Propinquity in hyperconnectivity means gradual intersubjective co-embodiment of flows of interest.
This new state of affairs creates a multiplicity of textures previously unavailable to our minds, and thus a whole realm of sensuality was ipso facto non existent, this new realm of hyperconnected propinquity, demands a new form of discourse to come into play a discourse that will steer the conversation of intimacy towards our desires, fruitful, and urgent.
A thought is ‘like a code’, is an analogy, but a thought ‘is code’ is a metaphor, this transforms into a techno-metaphorical process with the advent of brain machine interfaces by which a thought, literally becomes a code, able to operate objects in the real world, to act in the world and on the world. This is not merely some science fictional idea for the future but a very real and very immediate reality with which we will have to come to terms with and adapt accordingly.
Controlling machine interfaces directly with our minds is a disruptive revolution precisely because it disturbs the old fashion of separation of body from other (hence revolutionizing alterity).
Moreover, the advent of techno-metaphorical thought will permit an understanding of interconnection and hyperconnectivity in manners not previously readily obtainable to the common mind. The difference created in the mind will be gradual but fundamental, no longer will we need to teach the truth of connectivity for it will become a real and immediate experience, resulting so I surmise, in an elevated sense of empathy.
To fully engage in the process of techno-metaphorical thought we will need to allow the metaphor (literally ‘carrying over’ from the Greek root ‘meta’- (beyond, above) and “pherein” (carrying, or bearing)) to work both ways, from our minds into and unto the world and from the world into and unto our minds.
This motion of codes as metaphors will be performed by brain machine interfaces but will result in the literal expansion of the sense of self into new domains of experience, for which our inadequate worldviews are unprepared.
The development of a techno-metaphorical mental alchemy, which I view as part of the cyborgization process, will transform us into a new variety of being, the Technoshamans, a different kind of creature indeed, a new species on this planet.
Knowmads are substantial agents of change, who drastically alter the infocologies they interact with. The level of freedom implied by the knowmadic state is a new existential virtuality that pushes into the real, in the process transforming and meshing the different dimensions in which our minds operate. Existing as non-localized behaviors of information processing, Knowmads are not consumers and cannot be looked upon as capital. Knowmads are the innovators of thought and vision, using an insight mechanism based on correlated data-spheres of complex infocologies.
Knowmads do not care for labels of old style paradigms, such as gender, creed, race or indeed status, what Knowmads care about are the pleasures derived in forming new connections, mash-ups and provisional options, innovative solutions for the next step in human evolution.
Our complex neuro-mesh firing in tandem, has produced this amazing property we call conscious awareness, with the advent of 21st century tech, augmented reality apps, visually stunning info-graphics, virtualities at our finger tips, p2p technologies availability and the like we are becoming Knowmads. The value of the Knowmad state is thus in providing a fresh framework and a new narrative to fill our old storytelling needs in our ever-increasing process of self-description.
The ability to personally and collectively make sense and give meaning to life has become much more important at the end of the industrial era where everything can mean anything and everyone can become anyone
I’m beginning to think that I unintentionally bring out the worst in people. As if there’s just something about me that uplifts people, high, higher than they ever expected to go on their own; and then drops them abruptly.
It’s almost as if my hands are full of holes.
And frankly, I’m terrified that one day I will wake up truly alone and surrounded by the corpses of those who slipped through my fingers.
Un knowmad no es más que un profesional del conocimiento, que son aquellos que destacan por su potencial de talento y sus habilidades para trabajar en entornos en crecimiento. Buscan trabajar en organizaciones abiertas donde puedan continuar evolucionando y aprendiendo de todo su alrededor.
Así lo de knowmad tiene como principal objetivo aportar valor a una organización en un determinado momento. ¿Cómo? Generando nuevos conocimientos e ideas fruto de su constante evolución y aprendizaje y su vinculación directa con nuevas tecnologías.
Bajo mi punto de vista, para llegar a conseguir ser un knowmad, principalmente, ser creativo, innovador, colaborativo y motivado, estar continuamente en las redes sociales y moldearse a sus cambios y, sobre todo, no tener miedo al fracaso.
