Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

If there are no planets build Dyson swarms. Why are they still even using planets in the first place? Artificial habitats are safer and can house trillions around a single star. A Dyson swarm won't be able to hold atmosphere on its own. Having to construct so much pressurized free floating habitats...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Edit a week later: It's a big galaxy. How can they already be running out of planets? The galaxy has shitloads of planets. But planets that you call "class M" are comparably sparse. If you are not the only faction in the galaxy, you have additional constraints, they need to be in closer proximity t...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

The best way to make everyone happy is to allow its own civilisation to spread at the cost of other competing civilisations - aka give every citizen a challenging, fruitful and fulfilling job in conquering the observable universe. That might work well if the universe is infinitely sized but in a li...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

This AI was named wisdom , and it was tasked with ensuring the security and stability of the Collective for all time. ...By rewriting every individuals brain... and here I thought just "ruling" a society was a risky thing. There could have been checks and balances. But if the AI can rewire everyone...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

yeah, but that rogue AI in quantumvibe totally optimized for the wrong goal - leading to slow stagnation and decline of the colony. There's more extreme thought-cases of that. An AI that would optimize to never let any human do anything wrong might simply not let them do anything at all. Or even wor...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

The problem with democracy in general and direct democracy in particular is that, while everyone is entitled to an oppinion and the right to vote, not everyone is capable of forming qualified oppinion. On the contrary, experts with the knowledge and insight to form a qualified oppinion often are a m...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

You forgot "half keying" the mic, so cause an intermittent/unclean trigfer resulting in an equally noisy intermittent carrier and a lot of ugly noise/scratching/crackling from the receiver. Downside to that technique is, it really doesn't work anymore with digital transmission. Or would easily be de...

"Copied a good portion of her neural block unto a quarantained partition" O...K... wait a minute, did Whisper just make a dump of that girls brain just as she died?

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Behemots are slow to turn... I guess they really didn't expect any real company, or it would come with some lighter escort I suppose? I think its less a matter of expecting company and more a matter of having time to prepare. That behemoth only jumped in after the lockdown was triggered, to retriev...
