10,000 years ago people were more concerned about surviving for one more day than whether or not people would remember them thousands of years later.

Nowadays with the huge flow of information and speed with which it travels worldwide, it's far more feasible to have your name and deeds recorded and remembered for a much longer time in the future.

>> No.15061579

As I said, you can't know whether a legacy will last 10,000 years. It might fall short, it might stick with humanity (or whatever humanity becomes) until the end.

>implying we even know humanity itself will last 10,000 or 100,000 years.

>> No.15061628

There is, however, also much more information around. Information yours is likely to be lost in. I think the best time for getting immortalized is over. Newton, Euler, Lagrange, Planck, Bohr, Einstein - I think these are names that won't be forgotten for a long time. But these days you need large teams to make significant discoveries, so individuals are more likely to be drowned in the mass of other individuals, so to speak.
And yes, I think science is the best way to leave a lasting legacy, because science doesn't work without older science.

>> No.15061629

Considering that we have no idea what's going to happen to us even in the next 50 years, there's no way to know. Unless you take "leaving a lasting legacy" to just mean "leaving a lasting change/effect," in which case blowing up the Moon or something would still be valid, even if humanity died out or forgot about it.

>> No.15061634

Actually it is true. There is a 5/1000 chance that you are related to djenghis Khan.

Look if you want you name to forever be remember for 10,000 years then you have to murder millions but can just be anything silly like that you gotta take the Hitler approch.
Turn it into a machine, a machine that is never turned off till you say so (lol yeah right) or your taken out and someone with a soul will but the damage is done already. In fact, fuck Hitler. He's only remembered as a footnote next to you... you killed billions. Men, women, children, black, white, yellow, blue, it doesn't matter who they all much march into the machine. This machine could do anything for you.
Build materials for the war effort (lol try doing all this in peace time), feed the masses (Soilent Green, anyone?), disturbing medical experiments that every scientist, in fact if you don't surround yourself with some of the sickest minds of your generation your playing softball boy you need to get your act together.
Do this and they will write who libraries about you, your name will but utter as with discontent and discus, no child will carry your name anymore, but in the end they will remember you.. they have too for fear of repeating the same mistakes, thou little do they know it'll happen all over again no matter what.

I have a question on the other side of the coin:

You have two parents. Your parents have four parents. Their parents have eight parents, et cetera. The number of your ancestors in any given generation starting with you 'n' is 2^(n-1)
Let's give a standard generation 20 years. That's five generations per century.
By this logic, twenty six genarations earlier, in fifteenth cetury, just when people started move out of europe, more than three billions people lived in europe. Every generation, the amount doubles and only get worse.
