ActivistPost – Nicholas West – Biotech Seeking Ways To Make People Suffer Eternally – 15 March 2014

Logo_activistpost-comIf there is any question left about the God complex with which some scientists are afflicted, it is answered with this latest news. England’s prestigious Oxford University has been the site of ongoing research into life extension technology using various methods, one of which includes a drug that can distort a person’s sense of time in order to literally create a feeling of eternal damnation.

A recent article discussing the work of Dr. Rebecca Roache opens with one line: “Sentencing a criminal to 1,000 years in an artificial hell may one day become a reality.” And, according to researchers, that day could be quite soon.

ActivistPost – Nicholas West – Facebook Interested In Solar Drones For Global Internet – 5 March 2014

Logo_activistpost-comEven as the debate intensifies over the scope of drone warfare and surveillance, significant upgrades continue and the drone industry booms. The trend is toward a future of autonomous fleets of large-scale war fighters combined with increasing miniaturization that will make drone tech part of the fabric of our everyday lives.

The latest developments focus on ways to not only get these new drone models aloft via remote control, or through their own autonomous decisions, but how to keep them there for as long as possible – perhaps even permanently – by harvesting power from the environment.

ActivistPost – Nicholas West – Robo Raven : New 3D-Printed Drone Mimics Nature – 17 May 2013

Raven-Spirit-Meaning(Lucas : picture of a real raven in flight, no drone.)

The march toward developing drones that mimic nature continues unabated. Robobee has received a lot of attention lately for taking flight as a possible replacement pollinator for the declining natural bee population, while also offering the dual-use swarm surveillance and weapons’ capabilities sought after by the military.
