A couple of weeks back, I was watching Ancient Aliens on History 18. The topic of discussion was that the aliens may have sent robots from time to time across various regions of the planet to gather information and send it back to their home planet. What type of information they might have sent wasn’t discussed. While watching that episode a weird thought crossed my mind. What if we are the robots these aliens planted on this planet? Does that make sense?
When the show was over, I started thinking about the idea. If we look at ourselves as a machine, what I said makes sense to a great extent. Although we have unlocked much of the secrets of our body, The biggest secrets are yet to be revealed. The biggest puzzle of the human body is the brain. A lump of flesh floating in a liquid that controls each and every muscle of the body. It’s quite fascinating.
Now… When I look at my body as a machine, I find that many of the parts are replaceable. Eyes, Heart, Liver, Kidney etc. Tremendous amount of resources have been allocated towards the research of human body. Just like the organs, even external parts like, limbs can be replaced. Though they don’t function a hundred percent like the original, they make your life almost normal. I have no doubt that we would be able to see robotic limbs which function like a the flesh counterpart in near future. The android era, just like the the mobile OS, is closer than we think.
Apart from brain, my fascination is towards the disease which infect the human body. These viruses and bacteria which cause those diseases are micro organisms. One requires microscope to see them. So tiny organisms which keep on evolving and infecting this human machine. This doesn’t stop here. Human body has it’s own anti-virus software which is called immune system. Even this keeps evolving. Most of the times, this anti-virus software wins and keeps the machine clean from the viruses, bacteria and malware. But when it cannot, the machine fails to function properly. External updates in form of medicines can help the body recover. When, even these updates cannot stop the infection, it leads to the death of the machine. What happens after the death is a mystery which hasn’t been solved yet. Maybe all the data from brain is transferred to some centralized unit for processing and helping to make a better machine.
The free will given to the brain makes it possible to think new ideas and their implementation. These ideas lead to the progress of this machines. Where these ideas come from? Are they already programmed into us? Is there some event that riggers these ideas at specific times? These are some more mysteries which will remain unsolved till the death.
Enjoy this machine form as long as you can. Stay fit. Do good to you and those around you.
And Think Nonsense…
Time machine has always been a fantasy. Thousands of fictional books have been written on this topic and still many more to come. Same is with movies. The classic Back to the future series is the best example I can give at this moment. Although movies on this subject are dried up they will not stop. There will be more in future. This is one fantasy which all will love to come true. Well.. I have good news for you then.
Here is a smart guy named João Magueijo from Portugal who found a great breakthrough. Almost all of us know that light travels at 3 lakh kilometers per second. (If you don’t know then you bunked your science classes. You may skip this post as it may not turn out interesting to you.) But this guy thinks that the speed of light varies. Due to this Einsteins theory will go in vain. This means we can travel with speed of light.
We will be able to travel in space, solve the mystery of black holes and travel through time. Forget about first two, What will you do if you can travel between times? I have many things to do there. Erasing some bad memories will help. But I don’t want to erase all of them. I would love to visit my grandma. I miss her a lot. I would like to transfer Microsoft, Google, Yahoo on my name at the time of their launch. I would also love to hold bush straight when the reporter throws shoes at him.
Many of you will travel in your future first so as to secure it. I would travel into my back life. There were many happy moments which I would love to visit again and enjoy again. Some silly fights which I want to correct. Why should I worry about the future which I haven’t seen??(That’s a mandatory question. Otherwise it means a lot.) Time machine will solve many of my problems.
So I’ll repeat again the same question? what will you do if you have time machine?
There are many thing in this world which make your life easy. It’ll be more precise if I use the word lazy. Yeah they make us lazy. Due to Bikes and Cars we don’t walk much. Even a distance of 5-6 minutes we cannot walk. That is the effect of the machinery and life easy making goods. We don’t even know but they are making us lazy. Take this example.
This is a product called “Hubbacino USB Hub and Cup Warmer”. It just does a simple thing. I don’t even have to tell you what does this do. But for the sake of people like me I have to write this. This product simply keeps the cup of tea or coffee warm.
Many of us drink tea or coffee while working on Computer or Laptop. It is coffee most of the time. And while working or chatting or doing whatever you do on Computer, you forget the cup of coffee you brought. And you have to go again into the kitchen and make it warm again. So that you can enjoy it’s flavor. But this little things makes you lazy. It just don’t want you get up from your chair.
Just attach this to an USB port and keep the coffee cup on it. This little thing keep the cup warm and you can enjoy the coffee till it’s over. You don’t have to worry about coffee becoming cold and rushing to kitchen. And it’s not just cup warmer but also acts like a Hub.
Actually this company should pay me for this review which will increase their sales. But I’m doing this for free. I’m not a greedy person. 😀
