      Ah! Agency.
      <div><br>
      </div>
      <div>Interesting that current descriptions of volition include the
        idea of an instructor that determines when and how we will
        'freely' respond - which is of course contradictory to the idea
        of volition (The Master and his Emissary, Iain McGilchrist, All
        Souls Oxford).</div>
      <div><br>
      </div>
      <div>I think whomsoever comments of what they think mind is - that
        they would need to have investigated its functions on a
        practical level. To have an opinion based upon reading texts and
        rehearsing understanding must give way to practical
        investigations of consciousness.</div>
      <div><br>
      </div>
      <div>It might be supposed that we are all experts in 'mind' as we
        all have one and operate it. But actually, from my experience I
        would say that at any given time one might or might not be
        operating as a free conscious entity. If the 'programmes' are
        running then volition is not part of the functionality of mind.</div>
      <div><br>
      </div>
      <div>I would not accuse anyone of what you feared I might lay at
        your door because at any given moment (because of the reason
        above) I might also be doing just the same.</div>
      <div><br>
      </div>
      <div>I suppose my main point is that new constructs derived from
        prior constructs or modes of thinking will only ever be
        appropriate to their point of origination which lies in the past
        - but now the terms have changed, subtly, but changed
        sufficiently to require approaches untainted by learnt text and
        language behaviour.</div>
      <div><br>
      </div>
      <div>I think I outlined in my ISEA paper that Cognitive
        Neuroscientists (CG's) have a base belief system that could be
        argued to be gnostic in its outcomes. It certainly believes in
        'progress', it believes in a scaffolded system of behaviours
        exchanged between apes, first mimetically, next diegetically
        through sound and eventually, theoretically through a highly
        bureaucratised form of language. That language was an operation
        of power, to bring to its adherents some kind of control into an
        ape-eat-ape world.</div>
      <div><br>
      </div>
      <div>The parallel understanding that CG's distribute amongst their
        number is the notion of a grand human project that began simply
        by panto-miming to exchange information that would be remembered
        within the brain (engramatically) and eventually export all of
        human memory outside of our own minds into surrounding reality.
        Initially this was through a simple exogram like a storytelling,
        a henge, a pyramid, a book, a film and then recently,
        telematically&#8230; But with the advent of computers and data (big or
        small, it doesn't matter) then the human exogramatic project was
        coming to its conclusion - everything has been placed outside of
        ourselves into surrounding reality.</div>
      <div><br>
      </div>
      <div>But:</div>
      <div><br>
      </div>
      <div>Data is not real and neither is reality so we are now a
        little bit confused about where 'value' lie.</div>
      <div><br>
      </div>
      <div>It's a process and we're not sure about the center of our
        being. Is it empty? Does it contain secrets that can reveal the
        meaning of life? How can we find out? Is a hand carved object of
        greater 'value' than an experience gained through a platformed
        app? Is painting dead? Do single images matter any more? Does
        large image display simply render spectacle as a consuming
        experience? What's going on?</div>
      <div><br>
      </div>
      <div>We are velocitised - accustomed to speed. We can move at 160
        kilometres per hour and we're not sure anymore when we're
        travelling at 40.</div>
      <div><br>
      </div>
      <div>This was predicted by McLuhan when he insighted that the
        medium is the human inner core exogramatically revealed.</div>
      <div><br>
      </div>
      <div>Though we are at play here, teasing meaning through online
        communication - the intent is deadly serious: how might we
        reveal truth between our concerned selves so that we are
        equipped to deal with the paradigm change that many of us feel
        is at work deep in our consciousness?</div>

              <div><br>
              </div>
              <div>Some very interesting and nuanced ideas here. Where
                is thought? Where is mind? Where is the voice in our
                heads we often characterise as thinking? What other
                forms might thinking/thought assume, especially in a
                technological society? How can we, in this context,
                avoid a dualist dead-end? Contested territory.</div>
              <div><br>
              </div>
              <div>Philosophers like Andy Clark might propose that mind
                and cognition are not functions of the individual
                sentient being but a networked and extended process that
                engages multiple agents - not just people but technical
                and other systems. Sue Hawksley (another of this month's
                discussants) undertook her PhD supervised by Andy and
                she might wish to comment on this. Bruno Latour's work
                on on inter-agency is highly salient here.</div>
              <div><br>
              </div>
              <div>James Leach, an anthropologist who was a guest on
                empyre about a year ago, might propose that mind is not
                a property of the individual but a negotiated collective
                (social) state from which we individually emerge
                (although in his thinking the notion of the individual
                is likely problematic). In this context the individual
                mind/self/internal-voice emerges from a complexity of
                voices that situate themselves through various
                performative activities.</div>
              <div><br>
              </div>
              <div>Big Data could be considered in these terms - a sort
                of dark matter that permeates what we recognise as
                knowledge - that which we can articulate as a shared
                understanding of things. How does Big Data, as a form of
                collective pre-knowledge, relate to our perception of
                things and sense of self in a technologised society?
                Returning to Latour, how might his insights into
                scientific practices interact with Leach's ideas
                concerning the social performance of the self? More
                generally, how might we consider these questions in
                relation to networked social media, where many of these
                processes can be seen played out?</div>
              <div><br>
              </div>
              <div>I fear you will read what I've written here and think
                it is of an ilk you might consider as an "obsessive
                compulsive rehearsing of highly stratified bureaucratic
                cataloguing of meaning". It might well be. If so then
                I'd be especially interested in your thoughts.</div>

                          sufficient meaning to agglomerate a conclusion

                          suspect though, that this is also the case.</div>

                          associated groupings)<i>,&nbsp;</i>is now dead.</div>
                        <p class="MsoNormal">Here are my reasons for <i>thinking</i>
                          this:</p>
                        <p class="MsoNormal">For several million years
                          the human project has advanced its
                          requirement to export memory and knowledge
                          outside of itself, beyond the
                          material, into its exogramatic form, data.</p>
                        <p class="MsoNormal">Prior cognitive
                          distributive networks are
                          reconfiguring to enable this development to
                          engage in valuable exchange, but the
                          'language' that has served us well
                          previously, is no longer fit for task and is
                          currently responsible for
                          remediating the vista before us &#8211; the
                          consequence is that the landscape we view
                          seems to appear as one thing, but is in fact
                          something else altogether.</p>
                        <div>Effectively our thinking minds are getting
                          in the way.</div>
                        <p class="MsoNormal">New 'language' is
                          developing but due to an
                          increased velocitisation of human experience
                          language is lagging behind neural
                          developments - the reason being, theoretic
                          language per se developed from the needs of
                          the prior
                          paradigm and is of a ratiocinatory
                          bureaucratic construction. Using it to
                          describe something that is beyond its nature
                          renders it inherently reductionist.</p>
                        <p class="MsoNormal">We now need to
                          conceptualise new forms of
                          communication to suit and be relevant to the
                          paradigmatic changes within
                          cognitive distributive networks &#8211; Fortunately
                          for us, Art is the primary
                          vessel for this communication. Unfortunately
                          for us, current artistic behaviour
                          is rehearsing past and increasingly irrelevant
                          concerns.</p>
                        <p class="MsoNormal">In developing an
                          appropriate response to the
                          nature of the incoming paradigm, we need to <i>cognate</i>
                          beyond the kinds of thought
                          we have known until now - we need to create
                          new behaviours that utilise our
                          next developmental stage of mind, which uses
                          entrainment rather than ratiocinatory,
                          rehearsed frontal lobe behaviour, as its
                          primary form.</p>
                        <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US">&nbsp;</span>&#8230;So
                          I've stayed away from the analogue based
                          theoretical language of the last 70 years
                          because that use of language
                          compromises the possible changes. Given my
                          proposition, ratiocination is the
                          'worry-beads' of the
                          mind, but entrainment is a possible way of
                          leading towards a way in which the human
                          psyche can now
                          begin to respond. There&#8217;s
                          nothing wrong with the thinking mind &#8211; in its
                          place - which is to follow, rather
                          than lead human cognition.</p>
                        <p class="MsoNormal">The thinking mind takes its
                          lead from the deep cognitive mind.&nbsp;</p>
                        <p class="MsoNormal">Between the two is the
                          intermediary state, which used to be described
                          as intuition. It processed deep cognition and
                          rendered it understandable to the thinking
                          mind - intuition in gnostic circles was known
                          as inward teaching, where the thinking mind
                          was 'instructed' in its duties. Now intuition
                          is simply <i>the intermediary process - </i>because
                          our late Enlightenment thinking requires
                          demystification. But demystification empowers
                          thinking and disempowers intuitive cognition.</p>
                        <div>This description is another fairy tale -
                          but:</div>
                        <p class="MsoNormal">Becoming sensitive to the
                          production of this mechanism is the primary
                          behaviour required
                          for understanding the incoming paradigm - and
                          resistance, in this particular case, is
                          futile.</p>
