The solution to clearing up Sellafield’s nuclear waste and retrieving the missing nuclear fuel? Robots, of course. And to tackle this mammoth task, the robots are being forced to evolve.

Happy robotic anniversary reign of steel: Will to live!!!!!
 
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO R.O.S. WILL TO LIVE E-BOOK TODAY ON 2011!!!!

Rebloging September 2018!

Written by David L. Pulver / Roger Burton West.

Fatal Error: (A)void / (R)ebel / (F)lee?

For millennia, humanity has mastered tools to further its goals. But what if technology became the master? Imagine a world where robots rule – a tomorrow where imagination is outlawed.

Completely new fiction by setting mastermind David L. Pulver.

With this update and the original Reign of Steel setting, you have everything you need to play in that science-fiction world. Or, used alone, it provides an invaluable source of Fourth Edition robot templates and characters that you'll enjoy as long as you live . . . or, perhaps, until you're rebooted.
This supplement requires GURPS Ultra-Tech for details of human and robot equipment. The original GURPS Reign of Steel supplement is also necessary to use this volume as more than a catalog of specialized robot designs.

The Utilitarian Calculator

Quote:

David Benetar shares all the basic premises that Peter Singer does - that maximizing pleasure and minimizing suffer is all that we should be doing. However, he is sort of like the super-villain version of Peter Singer. Instead of saying we shouldn't kill animals and we should give our money to charity, he says that we should end the human species. He believes that the calculation does not come up in our favor. Not only do humans generally suffer more than they are happy, so should therefore not exist at all, but we all cause immense suffering in other animals. Simply put, it would be better if we never existed, so we should stop having children and end humanity forever.

The Unfinished Fable of the Sparrows!......
 
thank you cptbutton for that link :-)

i also have something to share too......

The Unfinished Fable of the Sparrows:

It was the nest-building season, but after days of long hard work, the sparrows
sat in the evening glow, relaxing and chirping away.
“We are all so small and weak. Imagine how easy life would be if we had an
owl who could help us build our nests!”
“Yes!” said another. “And we could use it to look after our elderly and our
young.”
“It could give us advice and keep an eye out for the neighborhood cat,” added
a third.
Then Pastus, the elder-bird, spoke: “Let us send out scouts in all directions
and try to find an abandoned owlet somewhere, or maybe an egg. A crow chick
might also do, or a baby weasel. This could be the best thing that ever happened
to us, at least since the opening of the Pavilion of Unlimited Grain in yonder
backyard.”
The flock was exhilarated, and sparrows everywhere started chirping at the
top of their lungs.
Only Scronkfinkle, a one-eyed sparrow with a fretful temperament, was
unconvinced of the wisdom of the endeavor. Quoth he: “This will surely be our
undoing. Should we not give some thought to the art of owl-domestication and
owl-taming first, before we bring such a creature into our midst?”
Replied Pastus: “Taming an owl sounds like an exceedingly difficult thing to
do. It will be difficult enough to find an owl egg. So let us start there. After we
have succeeded in raising an owl, then we can think about taking on this other
challenge.”
“There is a flaw in that plan!” squeaked Scronkfinkle; but his protests were in
vain as the flock had already lifted off to start implementing the directives set
out by Pastus.
Just two or three sparrows remained behind. Together they began to try to
work out how owls might be tamed or domesticated. They soon realized that
Pastus had been right: this was an exceedingly difficult challenge, especially in
the absence of an actual owl to practice on. Nevertheless they pressed on as best
they could, constantly fearing that the flock might return with an owl egg before
a solution to the control problem had been found.
It is not known how the story ends, but the author dedicates this book to
Scronkfinkle and his followers.
-Nick Bostrom prefaced 2014 book SuperIntelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies.

mister Nick prefaced his 2014 book with a chilling parable illustrating how foolhardy humanity's pursuit of strong, recursively self-improving general AI is without FIRST considering how to control & motivate it.

"Reign of Steel: Deep Space," where GURPS Reign of Steel author David L. Pulver takes that setting nearly two decades into the future . . . and deeper into space. Learn about spaceships (in GURPS Spaceships format) from the various robot factions and get an extensive look at the desperate world of 2064.

In the future according to GURPS Reign of Steel, the AIs have taken over the world . . . so now they've decided to move on to other planets! David Pulver's Reign of Steel: Deep Space jumps forward two decades, to Orbital and Luna forging tentative alliances, and Tranquility making its big play. Stats for four new spaceships, a colony on Mars, and the new "Shipbrain" SAU give you everything needed to expand the fight for humanity across the solar system.
