Google already secured access to patient data from the NHS in England. (I mentioned this on my Instagram when the news was fresh). Facebook wants to do the same: Facebook wants to know everything about you. The official reason is of course that this is all being done for the greater good … this is always the official reason behind any social and governmental adjustments….regardless of the consequences or lives lost in the process….
I guess I was one of those who had my feed manipulated (if you read the article I just linked to, you’ll see what I mean); I noticed it though and figured it out straight away. I experienced having all of my social media tampered with; in fact this has been an on and off issue since 2015. Back then I thought I was being pranked by someone I knew; before it finally dawned on me that it could have been anyone. I wasn’t sure if I was being targeted by a real person or a bot run amok, if I was dealing with one individual or several, and hopefully I’ll never know, since I was really freaked out by my digital stalker. To be or not to be human, it matters little, the effect is the same if you get spooked out online. It should be possible to use social media without acquiring a phone-phobia. I changed my passwords several times daily, but to no avail. And in the end I figured that I could might as well share what I was reading online and write about all sorts of things, since privacy is completely dead.
It has been dead for a while due to how people use their gadgets, and share private conversations and photos.
The gigantic, global, people-registers that have been created should frighten people far and wide. I’ve deleted my personal Facebook account and rarely use my phone anymore, which is being stored in a completely different part of the flat where I live.
Meanwhile Elon Musk warns about a potential future A.I. Dictator; what he describes though sounds an awful lot like God; who knows your thoughts, your feelings, your social network, all your whereabouts, a God that you can never escape from or hide anything from. What he describes has already been described several times through the ages; so if you believe in spirituality, then this is rather a power-shift, where humans try to be smart by creating their own God, bypassing the original system, revolting against the established, celestial, universal order.
I doubt that Musk’s trans-human vision will bear fruit, unless he and his ilk can figure out a way to control the weather and the cosmic super-powers. For all we know we might be heading for a reset, since the planet has been reset several times before. I personally believe that this tech of ours has to be destroyed before it kills us in one way or another.
To put it this way; if an ideal employee can be created to do manual tasks, then why on earth will a human work-force still be needed? We are possibly looking at a future where we make millions of humans redundant, at a point in time where there is a problem of over-population. There should be no need to point out how that issue probably will play out.
Dramatic climate change might be the best thing that can happen to humanity and the planet.
