    And the widening of this scope also seems to entail the consumption of different accounts of the same phenomena, consistency being negatively correlated with proximity to some extent, hence the prevalence of disinformation and the partisan accusations of such.

    The parochiality of normal humans is to be reckoned with, not ignored. That said I tend to think the scope of the normal human expands over civilizational development, if even discontinuously. Look ahead. What do you see? Is it not rational to account for this preemptively?

    That said, I think the alienation of the luddite needs to be anticipated and preemptively remedied before it becomes socially enflamed and threatens further advancement. All in the interest of mitigating destruction. And virtually everyone becomes a luddite at some stage of some front of...

    I generally think of our environment of automated intelligence as being a heightening platform rather than a sort of suffocating plenum. That is, I think the opportunity for human creativity is limitless, that there will always be both a known unknown and an unknown unknown, and that the latter...

    And that seems more or less guaranteed, so long as the voices/advocates of the 99% remain obstinately allergic to capitalism. edit: but not all of them are.

    If the most capitalistically viable societal permutation involves sedentary and monotonous [but more importantly unfulfilling] existences for the 99%, if no better alternative is realized, no better pathway for profit, then yeah I'd say the totalitarian surveillance state is to be expected...

    Only if we fail to render public welfare capitalistically viable, which is admittedly a profound task, but we are profound constructs.

    Do you, too, sense a zen to be reached here, by virtue of the complexity? An infinite pathway of defining roadmaps, progressing through them, redefining them midway, ad infinitum? It seems maddening, from a perspective of closure-craving, of reaching some immutable utopia. Such a perspective...

    And "the optimal" doesn;t need to be conceived of as some theologically transcendent parameter of the cosmos, but can be understood as a socially, stochastically defined teleology.

    A critical point here. As opposed to the facile "best possible world" thesis that I think is associated with Leibniz, I tend to see the world as oscillating around the optimal, infinitesimally homing in on it, hyperextending here and relapsing there, etc. Which isn;t to say this is a viewpoint...

    Anyway rarity is an exogenous factor of the value of something. Now value is more primarily endogenous, regarding the things that were once rare but are now replicable and freely accessible.

    True, I think there is just a sort of adjustment to be made in the wake of the obliteration of rarity, the end of "the search". I went to a little presentation Alan Licht gave at the Monadnock in Chicago, where he mentioned how the search for a record is no longer the robust experience it once...

    @suspended it seems we've arrived at the post-Fisher stage of Dissensus. The left beyond anti-capitalism, the exiting of capitalist realism, etc. Which isn't to say everyone else has caught up. Pioneers before settlers. Thoughts?

    This seems to be overlooked by almost everyone. Virtually everything I want is freely available online, although I did have to steer desire a bit to arrive at this position.

    Here it is, if you're interested. SCI-Arc is a good source of theory x architecture. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/roughness/id1486891892?i=1000459896739

    Yeah world immersion I think is one of the more unique aspects of video games, as opposed to other narrative media. And yeah Minecraft doesn't make the effort to reach out and steer the players attention. More or less on your own, which is what distinguishes it from the sort of work-adjacent...
