Project description

The human species is rapidly and indisputably moving towards the technological singularity. The cadence of the flow of information and innovation in the infoverse demands a response. As hyperconnectivity increases, our minds are becoming progressively more coupled and cybernetically...

Everything is real but the narrative makes the difference. “We belong to a history that runs in the present. This is a fantastic thing! We belong to a history that runs in a continuous changing present. Yesterday is not now, tomorrow is not now, but we exist in a continuous NOW... we human beings, all living beings, the whole biosphere....

"The psychology of the mature human being is an unfolding, emergent, oscillating, spiraling process marked by progressive subordination of older, lower-order behavior systems to newer, higher-order systems as man's existential problems change.

Enter: The Transbeing Frank Herbert wrote that: “The beginning of knowledge is the discovery of something we do not understand.” And of course who in his true and integrated mind will not agree to this statement? So let us start or begin our knowledge of the coming singularity by observing the prediction wall that is in front of us, the...

We are, as specie, vastly underestimating the speed with which we are approaching the moment of singularity. Though it is true that most of us have heard about or are involved, to this or that extent, with the coming technological singularity, it is also true that the vast majority of those involved are underestimating the immensity of the change...

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...

Optimism is a political act. Entrenched interests use despair, confusion and apathy to prevent change. They encourage modes of thinking which lead us to believe that problems are insolvable, that nothing we do can matter, that the issue is too complex to present even the opportunity for change. It is a long-standing political art to sow the...

I have been thinking about the goals of this website. Are we trying to create a heaven in space? This would seem to me to be a worthy goal, although we as a species have made a pretty miserable job of making any sort of heaven on earth. This seems to be the achievement of certain individuals, some of whom we may have met or read about and...

Your inputs, essays, papers, links, suggestions, comments and sharing are the lifeblood of a collaborative effort to ascend. Intelligence is being amplified as we speak Let us make the Polytopia happen Welcome Wildcat

I really enjoy my carnal existence; eating, drinking & exercising. But strangely I quite appreciate the idea of living forever - despite all of the negative connotations associated with it - what if this "Polytopia" was to be a hyperspace - kinda like second life, but controlled in the first person by our electrical selves,...

On and on does the lattice grow, information flows, and our minds converge, into a single, fiercely independent, decidedly autonomous, highly intelligent, and self-propelling emergent metaverse, the infoverse. The infoverse is where we will live. And we need a home. A mutually supportive habitat of sorts; A mind habitat, an infotat for our...
