Science fiction? or future's mankind way to survive.

category: general [glöplog]
I've recently moved myself to vegetarianism, or at least having a bad feeling about the means used by humans to harvest meat, fish, and soo called regular food.
Wondering about the deadlines of human performance in earth,...2100, 2050,... some documentary, then I came with a silly idea: The StarTrek replication machines. Sounds stupid and childish as hell,...but hey! think about UFO reasearch, Moon Bases, Football contracts €€€€, or Breakpoint prizes ( ;D muahaha )

By the way, I'm wondering about, if the LHC at CERN
will allow scientists research on atomic structures replication? Is any research group messing around with this device basis?

A more immediate application of Star Trek technology:

I just want a holodeck..

Switching from normal food to vegetarian food is like switching from vodka-o to vodka.

Vegan people wouldn't eat the child of a chicken, even if it's still unborn.
Yes, also the vegans will have their own doomsday...did you see The Incident film?

About he topic, yes,yes,...I know it's and stupid idea, a dumb one that deserves a triple facepalm,...anyway, I'm just curious about that stuff. Okay, is not like a microwave owen,...that's shaking some atoms and so on stuf.
The food replication shit, sounds like using arbitrary atoms(air,rocks, inside the device, to recombine them according a previously scanned structure.

So,...We have that scanner Scotty?

Move back to meat.
Just a suggestion.

What about having a balanced meal eating a little bit of everything?

(lol, j/k, we should! Eat endangered animals every day! woop woop!)

First off, replicator technology belongs to The Next Generation, so asking Scotty won't help a bit.
Second: there's lot of [useless] information on that [inexistent and whacked-off] subject in the always helpful [but progressively spilling more and more shit out] wikipedia.
And third and most important: what the fucking fuck is wrong with you, man?

goddamn SPiTe! Come here If you dare, and I'll show you what the funcking fuck is wrong with ...what the fart?¿

well,...I'm soooooooooo bored, my new job let's me tons of spare time at afternoon. Team Fortress 2 and Carmack's .plan reading does _NOT_ work.

GOing on-topic: Dissapointing, thought LHC technology and efforts was in part to research stuff like that.

What's so cool about Team Fortress 2? I installed it the other day and I lasted 10min. Probably because I'm bad, but it wasn't really anything new... :?

Neither I found "The Dig" as good as everyone said it was (I'm playing all the games I haven't played for the las 20 years...).

Next on the list is Full Throttle, then ICO, then Shadow of the Colossus...

I smoke only produce from non-meat species... does that make me a veggiesaurus?

Anyway the chocolate probably contains only the milk from non-endangered cows.

I've been around the Internet (tm), so I've seen more stupid threads, that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy this'un tho :D

Hah. :)

OK, here's one point I agree with that could help keep the thread alive: yes, we need a moon base more than we need millionaire football players!! Let's make them all come together and donate toward this worthy cause :) As if.

Forget about meteors, pandemics, aliens.. This is unfortunately our future.

i have a problem with the machines used to harvest oat, wheat, rye and colza (danish: raps). those machine take up way to much space on the roads. in addition, i also have a problem with people driving saabs wearing hats :-)
... and one of the worst movies, ever.

As you can read in wikipedia, replicators would require so many calculations, that such computer is not remotely possible in the near future. Of course, the first prototype would take a month to replicate like one sausage. But is it possible? Well, why not?
trace: try dreamweb

FoodReplicator HAHAHAH

well I'm going in here

Atomic spectroscopy and mass spectrometry are important tools for identifying and quantifying trace elements in food products

Scientists learned how to measure mass, what about scanning and then spatially re-constructing it? Sounds silly, ...but could help on saving earth resources, or supply a distant colony.

This thread is now about Dune.

I've gotten to "God Emperor of Dune".

Replicators work on the same principle as transporters. Therefore the key technology that needs to be developed first are the Heisenberg compensators.

Anyway, I am with Okkie on that one. The only Star Trek technology I really want is the Holodeck. However solid photons are too much of a suspension of disbelief, even for me.

chrisTOS: Thanks for the friendly Trekkie point of view approach in your reply :P
