Sensorial Divinities


MGoogle is our memory… Google is our memory A place where we shall decide what is machine and whats human… Supercomputers… used as external Prosthesis that guide us and control our daily existence… leading us into a techno-dematerialisation lifestyle… in future they will integrate our physical body, minds, thoughts… Swiping reality… scrolling trough daily life… we are experiencing an age of a technologic and biologic exponential change… a new sensorial revolution…

An artificial way of connecting / disconnecting with the natural world…

Interacting through analogic and electronic signals, guided by information that travels throughout satellites, orbit bodies, created by man that, directly via mobile protheses, act as new divinities controlling via GPS data our daily life performance….AI awakening…

This body as well as landscape as a playground for atoms and molecules will transform into a new physical and even spiritual paradigm… Possibility of an existence of new hybrid species or biological based machines…recording… sending memories… sensations using every day cognitive augmented intelligence.

Transforming society and reality as we know it in the present moment, we are spectators of a precise moment where fiction… magic are becoming science facts. The arrival of internet of things… As technology grows more dominant the universal ambition of humanity remains… greater intelligence…. No other attribute is so desirable… No other so useful..

Here… and on any world we can imagine….

Soon the only thing holding us back will be ourselves….

Our bodies, our brains, and the machines around us may all one day merge, into a single massive communal intelligence.

DNA Revolution, Artificial intelligence; Augmented intelligence; biotech; nanotech… cyborgism, trashumanism..

Connectome… mapping… digitalizing the Human Brain…

building a network map for our thoughts… images… ideas creating a Library of Souls towards the possibility of Digital Immortality…
