‘Trust’ For Sale

Tribe of Trust 2

‘Trust’ For Sale
More of Google’s attempt to become the ‘clearing house’ of truthful, ‘trustful’, and important facts and therewith create a ‘truthful tribe’. I thought we wanted to rid ourselves of tribalism?

So many talented people will never be known, because they work ‘under the radar’ or for being ignored (exiled) as ‘heretics’.

Here is a question: how can even truth, not to mention trust, be systematized when we cannot know all of it as well as its many sources of origination?

Google is creating its own demise with this. It will go down or cause a vast migration of awakened (and non-evangelists) to move to, create, or participate in other search engines.

True research must make it’s own decisions upon what is truthful, trustworthy, and valuable. If we allow a corporation to manage these values, we will enter an age of ‘privatized credibility’.

They will be able to keep people out of the debate (social discourse) by making them non-authoritative. If they can establish metrics then everyone must conform to them.

It’s like believing Marx, Engels, and Lenin were philosophers when they were really children playing with snake-oil in order to sell the idea that a tyranny of Communism was the solution to humanity’s problems.

Science And Technology Run Amok – Nr. 2 – Office Drones!

Office DrohneScience And Technology Run Amok – Nr. 2
Let’s just get it out there and forget the discussion of whether the technology is good for us or not!

When we allow this technology to be sold, we are tacitly accepting the use of drones everywhere. When we buy this technology, we are actively supporting it’s implementation and dissemination! Do we really want these things flying around us? Using them allows our ‘masters’ to hide in plain sight with other drones which are less beneficial to our mutual interests than these shown here!

I define the term “Run Amok” as ‘Without open consideration and debate of the moral, ethical, political, social, sovereignty issues’ in the conception, design, creation, production, distribution, and practice/implementation of technology and science.

‘Something Has To Give!’ – Speaking By Doing…

Behind the Mic‘Something Has To Give!’
Speaking by doing…

I appreciate the technology (as long as it isn’t weaponized) and even admire what has been accomplished thus far. Just I know that to get to the ‘promised land’, they’re going to need to transcend and include the ontologically-based methodologies as are shown in the video!

One trip to Google translate reveals this to be mere hype at present. Hidden Markov models aren’t going to do it, people! That’s like trying to do a radar scan of the ocean and only seeing things you’ve been told to see beforehand. Their example involves capital cities and the meta-framing necessary to differentiate them. Essentially they are building structures (like fingerprints) of ideas and trying to do an ‘algebra’ with them.

The AI paradigm must be ‘fortified’ by epistemologically-based perspectives and methodologies, before we can even think of cognition. Clearly they are already involved in the recognition process, but these missing elements in in artificial intelligence is originating from those doing the work in the video (through their intentions, desires, success criterion,…) without their even noticing it! (Or if they do, they don’t make that clear to the viewer.)

Also, they believe in the mysticism that we need only create the necessary initial conditions (like a soup) and then, through emergence (which they cannot define precisely), intelligence (like life) will pop out!

They will most certainly manage to get the technology to a point that it will become useful (after they’ve shelled out huge sums of money to get there), but they will never reach cognition this way. They will have to part with one of their most sacred dogmas first: the mind is the brain.

The brain is only a part of what we call mind. Our whole bodies are involved with the dialog of mind – from our brains right down to our digestive tracts and even cells (and their constituents).
