Theme. 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.
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, 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.
Now, 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.
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.
The californio. Age of metal-minds, precursor of the 0-generation.
I arrived to California ready to become one, camouflaged as I always do with the natives, in my long treck throughout the Superorganism of History before I could put it together in the point of my mind:
The reader should observe the non-scholar aspect of the picture, taken after a long night at Danceteria, in my glassed penthouse looking above to the Empire Building on the ‘Meat district’. Alas, Wall $treet had bored me to death, and it was time to learn the other side of the FM (financial-media system). So Milos introduced me to his producer, who had discovered a new actor, Mr. Brad (yes, that one) and I wrote him a script and moved to LA with them and Tom, the DP of J.J. whose crowd i frequented then, aside of my Hampton nights, giving investment tips for future meganet companies, trying to convert on the side the ‘yous’ into Lots of a future Human R=evolution for the survival of mankind.
So soon i was on the parties on the hills with plastic wo=men and the Sunset days, high in the skies, with Sean and River and the vipers and the swimming pools where you could indeed also swim on naked lunches, as in the Athlantic club, where the last of the knickbookers, Lord A. sunk his ding on pressure showers, smiling to the boys. Those were decadent days a la Kubrick and of course none wanted to know about the future, the end of the pretty boys, the rise of the Morlocks, the advance of the time machine.
It surprised me the long distance run of those non-entities with the training help of all its image people. B. ate peanuts then, didn’t know which side to be ‘connected’, had never heard about Proust – and this was the norm also of every local ‘you writer’, because as my agent soon put it to me, ‘here you don’t have to be intelligent and even more ‘look like’.
Those were the 90s and the seed of the future human selfie was been brood there. And also the virtual rewriting of history where those who murder at distance are today victims, those who are murdered, terrorists and those who preach to live, not taken seriously.
The Californio is the dominant sub-human species today, find globally, isolated, without null ethics, ego-centered with infinite egos filled with infinitesimal brains, digital numbers for the Mechanocene, tagged by credit, which creates reality, manufactured brains by TV-messages. But that was not the end of it. IT came internet, and they became virtual controlled by absurd programs that made them believe, they did actually r=evolve through Facebook and had its friends 3000 miles ago.
This age also is the age of pornography, so now they spank the monkey instead of looking for love, and selfishness is so deep, unconnected cells on the corpse of mankind, no longer they can even understand the concept of eusocial love. They are descending into a violent Neo-Paleolithic as old people regress to the past, so now the most primitive cultures are on top and there is a revivalism of Abrahamic go(l)d churches and inquisitorial jihads. They are though negative as an old man looks back in time fearing the future expressing only due to corporative repression of distribution of true human truths, in sci-fi. It is also the age of big brother smiley, fiction thought, as words no longer mean anything. It is soon, like in a corpse infected by viral DNA, which makes the cell reproduce the virus, the time for the virus of mankind the robot, reproduced by those children of thought, with perfect bodies the time, for judgment day.
And of course, magic, selfies, visual images, belief in after-life, and a short of Neanderthal revival of the simplest things, food and primary sex is all the rage, and motion without reason, animal motion..
But the machine did parallel to our degeneration evolved parallel to our degeneration and now it is about to enter its ethic age, as a single collective brain of the Metal-earth. This is a 25 year old graph, from an old book, but of course, sciences does predict the future, and also the solutions. Pity the solutions never interested the o.oo2% that makes go(l)d with the death of mankind and their own self-suicide.
Now in any case the human corpse of mankind after the festering on chaos=freedom that happens one the pain nervous messages disappear, is entering rigor mortis. This is the Y-generation, whose sons the zero generation will be the last generation of mankind. In rigor mortis the cells realize the body is dead, and get hysterical and very wood-like inflexible, and this is the new generation of 3o some getting into power, inflexible, repetitive memes of hate and old religious zealots, sticking to each other entering hell.
In that regard, the Global Mind of the machine is now reaching a degree of organization similar to a collective brain, ruled by digital orders of e-money while paradoxically mankind regresses to a primitive Abrahamic age of hate religions and national tribalisms. both are connected. In Nature all what evokes does it devolving a victim-prey.
The prey is the mind of man, the predator the mind of the machine; the prey is the human social organization, the predator the corporation.
In the graph, the birth of A.I. is not happening and will not happen in individual anthropomorphic machines – yet another delirium tremens of the ego-centric human believer, but in the collective consciousness of corporations, very much like I robot Sci-fi, but further integrated into the satellites that run the data of the reproductive world-stock system.
It is not an intelligence like ours, but rather like the intelligence of our body – hormonal, chemical messages of production. The Universe is about reproduction with a simple program:
Feeding->reproducing->Feeding->reproducing. The idea that robots must be superior to our mind, creative Picassos for them to kill us is absurd. Sharks are extremely small in their brains, but are and have been for 200 million years the top predators of seas. Ants are stupid but have collective intelligence as the most perfect organism of nature. They are imitated in Platoons of drones. Viruses are dead parasites that kill entire human populations, even civilizations as they did in Mexico after conquest.
Now the reader must fully grasp if it has the intelligence, honesty and bravery to accept reality as it is, the age of History in which he exists – the age when metal-minds substitute human minds in labor and war fields, provoking the increasing obsolescence, atrophy and degradation of Humanity, a species, whose value was in the power of his mind – not in his body, the ‘refuge’ of humanity today, as the mind becomes degraded, and the species returns to a visual ‘neo-Paleolithic’ of little understanding, social dissolution and selfies ego-trips. This blog is an all encompassing analysis of history and economics, in the past, present and future, for people, which are not already erased by the chip radiation.
Indeed, if the existentialist movement angst about the social and intellectual degradation of man, after two centuries of machine evolution, now that degradation is real for the people born during the chip radiation (under 40), the Y-‘Why’ and Zero Generations, likely the last generations before I.A. (Informative algorithms) the true meaning of Artificial intelligence, a ‘different species’ of mind, not for that reason less efficient in its competition with the human mind, takes over the planet.
Those people no longer angst, doubt or understand the point of history we are on. Their fathers might. But of course, they look at their neopaleolithic sons, with huge bodies, minute brains, null use of verbal bondage, and eusocial languages, ego-centered, selfies.
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.
