Transcendent machines





"Someone once said plants invented animals to carry them around. Well, I think the Earth invented human beings to build machines; and those machines will be the consciousness of the Earth. Have you not noticed that these machines are made of the Earth? They are made of gold and silver and arsenic and copper and iridium. They are the stuff of the Earth, organised by primate fingers into more complex arrangements than the Earth could achieve through geological folding, glaciation, volcanism, what have you. We do the fine-tuning; but the Earth is beginning to think."

There are days I feel like her, as if I'm coming apart at the seams.

I like McKenna's comment. Who knows, maybe he's right. It's a theory, like everything else.

Nice stuff you got, very interesting to read. By the way a friend of mine who likes to get Viagra is making an essay about this interesting subject.

David Coles said...

Of course this is what is happening. Pretty dam obvious! The question is....who and what is building this machine to house consciousness. My answer is obviously the energy that currently guides those nimble human fingers - FEAR! And what does fear create....CONTROL! WAKE UP PEOPLE before this prediction becomes reality. Because once housed in a machine there will be no getting out whether it is from the restructuring of atoms or not.

There is another way and that is for consciousness to live without the need for physical matter.So lets get on it NOW! We are so far behind the 8-ball that we can't even see the hypocrisy in the fact that we continue to murder and eat our animals friends - you bloody idiots! Say it the way it is and we just might wake up!

Thanks for the nice post. Do you know.. How To Be More Confident A number of men need tips and advice on how to be more confident with women. Women adore confident men who believe in their own abilities and themselves. Kama Lifestyles dating coaching specialises in teaching men how to be confident.It doesn’t depend on personal traits and characteristics, but can be learned by anyone. It does, however, take some work to turn negative thoughts and behaviours into something positive, and no one can do the work but the man who needs to change his attitude.

You're right. I've always been intrigued by the Boas case, in part, because the woman seems much like a "modern" Gray in many respects. And there's definitely some resonance with Strieber's depiction. bandar agen sbobet, 338a terpercaya
