I'm surprised BBC future would publish such a conservative position. If you have such a retrograde view, just don't accept receiving hybrid organs when you need one. Let those who want to live be able to.

I'm just curious why he doesn't believe sleep helps in memory consolidation when plenty of cognitve research has suggested that individuals perform more effectively on cognitive tasks and have better recollection after REM sleep...
02/21/2017 at 15:47
It is no mystery as to why humans need sleep lol. We need it because we're human, not robots. When people do not get enough sleep, esecially on a regular basis, they pretty much behave as if they are intoxicated. The effects of sleep deprivation and being intoxicated are very similar. No one who gets steady inadequate sleep is as alert or productive as they believe they are. No confusion, pretty straightforward.

I really expect more from BBC - this article is all thinking a and wonderings of a particular man, who did a study on people that didn't live even half as long as we do now, and no hint of evidence for anything. Why was this even published

Robots...no....cylon like cybernetic humans...most likely. I think modified humans or mechasapiens are the next evolution for us. Robots will be given vast chores to do. But I think they will see us as the link between mortality and biological immortality. Even robots break down. Biological robots will be the medium that gets us past the robotic revolution.

They did not speak of anti-vaxxers, maybe because it hits too close to home for some BBC readers? And flat earthers. True bottom up driven agnotology since there is no governing organization funding it.
The examples that were mentioned (tobacco, fossil fuels) are examples of insidious marketing, an age old concept that needs no new term.

"Consider climate change as an example. “The fight is not just over the existence of climate change, it’s over whether God has created the Earth for us to exploit, whether government has the right to regulate industry, whether environmentalists should be empowered, and so on. It’s not just about the facts, it’s about what is imagined to flow from and into such facts,” says Proctor."

"People who are consistently late are incredibly optimistic.
We’re the type who thinks the play won’t actually start until 7.08, or that we definitely have time to stop for a coffee and make the train. We believe we can walk or drive faster than GoogleMaps tells us—and while that may be true, we also overestimate just how fast our legs can spin in their hip sockets."

There are times when punctuality matters and other times it doesn't, at the end of the day the function of a company is to produce a product or service society values and will part with money to obtain. Sometimes punctuality is important but often creativity or productivity far outweigh punctuality. Yet because there is no clock counting creativity and productivity is often so difficult to measure we see punctuality as some sort of a substitute for doing a good job but it often isn't.

I always had the feeling that music plays a significant role in social conditioning and shaping opinions. It primes the brain to be more malleable and compliant to subliminal suggestions. And it's everywhere, from ISIS' propaganda videos to "donate-me-your-money" congregations' songs,
Even in general entertainment media. Movies with and without ambient music makes a huge difference in the appreciation of the story's tone.

You have got to be kidding... Now these people have come to a point of accepting the disaster and radioactive leak in Japan as OK... Now we can move on and just bury the problem... It has already been proven through studies in Oregon the types of fungus will resolve the damaging effects of many of the dangerous substances created by man and yet they continue to struggle for funding because we all are not paying attention to what is important here... I SAY NO!!!
