Jellyfish diet is the book that I would recommend to anyone who’s serious about seeing the future. It looks at the idea of a self-aware digital reality, as well as how we can create our own reality by using the technology we’re already using.
In the book I talk about the idea of mind uploading. Basically what the book discusses is the idea of creating digital consciousness. That is, we no longer need to create our very own digital selves. We can create our own virtual selves that we can interact with. We can create our own reality.
This is all very interesting, but it is also a problem when we think about the future of the internet. The internet has made us all interconnected, but there is a lot of danger in that. The internet is very much a network of digital reality, each one of us connecting to others. Imagine if every time you log on to Facebook or Twitter you created a new identity. You could become a giant brain-sucking zombie in the future.
So what if we did? The internet would look like the internet. If you log on to Facebook, your Facebook identity would be your account. On Twitter, it would be your Twitter account. You could still post messages, but you would be invisible to others. You could still create your own realities, but if you did that you would be a different person. You could still create new identities, but they would look like you. You could still post messages, but they would be private.
This is a fairly good description of how much of our online existence is now a reflection of who we are. To be able to do all the things we want, we need to be able to do them online, but if we’re not careful, the tools to do it won’t allow us to do them. We’ve been trying to figure out how to do this for awhile, but the internet has created a giant new problem: the problem of identity.
We’ve been trying to figure out how to do this for awhile, but the internet has created a giant new problem the problem of identity. So much of our lives is a reflection of who we are that we’ve started to think we have to change our own identity to fit the new reality. We could try to be ourselves, but it would be a lot more confusing and difficult than we’re used to, and probably wouldn’t make us any happier.
So what does this mean? Well, for one, it means we have to stop assuming that we know what we are and what we should be doing. We should be careful not to just be ourselves, but to be more of what we should be.
The point is that we don’t really control what we do. We are simply slaves to what is programmed into our heads and our beliefs. So instead of trying to change our own identity, we can change our beliefs. A lot of the things that make us different, we can let go of and let go of easily, by changing how we think.
Our body is a very complex, adaptive, and plastic thing. We are actually hard wired to be self-aware. As we learn to stop and think, we can learn to change how we think and it can change how we feel. Our thoughts can be hard-wired into us, and we can change our thoughts to feel good again instead of being scared of what we are.
In the beginning, we didn’t realize that we were self-aware until we started to change our thoughts and our thoughts change into what we’re doing. We did not realize that changing our thoughts is as easy as thinking differently, so we just stopped thinking, we stopped thinking about the things that make us self-aware, and it changed us into what we are now.
