A theory of knowledge
Premise 3: The fundamental homeostatic bias of living bodies is the demand for regularity; the on-going necessity for the re-establishment and re-balancing of internal constancy and the agency to maintain that internal stability and reduction of entropy.
Premise 9: Language and culture are the offloaded instantiations of memory and order into the social environment. Technology is the instantiation of cultural memory and order in the physical environment and reduces entropy within the species.
Evolution of human extended consciousness
Adaptive narratives of trusted predictions become instantiated in intrinsic memory and embodied in the manufacture and use of tools so parallel processing of predicted conditions is unconscious and embodied within technology. That frees up cognitive resources to adapt to random processes by constructing physical and social predictions in the form of a self narrative within the virtual reality of working memory interacting with intrinsic memory. The virtual self is in a constant predictive and corrective cycle with sensomotor inferential process and that initiates the chain of learning that eventually instantiates order in technology and reduces entropy within the species.
