The Future of Intelligence

It has not been static in the past, and will not persist in its current form into the future. Why the Global Brain needs a Therapist. The idea that the world itself could be considered an overarching form of mind can trace its roots deep into the religious longings of pantheism- the idea that the universe itself is God, or the closest thing we will ever find to our conception of God.

Why the Global Brain needs a Therapist

In large part, I find pantheists to be a noble group. Any club that might count as its members a philosophical giant like Spinoza, a paradigm shattering genius such as Einstein, or a songbird like Whitman I would be honored to belong to myself. SEMANTIC FUNCTIONS THEORY The Language of Collective Intelligence. Minding the Planet: From Semantic Web to Global Mind. Draft 1.1 for Review (integrates some fixes from readers) Nova Spivack (www.mindingtheplanet.net) This article presents some thoughts about the future of intelligence on Earth.

Minding the Planet: From Semantic Web to Global Mind

In particular, I discuss the similarities between the Internet and the brain, and how I believe the emerging Semantic Web will make this similarity even greater. The Semantic Web enables the formal communication of a higher level of language -- metalanguage. The Global Brain, the Semantic Web, the Singularity and 360-2020 consciousness to create the Web of WE: socially-voiced co-creation - un knol de 刘Twain. Video Introduction F irstly, thank you for your interest and I hope readers will contribute their own considered analysis and gut intuitions here intelligently, regardless of whether or not they agree with these postulations and the presentation of them. Secondly, I’m looking forward to our interactions and building upon this model together. Thirdly, I have the flu whilst I write this so my own brain may not be optimally functioning! Six Global Theories of Mythology: Part Six – Myths express the Unconscious Human Mind.

The Human Mind The Sixth Global Theory – Myths reflect Man’s Unconscious Mind After the intensity of the progression of mythological theories in their investigation into the psychology, values, phenomenology, history and rituals of any particular civilisation or society, the Psychoanalytical Theory of myths was inevitable.

Six Global Theories of Mythology: Part Six – Myths express the Unconscious Human Mind

Freud’s ‘Interpretation of Dreams’ investigated the link between the language of dreams and mythological symbols based on the tribal belief that dreams and myths arise from the same reality. Freud (1856 – 1939) believed in a transhistorical and biological conception of mankind and furthermore that myth expressed repressed desires. The Omega Point [Jason Silva] The Omega Point and Life in the Universe. How long can life survive in the universe?

The Omega Point and Life in the Universe

Can it evolve forever, or will the third law of Thermodynamics lead to universal heat death? Apparently there might be some ways around this fate, if intelligent life is sufficiently clever and tenacious. Essentially life has to adapt as the universe grows older, changing itself to be able to survive when the stars grow cold. The Hivemind Singularity - Alan Jacobs. In a near-future science fiction novel, human intelligence evolves into a hivemind that makes people the violent cells of a collective being.

Slime mold network formation (Science). New Model Army, a 2010 novel by the English writer Adam Roberts, concerns itself with many things: the intimacy shared by soldiers at war, the motivating powers of memory and love, the rival merits of hierarchical and anarchic social structures, the legitimacy of the polity known as Great Britain, the question of European identity. How Much Longer Until Humanity Becomes A Hive Mind? I'm skeptical of both the feasibility and desirability of this.

How Much Longer Until Humanity Becomes A Hive Mind?

There's a lot of risks. 1) identity loss—-whose thoughts are you really thinking, when you're enmeshed in a telepathic network? A Metathinking Manifesto. The significant problems we face today cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them. – Einstein For several years now, I’ve been studying the intersection of technology, culture and communication, the impacts of social media, the relationship between creativity, innovation and design, and the potential of various futures.

A Metathinking Manifesto

I’ve had this gnawing sensation at the edges of my mind that all these areas were held together by a common thread, but I couldn’t put my finger on the connection.

Leading research and model-building on this phenomenon is occurring at the Global Brain Institute in Belgium. The following blog series is in preparation for my Ph.D. work on the Global Brain. Are search engines and the Internet hurting human memory? The following is excerpted from Clive Thompson’s book Smarter Than You Think: How Technology Is Changing Our Minds for the Better, out now from the Penguin Press.

Are search engines and the Internet hurting human memory?

Is the Internet ruining our ability to remember facts? If you’ve ever lunged for your smartphone during a bar argument (“one-hit father of twerking pop star”—Billy Ray Cyrus!) , then you’ve no doubt felt the nagging fear that your in-brain memory is slowly draining away. As even more fiendishly powerful search tools emerge—from IBM’s Jeopardy! -playing Watson to the “predictive search” of Google Now—these worries are, let’s face it, only going to grow.

Leading research and model-building on this phenomenon is occurring at the Global Brain Institute in Belgium. The following blog series is in preparation for my Ph.D. work on the Global Brain. I would like to create a new perspective on our evolutionary history which combines evolutionary anthropology and cybernetics. What Is The Global Brain? The Internet: You Are Here The Global Brain may sound like something out of a 21st century science fiction novel. But it is actually a concept that first emerged in the social and biological sciences during the late 19th century. A few evolutionary and social theorists were realizing that the entire human system was itself behaving. There were interesting underlying patterns that seemed to be structured and self-organizing in an analogous way to a biological organism.
