The "Mouse Utopia Experiment" shows potential terrifying future for humanity!
The signs are already appearing. Takeven away the natural instincts and societal roles of an animal and watch chaos ensue.
Scary!

While there are some parallels that can be made between the test populations and the human population, it's not an exact match.

Still, these are scary results.

I think it is a good video for people to watch.

They didn't have to work to get their food....all was provided.
They didn't have to worry about defending their home....no natural predators.
The habitat could of housed more mice (up to 3000) but they became more concerned with individualization instead of society as whole.
Narcissists, sheep, dummies, violent trouble makers....they were all there.

Yes I'd say it's very similar to human society.

They took away needs but didn't add anything to replace it. It appears they suffered from extreme boredom. Never even went on to explain what led the die off. Maybe they advanced intellectually and they had to be put down...

Re: The "Mouse Utopia Experiment" shows potential terrifying future for humanity!
AWESOME post! I've repeatedly said that the reason we have the problems we have today is due to the removal of natural selection from the equation (not that I want anyone to die - it isn't their fault at this point). There has been too much interference by humans in the natural "way of life." We no longer have to fight for anything, and our days are spent accumulating chronic stress from sheep jobs that give us no sense of real satisfaction. (A small amount receive satisfaction from their work, but definitely not enough).

Plus, I believe travel is inherent in humans, and that has been taken way from everyone but the wealthy. The prices of plane tickets are insane. Being locked into one place with no hope for adventure takes a huge toll on the psyche and soul.

Being packed in takes a huge toll on one's patience, and as more people act like fools, the more other people become agitated and begin to become violent.

Re: The "Mouse Utopia Experiment" shows potential terrifying future for humanity!
Here's something else that is coming out!! Man is really getting some advanced ideas. How will we survive it all?

What are they teaching students in Seoul Korea these days?

More experiments and knowledge. They study behavior but they have learned how to creat as well. Keep an eye on this guy and his company that has joined in.
___________________________________________
Austin Heinz from Seoul university on Genomics

A company who can now build it’s own creations through created DNA. Can we afford this type of information in anyone’s hands? Some think we can.

Interview with Austin Heinz

Can you briefly introduce Cambrian Genomics, explain how the company got started, what was the background to the team and the original idea?

Originally I raised money to start the iGEM internation genetically engineered machines program at Duke when i was 21-22. Although we were able to do several projects i was frustrated by the pace of development. Going from idea to weakly working prototype could take over a year. Even though the design of that prototype might only take a few hours. Worse than that intelligence played almost no role in the speed of development. Being smart didnt matter since building (DNA cloning and assembly) was boring mindless work.

I decided to leave the US and leave my field to study EECS to learn how I could build a machine that would make DNA cheaply. My initial thoughts was that the machine would use microfluidics to increase scale, but it wasn't until I published a few papers in microfluidics that I began to see the limits in the technology. It's difficult to get things in and out of the chip. It's difficult to do multiple operations on the chip due to cross contamination. Eventually I discovered DNA laser printing which had the benefits of microfluidics, i.e scale, with all the advantages of doing things off chip: i.e easy access and no cross contamination. I presented this work at the synthetic biology 5.0 conference in stanford in june of 2011 and the rest is history.


Can you tell us a little about the process you went through to get investment?

When I came to the US from Seoul National University in korea where i was doing my phd, I had no connections, no resources and a few hundred dollars to my name. However, a few months earlier in june 2011 i attended a conference at Stanford and met an attendee, Mark Hamalainen, who worked at a local biotech company who became interested in seeing my work become a company and possibly investing.

When I came back to the Bay Area he invested and brought a few of his friends from SpaceX in on the deal. It was only $40k, though it was nearly the combined life savings of my first investors, but it gave me the breathing room to raise additional funds. My next check came from Jacquline Monash who'd been a benefactor of Singularity University. It was 250k and allowed me to buy the capital equipment i.e. The laser system to make thing seem real enough for a investors to come in more easily.

What is your next big goal?

To become the largest seller of sequence verified DNA in the world.

You recently described your vision of the future as "Anyone that has a mobile phone and bitcoin can create creatures." What exactly do you mean by this and how do you imagine it coming about?

I mean that anyone with a phone can use genome design software for instance Benchling which runs on a web browser and order genes and DNA to make creatures that are useful to them.

Will people only be able to create new single-cell life or do you imaging the invention of entirely new larger organisms?

Yes i think new multicellular life forms built from a text file are possible but we need more progress in construction of large artificial chromosomes and the ability to print and sequence methylated dna at scale.

How do you plan to stop people from using your technology to create very dangerous microorganisms?

Virtualization. Instead of mailing out DNA we will send the DNA to a virtualization center like Transcriptic, Synthego, or Emerald Cloud Lab. From there they can put thousands of different DNA strands into thousands of cells then make thousands of video files of what those cells are doing and then do image process and machine learning on those videos and send that data back to the user to do the next design.

Not until the final organism is made will it be evaluated for release. This definitely lowers the bar for us for processing orders because as long as the screening is heavily locked down there is little risk of release of malicious code.

The future sounds insane or under control of one big organization. What do you think?

The world is changing and most of humanity will not be included in this plan. Just look at how they are dismantling what is here to creat a new world.


There is the billionaire in Russia who wants to down load a human minde into a machine body as well and has many invested in this plan as well.

Man is really crazy about becoming it's own god.
