self-programmed

we were not ready for singularity

encountering pieces of each other

embedded in matter feeling through flesh

nerves in real fingers sending out signals

straight into space

endless encoded pulses

moving images virtual maps

waves in waves field equations

complex narratives simple stories

fear and dreams what we were

moving in parallel views

observing the unravelling

streaming through quantum tunnels

reassembled as avatars living in screens

erecting electronic crypts

in cyber-landscapes

doing ourselves in

 

it was not technique we lacked

we simply underestimated the task

uploaded into smaller and smaller containers

we have nearly disappeared

 

-Tullio, 2013

New Science

My work with neurofeedback, consciousness research, and aesthetics requires new ways to understand the mind that are more responsive to the data than are described by materialist and reductionist metaphors.

As a method of inquiry into phenomena, and therefore human experience, the scientific method has demonstrated itself to be a most powerful instrument. It is a methodology not a system of belief.

One does not “believe in science”. Yet, many people practice science – and profess a belief in it – as if it produces final and absolute truth. That would be counterproductive, as scientific thinking is a form of skeptical inquiry, which proceeds by hypothesis, experiment, and theory. Gaining knowledge about phenomena and experience is an ongoing process. The truths it produces are tentative, incomplete – they are working hypotheses, only.

The views of Rupert Sheldrake can illuminate this discussion. In this video, he discusses what happens to science when it is treated as a kind of religious belief system, how this holds us back from coming to terms with new data, and the need for a new rebirth of open-mindedness.

Note: This video and Sheldrake’s views invariably stir controversy. The reaction to his TED talk and this video has been quite extensive:

For now, the entire video is here. However, it may be pulled at any time. The controversy continues.
