FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ecstadelic Media Group releases a new non-fiction book TECHNOCULTURE: The Rise of Man, The Cybernetic Theory of Mind series by Alex M. Vikoulov as a Kindle eBook (Press Release, San Francisco, CA, USA, September 9, 2020 09.00 AM PST)
What has been shaping the human mind throughout the history of mankind? What is the difference between mind and consciousness? What links quantum physics to consciousness? What gives rise to our subjective experience? What drives our accelerating evolution?
If you’re eager to familiarize with probably the most advanced ontological framework to date or if you’re already familiar with the Syntellect Hypothesis which, with this series, is now presented to you as the full-fledged Cybernetic Theory of Mind, you should get this book two of the series which corresponds to Part II of The Syntellect Hypothesis: Five Paradigms of the Mind's Evolution. This volume two contains some newly-introduced and updated material if compared with the originally published version and can be read as a stand-alone book. At the same time, it is highly recommended to obtain The Syntellect Hypothesis as the original coherent version of the same theoretical framework instead of waiting for all five books to come out and if you don’t need extra detailing.
Over the course of human history, from the first bonfire to today’s smartphones and hyperloops, we have designed tools, and tools designed us back by shaping our minds. Technology isn’t just something outside ourselves, it’s an innate part of human nature, like sex, sleeping or eating, and it has been a major driving force in evolution. Tool using, along with language, bipedalism, and cooking (quite literally) is essentially what has made us human.
Pre-historic events, such as dinosaur extinction and incessant evolutionary competition between species, were conducive to Homo sapiens becoming the dominant hominid species, and later on the dominant species on Earth. In this book two of the series, we’ll also discuss at length interpretations of quantum mechanics and the concept of Quantum Immortality. Is death just an illusion? What happens to your consciousness at the moment of death?
Language-based information exchange contributed to the technocultural development of our species which took off via the meme propagation and technological innovation, some call it epigenetic evolution which continues to accelerate to this day. We are now shifting away from evolution by natural selection, i.e., Darwinism, to self-directed evolution.
The Cybernetic Theory of Mind series is a "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; Publisher: Ecstadelic Media Group; Publication Date: September 9, 2020; Format: Kindle eBook; Print Length: 200 pages; Price: $9.99.
TECHNOCULTURE: The Rise of Man (The Cybernetic Theory of Mind series) by Alex M. Vikoulov, Trailer
Here's one of the revelatory passages from the book: "Admittedly, our minds are now running on the outmoded biological 'hardware and software.' What we’ll soon see is the ultimate self-directed evolution fueled forward by gene editing, genetic engineering, reproduction assisted technology, neuro-engineering, mind uploading and creation of artificial life... Our success as a technological species essentially created what might be called our species-specific 'success formula.' We devised tools and instruments, created new methodologies and processes, and readjusted ecological niches to suit our needs. And our technology shaped us back by shaping our minds. In a very real sense, we have co-evolved with our technology. As an animal species among many other species competing for survival, this was our unique passage to success."
