Asteroid Deflection Shield

Today we discuss broad assortment of subjects from our ice age ancestors survival tactics to our journey into space and what it might be like to observe the space we travel through. Does the Genius hold Owen’s feet to the fire or does Owen cause the Genius to hand in his genius card. Who comes out with the greatest insight into the human experience and holds his finger best on the pulse of the future.

The little hole in the wall and how it may change the way we educate our children.

These Dogs love a good pair of Genes

Owen and The Genius seek out and explore genetic engineering and decoding of the human genome to decide if we are ready for venturing into the great frontier of a genetically engineered society. How long will it be before we can cure the greatest diseases of our age and how far should we go to repair genetic abnormalities. What danger does unwrapping the genetic code portend. What privacy and security are we giving up in the name of personalized medicine.What are the new technologies on the way in to cure cancer, in all of its forms. could it be as easy and a warm light and gold?

One large private data base for all or genetic information or does that put to much power in too few hands?

How much of our genome does it take to identify you. What processes can we use to eliminate personally identifiable information and should we privatize the decoding and analysis of our individual genomes.

Is this going to be the next frontier of cancer treatments. The Genius thinks so and Owen agrees.

In this article we discuss the manner our brains can be manipulated for our benefit and open up previous unknown senses or restore sensation to lost physical abilities. Can we open up an age where no matter how you came into the world or what misfortune you have had an engineer and brain science specialist can give or restore a new way to interact with the universe.

OvsG Die Hard or Live Long

Owen and The Genius riff off on the manner in which science is looking into advancing the experience of living well into the twilight hours of your life. Owen is excited about the idea of medical immortality, and the face off on the moral and social ramifications of a population the ages and is healthy well into their nineties and the first century mark. Extending our productive life span may require nation states to alter their retirement plans for the elderly and even challenge the term elderly as far as when it will apply to individuals. How will humanity handle the challenges of an increasing aging society world-wide, with limited resources and negative environmental footprint. Will we be able to sustain 10 billion people with our current level of food production with increasing diminishing returns in regard to nutrient loss do to over farming. How will we earn our spurs and keep the little blue marble that we live on called space ship Earth habitable for humanity. After all what good is life extension if the world under our feet falls apart on our watch.

We talk about how science today is closer then most of the populous thinks to heal what ails us. From brain injury to cancer to genetically modified humans.

What can diamonds do for you future children. The Genius looks into In Vitro Fertilization and how diamonds may in fact be a girls best friend.

Will we be spraying our clothes and vehicles with glitter to power our devices and cars? Will Owen spray his tongue with glitter to power his keen intellect?

Why “News” may not all that it sets itself out to be. We discuss what makes researchers cringe when Fox News speaks.

5 The effect of science in how we age, now and in the future

Are we soon to be travelling into the realm of immortality. Should we seek to be immortal or should we be looking into maximizing our productive lifespan. Owen and the Genius square off on the future and hazards of genetic modified humans.

As I dare this bright light to outshine my intellect, I am reminded of a young boy’s passion to escape the horrible beatings my brother used to level upon me. I’m reminded of our famous fist battles that would ultimately end in my head smashing through something hard. Buried by so many years, those epic forays seem now like so much fog; just the reckless baying of troubled children. Where brothers once stood as foes, now we stand together, mostly.

 

All those years ago we learned to lock horns and wrestle and bite into the wee hours; but all things change. Today we strap on our convictions, staple our research to the biggest words in our vocabs, dawn our headset mics and dazzle our tongues over an hour of intense agreeing. Well sometimes we may differ, and when we do…it’s a bit more fun.Image
