As humans and as living beings we have an instinct from birth, an instinct to interact with our environment and modify it, to exercise our creative intelligence, and I want laws, or forms of society and culture that support me in the use of my creative intelligence and communally or group creative intelligence. So that's where I'm coming from. Well, the name for my branch of the project now is Libre Living, which includes pretty much everything I like, everything that interests me. It starts with mapping all the tools I use, both physical (tangible) and intangible. So ... Making a map of everything I use and seeing which technologies already exist in libre form, and which don't, seeing where the holes are, where we're lacking libre development. And, it seems to me that there are even technologies that exist in libre form that don't exist in patented form. And... things like ... such as ... everything we inherit from the entire existence of the universe, such as the working of chemistry, physics, trees, and our own bodies. Technology is another branch of biology. In so far as we are natural beings ... that is, for me, the concept of nature, unless someone defines limits, includes everything. Everything physical is, in a way, a memory. It exists because some process happened and this is recorded as a memory of that process. It's just that maybe I don't know how to read this memory. I don't know how this plastic was manufactured. I don't know much about the production of computers yet. I start with the longest term, which is... For a year I was saying look: I like my food local, organic, grown in a respectable way, respecting everyone, and I want my computer to be the same. I want it locally produced, biodegradable, maybe even edible, fairly and respectfully produced. And, saying this for a year, I finally looked online, to see if anyone else was thinking about this. And I found that, at the beginning of this year [2011], a group of four universities prototyped an edible circuit. It's made of plant-based materials, of corn and carrots and such things. Right now the prototype is nowhere near what we think of as a computer, they're making an insulin pump that can be implanted in one's body and pumps insulin, and then dissolves and the body metabolizes it. It's like the distinction between biodegradable and biocompatible. Something might degrade, but if it breaks down and in turn becomes food for something else, there we see biocompatibility. Even the concept of waste doesn't serve us: it's a surplus... something leftover that's misplaced. For example, there's... Well, the concept of "cradle to cradle" is ... Well, we know we want to manufacture computers. Well, we take the list of possible components at the molecular level and see ... Well, those that are toxic, which require rare materials, or require very toxic extraction, we remove from the list. And so we narrow down the list to things that support life. We apply some of that process. And maybe someone tells me "Oh, no, but you can't do that." [make a biocompatible computer] But look, we humans along with the rest of the world, got to where we are, when a girl in China can write something, and a boy in Chile can read it, translated by a machine, a minute after it's written and he responds! We are wonderful! And don't tell me we can't do it.
