Transcript: Robin Wall Kimmerer — The Intelligence in All Kinds of Life

Transcript: Robin Wall Kimmerer — The Intelligence in All Kinds of Life | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Ms. Krista Tippett, host: “Why is the world so beautiful?” This is a question Robin Wall Kimmerer pursues as a botanist and also as a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation. She writes, “Science polishes the gift of seeing, indigenous traditions work with gifts of listening and language.” An expert in moss — a bryologist — she describes mosses as the “coral reefs of the forest.” She opens a sense of wonder and humility for the intelligence in all kinds of life we are used to naming and imagining as inanimate.

Toward a Global Immune System - P2P Foundation

Toward a Global Immune System - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"The fusion of human and technology takes us into an unheard world, often described as populated by quasi-living species that would relegate us to the rank of alienated agents emptied of their identity and consciousness. I argue instead that our world is woven by simple, though invisible, perspectives, which — if we become aware of them — may renew our ability of judgment in order to maintain our autonomy. I became myself aware of these invisible perspectives by observing and practicing a real time collective net art experiment called the Poietic Generator. As the perspectives unveiled by this experiment are invisible, I have called them Anoptical Perspectives (i.e. non-optical), by analogy to the Optical Perspective of the Renaissance. Later I have realized that these perspectives are holding their cognitive structure from the political origin of our language. Accordingly, it is possible to define certain cognitive criteria for assessing the Legitimacy of the Anoptical Perspectives just like some artists and architects of the Renaissance have defined the geometrical criteria that establish the legitimacy of the optical one. Finally I argue that — if we apply those criteria to the technological artifacts which pretend to autonomy or tend to invade our bodies and minds — we could move from the status of Selected to the role of Selectors in the Darwinian selection of artificial species. Therefore we could emulate a kind of Global Immune System that would prevent the takeover by some illegitimate bodies. Towards which direction? Nothing less than an emerging era of ethics where systemic predation would have vanished. I propose to call this era: Aethogenesis."

Alignment - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Opinion is a supposition elevated to the status of a conclusion held to be right but not substantiated by positive proof—rational or evidential. Because disagreement means difference of opinion, disagreement often escalates into a dispute as to whose opinion is right. When the dispute is not resolved through the logic of argument, the illogic of might tends to enter the realm of right , sometimes resulting in violent conflict.

Effects of Algorithm Awareness - P2P Foundation

Effects of Algorithm Awareness - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
"The rise in prevalence of algorithmically curated feeds in online news and social media sites raises a new question for designers, critics, and scholars of media: how aware are users of the role of algorithms and filters in their news sources? This paper outlines an approach to studying how users perceive the algorithmic "curation" of their feeds, using Facebook as a sample case. Such a problem presents particular challenges when, as is common, neither the user nor the researcher has access to the actual proprietary algorithms at work."

Common Libraries - P2P Foundation

Common Libraries - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

""We believe there is an urgent and pressing need to evolve libraries so that they may serve as bastions of a 21st century knowledge commons, functioning as trusted and impartial platforms for the production, exchange and consumption of knowledge and know-how. We are therefore using our expertise in design, technology, community engagement and social enterprise to work closely with library service users and providers to that end. Our ultimate aim is to empower people to co-design and deliver new library services in our increasingly open source society, such that they are responsive to technological advancement and fast-changing local needs, as well as positioned to make the most of emergent socio-economic opportunities. The intention, then, is to revitalise the public library ethos and render library services more relevant, useful and sustainable in their appeal to (and involvement of) broad-ranging audiences in our digital age."

Epistemologies of the South - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"In a world of appalling social inequalities people are becoming more aware of the multiple dimensions of injustice, whether social, political, cultural, sexual, ethnic, religious, historical, or ecological. Rarely acknowledged is another vital dimension: cognitive injustice, the failure to recognize the different ways of knowing by which people across the globe run their lives and provide meaning to their existence. This book shows why cognitive injustice underlies all the other dimensions; global social justice is not possible without global cognitive justice.

Difference between revisions of "Rosa Zubizaretta on Meaning-Making Social Technologies" - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"he good news from my perspective, is that we as humans have actually been developing effective ways to make meaning together, across a wide diversity of initial perspectives. However, many of the "social technologies" that make this possible are not yet widely known, and much less widely applied. Still, just as we already have technologies to generate power from the sun (and only need to invest in them to make them more widely available) we also already have powerful human and social technologies that are largely untapped.

Fourth Singularity - P2P Foundation

Fourth Singularity - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"If weapons were the trigger for our language, both continued to evolve together until they were almost inseparable, so much that we now live within their complex entanglement. Even more refined than military weapons, I believe that the mother of all weapons is now invisible, immaterial and essentially logical: that is Capital and Money. Unlike the previous Singularity where weapons were used by dominated peers in order to threaten the dominant ones, the monetary weapon is now exclusively in the hands of the dominants (that is not the elites). Moreover, by driving the technological development, this weapon is becoming an instrument of total domination. Indeed, Capital — traditionally seen as the accumulation of stocks and means of production — has been suddenly dematerialized in the form of complex economic and symbolic values activated by robots and Artificial Intelligence working for an ever smaller number of people; i.e. the Vectorialist Class which owns the vectors of our interactions (Wark 2004).

Trialectics - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"Trialectics is a synthesis of basically the same systems of thought that appeared in the 20th century under different names, such as "ecology of mind", "unitary thought", "general systems thinking", "cybernetics" or "synergetics". Trialectics is the third essential current of the logical thinking that evolved from Aristotle's formal logic and Hegel's dialectics. Therefore, we are first going to explore the basic axioms of formal logic and dialectics and then compare them with trialectics.

Logic Trees for Inclusive Discourse - P2P Foundation

Logic Trees for Inclusive Discourse - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
"Making political decision-making truly inclusive is always challenging. Diversity of concerns and perspectives to be considered is a significant driver of complexity. How much inclusiveness can be achieved is limited by how much diversity can be integrated without losing the ability to organize constructive discourses that lead to adequate decisions, and that achieve this within a reasonable timeframe. I propose that “logic tree” methods of the so-called “Theory of Constraints” are highly promising as a means of managing this complexity in a logically and socially sound and inclusive manner. Mapping concerns by such logic trees allows to identify power structures (which turn up as root causes for concerns), conflicts, and to discover and discuss innovative ideas. The application of these methods to Internet governance and sustainable development objectives should be tried and researched."

Using millions of data points measured over a long period of time in real settings, which Pentland calls ‘living laboratories,’ the author has monitored human behavior on an unprecedented scale…Pentland’s research also offers lessons for policymakers and business people. He advances a new way to protect privacy by creating something of a property right for personal information…Social Physics is a fascinating look at a new field by one of its principal geeks.” (http://socialphysics.media.mit.edu/book/)

"Search systems, as several participants at the Deep Search conference noted, is an essential component of the Web. And given the importance of the Web, and its embeddedness into multiple key aspects of life, the society cannot do without one. The architecture and protocols of the Internet and the Web might be open, developed by IETF via open process, running mostly Free Software, but the architecture of search systems remains closed. This is not good enough. As part of the democratic practice of the common, we have to have search systems built on the basis of IETF and Free Software principles. We need Open Process search systems.
