“The Life Cycle is a podcast series dreamt up by Klang Games, conceived as an excuse to procrastinate the development of the studio’s simulation MMO, Seed, a game about human survival and exoplanet settlement”, according to their website. (https://www.thelifecyclepodcast.com/home/#about) In their latest episode of the podcast, they dealt with the question whether we live in a computer simulation and what our chances are that we do actually live in such a simulation. Elon Musk argues that chances are very high that we do not live in base reality. IEET Fellow Stefan Lorenz Sorgner demonstrates that we do not have any good reason for regarding this claim as plausible:. https://www.thelifecyclepodcast.com/episodes/2019/11/1/the-simulation?fbclid.

l. Machiavelli has been for a half millennia reviled as an unscrupulous philosopher when it is unfair to presume that a philosopher who was raised in the 15th century and died in the year 1527 could subscribe to 20th-21st-century ethics. Machiavelli’s Europe was a continent where the devoutly religious would sometimes practice excruciatingly painful torture on heretics. Next, to them, Machiavelli was practically benign. Machiavelli can be considered the first modern philosopher in that he deliberately, cautiously attempted to escape the philosophical clutches of the past.

You don’t switch off the union’s AI overlay in your glasses because you’re a bad cop. You’re every bit as good as somebody call Sofía Rodriguez would have to be to become and remain one in Arkansas - and you wouldn’t want to forfeit the union’s legal protection, which is tied to using their version of the AI.

On 25 September 2019, IEET affiliate scholar Steve Fuller gave a Codex Talk at the Royal Society of London, commemorating the ‘top 50 innovators’ on the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci. Da Vinci authored the ‘Codex’ in question, which is a notebook of his thoughts, including a drawing of ‘Vitruvian Man’, which begins Fuller’s talk. The ‘fork in the road for the future of humanity’ refers to transhumanism and posthumanism, which Fuller treats as projecting radically alternative visions for the human condition.

The five stages of ecological grief were climate denial, ethno-nationalistic anger, economic depression, and then bargaining with Alison Brun’s company but quickly accepting her terms. She was, after all, the most famous environmental urban engineer in the world, the woman who saved Chennai (for a while), and the last person to leave Houston besides the soldiers and biologists of the informally named North Hell Base.

It is now fashionable to condemn our species’ exalted self-regard for precipitating that apocalypse in waiting known as the ‘Anthropocene’. Nevertheless, I shall heretically argue that we really know more than we normally think we do. But I don’t mean what Michael Polanyi famously called ‘tacit knowledge’, the context-based type of knowing that cannot be reduced to verbal or mathematical formulas. On the contrary, I mean the sort of knowledge that is generated from the production of verbal and mathematical formulas. They lay down the cognitive infrastructure that enables us to take advantage of opportunities, should they arise in our experience. The result is a state of mental preparedness that theologians have associated with faith and hop.
