The Future of Intelligence Cadell Last, Adam Ford
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. 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
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. 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.
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 | Once Upon A Time… 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. 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.

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? SExpand Last month, researchers created an electronic link between the brains of two rats separated by thousands of miles. This was just another reminder that technology will one day make us telepaths.
Noogenesis Noogenesis (Ancient Greek: νοῦς=mind + γένεσις=becoming) is the emergence of intelligent forms of life. The term was first used by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin in regard to the evolution of humans. It also used in astrobiology in regard to the emergence of forms of life capable of technology and so interstellar communication and travel. Teilhard

METAMAPS.CC and the Global Brain At Metamaps.cc we’re passionate about facilitating self-organization – its what drives our experience design, and the features and functionality we’re focusing on building out, step by step. I’ve been following along with the work of the Global Brain Institute and the Evolution, Complexity and Cognition Research Group since 2009. Their research is headed up by Francis Heylighen, one of the foremost researchers and academics exploring collective intelligence.
World Brain World Brain is a collection of essays and addresses by the English science fiction pioneer, social reformer, evolutionary biologist and historian H. G. Wells, dating from the period of 1936–38. Throughout the book, Wells describes his vision of the world brain: a new, free, synthetic, authoritative, permanent "World Encyclopaedia" that could help world citizens make the best use of universal information resources and make the best contribution to world peace.
