Center for the Study of Digital Life

The Center for the Study of Digital Life (CSDL) is a strategic research group dedicated to understanding the effects of digital technologies on individuals, cultures and geo-political Spheres.  CSDL believes that we are already in new paradigm, driven by Digital technology.  This new psycho-technological environment generates both a new sensibility and new institutions, as well as new sciences.  Our “Inner Senses” have already shifted from behaviors and attitudes oriented to Fantasy to ones that emphasize Memory -- as our psyches mimic the internal structures of this new technology.  With the previous “globalism” now replaced by Three Spheres: East, West and Digital, the dangers of conflict have increased substantially.   Humanity is at a significant cross-roads and we will need to work collectively to confront  these new challenges.
