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”

Environment + Space: The Importance Of Bacteria & How Cyanobacteria Create Habitable Atmospheres

We are here thanks in large part to microbes and bacteria. And Cyanobacteria, of blue green algae, are among the oldest organisms around, known fossil records dating back billions of years. Cyanobacteria created oxidation, or photosynthesis, which in turn formed Earth’s atmosphere. Accumulations of cyanobacteria even helped shape the terrain. We are here because ofContinue reading “Environment + Space: The Importance Of Bacteria & How Cyanobacteria Create Habitable Atmospheres”

Quantum Evolution: Human Intelligence & Relativity

The main point of this article is this: Regardless of IQ test or other fixed models, intelligence — including human intelligence — is always developing. And development is not fixed. Generally and Experientially, it doesn’t take a scientific study to figure this out. It takes reason. Consider “non-linear” quantum physics and related and other newContinue reading “Quantum Evolution: Human Intelligence & Relativity”

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”

Bio + Philosophy: Human Physiology Is Technology & Voluntary Evolution

The new modern idea of voluntary evolution is available by making deliberate choices. Yet for all my enthusiasm about this new frontier, one area I’m at odds with is the literal fusion of electronics with the human body. I mean, we’re already fusing with our daily interaction and tech habits — Think on the molecularContinue reading “Bio + Philosophy: Human Physiology Is Technology & Voluntary Evolution”
