Whatever Happened to The Neuroscience Party?

Back to American politics, where an update on the Neuroscience Party brings us the unfortunate news that my candidacy for public office has gone nowhere. The Superhappy Evolution and Neuroscience Party has failed to qualify as an official party. Sadly, it is no longer even listed as attempting to qualify in the state of California. However, they are attempting to qualify in Santa Cruz county. No word yet on Nevada.

In case you missed it the first time, our manifesto1 includes the platform of no work at all! Yay!

We want every woman to live like a princess with robotic servants and we want everyone to live like wealthy billionaires, wealthy members of royalty, and wealthy slavemasters with robotic servants and robotic slaves that will do all of the work for them.

FACE IT, it would be fun to live like a wealthy person with robotic servants or slaves doing all the work for you!


And flying cars! Flying backpacks! And Ph.D. (especially in a specialty of artificial intelligence robotics), M.D., and/or law degrees for 100% of the population!

If I didn't know better, I would say you were trying to sneak a Republican platform in here. Traditional gender roles (princess?), the wealthy served by an underclass where things trickle down... I know, it's kind of messed up by PhDs and jetpacks, but that's just the sort of wedge issue to get people to focus on anything else than what's really happening.

Yeah, those flying brooms and flying wheelchairs will distract you every time. We're working on getting Ray Kurzweil aboard as Science Advisor, to come up with a plan for when the robotic slaves take over after the Singularity.

Um, yes, I had that one covered in the previous post entitled (coincidentally enough), Alarm Clocks Kill Dreams. You really are into working less...

Toy Robot Intended to Save Humans From Evil, Future Bots

When roboticist David Hanson thinks of the future, he fears that man will accidentally create a super-sentient artificial intelligence that is heartless and clinically insane.

So to save the world, he formed Hanson Robotics and built Zeno, a 17-inch robot boy, who smiles, laughs, recognizes your face and remembers your name.

Fending off the end of the world may be a heavy mantle to hang on the shoulders of a 17-inch robot that's still in prototype stage, but Hanson does call Zeno the superhero of the singularity.

Let's be Superhappy, then!

Freedom is slavery!
