The Saturday News Post

I have found a few subjects that seldom get covered by the MSM for it does not bleed or rant or appeal to the big spenders…..but there is me who does not answer to the master of the universe.

Did you ever see the Matrix trilogy?  Of course you did!

Well there is a chance it is REAL!

In an influential 2003 paper, University of Oxford philosopher Nick Bostrom laid out the possibility that our reality is a computer simulation dreamed up by a highly advanced civilization. In the paper, he argued that at least one of three propositions must be true:

  1. Civilizations usually go extinct before developing the capability of creating reality simulations.
  2. Advanced civilizations usually have no interest in creating reality simulations.
  3. We’re almost certainly living inside a computer simulation.

I am a pain sufferer….at times it is massive and I have been following many of the techniques to the control of this problem.  One of those treatments is the microdosing of Psychedelics…..

People who take microdoses of psychedelic drugs consistently report that it results in improved mood and creativity, while having few side effects, according to new research published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology.

Study author Rotem Petranker, director of the Canadian Centre for Psychedelic Science, and his colleagues noticed a growing public interest in taking sub-threshold doses of LSD or psilocybin to enhance cognitive or emotional functioning. But scientific research on the issue is scant.

More news of the “acid” front…..

New research lends further credibility to anecdotes that microdosing lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), or taking too little of the psychedelic drug to trip but enough to feel effects, can help your focus.

In the placebo-controlled study, published in the journal European Neuropsychopharmacology on Saturday, scientists from Switzerland’s University of Basel and the Netherlands’ Maastricht University gave volunteers either a small dose of LSD or a placebo, then measured their ability to pay attention and process information, as well as keeping an eye on their mood.

Good news for Mobile users….the Moon is getting cellular service…..yep that is correct a service for the Moon….

NASA wants any human presence on the Moon to have a great cell signal, so it’s investing in a lunar 4G network.

The Space Agency gave Nokia’s Bell Labs a $14.1 million in grant money to build out the Moon’s telecom infrastructure, Business Insider reports. With the goal of having a network up and running by 2030, the goal is to get a network in place that could help any sort of outpost on the Moon manage life off-world.

Speaking of space communications…..

It’s no secret that SpaceX CEO Elon Musk wants to build a city on Mars.

But in a recent interview with TIME magazine, SpaceX president and COO Gwynne Shotwell laid out the company’s plans to bring its Starlink broadband satellite constellation technology to the Red Planet as well.

“Once we take people to Mars, they’re going to need a capability to communicate,” Shotwell said during a previously recorded interview with TIME. “In fact I think it will be even more critical to have a constellation like Starlink around Mars.”

Musk sees dollar signs every time he mentions space……

Ever heard of a “universal translator”?

MIT has come up with one for “dead” languages…..

A team of researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have created an AI that’s capable of automatically deciphering long lost languages, even without any other advanced knowledge of how it relates to other languages.

The goal is to uncover relationships between “lost” languages for which historians have found written records, but which nobody has actually spoken in a long time.

  1. I think living in a computer simulation might be preferable to all this actually being real!
    I won’t be planning to telephone anyone on The Moon anytime soon, I am sure of that.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Wow! Nobody of them lost creativity. Lol I will phone some of our officials, when they are brought to the moon. 😉 I am sure i will never need a flatrate for this. :-)) Michael
