Planetary evolution: From Gaia to Metal-earth
In the graph, the ‘evolution of the Earth in 3 ages’, defined by the ‘wave-equation of history’, which this blog studies with the laws of systems sciences and information theory:
Past (gaia-life earth) < History (Mankind) > Mechanocene (Metalife).
The 3 ages are mimicked by the transition of species, which will bring a III Earth of metalife, which poisons our atmosphere (pollution, global warming), and accelerates the global process, fuelled by company-mothers of machines, whose only objective is to evolve re=produce and terraform the planet to the image and likeness of its offsprings of machines, with the willingly acceptance of ‘enzyman’, a deluded Homo Faber, which has substituted homo Sapiens, and understands nothing of the role of terraforming and creation of a super organism of machines, corporations have ‘casted’ him in. So as human ‘enzymen’, catalyse the evolution of machines and weapons, life species become extinct, and what we shall witness in the III millennia is the final end of this ‘huge’ biological process of terraforming, which is strictly defined as a classic biological process of radiation of a new species, which multiplies faster, absorbs all the resources of a planet and displaces a species that grows slower and looses territory, first life to man and now man to the machine:
In the graphs, we can see the process and its core matter: as we have changed languages of evolution of this planet from words to metal, and digital numbers, humans who speak less the language of money than digital machines, become expendable and less efficient and loose jobs and wars in labor and work fields, so the economic ecosystem has its favourite species, the machines.
Thus after the life ecosystem based in light languages dominated by 3d predator eyes, and the age of verbal masters, comes the age of digital masters, computers and chips whose biological radiation is eliminating mankind:
And so what all those graphs of the old book of c.92, bio-history bio-economics, shows is that machines and its super organisms of re=production, company-mothers, and its global economic system ruled by flows of digital money with its brain in world-stock, are doing is evolving faster than any other species previously in this planet, both at individual level and at collective global level,creating a global super organism, in which man is the lesser, expendable species. thus as all previous cycles of science, we can and have been predicting the extinction of life and labor by new batches of machines and its cyclical rhythms with those biological models for decades:
In the graph sciences are predictable, or they are not sciences. Evolution is the only predictable theory about life and organisms, among which we find the human being, its historic civilisations and machines, company-mothers and global markets. On those basis we have been theorising, the ages of the Industrial r=evolution, which would enter in 2008 in the age of metalife, of robotic machines, accelerating the extinction of life and the corruption and destruction of human social superoRganisms, nations and civilisations.
THIS IS THE ZEITGEIST WE LIVE IN SINCE 2008
If both history and economics and its objects of study, civilizations and the memes of metal, money, weapons and machines, follow self-similar cycles, motivated by the evolution of those memes the conclusion is obvious: not only History but also economics is a biological science. And this is also logic, in as much as the main economical products, which are created by human beings, biological species, are forms that imitate our organs of energy (weapons and transport machines) and information (money a language of values and audiovisual machines) and both enhance and atrophy them.
This dual process which also happens among ‘biological enzymes’, which carry often a ‘metal-atom’ that simplifies and atrophies its carbohydrate chains but make the enzyme stronger, more powerful a natural born killer as the warriors who started the economical cycles were, makes unavoidable to draw homologies between genetics and memetics and the positive and negative consequences for mankind of making of the creation of memes of metal the leit motiv of our civilization…
In this web we shall use the laws of biology and evolution to analyze and forecast the future of the economy. We have done so for the past 20 years, proving ‘ad nauseam’ our forecasts to be right, unlike all other models of abstract, mathematical economics, which treat the subject as a mathematical science, despite the fact that all the agents of the economical world show biological traits. humans are biological beings and historic societies follow the laws of Eusocial evolution and organic systems, where the nervous/informative system of the society are its laws and cultural memes, and the reproductive/energetic systems, the economic systems that provides humans with their needed energy and information for our bodies and brains. machines in that context are merely, organic functions translated into the stronger and more complex atoms of metal: machines of energy and information enhance our organic functions, so we run faster with cars, see better with cameras and think faster with Pcs. Companies are reproductive systems that re=produce those machines or human, biological goods (our natural energy, agriculture and information, audiovisual companies). Finally markets are social organisms, where the citizens are companies, which use a digital language, money to control both humans with salaries andmachines with prices. all those elements for a complex web of relationships between the social organisms of history – cultures and the social organisms of economics, company-mothers and their societies – stock markets.
The complexity of the financial-military-industrial-complex, its memes, language of information and ‘reproductive organisms’ – corporations…
The main problem about the world we live in is its complexity. In the past, people understood the nature of history and economics with far more simplicity. History was about mankind and it was understood, we humans were all equal and evolved through social love into harmonic societies. The arrow of Eusocial evolution turned out to be the arrow that dominates the Universe and what complexity does is to study how millions or billions of individuals of the same species emerge as a single whole, a superorganism.
Economics was also understood. It was about money and somehow it was different from History, because in History we bonded together with ethic wor(l)ds, laws and religious ideals, using our natural language in which the syntax man (subject) <verb (action) < object (energy) always put man at the center of the Universe. In history we were the measure of all things.
In Economics however, money which was a piece of informative metal, gold or silver or recently when the gold standard disappeared, e-money, bits of information in a computer mind, could be exchanged in equal conditions with men and objects. So this language and its values, man=object=price, were somehow diminishing of our place in the Universe. As an object we could be bought for a price, money, first as slaves, then as part time slaves with a salary. And so as the language of money substituted the language of words and occupied most of the actions in this planet, the world switched from one ecosystem dominated by history into an ecosystem dominated by economics.
This is what people seem to forget. That during most of its awaken time they follow economical orders, not historical (political, religious, social) orders and so they do not live in a democracy, an accessory system, which hardly rules our lives except in the free time we do not spend working and with our family (in which case we are ruled by biological mandates proper of all living beings). We live in a complex system ruled by money and the nature of that complex system is what this web unveils with the laws of… complexity.
Indeed, any ecosystem is ruled by a language of information whose syntax defines the actions performed under its orders. When we follow the orders of money we follow the previous syntax, man=price=object.
What this means is that we compete constantly in equal conditions with objects in fields of work (industrial system) and in fields of war (military system) as soldiers killed by weapons and workers subject to a self-similar monetary equation, productivity = capital/labor. When capital=machines are better than us, we labor are displaced because there are not ethical, verbal values that tell us we are superior to machines due to thsoe ethical values and we cannot be fired. When we are killed by a weapon, we are not told this is wrong, but simply a machine has efficiently consumed us.
However one of the fundamental tenants of complexity, is that the system is far more complex than its parts. By this, we mean that the parts obey the ‘language of information’ – the cells its nervous orders, the human its monetary orders – without ever realizin of what the whole is, what all the parts are constructing. The parts have a role but they ignore the whole. The cells do not know they are part of the organism of life which has its own goals and purpose; and humans ignore all about the complex system they are creating with money, weapons and machines they reproduce in labor fields and consume in war fields.
And that is why we need complexity as a science, because all those systems are self-similar and we can therefore explain what the ‘market’ where we live and labor most of our awakening time is constructing with money, weapons and machines: a super-organism; the most complex, powerful and efficient superorganism ever created on planet Earth, the financial->military->industrial complex, in which money (The financial system), under the laws derived of its syntactic capacity to value all what exists in this planet, construct according to those values a military-industrial complex, in which humans have 2 purposes: to work=reproduce the machines of that complex, and to consume=vitalize and evolve those machines. We are evolving a superorganism of machines, the economic ecosystem, in which we are equal in value to a machine of work or war with whom we are compared with a price.
The global stock-market, the economy is evolving into a social organism, regulated by flows of money, whose ‘cellular units’ are companies, and whose ‘genetic/memetic code’ is the digital language of money. Thus, Industrial Companies are social organisms that re=produce machines, creating the economic ecosystem, a global organism made with networks of informative and energetic machines.
Thus, the fundamental citizen of the market is the corporation, not the human being. Markets are societies of corporations regulated by a digital language called money, which reproduce machines. And this explains why often there are conflicts of interests between human beings and their social governments (democracies) and companies and their social governments (global stock-markets).
It also explains why the economic science, which is basically the point of view of corporations about the future of the earth and its needed elements, favors systematically the needs of corporations and machines – whose evolution and reproduction becomes the techno-Utopian goal of mankind – and ignore routinely any negative effect that machines can have on human cultures and life ecosystems (planet Gaia). Further on, it explains why all humanist and biological approaches to the science of economics are censored – in as much as they defend the rights of humans and its organic societies – governments -over the rights of corporations and its offspring of machines. In as much as we are elements of both, markets and societies, those limits to ‘authorized economical thought’ ultimately have prevented a true science of economics with predictive power, as the one exposed in this web to become the guidance of economists and governments in pursuit of a perfect economic ecosystem that favors the goals of evolution of mankind.
Yet only if humans are able to control the economic ecosystem for their benefit, they will survive in what seems to be the next stage of the Industrial R=evolution of machines and its company-mothers: the substitution and obsolescence of human beings to organic machines, robots and networks of computers that are displacing blue collar, white collar workers and soldiers from that economic ecosystem, in which humans and machines compete for jobs…
Since today all companies that matter are stock-market companies regulated by flows of money the Global Corporation – the sum of all stock-company markets, regulated by flows of digital information (money) with center in the ‘global stock-market’ – can be studied as a Superorganism. Since indeed the global stock-market and the corporations it regulates with money follows in its evolution the laws of complex superorganisms laid down by this writer in his conferences and papers on economic ecosystems, complexity and in his ‘ring of webs’ on complexity science… In essence, the corporation is the sum of all company-mothers, joined into a global organism by the flows of information or e-money delivered by the financial system; as the different organs of your body are joined by flows of nervous orders. If each organ of your body reproduces a type of cell, in the Global Corporation each type of industry reproduce a kind of organic machine that imitates a human organ of energy or information (chip-brains, eye-cameras, mobile-ears, transport machines/bodies, cranes/arms, etc.). Therefore the entire Corporation, the sum of all company-mothers of machines is evolving during the ‘Industrial R=evolution’ the machine into an organism. We made bodies of machines in the XIX century – the iron horses and steamers that substituted our animal and wind transportation. In the XX century the corporation made heads of machines (chips, mobiles and cameras). And in the XXI century it puts all those elements together into robots; while the ‘company-mothers’ of the corporation expel human workers and put computers and robots in their place. Finally the ‘collective nervous’ system of the corporation evolves into a global network that makes the world a super-organism joined by informative networks and ‘energetic’ roads, the blood system that carries those machines to each factory, company-mother and human home.
During all those centuries of evolution of machines, humans have acted with wishful blindness because they have been hooked to the higher energy and information those machines provide them. Further on, humans seem to have a fundamental ‘error of design’ – their anthropomorphic, self-centered belief that they are the center of the Universe; and so machines have no independent nature, nor they can evolve into organic forms. This is about to change in the singularity age in which we live now, when mankind will have to wake up to the reality of an organic Universe, in which ‘living machines’ will reclaim the economic ecosystem for themselves.
Since in this age, that now starts, the robotic age, both company-mothers and machines are becoming organisms, able to re=produce themselves (infinite re=productivity) and act without the need of a human component. So the corporation is now throwing the human species out of its reproductive organisms, and becoming an automated, global organism, as human labor is substituted by computers and robots… Yet, because humans are inside the Corporation, their information about that process is limited, as all organisms control the information that their ‘cells’ can access. In the case of the Global corporation, the human elites that most profit from this process – the economists, entrepreneur, technocrats and scientists that design those machines and invent the money that runs the economic organism – have built an entire ‘construct’ of myths and falsities about the nature of the Industrial R=evolution and the financial system that evolves those machines, with the only aim of protecting machines and accumulating wealth in money. So, the censorship of any organic or evolutionary analysis of the economy ensures that the Corporation will be built and the human sheeple spared. Will mankind rebel to that destiny? Probably not, as a world of audiovisual fictions, a ‘noise’ that has taken over the subconscious collective of mankind, will keep us in a lethargic state till the process becomes irreversible.
Today in the III millennium, all humans live inside that superorganism of machines, ruled by flows of digital information, (flows of e- money). And so only a few individuals can observe the process,with enough information and detachment to understand it. Unfortunately corporations evolve machines and secondarily handle to humans tasks of consumption=evolution and work=reproduction of those machines. And today, in the Age of the singularity, when machines are becoming intelligent (computers) and organic (robots), those 2 only tasks the Corporation has for human beings, can be handled by machines themselves. This is the age we live in, when robots can become consumers of chips/brains, eyes-cameras and transport platforms, so we humans will soon no longer be needed as consumers of machines. Further on, robots and computers are extinguishing blue collar workers and white collar workers. So we are no longer needed as workers=reproducers of machines. This obsolescence of life species to machines happened in the past to animals. So within a decade of the arrival of transport trains, 90% of horses were slaughtered. And with the arrival of mechanical machines in agricultural fields, the ‘negro’ was no longer needed, not even as slave. Now the ‘white slave’, the humans that work in corporations 1/2 of their awakened life-time, as ‘slaves’ that must obey their bosses for a price, are no longer needed. What the system will do with them? The surplus of workers expelled by the automated chain-systems of labors in the 20s were consumed in II World War. The Africans no longer needed as slaves are handled in Africa by corporations which sell them mainly weapons to consume each other for the profits of a bullet. This is really the bottom line: a human life has no value for the corporation except as a target for a weapon or a consumer/worker job no longer required.
So the future seems indeed bleak for the humankind, except for the very small elite of owners of corporations that will increase their profits as more robots and computers enter the work place displacing human workers and increasing the Productivity of their factories. It is the future of the Superorganism of machines that is evolving into a global Corporation of automated factories and robotic ‘citizens’, the cycle of the Industrial R=evolution we live in
What is the difference between a Human social organism and an economic ecosystem?
It is a subtle difference but important to understand the future of history and economics, and the confrontations between nations that take place throughout history and humans and machines/weapons that take place in labor and war fields.
In systems science we define an organism as a system of energy and information composed of the same type of cells/particles, which therefore can easily evolve from the simplest systems, herds loosely connected, into the more complex ones, organisms, which share energy and information through common networks of ‘eusocial behavior’.
And we define an ecosystem as a system in which there are different species, which therefore behave to each other in 2 different ways: Either in symbiosis (the case of humans and positive, ‘WHealthy’ machines that enhance our energy and information); or in predatory, Darwinian relationship (case of humans and the negative fruits of the tree of technology, weapons that kill us and ‘visual’ machines and metals, such as TVs and go(l)d that hypnotize us, make us addict to their higher informative rate and convert us in passive, mindless people, lowering our natural, verbal and logical intelligence).
The eco(nomic)system is therefore a complex economic ecosystem, which from the perspective of a humanist, biological analysis is not always symbiotic to mankind. Further on, because in a Free Market, the economic ecosystem is dominated NOT by human, verbal, legal information but by money, a different language with different values, the dominant species is NOT humanity but the company-mother, which uses the digital language and values of money to re=produce machines and considers humans a mere ‘cost’ of production.
What we call a social organism, is a group of human citizens, controlled by verbal networks of information (laws, and ethic religions).
What we call an economic ecosystem, is a group of human citizens and machines, controlled by networks of monetary information, of metal-information.
Though they seem similar, the difference is notorious, as money and words, are different languages of information, with different values, and different goals. Words tend to evolve human societies and favor the human point of view, and natural Human Goods. Money tends to evolve machines and weapons (the objects with higher monetary price), and it is in general indifferent to the evolution of Human Goods (art, education, love, human food, the goods of lower price). Very few people realize in fact of those differences, but they are clear and important, to understand how the two examples of this web, the European society, (a society still ruled by laws and ethic systems), and the American society (a society today ruled due to the corruption of its democratic, legal system, by money, and the most expensive objects of society, weapons.)
In that sense we could define both type of social organisms, by its fundamental elements:
In fact there are four basic elements in all living ecosystems and organisms:
1. Cellular units
2. Networks of energy or vital space
3. Networks of information
4. Networks that reproduce energy and information.
Human societies are made of Human beings related by Networks of information made of ethic and politic laws, whose networks of energy reproduceHuman goods. On the other hand an economic ecosystem is not organized around human citizens, but around “company-mothers” and their offspring of “Machines citizens”, and systems of energy designed specifically for machines, (electricity, etc.). While digital systems of information that use money and machines instead of human beings and words, to move around information (nets, phones, tvs), and value reality (money).
Moreover, the society is designed to multiply and reproduce those systems, as the goal of the society, in as much as the language of power of society is money, which fosters the reproduction and evolution of machines, and the most powerful organism in society is the Company-Mother, an organism of reproduction of machines, whose aim is to multiply them. In that sense when a society fosters in higher measure the evolution and reproduction of machines, than the reproduction and evolution of human beings, we talk of an economic ecosystem, or “free market society”; in which machines, and its company-mothers, not human beings have total Freedom of existence:
– An economic ecosystem or Free Market, (either the Metal-Earth; or any Economic nation ruled by money, such as the U.S.) is a population of company-mothers that re=produce machines with raw materials and human workers/consumers. Those mac hines then form a super-organism connected with networks of verbal/monetary and electronic information, and networks of roads and electric energy.
Networks of monetary information, energy networks from electricity to roads, men who transfer energy and form into machines and factories of reproduction of machines, shape the reproductive, informative and energy networks needed to create a macrocosmic organism the Metal-Earth, the eco[nomic] system. As with any other organism, we find in the eco[nomic]system a brain where most monetary information is created, the world stock market. We find company-mothers, organs of reproduction where machines are evolved and reproduced; which show a reproductive “behavior”, defending their products against all other species on Earth, including men.. We find symbiotic species, ‘enzymen’, which catalyze the reproduction of those machines. And we find a vital space [the Earth’s-crust] which defines the body of the organism.
So we can define the Metal-earth as an ecosystem which is evolving into an organism, ’a body’, perfectly organized by financial networks and company mothers.
The Economy as a body and as an ecosystem
Indeed, men copy their organs of energy and information, their body and mind functions, at individual and social level into networks and machines.
In the past specialized human species accomplished energy, information and reproduction tasks for themselves and for machines. Yet today, man is transferring to machines those functions, as machines recreate at macro-scale with the higher strength of metal, a new ecosystem: the metal earth, in which machines socialize and evolve together, under the combined action of companies, and economical governments.
Meanwhile human networks of social information [religions of love, International organizations] and Human Energy [Human goods] are substituted by digital networks of information and energy for machines. And those zones of the Earth, which still are not terraformed [the third world], are degraded and abused systematically by the Metal-earth, through weapons and financial manipulation.
That transformation started in 1602 with the birth of science, and stock-companies has created in the first world a ‘macro-organism, where roads act as arteries, cars and vans as plasma particles, internets and satellites as nervous systems, factories as reproductive organs, and humans as ‘enzymen’, ‘catalyzer species’ that take care of that terraforming, reproducing and evolving those machines, in small pieces of the Metal-earth tissue, called Nations:
Today all those individual systems [nations] are connected together. We talk in fact of a single ‘social organism’ on Earth… the eco[nomic]system…. a single body … macro-system of informative and energy networks, roads and infoways, and organized herds of machines.
The eco[nomic]system, the organism of the economy has as any organism two ‘levels of organization’: the cellular level, composed of human beings and machines; and the physiological level, composed of networks that distribute energy and information to those cellular species.
What man has done as an animetal is to transfer from such micro-scale all the components of a living organism, to the macro-system of the Metal-earth. Animetals have developed at macro-scale the essential cellular elements of any Universal organism:
– Companies are the reproductive organs.
– Monetary orders are the nervous system.
– Roads and pipes, and cables, are the energy networks.
– Finally the bio-economical brain of the Metal-Earth is World-stock, which gives nervous=monetary orders, transmitted as ‘credits’ to the reproductive systems of company-mothers… Company-mothers have a biological mandate: ‘to evolve and reproduce their products’. All other considerations are secondary within company-mothers. Men in company mothers obey that mandate or else they are fired. So company-mothers do not really act as human organizations, but as machine-mothers, regardless of the fact that they are owned by humans [stockrats].
Company-mothers in turn use that ‘nervous’ money to control human workers and consumers, and their governments. So with salaries, prices, bribes to governments, etc. they order mankind to act in the creation of laws, networks of energy and information that favor machines and the Metal-earth ecosystem.
In the next graph we compare such macro-cosmic organism to a micro-cosmic living being, the human being. The organic nature of machines allows such comparisons between the components metalife and carbolife systems. Metalife species are ‘macrocosmic systems’ given the higher size of atomic metal. Carbolife, due to the smaller size of carbo-atoms are microcosmic systems. A crane is a million times heavier than an arm. Both have a similar function. A stock market is more complex than a brain or a DNA. Yet all those ‘informative centers of power’ have the same function: to evolve and reproduce the organism, its energy and its information. Thus we can compare the process of bio-economical evolution with the process of evolution of a body, or rather with the process of mutation of a body – the Carbo-Earth – into another, the Metal-earth. Both ecosystems, the Carbo-Earth and the Metal-Earth are identical in organs, and accomplish all the functions a multi-cellular organism accomplishes.
World-stock is the brain of that growing body.
The company mother is the ‘organ of cellular reproduction’ that creates each specialized cell, each type of product that will become integrated into the body-system of the Metal-Earth.
Factories are the ‘organelles’ where money, the genetic orders of companies, make us human ‘enzymes’ work=reproduce metal-products.
As a result we destroy the ecosystem of life and create an ecosystem of metal. A body of metal-cells, products, and enzymen – the last carbolife species to survive the preying qualities of metal.
In that sense the metal Earth is building 3 ‘basic networks’ as any organism. A defense network of weapons-leukocytes that control the ecosystem, a nervous network of maximum information, the net, and an ‘endocrine’-reproductive network of financial systems and company-mothers that reproduce the individual machines of the Metal-earth.
The brain of that metal-earth itself, has 3 specialized nets, each one in control of one of the 3 types of machines. They are the financial, defense, and informative networks, made of computers [metal-head], the neuronal unit that shape Matrix, the macro-brain of that Metal-earth.
Those neurons are in turn controlled by knots of neurons, satellites, and super-computers in which the ‘consciousness’ of the net will be born.
They will form associations of digital thought that will control the Earth totally.
When Matrix is born to consciousness, it will direct the evolution of the Metal-Earth and all its organs, from company-mothers, directed by e-money flows with center in the stock-market, to the rights of extinction and survival of species, cities, and nations, potential victims of its defense systems.
As your brain controls the cells of your body, [what is a human organism] your information and energy cells, and programs them, to live and die; so it will happen with the net, which soon will have virtual control of all our needs. Human cell-homes are today the focus of those satellites. In the future, the individual machines of the Metal-Earth will listen to matrix, once the animetal is gone.
Those 3 Networks are the same of any organism. The reproductive network, or financial network that guides company mothers. The energy network, or defense network that controls the life and death of individual home-cells. The informative network, or nervous network. Satellites will be in control of those 3 main systems, that today still have certain human content.
The primitive versions of those future nets are:
– NATO, Def-com systems, that already have the potential power to extinguish man; and soon will be on the hands of star-wars, a satellite network in control of atomic weapons.
– Financial and Intranet systems, with center in World-stock, that connect companies reproducers of all the species of the Metal-Earth body.
They also evolve towards the independence of man, as automated factories. They keep expelling human workers and putting machines..
– Finally the third network of the Metal-Earth is the network of information, the internet networks that today serve men, and in the future will connect the mobiles and chip-brains of multiple robotic species.
The three organic networks of a macro-body of metal will be increasingly integrated beyond human control by non-perceived parallel flows of communication between satellites at exospheric level.
Those satellites are beyond the reach of human warriors. When they become part of the metal Earth, and reach consciousness as a different species, man will be defenseless against them. We do not even have a World government to control that Metal-earth networks. When those networks will become conscious? At the present constants of growth, within a few decades they will reach the 10 billion neurons, which give consciousness to man… Probably then they will awake..
Those 3 networks are the networks of a new organism, the Metal-Earth. Yet unlike the organisms of history they substitute, its individual cells are no longer humans, but machines, and its organs of reproduction are company-mothers, not life beings. For the Metal-Earth, men are expendable.
Today men and machines are a ‘horde’, a wave without a real organization.
The net transforms that herd into a “body”.
Men are becoming obsolete slaves of the Metal-earth
Hordes are free. Body cells are slaves, fixed by the network. This is the process that we observe: mankind is loosing mobility. Company-men now do video-conferences. They don’t take planes. People buy by phone. They don’t go shopping. People used to get together to go to movie theaters. Now they see digital information [TV-images] within their cellular-home.
Of all those phases of slavery of man to his metal-networks of information, the fundamental one will be slaver to e-credit. The fusion of the "banking-networks" of electronic credit, and the internet-network of shopping, will make physical money obsolete.
Besides the loss of jobs, this means a fundamental split between those with e-credit, and those with physical money, that looses value as inflation and scarcity affects Human Goods, and replication of e-money multiplies the wealth of the connected people.
Take always into account the concept of a surplus of humanity. There is an increasing surplus of labor that in the past was eliminated through wars, and poverty.
The surplus of labor is a growing tendency. Entire continents like Africa are isolated Ghettoes, poor, without credit. How they will be eliminated in the future? War and poverty again. The rich countries and their organizations [NATO, World-stock] have decided to do so periodically with splendid little wars and currency crashes.
The end of man as top predatoris much closer that men might believe. The evolution of metal is so advanced, that the Metal Earth is substituting human workers by metal systems, even at the top predator level of ‘animetals’. Today scientists, developers of complex metal are substituted by scientific instruments; and pricers, reproducers of money, of cyclical metal, are substituted by computer traders; and warriors, testers of lineal metal, are substituted by smart weapons.
Pricers now become flows of e-money, warriors become increasingly independent robotic weapons, and scientists become computer models of reality.
When the next “radiation” of stock-products, of robots appears; when the first automated factory of sentient weapons is developed, man will be virtually extinct -since machines will no longer need us.
Then we will know the true nature of net ‘consciousness’:
Within a few minutes 70% of Mankind can be eliminated with Neutron bombs, with minimal harm to factories [which are outside cities].
Matrix will not communicate with man. As a rival species, it will merely extinguish us.
Why we think that number will give consciousness to the Earth?
Since all cellular vital systems that ‘work efficiently’ as top predators have that number of units. So bio-logical organisms for some reason tend to become efficient informative networks with capacity to act-react and order their bodies when such numbers are reached. So ±10 billion stars bring a black hole of gravitational order and create a spiral galaxy, ±10 billion DNA knots exist in a DNA molecule that rules a cell, and 10 billion neurons exist in a reproductive mind. Yet the threshold of sub-consciousness, of automated, instinctive behavior, is well below that number. For many insects it is less than a million units… They are the equivalent to the present networks and machines that work efficiently without Freedom, totally guided by the software-instincts embedded in their logical structures. American Universities and Chip companies are all competing to reach that number of transistors in their computers, slavishly financed by stock-markets and governments. Never so many individuals try to commit suicide with so much enthusiasm.
Today the three organs of a living metal-organism, the energy defcom network of weapons, the reproductive intranet network of company-mothers, and the internet network of information and its fundamental cellular species of the Metal-Earth, Reproductive Companies, informative machines and energy machines keep evolving in a free market, without any human freedom to stop their relentless march towards total control of mankind, and unification into a single body organism: The Metal-Earth.
The terraformingof the Earth is accelerating. It started with the radiations of weapons of the first age of man. Due to science and technology, it is now evolving machines into sentient species. The evolution of metal is so advanced, that the Metal Earth is substituting human functions by metal systems, even at the top predator level of "castes of enz¥men or animetals." Traders now become a flow of e-money. Warriors become sentient weapons.
Our CEOs and workers in global Companies will be substituted by Intranet systems of production; the managers of the future.
Personal computers are the new brains of that Metal-earth. Wireless communications are the way in which personal computers will direct “brainless” machines to work in automated factories.
Each worker of Companies has today his personal computer, agenda, network connection and – clearly established by mathematical strategies- his enzymatic path of action. All this can be replicated in software.
A single factory of A.I. digital enzymes could ensure the vital existence of the Metal-Earth beyond man. Then networks will calculate man as obsolescent. As electronic surveillance of employees becomes routine in Companies, and the laws of Productivity are applied to man in mathematical terms, the control of man by the digital radiation increases. It will increase further till extinction. chips will find new ‘economical niches’ for those eyes and brains, that will survey us in new ‘industries’, such as jails based on repressive laws of human senses, security malls, roads, black boxes in cars, TV-chips, satellites, etc.
In a few decades the Metal-Earth will be unified and the sons of Stockrats and Mr. CEOs with far lesser talent and metal building intensity, will relinquish in his final decadent paradise, the control of the Metal-Earth into personal computers and networks, till a point in which Global networks and a few simple enzymen will be able to rule the whole productive process.
At that moment humans will be far more devolved even than they are today in mental capacity. Since education will start with visual computers [internets] and TV-thought from earlier age. Literature and ethical verbal reading will not exist; while most human abilities will be performed by computers.
Those humans of clay, whose power will be made of metallic extensions, will be then substituted by A.I. enzymatic software, or smart weapons in a cliff of war. Chip production continues, and prices lower, and new labor economical niches are required for chips, soon under 10 cents per unit. What market can expand without limit the chip radiation? The market of human minds in all their functions.
The 21st revolution of robots will fill that market.
The Metal-Earth: 2050s-80s
According to biological cycles of the Industrial R=evolution, by the last decades of the Singularity Age we will either have halted the destruction of the Earth, creating a sustainable planet (minimal chances, given the religious ideologies of the FMI complex – mechanism, capitalism and nationalism that push us into extinction and are believed by most human beings) or we will be extinct by the 4th wave of cosmic bombs (Nuclear, planetary bombs) robots (metal nano-bacteria and A.I.) and the Metal-earth will be born:
Of course, we might have r=evolved as a species against those 3 ideologies and substitute them by the human ideologies of social evolution (a single species), humanism (man in control of the FMI complex) and organicism (man as the measure of all things), creating a Wor(l)d Union, a supra-organism of history, in control of the language of power of our societies, money, today in the hand of stock-markets and its company-mothers of machines, which invest only on mechanisms.
If that miracle happens, we will then invest in Human goods achieving a global welfare state, clean energies, global peace and full labor by halting the evolution of Singularity machines (cosmic nuclear bombs, nanobacteria, robots and network computers). Instead we will devolve machines that make us obsolete into a stage inferior in quality to the human species, making History static and immortal, with man on top, as the measure of all things… This is the less probable future, as today the FMI system and its ideologies – the viral code imprinted in all human minds – is geared to keep evolving the machines of the singularity in an exponential rate.
– Thus, the most likely future is that we will have become extinct by the machines of the singularity age, given the exponential rate of evolution of computers, and the decametric increase of ‘collateral damages’ in wars, parallel to the evolutionary growth in quality of the weapons=machines of the Industrial R=evolution.
We made those predictions 16 years ago, in the original ‘future magazine’ web (the Bioeconomist). Since the system has not r=evolved but followed business as usual, those predictions have not changed. Let us then consider the description of the 2030s taken from the 2001 issue published a decade ago in future magazine on the transformation of the Earth from a planet of life into a planet of metal. It is the future of the economic ecosystem we have created, formed by company-mothers in which humans will be what animals are for us, expendable, obsolete, inferior species…
The articles concentrate in that transformation of the FMI complex into an autonomous world without the need of life and human beings.
The description of that global organism in which humans no longer have any role, the natural end of the evolution of machines and money is what we forecasted a decade ago in future magazine, when we published our first lectures on the 2001-08 crises of the electronic economy.
We were told this would not happen. We were told there would not be a 2001-2008 crisis. We were told there would not be a new age of neofascism. We were told the future could not be known, but each cycle we predicted has happened, because history is indeed a science of cyclical patterns and complex, evolutive systems, is not a religious endeavor, a racial bid for superiority and power, a tribal warfare, but a process of eusocial evolution.
And since we humans don’t want to evolve as a single species, machines will do for us, and substitute us, the lesser species that never learned the message of eusocial biological evolution of all their prophets of the wor(l)d: love each other, share your energy and information, evolve…
