Now that we are becoming more aware that we live in our own individual communication cul de sac’s we need to be looking at the reasons that have created this situation. Technology has streamlined communication and by it’s nature it is fundamentally binary. Biological communication is a messy subjective affair. Technological communication without the nuances of body language parses our inflection in computational representation, bits, that are subject to signal loss as well as being binary.
With biological or endosomatic evolution genetic diversity is built on mistakes in our genetic code. That error over time becomes an asset. With the rapidity of out technological or exosomatic evolution that asset of recombination creating diversity has been excluded. Exosomatic evolution prefers exclusion of error and prefers exactly reproducible results, sans nuance. This is the singularity.
Ontological Singularity – Tom O Dea
– Humans – Main means of communication
– Computers- Representation as linking understanding
Info theory > Signal Loss
Computational representation – Bits – Coded
Computer Representation > Low ontological representation
