Critical Balance: The Human Singularity and The Technological Singularity

with one comment

The Evolution of the YOUnique Self is the Key in Creating a Balance between our Humanity and our Technology

A Scenario:

A tangible Ecology-of-Mind unfolds as more and more human connections occur globally. This dramatic acceleration of creative working and productive human synergies globally becomes a recognized, significant and measurable wave, but is still occurring within a very small percentage of the total human population. This relative mass of highly potent Hu-connections produce greater, and more productive, human “creative working” Synergy’s BUT there is a limit based on humanity’s own evolution.  It becomes known that this important wave of emergent human synergies can only spread to a greater percentage of the human population IF there is a dramatic increase in that human population’s ability to recognize, value and development their innate, natural and gifted Self.

Let’s assume this occurs, that this recognition and focused development of one’s Natural-Self begins to take hold, becomes a cultural mandate, becomes even “cool” at all age levels, and a central and organic “identity-development” thread within our educational and social worlds. We have now acclerated human evolution. Now, this process can then be visualized as a spiral-vortex with these now more proliferative Human Synergies happening around the globe and among a greater and greater percentage of the human population and over the coming two to three human generations.

This more intentional “Evolution of Self” is the basis for a viable and powerful Ecology-of-Mind. 

I see this measureable and tangible Ecology-on-Mind movement as a Human-Singularity. EcoMind is then the key to generating the critical balance to the now emergent synergies occurring in parallel in our technological world. These evolving technological synergies has been given a name. It is referred to simply as “The Singularity.” (V. Vinge, R. Kurzweil)

This movement of discovery and development of our more “Natural Self’s” will lead to an acceleration of robust human creative working-synergies yet this idea of an Ecology-of-Mind is theoretical and conceptual to date (http://bit.ly/StepstoanEcologyofMindBateson).

Human evolution, as a movement (in colloquial fashion I refer to it as – The EvoRevo!), is not recognized as significant, or as an emergent marketplace or industry, although it is, in fact, happening all around us.

More importantly, our ability to recognize and then live our natural and innate gifts and dispositions, or our Natural-Self, and bring forward a more dominant force of resultant innate and powerful human synergies, is lagging severely behind the now recognized as emergent technology-synergy cycle – the now recognized, and named,  Technological Singularity: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technological_singularity

I see two Singularities, one Human and one Technological, and they are destined to connect: two converging singularities – that of the human being as a potential and having an innate, emerging and natural Self, and that of individual technologies.  Each, as it approaches greater clarity and coherence produces natural synergies.  Each synergetic and emergent wave, illustrated as an spiraling-singularity, is capable of balancing the force of the other. The latter tech-synergetic wave-as-spiral is recognized, the former not so much.

It is the evolution of the, and our, individual, natural and innate Self, and by natural consequence the potential global human synergies this evolution would create, that lags behind in this dual-spiral/dual-singularity convergent possibility.  And this lack of maturation of the human-singularity both a individual “Self’s” and as a more whole system of synergetic Self’s, is what needs our immediate attention. Without providing human developmental balance to our ever accelerating technological world we, humanity, will be managed more and more obviously by it over the next 2-3 generations… and therein cease to see ourselves as just that, a humanity.

Speaking of Human Synergy… and work to be done:

I am looking for development synergy with others at is concerns 4 interconnected variables.

1) The idea of an inherent, emerging and objectifiable Ecology-of-Mind wave or EcoMind movement;

2) The Technology/Singularity wave as another unfolding movement;

3) The idea that these two wave fronts are part of a larger movement and are playing out in parallel because they are innately interconnected in a fundamentally complementary way; and

4) The missing human literacy (discovery and living of our YOUnique “Natural Self”) and inherent acceleration of the evolution of human synergy globally that “can” (and IMO must) strike the critical balance (in waves/vortices1 & 2). 

2 Emergent Singularities Meet to become One

Critical Balance: The Coming Convergence of Two Complementary Emergent Movements

Visualized, I see this as 2 vortices moving towards their innate connecting moment, and once they make that connection, the topological equivalent would be a dynamic toroid. Unfortunately #4 is far behind in its development and this is the focus of my basic and applied theoretical work, and software and socnet app-systems development efforts (*See below link for app-suite discussion)

Assume that during pre-toroidal manifestation there are two spirals representing two convergent “waves” with the tangible coherence of each, as marketplace and industry identification, e.g.  as a recognized emergent industry) is represented the forward or more and more pointed tips of each spiral become more obvious, and as they converge one to the other… and produce a singular toroidal image.
