Exploring the concept of cyber-identities, their application, evolution and necessary reformulation "Perhaps it's impossible to wear an identity without becoming what you pretend to be."

Looking at the present from a future vantage point assumes we can project ourselves into an indefinite state of...

This was originally a comment to Shandora's first post. But I just started writing and decided to give it some space of it's own... Consciousness and awareness, are more or less the same thing. If we take self-awareness out of the picture, it doesn't seem too different to the computers we use today - they are able to respond to changes in...

Recently I came across a very interesting article by Timothy Lenoir, bringing a fresh perspective on the concept Singularity and posthumanist future. In the introductory note Lenoir writes: Most researchers agree that there is no reason in principle why we will not eventually develop conscious machines that rival or surpass human...

The Serious ARG (Alternate Reality Game) In a 2007 article, columnist Chris Dahlen (of Pitchfork Media) voiced a much-discussed ARG concept: if ARGs can spark players to solve very hard fictional problems, could the games be used to solve real-world problems?[37] Dahlen was writing about World Without Oil, the first ARG centered on a serious...

“A philosopher’s ontology is the set of entities he or she assumes to exist in reality, the types of entities he or she is committed to assert actually exist. Although in the history of philosophy there are a great variety of ontological commitments, we can very roughly classify these into three main groups. For some philosophers reality...

The world as we know it is in disruption. Maybe it's always been in disruption, pushing us through cycles of apparent chaos so that evolution can continue and new paradigms emerge. Thanks to social technologies, we're growing into a globally connected communication system, and seem to be heading towards a tipping point. But what is it that we're...
