The Superultramodern (SUM) Solipsism: The simpler universal design, the personal philosophical questioning supermind, and the mysterious basic feeling

The Superultramodern (SUM) Solipsism: The simpler universal design, the personal philosophical questioning supermind, and the mysterious basic feeling

The superultramodern (SUM) solipsism is a strong metaphysical semi-solipsistic position constituted of some ideas in superultramodern (SUM) science and philosophy. The first idea or strand is the NSTP (Non – Spatial Thinking Process) theoretical metaphysical semi-solipsism, the position that within the semi-idealistic framework of the NSTP theory ‘I’ and ‘the superhuman mind’ are the only material entities that exist, for the non-existence of other non-superhuman minds simply makes the universal design (i.e. the superhuman engine) simpler, as the engine needs no additional intelligence/information to create a variety of specific spatial illusions through multiple (non-superhuman) NSTPs. The second strand further sees the superhuman design and/or designer, through an astrological framework, as a personal philosophical questioning supermind, the mind which, apparently being highly reasonable, has further no good reason to create tremendous suffering through the existence of other non-superhuman minds which are simply unable to answer its profound philosophical questions. The third strand is a composite of two mutually complementary basic feelings that this miraculous thing called consciousness exists, and that it is particularly ‘I’ who is conscious, and thus other entities, at least other non-superhuman entities, might be unconscious, and that Truth would always be different from how it commonsensically appears to be.

Using the Internet depends, in the first instance, on access to the network. The initial emergence of "the Internet" in the early 1990s, from the increasing connectivity of a series of university and government networks alongside private services like America Online, Prodigy, and CompuServe, occurred almost entirely across slow dial-up modem connections over telephone wires. Sufficient for email, Usenet news groups, transferring relatively small files, and later viewing simple web pages, slow transfer made consumption of data rich content infuriating and its provision unprofitable. There was, however, an important compatibility between the Internet architecture and the plain old telephone system. The basic protocols of the Internet treat all information as equal. They do not recognize rich content or poor content, content owned by one person or another. So too, the basic telephone network, because it is regulated as a common carrier by the FCC, was required to treat all these data calls alike. These consistencies meant that in this new medium, unlike in the mass media of the 20th century -- television, cable, and newspapers -- no one had much of an advantage over anyone else in communicating their views to the world. The low bandwidth available also meant that "production value" -- expensive sets and cameras -- that also limited access to the opportunities to speak in traditional mass media, were less important. The result was a substantially more egalitarian communications medium than any that the 19th and 20th century had known, at least for a while and for limited communications applications. (less)
