Science Fiction 2.0: Adhocracy and Hylozoism

Just visited a symposium in Amsterdam on Science Fiction and Science Faction about how SF influences technology and the otherway around.. Tonight two speakers were there: R.U. Sirius and Rudy Rucker

I would like to share two things that stuck after the symposium.

Adhocracy(term mentioned by R.U):

Adhocracy is a type of organization being an opposite of bureaucracy. The term was first popularized in 1970 by Alvin Toffler[1], and has since become often used in the theory of management of organizations (particularly online organizations), further developed by academics such as Henry Mintzberg.

Hylozoism(Term used by Rudy):

Hylozoism has an estimable history in philosophy, the word come from the Greek hyle, matter, and zoe, life. Hylozoism is related to the similar doctrine panpsychism, which says that every object has a mind.

Please check out the links for the definitions..

Marikaya has two main focus points: Holism and Purpose development

Ad-Hoc means literally “for purpose”. Hylozoism has clearly holistic tendencies and even anti mechanistic(reductionistic) thinking to it.

There is a connection..Both of the terms touch intrinsic value? It is soo close I can taste it. this will keep me up all night..

Here some random thoughts.. Feel free to associate:

organic, democratization of anything, flowing, dimensions, place in your context, Be, no past nor future, pulsing, accepting decay..
