Organo Genesis ~ Living Technology
"The robot is going to lose. Not by much. But when the final score is tallied, flesh and blood is going to beat the damn monster." ~ Adam Smith

[link to www.youtube.com]



Unlike the type of technology that we humans have been created with, in all of its natural biological perfection, the technology that we outwardly create into the world reflects our imperfect way of being. Today's human manufactured technology, which grows evermore intuitive, comes with the promise of the end user beng able to do more work. As this march towards complexity drives onward, for the first time humans are at risk of becoming enslaved by the very tools which they have created in very overt yet barely noticeable kind of way. Our robots are forming our behavior to being more task oriented robots ourselves.

Could you imagine the force which created human beings, being enslaved by its own creation?

That's precisely the scenario that's playing out right now on our little pale blue dot, in a microcosmic sense. The above scene from Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey" is a metaphorical battle between good and evil. Good being that which wants to live and be free, evil being that which fears because it is ignorant. In this thread we'll explore the two types of technology in that context. The 'naturally occurring' human technology that is well established and taken for granted, and the rapidly growing offspring of human creativity, modern technology. All while we sit in the bleachers and watch as the singularity between man and machine approaches.

Re: Organo Genesis ~ Living Technology
"Multi-tasking can be defined as making a virtue out of doing three or four things at the same time without paying attention to any of them. The very machines that are supposed to free people from slavery to busyness are driving them to mindlessness. We need a basic reorientation in the relationship to our machines.

For any mature adult, high technology is, by itself, terminally boring. Disconnected from the deeper aspects of life, technology for technology’s sake is like talking just to talk—an empty enterprise. The interesting question has to do with how we integrate the emerging technologies into our lives.

Underlying that issue is the age-old question of what it means to be a human being. Ironically, as technology sweeps everything and everyone before it, its rampant development is pushing this question to the fore, driving ordinary thinking and feeling people to explore questions that were once only the realm of philosophers."

So I had a excellent conversation the other day....with my telephone.

Not someone on the phone. But with the phone itself.

Re: Organo Genesis ~ Living Technology
The Mazeway Re-synthesis

Humanity has many belief systems which influence the many groups within the human network. Our individual beliefs system form around collective belief systems influenced by society and by media. Could it be that social technology is enabling the human network to create a new belief system?

When a small group of people experience a change of belief system, and if they persuade others to share it, they become new prophets of change, if they fail to persuade others, they are discounted and labeled by society. Many new belief systems are incompatible with the old, and results in small crowds and followers going to a new “promised land”. This accelerates the process of colonizing vacant territory, and therefore both the capacity to develop a new belief system, and the capacity to be persuaded to switch to the belief system of the prophets of change, becomes a mazeway resynthesis of beliefs.

Mazeway resynthesis’ is the change in belief systems that occurs from prophets of change, the mazeway being to the individual what culture is to society, so that the prophet awakes to a new reality which he or she then tries to impart to followers; if successful, the prophet becomes the leader of a new movement; otherwise, he or she is alienated from the network of people clinging onto the old belief system. Sound familiar? Those social media preachers within and outside the traditional organization are the prophets of change attempting to create a mazeway resynthesis with those who believe in the meaning and significance that social represents.

Re: Organo Genesis ~ Living Technology
There's that yearly contest to see if a computer can mimic humans well enough to evade detection. They get closer all the time. Computers now beat all humans at chess. Not because because they play 'better', they just go through more combinations and remember them. The machine can't 'play'.

I had to laugh one time while I was messing with a computer for music and my idiot roommate told some friends that soon (that night) we'd be 'jamming' with the computer. What a moran.

Trouble is soon, if not now, we won't be able to tell the difference.

Plus, how do we tell when the human has joined the machine? Does a hip replacement count? Artificial heart? A refrigerator that learns when you want beer?

At what point does the borg consider us assimilated? What if I get an electronic memory enhancer? How about then?

I like your threads Bowman.

Hey Him Again.

I keep my chess games set on novice so as to not bruise my already battered ego. And I still lose sometimes. chuckle

I think that once humanity 'links up' again, this time we won't need to do too much manual labor in order to achieve what it is that we want to achieve. I think it's a question of population and critical mass. When a zygote reaches a population of 32 cells, a change occurs in the zygote structure. Extrapolate that out to replace the word 'cell' with 'human'. We just did reach a population of 7,000,000,000 (a multiple of 32) humans late last year, which was preceded by social upheavals in the East and West (Middle East Uprisings/OWS). Perhaps these social uprisings are like the shockwave of change that's followed by the actual metamorphosis on the planetary populations level? 1dunno1

Robopocalypse

"In the near future, at a moment no one will notice, all the dazzling technology that runs our world will unite and turn against us. Taking on the persona of a shy human boy, a childlike but massively powerful artificial intelligence known as Archos comes online and assumes control over the global network of machines that regulate everything from transportation to utilities..."
