To understand is to perceive patterns. Now of course what this means is that true comprehension comes when the dots are revealed and you get Steven Johnson’s long view and you see the big picture. This is the idea about patterns patterns patterns recurring patterns across different scales of reality, y’know, Paul Stamets talks about the mycelial archetype and how the information sharing systems that comprise the internet look exactly like computer models of dark matter in the universe, look exactly like the neurons in your brain they all share the same intertwingled filamental structure, it’s the rise of networkism as big data, advocates talk about how man-made systems are looking exactly like natural systems, the more we can measure the more we can visualise, the more we can visualise the more expands our consciousness by seeing these recurring patterns across scales of reality, it blows my mind, and I think that technology increasingly is becoming an expander of human consciousness, it extends our thought reach and vision in revealing so much more, it’s like whereas once I was blind now I can see; Geoffrey West from the Santa Fe Institute is telling us that cities are really like organisms, y’know, alleys are like capillaries, how is it possible that a manmade artificial  technological system is behaving like a natural system? The more efficient it becomes the more it starts to look like nature, really interesting weird stuff; y’know, but, it makes me optimistic when Steven Johnson says look, if we can understand all this stuff, I mean anything becomes possible right? It’s the adjacent possible standing as a sort of shadow future, a map of all the ways the present can reinvent itself, it’s beautiful stuff. - Noetic |photo by @jamesjeanart |
