Juliana Mundim, Waking Life.


” I think we have a feeling of almost spiritual communion. And that feeling might be transient, but I think it’s what we live for. If we’re looking at the highlights of human development, you have to look at the evolution of the organism… and then at the development of its interaction with the environment. Evolution of the organism will begin with the evolution of life… perceived through the hominid… coming to the evolution of mankind. Neanderthal, Cro-Magnon man. Now, interestingly, what you’re looking at here are three strings: biological, anthropological– development of the cities, cultures– and cultural, which is human expression. Now, what you’ve seen here is the evolution of populations, not so much the evolution of individuals. And in addition, if you look at the time scales that’s involved here– two billion years for life, six million years for the hominid, years for mankind as we know it– you’re beginning to see the telescoping nature of the evolutionary paradigm. And then when you get to agricultural, when you get to scientific revolution and industrial revolution, you’re looking at years, years, years. You’re seeing a further telescoping of this evolutionary time. What that means is that as we go through the new evolution, it’s gonna telescope to the point we should be able to see it manifest itself… within our lifetime, within this generation. The new evolution stems from information, and it stems from two types of information: digital and analog. The digital is artificial intelligence. The analog results from molecular biology, the cloning of the organism. And you knit the two together with neurobiology. Before on the old evolutionary paradigm, one would die and the other would grow and dominate. But under the new paradigm, they would exist… as a mutually supportive, noncompetitive grouping. Okay, independent from the external. And what is interesting here is that evolution now becomes an individually centered process, emanating from the needs and the desires of the individual, and not an external process, a passive process… where the individual is just at the whim of the collective. So, you produce a neo-human with a new individuality and a new consciousness. But that’s only the beginning of the evolutionary cycle… because as the next cycle proceeds, the input is now this new intelligence. As intelligence piles on intelligence, as ability piles on ability, the speed changes. Until what? Until you reach a crescendo in a way… could be imagined as an enormous instantaneous fulfillment of human, human and neo-human potential. It could be something totally different. It could be the amplification of the individual, the multiplication of individual existences. Parallel existences now with the individual no longer restricted by time and space. And the manifestations of this neo-human-type evolution, manifestations could be dramatically counter-intuitive. That’s the interesting part. The old evolution is cold. It’s sterile. It’s efficient, okay? And its manifestations are those social adaptations. You’re talking about parasitism, dominance, morality, okay? Uh, war, predation, these would be subject to de-emphasis. These would be subject to de-evolution. The new evolutionary paradigm will give us the human traits of truth, of loyalty, of justice, of freedom. These will be the manifestations of the new evolution. That is what we would hope to see from this. That would be nice.”

    q ingenua eu fui neh… quando eu deixei esse quote do waking life eu achei q o tal “neo-human” iria ser alcançado sem qq manipulação….

    eu nem considerei q o software do nosso hardware teria um dono… teria uma ideologia diferente da nossa própria… e possíveis más intenções –

    o que ele fala eh a poesia do lance… mas na prática nao sei se vai ser tão bonito…
    mas podia né?
