Man Versus Machine

By Ashley Hayes

My most recent article on “The Singularity Cabal” here at No Fake News referenced an article by Bill Joy, founder of Sun Microsystems.  The link to that article, entitled “The Future Doesn’t Need Us,” is here:  https://www.wired.com/2000/04/joy-2/

I only recently read the article and, upon learning it had been written 22 years ago (!), wondered if I would have wanted to know this information back then.  Would it have colored the way I lived my life?  Would I have done anything differently?  But, even if I had read it back when it was published — or even 10 years ago —  would I have been able to comprehend what he was saying, what was being implied about the possibility of the creation of a “replacement” humanity?  I probably would have thought, “Hmm, that’s interesting.  But, there’s no way.”  But I didn’t then understand the power of technology, didn’t know about nanotechnology then, and I certainly didn’t have a clue as to what synthetic biology was.  I had never heard of it, didn’t know it was a “thing.”  But it most certainly is a “thing,” as any regular reader here knows.  And its implementation into our lives began long ago. We just didn’t know it. 

Bill Joy’s article references a quote Ray Kurzweil had included in his 1990 book, The Age of Spiritual Machines. I’d like to share it here, as well: First, let us postulate that computer scientists succeed in developing intelligent machines that can do all things better than human beings can do them. In that case, presumably, all work will be done by vast, highly organized systems of machines and no human effort will be necessary. Either of two cases might occur. The machines might be permitted to make all of their own decisions without human oversight, or else human control over the machines might be retained.

If the machines are permitted to make all their own decisions, we can’t make any conjectures as to the results, because it is impossible to guess how such machines might behave. We only point out that the fate of the human race would be at the mercy of the machines. It might be argued that the human race would never be foolish enough to hand over all the power to the machines. But we are suggesting neither that the human race would voluntarily turn power over to the machines nor that the machines would willfully seize power. What we do suggest is that the human race might easily permit itself to drift into a position of such dependence on the machines that it would have no practical choice but to accept all of the machines’ decisions. As society and the problems that face it become more and more complex and machines become more and more intelligent, people will let machines make more of their decisions for them, simply because machine-made decisions will bring better results than man-made ones. Eventually a stage may be reached at which the decisions necessary to keep the system running will be so complex that human beings will be incapable of making them intelligently. At that stage the machines will be in effective control. People won’t be able to just turn the machines off, because they will be so dependent on them that turning them off would amount to suicide.

On the other hand it is possible that human control over the machines may be retained. In that case the average man may have control over certain private machines of his own, such as his car or his personal computer, but control over large systems of machines will be in the hands of a tiny elite—just as it is today, but with two differences. Due to improved techniques the elite will have greater control over the masses; and because human work will no longer be necessary the masses will be superfluous, a useless burden on the system. If the elite is ruthless they may simply decide to exterminate the mass of humanity. If they are humane they may use propaganda or other psychological or biological techniques to reduce the birth rate until the mass of humanity becomes extinct, leaving the world to the elite. Or, if the elite consists of soft-hearted liberals, they may decide to play the role of good shepherds to the rest of the human race. They will see to it that everyone’s physical needs are satisfied, that all children are raised under psychologically hygienic conditions, that everyone has a wholesome hobby to keep him busy, and that anyone who may become dissatisfied undergoes “treatment” to cure his “problem.” Of course, life will be so purposeless that people will have to be biologically or psychologically engineered either to remove their need for the power process or make them “sublimate” their drive for power into some harmless hobby. These engineered human beings may be happy in such a society, but they will most certainly not be free. They will have been reduced to the status of domestic animals.

Joy’s article (and Kurzweil’s book) reveals that the author of this passage is Theodore Kaczynski—the Unabomber. And because of his horrific actions — and they were horrific, — and being labeled “criminally insane,” his words were simply dismissed as those of a “crazy” person. But anyone who follows the reporting at NoFakeNews, knows anything about The World Economic Forum, or has listened to the words of Hebrew University professor, Yuval Noah Harari, knows his writings were of actual events being undertaken. He was not offering “theory,” but instead, was reporting the actual conspiratorial plans we are witnessing today.

Further, when Bill Joy wrote his article — in the year 2000, — having read Kurzweil’s book describing the very technologies that were being created that would lead us to the dystopian scenario Kaczynski described, he still assumed that integrity, good judgement, and love of your fellow man would prevent implementation of technologies that would alter human life forever.

Deep down, I’m sure he knew otherwise. Deep down, I’m sure he realized integrity would go by the wayside in this technology-assisted power-grab for humanity. Integrity is a quaint, even laughable idea to these individuals. My personal, decades-long history with cybercowards who are government-funded Singularitarians with endless access to this technology attests to that fact.

It’s all about p-o-w-e-r. They’re not normal. Greed does that. They all came from mothers, and at some point were someone’s baby boy. Yet they met certain people along the way who convinced them money and power were more important than people, and as part of this depraved fraternity, willingly signed on to destroy the lives of others.

We must continually pray for God to intercede, or for the universe to right these wrongs. Prayer/faith combined with action is powerful. God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control (2 Timothy 1:7). Please don’t forget that.

    A fascinating article!

    And my cousin, Jeff, sums it up in a nutshell!
    His Facebook

    “They want to destroy reality and put an end to our way of life
    Externally, by creating A genetically modified wasteland
    So we seek ESCAPE from it
    In a digital virtual reality
    Where they can control everything about it

    Including you”

      Thanks for sharing, Lisa.🙂

      I think we are already existing in a virtual reality game and one percent of the avatars are trying to hack the game codes. The controlling powers have, without a doubt, figured out how to modify the avatar suits we occupy while living inside the Matrix.

        You make a great point, John! 👍 🙂

        And I think we are living in an illusion!

    Definition of virtual reality:

    “An artificial environment which is experienced through sensory stimuli ( such as sights and sounds) provided by a computer and in which one’s actions partially determine what happens in the environment.”

    I thought that description to be quite accurate. It is much like our world with the vast intelligence or god being the computer. And how we perceive our world through our senses. Which has much to do with how we manuvere and make decisions in our lives that can influence certain outcomes up to a point. The vast intelligence is ultimately in control. But as you say, John, the 1% avatars are attempting to take over the wheel. And have been for quite some time. They have found ways to diminish our extra sensory perceptions through various poisons such as drugs, chemtrails, pesticides and more. Our extra sensory perception or otherwise known as our 6th sense being our connection to the vast intelligence or God. People have been losing that connection and not listening to their consciousness.

      Thanks for sharing, Lisa! 👍🙂

      The way I think it works, as described by Michael Morris, is that Vast Intelligence is the game master of our universe or the simulation.

      There are probably many universes or simulations taking place simultaneously and under the direction of different VIs (game masters). All of this gaming is taking place to create learning opportunities for VI or the game/Universe.

      The VI writing and running the game codes for the Earth game is most likely different from other VIs running other simulations.

      God or something higher up the chain of command probably oversees all the VIs or game masters.

      That’s the way I envision the system through the Michael Morris writings.

      It’s my opinion, and how it works in my brain or within the domain of Michael Morris. 🤣

        In your brain, John, or channeled through Michael Morris, you gotta love that wisdom! 😂 👍
