Mind Meld Log, stardate 220830 (30Aug22)

The Denkiri Centre for Creativity was established on Astraios Prime in the early months of 2422 as a means of outreach to the scientists, philosophers, artists, engineers, and designers who dwell in the Gamma Quadrant. Its philosophy was inspired by the Terran author Gene Roddenberry, who had, in the 20th and 21st Century, envisioned a universe in which sentient life forms would gather to share knowledge, conduct research, and improve the quality of life for all. The Centre hosts brainstorming sessions, organizes an open lecture series, manages artistic exhibits, conducts tours, and works to enhance the immersive environment through building, scripting and developing knowledge of the sector and quadrant.

ACTIVITY: 'Mind Meld' brainstorming session
HELD: Stardate 220830, 10:30am 3RG/SLT
LOCATION: Denkiri Cafe, UF Starfleet Astraios.

We discussed:
-Does genetic memory exist?
-How do we know things we never learned?
-What is instinct, does it differ from genetic recollection?
-What if an alien race is based on genetic memory - if it can't be remembered, it is wrong. Interesting notion
-mind/machine interfaces would get around that - universal access to your own - or everybody's - Dropbox of backed up memories
-if we didn't have memory, we'd be radically different... no stories
-"If we didn't have memory" - we would continue to make the same mistakes over and over again. (some people do anyway)
-When we send our messages into space, are we looking for other storytellers?
-Ephermera-things that exist or are used or enjoyed for only a short time.
-"The Sparrow" might be a good book to read
-how did human beings build similar things around the globe when they had never seen each other.
-It's interesting that the ancient world built so many things we cannot build now, even with our advanced technology. So we have 'forgotten' what we knew.
-if we could time travel maybe we could answer some of these questions.
-a discussion of UAPs
-what if UAPs are humans from other times/dimensions


"Mild Meld is a meeting of minds, a playful tossing out of ideas, silly and serious... the wilder the better... no idea is criticized. We may find that that wild idea and this crazy thought meld together into something really cool, or we may just have collective coffee and rambunctious fellowship. It's all good." As Gene Roddenberry said: "To be different is not necessarily to be ugly; to have a different idea is not necessarily to be wrong. The worst possible thing is for all of us to begin to look and talk and act and think alike."

Next 'Mind Meld's' will be held:
Fri Sep 2, 1000PM/2200hrs SLT/3RG.
Tue Sep 13th @ 10:30am SLT/3RG.

All are welcome to attend.
