These problems are but irruptions of a more fundamental problem: in any human population there are those who are f...

Techno-Utopianism and the Fate of the Earth

Found a link into the 2014 conference held by the International Forum on Globalization on the topic: Techno-Utopianism and the Fate of the Earth. The talk I listened to was Future Shock by Douglas Rushkoff, but I see a lot of interesting stuff here! http://ifg.org/techno-utopia/full-audio-of-teach-i...

Re: Myth as Meth

I feel the emphasis on "overcoming" our humanity is overwhelming in our culture....except this "overcoming" isn't overcoming of vice, or of suffering, but of *being* through transforming our selves lioke a machine.
