So I was surfing wikipedia and got onto space exploration...

    So if we decided to settle space, what would be one attribute you would want see in extraterrestrial human civilizations. BESIDES the obvious. I would like to see selective reproduction of people with common sense. LOL JK

    I'd like to see horny gay clones of Hugh Jackman, Shemar Moore, and Jake Gyllenhaal walking around naked all the time.

    Is that first one really Hugh Jackman? It doesn't look like him at all.

    I would like to see an all male immortal species that never ages

    Geez. I know you are joking, but don't you have any female friends? That's pretty harsh.

    The next door twin planet has the female version of that species. They visit often to help the crossdressers do their hair and nails, and cook dinner.

    Haha. I love looking through wikipedia at random topics. One of the most interesting I've found is of Jack the Ripper... Kinda creepy but kinda cool icon_razz.gif

    If we were doing extraterrestrial colonies.. I would want to see a system of pure, sustainability, not just in energy generation and use, but in food regeneration, water purification, etc.. icon_cool.gif I'm taking an organic chemistry class, which I am really enjoying.. It would be cool if, by a series of reactions, we learned how to get rid of waste and convert it into useful organic matter, like dirt. This may be only achieved in an extraterrestrial environment where the conditions of reactions are different (different reactant components, different atmospheric pressures, temperatures that are otherwise unattainable, different spectra of light...). I think it would also be cool if we worked on looking for new, undiscovered elements or ones that cannot be produced in Earth's nature....

    My chemistry teacher in high school suggested that there's a possibility of some galaxies and systems in outer space running on a silicone-based environment, rather than a carbon-based one. The idea of that is just COOL to me, and developing a way to survive and thrive in such a system would be the shit.

    Also, wouldn't it be cool to colonize one of the outer gaseous planets? Like have a floating space colony in Uranus's outer cloud or even in its ocean. What if there were animals!?!

    That's another thing that'd be cool.. forming an extraterrestrial animal discovery team icon_biggrin.gif

    I think, as long as we're talking kinda sci-fi, that the human condition would be greatly improved if we could actually engineer in (selective) telepathy. Whether it's via some "psychic gene therapy" or nanotechnology permitting wireless networking between brains, I think we'd be much less inclined to do nasty, rotten, horrible things to one another if the other person could respond to you by broadcasting their pain back on you, or by making you see yourself through their eyes. I mean you wouldn't want people able to 'hack' each other's brains and take control of each other, obviously... unless you did... but whereas one of the biggest afflictions on our society today is the decline of empathy, I think that tweak to our experience/senses would be an improvement.

    Plus, bonus, if you could link up with someone you were having sex with and experience their sensations as well as yours, you'd know what you were doing right (and could do more of it) and eventually synchronize your mutual pleasure to maximize it. Or even if you could transmit to someone you'd *like* to be intimate with your feelings for them so they could understand what you see in them and maybe gain some incentive to try and reciprocate. There are all kinds of good possibilities icon_smile.gif

    If memory serves me, Silicone based life forms would not be super-complex due to how silicone bonds.

    As far as I know from taking chemistry classes, silicon is similar to carbon because it is able to bond 4 times (has 4 valence electrons icon_cool.gif ) However, it is by the "metal staircase" and my Mac's periodic table says it's a metalloid.. I don't know what that would mean when trying to apply it as the foundation molecule for a life system... I'm sure that there are several other differences between silicon and carbon that could complicate things, and I'd have to look into its properties to understand what they could be. Still, the idea is pretty cool icon_smile.gif
