Protocells are the elements the series
is made from. Beesley will give an introductory talk. Then Beesley will
present a quasi-metabolic 'happening' that uses collective
neurosignaling to grow next-generation Hylozoic Series protocell
formations. Participants will be given headsets and divided into two
groups. Sound and light stimuli will synchronize the groups' thought
patterns, which will in turn drive syringe pumps feeding a protocell
mixture. This primitive, quasi-metabolic system integrates human thought
patterns with interactive computing and synthetic biology. The notion of
a collective consciousness is at the heart of the event.
With Philip Beesley, Mark-David Hosale, and Alan Macy.
