Whenever I put new batteries into my alarm clock, it tells me that the day's just begun on January 1st, 2000. When I start up my XBox after a long time of being unplugged, it thinks it's 11/14/01. Automatically, one tries to empathize with these machines. What must it feel like to suddenly pop into the world four years behind schedule, having lived previous lives of which you were completely unaware. And the further back in time the date, the more one has to think "Wow, has it really been this long? What all have I missed?"

After pursuing that train of thought for a few seconds, another question springs forth into your frontal lobe - "When will such thoughts first come from a machine?"

It won't be long. I have a machine that already gives those sort of thoughts.

This line of thinking proves that Mota Boy > JohnnyNemesis. I've thought of that, but never expressed it that way.

The structure of the human brain is far more complex than a machine will ever be. We create machines, but have not yet unraveled our unconscious, therefore are unable to make machines behave like ourselves or think like us. They can possibly think basically, but to ponder hypothetical questions... i doubt it.

That's just not correct. In the future you have no idea how technolgy will evolve. This thing has been debated a million times. It's gay now.

But by then, how will our brains have evolved? I know technology evolves faster than biological entities, but we are still evolving, albeit slowly. To cope with a huge influx of technological knowlegde we are evolving new capacities which machines won't be able to match.

When the first mechanical/technological brain evolves teh progress of the mechanical or machine revoultion will increase at an ever exponential rate. It will out live us all and dominate the universe. You see becuase once it knows how to learn and build things nothing can stop it improving itself. Than that version will improve itself. And it will go on at an exp. rate. This possibilty has been explored a billion times and I no longer wish to discuss it.

Still don't agree, but i'll let you off.

How can you not agree? It's logic.

We've taken like a zillion years to evolve to what we are. Machines can compress that time down to a couple billion CPU cycles and then improve on that and improve on that. There's nothing to argue against. It's fact.

I missed these threads.

Omg, XBox? Don't just Paptown kids use it?

I've never thought that, machines are just the slaves of real human beings and nobody cares what they think. They're kinda like slavics in that respect.

Shut up and bend over, you dumb slavic. Nobody wants to hear a word you people have to say unless it's muffled with their cock.

... or with potatoes, for that matter. Is the West trying to pwn the East again?

The East pwnt itself centuries ago when it let all those damned jews in without persecuting them.
