@jaen If my mind runs on computers, I could just move between countries wihout traveling.

crocket03:02:32

I could just remotely control robot bodies in other countries.

crocket03:02:18

This is going to hugely cut down traveling fees. You don't have to ride an airplane. You just need to transfer your mind or remotely control robots.

crocket03:02:45

International geopolitical borders will become a joke.

jaen03:02:32

One of these days, hopefully ; d Wouldn't mind being a computer if that would let me travel to the stars - I'm a space kind of person.

meow03:02:49

@crocket what about virtual reality control?

meow03:02:15

or would you get that effectively via the robot?

meow03:02:05

then you could multitask and control several vr robots in multiple location from within a secure bunker on a tropical island

meow03:02:33

would have to own the entire island and deal with the UN, but whatever

meow03:02:03

that's the direction I'm going at least

crocket03:02:28

@meow: Are you rich?

meow03:02:47

no money

meow03:02:53

just vision

meow03:02:06

better that way

crocket03:02:14

Virtual reality is not good enough.

crocket03:02:31

What if you wanted to open a bank account in estonia? You actually need to be physically there.

meow03:02:44

yeah, it sucks now, but someone has to drive it to something useful - I just call it vr

meow03:02:02

no you don't - someone in your trusted network needs to

meow03:02:25

and why have a bank account - do not participate in the existing system

crocket03:02:41

That's easier said than done.

meow03:02:52

money is corrupt

meow03:02:02

everything is easier said than done

meow03:02:08

excuses are for the weak

crocket03:02:11

It'd be a lot easier if it's possible to remotely control robots on foreign lands.

meow03:02:14

yes, I agree

crocket03:02:28

Remotely controlled robots can shake national infrastructures.

tolitius03:02:42

@crocket, apologize if I am missing some context.. read the whole (today's) discussion, and just curious what is the problem that you guys are trying to solve: "not going to Clojure conferences to remain incognito?"

meow03:02:45

I want an island

meow03:02:15

this now has nothing to do with events and should move to off-topic

meow03:02:18

I'll go there

meow16:02:39

where is my island

meow16:02:15

oops, wrong channel, sorry
