In terms of social networking, there would have to be a comfort in actually engaging with new people. It would facilitate more ‘natural’ interaction. As it currently stands, in the social networking scene, there are three primary possibilities of interaction. One is insignificant crap that has miniscule meaning even on the site, and leads to nothing. Another is interaction with people you already know. Another is awkward attempts at communicating with people you do not know, which has some arbitrary and random possibility of success, usually low. It seems to me that for social networking, in the sense of actually meeting and forming relationships with new people, there MUST BE more depth added to it, and some structure based on interests and the like. Practically the only meaningful relationships I have ever made on the internet have been through forums. It is in this forum setup that people are capable of truly getting to know each other. Social networking is always surface level interaction. A huge part of your feelings about an unknown person on a social networking site are bound to be determined by their pictures, and you’re going to have to say something either awkward, cheesy, or boring to initiate communication. This is not conducive to forming meaningful relationships.

Now I speak here of meaningful relationships, but I am not implying that in-depth intimate relationships are the only ones of value. For instance, let us consider sexual encounters. In this world of sexual repression, the internet is astounding in its possibilities for facilitating sexual encounters. As it is, it is practically laughable how terribly things are set up in this department. In terms of sexuality, the diversity of possibilities is very sparse. You basically have porn, nearly asexual social networking sites, dating sites, and some more sexually-oriented social networking sites. Porn is nice primarily in that it increases your sexual imagination, and thus sexual energies. It does little in the way of real world fulfillment, however. It’s all people you’ll never meet. One may think that social networking would be great for meeting new people for potential romantic/sexual encounters, and there are millions who wish this was the case, but in reality this does not work out very well.

Established social networking sites, such as facebook, work almost entirely through interaction with people you already know. It may be useful for improving an established relationship, but it is highly ineffective at facilitating new relationships. The greatest sexual fulfillment on these sorts of sites, beyond potentially improving an established relationship, is someone you find attractive uploading a semi-revealing picture. No nudity is allowed, and there seems to be a fairly widely accepted taboo against intentionally being sexy in pictures. Generally when people put up these semi-revealing pictures, they do it under a guise of innocence, almost as if they are unaware that the picture is revealing. This is the result of the basic fact that social networking sites are nearly asexual. They are not conducive to direct sexuality. There are dating websites, and some of these are fine for attempting to establish long-lasting monogamous relationships, I’m sure, but I’m equally sure that these are far too ‘serious’ for what many people are looking for. Then you have the ‘adult-oriented’ social networking sites, which are failures to the point that they are hardly worth mentioning. These tend to be explicit in their sexual nature, and you seemingly ALWAYS have to pay to be a part. This amounts to people paying in order to have sexual encounters, and this is not the sort of thing that many people are comfortable with.

So we have here went to two ends of the spectrum. On one hand we have in-depth connections, where you truly get to know and appreciate others. On the other hand we have casual sexuality. Neither of these are being facilitated particularly well on the internet-as-it-is, and I would like to bring this whole spectrum of interaction into one medium. Although they would be a part of one medium, they would not be directly intertwined. There would be the possibility of crossing over between these aspects, but they would be distinct. There would be different ‘sections’ of the site for different sorts of relationships. Looking ahead, from my current point of view, I can break this down into three primary sections. One is where an individual wants to share something SHe has done, and maybe get feedback. With this, it is basically about you. You’re not so much trying to start a dialogue, but rather share. We can tenatively call this ‘blogging.’ Another section would be designed for actual conversation. There would be a whole range of possible depths to these conversations. There could be anything from in-depth philosophic or political discussions/debates to any sort of casual topic of conversation. We can call this the ‘forum’ interface. Next we have the more casual yet personal environment of ‘social networking.’ Here people share any sort of basic things that they may casually share with friends. In the current social networking scene, we would think of this as things like like status’, pictures, etc. As I say, this is both the most personal and casual environment. It would be primarily for use of people you wanted to get to know on a ‘real’ or personal level, but for in-depth interaction you would not want to limit yourself to this environment.

Now, we would attempt to create a system within all of these ‘sections’ where there would be broad categories along with increasingly specific classifications. You would select the broad categories which were of interest, and then proceed to either select more specific classifications or learn over time what specific categories were of primary interest to you. You would be asked to rate things after being shown them, including options like ‘not sure’ or ‘doesn’t fit my interests.’ There could be some sort of tracking system on the site that shows you your most used categories, as well as rating trends within these various categories. This could give you insight into what your favorite categories are, as well as categories that may not be of the level of interest that you had thought. There would be a database of the ratings that all of the various users gave out, as well as each user’s favorite categories. The system would be set up, either through some sort of coding or through human analysis, to track common relationships between various categories. This would be for the purpose of developing a ‘You may also be interested in…’ sort of thing. Potential unknown interests would be recommended to you not only by other categories that other people who share common categories of interest with you are interested in, but it would be further filtered through a process which would favor individuals who have rated things within those categories similarly to you.

Now as I speak of these ‘categories,’ the most natural interpretation may lead you to think of reading/viewing things in the blogging interface, or topics of conversations in the forum interface, due to the impersonal sound of the word. However, I would seek to employ this same basic system with social interacting. It gets quite interesting and unique here, because in some ways it causes us to question the very nature of our humanity and our interactions. Each individual would determine ‘categories’ of interest for people to interact with. This means basic personality types, various physical traits, whatever. You would determine the ‘types’ of people you were interested in meeting, or your basic feelings about these different ‘types.’ Interactions would be faciliated through the ways in which everyone was categorized by others, as well as the ways they were ‘rated’ in terms of these categories. These would be kept anonymous. This is so that people feel comfortable being honest in their assessment of others, and also so that people are comfortable and confident in being themselves, without needing to conform to others standards. This self-confidence and ease of interaction would continuously be improved, because the social setting would be continuously improved as well, by means of facilitating interaction with ideal people.

I have integrated the 8-Circuit Model Of Consciousness, originally developed by Timothy Leary, into my thinking a great deal. I have, therefore, began referencing it in various writings of mine. A couple individuals have asked that I explain this model. This seemed to be a good idea. In this post I will give a basic overview of the system, and then break down the four “larval” or “hive” circuits, which are the circuits that are typical among Modern-day humans. I don’t give a detailed analysis of the Post-Hive/Post-Terrestrial Circuits in this post. This is mostly because the thread was already quite long. Plus, each Post-Larval Circuit itself is a lot to take in, as each circuit from here on out represents an evolution as significant as the evolution from cellular life to amphibians, or monkeys to humans. I will explain these Circuits later, though.

Humans are adjusted to larval existence, based on survival needs of the lower four circuits. These circuits bring about rigid newtonian structures and models of thought. These four circuits are designed for the survival of the species in terrestrial-space, on the womb-planet. These four circuits are generally standard in the Modern-Human. There are four Post-Larval, Post-Hive, or Post-Terrestrial Circuits that represent future development in the species. Each of the eight circuits has three essential stages. These stages are passive-receptivity, active integration/understanding, and communication/linkage. This can be compared with the three anatomical and functional divisions of the neuron, which is the basic unit of biological contelligence. The dentrite system receives signals; the cell-body stores, integrates, and interprets incoming signals; the axon transmits the message. This demonstrates perfectly how the exo-psychological system is mirrored perfectly in the neural system. Each neuron, each circuit, and the nervous system in its totality is divided into these three functions.

There are certain key points in the development of the individual that are crucial. These points are when a new circuit of consciousness is being activated, and it puts the Nervous System into a state of hyper-sensitivity. Examples of these times include when you are a newborn, as well as when you begin to develop sexuality. In this period of hyper-sensitivity, you become ultra sensitive to your surroundings. Whatever coincidental, accidental environment you find yourself in at this time imprints your nervous system, and that determines who you are, and what reality you inhabit, for the rest of your life. This barring the event of some other event occurring later in your life that also puts your Nervous System into this state of hyper-sensitivity, that also allows for re-imprinting. I speak here of things such as a near-death experience, or something shocking, of that nature. Now this is a neuro-chemical response in the body, that puts one into this hyper-sensitive state in which one is open to imprinting. One can chemically induce this state through the use of psychedelics, and weed to a lesser degree. If you learn how to intelligently use these substances, you can consciously imprint your Nervous System in any way you would like, and make your Self into anything you would like. These substances also activate the higher, Post-Terrestrial Circuits of Consciousness.

1st Circuit – This is the bio-survival circuit. In the evolution of the species, this circuit first appears along in cellular life, and then develops into fish life, and then culminates in amphibian life. In the individual, this circuit is activated in the new-born. Its culmination is found when the child begins crawling. This circuit is all about physical safety and survival. One’s basic sense of trust-distrust with the world and its inhabitants is imprinted into this circuit. The mother is the standard object of first circuit imprinting.

2nd Circuit – This is the motion-emotion circuit. In the evolution of the species, this circuit appears in various land-animals, and culminates with the appearance of the primate.   In the individual this circuit develops as the child learns how to walk and run, as well as when he learns emotional games, and understands the concepts of winning vs. losing, getting what you want vs. being submissive to another. One’s basic emotional disposition and level of confidence, or feelings of submission/dominance, are imprinted into this circuit.

3rd circuit – This is the circuit of symbol/artifact manipulation, and conceptual thinking. In the species, this circuit is first activated in the paleolithic era, with early humans beginning to use the most basic tools. It reaches its culmination when humans group together to create a division of labor. In the individual, this circuit is activated approximately from the ages of 3-5, when the child begins speaking, and beginning to think, and be curious, conceptually. This circuit basically represents the intellect, or the thinking mind. One’s basic level and type of intelligence are imprinted into this circuit. I find it fascinating that one’s basic level and type of intelligence are wide-open in the potential of the human brain, and yet is basically entirely determined by the age of 5.

4th circuit – This is the socio-sexual circuit. One’s sexual role and place in the context of society is imprinted into this circuit. In the species, this circuit first appears in the governing of the kings, or the aristocracy. It develops into democracy, and reaches its culmination in insectoid-socialism. In the individual, this circuit begins its activation with puberty, and progresses into family-domestication. Notice that THIS IS WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW, as a society. We are at the very end of larval-existence.

Note also that all previous evolution was based on collectives. Not so with post-larval circuits. These are individual in nature. I prefer to call post-larval circuits post-hive circuits, and this term emphasizes the individual nature of these circuits. This is why it is our job, as individuals, to begin working on understanding, activating, and integrating these higher circuits of consciousness. Detach from larval collectives, and do everything you can to evolve your Self. The species will thank you, as what you do will fabricate future developments in the species.

Hey everybody! I just officially posted my mini-book online, and it is a bit updated from when I had it posted before. It has a bunch of awesome pics n stuff like that to go with the writing. Sooo if you would check it out and give feedback, it would be much appreciated! 😀

“The Medium is the Message.” I feel that this statement is very profound. The specific outflows of any given Medium will evolve according to its own principles, and will inevitably bring about new realities to go along with it. This explains our recent development, as it correlates most precisely with improvements in communicative technology. Developments in technology, most particularly the internet, certainly bring about an entirely new medium, unlike any that has ever existed before. This necessarily will bring about new realities, unlike any that have existed before. These new potential reality-models have not yet begun to be fully utilized by a long shot.  We are, therefore, charting new territory. It is our duty, then, to make these new realities as perfect and joyful as possible, because these creations will manifest as new reality-developments within the species.
