And from there I fell into his exhilarating and highly addictive Vision mini series:


Thought that Vision series was a cool presentation of the bio/logogram idea.

Vision's position as an entity created solely to function through the logogram without having any particularly demanding needs to otherwise make judgments in accordance to was novel to me at the time, a year ago, but as of now, I am less sure of the differences between 'natural' born humans and androids as both creations seem motivated by the socialization of values rather than the negentropy of the species.

Extremely interesting take on the Vision series!

What a wonderful phrase to contemplate!

Much of what western sci-fi says about emergent artificial intelligence, eastern philosophy says about human intelligence, so I can dig the idea of that being a largely false dichotomy.

for the second part, if I'm interpreting those phrases correctly, I suppose the hope is that the socialization of values attends to the negentropy of the species? Though a lack of consensus on the ways & means of the process remains particularly problematic!

Speaking of cybernetic hive minded power fantasies, I re-read GM's Marvel Boy this weekend, which is some super strong medicine!
