self-transforming thing-controller system-thing


ok. The humans is controlling, ordering and reflecting, the world – the matter. It is an activity we are always engaged in as we move through life. In the act of reflecting and ordering we generate things. It is as impossible to move through the world wothout reflecting and ordering matter into things as it is to move through a world without space and time. This context, space and time, is the game plan that is set when we encounter matter. The human condition is to always posess and assimilate objects.

Technologie is under this contidion to. Even thou technologies doesnt really need the human it still needs to be something, it need to be in the condition space and time. We generate technologies that is detached from the body, where the human hand is not needed. Inventions that make invetions. A set of second-hand-inventions Technologie is the system that holds the things still being the thing mabe by us. It is a ‘system-thing’ that is made by us for a purpose and it is also a thing that starts to transform us as we need to adapt to the new things and new thing-conditions generated by the ‘thing-system’. Technology is a self-transforming thing-controller and thing-maker, an intellectual context, context of reflections. In a sence one could perhaps say that the human is the first ‘self-transforming thing-controller system-thing’. Being both the system that upolds and transforms the things and being the thing that constitute the system and the transformation. What comes first, the hen or the egg?
The thing is always in the making, in a constant change, re-formulated and re-systemized. Our perception makes it possible to understand the things in process. So, what about the things we cant percive, the in-betweens. Is there such a thing if the thing is being made when we reflect upon them, when they are mirrored against us. If it is only a question of resolution and focus, we could say that the higgs particle starts to be a thing when we start to reflect upon it, before that it doesnt exixt or is only matter, but still in the context of space and time. Still changing. Things becomes the matter of the reflections. Matter is the un-reflected things that we yet cant percive? But what about the things that never ever is physical and never ever will be?

Digital technologie is based on ones and zeros, binary codes. Because of that we can say that all digital representation of the analog is a simplification. But the digital makes it possible for us to perceive large amount of data, so huge numbers that it is impossible for the human mind and body to calculate, order and reflect upon. This new thing that is being perceived through the simplified inteface is a complexification of the thing because we in this instance can perrcive the thing with a focus not possible in the analog. Things are potentially lost in the translation, the thing becomes something else. Parts that is percivable in the non-measuable object is perhaps lost, but maybe we gain another kind on perceptive, another perspective. Maybe we can develope a perception of the non-matter. An information perception that is possible to use in the digital as well as in the non-material…

    It´s true that, as you say the analog is a simplification of the digital representation.The physical world consists the code of the digital and are not present when for example writing this comment on the blog. The symbols though are all constructed and written already and the composition and code therefore can be seen as almost more analogue then let´s say organs, cells and molecules that where not constructed by our code.
