The Web My intuition about

The Web
My intuition about the Web has always been that it best approximates how we do our deepest, most relevant thinking. Others, like Kurzweil, may agree. My hope is that the Web will stay out of our control (in the way that Maciej Toporowicz speaks about and against control) so that we can ensure that beauty surfaces and the unknown continues to haunt us.
Of course, beauty and the sublime are not everything, nor can they be. But I still argue that the Web privileges everything that could be right with the world, offering us continuity, communication, communion, and connectedness. The word “mean,” after all, stems from the Old High German meinen meaning “to have in mind.” It’s perhaps what G-d had “in mind” in creating an evolutionary brain.
