Metaphysical “Choices” – Consciousness, Part 2

By | October 9th, 2015|Evolved, Metaphysics|0 Comments

Can a silicon-based machine achieve consciousness? It is becoming an increasingly pressing question as scientists move closer to artificial intelligence. Yet we don't understand our own consciousness, so how would we know? Maybe it already has happened... We don't understand what is consciousness, how consciousness came to exist, or why it exists. Because we don't [...]

Metaphysical “Choices” – Consciousness

By | September 17th, 2015|Evolved, Metaphysics, You|2 Comments

Consciousness is something we intuitively believe we understand. After all, in many ways it is who we are personally. Yet try to define it and the meaning becomes elusive. American Philosopher Thomas Nagel describes another organism as conscious when we mean "there is something it is like to be that organism... something it is like [...]

Chance – Does Humanity Have Any?

By | September 1st, 2015|Evolved, Time Theory|0 Comments

Does chance exist in our reality? Do we live in an indeterminate universe? Two different questions, but closely related. The first asks whether anything is truly random. The second incorporates the first but also asks whether we can actively change how the future plays out. Is there room in our universe for free will? You [...]

Cosmology Thoughts

By | July 14th, 2015|Cosmology, Evolved|0 Comments

Bubble Universes, Multi-universes, D-Branes, and others - there are no shortage of theories about how our universe is structured. Like most economic forecasts, they are probably all wrong (sorry, my inner financial analyst couldn't resist). This is no slam of the great minds of our time, it is simply a reflection of how little we [...]

Present State

By | July 6th, 2015|Christianity, Evolved, Judaism|0 Comments

The challenge of Presence is a big part of Evolved. Presence both in the spatial and temporal sense. Mahayana Buddhism talks about Zen through meditation, a way of seeking emptiness for enlightenment. Judaism describes God in one form as Present. There is something special about the present, being present. In our world we tend to [...]

Silicon Life in Evolved

By | July 3rd, 2015|Evolved, Spiritual|0 Comments

What defines life is a central question in Evolved. Robots and humans have equal rights in the distant future of Evolved. Robots are all but indistinguishable from humans in appearance, are highly creative, dexterous, and even emotional. The robots/ androids in Evolved are not like Data from Star Trek, a character that always fascinated me, [...]

The 'Two into One' theme in Evolved extends from particle physics, through the reality surrounding us, up to cosmology.
