Fuck skeletons, why hasn't there been an enemy based on the Human nervous system?
It really makes my imagination run wild that our mere conciousness, our being, runs through our nervous system. Break our spinal cord, and poof, we're gone.
Doesn't that thought scare you?
Though our flesh may be weak, and our backs may break, nothing can ever destroy the human will to make super fighting robots a reality. This thought is what allows me to sleep at night.
imagine that walking toward you with nothing but skeleton legs and a spine, and it's able to move every strand of nerve fiber individually as arms to reach out and choke you to death
>that feel when you're entire consciousness is actually just a brain
>that feel when there's a skeleton OUTSIDE of you
>The skeleton actually is protecting you
>You're your skeleton's only real friend
>You see what it sees
>You know how it feels
>And when you die
>He will not remember you because no brain
The skelebro inside of you has been with you every stage of development since before birth.
The skelebro inside of you will be with you at death.
The skelebro inside of you will even wait right by your side as you decompose completely.
Then the skelebro will scare the living piss out of anyone that finds your dead body.
>that feel when skeletons would be our best friends if we didn't have that gay primal fear of corpses
Star crossed lovers, never to be.
>implying anyone here knows the first thing about veins and arteries
Imagine what that would feel like to be a walking nervous system. Touching anything, even air, even just existing, would be literally the most painful thing that could ever occur to you. Every fiber of your body would be constantly burning, every instant of your life another intense and unstoppable spike of intense agony. But all you can do is silently stalk along, boiling in your misery, unable to whisper even a sound.
Lets go deeper.
The purpose of the organic bodies is to propagate dna. Alternatively, bodies are the machine that dna tooled over eons.
Conclusion, Monsters of walking or pooled dna strands would be ultimate spooky.
... Could be a slime.
Way too OP, you should give them a weakness, like having to consume other matter to continue their existence. And not easy stuff like plants, the flesh of the dead shall sustain them as well!
>parts of your body, vital organs no less, don't have blood vessels running to them
This is what Christians actually believe.
>needing structural support
lesser being say the funniest things
To be honest though, the thought of humans eventually outgrowing our basic survival capabilities through technological advancement scares me. If history has taught us anything its that shit can go south fast and nothing is too big to fail. It would be like Wall-E except the humans withered bones get crushed to dust under their own weight the moment they step foot back on Earth
That's honestly my dream, but if we do reach that point in our lifetime then, yeah, we'll probably get super beta shit that will fail very unexpectedly. Like one second you're with your finest robo-ho and the next you're just dead, and no one would have seen it coming because the system diagnostics aren't fully fleshed out yet.
> implying earth will be habitable at that point
>those teeth made of veins and arterys
Why are there no excretory system enemies in games
I ALWAYS THOUGHT MAJORA WAS A NERVOUS SYSTEM BASED ENEMY
Man, I love it when the goddam comedians come around.
I know, but we had neck today only, it was just the structural part today and we're having the functional stuff for next week, and I should also work on histology in the mean time
>'im finally free'
>'i can finally sleep'
>'wait i cant close my eyes'
But there has been. A lot of them.
Andross, Mother Brain, The Master (somewhat), Psi Reavers, etc.
Finally a use for this image
so then we all have millions, billions, of tiny skeletons inside of us?
I still laughed
only because I have a soft spot in my heart for puns.
If someone knows the source of this picture I'd greatly appreciate it.
>HAHA I'm gonna make him so salty
ONLY I HAVE THE BRAINS TO RULE LYLAT
If you wanted more reaction images you could've just asked, anon
You can't get much more autistic than this
>tfw you realize you can't actually close your eyes
God damnit Japan. Even your fursuits are better.
Japs can be pretty committed to autism, in all of its forms
Better. Flay is the skin, he likes to wrap around people and squeeze them to death after forcing them to kill their own comrades. Gristle is the meat and he does equally terrible things to people.
Since I love topics like this I recommend some to read Man after Man. Interesting take on Evolution when the earth doesn't meet standard needs.
Example of early human genetic modification for space
>there isn't a skeleton trapped inside you
>you are trapped inside a skeleton
>Armored skin to protect from debris
>Whiskers to detect atmosphere
>Eyes to catch multiple types of waves
>Long, thin segmented fingers for the grips and grabs
>Ball joints for more versatility
>More closed system that allows unprotected space contact
What does it breathe though...
Use a moment to imagine what is in that picture is what you are. Everything you think or feel is product of that kind of mass.
Your very existence is nothing more than that mass of nervous tissue connected to the biomechanical machine you call your body.
It's a human that was genetically modified before birth to act as a worker for space construction and travel. They can live and work in free-fall of orbit with special eye lids to protect against solar winds and vacuum.
I don't have anymore good pics but it's worth a read if you're into some fun evolutionary theory. Later on we become this
It doesn't delve too much since that particular modified human doesn't even breed. It was created solely for space and as a tool.
>search Man after Man on google
>this picture is the first result
At least I know where the picture came from now
>it was clndemned bu sjw awhile ago
anon are you ok?
Found a good one.
Basically an attempt to keep essential organs going.
>In the future people will bioengineer a new breed of humans so that we can breed and cannibalize them like cattle
What the fuck and for what reason
I've actually thought about something like this, but for blood
Like, you need blood from blood donors, right?
but what if you had, well, people, that from birth where strapped up to life support and shit
they would be fed, breathe fresh air and kept alive, but wouldn't move or see or interact with anything, not alive in the human sense, more like a tree
and you would have many of these, for different blood types, and just harvest blood when necessary
They would basically be a food to blood machine in case we somehow haven't figured out a way to synthesize it, what better than the real deal
Its fucked up, and I don't like that I've thought about it, oh well
We used to do that with pigs for the production insulin, which is now replaced with E.coli for the method of production
I think we'll create another method of generating human blood through other animals or cultivated organs before our morals degenerate far enough
>flying brain with nerves system
>when its touch a victim, it will control his nervous system
>it will give imaginary intense pain in any part of body
>feeling may include burning, freezing, aciding, slashing. crushing, and orgasm if you are /d/
>forcing to disconect will cause shock that can lead to comma
>many of its victim commit suicide or mindbreaked into comatose state
>wearing armor is useless because its small thin neuron can enter the armour gap
>also they can replace your brain with their brain, changing personality of its victim to.. something else
because there is no meat in space and they need a spacecow.
its scary because human CAN do this and its make sense in survival scope. 10000 years in future, humanity is just an urban legend.
That's not the worst of it, because with any other fucked up thought I can just end it with "well yea but its obviously wrong and not moral"
but I can't ignore this one, because it begs the question, these people have never once experienced real human life, and probably wouldn't have come to be if it weren't for this program
they've got no sense of who they are, of the world, of anything around them, heck maybe even their animal instincts are repressed as well
Who are you doing any harm to?
Could they really be considered human without the human conscious?
Is it worse than using animals for our needs, or more aptly, using bacteria and such?
I should stop thinking about this shit
How come there are no respiratory system enemies in games?
That is an archaic view of humanity. We are as much our brains as we are our blood, as we are our nervous system, as we are our hormones, as we are our testicles, as we are our bones, as we are our muscles, as we are our skin, as we are our DNA.
>The system is just the "cables" through which our brains control the rest of the body.
The brain is just a regulator for those cables, which helps fuel the cells. The mitochondria in our cells, which we cannot exist without, aren't actually a native part of the body. They are a foreign organism, complete with it's own genetic material, which has evolved for millions of years within the cells of animals. Without this foreign bacteria, humanity would not be able to reproduce our DNA.
Funny, in a way. Mammalian life has evolved to be entirely dependent upon ancient bacteria. It is almost as though animals are the perfect host as we feed them, protect them and ensure their chance of procreation.
Based on the logic you have presented, "technically" humans are just the "cables" feeding and giving life to cellular level bacteria.
Animal eukaryot cells are far more different from procaryot than plant eukaryot cells. Salamanders and sea sponges (if I recall correctly) have symbiosed the chloroplasts too.
This looks straight up out of John Scalzi's Ghost Brigades. genetically engineered humans adapted for space who act as spies orbiting enemy planets. they look like debris to blend in and avoid detection.
A tall order, but by no means impossible
Yes they are

>tfw i will never live up to his legacy
>yfw no matter where you are, no matter what you're going through, no matter how down you feel

>Tiny bone shards stabbing you in the eye from within your own skull
Why isn't there a game where you play as a skeleton who betrays his necromaster and goes around freeing other summoned skellebros.
Killing any and all creatures who stand in your path and adding there bones to your body to change your stats and abilities.
>The effects of Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva, a disease which causes damaged soft tissue to regrow as bone. Sufferers are slowly imprisoned by their own skeletons.
>Sufferers are slowly imprisoned by their own skeletons.
>yfw you can take more damage from all kinds of injuries
>mfw at the end of the museum they allowed you to hold a brain, heart, and other organs dried out.
>causes soft tissue to regrow as bone
Doesn't that mean that you could just not get hurt ever and you'd be decently okay? Does soft tissue just constantly die? I thought that was just skin.
No but really, would it be painful? It's just...bone right? Like it doesn't hurt to have bone. I feel like it would just be like having impossibly hard callouses on your entire body without being able to move.
But anon, my marrow can't talk.
It would be extremely painful
>compression of soft tissues around it/nearby.
Which means what? That the bone will compress around the tissue causing pain from the pressure or something?
When you go to sleep and wake up there isn't a continuos line of attention/awareness/action. When I considered this, and the fear that children have of going to sleep, I considered what it would be like, from my own point of view if I died and then was reconstructed at the end of time, post singularity. I realized it would be the same, I would simply wake up, as me as as every morning.
The next thing I wondered was how I would be identified through time, and that was when I remembered the theories of affecting by observation, how I am theoretically effecting the quantum foam probabilistically, which is to say that by observing reality I am effecting luck.
This observation vector is more than just my biological systems running. It is the reality that my actions will in the future effect what I am observing, and how this potential travels back in time and alters the outcome of the dice all around me.
So the answer to your question is no, I've got some solid theories behind the resurrection stuff I learned about in Sunday school. Enough for my grown up mind to feel good about reality like I did as a child.
Thank you for asking.
Dear jesus i think im gonna be sick
There are tendons on both the front and back of each finger that are part of the muscles in the forearm (the tendon in the front is pulled, the finger flexes; the tendon on the back is pulled, the finger extends). There are muscles at the sides of each finger too, which gives even more movement.
SO THIS IS WHERE THAT STUPID PICS CAME FROM
the brain is still alive he feels everything
Your flesh is basically a living ooze, engulfing and absorbing nutrients and is constantly regenerates itself from damage. The skin is the membrane which keeps all its liquids inside.
You're an observer seeing the choices your brain took some miliseconds ago.
There's no free will, there's just the observation of a machine taking the right choice while we watch helplessly as a passenger.
Guys, what if your brain remains alive for several hours after death?
Imagine it, your heart stopped beating and you can no longer control your body... You can feel it all though.
You just lay there, unable to move or breathe as you slowly feel the life being sucked out of you.
If your heart stops beating you have a few seconds before losing consciousness, after that it takes several minutes for irreversible damage due to lack of oxygen and fuel and the brain starts to die. You don't feel ant of that since you're not conscious
I take it you never played system shock 2.
this is what the bleak future holds in store
Although you could keep the tissue alive for a while, oxygen and fuel (in the brain's case, glucose and ketone bodies) alone aren't enough to sustain it. You also need to remove all the waste generated from cellular respiration (build up of certain substances like CO2 can change the pH of your blood and kill the tissue), replenish ions needed for actions potentials in order to transmit signals, amino acids to build enzymes and other proteins and pretty much all other vital functions of the cell.
Also, all blood cells (like erythrocytes, needed to transport oxygen) die after a certain time and you'll also need to replenish them.
Wireless sensory infrastructure when?
>tfw you're not even the brain, the brain is just the walls
>tfw you're just electricity
Yeah so I've heard, but it's not some separate entity making decisions on your behalf. It's just as much 'you' as the slower-burning rational aspect that we traditionally consider thinking.
Bypassing the higher analytical aspect of thinking saves time and energy in the vast majority of decision making, we should be grateful that we don't have to stop and think about everything we do.
>tfw when you are particles inside chemicals inside cells inside a nervous system inside a skeleton inside a meat bag on a space rock in a solar system in a galaxy in a infinite universe that will die a inevitable heat death.
From what I gather the universe is finite but boundless, such that there is a fixed amount of matter/energy it but that travelling far enough in any direction you would simply return to your starting point. Then there's all the wacky shit about expansion which appears to be accelerating, meaning that all matter will drift further and further apart for eternity until the universe is a homogenous cold thing.
would a skeleton made of petrified bones be weaker or stronger than a regular skeleton?
If we're talking compared to shitty old decrepit bones, sure, petrified would be stronger.
Fresh, healthy bones? I dunno. Bones have the advantage of being a lot less brittle, weight for weight I reckon they can take a lot more strain than stone, allowing a fresh bone skelly to hit harder without breaking itself than a stone skelly.
Thanks for the laugh anon. I needed it.
