Surely no one can have failed to notice:
Engineered electronic intelligence in pocket sized parameters is a formidable little weapon of potential mass destruction.
However, one must not make assumptions, since most of humanity has so far failed to notice that atmospheric aerosol geoengineering is a weapon of mass destruction, I guess it should come as no surprise that ‘smart’ cell phones remain largely unrecognized as the little mind-bombs that they are.
Not the sort of bombs that cause vast explosions – that form of destruction may be close to past its sell-by date for those who would engineer our futures. No need, after all, to blow us all to hell if we are perfectly happy to go there quietly, of our own accord.
And many millions seem ready to do just that; led by the Pied Piper of convenience technology.
For there is a strange world out there, a virtual world to which literally billions of people are now addicted, finding it indispensable to their daily routines.
The madness of geoengineering our climate and smart phone engineering our brains, is linked.
Put superficially, the more you look down at your flickering gismo the less likely you are to look up to witness the engineered cloud formations grid-lining our once blue skies. Or for that matter, the beauty and subtlety of nature or the grace and dignity of fine architecture.
In fact, a disposition towards ‘not seeing’ has been on the rise for at least two or three decades now.
It applies to,
- Food additives
- Electro smog,
…and so many more creeping weapons of the ‘silent wars’ assailing our planet and our physiological and mental capacities.
One might try to dismiss these devitalizing agents as necessary evils of the convenience age. A society dependent upon instant fixes and instant communications, instant satisfactions and instant just about everything.
One might, until one realizes that they are impregnating and polluting our blood stream, subtly altering our DNA and changing our very nature from the inside out… and from the outside in.
What kind of insanity is this?
Just witness the tens of thousands of spiky steel mobile phone towers that now cover the Earth like something out of HG Wells’s ‘War of the Worlds’.
Each one spewing its mind altering unseen microwaves into the surrounding community. And all because everyone has to have a cell phone with which to engage in what, for the majority, are typically banal, bland and boring conversations.
I have written before about Trans-humanism and the plans for a human engineered robotic cyber intelligence to usurp responsibility for the future (and the present) from human kind.
I warned that we must be alert to this cold blooded cybernetic concept gaining ground, especially amongst those who wish to divest themselves of all sense of responsibility for planetary life, and indeed the lives of future generations.
Now I wish us to direct our attentions towards the role that the smart phone addiction is playing in hastening this further demise of Homo sapiens.
It’s a slippage that leads towards an almost wholly derailed human race. One that relies on a machine to do the thinking while the time honored neocortex loses its capacity to function; to discern between what is reality and what is virtual reality. What is actual and what is illusory. What is real and what is unreal.
Many is the occasion upon which I have taken my seat on a train and found myself surrounded on all sides by people staring hypnotically into their illuminated smart phones, tablets, iPhones/iPods lap-tops and god knows what else.
Tweeting and twittering-out endless text messages to social media sites and fellow twittering twots. Watching movies; or just scrolling… scrolling… endlessly scrolling. Which rhymes with ‘strolling’, but has long since usurped this pleasing outdoor pursuit.
All the while a spreading cloud of electro-smog penetrates corpuscles and brain cells alike, disrupting and distorting the wave-forms that constitute the natural channels and interface of communication, between us – and indeed between all species
We need a law, following the lines of the ‘passive smoker’ rebellion – which will outlaw such activities and protect the non-user of wireless technology against brain bending microwaves zapping the unprotected neocortex of unsuspecting neighbors.
But it took around forty years of intense lobbying and tens of thousands of ‘scientific papers’ to prove that smoking commercial cigarettes causes cancer.
How long and how many casualties will it take to achieve protection from electromagnetic radiation? Legislation alone achieves just so much; ‘just so little’. There are one thousand and one toxic nasties that should have been legislated against decades ago.
Unless society as a whole is moving towards a degree of enlightened awareness, all the rules in the world are not going to alter the underlying problem:
the majority of mankind prefers to be a slave than to be a leader or responsible partner within the global family of man.
