SciFi Art Feature — Alejandro Burdisio

 

Hey SciFi fans, I came across Alejandro Burdisio the other day, and wanted to share some of his stuff with you. He creates sureal, retro-futuristic concept art of floating cars, trains, and suburb-style town houses that I find quite lovely.

Have a look:

You can find more of his work here. Cheers! 🙂

Mind Viruses and Meme AIDS


I just published my first essay on Medium.com. It’s me trying to get down some recent thoughts about the abusive way media interacts with us lately.

Take a look and give me a clap or two if you enjoy it!

MEME IMMUNE DEFICIENCY SYNDROME & GM RELIGIONs

“Synthetic memeplexes — advanced, bespoke, hyper-persuasive mind parasites —cost money and are built to achieve a purpose. While their designers have the whole repertoire of human drives, vices, virtues, appetites, empathies, phobias and urges to play with, in practice, to best achieve their goals, the easiest buttons to press are the basest and most animalistic; start with outrage, fear, loathing and gluttony.”

Triangles in the Sky

As the very early universe expanded, driving pairs of virtual particle apart, it left patterns in the distribution of matter.
Astronomers are looking for these ‘Non-Gaussianities’ of galaxies and galaxy clusters at opposite ends of the universe. They theorize that the distribution of structure at the largest scales will reveal the mechanisms and geometries of the big bang.
