(Story) – ‘..the miracle of living’ – Creation

In this world we’re just beginning
To understand the miracle of living
Baby, I was afraid before
But I’m not afraid anymore

Belinda Carlisle – Heaven Is a Place on Earth

Cyc, could you run some simulation concerning the atom lasers?

Cyc; ‘Yes Sir.’

‘Alright, now, lets see: one plastic duck, one chocolate bar, one pair of socks, diapers, milk, honey, and… lets see. Uhm a toothbrush.’

It seemed to go well, except.

‘Cyc, that’s not a toothbrush but a toilet brush, that’s for something else, it’s way to big for a human mouth.’

And there came the toothbrush. ‘Rrright.’

Fabricating everything with atoms at home, or anywhere else.

‘Cyc, are we on schedule concerning the development of the creator unit? That unit that’s able to create lots of material stuff?’

Cyc; ‘On schedule Sir, on schedule.’

‘I want one in every home on this planet.’

Cyc; ‘Yes Sir.’

Mmm, very cheap energy, a lot of computing power, atom lasers.

But when are able to create anything; ‘Cyc, how do we recycle all this stuff back to atoms?’

You’re the voice, try and understand it
Make a noise and make it clear
Oh-wo-wo-wo, oh-wo-wo-wo
We’re not gonna sit in silence
We’re not gonna live with fear

John Farnham – You’re The Voice

“..in fact extremely simple underlying rules – that might for example potentially be implemented directly at the level of atoms – are often all that is needed.”

“And indeed one of the things that emerges from this book is that traditional engineering has actually considered only a tiny and quite unrepresentative fraction of all the kinds of systems and processes that are in principle possible.”

“..it seems likely that a system could be set up in which just one or a few atoms would correspond to a cell in a system like a cellular automaton. And one thing this would mean is that doing computations would then translate almost directly into building actual physical structures out of atoms.”
