A "Field Theory of Mind"

In a previous article, "Examine Better the Anomaly of Earth to Learn of What's Elsewhere" (www.ufodigest.com/news/0907/anomaly.html), I gave an example of what is, most likely, mind extant almost exclusively as a field, a superlative one at that.
If, indeed, this example is that of a field of thought (and data) instead of purely bio-organic synapses of neurons firing and receptors sensing (vastly based on the failed model of electron flow), then we have entered an entirely new world in how we conceive consciousness and, perhaps, even the possibility of sharing sentience with computers.
It is a two-edged sword. It is the brink upon which madness is only one aspect of the devastation inevitable to the pursuit of this technology. For on the way the interface of mind and machine is just one adjunct to the consequence of possessing intention without soul, purpose without moral core.
Mankind upon this planet has already broken with Nature and with the natural course environmental and social concerns should effect on every decision made significantly impacting on generations and on the most important asset any planetary society can have, its children. In the absence of such guidelines and of their enforcement, the technology this paper will discuss is far more than a promise of dire consequences; it is the "darkness at the end of the tunnel"
Without effecting an end to the bleak disparities practiced upon the masses by an elite more and more concentrating its hold globally and obsessed with control of more and more aspects of the individual's life, this technology will, though seeming an enhancement initially, become a dissolution of all social order and the very "chaos" that social engineers have ironically warned about for so long, to install such noxious programs.
You may rightfully be skeptical of this alarming assertion. Surely man has weathered many growing pains to achieve his present level of technology and culture. What could make this any worse than the A-Bomb, the H-Bomb, unstable governments with the resource to produce "weapons of mass destruction"?
