We're going deep, now ....
Sometimes I think there's some deep irony that we're totally unaware of with the whole technology/networking thing. I can't put my finger on it exactly, but it has to do with the fact that we're creating machines and systems to help us process information and make connections, yet our brains are the best information processor/networking devices in the world, and so we're creating these machines that are really stupid and we're putting all our energy into using them to connect with each other, but all they really do is emulate our brains (poorly), but suddenly we can't think without them. And I wonder, if we'd never created them in the first place, would we be farther along than we are now? If so--now that's ironic.
I also wonder, is the human brain like a computer, or are computers like the human brain? If the human brain is like a computer, will it become more computer-like as computers continue to evolve? Who's driving whom here, people?
