On the other end, our friend is talking with an avatar of ourselves in this tiny box. In the future, cell phones may be implanted in people’s skulls. mind control over simple electronics has been established pretty recently in science. With a little more development, the relation between humans and technology will began to blur more. we already have electronic implants to monitor heartbeat, and to help with health problems. there is a new field of study concerning human-machine interactions. It is called cyborg anthropology. |+|

|−|If humans had cell phones implanted into their skulls, they could have instant access to other’s sounds. with more development, thoughts could be transferred. Would this mean a collective consciousness? The speed of transfer of information could increase as time progressed, so the transference of thoughts would reach a speed in which everyone could be completely and fully linked. There would be no lies, and everyone would completely understand the other. would this create world peace? |+|

|−|Would a collective consciousness such as this be good for society? would it help the world in any way? What would the world look like under collective consciousness? Would there be outsiders this consciousness that refuse to have this technology implanted into their heads, or would it be required by every individual at birth, or they wouldn’t get a birth certificate, social security number, ect. Would this be a means of control, in which anyone going into any store would be tracked by what his chip emanated to a receiver? Could the coverage of these receivers allow everyone on earth’s position at any time known at all times? |+|

What would happen? Would people try to make the world better? Would problems be understood or their entirety, or would the merging of duplicate information make everyone simple sit back and absorb ideas instead of act? Would it stop everyone from doing anything? Would it cause riots? Likely this technology would not be used by the entirety of the world but by subsections that could profit the most from it. Channels that were depressing or intense might be turned off. Alternately, those with subscriptions to minds of those higher then them might absorb endlessly, or use that information for their own purposes, if they had the interest. |+|

Revision as of 14:14, 4 June 2011
Collective Consciousness is a phrase used to describe a set of separate entities linked by an access to similar thoughts and ideas. In a way, it could be considered a neural network of nodes that are capable of passing information quickly from one node to many of the others in the network with a latency of only a few seconds or minutes. Communities on the website 4Chan are an example of collective consciousness. Global events bring on temporary periods of collective consiousness, such as the earthquakes in Japan or Haiti. Most are temporary.
In closely knit communities connected by network access, information can be discovered, sent, received, and absorbed across a community almost instantaneously. In a collective consciousness, there is always some lag. Those at the edges of a network may take a longer time to receive information. Conversely, those at the edges of a network may also be the first to discover information. Those who discover the information will generally need an amplifier, or more closely connected community member to amplify that message for them. Fans of Apple products learn about and new releases in a manner that most closely resembles a collective consciousness.
