Since this is the closest thing to a /sci/ board that we have, and biopunk is related to cyberpunk I figured I would post this here. This thread is all about genetically modified horse waifus for domestic ownership. What would be the major technological challenges? How close is current technology? What would you want in your bio-engineered waifu?

genetics is magic.

base: human dna, edited with pony dna and cat dna (mlp ponies have cat lije features)

i don't think actual hooves would be apropriate, but very stronhly modified paws. those would look more like mlp pony hooves and could still allow for object manipulation.

wings and horns would be mostly useless.

the colors are going to be complicated, especialy blue hues.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gut%E2%80%93brain_axis
>The gut–brain axis is the biochemical signaling that takes place between the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) and the central nervous system (CNS).[1] The term "gut–brain axis" is occasionally used to refer to the role of the gut flora in the interplay as well, whereas the term "microbiome–gut–brain axis" explicitly includes the role of gut flora in the biochemical signaling events that take place between the GI tract and CNS.[1][2][3]

So the types of microbes in your gut can affect your brain. Does anyone know of any nootropic strains of probiotics?

No idea about what kind of microbes would be the best. I remember something about there being enough neurons lining the gut to give gut feelings.

Do you have source on that? It's not that I don't believe you, but that sounds like an interesting read.

 No.909

>>908
Just looked it up and I'm mistaken about being solely responsible for 'gut feelings' more of a cross and interaction of nervous systems.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enteric_nervous_system
So the digestive system neurons are roughly the total amount in 2/3rds of a cat.
Not even including the microbial biome interaction. Some of the bacteria and stuff also produce enzymes and neurotransmitters and aid in the breakdown of food.
https://www.ket.org/health/intestinal-biome-gut-together/
Also the microbial gene expression and population changes very fast.
https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/the-guts-microbiome-changes-diet/

It looks like proper gut biome at the start (vaginal seeding and breast feeding) (not destroying it all with anti-bacterial medication) reduces the chance of obesity, and allergies.

Just from a quick search, but it looks like most researchers onky have a rough idea on what is going on with specific strains of bacteria.
The best guess is maximize different foods and eat fermented foods.

Let's get a thread going for pre-cyberpunk depictions of the future. It seems like sometime after the cultural revolution of the 60s and 70s it became trendy in sci-fi to imagine grim dystopian end-of-the-world scenarios. While some of these dystopian settings can be interesting or at least aesthetically cool, I tend to prefer more positive imaginings of the future, from a time when Western civilization saw itself as a force for good in the world, before cultural Marxism taught us to see ourselves as a menace that needs to be deconstructed and subdued.

>Opportunity is already buried – all that’s left is to say goodbye. The ageing Mars rover became mired in a colossal dust storm in June 2018, and operators haven’t been able to reach it since then. NASA is expected to announce later today that Opportunity’s mission is officially over.

>In January 2004, two rovers – Spirit and Opportunity – touched down on the surface of the Red Planet. NASA hoped that one of the two rovers would last for 90 days, but this turned out to be a huge underestimate. Spirit roved the surface for nearly six years before getting stuck in a patch of soft dirt, while Opportunity has lasted well into its 15th year before joining its sibling.


>Before Spirit and Opportunity landed, the accepted picture was that Mars was pretty much dry except for its polar ice caps, and may have always been that way. That was overturned when the rovers found evidence for ancient water on Mars – repeatedly.

>Over the course of its mission, Opportunity drove about 45 kilometres, exploring more than 100 craters along its way and weathering bitter cold and numerous dust storms.

>On 10 June, Opportunity sent its last signal to Earth. Since then, operators have frantically sent more than 600 wake-up calls to the rover instructing it to turn on and phone home, testing every kind of spacecraft error that they know how to correct.

>Nothing worked. There was no call home. 5499 days into its 90-day mission, Opportunity is finished. “It’s the end of the first great Martian road trip,” says Seibert.
>Ultimately, the rovers will be remembered for their incredible longevity. “I thought we might get 6 to 8 months on these things, maybe as much as a year” says Squyres. “If a spacecraft functions for 15 years and dies in one of the biggest dust storms Mars has seen in decades, that’s an honourable death.”

I recently found out that Brave just added that as a way of using .onion domains on Brave. As good as Brave is, it's not as secure as Tor. And hell, even Tor isn't so safe since there are small zero-days and issues with security if you're using specific sites regularly enough to be tracked.

China can do it because they do not have the same ethics as we western people do. That's their force. That's why they are doing this, they don't fear the repercussions, if they can experiment on stem cells, embryos or fetus, they have no ethics to wonder if they should do it or not, they will. They do clonage, they test drugs, that's the communist mentality, but is it morally right?
If the moral is to be the winner at some game, let's imitate china and become soulless machines, with AI and cameras, and suicide nests. If the moral is the well being it's gonna be different.

Welcome to the future of shopping, where you pay for your products with not just money, but your behavioral data. Kroger is pushing new tech to try and beat Amazon out in the grocery field, tech that will start to implement population conditioning and mind control. Sound ludicrous? Let's go over the facts.

https://www.businessinsider.com/kroger-microsoft-store-tech-2019-1
>Digital shelves. This system — which originally debuted in the fall and is currently present at the ends of aisles in 92 Kroger stores — eschews paper price tags in favor of digital displays, enabling shelves to dynamically update prices and display other information like ads, promotions, and nutritional details. Additionally, if a customer uses Kroger's self-checkout app, the shelves can recognize when they enter an aisle and display a personalized icon to guide them to products on their shopping list.

Now, with the touch of a button, you can be guided to the item you so desire. But, what if you don't even know what you want? Don't worry, the system has you covered.

>A network of in-store sensors. These include ceiling-mounted sensors that collect data on shoppers' habits


>Additionally, Microsoft's artificial intelligence (AI) can estimate data about customers, such as age and gender, enabling Kroger to serve targeted ads to shoppers on digital shelves' displays while they're in the store. These ads could serve as a new source of supplemental revenue for the grocer.


With the power of AI and spying on you 24/7, we know you better than you know yourself. Having trouble shopping? We will guide you to what you really want. The isle will light up for you, playing targeted ads, convincing you of what you need. And with dynamic price shifting, think of all the things we can do in the future! We can add diversity taxes for the culturally impaired people, discounts for (((members))), and fix the gender bias in product pricing! And it's all just the beginning. What if we take it a step further, and built what you want before you even knew you desired it? What if we guided what you wanted? What if we guided what you think? What if we guided humanity to a better future?

A little late to the party, aren't we?

Data collection and targeted marketing has happened online for a very long time now, why is it surprising that it would branch out to brick and mortar? If anything, the enhanced targeting is just an evolution of what loyalty programs have been doing for decades already. In fact, I expect point programs to be a big selling point to encourage adoption of this system.

>eschews paper price tags in favor of digital displays

And you've officially lost the environmentalist crowd.

>In all seriousness, this will have huge ramifications.

Not really. It's just an evolution of the shopping experience that comes natural with technological growth. I'm sure people complained to the heavens when digital POS systems overtook traditional registers, too.
