I’ve watched last week “ Transcendent Man” - the documentary about Ray Kurzweil, his life and ideas. For anyone who read the book “The singularity is near” or watched one of his lectures in the recent years there is not much new in the film. While I’ve got a lot to say about Ray Kurzweil and his work (maybe in another post) I would...

When I think, study, learn, or even act (or try to), I do so under the pre-supposition that the past - the classical - is better than the modern. In the simplest of explanations, I would argue that modernity is embodied by decadence and stupidity. Of course, this doesn't apply to all, but for the most part, the world in which we move on a daily...

I believe in the importance of using our imaginations in our daily lives and that a highly refined imagination is an incredibly valuable outcome resulting from the daily attendance of ones inner landscape.

SYDNEY: It’s not dark matter, multiple universes or weird gravity: the strange deceleration of the Pioneer spacecraft is just waste heat – the trouble is nobody’s looked at it the right way, Portuguese researchers report. Known as the ‘Pioneer anomaly’, the unexplained deceleration of NASA’s two Pioneer spacecraft, Pioneer 10 and 11...

In this post I try to fathom an informal definition of Self, the "essential qualities that constitute a person's uniqueness". I assume that the most important requirement for a definition of self is time-consistency. A reliable definition of identity needs to allow for time-consistent self-referencing since any agent that is unable to...

I started taking these nootropics back in February - One was citicoline, the other aniracetam. For those who are unfamiliar with nootropics, they're generally defined as drugs & supplements that you can take which are supposed to improve your memory, attention, and other cognitive functions. They are used as a current treatment and...

September through December 2010 was my first semester of education since I left high school in 2007. In one of my courses, Contemporary Issues, I wrote a paper (a very short one) entitled "Why Computers Do Not," which was meant as a counter to the hopelessly superior article by Marvin Minsky of MIT "Why People Think Computers...

An antenna dish, large and unwavering, sits in a valley of old-growth trees whose bark foretells the legacy of layering and unlayering, whose silent constructions shape and determine the confines and apparent boundary-points of the natural world. Long live the flow of boundless energies: that focal point of nature whose gift predates the workings...

Oh how the collective intelligence of the members of this website blows my mind...

Sorry if this is a newbie question, but can someone tell me the difference between past and future? I've never experienced time from past to future, as many people say they do all the time, and I'd like to try it. How will I know if it worked? Here's what I've heard from people who claim to have experienced time: * There is a lot more...

A man can do what he wants, but not want what he wants. — Arthur Schopenhauer Free will does not and cannot imply without cause, randomness or unpredictability. All those qualities, although present in complex systems, would contradict the notion of willful intent. What we want, and therefore do, must be based on reasonable ground....

The Peaceful Resistance Whenever I'm feeling blue about domestic politics — there is plenty about which to despair — something great happens that reminds me of the long-term case for optimism, which is all about the astonishing expansion of the division of labor globally and in ways that weren't even possible just a few years ago.
