Artificial DNA WTF?

What in the World? Pandora’s box really opening or what? Are we going to be living in a world of mutants genetically mutated from bacteria. Kinda scary don’t you think?

Is the terminator really coming true? In my blog post yesterday i talked about the power of belief ,  how if ones believes in something eventually  it manifests itself into reality. Look at the Cell Phone & Now Virtual Reality Displays that where once just merely a thought.

So today’s story break out of MSNBC.

It’s alive! Artificial DNA controls life

hmm i see some Terminator & Matrix shyt happening here.

I mean let’s look at Facebook Data, Google Data, Yahoo Chat Data, Email Data, Twitter Data.. All user behavior.. Could artificial intelligence learn from our everyday connection to the world wide web? Because of the internet our everyday behaviors are now stored in a database. Think about it.. What’s a twitter post? Do you use gmail? Everything online is stored. Do you think if data was stored and easily available for us to access that things will become a lot easier for us?

Will we become  smarter and evolve because of the internet? I mean we now don’t have to spend years taking a class on php programming now u can find online tutorials that show u how to code in 24hours.

You know how they say we only use a percentage of our brain? I think that’s because we spend half the time focusing on the daily noise. What i mean in daily noise is the things that don’t matter.. like the 9 to 5 job u work to make the next person rich. The traditional ways we been taught of doing things because of what was laid out before us.. Like going to school and getting a degree and wearing a suit and talking properly in order to stand out and become successful amongst the rest of the world.  We find ourselves everyday focusing on the things that don’t matter or make much difference in our lives. Radio, News, TV, iPod’s, Xbox  ? -

These are all forms of triggering the human emotions in order to keep the wealth & privileged on top//. thanks to the INTERNET.  Seeing it first hand, by it being done to thousand of consumers per day by promotion of free trial products that fed into the emotional trigger that caused them to buy. Human beings can be easily manipulated and the ones before us have placed that noise to suppress us from reaching out and using our creative minds to do what we want in this world.

thomas friedman said it best. “Why do we as Americans worship Brittany spears & foreigners worship bill gates?”

Why do we have 22 year old kids waiting for that new ipod to come out, so they can spend all day listening to their jams and then u have 22 year old kids in Russia working on being a Rocket Scientist?

Maybe they don’t have much of that noise overseas?  Are they about flying jets, Ferrari’s, living in Mansion with a pool of blonde haired women like we are fed in the media? Nope.  * Don’t get me wrong that life is cool and what not but only for so long. Trust*

John Chow made a great post on his blog about the internet lifestyle. He made a good point how the park he went to was empty and how just a couple decades ago that park was filled with Moms.. Due to changes in the world and demand women now have to work with the husbands to put food on the table. Watch the video it’s good.

This isn’t just the internet lifestyle this was the lifestyle before all the noise was handed down to us. Before we ever started focusing on the things that didn’t matter.  Actually it’s the small things that matter.. the simplest of thing’s.

I  feel that more of our brain capabilities will be used once we have to start thinking less.  Because of how the internet has indexed life..  Got a question ask google. Seriously try it now.

I mean im thinking way out there but then again i really don’t believe in anything being way out there anymore.. Let’s look at cell phones & Virtual Reality Screen TV’s and come on.. Artifical DNA controls life

forget what u heard! Believe in what u want just believe in it till the end.

if we can create Artificial DNA then shhhhhhhyyyytttttttt  I’m convinced we can do whatever we believe in.

Best,

Jay Styles

Bad ass post Jay Styles. It’s amazing to analyze how the world has so drastically changed. The idea of a park and how 15 years ago it would be filled with woman and their children is extremely interesting. I believe its attributed to woman becoming more dominant and independent.

Anyways, I think if all people were honest with themselves they would agree that Time, Money & Freedom balanced and utilized together is one heck of a potion. It’s just keeping our intentions extremely clear in the dot.com community and remembering why we started these ventures in the first place!

Thanks for the enlightenment dude.

Cheers

Jesse

>Could artificial intelligence learn from our everyday connection to the world wide web?

It already does, try using your Amex or other credit card in a uncharacteristic purchase (e.g. at two gas stations in the same town in 1 hr).

Alice chat bots are pitted against live users to create something close to the Turing test (e.g. if you were texting to somebodyhow would you know if they were human or not, what questions would you ask).

I used to work on AI (teaching computers to think), with blogs, credit cards, phone logs, there is a increasing digital ‘Shadow” to our identities. E.g. I have a journal online that has at least 5 years of data in it, as a human I could reread someone elses journal (e.g. shakespeare) and start to imitate it. Some people fear this, but for me I’d actually pay someone to create an army of digital copy of me to deal with the shyt I don’t want to in the way I would normally. Some people call this Smart Agents, others call it personality capture.

I also used to do Virtual Reality research. 5-15 years ago, you had to have the MIT Media lab to do anything 3d or anything multitouch. Now you can go into any decent theater and see amazing 3d, and as of this last year TV’s for Will we become smarter and evolve because of the internet?

Facebook is rewiring people’s brains. Current generation of kids will not know of a world without ubiquitous internet access or knowing where their freinds are 24/7

but at the same time we’ve lost a ton. E.g. america has lost a shitload of manufactering capability, and the skills associated with them (e.g. die manufacter for auto bodies). I honestly fear if a earthquake hit LA that millions have no clue on how to survive without starbucks and eating out.

>You know how they say we only use a percentage of our brain?

That’s a popular myth. It’s true for any given second, but really could you experience every memory and idea you’ve ever had at once? If I hook you up to a MRI and give you tasks we can watch all the parts of your brain light up like a christmas tree.

> like the 9 to 5 job u work to make the next person rich.

not even rich, there are many poor to struggling business owners too. It’s a culture.

> We find ourselves everyday focusing on the things that don’t matter or make much difference in our lives. Radio, News, TV, iPod’s, Xbox ? -

To make matters we are actively addicted to these sources.

LOL as Gary Vaynerchuck said “Stop watching fucking lost”

>using our creative minds to do what we want in this world.

some people don’t want all that much that’s really creative, and some people really aren’t creative in the right ways.

>I feel that more of our brain capabilities will be used once we have to start thinking less.

I know people who have gotten so dependent on GPS they really can’t navigate anyplace in their town from memory..even the grocery store!!!. These spatial skills have use in many other places as well. But you are right they do fill their life with other stuff, I can’t tell if this is positive or negative, but yet another dependency on technology.
