If you could have any life what would it be? I want to know how my fellow /sci/entists would like to live and study. Personally I'd like to live on a large spacecraft with an AI companion, huge and well equipped labs and a library. I'd travel among space marveling at the universe and while traveling between locations, research build cool shit.
>Giving a completely unrealistic and impossible life
I don't think that's healthy, buddy. Anyways...
I would like to live in a solo apartment or maybe a small house where I'd live alone. The design of everything, from walls to furniture, would be monochrome. Just black and white to please the eye. Furthermore, every wall will have on it a whiteboard with markers lying around somewhere close so that I can proof theorems and do computations whenever I feel like it, all around.
I would program a mechanism, ideally with an arduino, that would cover up all the whiteboards like they were windows, with the press of a button. This of course for when I bring slutty social science majors to fuck and I don't want them to be weirded out or anything by the equations on my walls.
I like the whiteboard walls. I've wanted to do that for a while but with glass.
I'd want to live in a little hut in the mountains, by a pond or a small lake.
Nobody nearby except for a hamlet where I can buy some basic food and get my mail delivered.
Enough money to mail-order all the texts I want to read.
get a space ship which self-repairs and is run by a custodian AI equipped with
>a zero-loss universal molecular fabricator and recycler
>a perpetual fusion reactor, just add water for the hydrogen!
>a stasis machine which can put some object or person into perfect hibernation, little to no energy use and no degradation over time
>a simulator as part of that hibernation module, so the occupant can live virtually in their own simulated world while suspended
pick the first star to the left and straight on 'till however many mornings it takes to get there.
spend my life just exploring the stars, going into hibernation for the very, very long trips in between them. Possibly build stuff on the various planets i visit like data caches that can last billions of years on planets which i think might eventually harbor alien life.
it just sounds fun and fulfilling, and might even do some good by giving newly intelligent species a bit of a leg-up. it'd even be fun to eventually meet a species i indirectly uplifted
