Solar House

Walk up to this house, and you might think it was just like all the others on the street. But take a peek in the backyard and basement, and you'll see that it's bristling with high technology. The $350,000 house, located between Madison and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, creates so much electricity that its owner receives a check from the power company each month.

MInd Control Device

this is only "public sector" so i can only imagine what goes on in the covert world.
this is a wacky demonstration.

Actual demonstration of the device begins at around 10:35.

Tan Le, co-founder and president of Emotiv Systems, gives a live demo of a mind control device that uses a person's thoughts to input computer commands.

Fractal Mandelbrot set/ Infinity

Benoit Mandelbrot Fractal Art Contest 2007
In mathematics, the Mandelbrot set, named after Benoît Mandelbrot, is a set of points in the complex plane, the boundary of which forms a fractal. Mathematically, the Mandelbrot set can be defined as the set of complex values of c for which the orbit of 0 under iteration of the complex quadratic polynomial zn+1 = zn2 + c remains bounded.[1] That is, a complex number, c, is in the Mandelbrot set if, when starting with z0=0 and applying the iteration repeatedly, the absolute value of zn never exceeds a certain number (that number depends on c) however large n gets.
For example, letting c = 1 gives the sequence 0, 1, 2, 5, 26,…, which tends to infinity. As this sequence is unbounded, 1 is not an element of the Mandelbrot set.
On the other hand, c = i (where i is the square root of -1) gives the sequence 0, i, (−1 + i), −i, (−1 + i), −i…, which is bounded, and so i belongs to the Mandelbrot set.
When computed and graphed on the complex plane, the Mandelbrot Set is seen to have an elaborate boundary, which does not simplify at any given magnification. This qualifies the boundary as a fractal.

The Mandelbrot set has become popular outside mathematics both for its aesthetic appeal and for being a complicated structure arising from a simple definition. Benoît Mandelbrot and others worked hard to communicate this area of mathematics to the public.


Any theory of the universe has to address the growing list of new observations

At the least it should include a mechanism with the subtlety to make spatial fractals and the speed and strength to structure the vast universe we see.

Uniquely electromagnetic energy and its resultant force has these and other attributes.

It provides a compelling explanation for the flatness of structures, from atoms to galaxy walls.

The gathering of matter by Z-pinch nicely explains voids.

The ability to store energy in magnetic fields and to bring about nuclear fusion is powerful stuff.

Many of the intractable problems which beset cosmology look amenable to an electronic approach especially considering the various modes and frequencies of oscillation.

The universe appears to be fractal, cyclic and self- regenerating. Implied is that it is eternal and infinite.

heres a good example of the fractal nature of "infinity"

Substituting Human Contact

Funktionide Part II from eltopo on Vimeo.

Yet more evidence of technology leading us into disturbing alienated bizarre territory. this is straight out of a cronenberg movie, very gross.

German designer Stefan Ulrich says his Funktionide—a white blob that changes shape thanks to artificial muscle technology—can "relieve loneliness." OK, Stefan, let's say I can get pass the creepiness of that video. Now, where are the breasts?

Based on EAP-technology "Funktionide" is a concept for an emotional robot that substitutes human contact. In a future where technology will play a huge part in our lifes it is very likely that some day it will shift from satisfiying our basic funtional needs to include our emotional needs as well.
How will this future be? How do we want it to be? Will it affect our human interactions if we start to fall in love with machines? Will the machines fall in love with us?
