Since the beginning of human evolution the storage capacity of the human mind has always been limited. We eventually had to reason a single human brain needed to network with other humans, then eventually with machines. We have evolved to a hybrid society of humans and machine. If we have a question we ask each other and sometimes search archives of computers networked in the web or internet. As we advance even more human interaction and even more machine interaction.
I thought about the pendulum of interaction switching more in the direction of machines. They seem to become more tolerant of our questions easier to access than other humans.
Capacity of the brain is limited some are blessed with a greater capacity than others however in all cases it is limited. When we reach the limit of capacity we rely on communication or networking. Before machines or computers we searched a different realm the consciousness. This realm is still being explored for it is limitless.
There will always be consciousness regardless of how we utilize our brains or extend the network to machinery or computers. We ourselves are just an extension of consciousness - we can communicate verbally or through airwaves or through consciousness.
One of the principles that I hold similar to some Zen thinkers is that there are no mysteries. Nothing is hidden , and as the apostle Paul had said we see through a glass darkly- he also goes on to say then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
Even as also I am known--- What Paul is saying is that he is a part of something greater. He by himself sees darkly when he faces the fact that he is only a part of this greater life force of intelligence things become clear. This is how knowledge is acquired by sharing and the amazing truth is there is what Jesus stated, I am the light of the world. He who follows me will not walk in darkness but have the light of life. He clearly understood the life force and wanted to share this with us.
The buddha also explained this life force to his followers the buddha nature is explained to be the fundamental life force in the cosmos. Christ nature is the light of the world , the light of life.
The Hybrid Human is networked through machinery and technology. Even with all this technology the hybrid finds themselves depressed and empty. They have lost touch with consciousness with the life force. Einstein also realized this would happen as did Max Planck father of quantum physics.
"All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force... We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter." - Max Planck
We are one -part of something greater than ourselves.
John 14:20 In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.
This realization is that we are all one and the same , whether we call ourselves christian, buddhist or taoist , jewish or any other religious surname. Whether a scientist , a philosopher , a pagan or gnostic we are one part of a life force of much greater magnitude.
This is peace not division - unity. I loved the way Max Planck expressed this about the Mind being the matrix of all matter. I will state this in the past 40 years in computer technology - certified as an information specialist - trained for decades in storage technology , computing and databases. Developed solutions for many of the fortune 500 companies belong to user groups of members from all over the world China, India, Germany, Brazil, Canada etc, out of all my life experience seek first the kingdom of God, the greater life force. For to me this mind often spoken of as the mind of Christ is far greater more satisfying than the Hybrid we are facing today.
I am not saying the Hybrid is evil or technology is evil - it does not replace the consciousness. It should not be the first place we go - seek first the inner light , the kingdom of God. The mind of Christ , if you are a buddhist the nature of the life force. If you are a scientist the consciousness or a philosopher the Mind matrix. We have to come to the realization there is something greater than ourselves that our minds are connected and we are only a part. Within each part is the code of the whole nothing is hidden there is no mystery.
