Esther Dyson: "The first thing I do is go where other people aren’t. I leave Silicon Valley and spend a lot of time not just in New York but in Russia and in other far-off places. Any time you approach something as an outsider, you’re able to see what people who are familiar with it can’t." Tim O’Reilly: "The myth of innovation is that it starts with entrepreneurs, but it really starts with people having fun. The Wright brothers weren’t trying to build an airline, they were saying, "Holy shit, do you think we could fly?" Peter Schwartz: "You look for technologies that are likely to create major inflection points—breaks in a trend, things that are going to accelerate. Those tend to be very powerful. This is especially true with scientific technology and tools. (...) If an area is attracting great talent and money from governments and companies, you can expect to see important change." - Amira from Bookmarklet

Jason Silva on singularity, synthetic biology and a desire to transcend human boundaries
"Human nature, if nothing else, consists of this desire to transcend our boundaries—-the entire history of man from hunter gatherer to technologist to astronaut is this story of expanding and transcending our boundaries using our tools. And so whether the metaphor works for you or not, that’s a wonderful way to live your life, to wake up every day and say, “even if I am going to die I am going to transcend my human limitations.” And then if you make it literal, if you drop this pretense that it’s a metaphor, you notice that we actually have doubled our lifespan, we really have improved the quality of life across the world, we really have created magical devices that allow us to send our thoughts across space at nearly the speed of light. We really are on the cusp of reprogramming our biology like we program computers. (...)" - Amira from Bookmarklet
"[As Freeman Dyson said] “in the future, a new generation of artists will be writing genomes as fluently as Blake and Byron wrote verses.” It’s a really well placed analogy, because the alphabet is a technology; you can use it to engender alphabetic rapture with literature and poetry.

Waking Life ☞ animated film focuses on the nature of dreams, consciousness, and existentialism // Eamonn Healy speaks about telescopic evolution and the future of humanity http://aminotes.tumblr.com/post...
waking_life sketches.jpg
wakinglifelrg.jpg
"The film focuses on the nature of dreams, consciousness, and existentialism. The title is a reference to philosopher George Santayana’s maxim: “Sanity is a madness put to good uses; waking life is a dream controlled.” Waking Life is about an unnamed young man in a persistent dream-like state that eventually progresses to lucidity. He initially observes and later participates in philosophical discussions of issues such as reality, free will, the relationship of the subject with others, and the meaning of life. Along the way the film touches on other topics including existentialism, situationist politics, posthumanity, the film theory of André Bazin, and lucid dreaming itself. By the end, the protagonist feels trapped by his perpetual dream, broken up only by unending false awakenings. His final conversation with a dream character reveals that reality may be only a single instant which the individual consciousness interprets falsely as time (and, thus, life) until a level of understanding is achieved that may allow the individual to break free from the illusion." - Amira
"The new evolution stems from information, and it stems from two types of information: digital and analog. The digital is artificial intelligence. The analog results from molecular biology, the cloning of the organism. And you knit the two together with neurobiology. Before on the old evolutionary paradigm, one would die and the other would grow and dominate. But under the new paradigm,... more... - Amira
“We won’t experience 100 years of progress in the 21st century—it will be more like 20,000 years of progress (at today’s rate).

23 incredible new technologies you’ll see by 2021 | Matador Network
"When looking at the present as an indication of where we’ll stand a year from now–much less a decade–feeling optimistic may not come easy. We look out to the universe and see an infinite, lifeless abyss enfolding upon our own small pocket of civilization, while the people we look to for guidance and information seem to be little more than straight-faced bearers of bad news. Yet while we can’t predict what the future holds for our unending political discourses, we can look at how far we’ve come with technology in merely the last decade and realize the present we know now will, very soon, find itself memorialized in nostalgia. Here’s some technology emerging down the road that’s poised to change your life on a much greater scale than any outcome of a political debate." - Amira from Bookmarklet

“Maybe we should be open-minded about the obverse possibility – that we hit the buffers because our brains don’t have enough conceptual grasp, (…) Einstein averred that “The most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible. He was right to be astonished. Our minds, evolved to cope with the life of our remote ancestors on the African savannah. It’s amazing these minds can comprehend so much of the counterintuitive microworld of atoms, and phenomena billions of lightyears away. (…) To survive this century, we’ll need the idealistic and effective efforts of natural scientists, environmentalists, social scientists and humanists. They must be guided by the best evidence, but inspired by values from beyond the limits of science.” - Amira from Bookmarklet

Kevin Kelly on the Satisfaction Paradox. What if you lived in a world where everything around you was just what you wanted? - http://aminotes.tumblr.com/post...
"The paradox is that not-choosing may not be satisfying! We may need to make choices in order to be satisfied, even if those choices lead to less than satisfying experiences. (...) The paradox of satisfaction suggests that the tools we employ to increase our satisfaction of choices — filters and recommendations — may be unsatisfying if they diminish the power of our choices. (...) Instead you will pay Amazon, or Netflix, or Spotify, or Google for their suggestions of what you should pay attention to next. Amazon won’t be selling books (which are marginally free); they will be selling their recommendations of what to read. You’ll pay the subscription fee in order to get access to their recommendations to the “free” works, which are also available elsewhere. Their recommendations (assuming continual improvements by more collaboration and sharing of highlights, etc.) will be worth more than the individual books. You won’t buy movies; you’ll buy cheap access and pay for personalized recommendations. The new scarcity is not creative products but satisfaction." - Amira from Bookmarklet

"Consciousness is like the "software" that is running on the "hardware" of your brain. Your brain's hardware is a physical system that is built on the rules of physics and chemistry and molecular biology. Biologists and neurobiologists publish thousands of papers in academic journals each year where they tease apart additional pieces of the puzzle. So far, they find everything in there follows physical laws. So far, they don't have to resort to explanations of quantum effects or spooky non-physical behaviors to draw conclusions of how things work. Its just physics and chemistry and molecular biology." -- Stephen Larson (...) 'Though it's true that, at present, knowledge of the specifics of consciousness--i.e., exactly how does the phenomenon of consciousness arise from neural activity in the brain--is lacking, it's inevitable that someday (probably a lot sooner than most would think) our knowledge of how the brain works will be thorough enough to allow engineering of a device that... more... - Amira from Bookmarklet

"By the middle of the 21st century it will be possible to download your brain to a supercomputer, according to a leading thinker on the future. Ian Pearson, head of British Telecom's futurology unit, told the UK's Observer newspaper that the rapid advances in computing power would make cyber-immortality a reality within 50 years. (...) Pearson also predicted that it would be possible to build a fully conscious computer with superhuman levels of intelligence as early as 2020. IBM's BlueGene computer can already perform 70.72 trillion calculations a second and Pearson said the next computing goal was to replicate consciousness. (...) By 2020 Pearson also predicted the creation of a "virtual world" of immersive computer-generated environments in which we will spend increasing amounts of time, socializing and doing business. He said: "When technology gives you a life-size 3D image and the links to your nervous system allow you to shake hands, it's like being in the other person's office. It's impossible to believe that won't be the normal way of communicating." " - Amira from Bookmarklet

An Interview with Douglas R. Hofstadter, following ”I am a Strange Loop” - http://amira.amplify.com/2010...
“(…) eaching the goal of AI in just a few decades would have made me dramatically lose respect for humanity, and I certainly don’t want (and never wanted) that to happen. (...) I think Kurzweil sees technology as progressing so deterministically fast (Moore’s Law, etc.) that inevitably, within a few decades, hardware will be so fast and nanotechnology so advanced that things unbelievable to us now will be easily doable. A key element in this whole vision is that no one will need to understand the mind or brain in order to copy a particular human’s mind with perfect accuracy, because trillions of tiny “nanobots” will swarm through the bloodstream in the human brain and will report back all the “wiring details” of that particular brain, which at that point constitute a very complex table of data that can be fed into a universal computer program that executes neuron-firings, and presto — that individual’s mind has been reinstantiated in an electronic medium. (...) Rather ironically, this... more... - Amira from Bookmarklet
"Well, the problem is that a soul by itself would go crazy; it has to live in a vastly complex world, and it has to cohabit that world with many other souls, commingling with them just as we do here on earth.

"Whuffie Meter: Curious about the future of social networking? Whuffie is a conceptual social Metric based on what others think of you. In the future this Metric might actually be usable as real money. Why not? Celebrities are used to getting things for free based on their popularity. This is the same idea taken to its democratic extreme. Socializing will take on completely new dimensions when we can see everything public about a person right as we are talking with them. Think dating is difficult today? Imagine the hoops we’ll have to jump through when everyone in the bar can see your complete dating history the minute you walk into the room. The term “whuffie,” by the way, is a word coined by author Cory Doctorow in his book Down And Out In the Magic Kingdom. It refers to the measurement of respect or karma a person gains or looses in their lives. In Doctorow’s future, humans have implants in their brains that visually project their whuffie, which has replaced money as currency." - Amira from Bookmarklet
