"Provocative insights and controversial views on the future of mankind emerge, as a select group of scientists and artists discuss new approaches towards the formation of bio-social memory." Some such advertisement is going to be attached to the current Ars Electronica project. I will not be able to feign ignorance when I finally see it in print. So let me try to make sense of this interdisciplinary, open dialogue with the verdict not yet in. I will pick three distinctively different approaches to information processing along the vector of time. Meaningful dialogue presupposes initial well-defined inputs from the participants. After attempting to figure out how some of these might look [albeit from the position of an interested layman] a general question will be asked. What, if anything, do those approaches have in common?
