Mind Extensions website

In Western tradition, thinking has been commonly seen as a very secluded activity. As our environment is getting more and more saturated with technologies, it is becoming clear however, that our minds are less separated from the world as we might think. Many questions arise, questions about artificial intelligence, about the technologies we use to solve problems and how these affect the way we think. What does it mean to know something when we have all the world’s information at our fingertips? Can thinking technologies help us to understand more complex problems? What does it mean when technology enters the brain? Can we decode our brain activity to such extent that we can actually read people’s thoughts? Does the use of technological aids affect what we should learn? How should this change be incorporated in our education system?

The Mind Extensions website aims to create an environment where ideas around these matters are created, collected, exchanged and discussed. These ideas can come in many different shapes and sizes: from essays to interactive artworks and from poems to web lectures. We hope to build an active community with various people from different disciplines who read, write, share and discuss posts.
