All this technology, I wonder... where is it leading us spiritually ? There are churches and cults on the Web, but more than that I think that the Web leads to free uninhibited thinking. Once thought flow is free, it leads us to a new dimension – that of global intelligence. Finally in Nature(1) I finally got a glimpse of how our Planet's brain looks.
This is a data-miner's view of how scientific information is used across the global networks. One single piece of thought as a paper or publication, as it makes its way across the networked intelligence. Strikingly similar to how our own neural networks work within our brain. Finally our planet has reached a level of evolutionary capacity to think on a global scale, as the neural hardware show evidence of thinking taking place. This 'map of knowledge' is a million brains, aided with computers, Linux, Mac or Windows... breathing , living and thinking.
Fellow Netizens, our time has come !
