Transcending the Boundaries of Rational Thought



Experiment 1




Experiment overview
An attempt to stimulate the human mind into novel thinking patterns and cognitive modes by creating random symbolic associations throughout one's immediate attention and memory.


This experiment started as a near-instant writting collaboration between two authors using Ai-powered text processing algorithms that disorganize blocks of text in ways that imitate their original local ordering.


The second phase of this experiment involved the use of tools that provide instant "telepathic" collaborative authoring. The effort was directed towards instilling more "coherent rationality" into the original apparent chaotic collection of words.

FRANK THEYS (°1963, Brussels) studied Philosophy and Fine Arts in Brussels. He works as a video, film and theater maker. He lives and works in Brussels and Amsterdam. http://www.frank-theys.net







Frank is the Director/ writer of the film "TechnoCalyps"


TechnoCalyps is a 3 part documentary about ‘transhumanism’, an ideology assuming that we approach an era where humans, as we know them, are no longer the driving force of civilization. All technological developments seem to converge to one main goal: to overcome humanity, to try and create something transhuman.

Deel 1: Transhumanism

Part 1 gives an overview of recent technological developments (biogenetics, artificial intelligence, robotics, implants, nanotechnology,…) and prognoses made by leading scientists about the impact of these developments in the near future.
Deel 2: Preparing for the Singularity
In this part advocates and opponents of a transhuman future are weighed against each other; prognoses are done when we can expect the transhuman revolution and how people are preparing for it already now.

Deel 3: The Digital Messiah
This part covers the metaphysical consequences of the new technological revolution. On the one hand scientist start to use metaphysical concepts to describe the impact of their research, on the other hand, a surprisingly large number of scientific projects is inspired by religious aspirations and more and more theologians from any religious or spiritual belief are getting interested in these aspirations of new technology, making the discussion inextricable complex.

Episode 3


FRANK THEYS (°1963, Brussels) studied Philosophy and Fine Arts in Brussels. He works as a video, film and theater maker. He lives and works in Brussels and Amsterdam. http://www.frank-theys.net







Frank is the Director/ writer of the film "TechnoCalyps"


TechnoCalyps is a 3 part documentary about ‘transhumanism’, an ideology assuming that we approach an era where humans, as we know them, are no longer the driving force of civilization. All technological developments seem to converge to one main goal: to overcome humanity, to try and create something transhuman.

Deel 1: Transhumanism

Part 1 gives an overview of recent technological developments (biogenetics, artificial intelligence, robotics, implants, nanotechnology,…) and prognoses made by leading scientists about the impact of these developments in the near future.
Deel 2: Preparing for the Singularity
In this part advocates and opponents of a transhuman future are weighed against each other; prognoses are done when we can expect the transhuman revolution and how people are preparing for it already now.

Deel 3: The Digital Messiah
This part covers the metaphysical consequences of the new technological revolution. On the one hand scientist start to use metaphysical concepts to describe the impact of their research, on the other hand, a surprisingly large number of scientific projects is inspired by religious aspirations and more and more theologians from any religious or spiritual belief are getting interested in these aspirations of new technology, making the discussion inextricable complex.

You are greater Intelligence



I have always grown up thinking that you don’t learn new things, but simply remember things you once knew. This philosophy has led me to want to remember all the beautiful knowledge laid hidden from man, and while it may seem that there is very little to be known that nearly all possible stories have been told, I believe we have yet to even scratched the surface to all the possible knowledge that can be gained within our universe.  This drive to seek knowledge and the pursuit of greater existence is what I believe has led men to think about an existence which “transcends” our current humanity. Surely there must be more to all that exist.  On a scientific level we are certain that deep in the belly of the universe lies answers to question we have yet to ask, this is why we are building a billion dollar machine in Switzerland in hopes of understand things we can’t begin to question at the moment.  Now science seeks to create an intelligence creator than our own.  We believe that also hidden deep in the secrets of matter and philosophical code we may one day create or release greater intelligence.


While in parallel religion not only has postulated that a greater intelligence exist but has created a system of worship around it.  Unlike science religion set the parameters to its vision of greater intelligence so high that it transcended the universe itself.  God not only is the creation itself but the root cause of it. God to religion became an intelligence powerful enough that it is able to hold the entire universe up with a single thought.  Thus we are just a thought to a greater intelligence. In a similar fashion science is now playing catch up and believes that it may one day be possible to have an intelligence powerful enough to simulate the universe to a level of complexity that rivals that of reality. Assuming this is reality. I believe science is rationally trying to create what religion already invented, God.  Now it's turning into a perceptional magic eye of who is creating who, the best way or the simplest way is to just assume greater intelligence is attempting to create greater intelligence.

Now instantly this appears  to most people that it is impossible to create a mind of greater intelligence than the mind that is currently attempting to create it.  That argument also attempts to make the field of Artificial intelligence into something short of a mystical guest for a holy grail. This statement  would have validity only if you believed you were not already greater intelligence. Remember  what I told you my philosophy was we are not learning new things, but rather we are simply remembering things we once knew. In the field of all possible knowledge I tend to view consciousness a bit of an antenna tuned into this particular field of intelligence.  Therefore we are all connected to a greater intelligence to begin with.  Instead of viewing the field of artificial intelligence as the creation of beings more intelligent  than our selves I view it as the field of building an antenna  (mind) capable of tuning in stronger to the frequency of intelligence than we can thus giving it a better reception and materialistically giving us a machine that is now smarter than us.

Yet here is the irony of all of this, instead of creating an antenna of better intelligence reception why not work on your internal antenna  seek to tap to the universal mind yourself.  Don’t forget you were made in the image of God and thus are greater intelligence yourself. Unfortunately its just lays inside of you untapped, but a revolution is coming a revolution similarly to the singularity only not just with technology but with spirit. Soon enough a mortal will spiritually tap into the universal mind and thus rival any machine intelligence created.

Return to the source of intelligence and you shall learn that you are too also greater intelligence.
