We have seen the future, and it sucks.

‘My open source cure for brain cancer’

26th November 2012

Read it. And watch the video, if you’ve got ten minutes to throw away that you never want to have back.

Cheap entertainment for your Monday — I wouldn’t let this clown near any sick person if I had anything to say about it.

My first idea was to seek other opinions. Maybe this hospital is wrong. Maybe there are other places that wouldn’t need to do surgery. Maybe there is a laser, a chemical, an ancient tradition, a shaman, a scientist, a nanorobot.

As you might have guessed, he’s an artiste, and so knows very little about the real world.

My main objective — the best thing I felt that I could do — was to make my digital information available on the Internet, in formats that would allow people of multiple cultures, skills, professions and inclinations to access, use, recombine and redistribute it.

In other words, he’s depending on other people to cure him — for free. A poster child for the New World Order.

I see a cure as a dynamic process, in which multiple doctors, professionals, artists, scientists and others join as a society — to converse, support each other, be open to various contributions and shape solutions that merge humanity, technology, technique, philosophy and art. Creativity and “normal life” become part of the process and bring “diseased” people back to life.

I guess the important part is to realize that being cured is not a physical thing but a state of mind. All together now: ‘I feel cured. I feel cured.’

    Seems the cancer has already impaired his cognition…

    Assuming, of course, that there was any cognition there in the first place. Looking at the picture, I know which way I’d bet.
