Becoming Ourselves - memetics

Becoming Ourselves - memetics | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

Our biological limitations often make us feel uncomfortable with our own humanity but at the end of the day we are forced to admit that we are human. For some of us this may be easier than others. Despite how we may feel mentally we are biologically human and we might as well embrace it. We are seeking to transcend into something greater so we will have more potential as human beings. We are finally in a position where augmentations are becoming a reality.

With our brains being capable of so much It would be a shame to limit them to our current biology. We can start out with the basics like tattoos and piercings and remember how the first time we were modified we felt ourselves transforming. While some of us got tattoos and piercings for subcultural reasons there were those of us who got tattoos and piercings to look and feel like the people we truly were. I feel that this is what augmentations are all about and that we will continue to transform ourselves in the future to push our physical boundaries and become what we desire.

reaction-diffusion - A cross-platform implementation of various reaction-diffusion systems. - Google Project Hosting | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

Ready is a program for exploring continuous cellular automata, including reaction-diffusion systems. OpenCL is used as the computation engine, to take advantage of the many-core architectures on graphics cards and modern CPUs. OpenCL also allows rules to be written in a text format and compiled on the fly. Ready supports a compact XML-based file format so that images and rules can be shared easily.

Is the Universe a Computer? New Evidence Emerges. | Nova Spivack - Minding the Planet | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
In the article, Gates asks, “How could we discover whether we live inside a Matrix? One answer might be ‘Try to detect the presence of codes in the laws that describe physics.’” And this is precisely what he has done. Specifically, within the equations of supersymmetry he has found, quite unexpectedly, what are called “doubly-even self-dual linear binary error-correcting block codes.”
