Your best advice is going to be to approach the subject scientifically. Interact with women on a daily basis and figure out what works and what doesn't. Or, go read red pill shit, because that's what they did already. The number one thing to remember is that women are naturally hypergamous. They are always trying to marry up. Some of them overcome this urge but it's still there. Lift weights and improve yourself before you try to fuck with women.

It's a widely-recognized truth that there are too many white men in science, and we need to increase the amount of POC and women scientists. Diversity will not only make science more inclusive but also open possibilities for new scientific breakthroughs and discoveries.

>It has a density of 5.65 g/cm3, about 1.024 times Earth's density of 5.51 g/cm3. The higher density of TRAPPIST-1e implies a very Earth-like composition and a solid rocky surface. This is also unusual among the TRAPPIST-1 planets, as most are completely covered in either a thick steam atmosphere, a global liquid ocean, or an ice shell.
I mean, it's a possibility.

Alright let me share my personal story a bit maybe emphasize with me
im living with my parents aswell
Have only 2 rooms in my apartment and a 10 yo sister.
Never had my personal room
Im one year away from college
Have to study my ass off but my mom is not working and always inviting her friends over and talking really loud
Every single morning when i make myself a coffe and leave it on the kitchen table to piss or smth when i come back it's gone
One day i had enough and decided it was time for a change
Moved at my grandparents who live at countryside somewhere in the mountains not too far from the city
Everything goes well for a couple of days, my room ist huge never felt better in my life
I am easily irritable btw
My grandpa decides he d move in the room next to mine so that we could talk more

Im okay with that.
Biggest mistake i have ever done in my life.
See, he is partially deaf and i forgot about that aspect
The very next day i start to study at @8am and and a few minutes later the tv goes on to full retard and just blasts the windows and the whole house goes earthquake mode(not exagerating)
>whyme.jpg
Tried to ask him lower the volume multiple times, i just gave up after a while.
Time to find a different solution
I start to take into consideration going to the library and when i finally had the guts to do it i checked the program and it went like that:
Open monday-friday 9AM-7:30PM
>icanworkwiththat.jpg
Fast forward 4 days later
Made a card, brought my books
>letsdothis
For the first 5-6 months my grades started skyrocketing.
One day i notice something weird
A section of the lecture room has been cut off by a plank of cardboard
I look over it and see a bunch of tables with soda and snacks

I was thinking to myself "am i going to get free food for going to the library"
So i decide to ask about it and the woman says to me
"Im sorry to tell you this but for the next months the library will be really crowded because we dont get any funds and we will start letting people promote their stuff in the library like books etc"
I legit hold a mariana trench amount of tears from spilling onto the floor.(this happened at the end of winter)
Ffw start of the summer
i go to the library again in hopes that the no-fund period has ended.
I notice a big announcement on the door saying that the library would be closed from 3 june to 9 july bcs they wanted to make an extra room for more people
>okay
ffw 9 july
i feel my heart drop when i find pic related in the first post

>>9873505

Non-math majors rarely ask me about math. I usually always ask them about their stuff. So it's maybe more often them feeling like they are dumbing stuff down to me. If we talk about math, they usually take initiative, introduce some stuff they know about, and they usually are decent or even more knowledgeable than me at particular area. I might introduce new math to them, trying to adjust to their perceived zone of proximal development. It still exciting from my perspective, since this often forces me to make new abstractions which makes it exciting for me as well.

Even if you"get in" whether it's some shitty school or ivy league, you still have to pass boards to gain a practicing license. I'm sure if 500 franchised, private chain institutes opened up and very few people were becoming practicing physicians, then they would get kickback and no one would want to attend.

It's a weird cycle. Also, you can't just open up a medical school like a business. There are a lot of admin hoops to jump through and accreditations, and you have to hire a lot of faculty and pay all those faculty, which is going to take way more money to start teaching than your average CC instructor. It's tough work and extremely expensive.

he doesn't actually know anything, his entire persona is modeled after tony stark in order to convince the world america isn't headed for a colossal economic collapse (and chinese eclipse) like they did to the ussr in the late 80s.

he does cocaine and hangs out with models and actresses. he comes from a rich family and was given a massive head start in life (dot com bubble positioned a lot of people to succeed - one good example is the current australian prime minister who turned 500k into 50 million months before the crash and then later settled with Goldman Sachs for another 80 million, and is now worth over 200, or bezos who survived a takeover shock to his young company with the help of some wall street investment banks and is now worth billions).

whether they got lucky or they had some inside information due to connections it's very hard to say, economic forensics on multiple decade long cold cases is hardly possible, especially when access to privileged information is highly restricted.

I fucking hate working for a government contractor. Yes 7 people should look over a document change, it's completely necessary, gotta have peer review! I love having to charge specific time codes for each individual task, and not just the project, not completely fuckin pointless. Yes I love having a manager who makes $110k to sign off on time cards.

Question: What happens when we reach the pinnacle of human otpimization by merging with machines and using regenerative health technology to eliminate every single disease, to enhance muscles without weight lifting, to be healthy and thin without exercise or good diet, to live forever, to enhance IQ to genius level for anyone...

In short, what will happen to humans once we reach the point where everything is easilly attained without 0 effort, what do we do then? Since all humans derive meaning and happiness from struggle and accomplishment.

Any thought experiments out there or any sci-fi that deals with this? Also, how far away are we?

One thing shouldn't be forgotten, an AI is not human, it may be sentient, but it will not have our evolutionary incoded selfless behavior.
An autosentient being is a being that has a total awareness of its own being, it has no unconsciousness, it has complete consciouscness.
It can not feel love, but it knows and understands love.

The theories and ideas they are exploring here is not in the realm of the empirical, but of a future science as extra dimensions, infinite energy etc. It's worth a read.

Regarding the "mind making" ideas, I don't think its like a power that can move objects or make things happen just by thought, but by changing the individual's conscious processes to help the individual achieve his aims. its more esoteric and mysterious than our current, worm's eye view understanding of the universe.
