Futurama
A really satisfying and intelligent series that is also really funny. Has cryogenic freezing, so it is related! A few emotionally resonant episodes make Christopher cry.

The Lost Fleet book series
A Sci-Fi book series that we loved – thought of it because it too showcases a frozen badass being defrosted and used to beat the “bad guys.”

Show Notes

Criminal Rehabilitation

Rehab or punishment? Synaptic suggestion for true rehabilitation? The time needed for the rehab process in the film. Cryogenic freezing. Stallone says he was awake, probably wasn’t. Better than prison. What if evil dictators had this technology?

Implantable Skills

Huge benefits. Whoah, I know kung fu. Free will. No need for college, just plug in. But who will be the lower class?

Nonviolence

Unreasonable to have a pacifistic society in a world with self-interested human actors? Silliness. Stagnation of martial skills.

Thought Policing

Anything not good for you is bad, hence illegal. Fluid transfer illegal. Can humanity move beyond sex? Maybe after the singularity. Should we even call it humanity at that point?

Future Tech

Communications technology prescience. Video calls on tablets. Self driving cars. Stallone is a curmudgeonly caveman. Cryogenics. Sewer maintenance. No internet? The three sea shells mystery, solved.

Goodbyes

Be well!

Enhance your calm!
