Welcome to “conscious”… how can I help you today?

W

We have a wide range of conscious experiences. Are you interested in a “human interface” today or perhaps you would like to be a “Cat…” “I am not sure, whats the difference?” NJ368B Algorithm replied. “Let me tell you my friend…have you ever wanted to run free, not a care in the world. You will feel your soft fur blowing in the wind. You will have no real responsibility other than to eat, sleep...

Making Money in the Metaverse

M

Somebody or someone has rebranded Virtual Reality as “the Metaverse”. Thankfully it sounds way cooler and has a more mainstream appeal. It is becoming clearer that the way with interact with the internet is expanding. What was once visual and screen bound is also becoming auditory. Moreover, the content of the internet is merging with reality in the form of glasses and a spatial information layer...

I am Meta and I am hungry for a feed…

I

I think therefore I am. I am a biological. My base interface layer has sensors for touching, hearing, seeing and smelling the world in the now. I am naturally augmented. That is two additional personalised filter layers exist below my base interface. The first augmenting filter layer consists of complexes. These containers exert unconscious influence over how I experience and act in the world...

Code View

Despite Michael feeling particularly proud of the website he was developing, it was nearly five and he was ready to go home. His workmates continued to tap away at their keyboards, staring intently at the screens in front of them. It’s likely they were faking at this point or doing it just to annoy him. There would be a mass exodus once the manager leaves. Bingo. He closed the open browser tab...

Misbehaving human instances

Two engineers stood politely dressed in white. They stared awkwardly at their supervisors. Neither realised the full consequence but both pondered the same dilemma. The engineers named Felix and Eloy were responsible for a computational experiment to artificially design a consciousness platform and things had got out of control. They had an long hour ahead, explaining to a oversight panel, what...

Tesla Bot and me

T

It was 4:05pm and the rain pounded the concrete outside. The city will flood again and that wont be an extreme event. Extreme weather events are now normal. I’m not sure what the word “Extreme” means anymore. My Tesla Bot and I are comfortable. Well, not that it cares how comfortable it is but it feels more like a companion if I consider its needs. I win the chess game again, I must remember to...

Unpredictable programs and the purpose of regeneration

U

The system is alive and moving. The programs are active and performing their purpose. The outcome is regenerative. The system is evolving. Have you served your purpose? The system may make it so. And in this moment of judgement expel you beyond the confines of the structure that supports the majority of programs. Perhaps it is disheartening or a consideration of your lack of effectiveness...

The Other Side

T

We are approaching eight billion people being alive at once on this planet. That is eight billion humans of which all have been born and all are on a journey through life together. Each of us experience life through this biological avatar with all of its sensory bias. We might all be experiencing the same universe together or we could all exist in a fabricated reality driven by what psychologists...

Consciousness, being alive, the universe, everything

C

What is going on? I thought it was strange. I have heard about transference in the context of psychology but this was weird. How could two people experience their own subjective reality, hold different perspectives yet have the exact same feelings? We are different people right or is there some sort of glitch in how this whole thing is supposed to work? When I say, “whole thing” I mean...
