The Beast: Life. In all its astounding diversity and intricate complexity. From the tiniest micro-organism to the mightiest whale or sequoia.
The Bard: Cognition. Including science and culture. The realm of thought and idea, of reason and inspiration. From the simplest forms of awareness to the most complicated manifestations of cognitive capacity.
The Bot: Technology. That pervasive and quickly developing force. From the most rudimentary tool use to manipulating life and attempts at creating artificial intelligence (a Bard-Bot?).
Over-arching and/or underlying theme: Evolution.
(Alternatively, the blog could have been called ‘Genes, Memes and Machines’. Hmm, that sounds good as well. Copyright.)
The Beast, the Bard and the Bot wander around in the head of a young man, who has studied biology (with an emphasis on behavior and evolution) and is currently pursuing a degree in philosophy of science.
