People Are Human-Bacteria Hybrid
Rowan Hooper 10.11.04 | 2:00 AM
Most of the cells in your body are not your own, nor are they even human. They are bacterial. From the invisible strands of fungi waiting to sprout between our toes, to the kilogram of bacterial matter in our guts, we are best viewed as walking "superorganisms," highly complex conglomerations of human cells, bacteria, fungi and viruses
Are you feeling calm? Now listen carefully and don't panic. You are suffering from a serious crisis of identity. Scientists
believe you are not entirely human. In fact, it's time to stop thinking of yourself as an individual, or even as a single
living thing. You are a hybrid that consists of only about 10 per cent human cells. The rest of you is made up of
We are entierly dependent on the microbial population for our wellbeing. A shift within this population, can trigger defects in metabolism nad development of diseases...
Once the bacteria for collective conglomerates that are thinking we enrich the language used inside the collective conglomerate through external processes. Language is the ability to convert experience into abstract symbols and it is a means of communication within a living entity (collective sphere) or from one entity (collective sphere) to another living entity (collective sphere). Several collective spheres (or balls) will acquire the same symbolism or language for the same experience and communicate with each other.
We can use exposure to different chemical or bio-chemical signals, different electrical stimulation, different magnetic stimulation, different electromagnetic stimulation, acoustic stimulation, mechanical stimulation, forcing in contact with other collective bodies, living cells, dead cells, cells in-vitro and in-vivo to stimulate the bacterial collectives.
In the above fashion, we propose to impress on bacteria a thinking collective that can be used to produce a self-programming computer with biological artificial intelligence. This exploits the collective properties of the bacteria and their ability to have language that living things innately have.
Which brings up an interesting point... an "organic trend" in the past 30 years is to eat yoghurt with acidophilus and other needed bacteria. But these new ones aren't necessarily adapted for your own body but rather for another physical being (the cow or something else.)
