Have you ever heard of The Lifeboat Foundation? This is what they are all about:
The Lifeboat Foundation is a nonprofit nongovernmental organization dedicated to encouraging scientific advancements while helping humanity survive existential risks and possible misuse of increasingly powerful technologies, including genetic engineering, nanotechnology, and robotics/AI, as we move towards theSingularity.
Lifeboat Foundation is pursuing a variety of options, including helping to accelerate the development of technologies to defend humanity, including newmethods to combat viruses (such as RNA interference and new vaccine methods), effective nanotechnological defensive strategies, and even self-sustaining space colonies in case the other defensive strategies fail.
We believe that, in some situations, it might be feasible to relinquish technological capacity in the public interest (for example, we are against the U.S. governmentposting the recipe for the 1918 flu virus on the Internet). We have some of the best minds on the planet working on programs to enable our survival. We invite you to join our cause!
While doing research on The Energy Crusades, I came across this article from them: 10 Futuristic Materials
That’s a picture of Aerogel, sometimes called “frozen smoke”. There is also an invisibility cloak, metal foam, and transparent alumina, which is three times stronger than steel and transparent. And, if you check out the article, notice the last item, E-textiles. Perhaps in the future we all really will be wearing energy suits.
