  1. Welp, on the very day I was notified that TTI is back up and running, I found the below when searching for an audio delay unit for my upcoming livestream music performance. It must be a sign! Also - is Cosmo still around or is it all on Paula's back now? Incidentally, you're all invited to watch/ listen to some solo variety music this Thursday the 11th at 7:00 pm Eastern Time. Or if you miss it, you can travel back in time by viewing the captured video :D No facebook account required! Event link - https://www.facebook.com/events/2470252956556214/ Stream will be on this page - https://www.
  2. Wow, a blast from the past! Thanks for your work. You should see the notification emails I'm getting. The font size is as massive as a black hole!!
  3. Interesting thoughts, and point well taken. At the same time, there is more to life than intelligence (which I just misspelled at first, lol). Think of how important you could be if you chose to take the risk of revealing yourself as a time traveler. Think of the exhilaration (also spell-checked) of discovering the future! A bit of devil's advocate work there, as it would certainly be a double-edged sword at best.
  4. Totally agreed on the emergency preparedness! Regard of what I think the chances of a particular disaster are, there is no way of knowing what might happen or when. Also - I certainly assumed all your images were legal! I has just seen the note on your page where you purchased rights to an image, so I thought I'd mention a potential free source. Cool to know that NASA permits free use with credit!
  5. Gpa, I'm confused as to why you brought government into the conversation, being that it was neither mentioned in the original post nor the articles. I am also at a loss as to where the quoted text in the last line of your post comes from. Interesting articles, Paula! Your style and presentation make for a nice read. I like the way you tied the various pieces of information together. I never knew about the parallels of the Titor story to "Alas, Babylon" - I hope to read the novel some time! In the meantime, while I would really like to be better prepared for the possibility of emergencies an
  6. Interesting thought, Paula. What are the ethics of deciding sentience? Where do we draw the line? Is a Venus Flytrap sentient? Then again, what difference does it make if we do make a judgement? Perhaps it plays into the rights of the "being". Wasn't this a theme in Battlestar Galactica? Never watched too much of it. I know it is a big theme in the new fembot movie that's out now.
  7. Science and Religion. The existence of God. These are very interesting topics to me. It seems so easy, so very easy for online discussions on the topic to spring up, seemingly out of nowhere. I've read so many of these discussions - both formal and informal, written by laymen, scholars, and those in-between. I always get drawn into the topic and while on one hand I want to kick myself after reading the same debate yet again, I feel that I hopefully glean just a little bit more understanding of various viewpoints each time. And while I am dismayed by the tone taken at times in this thread by my

  9. Darby, I'm curious. Judas described traveling to a very distant future Earth where one would be unknown and would encounter only unfamiliar persons and surroundings. While time dilation is certainly very real and had to be accounted for practically with orbiting satellites and such, I find it difficult to imagine our current technologies affording us the capacity to return to an Earth in the distant future, practicality and affordability notwithstanding. Between problems of fuel, life support systems, and the whole slowing down from near-light-speed/ re-entry process, I'm just having a hard ti
  10. An insightful and balanced approach! Nice theory.
  11. Actually, I see you are Greek, Ninja, so efarishto or however you say it! Sorry!
