..on signs of intended ruin
Yes, it zeros the Google ranking of my articles. But in most other respect it's good news. — If you bookmarked an article of mine or established a link before 2017, please update the URL. It changed. All pages are still there.
For some of your data folders on your Mac (perhaps for the most important ones) Chikoo could organize your files, smarter than the Finder — if its syncing with the Finder would be more elaborated.
Am Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts ist die Hegemonie über Europa und Deutschland nicht mehr zweigeteilt, sondern unumschränkt. — Über Sündenfall und Ohnmacht der Europäischen Union. (it's in German)
Not science and technology are threats to humanity. Threats are about sociology. – All of Hawking's threat statements are populist without any substantial analysis and they obscure all real causes.
Lanier recommends a rational view on artificial intelligence, focused on practical, professional results. – But is his downplaying tactically, denying the political strategic plan behind AI?
How useful actually is a handheld when it's not a phone? I bought an iPod touch (G6) to find out – in particular to find out how to browse my locally stored knowledge base written in HTML.
PART II – My comments on the funding of the non-profit research company OpenAI. – My thoughts on oversight over development of AI and big data algorithms. – OpenAI's attempts to distract from the real threats.
PART I – Is artificial super intelligence the inevitable fate of humanity or simply wishful thinking of a dark political force? – At any rate the idea of ASI is about manipulation of our perception, of thinking and behavior.
1. Analyse der fachlichen Fehler der Einsteinschen Fundamentalphysik des Universums und deren politische Ursachen. 2. Wie diese Sackgasse im Wissenschaftsbetrieb festgeschrieben wird. (it's in German)
The sources and goals of US science policy. – Where Einstein was wrong in fundamental physics. – You can bend light by gravity but you can't retract light once emitted back to its source. – There is no "gravity of the universe".
The drone war's never ending kill list can only be compared with the permanence of the Gulag system's kill list. Its high- tech and its historical ultimacy make the drone war a crime without precedent - ignored in the filter bubble we live in.
The Fujifilm X30 is well-known for its perfect point-and-shoot mode. – I love to use this camera just for the opposite purpose. I disabled any Auto operations: white balance, focus etc. – the excellent EVF makes it possible.
Die Dokumentation "Schlachtfeld Internet" des Deutschen Fernsehens übt sich im Propaganda- Tonfall des Kalten Krieges. – Edward Snowden's Arbeit dagegen widmet sich der Aufklärung. - Ein Missverhältnis .. (it's in German)
Will the godspeed address for interstellar space colonization be like this?: "Good luck! In five thousand years we will meet again. Perhaps then with opposing precepts what humanity should be. So, please stay peaceable!" – Of course it will not.
The boldness of Guanxiu's luohan drawings is artistically exemplary in my view. Even after many steps of reproduction the original artwork speaks to us as unbelievable expressive, vivid and freely developed portraits.
John Kornblum's deceptions about the Ukraine conflict. – The historical guilt of the Adenauer Foundation. – The happily defused tinderbox of the Crimean peninsula. – The final splitting of Europe under the rule of a strategic think tank.
The origins of my design "Joe the Eyelethead".
The algorithm is the new God of our time, the algorithm that predicts and manipulates the peoples' thoughts, that adjusts any opinion and any social behaviour.
I'm afraid I've lost one of my last hopes lightness of being could exist in art. I like Stefanie Schneider's photographs and its narrative style for many years. It is consecutive she performs experiments with short film now ..
EINSTEIN WAS WRONG. BUT TODAY'S ASTROPHYSICISTS FLOP No one can conceive where time comes from and what time really is. – Makes it any sense to come up with the idea there must be an energy that drives scaling of space forward?
Is it really enough to take distance measurements of supernovae or to deduce the distance to the Large Magellanic Cloud to claim: "That's the key to unerstand expansion of the universe." ? – My skeptical first questioning (a draft).
