>and maths
imagine getting a phd in writing numbers lmao. why do mathers keep trying to piggyback off of physics? because they are goofy weirdos who can't do anything in the real world. biology, geology, or any empirical is certainly more difficult than a "science" that doesn't even require you to interface with your surroundings. even computer science is harder than math because as theoretical as computer science is, you generally have to know how to program a device of some kind.

virtually all of the famous scientists were physicists, chemists, or biologists. (They may also have done some math, like newton, but if they are remembered for their physics). The only street-famous mathematicians are like, who? Euclid? Go back to your containment department, mathy.

I'm a dropout. I studied economics. It sucked. So I started an apprenticeship as a carpenter. Just have to create my journeyman's piece and then I'm a journeyman. One of the best decisions in my life, ever. The job is great. A large part of the job is decision making and problem solving. I love it. The times of garbage pay and cunt gaffers and foremen is over as well. The boomers with their small and medium sized trade businesses who treat their apprentices like shit are finished soon. They find no successors and those businesses die out, in large numbers. At the same time, zoomers and millenials don't like to do a trade job. This means that, in a few years, there are only a few trade businesses left and those who are left will be able to make some juicy price increases.
When I'm done with my apprenticeship, I hope I can start an engineering degree for wood engineering or something like that.

I extracted some key points from a paper on the feasibility of mind uploading by one of the leading neuro-engineers whose research objective is the implementation of whole brain emulation (WBE). I have an amateur interest in the subject and I am thinking of popularizing some of the work, arguments, and counter-arguments in this field and its goals.
Any anons interested in this?

The objective is to make individual human minds independent of a single (biological) substrate (Koene 2011).

> Iterative improvements in four main areas to achieve WBE
structural scanning (connectomics) - high-res microscopy carried out by taking electron microscope images of successive ultrathin layers of brain tissue.
functional recording
a.biological tools that employ DNA amplification to write events onto a molecular “ticker-tape” (Kording 2011).
b.establishing the equivalent of an electronic synaptic network based on micron-scale wireless neural interfaces. (Seo et al. 2013)
c. a probe the size of a red blood cell can include operational circuitry, infrared power delivery and communications, and an antenna for passive communications

>Is a computer too deterministic to house a mind?
If we say that neurons and other parts of the physiology are not deterministic and therefore not like computer programs then that is true for anything built in the real world, such as transistors, which also do not operate in a totally deterministic and predictable manner. (subject to the whims of variability in material and effects from surrounding environmental noise)

Emulation is a concrete approach to the transition from a biological brain to implementation in another substrate and it is reasonable to assume that the result will be a functioning mind with general intelligence.

Thanks for the Info. The as there been any good new papers that look into how the technology has evolved in to the direction of it progressing towards possibility?
That sounds awesome anon. But how would that interact with you. Does the possibility of posterior (or external) control change the way you dream? Would dreams turn more lucid because you had more of a motivation towards it? I felt that one big problem of lucid dreaming is the inability to continue where you left the last time, but I see rewatching your dreams as a factor, that could likely help to stimulate something like a campaign mode dream season. What would happen if you exchange your dream clips and end up in a DnD like scenario, where you know about other players dream and build them into your own dream world?
I see a lot of possibilities and a lot of potential fallout in you dream. Still, it's awesome.

Real Question. If I wanted take part in or to help the research with the scanning development what would be the best thing to get into that field. I fell for the cs+bio meme degree. Guess I'm trying to select a master or graduate school atm, but not really sure what to use to select/find them.

How dangerous is it really to not remove an infected tooth that has no pain and no abscess? I took my son to the dentist to have 2 teeth removed yesterday and it was an actual nightmare. He was screaming and crying and I almost stopped the doctor. Now they say he needs more baby teeth extracted but they are not hurting him and they have no abscesses. If I choose to just wait until the teeth fall out naturally in a few years is it very dangerous and risking sepsis? The main problem is I cannot afford the dentist who puts my child to sleep. I can only afford the cheapest dentist with no laughing gas. But I cannot put him through that again. It was torture. It fucked me up. I seriously feel ptsd symptoms from watching them torture my son.

>If I choose to just wait until the teeth fall out naturally in a few years is it very dangerous and risking sepsis?
Yes, it is dangerous and you are taking a risk. You might be fine and the infection doesn't progress to becoming an abscess or developing sepsis, and then the teeth fall out naturally.

Or at any point in the next few years the infection might reach the point of becoming an abscess. Once that happens, the tooth falling out won't make the problem go away and you're looking at a potentially even more expensive course of medical treatment to fix it.

And worst case scenario, it becomes septic. You'll initially think he's got a bad cold or the flu, but by time you realise it's something worse it'll be too late as he goes into septic shock. The fact that you're poor means you probably wouldn't want to risk the expense of seeing a doctor for any sort of illness until it becomes severe, which is something you can't risk with sepsis. You want some depressing reading, go look up the survival rates for sepsis.

So yeah. You can take that risk with your son's life if you want. Put him through a bit of suffering now for peace of mind in the long term, or just take a chance knowing you could potentially kill him. Your call, I just hope you can live with it.

One or two kids died a year from abscesses, plus it’s your fucking kid.

Shots are a part of life dude and your kid has to learn to take them like a man. And he has to learn to brush his teeth.

Go on the dark web and get some ketamine and Xanax and put him out yourself (figure out dosing first by testing them on yourself and extrapolating accordingly for weight)

What is a fulfilling and prospective field/carrer?

I thought being compsci major and being a programmer making nice money is the end goal, but lately now that I'm living the dream and made enough money from markets, I'm really feeling a huge void. The things I'm working on aren't going to change anyone's life, most jobs are equally meaningless anyway and I want to start studying again and go somewhere where I can make a difference now that I have the money to live freely for next 30 years.

Any ideas? I feel like medicine is something that would make me happy, helping people, but it also has to do with programming/math that will capture my mind and make me work hard for next 15 years at least with a good goal and purpose in life.

Also it doesn't have to do with medicine, just give me some tips.

Work for others, not just for yourself. Doesn't necessarily have to be in your career, just do something. Maybe wife someone up, maybe do some charity work, maybe pursue medicine if you're completely determined to do that.

God goes back to school and asks, "Why are you still here? Why do you still exist? What counter-argument could you possibly have and why would you advertise or broadcast it to the rest of the fucking world at the drop of a hat?"

What's 4chan's reply?

As a teacher I'd probably defend against God with, "I call my students the firewall of rejection." And then let my students defeat God instantly, and then gang-bang! Yaaaay!
