On what had to be the prettiest day the city has ever observed, Mimi and I did our (possibly) final school tour – F.I.T. The school is a slice of heaven in a hot, crowded, thrilling, dirty, vibrant city. I am a Media Ecologist and I study the environments of the media, technologies and the Universe and its entities. Douglass Rushkoff says that technologies as made us obsessed with the present – and rendered us unable to think deeply about the past or future. Rushkoff says that the onslaught of technologies in our lives has produced us obsessed with the present moment. It is the most respected and recognized style schools in America and the professors are wonderful.
In other words, it is an method to media that would be far better characterised as pre rather than post-McLuhanite (in the art historical sense of pre-Raphaelite) in that the complete co-implications of human beings and technologies is treated in a monolithic, rather than in a complicated way. If we now assume that there are technologically sophisticated civilizations with the technology to simulate life, we now have to ask whether or not they would. What are producing these health sensors possible are miniaturized mechanical and microelectromechanical (MEMS) components made employing micro fabrication technology.
As a result, if we believe that there are technologically sophisticated civilizations out there with the technologies to run a simulation of life, and that those civilizations are interested in running a simulation, we will practically absolutely be living in a simulation. I ‘spoke through hologram’, in 2011, to a bunch of entrepreneurs in Uruguay using technologies that a tiny business there, ‘Hologram’, had developed. This essentially signifies that technology controls the improvement of society and free will is minimalized to non-existent.
In bringing the ancient and medieval worlds into fusion—or, as some would say, confusion—the printed book designed a third planet, the modern world, which now en- counters a new electric technologies or a new extension of man. The media ecology can very best be viewed as a framework, a way of hunting at the globe through the lens that mediums and technologies are far more influential than the content of the messages they offer. This distinction signifies that a medium, is far more than just a machine (as technologies is), it is rather the social and intellectual atmosphere a machine creates” (p. 84).
Although the television as a piece of technologies could be utilised for any quantity of purposes from a light for the space to that of a radio, but that was not how it was adopted for use because its most novel feature was the broadcast of the visual medium (Postman, 1985). A single can readily see why this criticism could be applied to media ecology, but I believe particularly in todays media-centric society, it seems that we might in fact be beneath the deterministic energy of technology unstoppably cascading towards a convergence of man and technology that Ray Kurzwiel has dubbed the singularity” (Kurzweil, 2005).
