Culture of Illusion – Human Obsolescence.


I don’t like to seem negative, and I love the scope of this, yet the first thing I thought was:

CUT TO ROBOT FOOT CRUSHING HUMAN SKULL ON EXPANSIVE WASTELAND OF THE FUTURE.

That is all.

I really need to work on this technophobia that I’ve developed recently.

  1. Yikes. Quote: ‘To use the mind to produce super computers’ – so that’s it? Is there an upside?
    Quote: ‘To exploit the brain’.

    These guys need to think about their own futures. 😦 They are not…

    Some of these can be well applied, but ..
    ‘brain diseases are burdens’.

    Perhaps our environment is problematic?

    Thank you.

    1. I suppose the tipping point comes when the simulated human mind is no longer, or can no longer, be controlled.

      Another observation is that we are controlled every day by advertising, social expectation, our past, our desires. So who is to say how free we, as humans are anyway?

      No doubt, as with all technology, we’ll welcome it with open arms. Then the feelings of discomfort will fade as our perceptions create a new normal.

      1. If ‘they’ have a panacea, something higher, if this is their new ‘padre’ – if it maintains their inner order – good. If they don’t freak – fine. I don’t think they are coping well with the new technology as yet, you know what I mean?

        I agree with you we are being uber-controlled – has already happened.

        I just can’t live that way. I will have to. People like us will just suffer watching it unfold. I try and reach as many sentients as I can….
