CEO is the new word that means master. Its the person who owns the business that tells the slaves what to do. But the slaves can choose from many masters, so no master owns them. They can slave to walmart, burger king, a gas station, or many others. So how can they be a slave if they can choose not to obey the commands of any specific...

Occupy the Future I found the facebook page through a friend. https://www.facebook.com/occupythefuture?ref=ts&sk=wall#!/occupythefuture?sk=wall The page was fresh up, and it was defined as a "community". I tried my hardest to take part in the "community". But all my comments were auto-deleted. This is simply a...

Summary: Society seems to be forfeiting sanity when a side-effect of the denial of death brings a spirit back to settle the score, and both Stone, a transhuman researcher, and Park, a wrongly convicted undercover operative, must solve the mystery before the struggle for dominance falls to the supernatural. "They're breaking into the...

Starting from the need to agree on a list of demands, the Wall Street protests have formed their own government. They call it a "General Assembly". They vote on amendments to their list of demands by raising hands and counting. They have leaders but the function of the leaders is to count votes, act as news reporters, and propose major...

This weekend I experienced a snowcrash; a moment where the seemingly disparate pieces of information floating in my head came together. A synapse fired, a new connection was made, and I was brought to a new level of consciousness, a new way of seeing the world. In reading this over, it almost sounds obvious, but it took me a while to get here. I...

Extremely more power will either go toward the 7 billion people equally or toward the corporations. This is the real deal.

What is now known in reality today is based on given information. The majority of people, places, objects, items, are all known through the shown. To be shown is to be perceived through an interface, i.e. TV, computer, internet, image, video. Accessible as reality through a medium outside of perceived space. Where the accessibility of information...

I've been teaching non-art/design undergrads for a few years and the one question I get every single year, innocently, is "What is art?" My responses have been philosophical and abstract, probably leaving them as baffled as before they asked the fateful question. In a way, I avoided answering the Question. This year, I've found an...

To know or believe anything, is to go back to the initial principle of perception, and to take reality as physical fact. Though it is within this area of study, that scientists, physicists and theorists are deciphering the root of perception, and questioning if what is seen, is reality as we know it. If you were to measure a distance with an...

We are living in a time of uncertainty and insecurity; We cling to what we have, yet we are surrounded by false projections and illusions of a mortgaged future. We are transforming towards a genuine love and understanding of beauty and this will reveal all that is possible. Society is beginning to harmonize with the idea that deeply-fathomed...

Just as the essence of perception is not sensing objects but apprehending them, even if we can only apprehend them through the mediation of sense, so the paradigm of a real world is not its sensible imaginability but its intelligible apprehensibility. I do not mean by this that anything which can be conceived by the intellect is thereby shown to...
