Are you ready to have your mind blown? What if you can't count on another intelligence to speak your language? How do you communicate your accumulated knowledge? This is essentially the problem facing terrestrials in search of life "out there." We can take a clue from a past culture so strangely advanced (even by today's...

I've been wondering about mind uploading. If our mind can be fully uploaded to a non-biological operating platform, and we do invent the necessary hardware requirements to house one, what will that machine have to do to convince a user to adopt it? If the subjective experience remains fundamentally private and unique, how could uploading be...

Human progress : first it was exponential, then climate change brought it down to linear, until our energy capture capacity brought everything to a slow and final halt. It took hundreds of years past the third world war to finally reach our carrying capacity. It is a state in which we let all go to waste, smothered and drowned in petrochemical...

The culture of environmental sustainability is unstable since it requires energy to be actively diverted to halt the growth of the technosphere. As long as human ingenuity exists to combat the slow retaliation of the biosphere, the technosphere will continue to grow and to consume the native biosphere. At this time practically no pristine...

"Of course, foretelling the future in detail is impossible. But just as you can use Newtonian math to predict where a shell will land from a gun, so I think with Fractals we can now predict the shape of what will come."

What does the Rational Choice Theory tell us? Well, basically its assumptions are that human action lies at the heart of society, and that individuals, as social actors, are the ones who can choose to act. This immediately raises the question of social level outcomes, one that could only be explained by a theory on how human actions interact in...

If two parties can not agree to the following five principles of debate, then the debate is unlikely to reach a correct and reasonable conclusion. Even with these principles in place, a debate may be unsolvable, as evidenced by apparent paradoxes in the perfectly logical and rigorous framework of mathematics. 1 : Both parties must be open to...
