Can the brain of a man be programmed by man-conceived language and programmers?

When you try to express thought, intent, backed behind some other abstract motivation as a way to cope with the boredom of “reality”, a.k.a. we’re just a bunch of fucking fancy monkeys on a spec of dust. playing a social mind/video game we that must of us somehow respect called “society”, it’s only because our advanced brains have managed to build common abstractions upon abstractions product of which we have things like the technologies that make our lives so much easier.

We’re so advanced now that we have created different conventions of thought to express ideas, some simple, some so genius that can only by understood by few but admired, adored and never really understood by the majority, e.g. nanoscale chip design, nobel prize winner discoveries, Mozart’s work, The Google Search Engine. These individuals managed to be WAY WAY more prominent than the rest, they’re so prominent in fact, that the product of their focus and work has managed to linger in the brains of many of us, ideas, constructs and abstractions so powerful that never die and that actually make it into the real world to change reality.

However, these minds of ours keep expressing their thoughts using the same conventions: Language, Math, Technology, Art, (I’ll even put Religion on this list), and languages, languages, languages, in my case the most amazing abstractions I’ve ever come up with are expressed using computer programming languages.

There’s a certain difficulty in expressing thought and logic through mathematical based logical expressions, tokens, and commands, upon which we start building all sort of high level abstractions, some that could never be matched to what most people realize reality is about.

A programming language is certainly a much lower language than the one that runs on the ultimate computer of all, the human brain.

The human brain runs such an amazing architecture that it can understand thought to such extent that we can collaborate or admire the thoughts of others, e.g. Musicians, Music Lovers, Artists, Art Lovers, Scientists, Science lovers (most geeks are in this group), Film.., you get it…

Once you realize this, you can begin to try and express what you feel or recognize from world with your own abstractions, most of them are probably impossible to expres unless someone is on your brain. I think these are the hidden lower levels, less secure levels of the programming language of the matrix. 😉

Eventually we realize that we can’t be programmed (ultimate human ego trip follows…) that we are like the center of the matrix, the one that runs that simulation, we’re just a special combination of matter in the center of the very universe, capable to start to describe itself, the more it can describe, based on what it learns, it’ll ultimate find out through the spread of thoughts like mine that WE are the creators of the universe, we’re just busy enjoying the moment a little too much now.

So life… if you are elsewhere out there, you’re just another awesome combination, confabulation of a massive amount of atoms to form conscience.

Then, if lower languages born out of such a capable computer, a computer that runs on any language and that learns instantly sometimes to repeat the motion of lots of atoms the same way (thought, cause, reaction), you must realize that it is your mind that programs the universe. Then you can control it.

Are you still up here with me? 😉

PS: And of course, you must start by trying your universe manipulating programming language (run in that brain of yours, what a cool “cpu architecture” eh?) by manipulating others to do as you please, just make sure to use them wisely. #hipnosys #massiveHipnosys

Crónicas del Buen Programador: Invierte en Conocimientos

“Una inversión en conocimiento siempre paga el mejor Interes” Benjamin Franklin

Tus conocimientos y tu experiencia son tus mejores bienes. En 1999 recuerdo que compre un libro llamado “Java In A Nutshell“. Era un libro de referencia completa al lenguaje, en aquel entonces la API era Java 1.1.8. Lei el libro de la primera pagina a la ultima pagina. En unos cuantos meses empece a ganar reputación en la escuela de Ingeniería Informática porque sabia programar (muy poco en comparación a hoy en día) en Java.

Las Mentiras sobre la Marihuana

Si te criaste en Latino América probablemente eres victima de las mentiras que rodean a la marihuana y probablemente tienes el cerebro híper lavado en su contra, lo cual te hace ver esta planta como algo que jamás tocaras en tu vida.

Si no has probado la marihuana (después de los 21) por miedo a todo lo que has escuchado y creído, deberías estar tan súper molesto o molesta como yo porque hemos sido victimas de viles mentiras para privarnos de uno de los placeres mas sanos de la vida.

Will ‘Smell’ ever be a part of entertainment?

I often get sad when I remember that there’s hardly a way to realize the duration of the present, but it’s comforting to know that we have books, photography, audio recording and video recording as very tangible ways to bring the present back.

There’s however one thing lacking in these technologies to relive the past or to tell stories, and I think it could be one of the most powerful ways of telling a story, smell. We all have at some moment smelled something in particular and have that smell help us vividly remember a moment 10 years ago like if it was today.

I keep thinking on how to do it, and I want to share an idea I had last night after thinking about it for a few minutes.

At first I thought, is there a way to quantify or mix chemicals to produce smells out of basic components, the same way we can do it with color (RGB or other schemes)? hmm, maybe, maybe not, I think there’s too many chemicals involved, so scratch that. However, I believe that a smell, once it hits your brain, it’s nothing more but a series of electrical impulses sent to a specific area of the brain which is in charge of making you smell something.

We need a sensor, our noses, and then that information, somehow must be transformed to electrical impulses, and I think this is the foundation to create a device to record smells.

First we’d need to have some sort of electronic nose, whoever could build this will have to take a serious look on how our nose detects smell in the air. I suppose we’ll have iteration after iteration of this device until it can record up scents not even humans can detect (this reminds me of mp3 and how it just ignores a lot we can’t hear).

Then, once you can record this information, the problem is… how do you get it in the brains of an audience, I don’t think we’d attach anything to our noses and have something mix substances to reproduce a smell, that’d be ridiculous, instead, we need to send an electrical signal to our brain so that the smell can be interpreted and smelt, without using our nose. So I suppose in theory, there will be at some point in history a device that can broadcast brainwaves to a lot of people on a movie theater audience, or on your home tv.

The applications would be awesome… Imagine playing Gears of War 8 with smell, the battlefield experience would be so much more engaging if you could smell the smoke, the lead, the blood, …

After that we’ll probably also figure out a way to record and broadcast weather conditions, and make us feel heat, or cold, or wind, all while sitting in front of our console, or on a movie theater.

If for some crazy reason you start developing this technology, or you know of someone doing it, please let me know, it’d just be awesome to know that this is happening during my lifetime.
