Why are people dead-stupid?

A person recently queried my statement regarding the typical stupidity of humans. The person querying my condemnation of typical human intellectualism highlighted how humans are currently the foremost intelligent species. Our innate intelligence was presented as hypothetical proof regarding how humans are incapable of being stupid. It was suggested a better descriptor would be willful ignorance or foolishness. I am aware of the innate intelligence possessed by humans, and I also consider "willful ignorance" or "foolishness" to be valuable descriptors, but I personally feel "stupidity" is the appropriate descriptor due to the extreme rarity of innate intelligence being expressed.

Poor Intelligence Utilization

The level of cognitive inadequacy exhibited by humans is shockingly severe to an extremely pronounced degree, thus stupidity is a preeminently suitable descriptor. All descriptors fail to encapsulate the monstrous idiocy of humans but "stupidity" comes closest to defining the illogicality of humans. The lack of intellectual acumen exhibited by typical humans is truly pitiful. The atrocious severity regarding human intellectual failure is beyond mere words, but the unambiguous quality of the word "stupidity" is something humans can usually grasp. The word "stupidity" is the direct opposite to intelligence, therefore what I am expressing is the notion of humans being extremely alienated from their intelligence. Humans are exceedingly removed from their intelligence. Due to cultural, social, political, and economic circumstances, humans have become diametrically opposed to intelligence. Humans experience cognitive conflict. Humans are in opposition to their innate intelligence. Cognitive dissonance, estrangement, doublethink, and anomie are good terms to describe some aspects of stupidity but these details are superfluous because it is more than enough to know humans are simply stupid. Humans have created stupidity but via technology humans are also solving the problem of stupidity.

Writing this blog is a monstrously painful burden. Stating the obvious is extremely tiresome. What is obvious to me is sadly not obvious to the majority of people therefore instead of tearfully collapsing in utter despair regarding the stupidity of humans I must write this. My motivation for expressing these sentiments is to explain how our lives are wasted due to stupidity. Many aspects of our world are exceptionally futile because the ability of typical humans to comprehend the logic is severely suppressed. The obvious needs to be explained because for many people obvious things are not obvious. Our time is wasted and people die unnecessarily. Science and technology will create human immortality by year 2045 at the latest. We are approaching an of informational explosion regarding medical and computer science. In the not too distant future ultra-smart people will live forever.

Mortally Stupid Humans

Massive wastage of our lives occurs due to nonsense, pain, futility, and stupidity. People are embroiled in frivolous inanity. Acknowledging the stupidity of humans is the first step to overcoming stupidity. Many examples of pettiness in modern culture illustrate how small-minded things consume our attention and energy. Politicians and businesspeople are masterful examples of how superfluous rules, reports, reviews, regulations, and rituals waste our lives. President Barack Obama spent months filling our minds with a promise to shut the Guantanamo Bay detention camp but his promise was empty nonsense, it was a waste of our time. Politicians frequently break their promises. Due to the life-wasting nonsense of civilization you are not likely to be informed about the Singularity by official Governmental sources or by multinational corporations. There is no grand vision for the human race within political or business arenas. Politicians and businesses are purely interested in short term profits, they only want to secure their big paychecks. The leaders managing our civilization are oblivious regarding the immortal future we are approaching. Our leaders pander to mass human stupidity, but technology transforms average people regardless of what our leaders desire.

The failure of politicians and businesses to explain how we will soon be immortal is an enormous failure. Science and technology by year 2045 at the latest will allow us to reverse the damage caused by aging. We will live forever. Official mainstream spokespeople are failing abysmally to generate awareness; their negligence is almost criminal. People carelessly throw their lives away because they think it's impossible to live forever. People don't realize we are heading towards an immortal future. Stem Cells, nanotechnology, biotech, and genetic engineering will prolong our lives indefinitely. Many people falsely expect old age will one day kill them; but the truth is that immortality is easily within our grasp and with greater publicity we can make immortality happen sooner instead of later. People falsely think death is inevitable. People are mortally stupid: dead-stupid.

Catastrophic Deathly Statistics

On 26th May 2010 the season finale of American Idol was watched by 24 million people, but only a small amount of people support immortality research. Consider how the general public perceives disaster zone deaths. The Haiti 2010 earthquake caused a total of 316,000 deaths, thus U2, Rihanna, and Jay-Z responded by recording a charity song for Haiti. The great Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami of 2011 caused approximately 25,000 deaths, thus pop-stars responded with the fund-raising Songs for Japan. Pop-stars sadly don't appear to care about elderly people dying thus at the time of writing this blog no charity pop-songs have been created to help fund immortality research.

Each day approximately 100,000 elderly people die. Weekly geriatric
global deaths are more than double the total deaths from the 2010 Haiti earthquake. Approximately 1.4 million elderly people die every fortnight, which means 3 million elderly people die each month. Old age causes a shocking amount of deaths. Geriatric deaths easily exceed the death toll from any natural disaster or terrorist attack, but pop-stars, politicians, and businesses ignore the disaster of geriatric mortality. Deaths due to old age constitute the biggest natural disaster in human history. We should be at war-readiness in the fight against geriatric death. Our munitions in this battle to abolish "geriatric-mortality" should entail heavy funding for nanotechnology and Stem Cell research. We need total effort, unwavering dedication, total commitment. In addition to taxes already paid, each person in the developed world should be contributing at least one US dollar per week for funding into the relevant areas of longevity. We need to throw as much money as possible at the problem of geriatric-mortality. If every person of working age (in developed countries) paid only one US dollar extra every week, regarding an "immortality tax", this could easily raise two billion US dollars every month for immortality research. We need greater awareness of Singularity issues.

The most severe catastrophic threat for humans is a lack of positive awareness regarding the utopian benefits of the Singularity.
Our failure to focus on the positives regarding our forthcoming immortality is the biggest pitfall regarding the future. Via being aware of the pleasures of the future this will counteract the dangers. Ignorance regarding our utopian future must stop. 100,000 dead people everyday, think about it.

Proving Our Enhanced Intelligence

I want you to prove to me humans can transcend their stupidity. Many silly aspects of culture become very popular but we must prove intellectual issues can compete with human silliness. My challenge to you is regarding the number of times people have shared this blog-post. I want you to help me acquire more total shares than the daily death toll for elderly people. We are therefore aiming for more than 100,000 shares. Now is the time for us to show how a significant amount of people can become aware of worthwhile intellectual futurism. We can counteract the stupidity. We can raise awareness regarding our forthcoming brainy immortality.

On 4th of May 2011 only 64 people had shared this whole Singularity Utopia blog (via an old sharing system I am not using anymore, and in Novemeber 2012 the shares reached 72 just before I removed the old share button).

You can make a difference. You can share this whole blog on Facebook via the options in th right-hand-side option and via the share options at the bottom of the post below you can share this individual post, "Why are people dead-stupid?" - Let's see if we can get more than 100,000 shares... (LOL)

Popular examples of frivolous Facebook "like" figures from 4th May 2011:

694,818  people like: Can this Pickle get more fans than Twilight?

382,936  people like: Can this Goat get more fans than Barack Obama?

178,722  people like: Can this Hobo get more Fans than The Jonas Brothers?

215,941  people like: Pippa Middleton Ass Appreciation Society

Twilight is a fictional story regarding immortal Vampires who kill people. On 4th May 2011 there were 20 million Facebook "likes" for Twilight. Fictional nonsense regarding murderous immortal Vampires is unsurprisingly more popular than real the immortality Stem Cells will create. In our stupid world there is minimal awareness of how regenerative medicine will create immortality no later than year 2045. Everyone occasionally enjoys escapism, and I'm sure Twilight is enjoyable, but if your awareness only encompasses fictional immortality instead of the prospect of real Stem Cell immortality and genetic rejuvenation therapies then this is a problem we need to solve.

You can change the world

We must focus on utopia. Utopia is coming! Pure pleasure without any dangers! There are no negatives when we focus on the positives. We can defeat the negatives by addressing the positives. Unawareness of the positives is very negative. The biggest negative is a lack awareness regarding the positive aspects of the Singularity. "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself". Liberate yourself from the destructive nature of fear! You can be supremely intelligent. You can change the world. We will live forever in eternal youth.

The purpose of our civilization is to make the world a better place. The idea of being civilized is to eliminate pain, suffering, and cruelty. We enhance our minds via our culture, thus utopia is the ultimate goal. Utopia is a perfect sociopolitical system. You can make our world less stupid. You can make utopia happen sooner instead of later. Lack of information is the biggest cause of stupidity but each day technology provides people with increasing amounts of information; we are approaching and explosion of knowledge; we are approaching an intelligence explosion. We are reordering our minds, we are becoming empowered.

1. Tell your friends and family about Stem Cells, regenerative medicine.
2. Write a letter to your politician, to raise political awareness.
3. Discuss the idea of an "immortality tax" with friends, family, and colleagues.
4. Support longevity organizations such as:


"We see things they'll never see
You and I are gonna live forever"
