Stephen Aizenstat, Ph.D. – Lecturer and Abstract

‘Mixed Realities: The Fate of the Dream in the Future of a Cyber World’

We live in a world dependent on the digital code of algorithms. Highly complex systems of cyber technology are replacing human imagination and expression, once rooted in the organicity of the Anima Mundi, the soul of the world. Advanced machines, cyborgs, have attained high level capabilities of consciousness (e.g., intelligence, attention, autonomy, and intention). At lightning speed, the future of human experience will be located in a matrix of virtual, augmented, and mixed realties. The fate of the dream, originating in the mystery of psyche, is challenged by the take-over of the programmer’s digital code. In this talk, I will explore the dynamic tension between the innate intelligence of the living dream, rooted in the ‘Mundus Imaginalis,’ and the artificial intelligence of the cyber image, located in the vast ‘Network of Technology.’ Working with particular approaches from Dream Tending as well as actual tools of computer technology, I will invite participants to ‘see-through’ into the future of life on our planet and, too, the fate of the dream. In a world increasingly dominated by the influence of machines, where is the peril and where is the promise?
