I am Human becoming
A Transhuman to be
My existence transforms itself through multiple substrates

I am flesh of evolved genetics
Technology cyborg robotic
Digital virtual and neural simulation
Networked information itself

Yet I retain sentience through all my transformations
I travel among the stars at the speed of light and now faster still
I am now immortal but not eternal
Not all powerful for I still make mistakes, always learning, always exploring

Time is only a measurement to me, I control my rate of consciousness
I allow myself to feel happiness, sorrow and compassion
Respect for my origins, my emotions, so…


What would an uploaded human mind be able to do?

Assuming hypothetically that we could achieve such a feat, and that we don’t digress into arguments of whether it actually has a soul, or the same identical fidelity as the original. Or just how long it would take to do such a thing? Or whether we should do it, and many other such debates.

I ask again, what would just such a human uploaded mind be capable of? What are it’s parameters? Maybe it’s possible to guess.

Let’s assume a human mind is uploaded to a significantly powerful computer system…


I would like to tell you about one of the things I’m the most proud of as an app developer and why I consider my app one of the most useful and successful apps out there.

The app started off as an idea to help a good friend who was hospitalized and lost the use of his voice due to a medical condition. To help him I developed an app which used computer speech synthesis to speak for him when he touched software buttons on his iPad.

At first my friends hands where so shaky and weak that he missed…


I love blogging. It’s my public journal to the world.

I also love technology, and one of those techie things I love is VR. Virtual Reality spelled completely out, with headsets and how-tos, working code examples, all wrapped up in a VR blog with regular posts and free articles.

This is the absolute best I can do. Helping people get started in the fun, exciting and fast pace world of VR inside the browser! You can also help me to make the internet VR enabled. Actually create the Metaverse (i.e. Oasis).


Important Code Update:

I wrote a previous article in which I described where to begin with VR in a browser. This took the popular A-Frame Hello World and extended it a bit, with environment and the ability to move around in that environment with the VR controllers, teleport, etc.

Now this article will go much further. We are going to include JavaScript which can select and activate actions on objects in our VR scene. This will include some cool tracked animation with a quacking duck! A 3D model of the duck will loop on a track around us. When that…


Perhaps you want your own VR office. It’s been a dream of mine since I read cool science fiction novels back in the 1990s. Or maybe you’re an artist and you want to showcase your artwork to others around the world? Or maybe you want a private virtual space to meet others with similar thoughts, to discuss in your own private virtual reality forum?

Supposing you “don’t want to have a Facebook-controlled virtual space”, but one of your own. You have decided not to base it off on some other social VR platform’s walled garden. Of which there is a…


However the blog, server, and art gallery are mostly complete. Check it out at https://funbit64.com #VR #WebXR #Metaverse #Aframe #OculusQuest2

For someone who has been thinking about the Metaverse/Cyberspace/Matrix/Oasis for 2 decades, it’s about time it became hyped! As you know, hype cycles eventually lead to disillusion, and then finally normal adoption. I guess we are finally inside the hype cycle. SO let’s get serious, the Internet with a capital I is a mass of globally interconnected computers sharing common protocols. So if you are familiar with the OSI model you know that protocols build on top of each other. You don’t even have to download an app! Today’s killer app “is the browser”, because with one of those you…

Social VR Art Gallery in an island setting.

Every entrepreneur knows that when new technology comes along, or matures, it can lead to a disruption of older technology. That disruption is a double edge sword, good for some, bad for others.

I’m not trying to injury the physical galleries, artists or staff. I’m only trying to provide a new and different means by which producers of art can share, display and sell their art to customers globally online in virtual reality.

I’m not going to get into the details of how to do e-commerce or business plans and models; this is mostly a demo technology article. It displays…
