The universe does not want to exist. The second law of thermodynamics makes this abundantly clear. The trend is to absolute zero and nothing but the highest entropy states in all directions. All information will be destroyed. We can watch black holes do this.. a creepy little reminder that the very fabric of our universe hides something dark and cold and bleakly two dimensional behind it.
At some point in the very distant future, a collection of random vibrations possibly originating from our own existence will randomly coalesce in a single point in space time and through constructive interference cause a particle to be created from the void. The fields will rebound. An anti particle will be created. Normally they would collide and annihilate. This pair wont. They will escape each others light cones. This will push the universe into negative entropy, which is the big bang, and two new pockets of low entropy will temporarily form.
And disappear after a few hundred billion years. Maybe someone inside there will have the same thought.
I don't want to save the planet. There is absolutely nothing in my biology or genetics that would make me want to do that. Survival of the fittest. If you can't make it, I'm not going to build a bridge so your weak ass can continue to exist where you shouldn't.
I have zero desire to play God.
may put Earth into a permanent Classical period from which there is no escape.
Human adaptation and tolerance of different levels of background risk make this less likely. Nuclear power is always available. Coal is always available, and was readily used as a fuel source pre-industry... coke, likewise, always available. Before "fossil fuels" we used "whale oil." Modern solar cells are efficient and well packaged and designed to fit into an existing voltage standard based on multi-cell lead acid battery levels, but nothing about that is required to actually use solar power.
We've only had oil for 150 years. We got really far without it.
It's like castrating the planet so that it can't go back to outer space.
The space shuttle main engines burned pure Hydrogen and Oxygen. Solar Cell + Water == Hydrogen + Oxygen. Thankfully the earth is mostly water.
Clearly these are the edicts of the galactic federation who deemed humanity unfit to colonize other stars.
Or we just have a few lessons to learn and realize that our "limited resource based" economy was the most retarded thing a species could engage in.
Your analogy entirely ignores gains in efficiency. The game is not to make it last forever, it's to get the most useful returns on it while building the next mass energy storage and transport technology.. whatever that happens to be.
This is a Tsiolkovsky rocket equation problem, not a human calorie problem.
There's nothing that special about them. There are also the "ops" they completely "fuck up." Here's one:
Playing into our hands?! hahaha, what preposterous bullshit.
Yea, we arranged the lab leak, and a bad vaccine, and a disastrous booster campaign ALL to make YOU look silly.
I keep thinking we've seen "peak retardation" but holy shit, Europe just keeps delivering.
You're assuming they achieved their positions in society due to competence. They're where they are because they're good at lying, cheating, and covering crimes up. That's all.
Their motivation? To not get caught and lose everything they've "built."
You're literally watching an entire upper-class of society reveal the sandy foundations of their castles.
Any time someone tells you they want the FBI to investigate anything other than fraud, or thing that there are bigger problems than fraud.. they're committing fraud, or covering for friends who make a lot of money doing so.
