      Excessive loud noise
      I was enjoying a night out with friends. We went to a loud concert and I made the mistake of standing right next to a big speaker. I came out of the show very distressed because I had maddening ringing in my ears so I went to the ER. After about a half hour of waiting, I was called back. After I told the doctor what happened, he performed an audiogram. I had moderate to severe damage to both inner ears. He took me to the 5th floor where I lied on a cot and was put to sleep. I woke up to complete silence and my hearing was better then it was before. They put me under this machine which was kinda like a CAT scan but instead of taking pictures of the brain, it emits this green light on the ear and the auditory cortex. The light shines through the ear and regenerates the damaged cochlea while normalizing the auditory cortex. It took 10 minutes. On my way out, he told me that I was lucky because 100 years ago, there was close to nothing that could be done. People were stuck with the noise for life in hopes that it would go away on it's own. Ah well back to clubbing!

      Love it! But the way things are currently going, the year 2116 might be a bit optimistic! };-)

      Sailboardman I hope we are wrong. I lost faith in this issue hitting the mainstream but when you look at all the underground stuff going on with rtms, brain implants, tdcs and all the other strange electro therapies theyre experimenting with, dirk de ridder and his research time out of belgium, the pending results of the vns trial last year, sf0034 and many other trials im sure we are unaware of, i really try to hold on to hope that silence will be restored to all of us in the future. If not silence, at least a noise that can only be heard in dead silence.

      this is possible.

      also possible that we won't actually outrace climate change/food scarcity/engineered retroviruses, and the few people that are left will live in caves and not remember how nuclear reactors or TCP/IP telephony works.

      my point is, just do whatever you can to enjoy the world as it is and the moment in time you're in, because you can't change it. equanimity.

      @Dubbyaman. Otonomy, might be on to something also? They've got 4 products, that look interesting and maybe promising?

      In 100 years from now, the amateuristic audiograms from the 1970s will no longer be in use. That much I can tell you (about the future)...

      It is like this Star Trek episode where, after travelling back into 1960....70?, the doctor is commenting about the archaic methods used in the hospital he is in at that moment.
      Every now and than I allow myself fantasising about this. Not too often.

      Or the scene in woody Allen's movie "Sleeper," where two doctor's say something like, "they thought smoking and eating red meat, was dangerous to your health a 100 years ago."

      That's a bad thing, people need to die or the world will be overpopulated and everyone dies

      If all diseases can be cured, we are in deep shit!

      If that's the case shouldn't all of us with T voluntarily euthanize ourselves for the betterment of the "healthy" people?

      Don't underestimate humans. Humanity will always find ways to destroy other people's lives. There are still wars to be fought over trivial things.

      Aside from that; if we ever reach the technological level where we can cure all diseases and are honestly willing to do so with the greater good (instead of monetary gain) as the only motivation, one would say colonising a new planet wouldn't be too far a stretch either.

      "Luckily" curing all diseases will not happen as long as we are in an outdated monetary system where value is based on product scarcity (formerly real scarcity, now often artificial). That will have to go first so all barriers are lifted and we can make some real unhampered progress as a species.

      If you only knew how much technological progress is hampered just because it isn't "lucrative enough" in a monetary sense, one could argue we would have been much more advanced as a civilisation without the barriers of a monetary system.
