“The mind is to the brain as a computer program is to the hardware of the computer on which it runs.” (Malafouris pg. 26)


“We don’t care about what you did yesterday—we care about what you’re going to do tomorrow.” (Corey Doctorow)

After this weeks observations, I started to really pay witness to how the computer is an extension of our minds and imagination. It got me pondering where our evolution with technology might be leading us to some really connected collective omega point or something of the sort? A point where our technologies become so advanced and capable of processing such overloads of rich info that it causes our own evolution to make a mega change just to keep up with the complexity of our own creations. Also while pondering the dynamic between us I could help but feel that technologies evolution has been and can be such a force behind continuing to create a better globe. For technology is only dangerous in the hands of those who feel like alienated egos in a shell of skin and bones . For as the author/speaker terence mckenna once stated;“It’s clearly a crisis of two things: of consciousness and conditioning. We have the technological power, the engineering skills to save our planet, to cure disease, to feed the hungry, to end war, create paradise; But we lack the intellectual vision, the ability to change our minds. We must decondition ourselves from 10,000 years of bad behavior. And, it’s not easy.”
