Question Can writers create books, movies, songs and video games at the current pace forever?

Or does the well of ideas eventually run dry?

Or, to put it another way,

How many humans can be created before faces start becoming identical?

I wonder this a lot.

In startrek they watch Shakespeare, and I think that's someone's way of saying that entertainment will go bye bye in the future. All they listen to is classical music.

The question really is, do you think people will want to watch/read the same story over and over and over, if they just keep changing the characters?

As we progress to mars, will watching the same story, but on mars, be enough for us to want to watch that story?

We all loved the matrix, and it blew our minds big time, but it was just literally Alice and wonderland.

As we expand to speak with other aliens, will we be interested in someone telling the same story but based on what we learned from the new aliens?

I honestly think that we actually will. So I think, yes, they will be able to forever.

Another thing I think about is, maybe movies will feel more like books, and there will be a new holographic platform or cyber metaverse VR way for the masses to enjoy the same stories the way we have movies as the main story device instead of books since the invention of the film cameras.

Like, at the very least, there will always be enough creators, and citizens to sustain their own niche interest in story telling.

Unless the Georgia Guide Stones get their way and reduce the population to some manageable level, in which case no, there will be no stories in that world.

Right, so you think humans can create movies forever if aliens are cool with it.

What would happen to this fantasy addicted society if all of the writers and performers decided to suddenly quit all at the same?

The answer is never.

Creativity is a divine characteristic written into the human soul.

We were created to create. We always will. Even in heaven (for those that didn't go into the lake of fire) we will be a part of an eternal ongoing creation process.

Even if all the great creators died, their works would live on to inspire, and pure inspiration (though rare) is possible and new works would come about even if all the great ones were lost.

How funny would it be if humans were exterminated because we made peace with an alien species.

Made a movie about it, and basically burnt their Koran in it on accident.

Then they just obliterated us in an instant over it lol

And that was the end of our story.

So it's possible to create an unlimited amount of drop dead gorgeous humans each with a unique face?

You been keeping up with machine learning? Literally the only thing it is accomplishing at great leaps forward is creating art. Wiring stories. Basically it excels at all the things we thought would separate us from the machine [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

well, considering in 1 million years, this is likely what a beutiful unique face looks like because of evolution, maybe?

It's the evil ones who appear to be the creative ones so there would not be any creative people in heaven if evil people go to hell which means no celebrities in heaven either. Or, in heaven, everybody gets to be creative (not just the few) so in heaven everybody would be a celebrity.

If creativity is a divine characteristic written into the human soul then from the looks of things a crap load of humans are being deprived of being their true selves (creative) while a small group of obnoxious proud 'humans' sing and dance in front of a camera.

Some people being this and some people being that is illogical.

It should either be everybody or nobody not both.

Tricky question. Define gorgeous. Define unique.

For the time the universe and humanity will last we only need some billions of faces.

If you simply added up the number of facial features and assume each one could have 100 variances of each feature then worked out the math... it'd be yuge.

Color, size of eyes, size of pupils, number of freckles, location of freckles, color of freckles, shape of teeth, size of teeth, whiteness of teeth, etc etc etc.

Let's say you got 100 features and 100 variations of each.

100 ^ 100

I think that's roughly 99,999,999,999,999,996,973,312,221,251,036,165,947 ,450,327,545,502,362,648,241,750,950,346,848,435,5 54,075,534,196,338,404,706,251,868,027,512,415,973 ,882,408,182,135,734,368,278,484,639,385,041,047,2 39,877,871,023,591,066,789,981,811,181,813,306,167 ,128,854,888,448
