This is a fascinating domain of analysis: artificial intelligence, cyber security and cyber crime are locked in a spiralling arc of mutual interdependence and reflexive self-definition, an evolving symmetry of mutual causation. The accelerating hyper-inflation of this logical space is complex, dynamic and non-linear. Asserting core self-organisational principles or symmetries of the self-evident Complex Adaptive…
Simulating the Universe to approximate to an understanding of galactic evolution.
The entities and artefacts we make "in our own image" include the abstractions and patterns through which we understand and organise the world and ourselves.
Cultural change is cumulative self-gravitation.
To brain or not to brain, that is the question...
Death is productive in ways that might never be comfortably acknowledged.
One thing I notice about getting older is the way that things start to get away from you...
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.
Conflict and the means or methods of its execution lie at the center of all personal and (by extension or necessary inversion) collective history.
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" idea, there are only "better" ones.
A logic of communication is stored in material artefacts and its expression and distributed embodiment in culture evolves over time.
