I came across this foundational piece through DJBLUE’s Mind Field, and we liked it so much that we edited an entire video around it using other Creative Commons licensed footage and photos. You can check out “The Great Turning” here: http://www.ebbandflow.tv/bl...

I can’t believe there haven’t been more reviews! This is quite possibly my favourite spoken word piece on ccMixter!

I’m working on a song for it, here is a visual taste:

Hi Illusive Mind, just been going through ccMixter stuff today while at Music Hackday in SF, and was psyched to see you were working on a song for new system.

Nice : )


The singularity…

It’s coming, not quite there yet. It’s a natural algorithm, just as the brain reaches 10 billion cells each with 100,000 connections, consciousness emerges. When the human population reaches 10 bill and you’ve got 100,000 FB friends, the global mind will be self aware. Physical matter will be programmable, energy will be free. Teleportation of matter will be no different than surfing the web. Things you believed would always be impossible will happen on a daily basis until you are no longer surprised. It will happen so quickly and yet so naturally we won’t notice we aren’t really human anymore, then again we never really are…our “system” is bacteria, parasitism, predation. That will change into mutual causation, instant fulfillment of ultimate potential and creative expression, leisure.

As Marshall McCluhan said “The medium is the message” Here is another favorite quote:

“Be like a small child, give up every preconceived notion, follow humbly into whichever and whatever abyss nature leads you, or you shall learn nothing” -Aldous Huxley

Short and useful. I can see this in anything from house music to a rap intro. Cool.
