For any of you who have watched ghost in the shell...what do you think is the possibility that our future will look anything like that? Do we have any good technology that comes even close lol? We know that if we do reach that level of technology Japan will have beaten us to it probably about 15 years before...but will we ever reach it?

If Japan beats us, we'll just buy it from them. Just like we do today...

If you can't see the point... get a new POV...

Well, it's the most plausible view of the future that we know of. Mostly likely it is the route that companies and the high-tech biz will go, provided someone doesn't sneeze over a nuclear detonation button anytime soon. ^^;

The principle of Ghost in the Shell is that scientists have found a way to map the human soul. Sorry kiddos, but we just got theough mapping the human genome. Defining the soul, like Ed and Al learned in Full Metal Alchemist, is practically if not always impossible.

I think it's more of like the human conciousness. rather than the human soul. The self-awareness that one is alive and human is what Major Kusanagi has that defines her as being human verses Batou or Tougasa, who have cybernetic implants.

I think the GitS2: MMI manga gives a better glance at world culture in this fictional world. They have realistic AI, and they have fully cyborgs. What they don't have is an understanding of what makes a real person vs. just an AI. There seem to be trade offs involved in the differences.

Another detail worth considering is the more advanced technologists are almost at the level of noble caste. They have technology the the world does not.

Will we get there? You will see how much the politics play in this version of the world. "What humans don't understand, they fear." They combat fear with regulation. If we ever get there it will be long in the coming. It takes time to sort through that type of red tape.

We begin and end in nothingness. Our darkness is confronting our ultimate nature, for nothing can come from nothing. We must sow the wind and reap the void, since the now is all we have. Together, we walk in darkness.

I think that future is possible but very far away. Its going to be another 50 years before we make a decent android and another 100 before we can start making cyborgs.

I think it will not be so far away because our technology goes on an exponential line...
But is true that we can't be sure that we're going to make it long enough...

Actually I think it will be more along the lines of Planetes than Ghost in the Shell, although some of the "cyberization" shown in the anime is in the early stages of development today (think prosthetics work). Will we ever see full body prosthetics, probably not. Power would be a real issue so unless everyone became a small nuclear plant or the machines needed to do this run off of millivolts then its not going to happen.

Do not interfere in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and good with ketchup.
