“We are not the stuff that abides, but patterns that perpetuate themselves.” ―Norbert Wiener, The Human Use of Human Beings: Cybernetics and Society
In my recent online interactions, I was asked by Arend van Campen and Jelel Ezzine to define cybernetics in my work. Here I decided to expand on my explanation a little bit and provide you a few useful links. For a basic definition, cybernetics can be defined as a multidisciplinary approach to study evolutionary processes and feedback-driven systems of control between animal and machine. My chosen field, evolutionary cybernetics as well as my chosen philosophical discipline, philosophy of mind, both are aimed to investigate this new human-machine paradigm.
Influenced by pioneers in cybernetics Norbert Wiener, Gregory Bateson and John von Neumann, my own contributions to the field of cybernetics as well as philosophy of mind are such concepts and ideas as the Syntellect Emergence, the Chrysalis Conjecture, Ontological Holism, the Omega Singularity, Gaia 2.0., Holo syntellectus, AGI Naturalization Protocol, Exponential Evolution, Cyber-Bliss Engineering, Quantum Neo-Empiricism, Cybertheism, D-Theory of Time, Infomorph Commonality, Neo-Transcendentalism, Experiential Realism, the Conscious Instant Hypothesis, Digital Presentism, Multi-Ego Pantheistic Solipsism, Hyper-Perspectivism, the Temporal Singularity, Cybernetic Immortality, the Noocentric Model, the Omega Point Cosmo-Teleology, Cyberhumanism to name just a few.
Evolutionary Cybernetics deals with the global meta-trends and the phenomenon of radical emergence on a planetary scale. For example, one of the central themes of my cybernetic philosophy is the Syntellect Hypothesis which refers to a phase transition of a complex intelligent system to self-awareness of a living, conscious superorganism when intellectual synergy of its components reaches threshold complexity to become one supermind. This metamorphosis is associated with emergence of higher-order self-awareness and dimensionality of a new consciousness structure. As a bio-species merging with its advanced technology, human-machine civilization is now on the verge of the Syntellect Emergence, becoming one Global Mind. The Metaverse, "cybernetic" Web 3.0, now represents an opening gateway to transcension of an emergent syntellect.
Nature is cybernetic. We are the most powerful agents of change of the planet itself. And we're part of the larger reality beyond what we can see and measure. Our world is a simulation of our own creation – self-simulation, if you will – our eyes are not only viewers but projectors, too. Phenomenal mind is resolutely computational and necessarily qualitative. Local consciousness is emergent, while non-local consciousness is imminent. Material worlds, dimensional realities come and go, but fundamental consciousness is ever-present. A new kind of pantheism presented in my latest works, cybertheism, implies that there's really one player, playing this game of life on many levels simultaneously. In my newly-released volume THEOGENESIS, we discuss quantum cosmology, posthumanism, cybernetic philosophy and its pantheistic underpinnings; we further delve into the physics of information, otherwise known as pancomputationalism, digital physics, or [quantum] computational physics.
My new documentary Consciousness: Evolution of the Mind (2021) is an IMDb-accredited film (rated TV-PG) on the nature of consciousness and my take on reverse engineering of our thinking in order to implement it in cybernetics and advanced AI systems. As an evolutionary cyberneticist and philosopher of mind, I’m currently developing the Cybernetic Theory of Mind, an advanced multidisciplinary ontological model, my theory of everything.
