This is some Black Mirror type stuff.

The world’s top policymakers and engineers all got together at the Web Summit in Lisbon to talk about the future because that’s what they do. And two things that they said really stood out. Those two things? How different our brains and our porn will be in the very near future.

According to these nerds, porn will be more intimate and romantic thanks to virtual reality. BaDoink VR director and producer Dinorah Hernandez says the current demands for the company are for “more intimacy,” as well as education/entertainment classes for people to become better lovers.

“People are asking for more romance, closeness, more talking. This is something you’ll find in a real relationship but not everyone in the world will have access to that kind of relationship,” Hernandez said. “To be able to have an experience with another woman could give them something that maybe the real world can’t.”

And what about our brains in the future? Well according to Kernel founder Bryan Johnson, he predicts within 15 to 20 years humans will have the ability to hack their own brains and unlock superpowers. Superpowers like incredible memories, computing abilities and transmit brain-to-brain thoughts.

He’s developing chips that can be inserted to map neural pathways and expects these tools will be “robust” enough for humans to achieve any scenario they can think of in their feeble, unmodified heads.

“For example, could I have a perfect memory? Could I delete my memories? Could I increase my rate of learning? Could I have brain to brain communication?” Johnson said. “Imagine a scenario where I say: ‘I want to know what it’s like to be a cowboy in the American West in the 1800s,’ and someone creates that experience mentally. I’m able to take that and purchase that from that person and experience that.”

Blue Abyss operations director Simon Evetts, who is working to unlock the secrets of the world’s oceans and study the effect of extreme environments on the human body, said there may even be a “Homo Oceanis” that lived underwater if we can work out how to transplant genes from other species.

“Can we somehow work out how dolphins and seals hold their breath for so long and maybe ourselves do that?” Evetts said. “Are we going to try and internalize those things and end up with large thoracic cavities because we’ve got internal gill sets?”

Well, what I understand from all of this is that sooner or later a SkyNet-type company will destroy us all.
