Logos

Logos, in ancient and medieval philosophy and theology, the divine reason that acts as the ordering principle of the universe. Sixth-century BC Greek philosopher Heraclitus asserted that the world is governed by the Logos, a divine internal linkforce that produces order in the internal linkflux of nature. In Stoicism of the 4th century BC, the Logos is conceived as a rational divine power that directs the universe. Through the faculty of reason, all human beings share in the divine reason. According to 1st-century AD Jewish-Hellenistic philosopher Philo Judaeus, the Logos can be understood as the Divine Wisdom that is inherently part of the world.

...the internal linknoosphere...no longer served as a mere passive repository of human internal linkinformation (the "Seas of  Knowledge" which ancient internal linkSumer believed in) but, due to the incredible surge of charge from our electronic signals and information-rich material therein, we have given it power to cross a vast threshold; we have, so to speak, resurrected what Philo and other ancients called Logos. Information has, then, become alive..."

Phillip K. Dick, in one of his last novels, internal link_Valis_, discusses the long hibernation of the Logos. A creature of pure internal linkinformation, it was buried in the ground at Nag Hammadi, along with the burying of the Chenoboskion Library circa 370 A.D. As static information, it existed there until internal link1947, when the texts were translated and read. As soon as people had the information in their minds, the internal linksymbiote came alive, for, like the internal linkmushroom consciousness, Dick internal linkimagined it to be a thing of pure information. The mushroom consciousness is the consciousness of the Other in internal linkhyperspace, which means in internal linkdream and in the internal linkpsilocybin  internal linktrance, at the internal linkquantum  internal linkfoundation of being, in the human future, and after death. All of these places that were thought the be discrete and separate are seen to be part of a single continuum. History is the dash over ten to fifteen thousand years from nomadism to flying saucer, hopefully without ripping the envelope of the planet so badly that the birth is aborted and fails, and we remain brutish internal linkprisoners of matter.

"A more perfect Logos would seem to be the result--a Logos able to regulate the activity of the ego as it exists in the sum total of individuals living at any internal linktime. It is like god; it is the human god.  It is something that will happen to human destiny sometime in the future, and because it will happen, it is happening. Nothing is unannounced.  The ontological mode of the higher internal linkdimensions into which humanity is being propelled is being anticipated by the internal linksingularity that we call the wholly Other or the alien. The internal linkalien is teaching something through its reinforcement schedule:  It is preparing us to confront the god facet of ourselves that our explorations into the nature of life and matter are about to reveal."

Singularity Marshall McLuhan feeling your way up the dimensional ladder...

Well, when I talk about the Logos I always invoke Philo Judaeus, who introduced the concept of the Logos into the Hellenistic world but who was unsatisfied with it and spent a great deal of time talking about the more perfect Logos, the Logos that goes from being heard to being seen without ever crossing over a definable moment of transition. In a sense, my position is that all of history is a making of the Logos more and more concrete. In the same way that internal linkMcLuhan saw print culture as replacing an earlier, eye-oriented manuscript culture, my hope is that internal linkcyberdelic culture is going to overcome the linear, uniform bias of print and carry us into a realm of the visible Logos. I really believe that not only human society is involved in what could be looked at as a conquest of dimensions but that biology itself is, as well. This is the great overarching theme of internal linkevolution---this is why we go from being internal linkslime mold to having binocular vision and bipedalism and then adding internal linkmemory and internal linklanguage at the top end of animal organization. Itís because the thing which we are, whether you call it bios or logos incarnate or whatever, is striving to ascend to higher and higher dimensions.
