On Conspiracy Theory:Anton Wilson, Hakim Bey, Media Mafia

July 5, 2008

The problem with conspiracy theory is to believe that there is one particular group of human beings who are in control of my destiny. That’s a philosophical extreme to which I don’t  wanna go.  On the other side it’s obvious that people do conspire. That there are conspiracies, secret internal linkforces behind outward political shows of power.  It is clear that there is not one single known politician in America who has any internal linkreal power at all. They are simply working for big corporations and economic interests like oil, or the global market itself. The best model is, that there are many, at least several conspiracies and that they interlock, that they compete, that they melt into each other, that they separate from each other. If we wanna know what’s going on, if we wanna understand history as it is happening we should know something about these conspiracies.  Again critical consciousness is a useful tool here. -Hakim Bey

The conspiracy theory that’s my favorite, is the one I invented myself.-Robert Anton Wilson

The problem with conspiracy theories is that, like in Borges’s metafiction, when you invent them they run the the risk of becoming true.  Rupert Marduk “The Quantum Joker” 

You know the CIA slang for somebody they’re using who doesn’t know he’s being used? They call that a “useful idiot”. Those writers who get exclusives from congressmen, and they have no idea the congressman is working for the CIA and the exclusive is a myth they’ve invented that they want to get into print. If the journalist takes it, they’re a useful idiot. So of course I have to ask myself occasionally, have I become a useful idiot yet? (laughs).-Robert Anton Wilson

“Nothing is true; everything is permitted- The Naked Lunch

Fedor Dostoievsky said that ” if god doesn’t exist, then everything is allowed”, which put him in an ethical crisis. But how about if we put it this way “god exists, because everything is allowed” ( or: god is everything is allowed) so everything(god the dog) is possible, and even, “god exists making all possibilities exist”. God is his own favorite conspiracy theory. In a metadata universe all code unfolds itself into real-ness. Everything one dreams, thinks or writes translates into all the languages of existence. Permanent forking paths create gardens of reality. This is the divinity inscription in page source code: our cosmic trigger.

Is this true? maybe. Does maybe (and would have been) exist? maybe  

 

you are dead and alive

you’ve already fucked that girl on tv

you have killed your father

you have been Tiresias

you have been Donkie Kong jr.

you have smoked crack with Alf

you have eaten more, and faster, hot-dogs than Joey Chestnut

you are having dinner with Ruslana Korshunova 

you are happy

Ray Kurzweil: God is a teenage hacker from another universe

May 30, 2008

Futurist edge-cutter Ray Kurweil delivered a teleportec conference at the World Science Fair in New York.  Teleportec is a brand that as the name implies provides a teleconference system that feigns teleportation, like in the hologram dreams, it gives a 3d eye contact display interphase.

“A more sophisticated take,” he said, “is that the laws of physics are a form of intelligent design. Of course, the designer might be an adolescent in some other universe, and our universe is just a science fair.”

Classy gold serpentine beginning for the fair. Kurweil believes that sheer data flow in the near future will give us and unprecedented understanding of biological systems, including the human body, and the ability to hack it in ways that may ultimately defy death.

V.S. Ramachandran, said that

“God is an hacker, not an engineer — and that’s  a problem we’ll have to confront,”. And Kurzweil’s response was simply that it wouldn’t be a problem.

Kurzweil said: “There’s been regular predictions that Moore’s Law will come to an end. The first prediction was 2002. Intel now says 2022… [but] the end of Moore’s Law… won’t be the end of the exponential growth of computing. We’ll then go to the sixth paradigm—which is three-dimensional computing.

“We live in a three-dimensional world, our brains are organised in three dimensions, we might as well compute in three dimensions.”

He added: “In fact BlackBerry and other cell phones are already using multilayered chips—the baby steps into the third dimension.”

Kurzweil’s vision is similar to Terence Mckenna’s and Teilhard de Chardin´s Omega Point, the Violet doorway in Hyperspace, the end of the rain boom bow spectrum. Just a little more grounded on high tech. The singularity, a term borrowed from quantum physics, black hole conundrum, is a point of total technoological acceleartion that vantages us and overtakes us. But in its absortion it endows us with a superintelligence.

Whereas the first human genome cost $1bn to produce, now one million can be produced for the same price. Within 15 years, he said, we’ll be adding more than a year every year to life expectancy, with future developments including drugs that can “switch off” disease-promoting genes, and in-body devices the size of blood cells to help rid us of cancer cells and other problems
