"The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed. It was the experience of mystery -- even if mixed with fear -- that engendered religion. A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, our perceptions of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty, which only in their most primitive forms are accessible to our minds: it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute true religiosity. In this sense, and only this sense, I am a deeply religious man... I am satisfied with the mystery of life's eternity and with a knowledge, a sense, of the marvelous structure of existence -- as well as the humble attempt to understand even a tiny portion of the Reason that manifests itself in nature." Albert Einstein

    i have been mulling over ideas of this nature rather vigorously as of late. one of my early influences was Huxley's "island", which is rather antithetical by definition, but lays the groundwork for what an implementation could look like - namely being the now small-town cliche "think globally, act locally" - and is, in general, an inspiring thought experiment on social evolution (or if you will, intelligence-based social systematics) and the possibilities for communities based on alternative paradigms of thought.

    with the ubiquitous embracement of the internet, it is becoming increasingly difficult for individuals to maintain perspectives that do not correlate with real-time broadcasts, reports, videos, photos, INFORMATION, etc. and, even harder than maintenance will be the establishment of rapport with other individuals whom do not share views based on fixed, limited, or selected pieces of information. as technology continues to bridge the gap between our own nervous systems and the digital networks surrounding us i expect the reality-disconnects that plague our current state of global consciousness to diminish greatly.

    >>>>sideTRAK: this could very well be an issue an neuroplasticity regarding the adoption of digital networks as valid pathways of thought. this can of worms is too big for this post////endTRAK>>>>
