Free Falling into Abstraction of Consciousness We are on the precipice of a new abstraction of consciousness. A critical junction in the evolution of mankind. The technologies of Artificial Intelligence (AI), genetic modifications, quantum computing, surgical implants, and virtual realities are building the components for humans to enter an alternative form of reality.

Pleroma's Void Continued “I’m thirsty.” Amos rasped through his cracked throat. The doctor turned and considered Amos through flat eyes. “You’ll get water if you tell President Belial how you accessed Kairos.” Kairos, the military code name for Pregnant Time, was a highly structured singularity in space; an apparent life form that offered either a [...]
Welcome to Pleroma's Void! Welcome to my humble effort to tell the story of Pleroma's Void. It is a story that has been bubbling out of me for at least five years. It is a story I believe must be told. It is a story about us, humanity, or lack thereof. It is a timeless [...]

How Emotions Are Made Is an emotional superconscious in our future? A networking of our brains through artificial intelligence? If so, what does it mean for our us, as individuals and as a society and culture? To help guide me on this quest, I read How Emotions Are Made by Dr. Lisa Feldman Barrett, a University [...]
Science recognizes the limitations of our consciousness to perceive our world. Our mind filters out "noise," categorizes to aid in recognition, predicts to save energy, and misses objects in front of us.
