Dear New York Philosophy meetup members:

I want to add to my suggestion to Ethics and Morality of Technology Applications by referring to a recent NY Times article,

"Scientists Worry Machines May Outsmart Man,"
published 07/25/09 by John Markoff.

here is the link:

This is a serious matter. I'd like to apply some basic philosophical ideas to this such as if Nietzsche were alive today how would he induct his Apollonian and Dionysian analysis to artificial intelligence which is both a work of beauty but has also elements of the self actualization of self through primordial unity. What do you think?


All the best,

Alex Cholakis

A team of US scientists have engineered bacteria that can solve complex mathematical problems faster than anything made from silicon.As time goes by, a bacterial computer will actually increase in power as the bacteria reproduce.

In ads women are portrayed as the adult, while men generally are made out to be infantile, stupid and dumb.

The topic: femininity is rapidly declining and New York City women are becoming matriarchal.
