General Apex – Shattered System

Filed under: Original Writing — Tyler @ 1:25 am

The room is dim, unclean, and musty.

Two monitors on standby rest upon a tattered wooden desk.

The light in the room comes from a red bulb next to the only door.

The door opens and the red bulb turns off.

A set of four surveillance cameras situated in each corner of the square room switch from standby to active tracking.

Each camera has three lenses, one for movement detection, one for light-oscillation analysis, and one for color sampling and focus.

The northwest and northeast cameras track a man as he enters the room. He is of small build and is wearing a large overcoat.

He removes his coat and puts it over a chair opposite to the monitors. Before sitting down, he opens a large footlocker-style refrigerator and removes a two canned drinks and a tightly wrapped sandwich.

He puts the sandwich and one of the drinks down by the monitors. The remaining drink is immediately opened. Before taking a sip, he raises the beverage with a smile toward the cameras.

The Word the Song the Mitochondria

Filed under: Society Today — Tyler @ 12:16 am
Mitochondria

Mitochondria

We are the song, the oral tradition. These themes reverberate throughout human recorded history.

In the game, “The Talos Principle” whenever a player walks too far past the boundaries of a stage one hears, “…The Words are everything.
Where the Words end the world ends. You cannot go forward in an absence of space. Repeat.”

Words of course are crucial to data. Songs are simply data, encrypted differently using specific types of hardware. Language, computer programming, maybe we are getting closer to the Theory of Everything than we imagined. Perhaps we are coming to near-perfect understandings of our reality prematurely. And our world is prepared for that understanding, but our society is based on very real systems. It’s difficult to change large systems.

Something demands it.

Our mitochondria looks like a song wave. A sound wave bunched so tight, than the only way to continue the song, is to deepen the encryption layers of the song. It is similar to a musical composer that knows that too much raw volume of sound will overwhelm the listener and will eventually become nothing but noise. The composer knows this and has a few choices. Either have less instruments and focus on bold sounds, have lots of instruments but layer them and control amplitude in order to make them blend as one, or have a variable amount of instruments that take turns. I think mitochondrial DNA wants to have the deepest level of data encryption that it is capable of containing. But why?

I argue that we are talking about something extremely important. It is on the same level of importance as someone’s most precious belongings. What do most people say they would take from their home if there was a fire? Would they take their Xbox? Maybe their kitchen cutlery equipment? Most people I talk to would take their photo albums, perhaps their passports vital identification or maybe precious journals or family ancestry documents. Our identities, memories, and families are what we secure. Everything else can either be replaces, or replicated through the economy. Lose one’s identity, and lose one’s self. Forget one’s past and family, forget the reality.

But what is so important? This must be pretty big if we are going to this level of protection, promulgation, procurement and permutation…and I don’t think we exist as part of some kind of circular argument. We’re not here just to continue existence. And even though I think the film, “Equilibrium” is awesome, I don’t agree that simply, “Feeling” or “to feel” is the primary driving force for existence either. If that were true, then human beings wouldn’t experience the “Jar Phenomenon” when in captivity and also having access to a wide range of emotional input. There are only so many traffic jams that one person can endure before he or she begins to look inward for purpose as opposed to traveling outward. There are only so many times that we can be stopped by invisible barriers before an overwhelming desire to “complete” the system of existence becomes the driving force. What’s more interesting is that we are taught that “death” is related to completion and that we should fear that state. This theme is reiterated in cinema as well, whomever produced and directed the film with Anthony Hopkins called, “Picasso” made a really big deal about the scene where Picasso reprimands one of his art critic friends for saying a piece of his work looked unfinished. Picasso replies by talking about if he finishes the art then “I AM finished” that sort of thing. I get it. But I’m not satisfied.

I’ve been to Europe, I’ve seen amazing art and architecture. It’s beautiful. But really why stop there?

Why stop anywhere?

I think that’s what mitochondria are really after actually. They aren’t in it for the perks ladies and gentlemen. They are in it for the layers, the deep truth that can only be found by pushing the dimensional boundaries of encryption. One of the dances often performed at family events or weddings is the one where everyone lines up and they gently touch hands. Then a person or two has to walk through that barrier, almost creating a human zipper. The last people at the line then move to the front and become those that break the barrier. The line continues this fashion until a different dance is initiated. This reminds me of the process of DNA lining up and getting ready for a life-process of replication. But what it really reminds me of…is something that hasn’t happened yet.

The Hunter Seeker Algorithm.

This Algorithm was a concept discussed in Sid Meyer’s Alpha Centauri. It was a secret project. It was absolutely my most favorite secret project in the game. If your faction controls the Hunter Seeker Algorithm, then your faction is 100% immune to probe teams.

Yo.

I love that.

It basically makes it so you can continue with your faction unimpeded by random attacks or events. The Hunter Seeker Algorithm in conjunction with a solid Satellite Defense Network as well as Pressure Domes just in case the sea-levels rise…puts a faction in absolute solid footing for a transcendent victory.

What would a victory look like in our world?

For example, social networking is helping to sort everything from popular memes to taboo discourse. Search engines sort subject matter by relevance. Censorship hides information by priority. Yet regardless of how hard any certain single group tries to influence anything, the Law of Negative Space dictates that any system that has a form, has a counter-form. To remove one system from another, will always leave at least temporarily a similarly shaped or structured hole…which is in of itself identifiable.

The less we look at the future the more we see it.

Cymatics, 3D Printing, Nanotechnology, computer programming language simplification and deprecation, social network spawning and decay…these all are not “new” inventions, they are manifestations of mitochondrial microcosm conundrums…being worked upon by their counterparts in the macro world.

Lost Testimony

Filed under: Ecosystem Today — Tyler @ 1:34 am

testimony

Here’s the hard part about the environment. First of all, there’s no “fixing” of the environment.

There’s either allowing the environment to function in a way that allows it to proceed with its processes.

You can reverse damage done to the environment by cleaning things up.

There’s assisting in nature’s self-regenerative abilities by creating spaces for environmental repair.

And finally there’s coming up with systems and innovations that decrease the level of eco-damage that occurs as a result of modern human activity.

As for the whole, Global Warming dispute and that issue:

It doesn’t matter whether or not there is global warming. We know that there is a lot of waste and trash generated by affluent societies. That alone should want to spark innovation. Now if global warming is being used as a foothold for lots of new taxes etc. Then that should be discussed. But even if there wasn’t global warming going on as a result of human activity and consumption, we already know there are issues such as trash, deforestation, pollution of the ocean and other problems that can be linked human activity.

As for the whole Extra Terrestrial or alien issue:

It doesn’t matter if aliens are real or not. The truth is human beings experience their world through the lens of their own personal and collective societal maturity. This maturity is usually indicated by the collective understanding and acceptance of technology as well as social knowledge. Until we truly master both sides of the brain and finish what’s already on our plates, disclosure will never happen on a scale to please anybody who wants it. Things move from the fringe of society into the forefront based on several factors. One of those factors is of course boredom. When people get bored they are open to new stimulus, new ideas. There is a yearning for something that puts either a different spin on the known, or else access to the unknown.

Why would anyone want to deep dive into UFOs and aliens while there are so many problems that we face right now? That’s the real question in my opinion.

And also, that’s where the tough mirror comes into play. The people that probably have already been in contact with aliens are those who are somehow either related to advanced technology, or else they have access to mathematics or engineering skill. Perhaps they have some kind of other interesting aspect that extra terrestrials might be interested in such as art etc. I don’t know or care. But since time is limitless, and if people tend to share their knowledge, then the best strategy towards disclosure isn’t petitioning the government for info. That’s an absolute waste of time. That’s like panhandling at a bank. They will not give you a cent. You might get a loan, but not a free handout. It just isn’t going to happen.

The best strategy for disclosure is for as many people to learn mathematics, engineering, art, technology, botany, music, and all the subjects and knowledge in between as possible. This will in turn create a larger quantum processing field for our society. Think of it like a computer. A computer has RAM, a CPU and a hard drive and a case, fans the whole deal.

The reason why the computer exists is to do something. The case itself is just a doorstop without the processing power and problem solving locked within.

The computer case is like our planet. Without the people, the trees, the water and all the fun stuff that a living planet has, it would be pretty inert like Mars. Mars is like a computer that won’t turn on. It’s cool to explore, but that’s about it.

Since we have so many people on our planet, we have an opportunity to solve problems and then set those solutions in stone. That’s why we are seeing such reforms of culture happening so quickly. Our civilization can produce enough finished products to satisfy needs across the board, we just haven’t perfected how to balance this with our environment. Also there’s always the question of who flips the burgers and who eats them. Do we create robots to flip the burgers? Would someone want that job? Who gets to say what jobs are necessary are meaningful and which aren’t? At some point the mind keeps going in circles of though experiment until eventually the mind rests upon some kind of taboo. What makes a person a person? Is there life after death? What’s more relevant to an actual person, the body or the soul of that person? My thoughts on this is simple: Stop caring about the taboos because they will always be there and their solutions will become more easily visible if we increase our maturity level as a whole.

By this I mean, let’s focus on some simpler issues and then codify those solutions as quickly as possible. Some ways this is happening is of course the open source movement. People I think are getting as bored as I am lately and they’re just answering questions and solving computer programming problems on a massive collaborative scale. We really need to see this happen in areas outside of computer programming such as physics, botany, optics, and other more mechanical and natural sciences. The problem of why we don’t see more collaboration on these issues even though the open source movement has been extremely successful is because things in the real world are expensive. 3D printers, expensive tools, drills, all these things cost money, time, a safe space. And there are also lucrative benefits to keeping certain technologies secret during their development. This is completely natural and I understand this. I personally would love to strike it rich from developing some technological doo-dad and then patenting it etc. But I think sometimes it is easy to self-defeat one’s creativity by worrying too much about monetization of a project instead of the process for completion of the project.
