Christopher G. Moore Updates: 17 October 2014

Dear Friends,

What we remember and what we forget defines us in many ways. We draw our identity from our memories. In my essay, I have a look at how those memories are often ones we automatically have as result of our cultural and language history. Collectives memories also create a collective identity whether that identity is shaped around a nation state, football team, or a corporation.

You can find Collective Amnesia here: http://cgmoore.com/blog/

I also discuss Nick Bostrom's Superintelligence, Paths, Dangers, Strategies, which may be one of the most disturbing books written to date about the potential of super smart AI systems. For such an 'entity' the difference between the intelligence of the village idiot and Einstein becomes indistinguishable.

Hopefully you find some new ideas in the essay that will cause you to reflect on how and what you remember. On the subject of memory, don't forget to support your favorite authors and buy their books. For instance, Timothy Hallinan new Poke Rafferty novel, For the Dead. Or James A. Newman's Red Night Zone - Bangkok City.

Best,
Christopher

The overall effect is a powerful vision of one writer’s memory shaped by the forces of myth-making, illusions, history and imagination. More>>

Calvino investigates the death of a friend, a Canadian painter. The medical examiner finds the young man has ingested an exit drug, and the police verdict of suicide seems justified. But in Bangkok appearances have a habit of deceiving. Sometimes jumpers are given a leg up in their leap to the next life. Fingering the helper can be a risky business, and for Calvino this promises to be one of those times. More>>
