We start in 2019 and travel exponentially through time, witnessing the future of Earth, the death of the sun, the end of all stars, proton decay, zombie galaxies, possible future civilizations, exploding black holes, the effects of dark energy, alternate universes, the final fate of the cosmos - to name a few.

This is a picture of the future as painted by modern science - a picture that will surely evolve over time as we dig for more clues to how our story will unfold. Much of the science is very recent - and new puzzle pieces are still waiting to be found.

To me, this overhead view of time gives a profound perspective - that we are living inside the hot flash of the Big Bang, the perfect moment to soak in the sights and sounds of a universe in its glory days, before it all fades away.  Although the end will eventually come, we have a practical infinity of time to play with if we play our cards right. The future may look bleak, but we have enormous potential as a species.

This is what YouTube was made for. Small, independent documentaries that transcend anything seen on TV.

Absolutely grand visuasl and stunning storytelling.

It feels like a crime watching these for free.

"Are we alone? This experience takes you to alien worlds and distant places in time and space, in search of where alien life might be hiding and what our place is within the history of life.  After generations of wondering, the truth is finally within our reach.  New research and technologies have brought us closer than ever to an answer - only a few decades in the eyes of some NASA scientists.

The search has led to new discoveries that will blow your mind wide open and give a profound new perspective on human life. The deeper we look, the deeper we see into nature's imagination, and the more we learn about ourselves.  I hope stewing on these thoughts tickles your brain as deeply as it does mine.

In upcoming chapters of Life Beyond we will explore making contact with intelligent life, the potential physics of alien biology, how to survive the end of the universe, and more."

"Are we alone?  The search for an answer has led to new discoveries that will blow your mind wide open and give a profound new perspective on human life. The deeper we look, the deeper we see into nature's imagination, and the more we learn about ourselves."


LIFE BEYOND II:
"Who's out there?  To have any hope of finding alien life, we need to know what we're looking for. This experience will take you to far off planets and places in the universe to explore some of the most tantalizing questions in science: what would alien life be like?  What forms are possible under the laws of nature?  How weird could it get?



The latest research is offering mind-blowing possibilities"

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Relationship trouble with a friend...
« on: November 10, 2020, 01:28:35 PM »
Help.

I don't know what to do.

My only friend and only person I really talk with for 9 years told me he loves me. But he lives in the USA so I told him we should find other people because long-distance relationship won't work I think.

Now he's saying he'll never feel happy again and that I should live my life without him and leave him alone.

But I need him in my life otherwise I'll have no friends, nobody. I feel heart broken. Too many emotions. I can't handle this before bed.

We are emotionally dependent on each other. We were very close and shared everything. Were also planning to go to a virtual furry convention on VR chat and have a great time. The closest thing we'll be to getting together.

Shit ):

Said I shouldn't call him again): I feel so confused and almost like crying. Such an emotional wreck

-changed title because it looked bad and clickbaity, sorry I was very upset with myself...

Everywhere at the end of time' is a series exploring dementia,
its advancement and its totality.




STAGE 1 : 00:00:00
Here we experience the first signs of memory loss. This stage is most like a beautiful daydream.
The glory of old age and recollection. The last of the great days.


00:00:00 - A1 - It's just a burning memory
00:03:32 - A2 - We don't have many days
00:07:02 - A3 - Late afternoon drifting
00:10:38 - A4 - Childishly fresh eyes
00:13:36 - A5 - Slightly bewildered
00:15:38 - A6 - Things that are beautiful and transient
00:20:12 - B1 - All that follows is true
00:23:44 - B2 - An autumnal equinox
00:26:31 - B3 - Quiet internal rebellions
00:30:02 - B4 - The loves of my entire life
00:34:06 - B5 - Into each others eyes
00:38:42 - B6 - My heart will stop in joy




STAGE 2 : 00:41:22
The second stage is the self realisation and awareness that something is wrong with a refusal to accept that. More effort is made to remember so memories can be more long form with a little more deterioration in quality. The overall personal mood is generally lower than the first stage and at a point before confusion starts setting in.

00:00:00 - C1 - A losing battle is raging
00:05:03 - C2 - Misplaced in time
00:09:46 - C3 - What does it matter how my heart breaks
00:12:25 - C4 - Glimpses of hope in trying times
00:17:07 - C5 - Surrendering to despair
00:21:45 - D1 - I still feel as though I am me
00:25:53 - D2 - Quiet dusk coming early
00:29:30 - D3 - Last moments of pure recall
00:33:23 - D4 - Denial unravelling
00:37:39 - D5 - The away ahead feels lonely




STAGE 3 : 01:23:17
Here we are presented with some of the last coherent memories before confusion fully rolls in and the grey mists form and fade away. Finest moments have been remembered, the musical flow in places is more confused and tangled. As we progress some singular memories become more disturbed, isolated, broken and distant. These are the last embers of awareness before we enter the post awareness stages.

01:23:17 - E1 - Back there Benjamin

01:27:33 - E2 - And heart breaks
01:31:38 - E3 - Hidden sea buried deep
01:32:59 - E4 - Libet's all joyful camaraderie
01:36:12 - E5 - To the minimal great hidden
01:37:53 - E6 - Sublime beyond loss
01:40:03 - E7 - Bewildered in other eyes
01:41:55 - E8 - Long term dusk glimpses
01:45:29 - F1 - Gradations of arms length
01:47:00 - F2 - Drifting time misplaced
01:51:16 - F3 - Internal bewildered World
01:54:45 - F4 - Burning despair does ache
01:57:22 - F5 - Aching cavern without lucidity
01:58:41 - F6 - An empty bliss beyond this World
02:02:19 - F7 - Libet delay
02:06:15 - F8 - Mournful cameraderie
02:06:15 - F8 - Mournful cameraderie
02:06:15 - F8 - Mournful cameraderie




STAGE 4 : 02:08:53
Post-Awareness Stage 4 is where serenity and the ability to recall singular memories gives way to confusions and horror. It's the beginning of an eventual process where all memories begin to become more fluid through entanglements, repetition and rupture.

02:08:53 - G1 - Stage 4 Post Awareness Confusions
02:31:02 - H1 - Stage 13 Post Awareness Confusions

02:52:55 - I1 - Stage 4 Temporary Bliss State
03:13:58 - J1 - Stage 13 Stage 4Stage 4Post Awareness Confusions




STAGE 5 : 03:36:12
Post-Awareness Stage 5 confusions and horror. More extreme entanglements, repetition and rupture can give way to calmer moments. The unfamiliar may sound and feel familiar.
Time is often spent only in the moment leading to isolation.[/i]

03:36:12 - K1 - Stage 5 Advanced plaque entanglements
03:58:49 - L1 - Stage 5 Advanced plaque entanglements
04:21:37 - M1 - Stage 5 Synapse retrogenesis
04:42:25 - N1 - Stage 5 Sudden time regression into isolation




STAGE 6 : 05:04:32
Post-______Awareness Stage 6 is without description.

05:04:32:04:21 - O1 - Stage 6 A confusion so thick you forget forgetting
05:26:25 - P1 - Stage 1 -------------------
05:48:02 - Q1 - Stage 6 ------- Long decline is over---------
06:09:12 - R1 - Stage 6 ----------------------------------------------------------------

The Lounge / Films from my collection, 1900-1980 mostly amateur
« on: July 12, 2020, 12:01:12 PM »
I have been working with FILMKAPITAAL for a while to digitize my growing collection of film. I have already shown many bits and pieces on this forum.

I thought it would be better to form a central thread about this, because I don't want to spam this forum.

This collection contains films from 1900 to 1980, mostly amateur material.

From things like typical vacation snaps to picking up a Mercury space capsule, a family building their home in East Berlin and 9.5mm shots of Nazi officers.

Now I have thought a long time about what presentation format would suit this. I myself am not a fan of watermarks on old film images, but FILM CAPITAL wants it.


I have had these images from a trip to South America for a while. Not the most beautiful or special images, but quite old. Also recorded with a curious aspect ratio at 16mm.





Good to see what works nicely for you guys or not ... let me know!

This is the most cursed audio tape I ever heard.

Its absolutely gruesome and most certainly haunted.

The Peoples Temple Agricultural Project, better known by its informal name "Jonestown", was a remote settlement established by the Peoples Temple, a cult under the leadership of Jim Jones, in Guayana Esequiba, a disputed territory in northwestern Guyana claimed by Venezuela.

It became internationally known when, on November 18, 1978, a total of 918 people died at the settlement, at the nearby airstrip in Port Kaituma, and at a Temple-run building in Georgetown, Guyana's capital city. The name of the settlement became synonymous with the incidents at those locations.

In total, 909 individuals died in Jonestown,all but two from apparent cyanide poisoning, in an event termed "revolutionary suicide" by Jones and some Peoples Temple members on an audio tape of the event, and in prior recorded discussions. The poisonings in Jonestown followed the murder of five others by Temple members at Port Kaituma, including United States Congressman Leo Ryan, an act that Jones ordered. Four other Temple members committed murder-suicide in Georgetown at Jones' command.

Terms used to describe the deaths in Jonestown and Georgetown evolved over time. Many contemporary media accounts after the events called the deaths a mass suicide. In contrast, most sources today refer to the deaths with terms such as mass murder-suicide, a massacre, or simply mass murder. Seventy or more individuals at Jonestown were injected with poison, and a third of the victims (304) were minors. Guards armed with guns and crossbows had been ordered to shoot those who fled the Jonestown pavilion as Jones lobbied for suicide.

If you do not want to be absolutely traumatized by the end of this recording and think about it non-stop for several days, like I, it is best to not play it.

Its a very sad recording indeed, especially when you read the transcripts. I can not fathom how this happened. How all these people just threw core morals and values out of the window and murdered each other, including children.

I suppose this is a warning for us all, as it shows how powerful a collective can become in overriding basic human decency.

Uncanny. The recording is fucked.

Arts & Entertainment / Netherlands in 1928: Amateur 16mm film
« on: May 22, 2020, 06:04:58 AM »


In the 1920s, there was an American family who could afford a lot of 16mm film.

They have made many recordings during trips through Europe and America, including in the Netherlands.

From that collection I have acquired the original 16mm recordings in the Netherlands.



With the following index:

Holland
The Hague.
Scheveningen.
The Peace Palace.
Hotel Des Indes.
Zuider Zee.
Island of Marken.
Voledam.
Dairy and Cheese Farm Amsterdam.

This is going to be something special when put on YouTube.

I am wondering,

How are all the people on this forum doing in these trying times.

Have you gone crazy due to the quarantine, caused by a lack of social contact, emotional fulfilment and freedom. Or are you able to run this one out, and are doing fairly well, keeping yourself occupied with hobbies, art and naturally this web forum.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Are we a simulation?
« on: April 25, 2020, 03:41:11 AM »
What if our universe is merely a simulation?

A fake reality made by a dying civilization at the border-line end of the Heat Death of the universe.

With their last energy reserves they simulate an almost unlimited amount of worlds like theirs, with the hope a species in one will eventually figure out a new means of harvesting energy, or a way to kick-start random diversion of energy to form stars.

A new animation series created by independent animators on YouTube.

They actually got all the attention from a student film short: Santina wants a glass of water:


So much attention and love from the audience, that they were able to setup funding for a series!

Here is the first episode: Bring Your Demon to Work Day



A real improvement in animation style and fluidity, its great!

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Process the passing of your parents.
« on: April 13, 2020, 01:07:03 PM »
One of my good friends had both his parents die in quick succession, one after a several week sick-bed and the other of a heart attack. This fucked up his life completely as he had to leave his parent's home There are a lot of other things at play here, but that is the gist of it.

This was several years ago, but he has not really been able to process this. I wish I could help him. He told me he as nightmares almost every night, and sometimes almost hears their voices. He is just so damn tired of the same dream every night, where he just hugs his mother and cries. Thankfully this has been getting better as I kept pushing him to get his sleep rhythm back to normal.


For the last year i've been trying to encourage him to meet old friends, get back in touch with his family that he broke all contact with because of...

I've also been encouraging him to clean his apartment, which he did last month. But with services down he has to wait before throwing stuff away and donating things to goodwill. He met some old co-workers of his dad, had a beer. I'm glad he's going out more to exercise  and meet friends instead of staying in his apartment all day.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / The Digital Mind
« on: February 23, 2020, 11:31:15 AM »
Do you believe technology will eventually reach a processing power and data-density capable of simulating  a 1:1 copy of someone's brain?

I myself... am rather sceptical.

I think the deeper meaning behind this question is, and perhaps more importantly... can that which makes up the human psyche, emotions.. dare I even say -SOUL- be quantified by a single biological mechanism? and accurately converted to 1s and 0s.

Or would such a construct merely be an EMPTY IMITATION of the source's mind?
