Computers listening to humans. Humans becoming like computers…

Speech recognition software isn’t perfect, but it is a little closer to human this week, as a Microsoft Artificial Intelligence and Research team reached a major milestone in speech-to-text development: The system reached a historically low word error rate of 5.9 percent, equal to the accuracy of a professional (human) transcriptionist. The system can discern words as clearly and accurately as two people having a conversation might understand one another. (1)

Computers listening to humans.

Computers understanding humans.

We finally did it.

But at what cost?

The computers managed to understand us and listen to us, only because we spent zero time and effort in trying to evolve our thought beyond its current level. Instead, we spent all of our effort and time to try to think like computers, thus making the phrase “The computers managed to understand us” more like a tautology or self-fulfilling prophecy.

Yes, the computers now understand us.

And we should not be happy about that…

Electricity, light, Dionysus…

Political favoritism can quite literally be seen from space, according to a new study that finds the home regions of leaders become brighter at night after the person comes to power.

The findings apply mostly to countries with weak political institutions and limited public education. One prominent example was Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo) during the reign of Mobuto Sese Seko. Mobuto, who was president between 1971 and 1997, was born near the small town of Gbadolite. While he was in power, the town flourished.

“Mobuto built a huge palace complex costing millions of dollars, luxury guesthouses, an airport capable of handling Concords, and had the country’s best supply of water, electricity and medical services,” study researcher Paul Raschky, an economist at Monash University in Australia, said in a statement. Years of satellite data reveal Gbadolite as initially dark at night, brightening under Mobuto and quickly fading again after the authoritarian ruler’s exile and death. (1)

Nowadays everyone wants light in order to see.

We are too afraid of the dark, even though the dark has moulded us from the beginning of time. We are children of the Night, grandchildren of Chaos.

Nowadays we like to be called children of Apollo.
But we are offsprings of the Moon.

We may think of Logic as our greatest achievement, but it is Dionysus who dances every noon inside our heads.

Irrational life.
Irrational cosmos.
Irrational men.
Seek the darkness as if it was light.
Everything will be allright.
The light you seek is only inside.

Ceramic, hi-tech materials, the essence of progress…

Ceramic is more hi-tech than we imagine.
Its technology could be used for spacecrafts in the future with much better results than the current “advanced” materials we now have. (1)
What we consider “advanced” is not.
What we consider “old” we will some day call it “new” again.
Any progress moves us away from where we came from.
We all were once gods.
And every step forward is actually a step backwards.
Think too much and forget what you already know.
This is the motto of the era of voidness.
Close your ears.
We all were once gods.
Eating in small ceramic pots…

South Korea, space technology, forced secrets…

The third attempt of South Korea to launch a space rocket failed. Don’t jump to conclusions too fast. The reason behind the failure is not related to Koreans not having the right technology. Its just that the US are afraid of the dissipation of space technology that they do not allow the S. Korean space budget to exceed a certain limit (!!!) – thus limiting it to only 320 millions per yeas as opposed to billions spent each year by US, Japan or India. [1]

Technology and progress today is directly related to available money.

How twisted is the world we live in…

There was a time – not too long ago – when humans progressed via pure thinking, when humanity measured success by measuring how happy its people were, when money was nothing more than a means to facilitate exchange of goods…

How twisted is the world we live in…

Fibonacci, Young, human progress…

The sunflower has two interlaced logarithmic spirals: 21 clockwise spirals and 34 counterclockwise spirals which numbers are subsequent numbers of the Fibonacci sequence! Comparable opposite arrangements of logarithmic spirals, associated with Fibonacci numbers, occur also by the daisy, the fir-apple (5 and 8) and the pineapple (8 and 13).

The number of petals in a flower is also often one of the following numbers: 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34 or 55. For example the lily has three petals, buttercups have five, chicory has 21, daisy has often 34 or 55 petals, et cetera.

All these numbers belong to the Fibonacci sequence: 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, … where each number is obtained from the sum of the two preceding.

Young also postulated the idea the humans progress in a spiral – that explains why we often see ourselves passing through the same point many times, wlthought in a slightly different way.

Could spirals and Fibonacci sequence be in the center of an all new philosophy of life?
