How deep is too deep?
How far is too far?
How fast is too fast?
In the past 5,000 years humans have come a long way. In the past 100 years humans have come a long way. What does the next 100 years have to offer? What does the next 5,000 years have to offer?
If you look at the past 100 years the things that were invented are amazing. Cars, airplanes, microwaves, refrigerators, tv, radio, oh and computers. I've been reading a lot about the future, and what's going to happen to the world. If computers keep getting faster and faster like they have for the past 30 years. Its a law called moore's law, every 18 months computers double in processing speed. You don't notice it on a day to day basis, but look at that computer your family bought 10 years ago for $2,000, that processed 600mhz now my current computer is rocking over 2ghz.
There is a point to this, around the year 2030 computers will hit a breaking point it is the point at which computers will be able to process something as quickly as the brain. The brain can compute roughly 10^30 computations per second. Now 2 years later computers will be able to process twice as fast as the brain. Then 2 years later 4 times as fast as the brain. So now all of a sudden computers are smarter than humans. Whats going to happen?
I have many predictions about this. First of all, computers will be integrated with humans. IE. 100 years from now all babies that are born will get a computer chip put inside their brain, that makes them a "super human". All humans will become "super humans" if you don't then you'll be a lower life form...like homo erectus to homo sapien or cromagnon to American. What will make the human super human, is almost like the matrix. If you wanna learn how to play the piano, you just think, "I wanna learn to play the piano.." The computer in your brain goes on the internet, finds out exactly how to play and teaches your brain and your muscles how to play instantaneously. It seems impossible, but its not. Just 100 years ago you would've never thought that it would be possible for any given human on this earth to fly to any place on the earth, all you need is money. 100 years ago I couldn't fly to Australia, shit, 100 years ago I would've never met an Aussie in my whole life.
I believe that the recent economic downturn in the world is coming on because of a shift in technological ages. You see car companies with huge losses, cutting 1,000's of jobs, why? I believe its simple supply and demand.
In the next couple of years you will see new companies spring up with new ideas new technologies and a new way of thinking. Don't be surpries if there is an AI company, a flying car company. A car that drives itself. We have the computer power to do it, its just a matter of implementing it. How do you create jobs, you come up with new ideas and you implement them. Cars were a new idea 100 years ago by Henry Ford. What are the new ideas today that will be so impactful on the next 100 years.
Solar energy? Wind energy? A new type of energy that has yet to be discovered? Eventually we will not need oil anymore....Or eventually we will run out of oil, and have to find another means for energy.
What happens when your computer starts talking to you? It will happen in 10 to 20 years. Right now the best we got is tivo telling you that it thinks you might like this tv show since you watch these tv shows.
I leave you with this thought....Humans made it to the moon in 1969, the computing power in that space ship isn't as good as the computing power of your cell phone. Did we land on the moon? Why haven't we been back in over 25 years?
There will be a lot more posts on the future in the future. I want to know what will happen, and how it's going to happen.

I wrote these poems on my blackberry randomly in the past week.
Cars in the sky,

Always in the night time.
You and I are lazy,
Don't touch the ground,
Playing on my brain screen.
Sometimes, right when your brain starts thinking clearly its time to go to sleep.

Bill Gates is a genious, read this speech that he wrote to high school kids.
Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they
not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good,
correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality
how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.
Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!
Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will
you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You
be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.
Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your
Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it
Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine
your mistakes, learn from them.
Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are
They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and
to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the
forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the
closet in your own room.
Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life
NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give
as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the
slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and
very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that
your own time.
Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually
have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
If you agree, pass it on.

If you are reading it in English -Thank a soldier!!

haven't written in a while so enjoy......
Is it possible to know more than someone, yet have them be smarter than you?
Are those quotes in peoples profiles deep thoughts or are they just stupid ass bullshit put there to fill up there profile?
When is it the right time to be wrong, and when is it the wrong time to be right?
Are you someone who goes with the flow, or do you need to plan everything out? What do you do if your plans get fucked up?
What do you do if you like someone but your not sure that they like you back, do you make a move and risk never being friends with the person or do u pussy out and just wait and see what happens? Is there a correct answer to this question? If there is someone please give me the answer.
How far is too far, and what happens if you get past too far? Do you get to the point of beyond too far, and what is that point called? Is it called way too far?
Questions i like to ponder all the time.....
If you didnt have to take money into account answer the following questions....
Where would you live?
What car would you drive?
Where would you go?
Who would you live with?
and the final question... WHAT IS STOPPING YOU FROM ACHIEVING ALL THIS?
The answer is if you set your goals high, nothing is impossible. Thats the bottomline. If you want to live somewhere where there is no winter, and it is 80 degrees and sunny everyday what is honestly stopping you? You could do it if you really wanted to, so why dont you. As the old saying goes, you only live once, so make the most of it.
If you had only a month to live and you knew that you were going to die what would you do for that month? Who would you talk to? where would you go? Would you continue your daily routine, or would you stray from it and get as much in as you could in your last months?
If you could travel the world where would you go? Rome, Egypt, Israel, Amsterdam, Greece?
Have you ever just sat back and watched the sunset. Im sure everyone has, but have you ever thought about this while watching the sunset.... Every single animal that has ever lived on the planet earth has seen the sunset. When we all die, the sun will still rise everyday and set everynight. From the dinosaurs to the ancient egyptians to the romans they all sat and watched the sunset, and the craziest part of all is that it is still just as amazing now as it was back then. Take a second next time you are driving home from work to just look as the sun is setting its so peaceful.
I have no ending.

deep thinking v. 3.14159265358 humans animals dinosaurs nuclear bombs|
well, it's been a while. haven't written in this b-i-itch in a while, so let me just shake the rust off of me real fast, hold up, (shake, shake, shake) aight i'm good to go....
lately i've been thinking alot about how humans are really just smart animals. We are indeed just one of the millions of animals on earth. What makes us so much better than a cow? There is only one thing, that is our brain. We are way smarter than cows. This lead me to start thinking about other animals that have ruled the world. And of course you have to think of the most ferocious animals to ever rule the world, which would be the dinosaurs.
No one really knows exactly what occured with the dinosaurs, because guess what, no human was around that long ago, so no one can know about dinosaurs. We know bits and pieces about the dinosaurs, but these bits and pieces change with each new fossil that is found. The current theory we have on why dinosaurs became extinct goes a little something like this...(here's a brief history leason for y'all) The dinosaurs were chillin doin there usual eating each other, and eatin some plants when all of a sudden a big ass asteroid and/or meteor hit the earth. The problem with this theory is that there really isnt a big enough hole anywhere in the ground to make the dinosaurs go extinct. Now if the meteor hit the water, i really don't think that it would do enough to cause the extinction of all dinosaurs. If the meteor did hit the water, then it wasn't a quick extinction of the dinosaurs, it was more like a very long extinction process. Meaning the tidal wave hit land, and killed some of the dinosaurs. It killed enough of them to ruin the food chain just a little bit. And after hundreds of thousands of years, the T-rex wasn't able to find any dinosaurs to eat anymore. This idea i think can't be correct. Unless the tidal wave was so big that it turned all land into water, and inturn killed all dinosaurs. But this can't be true, because then all other land animals would've died at that time, and all the land animals living in that time didn't die. So I believe that the dinosaurs didn't die from a meteor. Once again this is just my own opinion, there really is no way of knowing exactly how they died out.
I believe that the dinosaurs died from something that the earth did. Which would be a huge ass volcano, or an earthquake, that caused a volcano. Or something crazy like that. The way that the dinosaurs died wasn't from the original volcano, or earthquake, but it was the 100 years after the volcano occured. All the ash from the volcano now rises and sits in the earths atmosphere for 100 years or so. This gets rid of 90-95% of the sun light that gets to the earth. So now the trees don't grow leaves. This inturn makes all the dinosaurs taht just eat plants dead. Once they die the bigger dinosaurs that eat these plant eaters are now dead because they don't have any dinosaurs to eat. So thats how they died. Something to do with loss of sun light to the earth for 100's of years.
Now to the bigger question would humans be able to survive, without the sun for 100's of years. Imagine how cold it woudl be, no vegetables. I believe that we would be able to survive, but it'd be hard, and very depressing.
Crazy thought: What if there was an animal like humans that lived before dinosaurs. They had TV's Computers beds, houses, clothes. Everything that we have, basically. Then one day, they became so crazy and so angry at each other, that they just nuked the entire earth. Now there is no trace that they even lived on earth. Everything that they owned is just completely destroyed with no trace of any of it. Now the earth starts over again. After the entire earth stops being radioactive, darwinism begins, and plants bacteria animals start arriving as the years go by. If you think about it...human beings come from a single cell amoeba. Its crazy to think something so simple and mutate and adapt to its environment enough to become humans. So anyways lets say that humans lived on this earth 1 billion years after the earth was made. Now lets say that the humans nuked themselves, and just basically hit a reset button for earth. The second time that the earth has an animal that basically rules the world, the earth destroys that animal, because that animal was strong but stupid. So now humans take over the earth again. One day humnas will probably destroy themselves. Do you think that one day humans will kill themselves? Do you think that after humans destroy themseleves that humans will one day arise to power again? Do you think that the chain of events that occured to create humans, will occur again to create them again? Do you think that there will be a second christopher columbus, a second roman civilization, a second cold war, a second WTC attack? So here's the question its kinda like the matrix. In the matrix the program that is earth had been reset several times, and everytime the same things occured, until all the humans died, becasue they invented machines that became smart enough to kill humans. However everytime humans destroyed themselves the same events occured so that they got to the point to destroy themselves again. Do you believe that humans can ever arise to power again, if they become extinct? Crazy thoughts, hope that you guys followed along with what i just said. it's pretty crazy.
Now on to some other things that i have read in some other peoples journals and away messages, that i never responded to, but i will here....
Home: Once you become a college student, where exactly is your home? Is home your dorm room? Is home the house that your parents are living in? The funny part is, if your at a party and its like 2am you say, aight guys im goin home. And they assume that your going to your dorm room. But if you say to that same group of people "I'm going home for the weekend" They know that your going to the place where your parents live. So which one is your home? Home is, an ever changing place that you feel comfortable in, and where you have a bunch of friends and/or family around you; it is also a place with your personal belongings and where you sleep. If you're staying with your parents over the summer, and you go to stay at your apartment that you have at your school for the weekend, do you say, mom and dad, im going home for the weekend? NO! you say im goin to purdue for the weekend to chill, or something. I dont really knwo the point to what i just typed, but there is bound to be one.
I have so many thoughts to put on here, however there is something called laziness. Laziness and i are pretty tight, and we don't like updating this thing very often. I have also been doin a lot of school shit and just general work kinda stuff lately. I'll try to update more. psych! i'll do what i want bitches.
im done, hopefully you didn't read all of this, because it's stupd and boring, just like (insert stupid boring person here)(theres about 100 people i could put here, however everyone who reads this wouldnt know who i'm talking about)
I'll leave you with this...http://www.wagenschenke.ch/

deep thinking v. 3.14159265358 a scenario|
So check this out...
Imagine backing out of a parking spot, and forgetting to look behind you (like my sister did today) and you get in an accident. Not only is it annoying, but lets look at it more in depth. So you get in a car accident, and now the rest of your night is ruined. You miss goin to see a movie with a couple of friends. Had you gone and seen that movie you wouldve met this person that you were intrigued by, and ended up dating. WHich inturn u fall in love and have kids. Now imagine this whole scenario being your parents. Think that they wouldnt have ever gotten together if one of them got in an accident on their first day. If any 1 tiny thing can really make such a big difference.
Lets look at one more scenario same car accident, but this time instead of missing a movie you miss a date with your gf. In doing so you now end up breaking up. Which would be a bad thing, but inturn you end up meeting someone even better. But you never wouldve met this person had it not been for that stupid accident. The effects of such a small action can be so big, its crazy.
So just rememeber next time some crappy thing happens to you, that its all good because life is just one big flow. And it will end up working out best for you. I leave you with this, I wrote it for feldman because her great grandpa just passed away.....
You may not see it now, but whatever we learn has a purpose and whatever we do affects everything and everyone else, if even in the tiniest way. Why, when a housefly flaps his wings, a breeze goes round the world; when a speck of dust falls to the ground, the entire planet weighs a little more; and when you stamp your foot, the earth moves slightly off its course. Whenever you laugh, gladness spreads like the ripples in a pond; and whenever you're sad, no one anywhere can be really happy. And it's much the same thing with life, for whenever you share your love with someone, it stays with them forever. And it spreads from person to person. A single person can affect so many around them. So lets celebrate life, and all its happiness, celebrate the thanksgiving dinners, the super bowl parties, the times when happiness is shared by all because everyone is happy to be with each other. A time when just one person can rub off in such a way that they can make the entire room a little bit happier. Someone that is not only the life of the party but can put you in a good mood whenever you feel down. Lets celebrate the good, thats the only way they would have it.

deep thinking v. 3.1415926535.5 round 2|
relationships, relationships, everyones got them, but everyone's relationships seemed to be fucked up a little bit. So lets discuss.
long term relationships
we are getting to the point in our lives, at the age that we are, that if you are in a long term relationship with someone you have to be starting to think about marriage. Some couples talk about it, others dont, because they are scared. Here's my question to everyone in a long term relationship with someone...If you met the most amazing girl and she wanted to start a relationship with you, would you try it before spending the rest of your life with the person you are currently dating? I realize that it wouldnt be easy to break it to someone that you have been dating for a long ass time that you wanna stop dating them for someone that you just met, but don't you wanna make sure that the person that you spend the REST OF YOUR LIFE with is the best fit for you. It's a tough decision that you have to make. Why settle for someone that is good for you but not perfect? It's the rest of your life, thats a long ass time, an extra year of searching around and testing other peope won't hurt anyone.
the same kinda thing occurs when starting a new relationship. After you spend some time with a person and you think they are cool, you have to decide if you want to be in a relationship with them, or if you can do better. Some people keep saying that they can do better, but inturn they never have a girlfriend because no one is "good enough" for them. The thought is that you dont wanna be dating someone that is just ok for you and have someone who is awesome for you come around, but you arent able to date the awesome person because you are dating the OK person. I know this is probably a little confusing, but too bad, i hope everyone can understand it. What ends up happening with this short term relationship thing, is that you just say that the girl is just ok for you, and you could do better, but then you end up getting nothing. So is it better to get nothing, or is it better to get someone that is ok, and may end up bein awesome if you just get to them better?
This same premise applies again to hooking up. When you goto a party you look around for the person that you could see yourself hooking up with. Before i get into this theory, this theory is based more off straight looks, while the other 2 are more off of personality and looks combined. So your at a party and you are looking around and talking to girls, you find a girl that is pretty into you, and it is the beginning of the night. Do you decide to get with this girl, or do you wait it out and see if you can do better. In this instance you usually get with the girl, if she is good looking or better. Not waiting for someone better to come around, because you now have some ass locked up for the night.
I have found in my studies (which isn't that much) that the hook up theory and the start of a relationship theory are exact opposites in people. I find that people who get with a person at the beginning of a night and hook up with them by the end of the night tend to be the same people who have a hard time starting a relationship. They are the people who think that they can keep doing better, but instead they have jack shit.
I dont really know what the point of this journal entry was, but i think it has something to do with the fact that everyones relationships are so fucked up. Hopefully this made u think a little bit.
