GeneralDigital Winter is Coming ... quote of the month Pin

Quote:
The hive, then, extends itself as part of the environment through the social probings that individual bees enact where the intelligence of the interaction is not located in any one bee, or even a collective of bees as a stable unit, but in the "in-between" space of becoming: bees relating to the mattering milieu, which becomes articulated as a continuum to the social behavior of the insect community. This community is not based on representational content, then, but on distributed organization of the society of nonhuman actors.

This notion of the hive as a kind of headless milieu that moves, acts, and engages with its environment or umvelt relates closely to contemporary theories of swarms and the swarm-logic of networked communication. An emergent structure of multiple bodies or objects functioning in unison, swarm intelligence characterizes computer science algorithms, multi-agent systems, and insects.
Parikka, Jussi. "Insect Media: An Archaeology of Animals and Technology." Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 2010. p. 129

And we, Homo Saps, are the aphids ... zombified by the virus of language ... who are the disposable embodied instrumentalities of the ultimate winter of pure disincarnate intellects ... what Goethe called "the Mothers," what Newton called "Intelligencers" ... that ... who knows ? ... what knows ? ... ultimately may re-invent us to have some sand in their playpens to make mud-pies, or castles, with. Or, erasing the current hologram, and, inventing a new one where they play dumb and re-stage the whole evolutionary farce again,

Of course, I'm just an optimist high on the opiate the virus (language) keeps me addicted to, and, numbed with.
«One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.» Salvador Dali
