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...

Say this blanket represents all the matter and energy in the universe, okay? This is me, this is you, And over here, this is the Eiffel Tower, right, it’s Paris!

Science fiction authors Richard Morgan and Greg Egan have described mind uploading and “backup copies” as a practical technology for immortality. Of course, “carbon chauvinists” often speak against mind uploading, and some have interesting things to say. The perils of mind uploading In The Perils of Mind Uploading, science fiction...

ARTIKELN/KONFLIKTEN JAG NÄMNE FÖRUT Den artikel som jag pratade om förut har jag nu letat fram. Händelsen handlade om konsteventet Art of the Streets, en slags turné från Riksteatern där de åkte runt i Sverige med typ en buss för att informera om graffiti och även ha workshops och liknande för alla som var...

Summary: A space junk reclaimer discovers that a synthetic species has decided to brazenly and briskly takeover Megacomplec and replace humanity which had finally arranged itself into a utopia of automated megacities on several planets. The conflict is between Bunks' preferences for future conditions or his life. His limbs are having more...

Start your own revolution
Going by the standard of supply and demand, a Human life is worth as much as it costs to save the cheapest Human life, unless some people are worth more than others. I asked how much it costs to save the cheapest million Human lives on average in and indirectly explained how peoples' actions and what they think it costs contradict. Here is...

Time does not flow, as space does not flow. We move through time and space as a single unit. We interact within the moment and with the objects occupying the space around us. The Images seem to be frozen in time and existing within a predetermined space. We end up capturing illusions of our own perceptions. Our memories can be distorted,...

There is a long ongoing discussion about the financial systems which gained even more momentum following the recent financial crisis (AKA credit crunch). Many voices are being heard, almost all throwing terms and slogans arguing their perspective to be the ultimate one, fast to show the errors of other perspectives. Socialism, Capitalism...

from neurons to self by Rodolfo R. Llinas This essay arose out of a set of talks given at The University of St. Andrews in Scotland, where Professor Glen Cottrell had graciously invited me to give the American Alumni Lectures in 1989. Little did I know then that St. Andrews would be back in my life, when, in 1998, my son...

Part One: Elation The city seemed to move—swelling, as though engrossed and enraptured by its own primal rhythm. People, shapes—figures and cascading blurs wrapped among themselves—drifted and were shook apart as though figments of some imaginary lightplay, distant memories of a fleeting and forgotten past. His mind lingered and fell...

I've been thinking about how identity passes through ubicomp environments and the types of experiences that could occur in such a relationship. We each carry a digital ID in our smartphone. This ID is a key that grants access to voice, data, location, acceleration, and other information both in the net and in our devices. These handshakes...

There are a couple of popular beliefs concerning altruism, both with extensive history and cultural bias. Some people think it is a core aspect to a good life, and selfishness is abhorrent, in my opinion this is an incoherent statement, and reflects the point of view of many others, that true altruism does not exist and what many call altruism is...

A response to Jonathan Franzen's "Liking Is for Cowards. Go for What Hurts": The re-contextualization of technological devices within the framework of sexual love is an incredibly fruitful pursuit. This consciousness, taken broadly, enables an erotic reintroduction to everyday life that might be previously unbelievable to the...

One month after the introduction of Google+, the debate on "real vs fake identities" goes on.
