Magic Box - End of Copyright

I wrote about this 2 years ago, and if you read my last post, this is the summary of that one thread i couldn't find. I'll patch up the missing links between the 2 at the end.

Here we go:

Imagine this, South Korea invents a machine that is 10 feet by 10 feet by 10 feet.
In this big metal box there is a Vertical divider, basically one empty space on one side, a wall, then another empty space on the other.
Now you insert whatever you want, food, materials, money, computers, and after 2 days, you get an exact copy.

Do you know what this means?
We could end hunger by using thousands of these machines to send food to millions of people around the world.
Free computers.
Free equipment.
Free everything.

What do you think would be done with this machine?

I think it would be banned and prohibited from EVERY country in the world. Why? Because profits would be lost from corporate America.

I see pirating in the same way. Pirating HELPS the artist, it gives him a wider fan base, allows the music to be distributed faster. Same with software, especially open source, where then you can take the software and improve it.

I think pirating is banned for the same purpose, it's a step forward for technology, and yet it's banned because it takes away corporate profits.

If you look at the bigger picture though it helps all people in general.

Just like that machine I mentioned before, It's able to clone ANYTHING, do you really think the U.S would allow it to exist?
Even if we had the technology now, wouldn't governments be doing everything possible to stop the creation of such a device?
Wouldn't this device help the world over? Stop hunger? Be the answer to all our dreams?

Sadly the cause of the E.u.l.a's(End User License Agreements) and the over charging is all from one source:

Corporate America and Big Business.

Pirating is the result of it and of our technological advancements.

There is a war going on right now and i stand with the consumer and the greater good for the greatest amount of people.

People will have to take sides soon and eventually the machine I mentioned will be made, it will be up to you to allow its creation or destroy it.

Missing part of the summary:

How the machine works:


The reason why this has two compartments is so that it can scan the original object you want to copy. It will understand everything about it and know all it's basic working parts in the matter of 1 day. On day 2 it will begin creating parts from dirt and then using those parts to make an exact replica of your original item.

It uses either solar power or anti-matter as fuel. I can't say which now because i don't know the energy demands of such a machine, so i can't say solar power would meet it's needs. The most powerful form of energy though, that we know of so far, should be able to power it, even if solar can't right now.

It requires only dirt as an input. There is a big tank that is at the side of the machine that holds this dirt.

Why does it need dirt at all?

Well we're cloning after all, so we need matter for the clone, where do we get the matter?
If i have one microwave and i want another one, i need material to make the second one with, this material is the dirt.

So how do you transform dirt into a microwave?


Everything is the same at a subatomic level. We all have protons, neutrons, and electrons, and they serve as the building blocks to everything.

Yes we're starting very small lol, but we need to :D

So what this machine does is it takes the dirt and manipulates it, it changes the number of protons in the dirt to match the material it needs.

Does this microwave need some gold? Well then lets manipulate this proton of dirt here, from such and such protons, to 79. There, now we have an atom of gold.
We'll now keep making atoms of gold till we have enough and then make a new substance.

This machine will continue to manipulate the protons and electrons of the dirt until it gets the basic materials it needs, once it gets those materials(the building blocks) it will then start to put them together in the right order, working more precisely than a surgeons hand.

So there we go:

Dirt + Fuel + 2 days + original = Copy of original a.k.a Clone.

You now have a second microwave to do with what you wish.

This is not fiction, but future reality, not if but when.


Now the interesting question, what are the consequences of this device, and would governments usher it into society or ban it away?

To usher it in, is to wish for the best of society.

To ban it is to wish for the best in Corporate America.

It would answer the one underlying question that no one seems to know but we all feel, is America starting to become fascist?
