The "bootloader" marx wrote for communism is retarded and will never work.
Socialism instantly turns into kingdom, it don't evolve into communism.
But if you try to directly make a commune yourself and make one that "interacts with capitalism" just like it would with a coal mine or something, it might just work.
Of course you need to be careful to not let your commune just turn into a corporation, the line is pretty thin.

Dunno what to call it but the ability to transfer and store human brains within small computers, allowing people to change bodies, multiply, revert memories (snapshots), travel to the future instantly, cut out or intensify sensations at will, interface with other devices (e.g. web search, remote control, conwuming content), or live entirely in VR with a simulated body. Just like the book Schild's Ladder or Manna.

This is the future. We've lived for hundreds of thousands of years. Take the entire human race history as one day - in the last couple of seconds the industrial revolution happened. We've literally just made computers.

VR only provides escapism in the short term, bread and circuses for the starving ever growing masses and offers some utility.
The vastness of space offers prosperity in the long term even if limited to our own solar system. A blank slate, a new wild west with endless possibilities.

nothing, we're wasting ressoruces faster than earth can renew them, no amount of fuckbot or SAO-like trash can remove this thought from my brain
we're wasting so much ressources because softwares are awfully slow and noone is batting an eye, fagman are harcoding lifespan into every device and nothing is done about it while we get fined if we drop a paper in the street and mister officer saw us on a camera, truly depressing
imagine being at stage 3 of a cancer you already have only 4% chance to survive from but you're waiting to be in phase 4 to start worrying about it, this is awfully retarded and everyone would agree on that but somehow it's different when billionaires made 3.9 trillions during the pandemic while 200 millions people dropped from middle class to poverty and overall middle and lower class lost more than 3.7 trillions dollar, there have never been such massive transfert of wealth, ever.
the tech I unironically want to exist is an engineered virus to actually kill more than half the world population, as poor people we hold the keys to our future, billionaires and politicians need us, we don't need them but people refused to act on it and I'm starting to believe we deserve to be poor as it's some sort of autoimmune disease we inflicted upon ourselves, we used to behead cancerous individuals, not anymore and I doubt tech will ever be able to solve this shit.

There is no scientific reason to believe people have any kind of special unique essence; that is tantamount to believing in mystical souls.
