Humanity could benefit from a soft reset

Forums - General Discussion - Humanity could benefit from a soft reset

Ermm no offense, but this sounds pretty creepily authoritarian.. Like, dictatorial-type speak, let's just put it that way.

At the very least it's depressingly nihilistic and is the complete opposite of progress by any stretch of the imagination.

Most people are well-meaning in nature. Some are misguided or even have bad intentions but people don't get to decide that for others unless said others are actively negatively affecting society and/or other individuals. "Live and let live." "Don't tread on me," etc etc.. Two of my life's philosophies you might say..

And the children and babies only thing is pretty silly considering adults (particularly older adults) are the ones that carry the increased knowledge and wisdom of life experiences, prior history and prior generations.. THEY are what shape the future generations.

Yes. Is that a problem?

Those poor unicorns.  



So who is going to make sure the babies and children don't kill themselves?

You don’t understand.  It’s not about low numbers.

Without an adult population to maintain the world’s power grid, it takes only a few months for nuclear storage facilities to completely lose their ability to keep fuel rods submerged in refrigerated water.  The water boils over and they burst into flames.  Dozens of such facilities across the globe become nuclear disasters tens of thousands of times worse than Chernobyl, releasing a radioactive fog capable of tainting every water supply on the planet in less than a year.

That’s why I said ‘mass extinction’, and that’s an optimistic outlook considering the inability of children/babies to put out the radioactive fires.

Yeah again I didn't think too much about the practicality of this as it's not possible anyway. Let's just say that since we somehow have the technology to instantly delete all self-thinking capable humans at once, we surely have the technology to keep all the infrastructure running and raise the children without adults. Like I said earlier, robots!

first thing that happens is that when those kids all grow up to be 16 and what no they go to war against each other.

The reality is that human beings are inherently "bad". We just learn to be good.Ever seen a 2yr old break a glass cup and the go onto lie about it, or hide it? No one had to teach the child how to do that.

I believe everything we know comes from others, whether it's learning to be good or bad. In your 2yr old example, I'd say that's likely a result of the parent's overreacting whenever the child makes a mistake. If they yell at or hurt him, rather than understand the fact that he's 2, naturally he's gonna learn to do whatever it takes to avoid said punishment.

Ha no offense taken, I'm well aware this is crazy idea. It'd be weird if anyone actually liked it.

I do agree with those philosophy's, though probably just so I can feel better about myself. I don't actively go out of my way to hurt anyone, so I'd like to think that means I'm not a bad person, but I also don't help anyone thus not a good person either, so I take comfort in claiming to be neutral. However, part of me does feel that sitting by doing nothing while knowing better is bad and it's something we should be held accountable for.

Yes they are what has shaped the generations, that's why they need to go. :L



What would you consider a hard reset?



Hunting Season is done...

Who would you leave alive to teach the new generation the correct things? If they have to figure things out themselves it will end exactly the same. And if you leave teachers, there is a 100% chance that they will get murdered and it will end exactly the same.

The problems we have today aren't because humans aren't smart enough to figure things out. It's because humanity as a collective isn't smart enough, won't act smart in large groups. It is absolutely impossible to steer such a large number into the right direction. The bigger the number, the more people will focus only on their own in favor of the greater good. Just ask yourself: when have you last thought about the suffering of other humans without being reminded of it by others? When have you last acted selfless for people you don't even know? It's just not in the human nature to work like that. Humans can't possibly fathom global consequences, they can barely acknowledge consequences in their immediate surroundings, some not even that.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Just do nothing and let humanity carry on as it is, we'll eventually destroy ourselves and a new species will evolve and rule the Earth. I hope its sharks.

It's gonna be cephalopods. Praise your octopus overlords.

Well so much for science.  So how did those two animals of each (predators and prey) survive.  God must have fed them magic Mana and made sure none of them got sick. The gene pool would be completely fucked due to incest but you believe in Adam and Eve and that is pure incest.  Who do you think Seth the third son of Adam fucked his sisters or Eve?  I guess his sisters.  Then you have another incest story if Noah and his family were only survivers.  We are some pretty damn inbred humans if that was the case.

What about all the fresh water fish?  Surely most would die out if entire earth was flooded with salt water considering only a minority can handle fresh and salt water.  I don't think they came in twos to this made up ark.  What about the insects?  Where is the fossil records of this mass extinction?

Good thing you don't have to think too much about it and just believe.  Keep believing in your fairytales.

The way you say we would just lose all knowledge and be throw back to some centuries ago. And these young people would just grow to be even worse than us. Technology is what tamed human being.

Now if you were talking about killing all criminals and dumb people at once we would certainly reduce our carbon footprint.

That sounds reminiscent of the plot for the video game known as

Spoiler!
Horizon: Zero Dawn.

I mean, kinda. You'd get it if you played it. Don't you judge me!

Or the post apocalyptic portion of Cloud Atlas, which I can't help but wonder if some inspiration led to HZD.

If more people watched and understood movies like this, the world would be a much better place, not like it's that terrible overall in comparison, but everything could always be better. Always.

This also sounds kinda like the Georgia Guidestones.

  1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
  2. Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
  3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
  4. Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
  5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
  6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
  7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
  8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
  9. Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
  10. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.

Most of these 10 directions seem fine.
