  1. Strange. We can not cope with overpopulation, waste management, global warming, to name a few, and we want to spread human grains of life over our galaxy, or create worm holes to travel through the space. This is sheer madness. Let us do things which have an incling to improve life in big cities.

  2. Uh uh…nerds like this weido have doomed mankind,,,ai is hear growing and will kill us all…wankers keep pushing teck till its out of controll,, our only hope….turn off the internet kill all nerds ,nuke all commies,,,and live under the sea,,,

  3. When you're a mad genius like Ray Kurzweil, you can just walk into a public park or anyone's backyard and start throwing expensive landscaping rocks and furniture into a lake or pool. That's just how it is.

  4. I seriously doubt this is possible. If it were possible, I would think an alien race has already reached the singularity and would have already converted the universe into computronium. Which would include our planet. Unless we are the only intelligence in the universe.

  5. A teeter-totter computes. Push down on the input and the output goes up. On the other hand a plant is conscious meaning it takes inputs information and acts. The rock stores information if one scratches it for example.

  6. The rock/ stone is good example of computronium. But I also think that computing may require energy and result will be proportional to energy available. This way core of the star could serve even better as computronium with plenty of energy flow available. We could extend even thesis to the point that energy generating during nuclear reaction/ equal mass energy / may be at same time responsible or result of computation processed. During anihilation max amount of energy is released, but we still don't know what / if any/ computation process is going on there….

  7. human beings wanting to propogate and spread their intelligence to rest of the universe tells us the very egotistical nature of human intelligence, which itself will ALWAYS result in ignorance and the lack of real intelligence

  8. Introducing… the new iRock… from Apple… now with 4.7GHz of rockputational computronium speeds and we've added a Celery Stalk GPU for even better graphics. iRock from Apple – ten thousand billion billion billion bits of sand in your pocket.
