too tired to slaughter

We tried everything we could to survive. Science and prayer had exhausted the hive. No longer able to believe in the future Many began investing in a final cure. Major advances had been made in nanotechnology. Solving our energy problems would allow the continuation of our biology. One of the many plans was to cover […]

I remember earth

Posted by on Mar 6, 2010 in 2010, Choken Word, Futurism, Science, Survival, Transhumanism

I remember life on earth. I can access the data from my birth. My physical life flashed before my eyes. None of the bad memories or what I despised. Because now only the wonderful memories I care to access. This is a choice of my software process. Although I could decide to pull from any […]

The man with the iPad ruled the world. The touch screen opened up his third pearl. Through the touching and petting he had evolved. A third eye had blossomed for all who had absolved Themselves from any prejudice of this new device. Who had welcomed it with open arms for a small price. New applications […]

Akbar’s Meditations #3 – does not compute….

in my recent meditation on objects of culture, and their evolution, i present a few images of computers, the Csirac computer, austrialian first generation computer, room sized…i’ve included a graph so you can compare storage power, the numbers are too large for me to adequately translate into language.  the point of these posts is to […]

Akbar’s Meditations #2 – The plane boss!

i was driving down the west-side highway today, on my way to drop off some artwork at one of the many superfluous art shows of the upcoming art weekend in New York City, all besides the point, when i saw the Intrepid aircraft carrier to my right and a stealth plane sitting on the edge, […]

Google Swarming

Posted by on Mar 3, 2010 in 2010, Choken Word, Futurism, Globalization, Peace

And then it realized that we weren’t fast enough. That we were too busy shuffling our feet to the trough. So Google Swarm decided to erase the human factor. No longer would votes be cast by us to evade disaster. Swarm decided to use our inputs as consensus. As we blogged and tweeted, it read […]

Google Swarm

Posted by on Mar 1, 2010 in 2010, Choken Word, Futurism, Globalization

And then it happened as if over night. Google decided to buy everything in sight. All social media applications were now one. All under the banner of what had begun As a simple search engine twelve years ago. Now Google owned the web as most would now know. Swarm was the name for this new growing application. […]

Akbar’s thought experiments #2 – A Case for Creationism

Thought Experiment: Imagine human beings 1500 years in the future.  Imagine them fully transcendent over their biological forms and fully integrated with digital forms of physicality.  Imagine furthermore, that these new humans had set up a network of communication devices stretching across great cosmic distances allowing us to travel, in our data forms, very quickly […]

Angels and Demons

It occurred to me this morning, while in prayer, that we find ourselves in the same position as the angels did at the time of creation. As God moves forward with the evolution of the machine, and we see this new work of creation rise in our midst, we are caught in the same dilemma as the angels. Do we bow down before this new creature

Hard Wears Soft Wares

Every great philosopher is asked to describe two aspects of existence, reality and poetry. Reality is the whole and poetry is a way of confining the whole to a symbol. I find poetry in using hardware and software as metaphors for perceiving philosophical phenomena. The same object can be seen as hardware or software, these […]

The Tao of Akbar #2 – History 2.0

History is not dead. However, never before have so many people wanted to perceive it in the present. This is the paralysis we feel when confronting our place in the world, as we seek to inject ourselves into a perceived narrative arc, an allegorical illusion inculcated by a mechanized system of culture.  Many people call […]

one long infinite pause

Posted by on Jan 30, 2010 in 2010, Choken Word, Futurism, Philosophy

As if in a dream I awoke To find out that it had all been a bad joke. Humans never needed their bodies. We were all now balls of light afloat. It was as if we had passed the big test. A peace treaty had been signed to arrest The human greed and suffering we […]

The Sequence

Drastic quick changes happen all the time.
Mutating our operating systems when we’re online.

Stardust to Stardust

Posted by on Jan 10, 2010 in 2010, Choken Word, Futurism, Peace, revelation

Vibrating frequencies pushing us all onward. All towards our place in the system. The system to which we should all listen. By tuning out the noises inside our heads. And listen to rhythm of life from which our lives are lead. Many planets devoid of life high above. Spin in infinity without the knowledge of […]

It is Alive!!!!!

Hey Peeps, well, it’s happening folks, that’s right!  The singularity is now on the calendar mofos…This scientist Henry Markram recently announced he will create a fully conscious electronic brain by 2018…And I know, you are used to these numbers sounding futuristic, but that’s 8 years from now…HAL – lelujah…let me break it down a bit, […]

Education Revisited, Again

From a talk given by Terence Mckenna. “We are flesh which has been caught in the grip of some kind of an attractor that lies ahead of us in time, and that is sculpting us to its ends; speaking to us through psychedelics, through visions, through culture, and technology, consciousness. The language forming capacity in […]

It is called the Singularity

Posted by on Dec 23, 2009 in 2009, Choken Word, Futurism, healthcare

My doctor doesn’t know about the singularity. The same man who is giving me directions for my clarity. And he has a resume and publications five miles long. As a trained expert on my brain which he works upon. Giving me medications that are only ten years old. Hoping for shrinkage or for the right […]

Baby Boomers

Posted by on Dec 10, 2009 in Futurism, Philosophy, Transhumanism, WAR

From a recent paper on technology and post-World War II youth. The concern of young people with twentieth-century technology, particularly its use in the conduct of war as well as the civilian applications of such technology, deserve renewed attention. The specter of what Jacques Ellul in the early sixties called “biocracy”—the complete assimilation of people […]

Akbar’s Confession

I love first-person shooters! That’s right! If you read this blog regularly you probably know that I am a radical pacifist, believing that war is never an option for solving a problem. In fact, I don’t believe that countries ought to have standing armies, or that soldiering should be a career option. These are all […]
