I don’t think it’s going to be nec­es­sar­i­ly a prob­lem with­in the next five to ten, fif­teen, to may­be even twen­ty years. But my per­spec­tive on it has always been, because I am more philo­soph­i­cal­ly focused in the­se things, why not try to address the issues before they arrive? Why not try to think about the­se ques­tions before they become prob­lems that we have to fix?

Mindful Cyborgs #55 — Magick & the Occult with­in the Internet and Corporations with Damien Williams

in Mindful Cyborgs

We can see the hid­den, occult oper­a­tions of pro­gram­mers, of peo­ple who are seek­ing to get very speci­fic out­comes by oper­at­ing on very par­tic­u­lar com­po­nents, rit­u­al­ly oper­at­ing with­in very par­tic­u­lar sym­bol­ic frame­works. People who are using par­tic­u­lar cod­ing lan­guages, peo­ple who are using par­tic­u­lar setups of hard­ware because for their pur­pos­es, for their end goals, the­se are the things that get the job done. These are the things that have the res­o­nance and the capa­bil­i­ty, the pow­er, the effi­ca­cy, to do the work.
