapable of seeing them now. :lulz:

Well, that's not so bad then, is it?

If you want, I can put in the Skyrim thread links to a bunch of low-peformance impacting but really useful mods?

Have you seen the VorpX app running Skyrim on Oculus?.


Weights for me started as a physical challenge but very quickly became predominantly a head-game. I think that's normal
