Transformation into INFORGs

22 октября, 2021 от Kinok Выкл


And yet, the idea that it is rather «the crown of nature» on Earth will no longer be people, but some other creatures, it sounds increasingly from the mouth of very well-known intellectuals.

These new, possessing other type of creator of creator of the «Information Philosophy»

At first glance, such a picture is unthinkable than the evolutionary challenges of the transformation of people in some new creatures looks absolutely fantastic.

What can make evolution so accelerate? Influence of algorithms?

No one argues with the fact that the effect of algorithms on the life of people is avalanche-like growing.

But how can our brain and our genes be changed as a result of this?

Attempts to answer these questions and is dedicated to the real post, which is a continuation of the series



I will try, if possible, clearly and briefly, argue this hypothesis. Much in it is extremely speculative, something can be checked, and something is not checked at all (and a similar situation, alas, is quite typical for the most important and discussion scientific topics).

Nevertheless, I hope that this hypothesis and the argument underlying it will be useful to describe for consideration by a wide audience. For the topic is extremely important.

The image of a person’s personality, turning into inforgi, is defined far from only the identity of his biological incarnation, but also

In this section, we will try to strudule the logic of the process, during which people can turn into informers. The bases and mechanisms of such a transformation can be described by the synthesis of three very promising, but so far far from well-known theories:

2.1 The theory of cognitive evolution of man

This theory is designed known

The main provisions describing the logic of the Merlin theory of Donald can be formulated so.

Now let’s see how these provisions

2.2 Connectoma Brain Hytophesis Hypothesis

The main author «

According to this hypothesis, the cognitive abilities of the human brain, including the language, were significantly expanded during our relatively recent evolution from inhuman primates, despite only minor obvious changes at the gene level. Connectomic brain homium hypothesis offers an explanation of this paradox, based on the fundamental features of the human brain connectivity, which contribute to the characteristic anatomical, functional and computational neural phenotype. The hypothesis suggests

Maximum briefly can be set out so.

It is easy to see that the «theory of the cognitive evolution of a person» and the «Connectic Hypothesis of Mozhe Rominization» complement each other, describing the network processes of brain covolution and culture from positions, respectively, neuroanthropology and neurobiology:

The ideas that the coevolution of the brain and culture is the most likely mechanism of the formation of the human mind already entered mainstream of evolutionary science, bringing such new concepts as «

And more recently, the idea of the coevolution of the brain and culture produced a «cultural revolution» and in cognitive science, having laid the foundation of several new interdisciplinary areas of scientific research: from

However, neither the neuroanthropological theory of Merlin Donald nor the neurobiological hypothesis of Jean-Pierre SHANZHE do not allow to see

To see it, we will need to supplement the provisions of the Merlin theory of Donald and the hypothesis of Jean-Pierre S. Sanjo, another extremely interesting theory.

2.3 Theory of Cognitive Gadgets

The full name of the theory of the British cultural and evolution psychologist

The main provisions of this theory are as follows.

By reducing everything called to the formula, you can say so:

The «theory of cognitive gadgets» closes the conclusions of the «theory of the cognitive evolution of a person» and the «Connectic hypothesis of the threat of brain» on psychology. Now we can try to present a logical chain describing the transformation of people in the infornses on three-related culture levels.

It is necessary to immediately make a reservation that the scheme proposed here is the schematic description as simplified for understanding the schematic description of the most complicated processes occurring on three-related levels: neuroanthropology, neurobiology and cultural and evolutionary psychology.


The explosive progress of information technology radically changes the infosphere of humanity. There are so radical changes in the scale and a device of distributed cognitive networks, which is legitimate to talk about the formation of a new type of culture. It is fundamentally different from the traditional culture of the exchange of thoughts that has formed a unique trajectory of people’s evolution within tens of thousands of years. This difference is that the actors of cognitive networks, in addition to people, are algorithms. As a result of which culture ceases to be the culture of the exchange of thoughts of people, turning into



Adaptation to such radical changes in cultural practices is to reconfigure or replace cognitive gadgets. Their «Protocol, Interface and Information Exchange Algorithms» is changing with distributed cognitive networks.


«Rebuilding» is managed by the expression of structural genes that make up «gene networks». The expression of these genes encodes neural networks (forms the «firmware» of the brain), as a result of the constant interaction of a developing individual with cognitive networks of its physical, social and cultural medium. As a result of «flashing», it is reconfigured or replacing cognitive gadgets that determine the cognitive capabilities of a person in the cognitive networks of a new type.

Detailing this extremely simplified scheme in the framework of the traditional and new interdisciplinary interpretations of the cognitive evolution of a person (see

Catalyst processes that entail transformations of people in the infor

Socio-technical innovations generate new

N.B. The scheme described above is just one of the possible options. As alternative schemes for the description of the approximately the same processes of cognitive development, it is possible, for example, to name the concept

We give a few examples.

Degradation of cognitive capabilities:

The emergence of new cognitive capabilities:

Examples of similar changes in the circuit

There is naturally no, and there can be no significant reliable estimates of the speed of the speedy hypothetical transformation of people in inforns. As with all sorts of unique macroevolution «phase transitions» (

But in order to somehow estimate the order of magnitude that this is the millennium, century, decades, turn to two examples: destabilizing selection and adaptation to degradation.

4.1 destabilizing selection

The first example is a destabilizing selection, «says


Fox selected only one sign —

In the course of the experiment, triggers of genes were found out. Genes affecting the friendliness of man, roughly speaking, create

Based on the results of Belyaev’s experiments, it can be assumed that the human biology (not psychology, namely biology) can also be changed in just a few generations. In the correspondence of Belyaeva with the famous English researcher

4.2 Adaptation to Degradation

The second example illustrates

The fact is that one of the most important brain processes is

Examples of such recoveors and adaptations are given in the works of the American neurologist and the neuropsychologist, the author of several bestsellers describing the clinical stories of his patients,

For example, as described in the book of Oliver Sax

As for the speed of adaptation in the degradation of any of the cognitive gadgets, it is colossal. As the real clinical cases described by Sax in the mentioned book, the brain is capable of adapting to such changes for only a few years. For example, visuality is replaced by musicality, propriumception and vestibular reflexes — vision, etc.)

Sax also gives examples of the same rapid tuning of the brain, generating new ones who have previously occurring the ability. For example, the ability to distinguish thousands of odors, like a dog, can suddenly come after unsuccessful experiments with cocaine (when the drug action has already ended) — and also suddenly disappear after three weeks.

With such a tremendous rate of changes in cognitive functions, we now face as technological innovations drastically change the cultural practices of people.

This time may be enough to change the trajectory of the cognitive evolution of Homo Sapiens on the trajectory of the infor.

Where this trajectory is leading — unknown. But another is more disturbing. It seems that neither dozens, no one hundreds of years in civilization of people may not be.

After all, even faster than people, the society changes. And the main consequence of the transition to algocognitive culture for society is its
