Here's what you inspired me to write today:
In all our asking about,
in all our defining of --
that network of responses -- we find
the macro consciousness
emerges from the search
engine as itself, intelligible,
I like what you are doing. I also think there's much more room to explore here, especially when it comes to the unrestrained futurism on display. Like books worth of exploration.
We, the neurons
demand of our esteemed institutions
of the unrecorded, the unsearchable,
the offline and the encrypted
information, in other words known
information, as sacred
in the face of the ever steady march
towards a concept
of absolute consciousness
that of an utter explosion!
Some immediate questions: how does capitalism and it's tendency to concentrate power in certain cases (eg: military industrial complex) fit into your vision of decentralized everything? What is the organizing principle integrating the disparate parts? In the brain, we have the self-model as subjective experience -- maybe it is Google? Given so much of our individual identity, behavior and experience is set in the stone of reality, and given a future without limits, what could be our anchor?
