Transcendental Cybernetics: Imagining the Technological Singularity

“​Evolution is a process of creating patterns of increasing order… I believe that it’s the evolution of patterns that constitutes the ultimate story of our world. Each stage or epoch uses the information-processing methods of the previous epoch to create the next.” -Ray Kurzweil

“To understand is to perceive patterns.” -Isaiah Berlin

  3. Alex: The subject is very relevant, due to the consequences it implies for humanity, and in particular for the Human Individual.
    There are some "evolutionary patterns" that repeat themselves throughout evolution; One of them refers to the role that humans are playing in practice as a consequence of our gregarious affective nature, which is not mentioned in your work, and which, when considered, allows us to observe from a different perspective what awaits us if we do not know how to do in front of what is coming. In summary form: if we do not make an adequate reading of "reality", humans will become, of the Social Entity that is being developed as a result of the fusion "WEB - General Artificial Intelligence", which today is a cell of our body for the individual that we are. That is, we will be expendable and utilitarian instruments of said Social Entity.
    An adequate "reading of reality" requires considering the above, as well as knowing what Reason, Being and Conscious Action are about. At the same time, only by making adequate use of Reason can we have the opportunity to face what is coming.
    Here you can find information that improves the quality of "reading reality".
