What will ET look like when we meet him/her/it?


I think some clarification is in order.  The wikipedia definition of collective intelligence is “a shared or group intelligence that emerges from the collaboration and competition of many individuals“.  The Borg have enforced collective intelligence, where all members of their society engage in collective intelligence, willing or not.  Swarm intelligence is defined as the collective behaviour of decentralized, self-organized systems, natural or artificial (thanks again wikipedia), which is what I was referring to when I spoke of ants and bees.  Enforced collective intelligence is something to be afraid of, collective intelligence and swarm intelligence are not.  Swarm intelligence is really kinda cool (see my last post for a reblog on that subject)!  Do you (the readers) know of any defintions I missed on this fascinating subject?

  1. You’ve made some decent points there. I looked on the internet for more information about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this website.

    • Here I thought I was making statements people would argue with! No, really, I tend not to make statements I can’t defend logically. Thanks for the comment!
