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,...

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...

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...

Human beings versus machines, or machines as instruments of human designs? The answers to these two questions would have been obvious years ago: Human beings, of course, machines are instruments of human design! But now days when we speak so much of progress, science and technology as if progress, science and technology were in themselves...

This is part I of a two-part post on my thoughts on the Polytopia. In this first one, I will aspire to present the challenges we will face in Polytopia. In the next post, I will examine possible vaccines and counterpoints that could be built into the architecture, as well as possible constructive uses that could help all of us...

Get between 5 and 50 writers from space collective to each write chapters for a book, to then be collaborated and edited together and plausibly published. Most probably online. To go with the whole spacecollective thing some kind of science fiction springs to mind, or possibly modern philosophy from the perspectives of so many great young...

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...

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...
