Oh, look... Another flu season is upon us and we still don't have the universal flu vaccine that has been tantalizingly just out of reach since... forever. But, don't worry, the scientists say that it'll be available in "a couple more years," which is what they've been saying for the past 40 or so years.

So, 4chan, when do you think we'll actually get to see this wonder vaccine, if we ever get to see it?

How did we evolve to be able to think about abstract meta-concepts and the inner workings of the mind?

We didn't. The inner workings of the mind are complex and the nearest realistic model we have for it is some big matrices multiplying together, or some big weighted graphs shifting weights

We evolved over a very very long time in a circumstance called "total war" where anything other than your small group was either food or an enemy, and both the food and the predators got smarter everyday, in a constant terrifying balance, where it was a race to not die. And when the food dried up, your own people would turn on you.
So take the total war away and our supercomputer minds can focus on other things.

Why aren't we segregating smart and potentially smart, peace-loving people from the rest of the dumb masses?
I live near a common riot area, in a country that's experiencing large scale riots right now, and it's fucking killing me.

It's evident that these people (and human masses in general) are dumb inconsiderate unappreciative clothed apes who enjoy things they do not deserve and don't begin to understand how they work.
All of humanity's scientific and technological achievements come from a very tiny percent of people and dedicated groups.
The fact these morons outnumber me and have greater say on mob rule democracy, frightens me. Because in the minds of these animals, destroying everything around me in my city is perceived as good and they actually enjoy it, just look at the smiles of these morons.

Let's start with a basic axiom, a line segment is made of unicorns. Now I can build all sorts of unicorn structures that would be logically sound. In a universe that is made of only information, why is this not possible? Every kind of logic should technically exist albeit locally in the order of the size of observable universe so as to make it seem "normal" and "physical" to sentient beings residing in it.

If no logical system is ever consistent and complete, then logic has a sever blindspot in the analysis of the true nature of reality.

It's a phenomenon called band saturation. Learn more here

Once CO2 is high enough, there's diminishing effect on its warming effect. Most of earth's history CO2 is beyond 1000 ppm, which means that the absorption band is always saturated and earth's temperature is controlled by factors other than CO2.

However, since the quarternary, around 3 million years ago, and especially the last 800ky when we have ice core records CO2 have been in goldilocks zone where it is low enough to not have its absorption band saturated but high enough to have control on the climate

Harvest them from the waste water produced by your washing machine.

At that point, if you want only the micro plastics, you would filter it and add them to dionized water of the same proportion to what you harvested.

Not only this but even if you are feeding it pure shit your body adapts to numb itself to pure shit. Your body essentially goes "welp if what I'm stuck with, I better re-adjust my expectations".

... And I've experienced it first hand. I used to eat like utter shit and felt fine. One day suddenly went 100% healthy, had massive withdrawals but afterwards felt amazing, had very clear objective improvements. Decided to have a cheat day and after just a small amount of junk food my stomach went nuts. In the past my body was just numb to crap in my stomach but once I had got healthy, my body no longer put up with that shit.

The fact that facebook is anywhere near worth half a trillion dollars while the best cancer company is worth a couple billion suggests the issue isnt with technology but with humanity.

1) the future will be in cosmetic surgery being insurance funded and the tech side will be AI assisted surgeries that will help the surgeon know exactly what and where needs to be cut, filled,stuffed to get a certain look with swelling taken into analysis.

2) robotic military drones, expect police helicopters to be phased out for permanent in the air gliding drones
expect to cops to use a small drones to detach from their vehicles to intercept your cars and shut it down (remotely) for speeding or some other shit.

3)sex bots, (this will be a trillion dollar industry)

4) designers babies i do agree on, how much money would parent pay to have a chad 6'6" child with 200 iq with deep blue eyes and the athleticism of a horse.

5) cultural shifts in what we see as the norm, we are already seeing it with the tranny shit, imagine people replacing their entire bodies, sci fi thinks people will continue to go cyberpunk humanoid but why would they? you could have someone say they want their entire skin to be a liquidish gold with black eyes.

6) expect food bars to be more of a thing and meat to become less of thing in certain parts of the world.

Ya from a couple studies I have read 1/3 of people naturally are shitty drivers from terrible spatial reasoning the other 1/3 doesn't have the emotional stability or on drugs. The last 1/3 are trying to survive from the other idiots.
I can see insurance companies pushing it because then they will never have to pay money out with reduced crashes.

People don't like driving anyway especially in a city, then the fact you can party as much as you want and sit in the back seat all comfy.

You underestimate the level of peoples laziness and urge for convenience. Self driving cars are going to be huge, people just traded their privacy for a smart phone in just this past decade.

In a related note restaurants a hundred years ago was considered a rich persons thing to go to, they only ever became a thing because on a chefs off days the rich person would just go pickup food from a servant ran "eaterys" with multiple chefs always available.

Normies noticed and didn't care they had to spend a weeks pay to not have to cook and have a professional to cook a much better meal then they could ever make. 100 years later here we are with world wide obesity.
