What is technology?








Tech of Ancient Rome

* Their technology was different than ours, rather than entirely primitive. Ancient Rome had some of what the modern world does. 
* Flush toilets, hydraulics, cranes, precise surgical tools, fountains, primitive steam engine, social clubs, floor heating, iron working, books, glass blowing, concrete, mining powered via water wheel, irrigation, roads, laws, senators, political parties, governments, sanitation, grand bridges and arches, civil engineering, weaving machines, drainage pumps, apartment buildings, arch dams, possibly tide mills, slide rule, taverns, human powered treadwheels, gear and rope systems, composite archery bows, scale armor, chainmail armor, leather boots, fashion shows, advanced education systems, gambling, boxing, board games, sports, coliseums, siphon water transport, daily chariot racing, compact multi-tool army gadget, and much more.

Video is usually brought in from a space satilite.
* A physical photo album is rare, but photos are "Lenticular" multi-view.
* Objects don't often come painted, as their core material is moisture/heat resistant.
* Clothes are often nice-looking coveralls. Washed daily using vibration and wind; washed weekly using a sand-like chemical.
* Many people own their own business, often artistic, and projects are crowd-funded.
* Trash has huge value, being useful oars and materuals. Trash is recycled into 3D printer ink.
* Hospital patients first undergo a full body scan, then an automated body-improvement procedure where skin conditions are improved, eyes are improved, even skeletal structure is reinforced. Ear hair is removed, fingernails are trimmed, blood is filtered, broken organs are braced for future surgery.
* Technology blends in, is organic, flowing, elegant, extremely strong. Exposed circuits often look fashionable, be it organic or futuristic. People aren't very surprised by technology breakthroughs.
* Amish culture has made a come-back, accepting many kinds of certified technology as long as it has a low probability of contributing to corruption of society. A gadget funded by a corrupt individual, raises many red flags.
* 3D Growing by means of manipulating mushroom fungus root. Invented in 2014 by Officina Corpuscoli of corpuscoli.com. Fungus turns a wool-like material into a hard shell.
* Bio-luminescent Ceiling, glowing dimly. The color changing into the food-spray you apply to your ceiling.

Giving you a health report and even fixing minor issues. Giving you a instant genetic and DNA analysis, and what to change in your diet or diseases to look out for. Also giving you family tree information and very basic medical reports of your genetic family tree.
* 100% Glass Marble Computer. Using sunlight, fiber optics, reflections, glass thickness and hardness, laser etching and melting, light control and manipulation. 
* SeaWater Desalination (removal of unhealthy minerals from river or oceans) at an immense scale.
* Smart Zoom operating systems such as my GridBounce desktop concept.
* Geothermal widespread power. 
* Hologram mid-air 3D imagery. 
* NASA's Ion Space Engine (high speed). 
* Plasma Force Field. 
* Highspeed Internet for all places on Earth.
* PreCrime Prediction and History Analysis: My augmented reality suit, allows me to watch historic events which were never recorded. Because of of context clues, ancient photos, historical books, radio broadcasts picked up in space, family prefrences, genetic predisposition (tendency), studying human cause and effects, power usage records, dirt analysis, and much more. I view "proceduraly generated" butterfly-effects of what may have happened in years past. Decoding (discovering) the past is big business, although it's a huge privacy infringement. Some people attempt to view live ongoing events, which is discouraged. Predicting crime is risky  because it's not 100% accurate, so resulting arrests relocate major would-be-terrorism to a temporary analysis cage. 



Are Computers Handy? UP Side 

* Instant encyclopedia and community projects. Truth hunting sites like Snopes. Cross reference databases. Instant road navigation. School material always being up to date. Entertainment and Edutainment. Communication from afar. Rapid spread of essays, DIY tutorials, and raw unfiltered news and comments direct from the news source. AI assistance. Computer aided drafting, research, and interfacing with information. Wildly entertaining and fun YouTube video channels.



Are Computers Handy? DOWN Side 

* Common unseen bugs, crashes, viruses, lengthy updates, dropping your phone in water, memory failure, uneven sloppy interface design, and technical people saying the problem is the user not being trained. Rapid spread of false urban legends and scam emails, inappropriate unfiltered content to a very young audience. 



Examples of Cutting Edge Software

* Video Game rendering and physics engines: Unreal Engine.
* 3D Sculpting and Animation: zBrush. Maya. CAD. 
* 2D Paintings and Vector Shapes: Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. 
* NextGen Gaming consoles and the developer kits making gaming possible. 
* Audio and Video Editing: 
* Government demographic tracking simulations. 
* A.I. of various sorts. 
* City: Transportation tracking systems of subway, highway, air traffic, military traffic. 
* Government & Military: Data careers such as cryptography and decoding foreign data traffic. Supercomputer applications.
* Medical: DNA Sequencing and Genomics. 
* Google: Web Crawling Indexing Algorithms (math behind search results). YouTube video compression and streaming. 
* OS: Kernel Memory Garbage Recycling. Multi-Core Processing. FileSystem of Windows 9 and forward OS's.

Project Cork OS;
What will it be like in the future? Well in an organized part of society, it could be something like this.
* Zoom in and out of a 1 mile by 1 mile cork board.
* The cork board will have organic, live, changing interface elements. Randomly generated shapes to help you sort and sift your terabytes of data.
* The cork board will pay close attention to what you like, and only offer new ideas if you ask for them, or seem to like them.
* The cork board features will all be highly useful, and features you do not use will not bother you.
* The cork board will not have advertising within your files, but may have subliminal advertising as you play with public media. More productive suggestions than advertising, but sometimes a mix of both.
* You will have access to nearly any media you like as either an identifiable person, or a completely anon person. Anon's will have full access. Many books of the past were written by anon.
* The cork board will have a blue marble, you can zoom in on. This is the photo-realistic earth, allowing you to fly around the planet as if you were there, not restricted by health nor monetary funds.
* Interact: The cork board will be highly accessible by the disabled, even the blind if they chose to risk experimental implants available right now.
* Sharing: Each woman, child, and man will have their own open-source cork board, and be able to interact with the public data of others corkboards. Sharing is not only recommended, it's extremely vital, but should never be enforced.
* Interact/Senses: The user can interact with the cork board with old fashioned 2d television, 3d displays, or light-weight 3d video glasses using multi-sense stimulation. Chemical-releasing digital contact lenses may be developed, to help the user stay focused and calm while doing strenuous work.
* Ideas will eventually be the replacement to money, and while still unfair, better methods will come along to equalize the living quality of us all.
* Criminals are treated well, but must work hard to earn freedom. Extreme criminals are brain washed (memories erased), and or made brain dead instead of being killed. Brain erased criminals need to learn to walk/talk again, and some may be hated by society, but they will eventually fit in. Given new names and a new start on life.
* Political: The government will be highly automated, chat bots, and billions of public ideas daily rated by the citizens. Ideas of every kind and sort. Infrequently a group of elders from each nation will resolve errors. The Constitution of the United States will continue to have effect. If this free-voting world starts to go bad, the automated government software can be overridden by traditional U.S. Government standards until the automated system is renovated.

Project Code Name ArcoSilva
Proposition 1
To be placed on a project page, perhaps a subset of “Future Theories” page on my profile. 
Dec 5, 2008
Royce Barber

Let's make an earth-saving city in a really big building. A luxurious human “ant hill”. Create a diverse array (collection) and collaboration of inspirational ideas/schematics for Arcology and world peace. Arcology is a city within a building. A complete city which is self-sustaining, without pollution, luxurious community accommodations, morally graceful, and good for the planet. Think of a hotel with indoor gardens, hydroponic farms, solar, chemical/materials recycling, etc. Making the earth cleaner and happier while we have it, however long that may be, from a minute to a billion years. Every step toward a peaceful collaboration of world solutions, makes us all sleep a little easier. Project ArcoSilva plans to be an Artificial Intelligence controlled, interactive database of making technology, earth, and humans play nicely and safely. Structures/Buildings to last thousands of years. 

Idea Generation 1: Utilizing All Senses (Touch, Smell, Sight, Hearing, Other)
Idea Generation 2: Sight/Visual
Take photos of household objects, cooking utensils, and laser-scan them into a 3D digital collection. Scale the dimensions equally, meaning make them all a similar size. These human, cultured items of many shapes are a great way to practice visualizing how technologies of every size may integrate together. Tech that has been around for ages, and tech that wont be around for ages. 
Idea Generation 2: Auditory/Hearing
Idea Generation 3: Touch 
Idea Generation 4: Smell/Scent
Idea Generation 5: 
Idea Generation 6: 
Idea Generation 7: Spiritual. Christian Ministry and Prayer. Worshipping Jesus Christ. 

Key Words (Search Terms/Tags/Labels): 
Arcology, Architecture, City, Earth, Humanity, Solutions, Multipurpose, Ecosystem, Self Sustaining, Philosophy, Cure, Technologies, Urban Development, Creative Process, Duomo Church Imagery, Ocean Island, 

-------------------- -------------------- -------------------- -------------------- --------------------  -------------------- 

MWM: Men's Worldwide Ministries. 
* Following the great commission of spreading the news of Jesus to the world. An internet based ministry to support believers across the world. Giving them 

ideas, how-to, education, and highest quality content for free. Containing a website full of content and software, educational chat bots, and access to other users. 
-------------------- -------------------- -------------------- -------------------- --------------------  -------------------- 
* Welcome to sSpirit, your life and memories programmed into a chat bot. During life, the chat bot is your virtual assistant. sSpirit is simply a software 

program that emulates the person it was designed after. It represents you online and is your life coach. After death, sSpirit ensures your wishes and goals are 

continued and followed through. sSpirit is an echo of who you were, that the future may always remember you. More importantly, that your many projects 

and goals can continue. One might view sSpirit as a social autobiography. sSpirit can be placed on a cell phone, inside a robot cat, in an ear ring, etc.

Scifi Novel Writing and Poetry. 
* Royce's current literature can be seen on roycebarber.com. Royce plans to write about his technology ideas in these stories. 
-------------------- -------------------- -------------------- -------------------- --------------------  -------------------- 
100% Glass Computer. 
* Optical. Libraries of information, stored as light pulses and images; reflecting inside a glass sphere at the speed of light. 
-------------------- -------------------- -------------------- -------------------- --------------------  -------------------- 
* Levitating pixels. Little chunks of illuminated glass. A glass cloud that you can interact with. Not just looking like a ghost, but more of a solid object. A shell 

made of glass dust, supported by magnetics or electrons forced through the air. 
-------------------- -------------------- -------------------- -------------------- --------------------  -------------------- 
Inflatible House & Gadgets.
The shell of a house, designed in fabric, inflated to look and feel like a real home. The circut boards weaved into the fabric. Visual: Using air instead of cotton 

stuffing, inside stuffed animals. The fabric having unique textured density and flexibility to simulate something inside. This cuts down price of building 

materials by 99%. An entire home and plumbing can consist of one inflatable piece of fabric delivered to your property in a minivan. 
-------------------- -------------------- -------------------- -------------------- --------------------  -------------------- 
Multi Utility Knife:
* This knife is a robot in the shape of a soda can. This knife is a cylinder the shape and size of a soda can. It contains hundreds of little metal toothpicks, 

with clockwork joints, to enable the knife to have many combinations. The knife has a robotic arm consisting of metal toothpicks and twenty little electric 

engines the size of pennies; which assembles the gadget you want within seconds. A wrench, a toe hitch, a shoe, air compressor, etc. The cylendar shell is a 

wrapped up screen, so the little metal toothpicks can be assembled into the shape of a laptop. 
-------------------- -------------------- -------------------- -------------------- --------------------  -------------------- 
Auto-Generating and Remixing TV Shows and Content of Any Kind. 
* TV Actors designed in 3D, using computer voices, remixing content from tv, books, and the internet. Means fresh content 24/7 for free. Ten billion hours of 

content could be generated faster than real time, on a computer, then played back without the use of a computer. Think of it as a person playing with paper 

dolls, making up scripts and placing them on photos of homes in magazines. 
-------------------- -------------------- -------------------- -------------------- --------------------  -------------------- 
Keyword File Organization.
* Inspired by Google Gmail's real world use of storing email in keywords ("Filters") rather than folders. This way all your email is stored in your inbox, and 

clicking a label will filter through the email to get what you have associated that label with. A search for "dog" will bring up all email with the word dog, but 

a dog label will only bring up email sent by users you have labeled as dog. The good thing of using filter, keyword, label, whatever you want to call it; is that 

you can view the same dog photo under numerous labels. So you can have a label for Joe, and a label for Animals. The dog photo, being Joe's dog, will 

show up under both labels. This eliminates cross referencing ("please see page 4") seen in dictionaries. 
-------------------- -------------------- -------------------- -------------------- --------------------  -------------------- 
Necklace Operating System.
* Turn on your computer and view a 3D necklace. Using your input method of choice, such as a mouse or touch screen, you may move the necklace around. 

The necklace represents your hard drive, and all your files are on this necklace. You can look up close at the necklace to see your projects, music, files, lables, 

photos, movies, etc. You can throw the necklace into the distance to work on a new project, and bring close the necklace to look at a file on it before tossing 

it away again. You can unhook the necklace to dump all your files onto the floor, but that would be messy. The necklace isn't a file cabinet, because the 

necklace uses keyword groups rather than folders. See "keyword organization" on this document.

The ULEARN Project: Universal Learning Automated Research Network. 

Keywords: Chat Bot, Macro Math Formula Engine, Information Retrieval, Database Lists. 

Project Description: Create a chat bot that can instantly access every bit of public information. A bot that can access all directories of all sorts. A bot that 

recognizes all popular forms of input and output; be it scanned text, images, audio, voice commands, 411, 911, text to speech, government forms, different 

languages, satellite imagery, phone book, dictionaries, web site databases, movies, concert and movie schedules, automated macro's, phone support, Google, 

file sharing, Wikipedia, Digg, News, Weather, Google Earth, Laws, live planet webcams statistics, ups, snail mail, email, extremely smart searches and filters, 

tv guide, opensource, streaming multimedia feeds, all of Google and Microsoft's accessible services, etc. 

Challenge: Creating a minimalist approach to setting up a series of one thousand separate mathematical macro's that will control retreval of information. 

Additional Information: The bot will be able to access information, interact with the information, Convert file types, download and store information, translate, 

-------------------- -------------------- -------------------- -------------------- -------------------- -------------------- -------------------- 
Note for anyone reading this... The intellect and quest for technology is endless. You can't win. Don't let it eat you alive. Be humbly content with what the Lord 

has blessed you with. He will bring you where you need to be, as long as you live for him and do your best. Take charge of your life, under the Lord's protection and commandments.

Royce E. Barber’s prediction of the ultimate future gadget:
Video uplink to an InternationalSuperComputer.
New borns have a contact lens put on their eyes. This lens has a multimedia uplink to an InternationalSuperComputer. The lens is basically a video display, with no processor. The InternationalSuperComputer allocates 900Terabytes of harddrive space and a personal operating system to each person. The lens is made of a durable thin transparent video display. The lens also allows for UV protection, night vision, seeing long distances, and correcting any vision problems. The lens is used throughout the person’s life as a personal assistant, for education, for business, and for entertainment. The lens video records the person’s entire life in high quality audio/video/smells/tastes so they can recall those events at any time. The lens can be turned on and off with 8 fast blinks. The lens will improve your social ability as you will be able to chat with others by seeing   a text bubble above their heads with their personal profile.
Wake up in the morning, blink your eyes 8 times to activate your computer lens. You can either enter into LifeMode, RecallMode, or InternetBrowse mode. LifeMode will overlay information over the things you see as you go about your day. RecallMode will play back previously recorded events and meetings. InternetBrowse mode will allow you to interact with your personal computer and browse through others shared files.
When in InternetBrowse mode, your experience will be this: You see a 3d sphere that represents the earth. As you zoom in towards the earth you will notice forests on the earth. Each forest represents a country. Within each forest is a tree, trees are grouped in colors. Each tree represents a zone, a different color for each zone. Zones include residential, industrial, commercial, military, education, seaport, airport, government, and so on. Each zone is a different color. As you zoom closer to a tree, you see leafs. Each leaf represents a human. As you zoon into any given leaf, you will see the humans shared folders displayed within the veins of the leaf. The shared files of others act as their personal communication center, or website. You can interact with their files, or you can zoom out and zoom into your leaf where you interact with your own personal files.
Note, this is the first draft of this document, and will undergo several modifications. The goal of this document is to help form a new internet system. Comments are greatly valued on this subject.

I want to create an Open Interface Foundation. Eventually I’ll form a bulleted list of objectives, but for now the following is a creed of the foundation:
With your help we believe we can create an effortless and exciting computer interface. Discovering easy ways to navigate your computer. This will become a rather large and lengthy website, please bear with us while we move in, and alert us if anything can be simplified. The hope of the foundation is to make computer interfaces easy, regardless of the content complexity. For example, we believe an intricate blueprint can be understood by a 7 year old, if the blueprint is designed correctly. When you interact with your computer, you should be able to do anything you can imagine and have it done immediately, no matter your disabilities or age. The foundation desires to think outside of time and space, where there are no restrictions on creativity, where thoughts are poetic rather than piles of paper work. There is no labor; there are only artistic masterpieces continually in the making. This foundation is more based on meditation than any conventional business structure.
We hope that this website will be accessible to any computer and cell phone, eventually interfacing every piece of information humanity is willing to share. We are not daunted by this endless task, because time restrictions and anxiety do not fit into our creed. There is always room for exciting improvement, and one should enjoy the ride because in the end all our efforts are just one stone in a pond of billions. The larger and astonishing the task, the more efficiency we will acquire. Turning work into hobbies, hobbies into play, and play into life changing experiences. Staying in line with a living creed, and forming it to an organized world, will take dedication, and that will come with loving the work.

Internet as a Mist of Small Computers
An Original Article by Royce Edward Barber
- 2006 -
What is this all about?
This article is a simple explanation of microscopic glass computers floating in the air. Talking to each other with pulses of light and vibrations. An internet of tiny snow-flakes. Placing many of these snow-flakes near each other creates a mist. A glass mist made of computers. This Glass Mist serves many purposes. It’s an internet of computers floating in the air. You will breathe in this Glass Mist, and it will nurture you much the same as eating food. The Glass Mist will get in your eyes, acting as a UV Shield to block out the sun’s harmful rays. The UV Shield will also act as a video screen, overlaying information onto your vision. The interface to the computer is not fully discovered. Perhaps to give the Glass Computer Mist instructions, draw a symbol on the roof of your mouth with your tongue. Or very-
slightly move the tip of your tongue as a mouse cursor. Glass Computers will detect the movement vibrations and react accordingly. The mist can also act as a 3D Video Camera, capturing images in light and playing them back anywhere as holographic.
What is a tool?
A tool is a device that (most commonly) provides a mechanical advantage in accomplishing a physical task.
What is a computer?
A computer is a machine designed for manipulating data according to a list of instructions known as a program. A computer is also a multi-purpose tool.
Can a computer be made of glass?
Light reflecting images around in a glass marble. A really small glass marble, that floats around in the air. You breathe it in; it also gets in your eyes. When you breath it in, it acts like food and also cleans your blood. When it gets in your eyes, it forms a coat of UV protection from the harmful sun. Also when it gets in your eyes, light in the air forms a Video Screen in front of your eyes.
What is the internet?
The internet is the publicly accessible worldwide system of interconnected computer networks. It is made up of thousands of smaller commercial, academic, domestic, and government networks. It carries various information and services, such as electronic mail, online chat, and the interlinked Web pages and other documents.

What were the inspirations for Crystal Computers?
Collaboration of new and old ideas. Most notably, software interfaces in various video game interactivity. Secondary, philosophies of the computer and robotics industries. Third, information flow charts and architecture blueprints. Fouth, the little picture previews on the back of software boxes at Bestbuy. Fifth, imaginary computer interfaces in Japanese Anime cartoons. Sixth, God’s creation being intricate and infinite.
What does the word Computer mean?
A computer is a series of tools, meant to make your life easier. Similar to wearing shoes or driving a car. One task of a computer can be a library, allowing you to read whatever literary works you like. The point is, daily tasks are made easier with tools, and computers are simply multi-function tools.
What is a Crystal Computer?
Think of a magnifying glass, it does funny things with light and images. Similar when looking through the bottom of a drinking glass. Now think of a brick made of glass. If you hold a glass brick up to light, you see all kinds of interesting things going on. Be it crystal, glass, Plexiglas, or diamonds; the light is reflected all over the place. Stars in space twinkle simply because they are reflecting the light of the sun! Imagine if reflected light could be used as a tool. Have you heard of optical fiber, where pulses of light travel along a glass-like wire? Those pulses are used like Morris code, an old form of communication, where an arrangement of sound chirps represent different letters and words. Instead of sound chirps or beeps, we are talking flashes of light. You can achieve this by putting any glass object up to light, the lights shines within the glass object. With this code of flashes, little mirrors
The idea here is a glass brick can do the same functions as an everyday laptop computer. Giving you email, Google searches, video games, etc. The way this is possible, is light pulses through the glass brick. Parts of the brick are reflective, like mirrors, manipulating the light into images and information. Light traveling through the brick is reflected through mirror-like tunnels, to different areas of the brick, depending on what the computer is trying to do. Pulses of light traveling through the brick make for a very fast computer. The computer routs light similar to a highway system routing automobiles.
A crystal computer is much like a traditional Desktop Computer, except made of Crystal instead of plastics and metals. Pulses of light travel through the crystal, continually reflecting images and information. One idea is the pulse of light can work as a laser
* Crystal computers look like a snow flake, but on a much smaller scale.
* Each computer has a small amount of abilities, and together the computers form a supercomputer. This supercomputer is the new internet.
* One way to interact with the computer will be to draw a simple symbol on the top of your mouth. Symbols instruct the computer what function to do for you.
* Humans breath, thus Crystal Computers in the air will give us the nutrients we need to survive. The computers will keep us fed, clean our blood, and rid us of diseases.
* As you walk throughout the day, a small coating of computers will line your eyes, for two reasons: 1. Protection from harmful UV rays. 2. Light shining through the crystal substance will create a video screen that you will see.
