Life is a funny thing. From day one, we are taught that life is simply a cruel physical reality that happens to us. What if I told you that everything we have been taught is a lie?
Let's say that, in the future, one is able to upload you brain into some sort of backup similar to the way in which one stores a computer's information on a backup hard drive. The “back-up” copy of your brain should be the same as the intended “original” copy, otherwise, what would be the point of having this “back-up” brain? What if the contents of your brain, stored on this backup hard drive, was downloaded into two bodies simultaneously? More specifically, what if this backup information was downloaded into both a body living in Hawaii and the one intended for hard labor on Mars? The answer to this question is dependent on the nature of the technology used to perform this upload. If the upload is somehow affected by the simultaneity of the upload, there could be damage done to the software as it is uploaded, depending on how the data is transmitted. Imagine two people trying to stream Netflix on their devices using the same WIFI network. There may be moments where the show gets paused on one or both computers because streaming uses so much data and in the case where one is uploading a database contenting someone’s thoughts, it could cause small failures, or perhaps even a completely failed download.
The 20th century caused classical liberal ideals to be seen as, in many ways, the chimera. The structuralist movement of the mid to late 20th century had found itself in quite the quandary. As Foucauldian and Derridean schemas systematically attacked our fundamental tautological assumptions, the question that remained was this: what is, exactly, the locus of power described? In “The History of Sexuality”, Foucault proposed in the late 1976 that we as developed societies are under a “Victorian” regime of truth: a dominant, repressive, and coercively cosignatory process. Today, a similar regime dominates us today, and the ways in which we are dominated by discourse is more apparent now than ever before. The Foucauldian project, regardless of the historicity and the norms propounded within the domain of public discourse, seeks to intellectually liberate in the negative, or categorizing by “absence” rather than the “presence” of distinguishing features. This negative interpretation of power relations is a powerful methodology to systematically analyze institutions, social structures, and even scientific disciplines. In The Order of Things: An Archaeology of the Human Sciences, Foucault proposes a particular idea called the episteme. This concept most specifically is that of how ordering and taxonomy create influential power structures. Foucault writes: “Creating the fundamental codes of a culture— those governing its language, its schemas of perception, its exchanges, its techniques, its values, the hierarchy of practices.” In other words, the structures that organize and classify knowledge are limited by our own conceptual and intellectual purview. How do you think we ensure in the future that our representations of knowledge are as true to reality as possible? How may we best direct our collective energy and labor as a society in order to fundamentally transform society in radical ways? How can we best move scientific progress forward if we do not question our fundamental assumptions?
The human brain is a highly resilient thing on earth. It gets moulded by what we see throughout the day. Our choices are barely our own. Does that sound disturbing? But it is true.
The main elements associated with the concept of Global Village-
A village is usually formed by a certain number of people in an area and their habitat, nature, environment and fauna. As such, the existence of such villages is noticed in every corner of the world. Some villages are cities, some cities are districts or regions, and some districts and regions are considered to be a country with a combined geographical location. Today, with the advent of technology, the world has become smaller. The world as a whole is a village where every country can actually be considered or represented as an individual.
Earth is succumbing to famine due to blight and drought resulting from climate change, the depletion of resources, and overpopulation. A global pandemic is wiping out less-developed nations. In the United States, the vulnerable poor, working poor, and lower middle class, especially the elderly, are dying from a lack of access to affordable, quality healthcare. Amidst all of this, political conservatives, convinced they are living in the end-times, are stunned when members of a cult that worships the late author, Kurt Vonnegut, vanish without a trace.
Honestly, I'm not going to say this theory is completely credible. I was having a long night recently, and suddenly had some wild ideas. This is one of the ones I wrote down. Stepping back, I realize that this theory could not be proven, but by statistics, it works. So before clicking out of this article, hear me out.
Futurologist, social engineer, inventor, industrial designer - Jacques Fresco has left a legacy this is nevertheless resentful and fashionable around the arena. His utopian designs are questionable in many approaches, but in a few locations, they may be greater logical than within the international civil community. What's the cause in the back of such warmed conversations regard simultaneously?
“I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve (or save) the world and a desire to enjoy (or savor) the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”
