Technologies used in classrooms should be researched before they are used. I think using untested technologies in classrooms is unethical.
I've grown up in the age of technology, and I can say personally that there is no real tesing you could do. The tech is implamented into schools today not forcefully, but as a resourse to help the kids. Were calculators beta tested for schools? Laptops? Ipads? The most common answer is no, and yet we see the kids using them, not just to do the assignment, but to also gain vital experience with a part of adult life. I can say without a doubt that I can opperate a laptop a hundred times better then I could in 11th grade because in my 12th grade year my school upgraded from old aces to microsoft computers and now I can operate new computers, tablets, move around the internet, all without remembering or even giving a crap about what the lesson I was using it for was about.

global unity project.
It is a nice idea, but we are only a small part of the 7billion people in the world. If you are going to try to unify the world you have to be someone of influence so that your idea will be taken seriously, and two you need something that people will unify under, like religion. Christian calls for unity of middle eastern contrys, you might get shot, but if a prominate figure in islam calls for unity, they might have a chance, same with christianity, budahism , the idea of freedom of religion, ect...

What if we create a national direct voting system using the internet?
This has been proposed and often linked with direct democracy. You idea of a national advisor comidy made of the people is interesting and could probably work small scale like for states, but for national level the results would go to the lobbyists and maybe never reach the rep. Politicians are crafty that way, even the ones we don't vote for

Direct Democracy implementation built using a new monetary system
Ok I am confused on 2, you can't price anything more than it took to make? This suggests time equal in value to money and the distance required to bring that material to the person making it is irrelivant. Also, the dollar backs a lot of things inthe world, but the united states would have to have a heck of a better econy for the entire world to use it.Your math in 4.1 seems... off.

Is a thought about the expansion of the universe.
I disagree that if every atom in the universe was shrinking at the same time, it would look farther away. We are made of atoms so we would be shrinking at the same rate and our vision would go just as far perspectivley because the distance to the edge itself is shrinking at the same rate.

Movement for indefinite life extension: Why, why we should think we can and what we can do to help get there.
Some of the major problems I have with this is: 1. We have no way to completely stop the ageing process, even in basic cells. 2. The world has a carryingcapacty. Now yes we can raise the capacity with technology, but even that can only go so far. With no deaths, our population would increase with no barriers and the world would be over run within decades. 3. Is it ethical to keep someone alive indefinately? Consider how many religions promise rebirth or heaven after death. 4. Sickness. If the disease and hunger was eliminated from the equasion, then the popation as a whole would live longer.

GOD vs SCIENCE
well is not all religion made by humans? if we believe in an all knowing god, that does not mean that we know all, so we can make sometimes wrong assumptions.
