Rotman Becoming Beside Ourselves
Specifically, I argue the following thesis:
God and Mind (mind, nous, psyche, soul) are media effects of the alphabet, hypostatized entities, ghosts that emerged from the writing of “I” in the sixth century BC within the respective Jewish and Greek deployments of alphabetic writing, born at a point when the medium had become naturalised, the effects of written mediation invisible.
Crucial to the argument is a fundamental mediological point, namely the insistence that any act of self-enunciation is medium specific. This immediately implies that the four reflexive acts - a gestural self-pointing “I”; an “I” spoken in language; and inscribed “I” within alphabetic writing; and the digital “I”, as self-enunciation within contemporary network media - though interconnected and co-present are to be distinguished from each other.
They project different sorts of affect, have different relations to embodiment, operate differently in their milieus, and engender their own forms of subjectivity
In particular, and of cardinal importance for the existence and features of God and Mind, to utter “I” and to write “I”, despite their everyday conflation within Western textual discourse, are radically different signifying acts; and it is precisely the fusing of them, the near universal unawareness of their difference and what might turn on it, that provides the rhetorical matrix for belief in disembodied agencies known only through writing.

David Eagleman -
the world’s hive mind
New Scientist 10 October 2015; vol 228 no 3042
One of the great mysteries of neuroscience: how do electrochemical messages in your brain get turned into your subjective experience of the world? What we know is that the brain is good at extracting patterns from our environment and assigning meaning to them.
Right now, everything about our society is engineered around the senses that we currently have all stop if I were suddenly able to have ultrasonic hearing, I would hear animal calls that no one else could hear. As a nature lover that would be amazing, but I don’t know if it would be lonely to have that extrasensory space if no other human joins me there. I’d also like to explore whether Vest can allow us to better connect with other people. Perhaps if my wife and I both wore a Vest, and used it to somehow experience each other’s emotions, that might bring us to a new level of closeness. Or perhaps it would be detrimental - we just don’t know until we try.
We anticipate that the world’s hive mind will come up with some great ways to use it.
