The idea of nonduality is simple and elegant: there is no separation between mind and body. If the mind comes from the body, and the body comes from the universe, then the universe is mind. It’s not some sort of mystical idea. It’s simply math. Biology boils down to chemistry, to physics, then to math.
This essay is in response to The End Is A.I.: The Singularity Is Sci-Fi’s Faith-Based Initiative. In futurist circles there’s the idea of the Singularity, a point in time when artificial intelligence grows so intelligent that it can make itself even more intelligent, causing it to rapidly surpass human intelligence. The term “singularity” is inherently … [Read more…]
To think of a human as a physical body is completely backward. Humans are not bodies. Humans are minds. Humans are technology. When you pick up a rock and use it as a hammer, it’s mind that’s doing that. When you use Google to tap the intelligence of the Internet, it’s mind doing that. There … [Read more…]
You 3D-scan a room with your phone’s camera, then enter it with the Oculus Rift. Your Facebook friend uses their phone’s front-facing camera to talk to you, and software magic puts them in the 3D room.

The world is nondualistic: mind and body are one. You are not a being separate from the rest of the cosmos, you are the cosmos. You, my friend, are a universal ocean with whirlpools inside. Nature expresses you. It is you. Just as a leaf falling from a tree can do no wrong, so are … [Read more…]
Novel micro-governments will reshape humanity. Using science to develop new ways of human organization is the future. Strategies like the Free State Project where people move to small states and influence local politics, and seasteading, where big boats and small islands are used to test new types of governments, are going to fundamentally reshape the … [Read more…]
There are no coincidences. Randomness and chaos are illusions seen by minds inside the universe. With broader perspectives they resolve into harmony and order. Reality runs on physics. Physics ultimately boils down to mathematical equations. Equations boil down to patterns and numbers. There are no coincidences in the patterns of numbers. It’s not a coincidence … [Read more…]
Vlog just looks stupid. Blog makes sense because we often use bl as a cluster (black, blue, bloke), but we don’t use vl. Blog comes from weblog, and if the videos are on the web and they’re a log, it’s still a blog. There is some purpose in using the term vlog, because it immediately … [Read more…]
