    The picture you linked to me was Bosch-like but doesn't fit too well to the description of Bosch here (it isn't that crazy/surreal) so this is fairly accurate in that sense.

    Gotta love those Putins.

    This is really amusing. Especially for me, cause I study Art History.
    The real thing works actually like this: You look at as many pictures as possible and with the time you learn to recognize the artists. To distinguish a real painting from a forged is a little bit more complicated. You can use the Morellian method for that. But forgers use it, too, that's the problem. :/

    Ha, I was wondering who this was (Pieter Bruegel).

    If we ever reach nanotechnology, is the originality even meaningful?

    Yes. If the painting is just a copy it's not worth as much as the original.

    If they are identical, you will just keep in mind which is which and claim it has a higher value?

    Yes, because they are not identical. One has a history and that history defines its value. Not the material or the beauty of it.

    Very humorous. I'm partial to art from the Renaissance and even took an "Art of Italy" course back in college, when I was a studio art major for a year. Much of my own artwork, and love for art in general , was inspired by the Renaissance Masters.

    One last question, would you go to a Star Trek transporter assuming you will rematerialize from different particles?

    Here's a related SMBC comic.

    Ha?... I doubt something like that will ever work. Maybe you can rematerialize something, but why should it still be alive? I think what will be rematerialized is a dead body.

    So you believe that life is something outside the material world and that we are more that biological machines. But we are already able create synthetic yeast so I guess this applies to something which has a "soul" or something.

    I'm sorry, to be honest, I don't really understand it. I don't much about biology and it's not written in my native language. Makes it difficult. I still think the bodies would be dead, but maybe they could be reanimated. I think, it would be a very complicated and expensive method...

    I see you're having a chat with talking "semidual" wristwatch, kadda.

    Haha, great thread Lungs.

    Now this is a story all about how, my type got changed, turned upside down. Just wait for a minute and watch chatbox right there, & I'll tell how Gem became the moderator with blue hair.

    In typology central friended and praised, on the picture thread was where she spent most her days. Chilling out, selfies, relaxing all cool, And all typing some people and getting them schooled.

    When a couple of girls who were up to no good, Started annoying her & her friends in the forumhood, She got in one little flame war & got pissed off & said 'I'm moving in with that exboyfriend in the forum with the socionics toffs.

    So Gem pulls up to the forum for a year without being a hater, And yells to typocentral 'Yo creeps! Smell Ya later', Became a mod in her kingdom she was finally there, To sit on her throne as the mod with blue hair.

    I majored in Biology(before and after majoring in art) at my university, and even after studying chemistry and physics during that time I do not think that life can be explained by physical laws alone. I mean, obviously physical laws are a significant and extremely important component, but I do believe there are forces that animate or direct life. In other words, life is created by both physical laws and unobservable phenomenon and energy. Humans cannot create life from scratch, but from DNA and other molecules that have already come into existence through ways that are not understood. Personally, I think organic molecules are manifestations of energy that become matter in order to create life. Life cannot "become" without a vessel for existence. Making a vessel, whether it is a yeast cell or some other cell, only creates something than can either mimic life, such as A.I. or captures and harnesses the forces that make life possible, the forces that animate us all. In the latter, the cell really would be alive and posses life energy that could develop further. I don't know, that is how I see life. It is something greater than the sum of its parts. It is how I see the world through the lens of an artist. I have no proof, only intuition.

    Interesting. I just don't really understand for what reason scientists want to create artificial life? For organ transplantation like in that movie "The Island"? Do you know what's the reason behind it?

    I do not know, but I suppose much of it is a quest to discover the true nature of the observable universe. Maybe it is to overturn the worldviews found in religion and strengthen more modern ones? Maybe it is just some people suffer from a mixture of insatiable curiosity and a dose of God complex.
