It is a little hard not to feel somewhat dispossessed and saddened by the arc of catastrophe that human history traces in time. There is some essential adversarial turn in psychology and nature that provides and requires the entropy from which new forms of thought and life are able to emerge. We come to depend…
Complexity is a lot smarter than we are - all of our ratiobal interdictions into behavioural and sociological problems tend to amplify by displacement those problems.
We build machines to define ourselves but in neither do we find the certainty or the completeness we seek.
The international society of nations, such as it is, is not very often seeking clever solutions to the problems that it itself is generating, across all countries and conflicts. Each instance of dissonance is a microcosm of a global property of discontinuity, a distributed planetary discord that is oblivious to nation or ideology and that we all are dealing with, wherever we are.
We are sentient nature.
The entropy of difference provides discrete patterns of information and thought with the energy, complexity and momentum they require to self-propagate.
Going with the flow of natural law and optimally-concise emergent complexity proves to be an intractable enigma for the collective geopolitical neurotic atavism of our world.
We are all, each and every one of us, "creative types".
To brain or not to brain, that is the question...
Conflict and the means or methods of its execution lie at the center of all personal and (by extension or necessary inversion) collective history.
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.
A characteristically long and wordy waffle on the topic of human intelligence, the cognitive hyper-extension of technology, an iterative fracture of grand narrative into abbreviated artefacts, unconscious biases and a Global turn towards authoritarianism.
