Paper

Planetary Consciousness and the Omnipotence of Technology

Abstract: As conclusive, closing thoughts on preceding design practice, this paper attempts to scrape away some of the ancient collected crust that shroud the ‘doors of perception’ (Blake, 1793). Acting as one of many apprentice midwives, present at least, at the bringing-to-life of a new, symbiotic, global super-organism. Of which she stands among the anticipating crowd, hoping, praying that it is not still-born. The organism in question is that of Earth, interconnected with technology, undergoing metamorphosis beyond its self-destruction. An ugly caterpillar, melting itself into an organic mess only to reform and emerge again (Lipton and Bhaerman, 2010). New, fresh, clean and able to fly.

Key terms: Planetary Consciousness, Technology, Dalai Lama, Global Super-Organism, Perception, Question Concerning Technology, Heidegger, Cyberverse, Technokind, ego-node, cybernetic life form node, Nihilism, culture, cosmoses, religion, metaverse, synergy, metaconsciousness, interdependency, omnipotent, demipotent.
