Mass Effect. Liked this game and universe.
Infinity isn't just one value. There are infinite different infinities. You could have a distribution that has infinite more mass below, or infinite more mass above, or even a finite mass difference. infinity-infinity is undefined, not 0.I'd choose the Library of Babel.
Admittedly, the first big problem with this universe is gravity. If the library is infinite, then the distribution of mass is uniform, and there's just as much mass pulling you "up" as there is pulling you "down". In fact, there should be no up or down.
True enough! Absolute equality, like absolute freedom, is absolutely unattainable. However, material well-being would still be good. I'm a member of this era's underclass, but I still have a better life than William the Conqueror.Just because there is no "money" does not mean there is no "currency"
and that will always create an underclass.
I like star trek, too. No, holodeck is not everything Greg. It's the culture, where human (and Star Federation) is much more refined than us.I asked this question to Doc Al in his interview, but I think it would be fun to hear from everyone. You can pick any well known SciFi universe to live in. Which would it be?
I would say Star Trek just for the holodeck and the device where food is instantly made. Seems fairly stable too.
One of the things I think our space-faring future would be about is architecture. We would have to build the ships to get to these places in the first place, we could then build habitats to live in once we get there. We could custom design O'neil or McKendree cylinders for whatever environment we'd find, and they would always be in the best spot for us in the habitable zone. It could be that after living in ships for hundreds or thousands of years the idea of living on a planet again could be really icky!I wouldn't live in a new sci-fi universe like AVATAR among others because they assume that all habitable worlds will have sentient life. This gives the feeling that we have no place to go. That's a miserable outlook and I think many sci-fi's have succumbed to this idea. I don't find that realistic. Even on this world legend has it that god put sentience here and it is not natural. I'd want to live in a universe where we have a place to go.
If you are talking about the last one SciFi did you seem more alarmed by the prospect than the creators were; they seemed far more interested in the Cylons than the human beings. There is an attitude I call Ethical Misanthropy that I see as very much an intellectual fashion statement today. The last Battlestar Galactica very much displayed this attitude.#Battlestar_Galactica
Universe ruled by Cylons!!
The last episode was happy ending episode.If you are talking about the last one SciFi did you seem more alarmed by the prospect than the creators were; they seemed far more interested in the Cylons than the human beings.
