Culture Fracturing from Information Filters

We can imagine that progress in human information-processing will face some usual social difficulties. Your angry “Klingon” relatives may find unexpected allies among “proboscically enhanced” (aka long-nosed) people protesting against using their alternative standard of beauty as a negative stereotype. The girl next door may be wary that your “re-clothing” filters leave her in Eve’s dress. Parents could be suspicious that their clean-looking kids appear to each other as tattooed skinheads or bloodthirsty demons, or replace their obscenity masks with the popular “Beavis and Butthead” obscenity-enhancement filter. Extreme naturalists will demand that the radiant icons of the Microsoft logo and Coca-Cola bottle gracefully crossing their sky should be replaced by sentimental images of the sun and the moon that once occupied their place. Libertarians would lobby their governments for the “freedom of impression” laws, while drug enforcement agencies may declare that the new perception-altering techniques are just a technological successor of simple chemical drugs, and should be prohibited for not providing an approved perception of reality.
