An idea worth spreading

"Reality is self-induced hallucination." and "Reality ain't never actuality."
1. Human exodus from earth, just in case of natural or intentional extinction events.
2. Inclusive not exclusive education, economics, culture ....
3. Survival of the few fittest can only be assured by most folks surviving.
4. That which does not kill US, EU, RU ..., dang sure will cripple US, EU, RU ....

I'm passionate about

Good Folks, IOW:Just People

Universities

Talk to me about

The unknown, not mythology, dogma, or other BS.
Regurgitation of a learned known is not creative or innovative.
Unknowns allow nothing to become excessively interesting.

People don't know I'm good at

I am not good at anything. I am marginal at best at many things (well maybe). I am always unsure, but fascinated by any (IMO) interesting question.

Truths and Facts. Does Science prove anything?
Fine Art and Theoretical Science (math and physics) have (creativity) much in common. Both tend to rely completely on imagination, curiosity, and unknowns for creativity. Fine Art must be expressed in a medium of canvas, stone, paper, pixels .... Theoretical Science must be expressed by mathematical proofs and models, which can be expressed with digital Fine Art. Some may say that Fine Art is an expression of theoretical actuality. Hence, “Reality ain’t actuality” always seeks reliable answers. Writings by gods and people are more of an institutional or delusionist applied art for crafting whimsical revisionist-reality (Examples (IMO): governments, religions, WallStreet, Microsoft, Hollywood …). Writers use explicit knowledge blended with some primitive and fanciful curiosity for producing entertainment with defective and definitive implicit purposes. Hence, “Reality is self-induced hallucination” always begs every question. Summary: Imagination should be considered an antonym to faith. Both have value, but are never interchangeable in intelligent or social conversation.

Truths and Facts. Does Science prove anything?
Does Science prove anything? Yes, science proves by rigid methodology and reproducible results that there is not at present a better answer to the posed question. Science is interpretation of events, results, history ..., not a mythological faith-based, eternal, quaint answer from gods.

Is the cultural anthropological impact of technology and information changing?
Readily discoverable and available information at the fingertips on the internet is not possible today. Social media as presently modeled is an everything-bin for whatever. Social media websites of the future will be far more focused communities with common and specific information interest. Technology is a tool. Information is the sustenance for communities, activities, collaboration, synergy ... the brain. IOW: A national science information archive has a paper on warp-bubbles, but can you or most folks interested find the subject paper for reference, discussion, or reading? Answer: No In the near future, about +10 years, the whole (or parts) community with interest in any subject will have immediate availability of associated information for collaboration and resultant derivatives / synergy. In an Information Society Environment (ISE) cultures will change, because information is instantly discoverable and available, not the ubiquitous background technology.

First Thanks, I have been keeping up a little on neuroplastic brain development. Together with the on-coming Information Society Environment (ISE) for didactic learning and global culture change “a fall from hubris” is very likely for the “Powers That Be” today, unless the “Powers That Be” want to move on with the rest of US, EU, RU, CN … folks. With “Powers That Be” attempts at disruption and oppression, it still looks like early next century culture. I will hope for much sooner, I am +60yo/BBG.

Yes, I agree, regulating technology progresses/innovation would sustain the "status quo" of hubris in business-government. So, why prevent the wholesale collapse of a system of trade and social regulation? An Information Society Environment (ISE) is the most culturally disruptive advancement possible, and only dangerous to the present "status quo" of hubris in US, EU, RU, CN ….

If communism was working the way its progenitors wanted it to, would it be better than capitalism?
Any economic model that allows/fosters a cast society, as presently in the USA, will fail because wealth flows in a healthy economy. Economic stagnation is proportional to the stagnation of wealth. Institutional hook-capitalism assures economic failure. Governments that legally mandate consolidation of wealth for the entitled few are feudal economic models, not Capitalist economic models.
