1. Hey Guest !

    Welcome to the new Higherside Forums. To start participating, you'll need a password for the system. You can get one established by clicking the "forgot password" link, and a URL to create one will be sent to your THC+ email. Your username should be the same, but these are now two independent systems. As a result, changes to your THC+ username/password will not be reflected in your THC Forum username and vise versa. Also, as a bonus, your ability to participate in the forums will continue beyond the life of your THC+ membership.

    Enjoy the upgrade! Users can now make a full profile, start conversations (private messages) between each other, give and track likes, utilize trophies, conduct polls, write public statuses, comment on statuses of others, subscribe to forums, receive alerts, see latest activity, share media, and much more!

    Read this book (published in 2016) when it first came out & was blown away by it. Has a Sci-Fi vibe, but was written as a kind of "policy paper" (author is a legit/credentialed intellectual) which studies the ramifications of a near-future world (sometime in the next 100 years) in which people's minds are uploaded into computers. Including a TED talk & book review.
