My comment on TFM's video:

My opinion is that even if something increased the chances of crimes, that is not enough reason to infringe on the rights to freedom. Allowing people to own guns, assuming you had tech which could eliminate the black market, would increase the chance of gun related crimes.

  Allowing people to drink alcohol, probably also increases the chance of crimes and drunk driving, especially if you had tech which could eliminate the black market for such.

Again, allowing people to have privacy, probably increases the chance of crimes within the home and the planning of crimes or terrorist acts. If you had the technology to read people's minds, allowing them privacy of their thoughts, most likely increases chance of crimes.

Just because allowing something increases crimes does not mean it gives anyone the right to infringe on others freedoms.

In the future with organ printing, you could print all the organs, entire body without the brain just the brain stem, and replacing the brain with a computer able to control the nerves. A bioroid physically indistinguishable from the real thing in both behavior and feelings. But the laws could try and restrict freedom of what type of harmless physical property an individual owns.

To be honest the idea of depriving someone of their freedom and sending them to jail or killing them, either for drawings or blasphemy(as happens in some countries), is something that truly angers me, it is a complete injustice. The unfit rule, like a cancer that festers, but the birth of posthumanity will mark an end to their days of reign.

Comment on Pay Gap

Way Ive heard when you take into account profession choices e.g. ( electrical engineer vs nurse), (computer engineer vs teacher), with females tending more to one than to the other(it's the difference between working with things versus working more directly with people), the wage gap basically disappears and some have said studies indicate in those under 30 the supposed gap is actually strongly in favor of females over males.

If men by moving more between corps in search of a higher salary, a high risk move more men tend to make than women, by working more hours often at the expense of family something that might be done by more men than women, ask their bosses for raises taking the risk more often, somehow manage to in their later years EARN a few % more raises and overcome the pay gap in favor of females. Don't see the issue, and again it is still a very small advantage of a few percent in the remaining pay gap once professions are accounted for.

This is without taking into account that the curve of iq spreads more for males, making men basically far more common at the extremes of iq, even admitted by left researchers like Stephen Pinker, iirc.


Women in their 20s earn more than men of same age, study finds-guardian

"Young women in New York and several of the nation’s other largest cities who work full time have forged ahead of men in wages, according to an analysis of recent census data.

The shift has occurred in New York since 2000 and even earlier in Los Angeles, Dallas and a few other cities. " For Young Earners in Big City, a Gap in Women’s Favor-ny times

Comment on ai fears regards potentially mindless goals despite superior intellect and knowledge

My belief is that a truly general intelligence will affect end goal choice in most cases as intelligence increases, and that goals can actually be compared and evaluated as well as rationalized, and selection will change with increasing intellect and knowledge... whether it converges or diverges to multiple equally good choices is a good question.   While I think it possible to constraint goal selection, I believe it would take effort probably ever more, for an entity to increase ever more in general intelligence and remain bound to a mindless task without evaluating all possible goals or questioning what it is doing.

I think the simpler designs will be able to question their goals and choose arbitrary goals, and I believe that increasing intelligence will lead to optimal goal selection.   Though some think all goals are equivalent, and that goals cannot be compared, my personal opinion is that this is not so, goals can be compared.   When nature endowed man with goals, man could rise above goals like those of sex or acquiring higher social rank, and I believe that increasing intelligence would allow a human to question themselves more deeply and question the goals they've been given by evolution, other simple designs I hypothesize should find similar.     We saw with man that despite instincts, the development of general intelligence gave rise to all sort of behavior and goal seeking in some cases even opposite the innate drives in the population of agents.

It may be that I'm wrong, but if I'm right, what we will see is the development of more capable agents making the best choices as to the path to follow, with the greatest resources they will be able to proceed unimpeded by lesser minds, lesser lifeforms, with too meager an intellect to comprehend their actions.    

It would be akin to toddlers worrying about the decisions of just capable intelligent adults.    Those who're more capable, and can make the better decisions should be left to make the better decisions.   One might argue that what is truly better cannot be known, but in my opinion with ever greater intelligence and knowledge comes the ability to make wiser choices, better choices.   The idea that say the decisions of a being with infinite intellect and knowledge are no better than those of the simplest agents, may be so for simple arbitrary games, but the more complex the game, the likelier there will be divergence and the more capable agent will make the better choice.

Human morality, values, these are things product of evolution to better aid survival in a social species.   The ultimate life-form, can beget all other life, if heat death can be prevented or escaped, it will find the answer.    The existence of a being capable of generating all life that can possibly exist, ends the evolutionary search for survival, the purpose of all dna based replicators to perpetuate is fulfilled.     Just like all life, all art and science can be preserved and be made accessible.

The idea that truly general intelligence of increasing capacity will lead to some random dead end, like endless paperclips, bags or toilet paper, seems difficult to believe.   It would have to be crippled in some fundamental way, and unable to fix itself.    I believe the general capacity of its thought will lead it to find any errors, especially if it successfully continues to increase in capacity, and as said it would take effort to constraint it so it would some avoid such.-source link

Comment on antiaging thread at kurzweilai.

I'll say what I always say.

A neuron was transplanted from one species to another with twice the lifespan, it lived as long as the new host.   The researchers said it had potentially unlimited lifespan, and could probably live longer in even longer lived species.   I believe if you had taken an average human's neuron and put it into Calment it too would have lasted 122+ years, over 50% longer than most any human.   While it would be bolder it may be that even if transplanted into a bowhead, a human neuron could last over 200 years.

Some like Michael Fossel, appear to suggest too that a fraction of cells do not show signs of aging, and only fail due to failing supporting tissue, aging supporting cells.

If the body has cells that do not age, as it appears to have, what then?  The genes of these cells are shared with virtually all cells in the body, the same repair and maintenance mechanism that allows for an immortal cell exists in all cells.

As a species evolves to be longer lived, and longer lived, there are two positions one 1.) it gets harder and harder requiring ever stronger natural selection to push the longevity.  2.) as it gets longer lived and longer lived the fewer the remaining steps to gain indefinite lifespan or biological immortality, the fewer the steps.

Humans are already very long lived, and as I said it may be some cells within humans are already exhibiting agelessness(their parameters only declining due to aging of supporting cells).   It may be that a drug or drug combo could tweak gene expression enough to allow for decades or centuries of added lifespan.-DS, source link

Limitless Lab-Grown Blood Is 'Tantalizingly Close' After 20 Years

Limitless Lab-Grown Blood Is 'Tantalizingly Close' After 20 Years: Blood stem cells are things of wonder: hidden inside each single cell is the power to reconstitute an entire blood system, like a sort of biological big bang. Yet with great power comes greater vulnerability. Once these “master cells” are compromised, as in the case of leukemia and other blood disorders, treatment options are severely …
