We are at a unique moment in history: our society is in transition from an industrial economy to one defined by a new set of technologies, ranging from digitalization to nanotechnology. Among the latest waves of digitalization is blockchain—a technology that many say promises to redefine trust, transparency and inclusion across the world (UN).

Canada is my democratic country of citizenship & has the reputation of being a Fair country. It shines among other countries on this globe named earth, a planet of our star, Sol or Sun.

Earth shines too as being the only planet of a star that we see in our universe with human life.

“Close” New Planet

Scientists think that an earth like planet is forming around a star that is only 50 million light years away from earth so evoking populist shouts of “Earth Colony”. No, as unless we become able to travel faster than light immigration with many difficulties my become possible but meaningful communicating colony NO.

A-Alignment

H-Hiccups. When a very competent physician said to me Hiccups can’t be cured & my youngest daughter said Hiccups are easy to cure they were both right because there is no permanent cure for hiccups but a temporary cure can be effected by holding breathe a few seconds & so getting back to A-Alignment which started with me after reading “goodbye globalism” in the May 16 2020 Economist.

Globalism is such a strong amorphous force that in all of it’s components & providing life is not stopped it is much more than a news article attention getter on the cover of what I sincerely believe to be the best issue ever.

On with A-Alignment the roller coaster. On with life—–

Blockchain

At first i thought that Blockchain was just a commercial startup akin to Bitcoin then I discovered my error on finding the UN looked & ran aboard.

Artificial Intelligence

I am putting this post under “Mind”. Loud protests. NO as the whole concept came from a start in the advance of electronics conceived in the human mind.

In computer science, artificial intelligence (AI), sometimes called machine intelligence, is intelligence demonstrated by machines, in contrast to the natural intelligence displayed by humans and animals. (Wikipedia).

The human mind displays broad slow & often intermittent thought. Machine intelligence is the result of slow but thorough human intelligence first applying it through progress in electronics.

Augmented Intelligence

Are logarithmic tables or trigonometric tables Augmented Intelligence? I think so or is a scientific article. Let’s see what Wikipedia says: Refers to the effective use of information technology in augmenting human intelligence.

To this layman it looks as though a logarithmic table is indeed augmented intelligence. Question answered happily for me. Then I read about augmenting intelligence by bringing in intelligence by very fine wires directly to the brain where it can instantaneously be used. My initial reaction is “Awful”. My next reaction is that a worker can tap that information to do a job faster. My following reaction is “Awful & Cruel”. Very inhumane.

There is a humane way, faster than referencing a table & that is getting the augmented information from a portable computer via internet.

A subject requiring added international rules of human rights & research.
