Like a Brain, Like a Heart

Take a look at this graph and try to tell me the internet isn’t going to eventually wake up and, like, try to find other internets to play with.

Matt says…

I keep wondering… would we notice if the Internet “woke up”? Or would it be a mind so different from our own that we couldn’t even see it?

Paranoid take: would it *want* us to see it?

No, you’re exactly right, of course. Do our neurons ‘know’ we’re alive, conscious and eating Cheez-Its? Of course not.

Kinda disappointing though.

Of course not. Maybe they do and we don’t know it any more than in the other direction? Maybe we’re at the perfect scale for obliviousness?
