So this is how Earth could eventually become another waterless desert without life like Mars is?

Anselmo la Manna has combined a devastating computer simulation of a massive 310-mile-wide asteroid impacting the Earth with the beautiful Pink Floyd song “The Great Gig in the Sky.

Mind to Machine control  -  a project using neural signaling for remote control of the F-35 simulator  was presented at Future of War conference in Washington
 http://bit.ly/1zWvyGt

Just please don´t instal remote mind control to any more war machines, rather make this tech telepathy useful in more peaceful and creative ways. Its dangerous to put such remote mind controling add-on to devices and machines on mass scale,  not just because  someone might hack whatever, but what if even the machines would eventually have its own bad dreams or moods, right? :-)  Remember Philip K. Dick´s Androids dreaming of electric sheep ... and Skynet.. and Matrix made of thoughts itself...
However, a musician performance competition in remote mind control playing instruments might be amazing, just fancy how it might sound if the imagination of the musician would be faster than his fingers on piano, or playing the whole orchestras of instruments at once by a single composer performing directly with his mind ...
Arati Prabhakar—director of the Pentagon's advanced research arm DARPA—has revealed a breakthrough achievement in machine mind control. Jan Scheuermann, a 55-year-old quadriplegic woman with electrodes in her brain, has been able to fly an F-35 fighter jet using "nothing but her thoughts."

Call for artists! Submit your #digital #art to online exhibition at SIGGRAPH2015 

http://goo.gl/iOwo7p

Altered Books - Digital Interventions celebrates the book as an object that can carry experience, represent language, tell a narrative, convey culture, or archive memory in the context of contemporary arts.
We consider the Altered Book as an artistic production made through the process of de-construction and re-construction of the book form. 
We are interested in Digital Interventions yielding screen-based still imagery that uses the legacy and symbolism of books, scrolls, manuscripts, and/or clay tablets as a point of departure.
This is primarily an on-line exhibition, accessible via the Digital Arts section of the ACM SIGGRAPH website (http://www.siggraph.org/connect/digital-arts). Works will be displayed in a slide show at SIGGRAPH2015, in the Digital Arts Community area.

Artists may submit up to 6 images.
Artists must be members of the on-line Digitial Art Community (DAC) of ACM SIGGRAPH. Membership in DAC is free and participation in this exhibition is also free of charge.
Artists should include a description of source materials in the artist statement.

"...Cyberspace is an act of nature and it grows itself through our collective actions..."

from the Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace by John Perry Barlow, presented February 8 ,1996

Today in History: “A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace” was introduced , 1996
On February 8, 1996 — 19 years ago today — John Perry Barlow promulgated “A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace.” The Declaration states that terrestrial governments, especially those based on geographic borders, have no authority over cyberspace. On the electronic plane, Barlow expressed his belief that “...from ethics, enlightened self-interest, and the commonweal, our governance will emerge…” and “The only law that all our constituent cultures would generally recognize is the Golden Rule.”

Barlow published the Declaration on the same day that U.S President Clinton was signing the Telecommunications Reform Act of 1996. Barlow saw the Act as a big intrusion into a new self-organizing plane of existence in which the existing governments did not belong.

"...So the world’s $1,000 computers are now beating the mouse brain and they’re at about a thousandth of human level. This doesn’t sound like much until you remember that we were at about a trillionth of human level in 1985, a billionth in 1995, and a millionth in 2005. Being at a thousandth in 2015 puts us right on pace to get to an affordable computer by 2025 that rivals the power of the brain..."

Czech band Zrní - song Lazarus
lyrics:

"Alone,  you live alone, working by the conveyor belt for the fifth year
every step you take thinking about leaving that for good.

Year, another year, you sort the components, and then go to sleep
Belt and sleep, and day after day, but it will all come one day...

Day after day, but it will all come one day...
Go Lazarus, go Lazarus, go!
Now, the heaven is now, the heaven is now!

We all are Lazaruses, flying through stars
We are flying across the universe, we have no  helmets...

Alone, having breakfast alone, you close your eyes and the conveyor belt takes you to her...
Away from here to her, you're the component and  she sorts you...

Why, God knows why, even if you do not want, you love her
You love, and so every day after day, but it will all come one day...

Day after day, but it will all come one day...
Go Lazarus, go Lazarus, go!
Now, the heaven is now, the heaven is now!

We all are Lazaruses, flying through stars.
We are flying across the universe, we have no  helmets...
