Welkom in mijn virtuele realiteit

We leven in een fantastische tijd. Waarin technologie het mogelijk maakt om dieper te gaan, hoger te mikken en verder te reiken dan ooit tevoren. We zijn in staat om synthetisch leven te creëren, onze genetische blauwdruk te veranderen, quantum supercomputers te bouwen, virtuele werelden van galactische proporties te betreden en dit alles te voorzien van kunstmatige intelligentie.

De wereld waarin we leven verandert hierdoor drastisch en onomkeerbaar. Dit nodigt ieder van ons uit onszelf de volgende vragen te stellen: 'wat is deze realiteit waarin ik me bevind, waar is deze uit opgebouwd en hoe navigeer ik hierin?' En meer nog: 'wie ben ik eigenlijk en wat betekent het om werkelijk Mens te zijn in deze toenemende High Tech wereld?'  #knowthyself

'Today, being Human is the biggest act of heroism'

Ga mee op Heldenreis: stap uit je comfort zone, boost je #bewustzijn, (her)activeer je #innertechnology , shift je  #perceptie en  imagineer jouw eigen toekomst_

Philosopher Nick Bostrom's "singleton hypothesis" predicts the future of human societies.

  • Nick Bostrom's "singleton hypothesis" says that intelligent life on Earth will eventually form a "singleton".
  • The "singleton" could be a single government or an artificial intelligence that runs everything.
  • Whether the singleton will be positive or negative depends on numerous factors and is not certain.

Does history have a goal? Is it possible that all the human societies that existed are ultimately a prelude to establishing a system where one entity will govern everything the world over? The Oxford University philosopher Nick Bostrom proposes the "singleton hypothesis," maintaining that intelligent life on Earth will at some point organize itself into a so-called "singleton" – one organization that will take the form of either a world government, a super-intelligent machine (an AI) or, regrettably, a dictatorship that would control all affairs.

In the beginning, technologists created the science fiction. Now the fiction was formless and empty, and darkness lay over the surface of the science, and the spirit of mathematics hovered over their creation. And the technologists said, “Let there be Internet” and there was connection. Technologists called the Internet “community” and the science they called progress. And there was community and there was progress

The first day, from The Neosecularia, 1.1-1.3

Religious ideas and powerful radical theologies pepper our science fiction. From Klingon religions in Star Trek to the Bene Gesserit in the Dune series, Cylon in Battlestar Galactica to the pervasive Cavism in Kurt Vonnegut’s works, our society has little trouble imagining the concept of new religions. We just don’t implement them.

Modern society has been unsuccessful in scaling new religions beyond the cults of personality or the niches of Scientology. But as the digital and virtual worlds evolve, this is set to change. The 21st century is setting the stage for a new type of widespread faith: technology-based religions.
