1,384 words

Gustave Moreau, Prometheus

Aeschylus’ version, Prometheus Bound, has generated different symbolic interpretations across the centuries. Starting with the Renaissance, Prometheus has been seen as a symbol of consciousness struggling against arbitrary power.[1]

This was captured in essence by Goethe, circa 1771, who presented the image of the Promethean Man who, decades later, Friedrich Nietzsche would write about in his Birth of Tragedy. Read more …

Posthuman Prospects:
Artificial Intelligence, Fifth Generation Warfare, & Archeofuturism

Giorgio de Chirico, "Les Masques"

Giorgio de Chirico, “Les Masques”

4,851 words

The speed of technological development can be dizzying, and it has become natural for us to expect a never-ending stream of faster, more powerful devices. The future development of such technologies promises increasingly sophisticated machines that will challenge the very notion of man’s supremacy. The dystopian future of intelligent machines endowed with astonishing capabilities, whose very existence might cause them to supersede humanity, is being enthusiastically pursued.

Reflections on Olaf Stapledon’s Odd John, Part 2

Part 2 of 3 (part 1 here)

Alan Watts’ notion of “fascinating ugliness” leads us to another important theme is the disquieting or even repulsive “beauty” of John and his kind. Here is Jacqueline:

But though passably ‘human,’ according to the standards of Homo sapiens, she was strange. Were I an imaginative writer, and not merely a journalist, I might be able to suggest symbolically something of the almost “creepy” effect she had on me, something of its remote and sleepy power. Read more …

It may be less evident, however, what the lack of a meaningful purpose in life is doing to millions of the best men and women of our race as individuals. That is because most of these believe, mistakenly, that they do have purpose in their lives.

Supra-humanisme

Brekerstudio44,351 words

PRESENTATION

Nous sommes à un point crucial dans le temps : un moment de transition aussi important que l’émergence de l’homo sapiens, ou le commencement de la civilisation après la révolution néolithique.

Vers le milieu du XIXe siècle, mais dès lors d’une manière toujours plus pressante – à cause de l’accélération de l’histoire –, l’homme commença à comprendre qu’il devait interagir dans un environnement radicalement nouveau. Read more …
