Every act of creativity and recombinatory cultural reconfiguration is both additive and subtractive – it is an addition of complexity and structure and is simultaneously the systemic logical negation of existing methods and strategies of organisation and thought.
Broken things and imperfect people are often far more interesting than are complete and whole ones…
We find ourselves endlessly aspiring towards procedurally patterned symmetries of refinement in an iterated and accelerating aspiration towards beauty, knowledge and control.
You can not be whole for the same reason you can not control the world – there is at base no controller, knower or self and this is the greatest unacknowledged enigma of our world.
Coming conflicts will be won by those who can most effectively, efficiently, continuously and adaptively rebuild themselves and their ways of life through successful negotiation and engagement with the recombinatory logical evolution of information and energy from which biology, humanity, technology and civilisation have emerged.
There is no “best” theory, there are only progressively “better” ones.
Corporate power in the technology domain is a complex cartography but it is not indecipherable. It takes intelligence and subtlety to address the problem of autonomously self-propagating information systems that have grown too large, too fast and in all of this speed and runaway self-replication represent something of an atavistic return to a state of accelerated reproduction which in cells occurs in (or as) cancer.
Falling into emptiness…
There is no “best” idea, there are only “better” ones.
It’s binary. Everything is information.
For a Universe to have spontaneously emerged from nothing may be an alternate view on the the same fact as that it has always existed. It is not the logic which fails so much as the implicit (or apparent) boundaries of our own minds.
Do we make our own luck or does luck and the blind power of statistical necessity make us?
