Greetings fellow travelers, please allow me to introduce myself; I’m Mike ‘Cyber Shaman’ Kawitzky, independent film maker and writer from Cape Town, South Africa, one of your media/art contributors/co-conspirators.

It’s a bit daunting posting to such an illustrious board, so let me try to imagine, with you; how to regard the present with nostalgia while looking look forward to the past, knowing that a millisecond away in the future exists thoughts to think; it’s the mode of neural text, reverse causality, non-locality and quantum entanglement, where the traveller is the journey into a world in transition; after 9/11, after the economic meltdown, after the oil spill, after the tsunami, after Fukushima, after 21st Century melancholia upholstered by anti-psychotic drugs help us forget ‘the good old days’; because it’s business as usual for the 1%; the rest continue downhill with no brakes. Can’t wait to see how it all works out.

Please excuse me, my time machine is waiting…
Post cyberpunk and into Transhumanism

    Hi Mike — you may need to make some absurd accusation about a major scientific organisation or propose an implausible interpretation of particle physics if you want to get a dialogue going. But nonetheless, welcome! D’nile is all the go here :-)

    Hey Steve, I appreciate the welcome.
    Regarding absurd interpretations of particle physics, how does Obama’s recent visit to Mars rate? :)
    Have you heard of Rupert Sheldrake’s morphogenetic field theory?
