The Magenta Cube: My Experience With VR

Around the time I started back in on reading GEB: an eternal golden braid by Douglas Hofstadter I experienced a very vivid sculptural dream image. And it’s not unusual for me to have unusual dreams because I actively engage my creativity in waking hours. The sculptural scenario that I saw in the dream was ofContinue reading “The Magenta Cube: My Experience With VR”

Tech + Art: Paintings By AI

This above post video features AI generated art that’s amazingly unique. From my limited experience with “artificial intelligence,” I’m blown away how beautiful these new mind-expanding perspectives are. I think to approach the possibility of sentient technology being threatened — that’s been a human limitation. In a way humans are also artificial intelligence, and fundamentallyContinue reading “Tech + Art: Paintings By AI”

Tech + Evolution: Exploring Network Intelligence

It’s not unreasonable to say that networks that continue to grow increase in intelligence — that’s more or less how we got here. What began as elemental cosmic forces brewed up a concoction of microorganisms that then banded together to create larger and increasingly more complex organisms that branch off and do different things, andContinue reading “Tech + Evolution: Exploring Network Intelligence”

Eco + Finance: Photosynthetic Money — Hard Currency Meets Carbon Removal

There’s so much money in carbon removal these days that even money itself could get in the game by becoming part of the new wave of green materials science. After all, there’s still plenty of physical currency. And The US Department of Energy has invested a lot into artificial photosynthesis R&D: https://www.energy.gov/articles/department-energy-announces-100-million-artificial-photosynthesis-research That’s right —Continue reading “Eco + Finance: Photosynthetic Money — Hard Currency Meets Carbon Removal”

Sound + Genetics: Activating & Limiting Genetic Expression Using The Harmonic Series

Bodies are affected on multiple levels by the forces of nature, and one of those forces is sound. Sound waves are considered mechanical because they require a medium like air or water through which to travel. Sounds results from vibration in matter. When you speak, that’s moving air through the vocal cords. The decision toContinue reading “Sound + Genetics: Activating & Limiting Genetic Expression Using The Harmonic Series”

Using Augmented Reality For Medical Testing

The next humane frontier for medical and scientific testing is Augmented Reality or Virtual Reality. As AR becomes more realistic thanks to companies like Meta (Oculus) and Microsoft (HoloLens), this will indeed become viable. That means advanced simulations and no further need for live subjects. Not only would the tech be cruelty-free, it would alsoContinue reading “Using Augmented Reality For Medical Testing”

Longevity⁺ Corner: What Is An NRF2 & What Foods Does It Like?

NRF2 stands for Nuclear factor-erythroid factor 2-related factor 2 —say that 10 times fast — and is a “DNA transcription factor” protein that regulates and enhances how genes are expressed by binding to it. It’s a complex other world inside the human body, yet perhaps we can understand better by comparing with the outer worldContinue reading “Longevity⁺ Corner: What Is An NRF2 & What Foods Does It Like?”

Tech + Environment: Plasma Arc Gasification & Vaporization / Sublimation Trashcan + Receptacles — Revolutionizing Waste Management

I have a rudimentary design of a trashcan that uses a laser in the process of vaporizing / gasifying or sublimating waste to either produce ideal byproducts like even Oxygen or Water, or quite “simply” keep infinitely re-energizing the process of the can! Fortunately these methods are up & coming in waste treatment plants. ButContinue reading “Tech + Environment: Plasma Arc Gasification & Vaporization / Sublimation Trashcan + Receptacles — Revolutionizing Waste Management”

The Dept Of ID: A Mineral Map Of The Solar System

What feels like way back in 2020, I explored possibilities of space mining with this drawing. It represents all the possibilities out there without having to carve up the earth. Robotics would no doubt come in to play with dangerous mining operations. However, since I made the drawing I have been researching the synthetic mineralContinue reading “The Dept Of ID: A Mineral Map Of The Solar System”

The Sunday Investor: Future Vision

In order to experience a sustainable world environment, it’s necessary to promote the free flow of technology, ideas and resources. The most important technology to adopt first on a large scale is that of green electric energy. Far from being a new concept, it requires no further justification. Switching modes of energy should no longerContinue reading “The Sunday Investor: Future Vision”

“…discover first hand the eternity of Life, Light, and Truth, as well as the illusion of Death, Darkness, and Sin… Though the modern world may know a million secrets, the ancient world knew one–and that one was greater than the million; for the million secrets breed death, disaster, sorrow, selfishness, lust, and avarice, but theContinue reading “Activating The Ageless Algorithm (full article)”

Activating The Ageless Algorithm, Part 4

04. Growth When beliefs and habits change so do biology and outer reality. The universe is a body in motion and so are we by default, yet with increasing choice, and integration of infinite and multidimensional concepts. There are other concurrent levels of reality that we cannot directly see, like the life of our cellsContinue reading “Activating The Ageless Algorithm, Part 4”
