David Pearce – Hedonism & the “Pan Species Welfare State”

I think David Pearce is trying to escape something in his pursue for imagining a sort of (blissful, ultra positive) emotional utopia. Where alla species are free from suffering. Something he calls the: Pan Species Welfare State But I can understand that, because where there is no understanding of youth, aging, life and death there is only ...

Swastika – History, Symbolism, Use and Misuse

First, let me put things in perspective. We have religious symbols of the Abrahamic religions that have been used in wars, aggression, genocide and all kinds of prosecutions - spanning over 2000 plus years. Just reading the Old Testament or the Quran and you'll find plenty of genocide and hateful mass murder. Now, let's compare ...

2 explanations for the computer simulation theory… in short.

The computer simulation theory can only be natural in a fractal universe/multiverse theory. In that endless explanation we would have computer simulation within computer simulations, where one universe is created by another and none of them dwells in the ultimate reality. But even in that possible explanation we would have the question of where it ...

Telepathy and mind control from the film ‘Brainstorm’

I just watched an almost forgotten sci-fi classic called Brainstorm. The story is about advanced research on telepathy and mind control that evolves into a secret black operation within the military industrial complex - code named Brainstorm. That's the setting where the main character, Michael Brace played by Christopher Walken, explores the rabbit hole in ...

Politics are like sewer canalization – We must stay focused

Politics are like sewer canalization. You can stop following or think about it for a while. But it will always stay the same. The sad reason for bigger and more bureaucratic corrupt governments are the masses of people who ignore their own individual and collective potential. We have enormous potential as individuals and as a collective. But ...

Ex Machina and the threat of artificial intelligence

We've had some films about artificial intelligence and singularity from the past years like Automata, Transcendence, Her and so on - Ex Machina continues along that track.

They Live by John Carpenter & Nada comic by Ray Nelson

The film that time has caught up with. They Live (1988) is a fantastic sci-fi film that in extremely many ways foresaw the future and explains at least the rough concept of what is going on in our world today. Although the quality of the film is sometimes below average and placing itself in the B-film category. ...

Let it abide in you

A subjective feeling yet shared among humans for alla times; that is the feeling of being endless and eternal. The feeling that your consciousness is all there is, an entity that is part of something forever or just a branch of some incomprehensible and universal consciousness (or mind if you prefer calling it so). Our ...

Dalai Lama on reincarnation and artificial intelligence

Here's some interesting viewpoints, coming straight from the highest source in Tibetan Buddhism, regarding artificial intelligence and reincarnation. If it's possible to upload/download the mind we're going to be in for a duplication and expansion of consciousness beyond our imagination. Perhaps all this was already regulated in the biological bodies we already have? That we ...

Philosophy is like a tree

Monday, October 13, 2014 0 Permalink

Philosophy is like a tree. At first you notice its size, its place in the surroundings and through time all the colors of the leaves through the season. Then you find out that there are roots that nourish the tree and a whole eco system below ground. The fascination of this makes you realize that ...
