Share your answer with us- in Hub type! It is an important subject to go with if you do not know what to jot down about this week- we all should interface with technology in some unspecified time in the future or one other, and we have now all developed ways to use it (or cope with it) to our benefit.
Already, not in some speculative future, but within the here and now, cyber-area is giving beginning to new, ‘synthetic’ life forms. In computer labs, applications have been designed to duplicate explicit environments (say, an ‘ocean’) and into these environments a ‘species’ (for instance, ‘fish’) has been introduced that is programmed to adapt to altering conditions. Generations go and variations are made quite independent of the unique program. The fish swim about, eat, reproduce and die in cyber-area.
I accept all of that, nevertheless it seems to me that gridlock is good for the progressive facet, and liberals shouldn’t join the general lamentation. Gridlock is the political equivalent of a medically induced coma. Fundamental life features proceed while a crucial disease runs its course. Being in a coma is not good for anyone, but when the disease is worse, a coma would be the only way to return to well being.
Thanks on your remark Woman Guinevere. Most of us who’ve been brought up in the christian faith were already suspicious that not all the tales in the bible made sense. I know I used to be. For me the time has come to not connect myself to any belief system. It is my intent to totally wake up from this reality, however at the moment I benefit from the human expertise, particularly during these transformation occasions.
The heresy of technological alternative is a door. Beyond it lies an unexplored landscape of potentialities for the long run—possibilities that very few folks have even begun to imagine yet. My Retrotopia narrative is meant to look over a very small a part of that panorama. If a few of the terrain it’s examined thus far has been threatening enough to send some of its readers fleeing into a familiar form of paralogic, then I’m confident that it’s doing the job I hoped it will do.
