what's the happiest memory you have from your time serving?

I agree this question is kind of vague. What is the extent to which this technology is capable of bringing people back to life? How many times can an individual be revived? At any rate I have to take the affirmative side anyways.

My first question for you is, how do you define natural? How do you define unnatural? If we humans are natural beings, and the things we do are considered natural, isn't this process that we've created then born from something natural? I don't know if disrupting the flow from life to death is something unnatural. In nature it can be observed that things end right? Not necessarily in a morbid context either. Rivers have a finite amount of length, seasons continually span a definite amount of time, etc. My point is, why is it unnatural then for the 'natural' cycle of life and death to hit a point where it ends itself? Is it because its been around for a long time? The sun has been around for a long time and we know that it will eventually burn out. As seemingly infinite as the Earth's rotation and protective poles are things that are seemingly infinite but will eventually slow due to natural forces. Humans are just another agent of the natural order of things to bring an end to something like mortality. If we were unnatural, we wouldn't exist.

Overpopulation is the obvious concern for implementing something like this on a mass scale. Seemingly bringing back many deceased people would pose a population control problem. This is making the assumption that human ingenuity wouldn't be able to solve this issue. For one, as long as this process is not widely distributed and available for each individual to use at their whims, then the proper authorities (the government I assume because something like this would surely be regulated) could always put a hold on the use of this technology to allow populations to level themselves. Secondly however, I think that if we had the capability to bring back dead people, we would be able to preserve the brilliant minds of each generation. With a larger population that means more scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and other fields pertinent to allowing humanity to more efficiently use farm and utilize their resources. Interplanetary colonization (or at least to the moon) has been an increasingly researched topic over the past decade, and if we had the potential to bring back and retain the most prominent researchers, who is to say we couldn't break that threshold? Obviously this is groundless speculation, but it can be observed that with a greater population size (when we look at something such as productivity in economics for instance), there is more potential for scientific discovery, and if this population was stacked as this technology would essentially allow us to do, there is no telling what kinds of medical and scientific advancements could be made.                   

Almost forgot about this, sorry about that moola lol

I completely agree that mankind is an instrument of nature like any other, and by extension, that which is created by us is natural as well—not unlike an anthill or a coral reef. I assert that death is natural, because of course, all things in the Universe will one day die. It is not unnatural to prolong one's life, in fact, all organisms strive for this, but because the atrophy of time renders the ordeal inevitable, its being is as natural as its loathed status.

There are many variables that need to be identified in order to make a clear decision, such as those related to our biology. Are we keeping these people alive, but do their bodies still degenerate? If so, what are the implications of living two-hundred, maybe three-hundred years? What about one-thousand years? Regardless of whether or not we can technically bring these people back to life, humans were not designed to live past a certain point, and unless we’re talking about physically enhancing these people to some degree, the lives of these reanimated individuals will increase in difficulty as time goes on—potentially causing problems for society as a whole.

Now, it is entirely possible that our understanding will reach a point wherein we are able to sustain, at least temporarily, 100% growth in population. It is not reasonable however to assume that we will arrive at a nexus in technology that allows for complete accommodation of exponential growth, especially when considering the time frame. It won’t take long (relatively) for the Earth to become dangerously overpopulated (along with whatever space colonies we have) with the absence of death in society. With the clock ticking against us, it would be much more feasible to accept our typical course of being rather than battle with the accompanying problems that come strapped with immortality. Will there come a day when such a practice is realistic? Nobody can really say for certain; but is it realistic now? Decidedly not.

give me a splodeing opinion


Would you consider yourself wise

Well, that's an interesting question. I've been called wise, and I think it's one of my strong suits, but in many cases knowing the limits of our awareness is even more important than the things we're aware of. I will say that I strive for understanding; how well that works out varies lol.

what movie can you watch over and over again and not get tired of?

what would be the worst animal to be eaten by in your opinion?

Most of miyazaki's films, like howls moving castle, princess mononoke, spirited away, castle in the sky, etc.

As for the eating one, I'd say people. animals are one thing, but cannibals add a whole new level of creepiness to it.

What is the thing you look forward to most every day?

Not much anymore, but I suppose any moments that I can feel grounded. And of course, talking to all of you guys.

This questions is sort of vague, and circumstance plays a huge role, but I suppose if I have to choose a stance I'll take the negative.

Keeping in mind that dead people are often brought back to life under medical circumstances, if acted upon shortly after initial death, I'll assume you mean those who have long been clinically dead with no hope of resuscitation. I think that if the means to bring the deceased back to life were to be discovered, in most cases it should not be implemented—especially on a mass scale. Such a practice would result in a natural imbalance due to the halting of death rates. Creating an immortal population that continues to grow will ultimately end with suffering and destruction as our recourses will be stretched to the breaking point. Death is a natural and inevitable aspect of being. Our desire to be immortal is entirely rooted in personal dread, much to the detriment of our mental health, as such a state of eternal life will never be achieved, nor is it right to be. We should not sacrifice the balance of life to appease fear.

Yeah, definitely. Most games I just can't seem to get into anymore. Back in the day, I could pick up the most obscure or poorly designed game ever and be unconditionally enthralled every times I played. I just don't get the same enjoyment anymore, the same mystery, the same colorful dreamlike intrigue. I had no idea how games were made, I didn't understand the rules or design structure or anything like that, and because I couldn't put my finger on the origin or thought process, anything was possible in my mind. I'd spend so, so many hours looking for easter eggs, just walking around games and discovering little secrets, and it made me really happy. I barely ever beat them when I was young, but they were a hundred times more fun that way. I still don't ever use walkthroughs or look up the answers to questions in games, as a rule, but you just can't beat the childlike wonder of being a kid with a world in his hands.

What’s your ideal life

Difficult question. My ideal life would be one wherein I'm able to create and be imaginative for a living (something in art or writing), one where I go to many places and meet a lot of people, maybe get married and maybe have kids, I do think being a parent is criminally underrated. My dream would be to have a place in the city and also one in the mountains. I don't think I'd mind island life either. Overall, my ideal life would probably just be one that's saturated with all of the things that make living a special state of being; thought, fear, joy, pain, excitement, sleep, doubt, sadness, triumph, and everything else that organisms on Earth are privileged to experience. Though, I'm also sure that what I consider an ideal life will always be shifting, so I also wonder what it will be five or even twenty years from now.

NO OPINIONS!!!!!!!!!!!! X-O


How did you join sploder? What fuelled your short comeuppance here?

I joined Sploder at my grandma's house around seven years ago with my brother. I remember walking into the back room, seemed a lot bigger back then lol, and he was messing around with the shooter creator. We made an account and were on and off the site for some time before coming back for good one and a half years ago, when I first signed up for the forum.

I'm not sure what fueled my upward motion on here to be honest. I was new, there weren't many new members coming on at the time, and people seemed to like me from the start. There were plenty however that weren't too keen of me in the beginning. Budz for instance didn't like me at all but now we're really good friends. I was 17 at the time, so already older than most. I will say that I was struck by the community's overwhelming kindness and forthright acceptance towards me, both of which I'm very grateful for, and it's heartwarming to know you all trusted me with so much, even though I wasn't a forum veteran lol. It's a mystery to me too. ::)):

Whats your dream job?

Author, artist, maybe a game creator or something with music, just about anything creative I'd be happy doing. My dream employment would probably be a jack of all trades to be honest.

what made you YOU


Well, many many things. Off the top of my head, the crucial molding forces for me were periods of prolonged isolation (psychological and/or physical), nature, the philosophies of my parents, stories and poetry, music, and my many teachers. As for what makes me, me—that’s even harder to answer. If I had to name one aspect that separates me undeniably from others, it would be my inner self. I believe I have a very unusual brain, and that belief has been reiterated by doctors and personal experience for as long as I can recall. I don’t know for certain due to never having been another person (of course lol), but my thought patterns and sensibilities hardly correlate with those I meet. It can be frustrating sometimes. Tasks that are typically extremely difficult may be simple for me, whereas extremely simple tasks may be incredibly difficult; I’ve spent entire days just pacing around my house with my thoughts, and I think those thousands and thousands of hours of chronic sub-meditation coupled with several biological dispositions birthed the irregularities in my head lol.

But of course, nobody can answer that question! And that’s the interesting bit isn’t it? Our minds are so complex they can’t even understand themselves.
