Future Imperative

What if technology were being developed that could enhance your mind or body to extraordinary or even superhuman levels -- and some of these tools were already here? Wouldn't you be curious?

Actually, some are here. But human enhancement is an incredibly broad and compartmentalized field. We’re often unaware of what’s right next door. This site reviews resources and ideas from across the field and makes it easy for readers to find exactly the information they're most interested in.

Name:

The future is coming fast, and it's no longer possible to ignore how rapidly the world is changing. As the old order changes -- or more frequently crumbles altogether -- I offer a perspective on how we can transform ourselves in turn... for the better. Nothing on this site is intended as legal, financial or medical advice. Indeed, much of what I discuss amounts to possibilities rather than certainties, in an ever-changing present and an ever-uncertain future.

Poll (Humor): How to Spend $5 Million to Become Superhuman -- Part V -- All but Long, Rev and Super

And so we come to the end of my almost serious poll on "How would you become superhuman if you had a spare $5 million to spend on the project?" Before I toss out this last segment, let me add that I haven't by any means exhausted your potential options. But this five-part list does illustrate the fact that there are tons of methods and technologies out there which most people don't know about. And which could be suprisingly effective in changing some aspect of your abilities or life (particularly if you give credence to anecdotal evidence).

So here's your last set of options. Enjoy. And if you become superhuman in the future, by whatever standard, please let me know.

Acquire or develop cool gadgets like…

...all that spy stuff you can get in the kids section of Wal-Mart (nightvision goggles, eavesdropping microphones, detective’s kits, etc). There are action figures that have their own working nightvision goggles, and if Jake Justice deserves them, why don’t I? =)

…stylish bulletproof clothes. ‘Cause the clothes make the man. Or in this case, keep him from being unmade.
http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/12.07/start.html?pg=5

…floatation tanks, just because you can find the plans here and there online.

The Book of Floating: Exploring the Private Sea by Michael Hutchison


…quantum computers, ‘cause I need some real Ubertech. http://www.betterhumans.com/Resources/Encyclopedia/article.aspx?articleID=2002-05-23-1

…nanotech, ‘cause I need even more Ubertech. http://www.betterhumans.com/Resources/Encyclopedia/article.aspx?articleID=2002-05-08-6http://crnano.org/

Nanosystems: Molecular Machinery, Manufacturing, and Computation by K. Eric Drexler


...nanomedicine, because I deserve to be immortal. Nanomedicine, Vol. I: Basic Capabilities by Robert A. Freitas Jr.


...power armor, ‘cause if it’s good enough for the military, it’s good enough for me. http://www.betterhumans.com/Errors/index.aspx?aspxerrorpath=/Robotic_Legs_Closer_for_US_Soldiers.Article.2004-03-05-2.aspx


Develop "metanormal" abilities (psi, magic, etc) by…

Becoming a cyborg, period (like those Borg on Star Trek!).
http://www.betterhumans.com/Resources/Encyclopedia/article.aspx?articleID=2002-06-12-2

"Uploading" my brain or replacing its neurons with artificial ones. http://www.betterhumans.com/Resources/Encyclopedia/article.aspx?articleID=2002-05-22-3

Becoming a real cyborg – full body replacement, followed by full brain replacement! =) http://www.natasha.cc/primoguide.htm

Join the U.S. military, or the right government agency, and wait for them to turn me into a cyborg... or genetically enhance me... or give me all kinds of supertech... or all that and more...

Yes, according the following report, government researchers think that creating superhumans is not only possible, it’s likely and desirable if we choose to exploit the relevant emerging technologies.
http://www.wtec.org/ConvergingTechnologies/

And even if I don’t get into those experiments, I’ll join the U.S. military anyway, just to become one of their “future warriors.” http://www.fas.org/spp/military/docops/usaf/2025/index.html

Create a friendly artificial intelligence (AI) and hope that it will do something to improve my existence.
http://www.singinst.org/intro/AI.html

Wait for a technological “singularity” to advance science faster than we can imagine. Take advantage of all that unimaginable science.
http://www.singinst.org/what-singularity.html

Freeze my body and especially my brain, hoping that when the above singularity happens, the benevolent higher beings will resurrect me and give me superhuman powers. http://www.betterhumans.com/Resources/Encyclopedia/article.aspx?articleID=2002-05-08-3

Use eugenics or genetic selection to breed my own Master Race – of which I will, incidentally, not be a part…

And if standing around in elaborate robes performing elaborate rituals works for the Ancient Order of the Sacred Moose, then it works for me. Let’s try hermetic magick! http://www.hermetics.org/home.html

Develop/adopt a philosophy/lifestyle that supports my efforts, such as......the Frank Herbert (of “Dune”) concept that people evolve when forced to by immense stress. http://tim.oreilly.com/sci-fi/herbert/ch00.html

...Dr. Win Wenger’s model of self-development through asking better questions... http://www.winwenger.com/part63.htm

...and some further thoughts on the relevance of this kind of work... http://www.winwenger.com/part50.htm

Use whatever seems to work, whether it's on this list or not. (List any particular methods not yet mentioned here.)

Visualization is a tool that has been used for thousands of years by initiates of all the metaphysical schools. Today, it is incorporated into top athlete's daily routines and is used in business affairs frequently. It's use is wide-spread among highly successful people, either consciously or unconsciously, aware of its create power. So if it has stood the test of time and is still being used by high achievers we must come to the conclusion that it works! But has it ever worked for you?

If you answered 'yes' to the above question then you know how powerful this technique can be. If, on the other hand, you gave the more likely answer 'no' then take heart for I am about to reveal to you a sure fire way of reaching your objectives through this mostly misunderstood art.

The trouble with visualization is simple - its in its name!

When studying and contemplating the art of visualization most people have the impression that they must create visual images and make them real or life-like. Many people, in fact the majority, find this almost impossible to do. Even if they can formulate a solid picture of their objective they find it extremely difficult to sustain the image for any length of time. Either the image fades, changes or other intruding thoughts intervene.

This type of visualization is almost impossible to sustain and luckily it is not at all necessary. Why? Because it is in the subconscious mind that your visualization needs to be placed and there is good news. The subconscious mind does not know the difference between an imaginary event and a real one. Your visual image only needs to be a strong visually as any other imagined event. However, that is only half the story.

If all you had to do was just imagine stuff and your world automatically changed to reflect your imaginings this world would be full of chaos (not to mention all those creepy crawly bug-eyed monsters!). Therefore, there are a few more steps to complete before the visualization is passed to the subconscious for manifestation.

Let's try a little experiment. Remember a scene from your past that has a lot of good feelings around it. Any good memory will do, like the first time you heard the words "I love you" from your partner, an amazingly spectacular sunset, a great holiday event or your last birthday. Pick one and remember it. How clear is the image? Can you remember any sounds? What way did you feel? Is there any sense of touch, taste or smell? Identify how your memory works. Is it mostly visual, auditory, kinaesthetic or of a feeling nature?

Now we are going to create an imagined event in our lives that has the same strength and potency as that image. So relax and let's go.

Imagine something that you do everyday, something that you did yesterday, today and will do tomorrow. Let us take the example of waking up tomorrow morning. Don't try to add or take anything away, just think about it and analyse the scene. Is it dark or light? Are you lying next to someone in bed? Do you still feel tired? Has the alarm clock sounded? Are you irritable that you have to get up or full of joy at the dawn of a new day?

You will find that the imagined event is very similar to the memory with probably one key difference - your point of perspective. Is the memory behind you and the future event in front of you? Is one to the left and one to the right? Maybe they are both in front of you or the future seems to move in a clockwise direction. Whatever the perspective the thing to notice is that they are very similar in appearance.

Now imagine doing your future event a week from now, then a month from now, then six months from now. Where are those images placed? Are they moving further away, going clockwise, from left to right? This is your time-line and using it is important in visualization as you will see later.

Ok, let's imagine something that is very unlikely to happen and see where it differs from the last image.

Imagine you are sitting somewhere familiar which is extremely comfortable and relaxing to you. Now imagine that a person you know well comes up to where you are and says "hello". Imagine them telling you that they want to show you a new trick. All of a sudden they have three juggling balls. They throw them in the air and begin to juggle with ease. Then they begin to whistle one of your favourite tunes. You suddenly realize that there is a strong smell of flowers in the room and notice a vase of them just behind the juggler. Imagine laughing loudly at the scene and feeling joyful at the experience. Then the person juggling leans forward stands on leg and puts the other leg outstretched behind them. All the while still juggling and whistling. Then they begin to hop on their leg as a small bird flies over to perch on their head. Once you have the imagined event and stayed with it a few moments just let it fade.

Ok open your eyes. What was the difference between the two images? Can you spot any? Did you use more, less or roughly the same senses in your fantasy event as you did in the future one? Did you see them from different angles? Was the picture bigger in one than the other? Was the sound clearer, the feelings more acute or the smell stronger? Take some time and go back to each scene in your mind. How does the future event differ from the fantasy one? Are you looking at both from a different vantage point? Do you see yourself in the image of one but not the other? Analyse the scenes and see where they differ.

Have you identified how the future event differs from the fantasy one? If you have then its time to make visualization work for you! Take a goal that you have been working on or would like to achieve. Nothing too far-fetched at this point please! Pick something that is possible but at the moment seems a little impractical. Once you have it form a mental image of what it would be like to have, be or do that thing or be in that experience. Remember to form it the same way you do a memory. Give it the same strength visually, in sound, feeling, taste and touch - use your mind in its natural state. All you have to do is imagine the scene.

Ok how does it differ from the scene of waking in the morning? Can you identify the differences in perspective, sound, taste, touch, feelings and what you hear?

Now there will be one other key thing that differs in the images- it is very simple but often overlooked. You know that the future event is going to happen! This is reflected in the way we experience the image. So what we are going to do is fool your subconscious mind into thinking your goal is definitely going to happen by manipulating your goal image!

Once you know what the differences are in each image begin to change the goal image so that it is seen the same way as the future event in your imagination. Place the visualized scene in exactly the same position with the same perspective as your future event.

Place it in the correct position on your time-line. You may already begin to feel that the goal is more possible. Visualise in this way everyday and you will condition your subconscious mind to manifest the experiences necessary to make your goal attainment certain.

One more thing to remember: During the day think about your goal often. This reinforces the visualization and will begin to dispel doubt from your mind. hypnosis

preteen underage video could feel him rising, and could feel his hands on her preteen 8 15 pic as he guided her to lay on her stomach.
Shifting her position, Jack pulled on her hips, raising her ass up into the air,
his hands carressing the cheeks of her buttocks and then grasping her hips firmly, his hardness pressing once more into her warm folds.
She moaned as he slammed suddenly into her, the motion starting a chain reaction that continued as he violently pounded into her willing cunt.
His fingers gripped into her hips harshly, pulled her toward him, and as he thrust into her she felt herself propelled in the other direction,
only to be pulled quickly back. Her breasts swinging freely, preteen angels felt a tingling pain in her nipples as her breasts bounced in time to his thrusts.
She moaned as she felt him tense, arching her back and trying to further expose her sex, trying to take as much of him into her as possible.
To the side, in the mirror, she could see his figure above her, his head tilted back as he groaned his pleasure.
Emily.... Oh, God... Emily!
"Come, Jack... Please, Come..." preteen hidden pic pleaded, and she found that the words were more for her than for encouragement.
She wanted to feel the hot rush of his seed, wanted to drink it inside herself and hear his moans of pleasure.
Emily... Emily...
He slammed almost painfully into her, and preteen sex pic galleries found herself nearly screaming outloud at the wonderful abuse.
He filled her so completely that she felt nearly impaled; stretched her so intensely that she feared to be torn.
His fingers dug into her flesh, and she could hear him slapping against her as his moans began to rise.

Hosted business phone system is an ideal solution for business now. You don't have to worry about installing any software or hardware. However, can have access to all the features large business have. The best part is the price is very affordable. It starts from about $10/month. With this system you don't need a separate business phone line. You can use your personal cell phone or home phone. You will sound as professional as fortune 500 companies. I have been using toll free numbers from Callture-TelCan. I believe they provide the Toll Free Numbers at the best price. They even guarantee to beat any lower price by 10%.
