Infinitely Random Encryption Seeds

Context: The Puzzling Search for Perfect Randomness I can never resist a good speculative and completely “out there” waffle.  Randomness is non-trivially significant in cryptography. The closer the approximation of a numerical sequence or the properties of an abstract geometrical object to randomness, the more difficult the encryption seed derived from it is to crack. […]

Impenetrable Online Encryption: Logic Seeks to Differ

An encrypted internet for all? An impressive technology, to be sure, but the nature and the essence of this game of information assurance and technological systems is surely that – not only does a ratchet up the ladder of sophisticated security add complexity (and an associated information entropy regarding degrees of freedom) to a context […]

Encoding Culture, Encrypting Identity

Conjecture: We are encoding culture but we are encrypting identity. It is not well-understood – partially because those procedural mechanisms and autonomously self-propagating waveforms (or functions) of patterned information that manifest as, in and through ourselves must also protect themselves and their own aspirational continuity. If it were immediately apparent how mental worlds and cultural […]

WhatsApp: Communications Vectors and Political Momentum

Self-organising cultural, political and communications-system architectures tend to rapidly capitalise upon and exploit technical tool-sets, vectors or opportunities when they appear…

Cultural Recursion

We are witnessing the perpetuation of systems of rule and information transmission in which our own biological, psychological and existential biases lead us to mistakenly identify ourselves as the primary components (and purposes) of this process.
