The Problem of Consciousness: The Self Aware Internet, Thinking Robots and the Future of Man-Machine Interactions

Prepare yourselves, I'm going to say it. We live in amazing times. Technology is advancing geometrically--especially in the area of Artificial Intelligence and computer memory. We may very well be at the threshold of Robots who truly think for themselves. Here is an excellent piece on this from the Daily Mail

The potential consciousness of the Internet itself is also becoming a topic of some considerable inquiry, even though a solid definition of consciousness is problematic.
This is Computational Neuroscientist Terrence Sejnowski's piece on the Internet from Edge: The World Question Center. And here is an interesting post on Self-Aware Spam.
I have to go now, I'm creeping myself out.

The Virginia Tech Massacre

My prayers go out to all the innocent victims of this horrifying crime.
Here is the In Memoriam site.
Any news organization who is showing the video tape of the monster who did this should be deeply ashamed.
To promote or glorify this senseless act in any way is evil beyond words.
I believe in a God of Absolute Love and Perfect Justice and right now my prayers are for the power of this Loving God to wrap around the families who have suffered such an unthinkable loss.
God Bless,

Kurt Vonnegut- A Life in Letters.

Kurt Vonnegut died yesterday in New York at the age of 84.
I read one of his most celebrated works: "Slaughterhouse Five" while in Brother Tom's Lit class in High School. The imagery of it has stayed with me in the form of a crown of white yellow over the shadow edges of ornate buildings. A visual Haiku. It is the novelization of Mr. Vonnegut's direct experience of the fire-bombing of Dresden.
Here is a thorough piece on this one of a kind American author from the LA Times.
And another from Myway.
Rest in Peace Mr. Vonnegut.

Neil Marshall's The Descent

Just watched Neil Marshall's Appalachian Cave Horror; "The Descent." (I know I'm late, but my excuse for not watching it in a theater would bore you to death.)
If you enjoyed his previous film "Dog Soldiers," (I certainly did.) you will have a great time with this one. I must warn you however that it is very claustrophobic at times. At one point I had to pause the DVD to geta breath of fresh air.
Marshall is a Writer/Director who is not afraid to go to the bleaker edges of life. In fact the original title for this film was "The Dark."
So, get an oxygen tank and a bowl of popcorn or almonds if you eat low carb and follow Sarah, Juno and the rest of the gals into the bowels of the earth for some tight squeezed, hard to breath, help me

April Fool's Day and Driving to Grants' or Made You Look!

My Mom is a terrific lady. with my Dad (also terrific) she raised five boys. She was never however a Joke-ster. I mean she would laugh and she would tell jokes from time to time etc. But she was primarily about the business of cooking meals for her huge brood and doing laundry and keeping the house immaculate, telling us she loved us,(and praying for us) in short my Mom was then and is now a textbook example of the perfect loving Domestic Engineer. That is why the coming of April first was always a surprise for me. I remember one incident in particular, it was a Saturday morning and we were driving to the Grant's department store. (We went there a lot on weekends.) On the way to the on ramp we always passed through a neighborhood of tightly grouped houses. So this morning as we were passing through my Mom said,"Look at that huge hole in that house!"I turned immediately to look and said of course, "Where?" My brother Jim turned as well, craning his head to the side of mine as we both peered out the back window of our Impala station wagon. "April Fool!" my Mom called out. She has gotten me many times over the years. I never expect it, so I always look. We live a continent apart now-so the Fool has to come by phone. Maybe this year I'll get my Mother first. I have to go now and think up something real good. Love you Mom!
Happy April Fool's Day Everybody,
