    We do not need salvation we need a transparent and complex enough interface

    If there is one particular view that apparently describes the actual reality of the infosphere, it is that it is not one coherent whole.
    There is no such thing as ‘The’ Electronic frontier, there are many frontiers incorporating simultaneous experimentations on many fronts at the same time.
    The infosphere is a bio-electronic ecosystem growing and branching simultaneously into all sorts of directions, some of which are clearly delineated others being obscure and fuzzy.
    However even if the frontier is not one but many fronts the critical component we can describe is one of increase complexity in hyperconnected infocologies.
    The following bullets relate my perception of some of the developing attributes of complex hyperconnected infocologies, some of these are already at play, others are yet to come.

    This is a thought in progress and represents the initial thoughts of part 3 in the series " The rise of the Cyber Unified Civilization"

    Hyperconnected intersubjectivity could become the science of the future, that is the promise and potential amplification of our complex hyperconnected infocologies.

    Mutual, co-dependent and hyperconnected intersubjective relationship is the manner by which the future of identity is evolving in complex infocologies.

    Nested multiplicities, fractal like in appearance, emergent by property, correlated by hyperlinkage, attributed to many, shared by all, expanding indefinitely, allowing multiple virtualities to surface concomitantly.

    Complex hyperconnected infocologies are naturally ambiguous, defy hierarchy, inherently agile and adaptable, and are uniquely capable of generating novel insights and solutions to fundamental problems.

    The organic natures of infocologies permit manifold kinds of beings to co- exist and co-thrive simultaneously, multimodal sensorial directions are allowed via hybrid technologies.

    Structural integrity in complex infocologies is maintained by intertwining flows, folding upon themselves origami like.

    Cultural transmission frameworks are complex infocologies in which designs emerge with no pointed designer, content and opinion merge.

    Hallmarks of complex hyperconnected infocologies and possible implications:

    1. Super-distribution and hyper-distributions: super and hyper distribution of datainfoknowledge implies that knowledge is obtainable, accessible and open and cannot be contained.

    2. Multi thronged info dissemination: implies that the evolution of infocologies has no distinct direction; infoflows reject design and evolve ‘naturally’.

    3. Diminishing Alterity and Normalizing Multiplicities: implies that the otherness of the unknown in complex infocologies diminishes as hyperconnectivity grows (increase in number of nodes), multiplicities increase exponentially and are distributed across multiple domains.

    4. Self editing: implies the increase in micro narratives, edited in real-time by complex iterative formulas under the aegis of the end user, onion like self referential systems are walled with multiple available access keys allowed to different users at different times.

    5. Multi-thematic micro narratives as semantic virtualities: implies that the identity of the distributed selves apply a knowmadic* perspective to themselves, thereby allowing an indefinite number of simultaneous (at times even conflicting) personas to proliferate in different infocologies at different times; in turn, the distributed selves are reflectors of chosen micro narratives as part of an ever increasing intertwined flow. These micro narratives are inherently multi-thematic and thus imply the virtualization of ‘the personal story’.

    6. Variability and mutability: implies that complex hyperconnected infocologies are inherently unstable and irregular in their content, no central focus implies mutability of personas in infocologies; reflectors need real time actuation of ‘follow the flow’ of a given identity to keep track.

    7. Non-linear integral simultaneities: implies that as asymmetries grow both in content and in context, the simultaneity of important and relevant interests increases in non-linearity; nodes dynamically connect and re-organize according to flows of relevancy defined by criteria of forms (instead of semantics), these forms in turn define the meaning of the micro narrative involved in a particular theme, in a characterized infocology. (by that implying both the motive and expected behavior)

    8. Self-similarities and asymmetrical continuities: implies that the motion of flows in complex hyperconnected systems flushes out self similarities (within given context variables) and creates asymmetrical continuities that continuously urge a reconnect, this also is what drives the motion of the narrative.

    9. Randomized conceptual serendipity: implies that growth and innovation in complex hyperconnected infocologies is not to be designed but followed in a conceptual self-reflective state. The coincidental sense thought production or emergence will permit the poetry of self description to project both in C-space and M-space, the divide being eliminated via the creative act of self differentiation (freedom).

    10. Flow periphery awareness: implies that in complex hyperconnected infocologies social sensorial modality rules the application of filtering and bias. The flow of intertwining enmeshed content de-focuses the mass of info-data into a shadow like perspective of the state of affairs of the identity at play. In this condition the content is perceived only as a peripheral impression of note according to the criteria set in real time- this also correlates to point 9 (Randomized conceptual serendipity) and may provide the foundation for further insights.

    11. Stream alignments non-alignments: implies that flows of interest and relevancy rotate on an axis self description (of the defined interest of the micro narrative in a given infocology at a given time) that carries no loyalty of alignment, this allows a liberty of and from friction (born of incompatibility of interests at different times).

    12. Cascading surfaces of perception: implies that complex hyperconnected infocologies do not lend themselves to centralization and hierarchical orders, the rhizomatic nature of multiple self differentiation implies a dynamic reactivity of surfaces of perception, these become dimensions of comprehension, when such occurs relevancy re-contextualizes itself into clarity of action. Cascading surfaces of perception designates the state of affairs of perception in real time hyperconnectivity.

    13. Trust mutuality flow: implies that trust in complex hyperconnected infocologies denies directionality and continuous over simplification of self micro narration. The trust born of relevancy and interest emerges as a source of mutual reflectivity between involved themes, identities and narratives. These are exemplified by acts of openness and co-creation; intersubjective co-dependency ensues.

    14. Multiple identity proliferation: implies that in a complex hyperconnected infocology no identity is singled out as describing or indicating the particular beholder involved in a given infocology at a given time. Each and every identity with its access codes and filtering biases is a semi-independent creature of the infocology in which it resides, there is no sole entity presiding over the overall set of micro narratives.

    15. Disappearing act of content creators vs. beholders: implies that in complex hyperconnected infocologies content and context lose their original pointed distinctiveness, gaining in the process a new set of topological formation. Beholders (and not consumers) mesh transparently with content.

    16. Real time reactivity: TBD

    17. Fluctuations of attention centering: TBD

    18. Dynamic on the fly restructuring: TBD

    19. Uncertain attribute allows articulation of the diverse: TBD

    20. Synthetic mutualities become natural info-niches: TBD

    21. Attractors randomly appear and disappear: TBD

    22. Simultaneous singularities converge, merge and disperse: TBD

    this is very well done. i've reread it several times now and am able to connect points to other things i'm thinking about with each new reading.

    keep going.

    I agree. I want to find out more about Knowmadism!
