We are open sourcing our process. More specifically, we are trying to put all our unfinished pieces and ideas online. We hope to encourage collaboration and strengthen our thinking process. We don’t claim ownership, we are just hoping to be a part of the greater dialog.

Is information free?

2008.12.10: Plebian Design in 10-250

2008.12.10: Plebian Design in 10-250, MIT

Statement Update. 2009-02-25.
Attendance: Jeff, Dan.

::shortest story:
evolution

::short stories:
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:
knowing->learning
product->process
randomness->opportunity

::short storylines:
ev theory
information->big bang ->earth ->life ->consciousness->anxiety->intellect->?
information->big bang->earth ->life ->consciousness->anxiety->knowledge->learning->?
science
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?

::medium story:
evolution
open source
process over product
broad rather than tall structure
appreciation of mutations
feedback loops
process documentation
unfiltered data feeds
conservative market economics
neurobiology
enlightenment
personal consciousness
societal consciousness
anxiety (personal and society)
religion -> atheism -> ?
time perception
randomness
desire to be in control
spike reward systems
