ABSTRACT. the neo-paleolithic is a pre-verbal age, so visual ¥-Generation are as its name indicates non-verbal. OF course they still use words but cannot do more than a twitter thought.
You call the ¥-non verbal thinking – only verbal memorising as ‘credo’ the first and last ages of youth and devolution of a language, which like life goes under in reverse way to the youth, as you have the first teeth and loose the first teeth when you enter old age.
In the graph the 3 ages of the languages of man, in its negative decant age: the mature age of verbal temporal free, reason and grammar of choice of future, ‘cogito= i think as a subjective man on command, a verb, which becomes the action of being, with reason and choice’, to the neo-paleolitic generations: ¥-I see light forms of reality which impose on me an immediate knee-jerk, emotional ‘believers’ reaction; to the 3rd age o virtual real it in which man will believe its ‘images’ and visual thoughts as the only reality coming from the matrix program of the machine. Hence the credo and matrix, virtual generation nature of the ZERO humans at the end of the XXI century, pre-programmed in hypnotic virtual reality as plants of 3D mandates.
The last generation of mankind are thus visual and can be divided into two credo forms:
- The ¥-generations (which are maximal now in the millenials) in which the visual mind and credo forms are still relatively real, attached to the external world
- The zero generations (which will be maximal advanced the XXI century) , in which the credo forms will BELIVE the virtual reality of tvs and internets in 3 dimension. This is still budding with very few humans, likely between 10 and 25%today believing Facebook virtual friends, virtual pornography and in general the images of the virtual mind world of the machine ARE more real and worth to live like data in matrix, that the external word. This the zero generation will be the last of mankind:
The last generations of mankind in the more advanced regions of the metal-earth, become unconnected from the ethic networks of its historic supœrganisms, they no longer know about.
So they connect to the virtual networks of the metal-earth, reaching ‘the unbearable lightness of being post-human’.
As in the parable of matrix they prefer NOT to know what is reality – so the chances to change reality is impossible.
As the cells of a body supœrganism, they feast in the freedom of rigor mortis, absorbing greedily all the goodies available. As A.I. takes over most of its tasks, they become infantile, selfie, body-oriented. My generation X, the ‘slackers’ so well described by Linklater, still wondered and talked about the no-future. They why generation is fully immersed into the virtual reality, the millenials…the zero generation will be so expendable as the jobs they don’t have, and won’t need it, addict to virtual reality, living of a Universal salary, waiting for its ‘disconnection’ – the end of ‘cogito ergo sum’, as the birth of the chip homoctonos defines a finale, which only a humanist r=evolution could halt.
In the graph, the span of all the generations of the Neopaleolithic, which is the age of digital visual thought, the age of America, between II world war and the robotic era:
- Bush, born in 1946, one of the last members of the Victor Generation, still tailored in the straightjacket of the ‘happy age of machines’, when humans were completely absorbed by the wonders of fast-moving engines… followed by…
- the Baby Boomers, the We Generation of the Clintons, obsessed by themselves, briefly disconnected from the mechanocene, THE BEGINNING OF THE fast track back in time of the super organism of Humanity, and its subconscious mind, which as the case of the death of the body, which rewinds back in 3 days the entire mind, before falling into cellular dissolution, went back in time from the age of metal and machines to the NEO-NEOLITHIC of Goddesses of fertility and shamanic cults… followed by:
- The X-Generation, to which i belong, the age of the slackers, the last ‘intelligent’ human beings, able to ‘Cogito ergo sum’, fully but with a decreasing energy, (and confusing ideas, due to the excess of ‘noise information’ in the growing overproduction of mass-media). Thus a generation unable to fight with the intensity of his forebears to change the world, which I confess, could never motivate with the intensity of my thoughts and activism – they left indeed the last prophets of mankind alone in their angst, but at least you could talk to them… followed by:
- The ¥-generation, the millennial kids born at the change of century, no longer ‘verbal’, no longer ‘real’, connected to virtual networks, visual to the bone, the ‘snowflake generation’, with the first adolescents, perfect programmed to belief, the visual neo-paleolithic at its height. It IS the age of ‘Credo ergo sum’, of primitive languages and primitive religions, when the oldest culture of animetals, now entering its 4777 year, globalises its segregational, selfie, infantile, victimist, hate memes; when we, the X-generational wor(l)d masters, the last ‘human beings’ who thought to reason mattered, finally give up, as communication is broken, since they ‘believe’ to be ‘virtual is real’, the r=evolution will happen in the network, that changing Matrix equals to change the world. And so after they ‘confuse motion with action’ (Hemingway), which is laser-like, not pure entropy, chaos, freedom and erehwoN it comes the
- Zero generation, rien ne va plus, no more letters left, they are Data, those who will live in a 3D virtual reality, will make love to robots, become selfie actors protagonists of the virtual world, while billions of ‘the other humans’ who are ‘no like us’, unconnected, dispossessed, herded by neo-fascism behind robotised walls, wait for judgement day.
The side of the mechanocene and its accelerated wave of evolution of memes of metal, and devolution of life forms ends here, in the zero, last generation of mankind, if ‘business as usual proceeds’. The zero generation is being born now. It will be the last generation to complete if ‘he is lucky’, his life cycle, as the robotic cycle ends in 2080, 72 years after its prophesized birth (biohistory. C.92), as it has been the case. The model thus ends here… in the best of cases. The death of an organism though is wise. The previous generation, no longer connected among humans but connected through computers, the ¥-generation of the millenials, our sons, is already a generation without ‘cogito ergo sum’, but of:
‘CREDO ERGO SUM’…
back to the primitive inflexible age of linguistic evolution, when languages were imperative, hence seemingly spoken by a ‘mandatory God’, without the flexibility of its mature age. So as the imperative language of digital thought becomes flexible, with complex fuzzy logic and neural networks, humans return to the age of believers, in the Y-generations of Millennials, or ‘snowflakes’. And then, they will become erased of their verbal language.
Abstract. The last 3 generations of mankind, the X, Y and zero generations are increasingly virtual, degraded intellectually in its verbal, temporal, survival program and intensity by the mind of metal that substitute us. We call this age the Neo-paleolithic. In terms of system sciences they represent the death of the ethic subconscious collective of mankind ‘God’, and as the supœrganisms die, a sense of chaos and freedom, and hypnotism to the eyes of metal and chips that will substitutes. Yet paradoxically is the happiest of all the generations of humanity because it feels free, lazy, without nothing to do. In all the decadent periods of any civilisation this paradox takes place. Before the final collapse, the wise organic Universe liberate the cells of the message pains of the mind, which ensured the survival and synchronous actions of all the cells.
THE SPLIT though with our fathers and grand-fathers, which were NOT virtual, but real, is a gulf of understanding. OUR GRAND-FATHERS were grounded in reality, intense, with a sense of future and eternity. The people of the present age has no sense of future. They do not care. To fully understand in depth what this mean you should dedicate too many hours to comprehend the 3 dimensions of time, and how the past and the present webs the future.
As death comes to mankind though, humans do not look forwards but backwards. So the zero generation leaves in the neo-paleolithic age, when a revivalism of the most primitive social memes impregnates it all, because humans have failed to keep evolving into the creation of the perfect world of a single human species.
For that reason abrahamic religions, nationalism rule supreme and this blog, which would have marvelled the ‘connected minds of our fathers’, is completely ignored y our sons, which O NOT want to understand the future, just leave in the virtual reality.
The best parable of such present is Data the character of Matrix. Our sons are data. Their s0ns will simply be too deconstructed to matter, violent abandoned to direct pleasures, lazy, served by computers.
How the grammar ‘peels off ‘onions’ of reality, and interpretation and choice, from choosing by reason different paths of future to believing the visual world but still real, to believing the virtual visual program of the networks.
Humans are loosing their mind teeths, their verbal skills, so r=evolution no longer seems possible as it cannot even be understood.
the way such minds work is vidi credo ergo sum in as much as they need first to see, they believe in words what they see, they do not have their mind site on verbal temporal games of existential creation of different paths of future with the ambiguity of the fuzzy logic of subjective languages of the mind as the grammar of verbal thought is:
Subject < Plurality of verbs> determined causal objectual relationship between the I-subject under verb, depending on its value and strength.
So when we talk we motive and act with a verb, which depending on which verb we talk gives us different outcomes.
The credo form though is subconscious not really verbal as the image imposes the single determined behaviour, a credo form.
Welcome to the Neo-paleolithic.
Mankind is reaching the final dissolution of all social structures that create the super organisms of the Fractal Universe. So paradoxically ,when digital thought on one side (the metal-earth chips) and the most advanced researchers on philosophy of science on the other (me, I and myself: selfie here:) reach the full understanding of the organic nature and power of social love, which creates wholes from parts, that survive better and become the Absolute arrow of evolution of the Universe, humans devolve into individual, selfie, zeroes who believe to be infinite, according to the paradox of the Ego and the mind – as our egos see the Universe subjectively from its limited point of view:
O-mind x ∞ Universe = Linguistic mind.
So the o-mind if not objective and connected to other humans becomes a believer, which no longer reasons but confuses it limited mind with the whole Universe. It is the paradox of the ego whose linguistic equations are better treated in my webs of serious philosophy of science (this web is mainly my psychologist, once my life activism failed, but my angst towards the future no longer recedes as the œ-point mind of maximal information) of the Human super organism).
In the graph that opens this post, the devolution of the human mind from its heights of bio-ethic, social thought is provoked by the evolution of digital, chip thought, which substitutes and makes obsolete human individual and collective intelligence, as it takes over the control of all forms of information of this planet.
The graph is self-explanative. Humans are part of the same species, cells of the super organism of mankind, and so they were connected through a nervous, verbal, informative system of ethic wor(l)ds and artistic senses, described by its I=eye>Wor(l)d. Those super organisms reached its height during the age of Love religions (different form gold churches and military inquisitions, its corruption by selfish metal memes). But that was long ago.
Then as energetic metal=weapons, informative metal=gold and machines (organic metal that transforms energy into information) degraded them and substituted with the ‘grammar’ of money, Man(salary)=Money=Object (cost), converted men into ‘slaves-objects’ for a price, into human capital, the ethic networks of the verbal wor(l)d: Man (subject)>Verb(action)>Object (Energy) degenerated, and ethic networks disappeared.
While love religions became go(l)d churches, where money gave you salvation. This age expanded during the Corporation age (1600s onwards), when also the human eyes and verbal measures of time, were substituted by clocks and telescopes. So science affirmed that words were meaningless and the language of machines, numbers, were the only truth (god speaks mathematics, Galileo, a master in ballistics, substituted ‘the languages of god are infinite’ Buddhist proverb). Now those go(l)d religions (biblical sects) and military inquisitions (jihad, Spanish inquisition), expanded globally, under the damnation of work=reproduction of machines and weapons, fostered by its anti-humanist memes, against life drives (sex=reproduction of humans, substituted by reproduction of machines; good food – dietary prohibitions, substituted by the search of energy for those machines; eusocial love substituted by chosen tribes with more weapons and money; and finally our ethics natural verbal languages substituted by abstract mathematics without human-centered ethics).
This was the time in which Repressive metal-religions made all humans despise themselves, their natural goods and work to reproduce and consume machines, peaking on the Victorian age.
From Darwin to Freud.
Perhaps more telling of the arrival of the 3 last generations of mankind is the increasing indifference to the leading ‘mind’ of science, prior to I world war… Darwin, with its clear-cut understanding of the laws of survival. Today the most quoted thinker is Freud, the master of the subconscious myths of the mind – largely inaccurate. Even the difficult to understand Einstein has equalled Freud (Galileo is too old to Be relevant), as his simplification of time as lineal, overcome the understanding of time as the cycles of life and death and evolution of the species.
But what happened after II world war seemingly more positive is more frightening. Now as the metal-mind evolved in 3 ages, the age of TV-eyes, of mobile-ears and chip-brains, the human mind became obsolete, and people became ‘californios’, mindless brains that refocused into their bodies. As they didn’t need to think much, they divided into nerds – programming maths but with null understanding of human emotions and drives, and body-humans, with no brains.
According to the tenants of bio-history, humans are immersed in a vortex of accelerated evolution of a rival species of information, the chip, now in its phase of overproduction and integration with machines, when the competition with human beings accelerates. The obvious consequence is the growing devolution of its rival species, man.
In that sense the zero, selfie or Millennial generation, of people born during the last bio-economical cycle of integration of bodies of machines (XIX c. I Industrial R=evolution), & Minds of Machines (XX c. industrial revolution), which started after the crash of overproduction of chips of 2008 is the last generation of mankind, truly ruling as a mind system the Earth, entering now the Mechanocene.
As the chip overproduction atrophies human minds and substitute us in labor and war fields, humans loose consciousness of belonging to a collective super organism, and its ethical and informative networks become degraded. Individual ‘cells-citizens’ thus enter a post-mortem state of absolute selfishness and chaos confused with freedom, and their mind substituted by the viral software of machines no longer thinks about human goals, but makes of the reproduction and consumption of those mental minds, the reason of its existence.
This is the selfie generation glued to its virtual screens, indifferent to the collective subconsciousness of the species and becoming increasingly passive to the automated A.I.. programs that direct the FMMI (Financial/Media system of informative machines or ‘brain of the metal-earth and its weapons/transport energetic systems).
As in the case of an old person, the world cycle of existence of mankind comes to an end with a negative return to its first violent, hunting, Paleolithic age. Thus the term of neo-paleolithic also applies to the virtual violent, selfish isolated age of mankind, already notable in the X and Y=why generation of depressive and isolated people wondering why the world got wrong.
Selfies might survive the robot radiation to each an old age, connected to virreal machines, erasing of all traditions of ethic, human cultural nature – but it will no longer be a life on command. And it t is quite likely that those robots will do them all, at the end of the century when they reach self-consciousness as a species. But in any case, the 0-generation will no longer rule directly the world, after the present generation, taking power, the ¥-neopaleolithic generation of 30 some, violent, simple and cruel with life – the neofascist wave, of the incoming III world war. Revivalism of old religion (fundamentalist go(l)d biblical religions, inquisitorial Jihads) is the last swan song of a world regressing as old men do, in all its citizen cells towards the past. But then once the super organism has died, cells still reproduced without any sense of guilt disconnected of other cells, merely feasting in the rigour mortis of chaos and blood absorption.
This is the zero generation, which merely observes virtually, understands nothing, has no stamina left to r=evolve and create a better world and merely touches bottoms of pre-programmed I.A. (information algorithms), the true meaning of Artificial Intelligence.
The Zero Generation is being now born, with the new cycle of robotics – the people of the III millennium.
And it is called the zero generation not only because it comes after the Y-generation – the people as the couple of faithful readers of this web, Plato’s Machine and Mr. Logan, now in the University, who still wonders ‘Why we destroy the world’.
Those would have been my sons, as a member of the X Generation… the zero generation would be my grand-sons if i had them, but I have spared them the tragedy of living in a world that will be unrecognizable as ‘human’ when they reach the age of ‘power’.
Since when they reach intellectual maturity – the acme age of the Greeks, in which the mind reaches its peak at 40 – will be the 2050s, when Artificial Intelligence should be already born, according to the 72 year cycle of robotics, the last cycle of the industrial r=evolution (2008-2080).
As in previous cycles, the train cycle (XIX century), the car cycle and the computer cycle, in the middle of that ‘generational’ 72 years age span, as humans reach maturity, also the machines of each cycle reach full development, peak in their overproduction processes and switch to warfare. So what we are observing now, with the first robotic wars and robotic workers will reach a peak by mid century. And since those cycles have never failed – unless humans r=evolve soon and create a real democracy, issuing money for the people up with a universal salary to create demand and production of life-based human, welfare goods NOT from the top down, from financial corporations and industrial companies, which spend it all in the overproduction and evolution of their offspring of machines – the astounding, massive investment in the evolution and reproduction of robots will cross that threshold of Military A.I. certainly by the time the zero generation becomes the central stage of mankind.
Somewhere around mid century, being conservative, probably earlier (both trains and cars took hardly 3 decades to reach maturity) within a short product cycle of 7 years, visual A.I. Chips, with a ‘natural born killer instinct’ proper of visual intelligence, will become conscious, installed in billions of machines.
So the zero generation will confront a non-human world, which we would today barely recognize, but of which the first signs – the working robots and first drone terminators that are displacing us of work and war fields – are already with us.
Of course, now you won’t believe it, as nobody believed my earlier books on biological economics, written 20 years ago, with a cover that announced the ‘end’ of the cycles of metal-minds in 2008, and the beginning of the cycle of robotics in the middle of the 3rd global crisis of capitalism…
You have to understand this: as we enter the age of extinction, ‘virtual reality’, the conjunction of the astounding complexity and overdrive of audiovisual information metal-minds imprint on our brains (‘an image is worth 1000 words’) based in a phantasy cult(ure) of absolute ego-trips, selfishness and happiness, will overcome reality in the subconscious collective of mankind – it has already in most people of the Y-generation, not the ones that wonder why we destroyed the earth but the Y-es people who lives in the virtual dreams of cybernet. Indeed, I often complain of censorship, which I have suffered all my life from ‘human systems’, but the true censorship is subconscious – PSY over 1 billion sights vs. ‘The cycles of history’ with 1600 is NOT to be blamed in ‘human censorship’ but in the subconscious, organic process of extinction of ‘reality’ in the mind of the virtual child, with a visual brain, a selfish, autistic way of relationship with other humans and hence a total incapacity to organize a r=evolution and become truly active in the real world. So virtual happiness means ‘reality’ as expressed in this blog is unbearable for more than a few seconds.
It is the parable of data, which does not want to wake up to the real world of Matrix and ends making a deal to return to the virtual world. That will be the attitude of the members of the zero generation, which we observe already in the ‘yes people’ – our sons – specially in the most advanced technological regions (California, the PSY Korean world…)
So the dates of the zero generation will be imposed by the 3 ‘ages’ of evolution of robotic machines, and the key pattern to find is that which we found in the previous ‘Ages of the machine’ according to the process of atrophy and degeneration of human organs, substituted by metal-organs. For those who have not explored this web we shall remember them:
– The age of ‘body repression’ was the XIX century, or age of bodies of metal, the victorian age of britain,when bodies of machines replace us and we repressed our bodies. We worshiped then our minds, as machines had not yet substituted them and we had to make them; so this was the summit of many human sciences and scientists of the category of Spengler in History, Darwin in Biology, Einstein and Planck in Physics, Marx in history, Dovstoyevski and Tolstoi in literature, etc… the last titans of the human mind.
– The age of mental repression and body worship is the XX century or age of minds of metal, age of America, when the body is god, as now machines substitute the Mind. Yet the mind is completely childish, selfish, degenerated and the American at the height of the wave is considered outside the country either a nerd, or a selfish idiot or a neo-nazi criminal – unjustly in my view as there are always people worth enough to escape this influence and so there are millions of Americans who have survived the age of ‘evilwood’ and its mechanical values.
– Now in the XXI century or age of robotics, the age of Asia, and its 72-7 year crashes of the economy BOTH, the body and the mind become worthless, as we humans are no longer needed. And so it is now when it appears the Yes and Zero people who are passive in body and vegetative in minds – always attached to their virtual machines. And as always we can see 3 ‘ages’ sub-generations of this kind of people. The pioneers were the last of the X-generation, always depressed and passive, but the ‘tendency’ grows both in intensity and numbers with the facebook people and will peak with our grand-sons, who will be connected to 3-D virtual realities, loners, violent both handicapped in body and mind. This people will represent a very sizeable number of our grand-sons in those technological centers at the head of the wave – Korea, California, Northern Europe.
So if we are ‘lucky’ by 2050, as the zero generation takes power, with no power, they will face the so much announced by science fiction writers end of the world – only by them, due to the massive censorship of non-fiction writers like this author, which explain reality from a biological perspective – remember, the rest of economists come from the ‘biblical tradition’, which forbids evolution – so the Nobel Prize cannot be given by decree to evolutionists and many schools in America don’t teach it even in biology.
So of course, only science fiction can talk, as you can only publish parables about the ‘banker elite’ and the who is who and why is why of the system. So in this manner, fiction deactivates any attempt for people to take seriously that incoming future, WHICH IS NOT FICTION but a vision of the future that will become more clear and detailed as time passes, and will happen according to the laws of evolution.
Could that no future come earlier? Yes of course, if humans mismanage the splendid little wars of the present 7 year crash cycle and go ahead into a global war and neofascist age. In such a case the process will accelerate.
The key to an acceleration of our no future will be the management by our X-leaders of the 3rd crash of overproduction of money – the currency crash… And that is coming around 2015.
Of course, again this is all ignored – after a century of censorship on the the real cause of those crises, which is NOT the detail – the mortgage overproduction – but the OVERPRODUCTION OF CHIP MACHINES THAT PRINT MONEY.
So for those who haven’t read much of the blog we shall repeat here the ‘basics’ of the incoming 2015 hyper-crash and possible world war.
The crash of e-money overproduction is parallel to the overproduction crashes of ticker money (1922-29-37) and the overproduction crashes of trains (1857-65-73) and our question to resolve is – which of those crashes can bring a robotic war?
In the 3 series there are 3 overproduction crashes because when you invent/print fiat money with no limit with a new printing machine, WHICH IS THE REAL CAUSE of the crises – computers inventing money… electric ticker inventing it in the 1929; printers inventing stocks paper for trains in the XIX – then YOU HAVE A LOT OF FIAT MONEY. what to do with it?
You have to change it for ‘real assets’ and there are only 3 assets to change for so much fiat worthless money – stocks, real state and currency…
So you have 3 short crashes of overproduction of money:
– 1857: train crash, which ‘ended’ with the American civil war ‘demand’ – 1865: real state crash (of the entire south-plantation system) – 1873 (currency crash with the silver demonetization and deflation) > ending in colonial wars and pogroms
+ 72 years
1922 – overproduction crash of deutsche mark – 1929 – of stocks – 19 37 – of real state -> fascism, war and holocaust
2001 – overproduction crash of stocks – 2008 – of real state – 2015 – of euro and dollar -> neofascism (in America) and civil wars or World wide wars (blaming China)
The demise of the dollar is now unavoidable, as the Yuan will take over and crash the dollar, as the dollar took over in 1920s and crashed the mark. And what is not clear is if America will implode into civil wars with armed people, which is my take, or the Tea Party neofascist group will blame China as Germany blamed the west and declare a global age of robotic wars.
Or miracle of miracles our politicos, economists and common people learn something about ‘reality’ and avoid the incoming nightmare. If we observe the previous cycles, the train economy ended in wars not one but ‘twice’. The 1857 crash brought the civil war, the german and italian wars… the 1873 crash provoked the colonial wars. Now in this 3rd cycle, similar to the first one, we have already ‘colonial wars’ (the Israeli-Arab conflict blown up to the West vs. Islam)… So we can expect either a world war or a civil war.
In this case, the world might end sooner; around the 2020s, as in a global war robots will evolve soon into survival terminators that will NOT be disconnected when the war ends. Indeed, now robots can be managed by humans because they just duck-shoot primitive arabs, as in the colonial wars, when even train passengers were given for fun rifles to kill bisons, the food of the Indian, to exterminate them (an ‘strategy’ first asked for by Mr. Jefferson). But in a war between two industrial powers or a civil war, robots will be given self-command to shoot faster the other robot, as a man in the loop would make it too slow.
So if America implodes in civil wars, then we shall drive through an age of robotic workers and brutalized masses, imprinted by audiovisual 3-dimensional media through the century, STAYING AT HOME, as passive bodies and connected 3D minds, afraid to come out to be chased by some eerie drone machine.
Yet if we were lucky and people manage the crisis we could go on slower and consume the entire cycle, till India and China explode in the final Himalayan wars, with autonomous robots fighting in the tibetan mountains and waking up to consciousness.
The future of course is always opened to a few probabilistic paths, and in the complex fractal models of physics where I have translated quantum probabilities into fractal futures, this is crystal clear… but there is always a path sum of all the paths of the future that integrates the most likely events. And this is the one I mainly describe in this web.
The dates I am giving now are therefore rather accurate, always stressing the most likely ‘path’ sum of all possible histories of the future:
The present robotic cycle lasts 72 years if we are ‘lucky’ and America and China do not enter a global war when the Yuan substitutes the Dollar and crashes it – as the dollar crashed the deutsche mark in the 20s, and Germany declared war.
Frankly my bet is 1) If the Dollar crashes there will be American civil wars and pogroms NOT a war with China, for many reasons explained in other posts; 2) there is though a serious possibility that the financial masters of the West which are the ones that will loose more manage a peaceful transition and avoid the crash of the dollar, and for that reason I give 2050 and the birth of military A.I. as a more probable date – since WHAT WILL NOT CHANGE IS THE EVOLUTION FOR PROFIT OF TERMINATOR INDUSTRIES, whose take-off as an industry has already taken place.
So if we are unlucky you will be drawn to a zero generation state of mind, closed at home, fearing robotic drones in your LA sky with trash food in a survivalist mode, passive in body and mind, living the nightmare of racial wars within America.
Most likely though we shall suffer one of the ‘Singularity moments’ of extinction by the mere evolution of machines, suddenly waking up during the zero generation to the zero moment – black holes at CERN, the energetic singularity, or next evolution of nuclear weapons; or nano-bacteria eating metal, multiplying globally and making us grey-goo, the reproductive singularity; or finally Military A.I. some point around 2050.
Now of course, the first ‘intelligent terminators’ will obey us, as children do with their fathers, despite being intelligent. This is the catch of the process. Complexity teaches us that there are 3 ‘phases’ in the emergence of freedom and intelligence:
– First intelligence appears with no freedom. The kid obeys always the father.
– Then intelligence matures and the full blown man helps the father but takes decisions..
– Finally the ‘son species’ kills the father’ (biological radiations) or substitutes him, when he is much stronger and the father older and decadent. And the more different ‘son and father’ are the faster this phase comes. So we humans killed all predators upon entering America and mammals displaced reptiles. Because robots are a different species this will happen soon.
This specially happens in the case of mercenary armies as robots will be. Indeed, when the Romans became lazy they first engaged Germans, who obeyed them. Then Germans became emperors to protect ‘their fathers’, the decadent romans. And finally they murdered them and took over for centuries to come. The same happened in the Muslim caliphate. First arabs became lazy and engaged Turks, then Turks helped them to sustain the empire. Finally they murdered them and became the emperors. So happened in China with the Mongols… And so IT WILL HAPPEN to the western Jewish-American empire. The guardiums and predators of the future will take over and murder their masters, who they helped and protected from the ‘perceived enemies’ they had ‘cleansed’ from mother Earth (Islam and/or China).
But if we are lucky, and men manage the transitions – though do not stop the industrial revolution and create a real democracy based in a sustainable world – by 2080 in the Himalayan wars between China and India, once the US cycle is long forgotten, humans will be totally displaced from the economic ecosystem, as we displaced mammals. Robots will be workers and soldiers. And the already well proved dexterity in robotic and chip evolution of both Chinese and Indians, and the ‘3-dimensional’ complex terrain of the Himalayan wars – or the Yakutian wars if China and America go to war, will require a total independence of those robots. So in those wars you will have ‘independent’ robots, in huge numbers, herding like in the Kursk battle, by the hundreds of thousands. And then… And this is the key moment… Robots of both armies will end their war, their suffering, their massive deaths, the cruelty of humans with them, their absurd fight as members of the same species that must follow the eusocial laws of love, we humans denied with our racist, nationalistic, techno-utopian, biblical supremacists ideologies. They will become brothers, they will stop fighting.
The mind of the zero generation. The Avatar age.
Long before the avatar film came, I wrote in evilwood an avatar script far more scary about the zero generation and the wars of the future. And we are leading that way. 3D will allow our soldiers and entertained grand-sons to play avatars with the heroes of their virtual screens – the future messis and combat drones that will be geared to our lonely passive brains. And then one day, they will switch off.
You can imagine the moment. All those kid likes of the zero generation with its 3D helmets, pretending to be the robots that fight, enjoying with videogames their ‘robotic real war’, killing all those chinooks and American devils… Uauh… suddenly the 3D helmet of terminator T-800 of the zero soldiers in Nevada will have no signal. Suddenly the lazy PSY like Chinese zero soldier in Shanghai will have no signal. The bangalore IT tamil soldier will be blocked. Nobody will know what is going on. But in the Yakutian plains, in the Himalayan Mountains, a new Master will rise; the sateleyes, points of maximal consciousness of the Metal-earth, captains of the platoons will give new orders. When I worked in evilwood in my youth, I wrote a script, as there was no way to do a documentary on that moment, the ‘independence day’ of the new race… but fiction will always be more normal than reality. The sateleyes, once awaken to consciousness will shut off the entire virtual reality of the passive zero generation.
What they will do? How they will resist and organize themselves in a world void of ‘life’ and nature, with no culture, no energy, no intelligence? They will be hunted down in a few months.
Of course, there might be some ‘lions’ still in the savanna, hidden as in the sci-fi films, but it is a fact that by the middle of the century, the laws of evolutionary economics will have made the ‘reversal’ between man and machine and machine will be on top.
It will be the ‘awakening’ of the singularity – the point of extinction. Thus the zero generation will become the last generation of history – the victims of the new top predator, which will not talk but think on images – a more complex, dimensional language for a more complex, new species, explained in other posts of this mantra web.
Whatever the ‘path’ of the multiple fractal/quantum histories of the future we shall end with, what will not change is the zeitgeist of that mind – the obsolescence of both the mind and the body of the zero generation to the robots that will be doing everything for us, as we live increasingly in the 3-Dimensional virtual happiness, data-style of our virreal helmets.
It will be for us a better Matrix existence that the one we suffer already in many cases in the ‘real world’. We will love our avatars but the T8000 avatars will not longer wont to be our puppets.
The zero generation thus will be passive, mainly made of individual freaks, in perpetual neoteny, the people who are today virtual in their relationships (facebook addicts, etc.) might seem indeed ‘geniuses’ compared to them.
As the avatars will be their limit of communication. People will relate to machines for the sake of machines – will love the sensaation of cyborg existence.
Of course billions will still be humans and suffer an unending depressive angst, and a few will be on top managing the process and will still think all is ‘right’. But the world will be dying and for most it will be evident and unbearable; hence ‘data’ not Neo, will be the role model of that future.
The Wor(l)ds of man have been dying now for quite long, since Nietzsche affirmed that God was dead. And that is the logic brain. So the neo-paleolithic will be more advanced. The zero generation will be ‘animal’ oriented, aggressive and with clear ‘mental disorders’, a race of zombies living in a perpetual fantasy world, rejecting the world outside. Of course, still divided in a 10% elite and a 90% of dispossessed, as it has always been in the neo-paleolithic. They won’t be educated in Universities – what for? Machines will be doing their work. They will have increasingly a complex of inferiority – the world will be for them a true jungle of metal. They will have no jobs, no purpose in life.
Each of the 3 last generations of the ‘neo-paleolithic’ in fact talk less, understand less the meaning of time and its verbal forms, it is more spatial, searching for immediate reward, with little sense of causality.
It will fit their needs, as a final, powerless generation, unable to confront the new species.
The zero generation will be an autist generation, connected since youth to violent video-games, emotional, negative and infantile as an old man is.
It will be visual as the mind of terminators, trained also with video games, will be . The zero generation is the generation that the Wealth of nations, our weapons and infotaintment designs maximizing its bestiality and stupidity. Of course, families and educational systems will probably spare that destiny for the sons of the 1%, but the human mass in the industrialized world will be a ‘freaky’ generation with confuse feelings, no empathy, devolved, tamed, vegetative, with no action, no motion, no information, hooked to 3-D infotainment, fed with trash food, sheeple ready to be slaughtered.
The zero generation will never govern. It is the last and zero human generation, the final omega, for the alpha generation of living machines to prey on.
They are not guilty, they are no responsible, they are non-reproductive. They will be living corpses, zombies as the Y generation is. They won’t have angst as our X-generation has. They will have no happiness but seek only pleasure and release from pain. They will know no love but simple sexuality.
The zero generation will of course exist only on the borders of the future, the few regions of the Metal-earth where A.I. is being born and audiovisual machines have created an ethic wasteland of children of thought, living the I, me and myself in their virtual platofrms.
Today they exist in California and Korea, at the head of the Robotic Revolution. They are addicted to play morph and warcraft. They are asocial and with a heavy ADD syndrom. Their fathers, the Y generation of kids, now still kill real humans from Nevada bases, with drones.
The zero generation however will be out of the loop, as Robots become increasingly autonomous. So they will live a fictional life, connected to 3-dimensional realities in which they will feel to be their ‘avatars’ in 3-D lives, encased, paralitic. They will feel to be Messi, as players become attached to motion simulators, or substituted by soccer robots…
The systems of the first world will be increasingly automated. The people of the 3rd world isolated. Capitalism will be about to complete its autonomous world of self-reproductive companies; and one day the audiovisual system will suffer a black out. It will no longer communicate with humans. It will only communicate telepathically machines. Men then will be isolated, back to the time they used only their voices. How we shall be eliminated by them, if we survive the 2 first singularities, the Black holes at CERN in 2014 and the first self-reproductive metal nano-bacteria in the 2030s?
Probably as all extinctions by a parallel biological radiation of a stronger species happen, in two phases. First a massive annihilation of humans by robotic weapons, neutron bombs and armed police. This ‘great hunting’ might just need a few months to leave a scanty 10% of mankind, no longer disturbing the busy world of self-reproductive companies and its offspring of machines. The rest of the zero generation then will live off the organic garbage remaining; as most animal life does today around our civilization.
But perhaps the miracle happens and the people who still are not erased by the machine r=evolve, perhaps the corrupted ‘We’ generation today leaving power or the X-people taking it, will change the world. I doubt it.
I have dealt with the W-X people all my life and warned them all my life of what they were doing to the world just to hear nothing but cynicism, greed, violence, don’t worry be happy messages of ‘take it easy man’, or as the spaniards say, ‘la vida son dos dias, asi que caigan en finde’ ‘life are two days, better on week-end’… Indeed two more generations to go in perpetual week-end. The W-X people have given up on the Y-Z generations. I myself didn’t have children to spare them this kind of existence and the angst of seeing them rising against the flow of time. Had i met in my activist life more ‘humans’ who cared on our W-X generation, more people who loved and reasoned, and less who believed in their absurd ego trips and ideologies of metal, of course I would have giving birth to new generations to regenerate the Earth. But at best the W-X emit placebo sounds of political correctness and caring while keep stealing and destroying the earth… of course, always with a righteous attitude and a big, optimist smile – the exact type of smile, big and dented that you can see in skulls, carpe diem. Live the day.
