I'd love to hibernate for a few millennia until the human race learns how to live together in peace.

Then it turns out several generations of genetic and sociological shifts in tandem were required... and the obsolete "tainted" humans in hibernation had to be "peacefully euthanized".

I was thinking, more like by the genetic super babies. When they grow up, and take over the world, thanks to their enhanced physiology and brain power.

Read on stories on people who where 15 years + in prison without much exposure to the free world. What was there experience coming out was, even something as simple as most of our daily digital lives can be hard.

Now X1000 , your closed relatives are some great x10 grand kids and you have no idea wtf is going on

You are likely not being able to live in these Utopia. Cause pretty much everyone is in need of Drama/People talk and debate/conflict. The end of the capitalism and Competition in every sector of the life.

A world of real peace is where these zero way for each individual to be in anykind of interaction with each other in short.

So in fact if hat kind of stuff happen, One of the main aspect of the humanity is gone so humanity dont exist anymore.

being Brain-chipsed for removing our Egos and primate instincts of revenge and our culture of justice. Borg are not human.

A multi year lockdown is not called a hibernation :p

This article is interesting but it serves no functional use in its given state in humans.

The methodology really impressed me. I have been out of the field for around 10 years now and seeing it develop this much made me sad I left sciences.

Edited google autocorrect issues....

Anything from RA work to pharma industry.

Honestly, if they are looking for human volunteers, I would be willing to hibernate for an indefinite amount of time, and would ask to be reanimated when science and technology have advanced to the point of helping me treat and cure my unusual health issue.

It's pretty clear from the paper that the monkeys felt cold. Doesn't sound like a fun trip.

Retina coding accepted, Warden William Smithers. Be well.


seksismart t1_j1izbsq wrote

Primates, inmates... When it comes to animal testing it's all the same.


shipsAreWeird123 t1_j1m1tkb wrote

To what end?

Hibernate through your prison sentence and then come back when people have forgotten?


SergiuBru t1_j1mjz15 wrote

Less maintenance for the system, the sentence goes by quickly for the inmate. At the end it will feel like years lost from their lives. More reason to be a better citizen.

Another step closer to idiocracy.

If you were making a space trip, would you rather sleep for 5 years and lose that time of your life? Or stay awake and half to fight off the boredom of being trapped in a small canister for that long.


anlumo t1_j1kt7cm wrote

It’s a matter of not needing to carry the food for that time as well. Humans eat a lot when they’re awake.


saintpetejackboy t1_j1kusv7 wrote

I think there are other problems with stasis - we aren't really built to do that. The cognitive process during that time would need to be thoroughly investigated - are you just in some long dream? Do you cycle in and out of dreams? Each person might react different and extending the period may introduce additional physiological and psychological concerns.

Based on what we typically see with comas, I'd estimate we could do something like 5 years kind of safely - but beyond that, probably pushing insanity or coming back as what is essentially an invalid.
