Living in Hyperscale: Internalization as a Search for Reunification

Ron Cottam, Willy Ranson, Roger Vounckx


Living organisms survive through their generation and use of internal models of themselves and of their environments. Homo sapiens internalizes the environment through modeling in such a way that it can effectively be artificially present at any number of different external locations. While this capacity is clearly advantageous for survival, it may well have yet another 'meaning'. We believe that entities internalize their environment in a local attempt to reunify the fragmented global landscape of which they are a part. This paper charts the argumentational route which must be taken to justify this hypothesis.
