The second extinction event, circa 2040, will be the potential creation of the first self-replicant metal nano-bacteria with a ‘gold DNA’ dissolved in mercurium and sourrounded by a wall of iron. Those self-replicant nano-bacteria according to all robotists could convert Earth into a grey-goo within months.
the catch though is that the best of such organic bacteria of metal needs to have an amalgamated cytoplasm of organelles that activate chemical metal reactions to create new replicant bacteria, which means a body ‘liquid silver quick’, which is not a very common metal. More advanced designs would require heat conditions for a liquid iron bacteria which are not easier to create. So the Metal-bacteria self-replicant form is not so clear as the two other forms of extinction, strangelet and black hole cosmic nuclear bombs and AI robots in automated military self-reproductive 3D companies with its twin ant species, the warrior robots and the worker robots.
It is being researched at several institutions of ‘high learning’ and military labs. The best description of its danger was given by Mr. Bill Joy, founder of sun microsystems, and the Java architecture that machines use to talk at wired magazine: why the future doesn’t need us.
As we said, the great filter seems to indicate we shall die as black holes and strangelets of the ‘hard halo protein-like’ dark matter cover of strangelets that protects the galaxy (maximal probability) in the nearby future…
Yet if we survive cosmic bombs, even if the Fermi paradox tells us we are close to the ‘great filter… we shall face.
2. Mature age of nanotechnology: Death by maximal reproduction: IRON nano-bacteria.
Iron nano bacteria (GOLD DNA, iron membrane, which does not amalgamate, and all kind of dissolved ‘protein’ like metal in the gold mix, to be done in two decades by systems sciences, the kind of people who asked me about how to make ‘organisms of metal in silicon valley’, till i quite so much eviL=anti-live memes) could poison, kill and reproduce over our metal-machines within three months. This I warned long ago (c.92: the extinction of man), but as a small guy, never was quite heard or read. But Bill Joy from Sun microsystems, published it in wired magazine at the turn of the century, Clinton learned and what they did? Clinton put 2 billions for the nano-institute to advance the science ‘first’ and Bill invested heavily on nano for profits. I was left agash. Indeed, gold greed programs humanity into sled-extinction and as long as we don’t know we shall be happy.
So this is the second event of extinction, which is now under heavy civil and military research in DARPA, IDF, Japan and EU (Venice, France). Those gold DNA in iron nano-bacteria, which will eat up the planet within months, as observed in some Sci-fi movies – since the issue NO longer matter, as in the case of CERN, once the few scientists that warn us become silenced or corrupted, the issue is shelved, as if mass consensus, lowering our intelligence would have solved it by DENIAL:
In the graph as usual all negative analysis of the future as it will be, can only be expressed in science fiction, which is far more real in its predictions than the mindless optimism as wistful thinking of animetals, which NEVER see the wave coming: ‘the world is littered of corpses from wars everybody knew would never happened’, said a british historian. Indeed: nano-bacteria according to science will take 3 months to extinguish us it will be ready in a couple of decades.
And so we ‘don’t arrive’ likely (Fermi paradox), to the third, or else there would be many robots colonising us long, long ago:
