The influence of Nietzsche is manifest and inescapably contemporary. Extracting patterns of influence from my own personal reading list puts Nietzsche at the top of my social subconscious. Is yours similar? Self similar or replicating is fractal in nature. My research is ongoing. This question is relevant to society, especially as we discuss intelligence (artificial and evolutionary). The dualities between artificial (A.I.) and evolutionary intelligence (E.I) are imminent and inevitable. Augmented Intelligence (Au.I) is not an Australian version of A.I., it’s a bridge between evolution and the artificial. What makes something “artificial”? From an evolutionary perspective all our activities would be some sort of variation or adaptation. How can it be artificial if it was created in our imagination (biology)? It blows my mind how the scientific community is still contaminated by remnants of a higher being. Our grammars of creative fictions describe the fruits of our labours, or technology, as artificial? Everything created, or artificial, originated in our biological imagination and therefore describing it with “artificial”, sounds to me, ignorant. I usually keep this to myself. It’s kind of a conversation killer. Within a trusted group of thinkers, nonjudgmental and prone to careful reflection and contemplation, this approach has potential. Validating technology as an extension of our biology seams to be where this conversation is headed, that is, once you strip out the fear and think about the possibilities.
