1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    As humanity is rapidly approaching the so-called "singularity", I believe that there's a need for us to understand and prepare for the world that is going to be. Some may have a very grim and dark view of the future, but I think we're about to become citizens of the world where peace and harmony become a standard way of living.

    For nearly 15 years, I've been studying and contributing to the fields of renewable energy, robotics, sociology, and anthropology. Alongside my formal studies and duties, I've also informally explored neuroscience, biology, astrophysics, quantum mechanics, as well as the ancient and modern spiritual sciences (Anthroposophy) including Yi Jing, Kuji-in, Tai Chi, Christianity, Buddhism, and Islam.

    Using this collection of powerful set of tools is what I think will make the difference in the upcoming decades. With the help of today's distributed supercomputers powered by the existing nuclear energy infrastructure, we as humanity are already attempting to understand and shape the kind of future I'm talking about -- I've seen it with my own pair of eyes. Robots are not going to kill us, governments are not going to poison us, and aliens will not going to cook us for lunch. I'm 99.9% sure.

    Things have changed. We are used to predicting short-term future using an outdated technique known as "linear extrapolation". Today, that method does not apply to most of us who have at least a little bit of knowledge of advanced mathematics. Even popular culture appears to have recently started to embrace non-linear thinking.

    I believe that we've passed the majority of the bumps and obstacles in our way, and it's going to become a smooth ride very soon. During my journey on this Earth, I've interacted with hundreds of thousands of individuals, and I see that almost everyone is trying very hard to be good. And if we keep it up, I have no doubt that we will turn this world into the most beautiful and most awesome place in the universe.

    We're almost there!

    I love your optimism and I am quite envious that you still hold so much faith in the future.

    I don't know where you live exactly, you may even live in the US like me. We're having a bit of a domestic crisis in regard to several issues. After months of studying things in much greater detail than ever before, I personally can only see a handful of ways that this comes to a head.

    I'm not disrespecting you or your views. Quite the contrary. Part of me wishes that I *was* you and that I still had so much faith in the system.

    I guess all I can say is that I sincerely hope that you are 100% correct. :vibes:
