Science As a New Tower of ‘Babble’
Complexity – a patchwork quilt of misunderstanding and confusion tied together ‘by hook or by crook’.
Complex systems are the result of our collective blindness to the simple interconnectedness of our universe.
Why is the emerging view of our universe – no longer a Cosmological and Cosmogonic garden of the good, true and beautiful – now turning into this phantasm of complexity?
Where did we go wrong?
Was it the creation and maintaining of the expectation that we could comprehend and grasp the whole of our Cosmos within one perspective?
Were the applications of the science we created so profit bearing that we began to take more than our fare share?
Was it the tempo at which our scientists – not even slowed down by the ethical and moral considerations which constitute our navigation systems down the roads of evolution – that have brought us to this place much too soon and with so much needless suffering (for animals and humans)?
Are we to continue abandoning our organic (and real) ascendancy for artificial (and synthetic) correlates?
The ends are NOT justified by their means! They are determined by them.

DARPA Envisions the Future of Machine Learning
This is an example of what I referred to earlier in some of my posts. This one is about probabilistic programming. Our government is spending our money on research that isn’t even capable of achieving the goals it sets for itself.
They may be able to create semi-intelligent drones with this kind of research, but they will never achieve their aim of intelligent machines.
