Gearing for the 20/20 Vision of Our Cybernetic Future - The Syntellect Hypothesis, Expanded Edition | Press Release
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ecstadelic Media Group releases the new 2020 expanded edition of The Syntellect Hypothesis: Five Paradigms of the Mind's Evolution by Alex M. Vikoulov as eBook and Paperback (Press Release, San Francisco, CA, USA, January 15, 2020 10.20 AM PST)
Named “The Book of the Year” by futurists and academics alike in 2019 and maintaining high rankings in Amazon charts in Cybernetics, Physics of Time, Phenomenology, and Phenomenological Philosophy, it has now been released as The 2020 Expanded New Deluxe Edition (2020e) in eBook and paperback versions. In one volume, the author covers it all: from quantum physics to your experiential reality, from the Big Bang to the Omega Point, from the 'flow state' to psychedelics, from 'Lucy' to the looming Cybernetic Singularity, from natural algorithms to the operating system of your mind, from geo-engineering to nanotechnology, from anti-aging to immortality technologies, from oligopoly capitalism to Star-Trekonomics, from the Matrix to Universal Mind, from Homo sapiens to Holo syntellectus.
As the author writes in the book: "Your life is a dream. It’s a dream of reality. When I woke up one morning, I got poetically epiphanized: To us, our dreams at night feel 'oh-so-real' when inside them but they are what they are – dreams against the backdrop of daily reality. Our daily reality is like nightly dreams against the backdrop of the larger reality. This is something we all know deep down to be true. This purposeful computational process is centered around one objective, one guiding principle only, one 'raison d’être' – to produce a meaningful experience in the context of 'embodied' mind."
To lucidify this dream of reality and to extrapolate the viable directions for self-transcendence is the ulterior motive of this cutting-edge philosophical treatise backed by a solid scientific groundwork. In regards to the forthcoming Cybernetic Singularity, Vikoulov writes: “A neuron in the human brain can never equate the human mind, but this analogy doesn't hold true for a digital mind, by virtue of its mathematical structure, it may – through evolutionary progression and provided there are no insurmountable evolvability constraints – transcend to the higher-order Syntellect. A mind is a web of patterns fully integrated as a coherent intelligent system; it is a self-generating, self-reflective, self-governing network of sentient components... that evolves, as a rule, by propagating through dimensionality and ascension to ever-higher hierarchical levels of emergent complexity. In this book, the Syntellect emergence is hypothesized to be the next meta-system transition, developmental stage for the human mind – becoming one global mind – that would constitute the quintessence of the looming Cybernetic Singularity."
Alex M. Vikoulov is a Russian-American futurist, evolutionary cyberneticist, digital philosopher, neo-transcendentalist, transhumanist singularitarian, cosmist, independent scholar, consciousness researcher, media commentator, painter and writer who lives in Burlingame, CA (San Francisco Bay Area). Founder, CEO, Editor-in-Chief of Ecstadelic Media Group.
This book is an essential "transformative" read in digital physics, foundations of quantum physics, science of consciousness, philosophy of mind, physics of time, phenomenology, economic theory, cybernetics and AI research, collective evolution and self-development in the Information Age. Written by Alex M. Vikoulov; Foreword by Antonin Tuynman, PhD; Publisher: Ecstadelic Media Group; Publication Date: January 1, 2020; Formats: Kindle eBook, Paperback; Paperback Dimensions: 6×9×1.3 inches; Book Length: 518 pages; ISBN: 9781733426152 (eBook), 9781733426145 (paperback); Price: $29.99 eBook; $34.99 paperback.
"The Syntellect Hypothesis by Alex M.Vikoulov is not only a worthy and contemporary successor of Teilhard de Chardin's ‘The Phenomenon of Man,’ it is also much more than that... an irresistible non-dualistic apex, synthesis and culmination of so many books you read before, but which all left open some questions… Vikoulov will rock the foundations of your understanding of physics and metaphysics and show you that they are connected in a single substrate of pure consciousness, that finds its most elegant and parsimonious way to come to expression in Digital Presentism. If you thought you knew where the technological singularity would lead us, if you thought you understood the principles of quantum physics, time and gravity... this is an indispensable scripture to read in the 21st century as we're verging into the Singularity." -Antonin Tuynman, PhD, futurist, digital philosopher
"A powerful work! As a transhumanist, I especially loved one of the main ideas of the book that the Syntellect Emergence, merging of us into one Global Mind, constitutes the quintessence of the coming Technological Singularity. The novel conceptual visions of mind-uploading and achieving digital immortality are equally fascinating. The Chrysalis Conjecture as a solution to the Fermi Paradox is mind-bending. I would highly recommend The Syntellect Hypothesis to anyone with transhumanist aspirations and exponential thinking!" -Zoltan Istvan, futurist, author, founder of the U.S. Transhumanist Party
"Really enjoyed The Syntellect Hypothesis. Excellent overview of possibilities of mind and physics. Timely discussion of the Transcension Hypothesis. Highly recommend! -John M. Smart, futurist, Foresight University CEO
