We pursue original insights based jointly on empiricism and theoretical science. Our approach is dynamical, non-linear, non-reductionistic, and non-simplistic. It is grounded on intrinsic biological, evolutionary, emergent and complexity theory concepts. We examine the paradigmatic shift from the genetic (DNA) to the cognitive (human brain, Global Brain), and its consequences.

The tendency 'from simple to complex' is crucial in our vision, as it embodies an evolutionary situation whereby certain long-living humans may display enhanced adaptive capabilities, and may exhibit successful fitness within their specific niche (which is the current process that could lead to technological and developmental singularities).

We believe in a comprehensive model of artificial and spontaneous approaches that may lead to a transition from the hegemony of the current pattern of evolution by natural selection (birth/procreation/death) to a more permanent scenario which will allow more efficient trait acquisition, and thus increase fitness within a niche of technological acceleration. The context and thrust of our research are represented within a formalised framework.
