Subject:Temes ... and the Singularity gets scary
Time:08:23 pm
Current Mood:nervousnervous
I just watched Susan Balckmore's lecture on Memes and Temes.
Behold a completely new take on the rapidly approaching Singularity! I see human beings as emergent on the interface between natural and memetic selection. Now a new kind of replicator, temes, threatens to make all of us wetware beings obsolete. The possibility of friendly mind children has become anachronistic, simplistic, laughable.

It's as if we've already  passed some threshold of information speed and/or volume, so that another dimension emerged. It's as if we've passed a tipping point, silently, on the way toward a Simgularity of the Terminator/Eyeborg takeover variety.

Reality couldn't have more drama than this. Why aren't the rest of you excited/scared?
