Statement Update. 2009-02-25.
Attendance: Jeff, Dan.
evolution increases information compression.
sharing information is free. this enables acceleration.
everything is evolution. evolution requires mutation.
next level of consciousness is universal awareness of the process of evolution in all things.
awareness creates feedback.
highly levels of feedback lead to ever accelerating
informational big crunch
does consciousness = memory = perception of time = feedback?
plebeian design: physical evolution overtaken by cultural evolution overtaken by ?
a full consciousness of evolution leads to enlightenment?
::how do we transfer/convert/etc:
information->big bang ->earth ->life ->consciousness->anxiety->intellect->?
information->big bang->earth ->life ->consciousness->anxiety->knowledge->learning->?
math ->physics ->chemistry ->biology ->psychology->religion->atheism->enlightenment
information theory(levels of consciousness)
big bang ->chemistry ->bio/life -> consciousness(cultural life/memes) -> digital consciousness -> energy
another storyline, art/aesthestics?
process over product
broad rather than tall structure
appreciation of mutations
unfiltered data feeds
conservative market economics
anxiety (personal and society)
religion -> atheism -> ?
desire to be in control
spike reward systems
