Seeing One’s SELF Has Now Become a Data Reality of Its Own
This commentary was ignited by the New Scientist article on Life-Logging (Gordon Bell) and Self-Quantification movements, their associated technologies, and psycho-social personal and cultural shifts.
The article title and link: Total recall: Data diaries explain who you really are” http://bit.ly/e9ddTz
After you get the gist of this article, or are fully aware of this new marketplace and its varied and significant implications, consider the following.
The next phase of all this will concern micro – within a single lifetime – “evolution’; and the acceleration of the quality of human synergies Local2Global that will manifest naturally and in parallel – a certain flattening of those 6-degrees of separation and a shift in human productivity.
The missing, shift catalyzing, link is a human evolutionary-ontology that operates equally within and for individuals and human collectives thereof.
This is the work (product systems) I hope to get out… before that micro evolutionary phase called “my lifetime” is over. Links re: facets of those self-evolutionary or evolutionary-technology apps and product systems: http://imonad.wordpress.com/2009/07/15/weme-metrics/ and http://imonad.wordpress.com/2009/08/20/job-posting_-iso-ah-ha-application-suite-development-team-social-networking/
The collective of psycho-socially focused clouds will simply act as cognitive and even meta-cognitive (2025-ish), mirrors of our minds over time… of our Self.
I have documented that the representation of our YOUnique human Self and Hu-Systems thereof can be accomplished visually and in real-time using nth-dimensionally nested toroids (which you can see on my blog if you’re curious). The data that auto-generates these dynamic visual representations are a facet of the above referred to “product systems.”
The market’s psychological – and then behavioral – shift will begin to take affect once we (that micro-mass of first adopters) come…to realize that our “Self” (the who-what-how-where/when-why of the individual) historically is not, for most of us, the Self that we, as uniquely disposed individuals, were innately and naturally born to be and become…
…this is when things will go from the now emerged and highly niche life-logging and Self-Quantification paradigm to the Self-Evolution and, significantly more highly productive, Hu-Synergistic paradigm.
IMO… the paradigm shift from “Self-Quant” and Self-representational marketplace to an Human-Evolutionary marketplace will cross over, from one side to the other, in the next 5-10 years with the shift itself, if I’m lucky, occurring around 2012/13.
The shift will be seen merely as a new way of looking at the whole of our PI behavioral data with another new set of associated apps and tech indicating the break-through of the evolutionary paradigm. I look forward to the possibility of supplying the most critical these shift-catalyzing app-systems.
Between 1986 and 1994 I formulated a plan that saw this process taking 3-generations to fully unfold in the global marketplace.
(See G.E.T.TheVision – a Plan-of-Plans: http://imonad.wordpress.com/2009/07/31/g-e-t-the-vision-defined/ and http://imonad.wordpress.com/2009/09/25/future-connecting-our-younique-ah-has-and-path-of-ah-has/)
So, IMO, we are looking at a timeline – for those not shaking their heads but open to such a probability for full social (read: market) involvement in “Self-Evolutionary” thought and behavior – to occur in and around 2050….
And “Yes.” one of these behavior shifts includes one’s pocketbook… just like it does now for those in this proven now emergent niche market of life-logging, et al, who are right now buying one of hundreds of personal psycho-bio sensors and life-logging tech and apps; having this new domain of PI data manually (at the moment) and auto-uploaded (for some of the apps) to a newer class of socnet spaces and connecting to others around the world in more “conscious” fashion there.
Further (and finally) this for me is the natural balancing that one might envision is needed between the (some form of) Tech-Singularity movement with a now just-emerging Human-Singularity movement.
