Event description

Description

This is the third and final Moral Technologies conference in Australia, and its purpose is twofold; one aspect is to enable us as participants to engage with and understand the technological progress of the past, present and future. The other element is to use this understanding to seek new ways of thinking and working with existing technology in a practical sense, and also to develop new technologies. The intention is to speak of technologies not only in general terms, but also in their immediate details. This will cover topics ranging from old tools and steam engines to smartphone apps, in terms of processes as well as the materials used for these devices.

Technological progress is not random: it is therefore absolutely essential to develop a feeling for the method behind the changes that have happened over time, as a historical process. The way that technology has developed so far – culminating mostly in pushing buttons – is not the only way that the development could have happened. There are alternative paths, often completely overlooked, which have to be picked up again energetically in order to to bring morality to technical development. The technological stream can then redirected to better serve its ethical development. Identifying ways to achieve this kind of ethical development will be a positive outcome of this gathering.

The event will include conversations around ethics, creative workshops, games, silence and the deep experience that four days of living in community offers in terms of inspiration and nourishment.The full schedule will be online at the beginning of February.

For all questions please email moraltechnologies@gmail.com or call Rose Nekvapil on 0423491286

Scholarships are available to young people (38 and under) or anyone who would otherwise be unable to attend. Please email a brief story about yourself and your journey to MT, outlining your own contribution and what will support you to attend to rose.nekvapil@gmail.com.

We have grown an amazing network and the process has moved us to question our role as human beings in relationship with the future through our technological creations.

We look forward to seeing you there!


Dr. Gopi Krishna Vijaya is from Bangalore, India. He completed his undergraduate physics training at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (India), and his PhD in Physics (Solar Energy) at the University of Houston in 2014. He is currently engaged in Postdoctoral Research into the Reciprocal System of Physics – a way to inculcate Goethean thought into modern physics – in Salt Lake City, USA.

His work spans several subjects and is mainly focused on their connection to spiritual science. Some samples of his work include:

  • Projective geometry and its significance in architecture

  • Technology and the laws of thought (on computers – published in the Waldorf Research Bulletin)

  • What is India? (On the Threefold nature of the Indian subcontinent, published online)

  • Living nature of Liberty (a study of ideas behind Libertarianism)

  • Several papers on physics with regard to Goethean science, foundations of astronomy, calculus, and the Reciprocal System of physics theory. (available online)

Gopi's work will be partnered by Melbourne hipster scientists, Future Crunch, exploring the ‘good news’ about future and technology.
