Thomas Edison

(Seems to me that is especially true in  the case of  "world peace and planet survival."  What difference can I make ?  We can cause a CyberWorldPeaceTsunami…

(Peace requires the attention of U&Me and the Collective Awakening of the  Individual Mind/Conscience - Now in the Present - the "ties of sentiment that helps to generate bonds of compassion and identification or empathy." (Freud's answer to Einstein's question " How to prevent…

#Cyberpeacefare #Feasibility Study

Wonder if Carnegie and Santa Fe Institute might be interested in doing basic research/exploratory development feasibility study/computer simulation of Cyberpeacefare ?  The study would simulate a mix of social media sites  cooperating agents in an optimal timing routine to likely cause a CyberWorldPeaceTsunami.The cooperating agents would include the world's most famous leaders/celebrities (interfaith religious leaders (e.g the Pope); political leaders (e.g. POTUS); philanthropists…

#Cyberpeacefare #Complexity #Stuart Kauffman

"Next" says Kauffman "suppose that you come back  many years later, after the autocatalytic sets have been coevolving with one another and squirting strings at one another. The things that would still be around would be those things that had to evolve competitive interactions , food webs, mutualism, symbiosis. The things that you would see would be those that made the world they now mutually live in.  And that reminds us that we make the world we live in with one…

Gene Editing Governance & Dr. He Jiankui, with Jeffrey Kahn

Jeffrey Kahn, director of the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute for Bioethics, discusses the many governance issues connected to gene editing. Plus, he gives a first-hand account of an historic conference in Hong Kong last year in which Dr. He Jiankui shared his research on the birth of the world's first germline genetically engineered babies. What's the future of the governance of this emerging technology?

Trump is the Symptom, Not the Problem

Astute observers of U.S. foreign policy have been making the case, as we move into the 2020 elections, not to see the interruptions in the flow of U.S. foreign policy solely as a result of the personality and foibles of the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, writes Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev. Ian Bremmer and Colin Dueck expand on this thought.

Gene Editing: Overview, Ethics, & the Near Future, with Robert Klitzman

In the first in a series of podcasts on gene editing, Columbia's Dr. Robert Klitzman provides an overview of the technology, ethical and governance issues, and where it could all go in the near future. Plus he explains why the birth of genetically engineered twins in China last year was a "seismic" event. How could gene editing lead to more inequality? What could be some of unintended consequences?
