We are in the midst of a 40-year (not 40 day) planet altering, life repurposing, technology infused deluge. A great flood of robotics, artificial intelligences, bio-coding, pharma-induced healing, the digitalization of perception, the collapsing of daily life into screens, unthinkable weaponry, and the connecting of all people to all things is the grandest opportunity ever for unbounded human potential — but a direct confrontation to the fulfillment of our spirit.
I believe: As god-like powers spread to all, God becomes more necessary. My mission is to reveal the truth of these.
Everything we now make is aware, sensing, responsive — alive. How are humans differently alive? We need the answer.
Belief in magic, religion, in spirituality and God will accelerate — and deepen — because of, not despite of the rise of big data, machines, robotics, electronics, computing and artificial intelligences. We become what our machines cannot. We do what can’t be outsourced. Faith is our future. Magic is our delight. Atheists are on the wrong side of history.
Hacking mortality will be the biggest industry of the next 3 generations.
I often write entire posts using only one sentence because that makes it harder for the AI to displace me.
The past is rapidly becoming unknowable. More unknowable even than the future. This will lead to a transformative break in human values.
A new age demands new storytelling. I aim for my works to contain lyrical insights, jagged cuts, a bursty flow of consciousness, hyper-awareness, and crafted so that the reader may enter the story at any point without loss. Yes, really.
As god-like powers spread to all, God becomes more necessary. Watch.
I rely on fiction because it is timeless while facts are increasingly throwaway.
To rage against the machine is our most human.
