What is your "impossible dream"?
Mine is to rule the world anonymously.
>have everything and everyone I want literally whenever I want
>no fear of being assassinated because no one knows
I want to be a semi successful writer
>too lazy to write anything but short poems
>barely manage to squeeze out 1 or 2 a week
Having this vague dream is slightly better than constantly feeling suicidal
To be an inquisitor so I can impose morality on normies.
Mine is to someday achieve a comfy, responsibility-free life where I have the freedom to do as much 4chan and vidya as I please, yet not be NEET and have a steady flow of cash.
In other words, achieve /r9k/ nirvana.
My dream is that no man or woman will rule over another man or woman. And no man or woman would exploit another man's or woman's labor for profit.
Anything I want can be made from material using labor given by the machines. I want to make such machines so the labor of other people would not be used in items and goods that I use.
Of course this is end goal. The immediate solution is to divide labor among people like pizza is divided. In equal slices. Limiting factor is time. Work hour is always work hour.
No wages. No profits. All labor is directly related to the laborer and by the use of labor division, everyone. No one getting rich off another person's labor.
People should be able to get rich though. I don't want to work for the rest of my life or until I'm dead, and neither do I want to make average wage for doing a job that requires a lot of training and such. It kinda sounds like a system for people who want to do average work and yet not feel like they're less than ambitious people.
To live in form of an uploaded mind in a world where everything I wish is possible and I cannot die. Other minds in this world would be nice too. But someday, the computer would eventually stop anyways.
Building a database to include the sum of all humanity's knowledge. Starting with the knowledge required to run a society up to the levels of building computers.
Basically a "how to" for civilization in the event of a civilization destroying catastrophe. And the secret society that springs up around it to defend the knowledge they so ardently sought
I've already put a bit of thought into it, the main archive would be stored separately and securely (no connection to any other computers ever) and the data and knowledge that should be in it is to be vetted and put in by members of the society. Though the society isn't about just hoarding knowledge. That knowledge which we consider beneficial to humanity would be released, free to peruse and use to your own ends. While always keeping in mind our position as guardians of humanity's past and future.
Of course the society will use the banquet of knowledge at its disposal, and the expertise of the members themselves to accomplish its own ends
Yes but not at the expense of others.
You know you have certain needs and desires. All that are material ones can be fulfilled using labor and material.
My training is to become a scientist specializing in physics. I already have a part time employment as scientist while being a student. It requires a lot of training, education, but honestly I enjoy it so much that I don't give a damn about money as long as I have a roof over my head, food that I can eat so I do not starve to death and then money for sports equipment and for paying for swimming pool or gym. And hobbies. All that is attainable with below average wage.
What is the issue here is alienation of people and the labor itself, and also products of this labor. When people do work that they feel is not important, of course they are demotivated and frustrated.
And the issue of this board is alienation of people from society.
I wish more people reached similar conclusion. Since it is logically consistent and it rejects the outright selfishness.
Every single human being is capable of much more than to be like a locust.
Why can't people see that when they are liberated from their material constraints, they are free to express their individualism. And then only true ability will show, unimpeded by lack of funds, money, material, energy.
See the picture for explanation.
The end result of it sounds like anything but monotony and lack of excitement.
yeah, but you'll have to watch other people take credit for everything you work hard to accomplish
I'd much rather rule openly, be remembered in history as the guy who ordered the construction of railroads around the world.
Nah, I don't really care about credit. All I want is enough power to have everything, without the risk of pissing people off. As for the "hard work", I would probably only make major decisions like what to do with seawater or which country will own the moon. I don't actually want to rule the world 24/7, I just want to write shitty games/programs and learn mechanical engineering for fun.
That sounds good but didn't you say:
>The immediate solution is to divide labor among people like pizza is divided.
Doesn't that mean people still have to work? And how much will they have to work? Doesn't that constitute "making a living"?
Anyway, I've always liked the idea of going back to the basics. I envy the simplicity of cavemen where they literally just have to go out and hunt for an hour or two (which is pretty exciting) and then just socialize with their tribe for the rest of the day or whatever. I know it's not that simple but it sounds much less frustrating than this society that is fueled by stress.
Well, I don't know the details but if it diminishes my level of stress, I'd like to see it in action.
Yes but their making a living is much more direct and optimized. When you take in account that most of the office jobs today are bullshit jobs that can be either abolished, or automated if they are not bullshit jobs.
So if the office drones then go to work in agriculture, all the work is divided among more people, resulting in that every person will do less work.
Going back to basics is unnecessary. The only argument for it is that most natural resources are under private ownership. And private ownership is made to be a sacred cow, untouchable.
Compare it with personal ownership, which is stuff you own. Private property is what you own and have other people use it to give you profit. Personal property is what you use for yourself.
Would you say it is fair that every person has a right to 1/(number of people) fraction of all available natural resources?
Or should those resources be owned by selected few.
Take over the world through facism and put all resources into spreading into space, that and to keep me alive and young for as long as i can.
Expel the non-whites and Muslims from Britain, Anschluss Ireland and return it to the Union, centralize the commonwealth and pressure at the very least the anglosphere countries into accepting annexation, preferably many of the Carribean/African/Asian commonwealth nations too.
Then I'd reform the United Kingdom Space Agency as the Imperial Space Agency, set 5% of GDP to fund it and establish bases on the Moon and Mars, intended to work towards human colonization.
To live and quest in a mythical land with far eastern themes. Not really so out there imo, I think full immersion vr will be for the common man by 2040. Just need to live until 45, and maintain my health and vigor.
>Would you say it is fair that every person has a right to 1/(number of people) fraction of all available natural resources?
Yeah, especially in an increasingly globalising and automated world. We're gonna have self driving cars soon, do you know how many jobs that's gonna kill?
Imo capitalism is the seed of communism. Like Marx said capitalism drives automation(less labor cost to maximize profit) but at the cost of the labor force not having employment.
Automation and employment WILL come to a point where everyone has univeral base income because there is just too many people and robots have taken all but the most interpersonal jobs.
At that point we'll be like the people from Wall-E. I only real job is to consume until death.
Since you already took that spot ITT, can I be your Venom ? I too want to go to a different kind of heaven.
>to be born in 1896
>somewhere in England, Germany, or Ireland
>If England, then London or Liverpool, industrial type
>Ireland id like to be born in the rural areas
>if Germany i dont care, were united for the Fatherland
>picked date due to an astronomical alignment iv discovered revealing that if i were born in 1896, then i would be 18 in 1914, just in time to join the call to arms, more men!
>would enlist immediately
>iv chosen to be a loner in my life, i wont be going along with any school pals
>live out the war just because, the great war is sweet
>in this life i have astonishing luck, do not die or suffer threatening injuries
thats it really, guess im really into world war one
i think 15 or 16 was the youngest you could, but why the fuck would i want to do that. some little ass kid in the trenches. 18 is the prime age for fighting. that primal urge to hunt which Thoreau describes as our main reason to kill has reached its peak. so yeah 18 is the best age
To have a cat that doesn't wake me up at 3am every FUCKING DAY!!
Man... I just wanna be omnipotent, with no strings attached. You could do whatever you wanted with nobody to stop you, although I wouldn't even be some Chaotic Evil dude who causes the apocalypse or whatever. I'd just try to fix up the world (for example, getting rid of pollution and global warming, etc.) then just cruise around the universe on a small planet-like domain with my friends and my custom-made, completely loyal, waifu.
I really don't know why people don't immediately go for omnipotence in scenarios like this.
I would like to stay immortal as long as I will my body to not age. Basically, total mental power over my body, enableing me to not eat, not drink, not age, not sleep until I would will my body to "release" and I'd instantly die of age/hunger/thrist/exertion.
I'd be a nameless wanderer, just observeing and seeing the world on food. Since I'd be a few hundred years old, everytime I'd show up I'd try to help someone with a piece of advice.
But I'd probably be taken captive by some military force and experimented on.
Like the other dude said, it would be boring. That's why I (OP) said to rule the world. At least there's the excitement of still being a regular human being who can be surprised, rather that being so powerful that everything is monotonous. And I don't think you can just convince yourself that things aren't boring or w/e, unless you inject drugs into your system 24/7.
I want to create a new world order based on humanity rejecting it's nature, fully embracing self controlled evolution and abolish all our animalistic tendencies.
I must sound like an autist, but I truly believe that this is the next step for us.
OK, but you should at least choose Ultipotence, don't you think?
You are a omnipotent being in an adventure to discover how to use your limitless power, that would be much cooler, don't you think?
I'd just keep balance and watch. And real balance not this level. Kinda like the first world the machines made for the humans in the Matrix but then again you'd probably go through the same problem they did.
(first world was too "perfect" so machines had to actually make the world shittier because most humans can't live without stress)
That would be really hard to do
Just imagine waking up (or whatever omnipotent beings do) and thinking "fuck this shit" and the whole universe ends
Intrusive thoughts would be pretty dangerous kek
$6,425,000 and I'd be happy and set for life.
When Saitama fought Lord Boros, even though he was holding back, it still took him several punches. And t.b.h. Lord Boros didn't even seem as strong as the weakest villain in dbz so I wouldn't be so confident.
I probably like One-Punch Man better than dbz so there's that
No it didn't
He used ONE exact serious punch, it completely pierced through a >>25877519
dbz based energy attack that was going to destroy the earth, and the SHOCKWAVE completely killed Boros
Man, that's exactly why I said "IF HE HAS INFINITE STRENGTH"
I don't really know how this is deniable?
If he has infinite strength he can punch through a fucking black hole
do you know what the fuck infinite means?
Well he punched a couple of times, maybe I misinterpreted his non-serious punches as serious ones. I believe after the battle he fights another enemy and the enemy dies in one punch, and Saitama exclaims something like: "Oh no, back to one punch!" as if he previously needed multiple punches and only now reverted back to the one punch. I don't know, that's just what I saw.
Chill bro, my comment was questioning the infinite strength part (i.e. the fact that it might've taken some minuscule effort to beat Boros).
