    Polytopia , Our Mind Habitat in the Infoverse
    Project: Polytopia
    A project Proposal:
    Polytopia , Our Mind Habitat in the Infoverse

    A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.
    John Lennon

    Space collective has done an amazing thing; it has allowed the initial manifest of a collective intelligence to come forth and shine.
    By that very allowance and acceptance Space collective has proclaimed itself as an avant-garde post of the emerging Polytopia.
    By making available a space, a collective has emerged; many humans, diverse minds, attention-grabbing arts, undeniable intelligence, credible originality, unadulterated desire, sincere care and a sensibility to aesthetics and love of life, barely paralleled in the infoverse, have allowed the initialization of a dream to conjoin and advance the beat of our times.
    The throbbing of our mutual Cyberconsciousness, our contextual awareness and conceptual netizenship is tender and fragile, that is what we feel.
    The geist in the zeitgeist, the character of our era, is being defined as we speak and click, connect and share, post and paste, love and breathe the moment.
    All these lead us to the need of alteration and transformation in the status quo; we ought allow the rhythm of our mutuality to flourish.

    The cadence of the flow of information and innovation in the infoverse demands a response; the surge is rising, bit by byte and torrent by data swell, and it asks for a reply.
    A rejoinder that is informed and humane, intelligent and poetic, ontological and technological, a reply to the coldness of circuits by the warmth of hyperconnectivity, which is how a Polytopia answers the cyber-existential question; it responds by emerging.
    The emerging Polytopia thus responds to the tide of connected feelings by providing a home, a mind habitat for the cyber -sensitive humans. An open-sourced mind habitat, created by passionate minds, in charge of their own evolution, free to pursue their dreams and visions by partnering voluntarily with others for the greater undefined but certainly sensed, increase in well being and combined intelligence.
    Polytopians if so realize that the timing has arrived, the enhanced timing of allowing our cybersenses to expand upon the pregnant pause of reality.
    By firmly planting the roots of the Polytopia we are opening the doors for a better tomorrow that is neither a given nor a certainty.
    The Polytopia offers itself to be the virgin ground upon which the newly born Cyberculture of openness and collaboration, ingenuity and aesthetics upables the mind in its strive for a more attractive form of techno-existence.
    We are myth-creating entities, for good and for bad, yet we need seize the opportunity when a moment in time allows the madmen in all of us to reach beyond the confines of our ephemeral routines of mere survivability, and unfold the myth of a possible future into the extended now, our immediate reality.

    Polytopia is such a liberty upholding worldview, an umbrella meta-concept, which will permit us all to join in the adventure of our scientific and technological oncoming future, without rating systems based on outmoded Neolithic brains.
    Polytopia- a transcultural occurrence, out of this time, in this time, critical and intelligent, sagaciously allowing the upgrade of humanity.
    Let us tolerate our digital fidgeting and create the Polytopia.

    Polytopia , Our Mind Habitat in the Infoverse

    “Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify them, or vilify them. But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”
    Jack Kerouac*

    And on a more personal note, while writing these words I am listening to good old Pink Floyd, Shine on you Crazy Diamond:
    Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Part 6-9)

    Nobody knows where you are,
    How near or how far.
    Shine On You Crazy Diamond.
    Pile on many more layers
    And I’ll be joining you there.
    Shine On You Crazy Diamond.
    And we’ll bask in the shadow
    Of yesterday’s triumph,
    And sail on the steel breeze.
    Come on you boy child,
    You winner and loser,
    Come on you miner for truth and delusion, and shine!

    *many thanks to fellow Polytopian Djiezes for pointing me to this fabulous Jack Kerouac quote.

    Wildcat: I was amazed to see the Here's to the Crazy Ones quote in your post attributed to Jack Kerouac, considering that this famous Apple commercial never gave credit to anyone other than the company itself!!?

    Wildcat     Sun, Sep 14, 2008  Permanent link
    Yes lets do it..
    we need all the support we can get, whomsoever desires to be involved, thats the place to say ay! yeah! or whatever you wish that expresses your desire to help bring the polytopia into existence

    rene: re: Kerouac quote, just checked it, so Goodreads attributes it to Kerouac, however Wikiquote says that it is misattributed. truth be told I do not have Kerouac's book 'on the road' with me and can't seem to find it online, however if memory serves, it fits Kerouac perfectly (more than it fits apple marketing dept.) and I am certain that JK would approve of the open source usage of his quote. so until proven otherwise, J.Kerouac it is.

    I think if this community collaborates and pools its resources, we can make a damn good headway.

    Polytopians if so realize that the timing has arrived, the enhanced timing of allowing our cybersenses to expand upon the pregnant pause of reality.

    Count me in, says I. After following from the shadows the unfoldment of this captivating, picturesque and so relevant proposition, I am certainly won over. I can't imagine not joining in the expanse of a pregnant pause of reality. I think we are fortunate as humans who live at this time, to shape a future so far from our immediacy, that even if it is (and we are) the paragon of hubris, it is well worth the best of our conscious resources. Let our demise be the emergence of that which we were too obsolete to imagine.

    I say yes! we need a grand vision and as of now polytopia seems to present an interesting potential, lets see how it develops
