    The universe is infinite. I don't think even the smartest mind on the planet can possibly imagine the depth of what is infinite.

    Think about every star, every solar system, every single cluster of galaxies and the space between them. I believe even that mass comes to an end, and space just carries on.

    Its easy to imagine something having its limit, we humans create limitations in our mind for a reason. But is it so easy to imagine what goes beyond that and never ends?

    What if we can reverse aging? What if we figure out a way to harness enough energy to make warp drive possible? I think it already may be possible to extend ones life by hundreds of years if gene therapy becomes a practical reality.

    Mmm, a full nuclear holocaust wouldn't exterminate the human race. It'd be a serious setback though.

    No seriously. So what? I don't think that dude was saying "nobody cares." It seems like you are trying hard to sound philosophical, but just fail.

    just think of it like this.
    We are like an ant colony in one country.
    Do you think the ants in brazil are going to ever meet the ants in asia?
    Do you think they even know each other exists?

    It is very possible to travel any part of the universe even if its accelerating. Worm Holes. and with new information coming from the hadron collider, the universe will possibly recycle itself in a few billion years. I would like to see the big crush theory have its return

    We don't look back at early man and criticize them for not reaching space, we are impressed and thankful that they even managed to invent fire. We don't look back on the last 100 years and think they weren't productive because they never got to another planet, we are just thankful that they discovered efficient modes of transportation and made improvements in science and medicine.

    Why would future generations look back at what we do today and only evaluate us based on our inability to do something (get out of our solar system) beyond our level of technology?

It wont take long until this technology can create a bubble large enough to cover a large vehicle, and I'm sure by that time we have already created a ship intended for space exploration.
    Wait what?

    Really?

    Source please, because this sounds too good to be true.

    Pssh such was said about crossing Oceans, about flying, about breaking out of Earth's Orbit, about Landing on the Moon, about Landing on Mars... space exploration is coming, humanity has a manifest destiny off this rock; haters be damned.

    He thought he just discovered something immense, realized how much of a genius he is and after sharing da hard truth and not getting god-like praise in the very first post, he couldn't react properly.

    Nah.

    Graham's number hurts my brain just thinking about it. A number so big that it would literally collapse my brain into a black hole if I knew every digit it contained? Ouch.

    you have something on the nanobots but i think its safe to say that a "Supervirus" wont kill us, someone will be immune to it and from that we can make a vacine not to mention whatever lab it came from will probably have some way to deal with it
    You're a fine example of how gamer communities have become infested with endlessly whining and bitching, arrogant, opinionated, unreasonable, all the way immature, completely delusional, tendentially psychotic, insulting individuals one really doesn't want to be linked with. And playing with you guys is certainly no fun at all. I don't know where this kind of folks spawns from. Must be a nest somewhere ...
    A fine summarization of the community

    That's my response too.
    The reason i reply is i find the thread useless.
    Every thinking person he thought before they turned 10, so it's not really deep or interresting.
    It's a bit like making a thread saying 2+2 = 4 ;/

    I take it's because you want a meaning in our life etc.
    For some of us it's just about living and be happy about that, instead of thinking we're made with a purpose
    Everyone has so much to say
    They talk talk talk their lives away

    With advances in medical technology, our life expectation is going up. And we're beginning to understand telomeres and their role in the aging process. It won't be too long before we can slow down, or even stop, aging. In the meanwhile, living comfortably past 100 years is coming around the corner for anyone with access to healthcare.

    This has got to be the most useless thread I have ever seen on this forum, and that's saying something.
