It sounds as though the idea was pulled straight from a Hollywood movie script, but Russian billionaire Igor Ashurbeyl is really, in actuality, building a “Noah’s Ark” in space for 15 million Earthlings to escape Earth and begin a brand new civilization on space arks. The cosmic endeavor, although still in its early stages, has already accrued 300,000 sign-ups from hopeful future citizens, and has formed its own flag, national anthem, and parliamentary committee…
The world’s first fake memory has been successfully implanted. Scientists have confirmed that they have been able to generate an artificial memory, implant it into the brain of a mouse, and then make the mouse recall the fake experience as though it had really happened. The goal of the experiment is to eventually help those who struggle with memory impairment or with traumatic memories - perhaps one day leading to a common practice of memory manipulation or even memory deletion.
Culture’s pervasive “fake news” trend is about to get a whole lot faker. Not only can news stories themselves be totally made up and manipulated, but now, the author of fake news itself may not even be real! An artificial intelligence text generator called GPT-2 has recently been put into operation by the research firm OpenAI, and GPT-2’s writing skills have already become almost virtually indiscernible from that of real human writers.
Religion in Japan is getting a brand new face, and that face belongs to an android. In an effort to breathe life into Buddhism, a Japanese temple has introduced a non-living, robotic priest to serve as a spiritual guide for followers. The artificially intelligent droid is capable of delivering sermons, answering questions, and continually advancing. Learn more about the religious robot and see it in action here!
Remember the good old days when there were only nine planets? Nowadays, NASA announced, as of July 25, 2019, that with the help of now-retired Kepler Space Telescope, they have discovered a staggering 4,102 alien planets. And with another 20,000 planetary discoveries predicted to come in the future using TESS, NASA’S new Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, NASA has an incredible cosmic field open to explore.
At around the 1-hour mark of the interview [in episode 122], your guest mentioned the term "Enochian". The former military member cited the "Enochian characters" he saw while scanning a strange, unknown language; and his superior told him that it was "Enochian" … Why this is fascinating is that, in Nick Redfern's book "Final Events," he documents how the CIA (and other government agencies) were experimenting with "Enochian technologies"…
The future is now, and it brings with it flying cars, artificial rain, human gene editing, and invasive government surveillance! At least that’s the plan for a developing, $500-billion-dollar city in Saudi Arabia called Neom. On the surface Neom sounds like a futuristic utopia, where robot maids clean up after its citizens, artificial rain creates lush gardens in the middle of a desert, and glow-in-the-dark beaches light up the night… But what lurks on Neom’s deeper, darker level?
Everyone’s heart is different. Like the iris or fingerprint, our unique cardiac signature can be used as a way to tell us apart. Crucially, it can be done from a distance. A new device, developed for the Pentagon after US Special Forces requested it, can identify people without seeing their face: instead it detects their unique cardiac signature with an infrared laser.
