Why will living forever never be possible?
Seriously though, it appears to be an abstraction layer on top of the various public cloud APIs. So you could conceivably define an instance in OneOps and deploy that in Azure, Google Cloud, AWS, Helion, etc depending on your needs. I'm not sure how practical that will be in the real world though.
Well first, build a datacenter...

It's not clear what the implications are for signal loss or if this is more of an illusion akin to beam steering.
You set some good deadlines but humanity has an opportunity to transcend these limits.
"Technological level close to the level presently attained on earth, with energy consumption at 4×1019 erg/sec (4 × 1012 watts)." Guillermo A. Lemarchand stated this as "A level near contemporary terrestrial civilization with an energy capability equivalent to the solar insolation on Earth, between 1016 and 1017 watts."
"A civilization capable of harnessing the energy radiated by its own star (for example, the stage of successful construction of a Dyson sphere), "with energy consumption at 4×1033 erg/sec." Lemarchand stated this as "A civilization capable of utilizing and channeling the entire radiation output of its star. The energy utilization would then be comparable to the luminosity of our Sun, about 4×1033 erg/sec (4×1026 watts)."
"A civilization in possession of energy on the scale of its own galaxy, with energy consumption at 4×1044 erg/sec." Lemarchand stated this as "A civilization with access to the power comparable to the luminosity of the entire Milky Way galaxy, about 4×1044 erg/sec (4×1037 watts)."
Another rub on the Patriot Act, or rather the Patriot Act extension, is that it was not signed by the President. The extension bill was the first bill ever signed into law by the "autopen".
Article I, Section 7 - Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States; If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it. [...]
So it says "he shall sign it", not a robot. Is it law?
