One or the other

May 9, 2013

One dwells within

the other is an errant tent.

One is silent

the other cries out.

One is sitting in the garden

the other moans before the wall.

One is a Light

the other lights a candle.

One is without burden

the other is a stone.

Have you met the other?

…This is how Adam changed

Asimo 2

September 7, 2009

A while back a nifty little robot, cute looking in its non aggressive outfit, made me realize that we are designing our way towards extinction; shifting our focus away from Nature unto virtual lifeforms that do not need what is slowly becoming scarce.

These Kevlar-platinum-silicone images in the likeness of their human creators may one day harbor biological tissue, brains optimized for survival through exo-skeletal biospheres in an inhospitable environment such as the damaged ecosystem we are slowly producing.

Given the speed of our technological progress and with a little bit of trial and error robotsĀ  such as Asimo – I’m already making sure I spell his name right – will soon, very soon, recognize the world in bytes and pieces and will be able to act upon it in a deliberate manner… for good and for bad, until technological break down do us part.

Evolution works in mysterious ways…
