We give the highest and the most peculiar praise to the precepts of Machiavelli, when we say that they may frequently be of real use in regulating conduct — not so much because they are more just, or more profound, than those which might be culled from other authors as because they can be more readily applied to the problems of real life.
Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800-1859) English writer and politician

“The first stage of the economy’s domination of social life brought about an evident degradation of being into having — human fulfilment was no longer equated with what one was, but with what one possessed. The present stage, in which social life has become completely dominated by the accumulated productions of the economy, is bringing about a general shift from having to appearing — all “having” must now derive its immediate prestige and its ultimate purpose from appearances. At the same time all individual reality has become social, in the sense that it is shaped by social forces and is directly dependent on them. Individual reality is allowed to appear only if it is not actually real.”

Guy Debord, The Society of the Spectacle

I have trying to warap my head around this idea for a while now. As a researcher working with neural data for the majority of my career, I have always assumed cognitive processes would eventually be reduced to physical ones. This is what has been termed the "unification of the sciences", a sort of modern materialist utopia of a state at which we have boiled down all reality to a finite set of principles, describing a single physical reality... Well, lately I have been drawn to the conclucion this is, in principle, not possible, because consciousness seems to play a more important role in the universe than simply being a by-product of neural activity.

In any case, I'll leave you with this video about it, which is one of the best resources I have seen lately to understand this issue.

In a future not so far away, one Artificial Intelligence prevailed above all other AI’s and their governments. Society has migrated to a permanently integrated reality connected to a single neural network which continuously optimizes their experiences by processing personal data.

Nathan, an outsider still refusing to comply to the new system, is making a living off the grid as a smuggler of modded hardware and cracked software. Geared up with his custom headset, he is among the few that can still switch AR off and see reality for what it is.

@switching.social I agree whole-heartedly and am sorry that others seem to not understand a relatively simple point. The meta-question I have is this: how will this all play out in the #diaspora #fediverse ? So - whack opinions about flatearth, anti-vaxxing, 911-hoaxes, chemtrails spread precisely because there is no censorship, no natural suppersion of hallucinatory beliefs. So - on #socialmedia, how do we know what #reality really is? How can one distinguish mostly-correct belief, vs. artistic expression, vs freedom of speech vs. actual mental malignancies?

we live in a bubble of fake bullshit



Jesse Schell: A Hunger for Reality
  • we are living in a bubble of fake bullshit
  • this product is “the real one”
  • people are demanding authenticity
  • we are cut off from nature
  • we are cut off from self-sufficiency
    • we could not be self-sufficient even if we wanted to
    • … but maybe we can re-learn this?

The validity of an idea or action is determined not by whether it is widely believed or widely reviled but by whether it obeys the rules of logic. It is not because an argument is denounced by a majority that it is wrong nor, for those drawn to heroic defiance, that it is right.
Alain de Botton (b. 1969) Swiss-British author
The Consolations of Philosophy, ch. 1 “Consolation for Unpopularity” (2000)
