Post human blues

Moore's law has been in my mind as of late. It states that the rate of growth of transistors and processing power doubles itself exponentially.

I came across a great set of podcasts about artificial intelligence and the development of a hardware/organic entity and it's implications in our immediate future. Take a good look at our progress in history and our progress in the last 200 hundred years. We're on a mad race of novelty which will lead us to a technological singularity. McKenna, the Mayans, the Olympics geez, things are coming ahead within the next 6 years. Then again, when aren't they coming you could say.
But you cannot deny that things are speeding up, new technology is coming out every week and the world is like a stretched out rubber band. Back in the middle ages life as almost static, things people only knew one set of things and kept going. Now I find myself resetting my belief structure every other day.

Well lets make this post a posiblility window into our future.

"...our purpose is to build something beyond us, to be more."

Happy birthday Jenny!

I hope that the future keeps you cuddled in strangeness.

This past weekend I got a hold of the works of 3 very talented directors, Chris Cunningham
Michel Gondry and Spike Jonze ( couldn't find a link to a video but check the site below and you'll find most of his work there.)

I picked these up casue I wanted a source of inspiration for future video adventures, turns out that they have directed every music video I have liked for the past 15 years or so. Very rewarding

Here's one of my favourites.

also here's a great site for music videos

more updates this week.

Why we fight, documentary.

I have recently sent out a link to a hosted file to many people. The file in question is Why we fight.

It is a documentary about the deeply rooted military complex in the western world and it's global implications since the end of wwII.

I watched this and it made me feel angry, it made me ashamed of our history and it gives me hope that someday we can change this. Why are we victims? We have the glory within us to change, to be more than our selfish genes ask us to be.

Excuse me while I get political but I think that this is something that should be watched by all people in these turbulent times.

The link will be here for a week.

Monday, into the cold sun of January.

Hello Doctor

"The observer effect means that unless and until the moment of observation the universe exists only as a possibility. Until you observe it, in other words without a conscious sentient being, the universe doesn’t exist."

Very interesting article, the mind as the eye and the soul as the understanding.
I went for a walk with my friend Patricia to the lakeshore of the city, it was so calm and the water appeared to move in two directions at the same time.
It's beginning to get cold again, we had such a nice warm couple of days earlier and now back to January, cold and clear. I can see the people walking by from where I'm sitting, now that I have windows behind me in this new location at spin. 2 of our guys left for better companies and we got to scavenge their former areas. I ended up securing myself a new desk in a corner with a nice view.
Today has been slow, so I'm gonna work on my art.
As you can see I drew a picture, I intend to keep them coming.

That's it for now.

Swing alley

Last night was a full moon, so after work I ventured out to the dark alleys of the city searching for this, the swing in the alley. If you follow this alleyway in between Queen and Richmond heading east you'll come across a small alleyway , blocked by a broken fence, littered with rocks and bottles and who knows what else. You can see in the picture how the walls converge at the end, creating a macabre faux depth in an area filled with scribbles and random self modifying street art. Perhaps the shuffling in there caused the dust to rise, thus I got these ORBS floating in there, thought there was no rain nor visible light reflecting objects... just brick and darkness.

Here is a rough map that I made of the location in question, if you found it you should see the bats stuck to the walls nearby. When you see them you'll know what I mean.

The night continued with further venturing with my friend Adam
whom met me nearby and accompanied me back to the place in question, to get more pictures, I managed to get a couple more before the batteries died on me.

Adam and I went back to his place and watched the new Dawn of the Dead with his girlfriend Stanzie. It was a fun gory movie, though not as strange as the original. I will always love the bumbling zombies more than the running ones.
After a walk under the moon I made it home and practiced some tai chi in the backyard (less yard, more cement plates) and thanked the everything for a good day and a good life. I got lots of mail, mostly being bills. Thought I did receive 2 comics made by a friend from London On called Geography of Nowhere. I read them and then my girlfriend did too so that she could see that it wasn't a love letter from a secret lover. I liked the comics, they were heartfelt, melancholic and true. The author of the comics is Teresa Danielle , feel free to email her and ask her for a copy at
greenappleseeds@hotmail.com she'll more than happy to send you a pair of comics. Yeah grassroots publishers!!

Right now I'm at work and my girlfriend is playing the guitar and singing to me over the phone, I love it. She sounds great!

That's it for now.

Sweet Wednsday

Thanks goons.

Got that Kal el from the something awful forums, good content there. Turns out that most of the funny things that circle around the net come from there or end up there.

I went to see Munich with Ben and Brett last night, great movie about violent dialogues and the need for a home. I recomend it, also I think Eric Bana would make a really good Snake from Metal Gear.

Onto more significant topics...

Everyday this week I've been waking up and giving myself a second to plan out the aim of my day. A little mental excercice to affect the quantum field around me with my will, my themes vary from happiness, challenge to change.

here's a sample from something I read today:

...Now if I were able to look inside your brain, there would be no candle there - just a binary code of photons flickering on and off. The question is, where was that image before I asked you to think of it? The point I am trying to make is that when I ask you to envisage a sunset or a candle flame, before you remember it that information is not in your brain. The information shows up in your brain as soon as you have the intention to remember. So where was it before that? It existed as potential in consciousness but it wasn’t in your brain.

Flickering potential, manifested....
Have a nice day!

Future shower plus hat tip

View from the city of gods

I'm going to work soon, so I'll make this short. I was thinking while in the shower, about things to come up in the future. I was thinking about books in pill form, dream themeparks, retina tracking cgi generating theatres, nano advertising clouds...
there's talk of having a hyperspace drive working in 5 years.

All these ideas are already there in the meme pool of the universe, we're just fishing them out.

Everybody's wishes are coming true, am I asking for the right things? I would like some time to look at the sky, to chill out and to see if I can listen to my own heart beat, before I buy a nano vascular MP3 player with a playstation 5 built in it.

The silicon dream...
The new stone age.

Speaking of, now that I am at work I've textured up something I've built.
Here it is.

My first very own blog

This time, in 2010 there will be over 1 billion blogs. This is one of them, maybe it will be abandoned half way through to rot in the digital mind of growing overnet.

I now become public and digital.


I'll probably go through my books and post sketches, music and photos.
I'll share my ramdom thoughts and words of encouragement.

Let's go.
