Out of the Craddle

“A planet is the cradle of mind, but one cannot live in a cradle forever.” K.E.Tsiolkovsky

The Out of the Craddle Symposium at KSEVT Slovenia rethinks the human position within the technological, social and natural processes, the position which enables understanding of the deep and close surroundings – Space and Earth.

Konrad Becker on: “Strategic Space Command, Control, Communications, and Intelligence”

In an age of permanent crisis a military-entertainment economy dominates operative technologies of space-time control and omnidirectional low-intensity conflicts. Space, the strategic frontline of digital control revolutions is the place for contesting this mediated militarization.

Space travel relies on highly automatized information systems. Mapping space-time and information intertwines technologies of representation for complex environments. This transfer of authority to machines enhances dimensional distortions and category errors that influence social action determined by classification schemes.

Space, a multidimensional product of use, experience and understanding, extends to the relational world of dreamtime. Perception and behavior management shapes psycho-social interaction based on the gravitational pull of longing and the repulsion of fear. In a hyperspace control matrix communication becomes a transversal force for the colonization of both outer and inner space. Imagination is not just a subjective process but central to the emergence of the real where fact follows fiction. Autonomous cultural intelligence against planetary peacekeeping containment is a practice that frees technologies of imagination to other possible worlds.
