technically poverty cant be solved, unless everyone is 100% equal in money. so there will always be poverty. its naive to think so.

And that my friends, is COMMUNISM. HAIL LENIN.

Any economist would tell you that, in order to solve poverty, limited resources must be made unlimited and available.

yeah i was doing something a while ago and they said for that we would need some sort of cornucopia device, which is impossible. so yeah pretty much spot on there

Funny you mention cornucopia...
Some chaps at MIT or something or other invented a food printer named "The cornucopia". It would help making food easier to transport I guess...

We don't know what we can't do, because we haven't tried everything. For one to make a goal without specifying methods for achieving it leaves one with infinite possibility for both failure and success.

well for that sort of thing to be created, we would literally need to create and shape matter. which we cannot physically do. there are limitations to everything.

How do you know we can't shape matter? We currently have the know-how to change the proton count of an atom. We can add electrons, neutrons--who's to say we can't do so on a large scale? You certainly aren't.

Realize that a many of the goals that science has already achieved were thought impossible by people in the past.

Consider the see-through metal that was attained by bombarding titanium with alpha particles. Scientists were astounded! The clear metals seen in Star Trek were thought impossible by a large scientific following. Turns out you just have to discover a new state of matter for it to be possible.

Who knows what else can be achieved? Certainly not you.

even if any of this is possible, there is no way we will be able to develop it on such a massive an infinite scale. also matter maybe changed and reshapen, but in no way could be copied. however, make matter out of something as energy. still i doubt we could do any of this anytime soon

Well, the sooner the better. And who knows?
