BBC has done a mini-series on the “evolution” of robots, even speaking of invasive species. The silence on the “by design” part is conspicuous, especially as they use a biologist (male) and an engineer (female) as their key personalities:
The blindness to the obvious is glaring, inadvertently showing the blinding power of a dominant, flawed paradigm.
But, what about reproduction and evolution? Here, von Neumann’s self replicating machine gives us a window into the further required level of design involved:
What we are seeing, in short, is induced blindness to the obvious.
Where, of course, simply the use of alphanumeric, algorithmic code
. . . and thus, communication systems
. . . in D/RNA to make proteins is a big clue that language, intelligence and design are antecedent to cell-based, protein-using biological life:
We need to ask some very pointed questions about what is going on, not only in the media but in academic and professional institutions. Such blindness is not accidental. END
