2061. Nach dem Frieden


“Unsere Gesellschaft in nicht allzu ferner Zukunft. Eine düstere, von Kriegen gezeichnete Welt. Das Volk hat sich schon lange von den kriegstreibenden Regierungen abgewendet. Anarchie sollte den Frieden bringen. Aber die Situation wurde nur noch schlimmer. 30 Jahre vergingen und die Menschen vergaßen langsam, dass es einmal so etwas wie Frieden gegeben hatte.”//kintzebros

“Erziehung, Liebe, Familie, Zukunft sind Luxusgüter und den wenigen vorbehalten, die sich hinter hohen Mauern vor der restlichen Welt verstecken können. Diese neue Oberschicht bezahlt Söldnerheere um ihren Wohlstand zu verteidigen und eine Illusion von Geborgenheit aufrecht zu erhalten.
Der erklärte Todfeind der Söldner sind die Punks. Die Punks sind ein loser Verbund von paramilitärisch organisierten Widerständlern. Militante Anarchisten, Vertriebene und Verzweifelte. Fast keiner weiß mehr, für wen oder was er noch kämpft.
Die Kinder werden mit ständiger Propaganda auf die eine oder andere Seite gezogen und zum Kampf gedrillt.
Die wenigen Menschen, die nicht kämpfen, stehen zwischen den Fronten. Sie hassen die Punks und fürchten die Söldner.”//amateurfilm-forum


“Als wir erfahrene Soldaten brauchten, um die Kämpfer von den Flüchtlingen in den ruandischen Flüchtlingslagern in Goma zu trennen, zog ich auch die Möglichkeit in Betracht eine Privatfirma zu beauftragen. Aber die Welt ist wahrscheinlich noch nicht bereit, den Frieden zu privatisieren.”(Kofi Annan)//Kriegsreisende


Moore’s Law Won’t Create The Singularity On Its Own

Artificial General Intelligence: Now is the Time

Google Tech Talks. May 30, 2007. Dr. Ben Goertzel//conscious robot

The creation of a superhumanly intelligent AI system could be possible within 10 years, with an “AI Manhattan Project,” says Ben Goertzel.:::(2007)::::


“AGI (Artificial General Intelligence)  has the potential to create a true utopia—or at any rate, something far closer to utopia than anything possibly creatable using human intelligence alone…It seems quite possible to create transhuman AGI systems that care about humans roughly as much as we care about ants, flies or bacteria..Furthermore, the possibility of an aggressively evil AGI cannot be ruled out, particularly if the first AGIs are modeled on human brains. Human emotions like hostility and malice will almost surely be alien to non-human-brain-like AGI systems, unless some truly perverse humans decide to program them in.”//kurzweilai


“Of course, few human beings want to serve as “neurons” in a “global brain” – but this is a bit of a paranoid vision because humans, being far more complex and flexible than neurons, are not suited for playing neurons’ roles anyway. Being part of a mindplex is a qualitatively different concept than being part of an individual brain, and is not intrinsically more oppressive or restrictive than being part of a contemporary human social group. A mindplex’s patterns of control over its components will be more complex than the patterns of control that a human social group exerts over its members, but not necessarily more onerous or restrictive. Clearly, massive uncertainties lurk here!”//MINDPLEXES


“Once you’ve trained an AI mind, you may have a system that’s a conscious intelligence just as much as we are.  You know, it’s not very nice just to mutate its consciousness, against its will.  “I’m sorry; we are now going to make you mentally challenged.  You didn’t like it, huh?  Too bad.  You’re just an AI.  You have no rights.”  You don’t want to do that. On the other hand, it may well be the AI mind will willingly participate in appropriate experiments on its mind — as I would personally, particularly, if as with an AI there would be opportunities to be rolled back to my prior state. “//terasemjournal


“Onward toward an ethical, beneficial, progressively advancing and maturing artificial general intelligence!”//singinst

The Minx Mandate ep. 3 – Minx singles out Ben Goertzel, ‘Singularity’ superstar//Revision3



Skynet is dedicated to changing the world. But we also realize that humanity plays a large part in that goal; nothing can be done in a vacuum. We truly believe that the best way to beginning the process of change is to affect the lives of each and every person that we can.”


“Geneva, 24 September 2008 – Global foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows rose in 2007 by 30% to reach an all-time high of US$ 1,833 billion, according to the World Investment Report 2008: Transnational Corporations and the Infrastructure Challenge(1) , UNCTAD´s yearly review of investment trends. The report was released today. The 2007 flows surpassed the previous record set in 2000 by some US$ 400 billion (figure 1), despite the global financial and credit crises which began in the second half of 2007.

However, the worldwide slowdown appears to augur lower FDI activity for 2008, the report says.

The upward trend in 2007 was apparent in nearly all regions and subregions of the world, and in all three economic groupings: developed countries, developing countries, and the transition economies of South-East Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) (table 1). (For regional trends in FDI, see UNCTAD/PRESS/PR/2008/031 to 035).

The stock of FDI worldwide reached US$ 15 trillion, according to the report. This represents the significant scale of the activities of some 79,000 transnational corporations (TNCs) worldwide which own about 790,000 foreign affiliates. The sales, value added, and exports of these affiliates are estimated to have increased by 21%, 19%, and 15%, respectively, in 2007 (table 2).”//UNctad





“The U.S. debt is roughly $10.6 trillion and the government spent $253 billion servicing it last year.”//reutersblogs

“The Human Rights Record of the United States in 2008 is prepared to help people around the world understand the real situation of human rights in the United States, and as a reminder for the United States to reflect upon it s own issues.”//window of China
“”The Central Banks (which charge interest to governments for the money they produce from out of nothing, with no labour or wealth involved) have secured these loans against your future taxes. Without even asking you, a substantial part of your future worth has been put up as collateral. What Central Banks do in a big way with countries, your local bank will replicate on organisations and individuals, using the same slight of hand to produce the funds they lend out of thin air.”Alternative Trading Network

“Whosoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce… And when you realise that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate.”James Garfield”///uniteddiversity


“Today’s cyberpunk doesn’t answer these questions. Instead it offers power fantasies, the same dead-end thrills we get from video games and blockbuster movies like Rambo and Aliens. It gives Nature up for dead, accepts violence and greed as inevitable, and promotes the cult of the loner.

I find myself waiting–maybe in vain–for a new literature of idealism and compassion that is contemporary not only on the technological level but also the emotional. It would show the price that must be paid for solutions to our problems; it would see the computer neither as enemy nor god but as a tool for human purposes. I believe that this–not cyberpunk–is the attitude we need to get us into the 21st century.”//fictionliberationfront

"Cyberspace is a fantasy destination for white, middle class
suburbanites who realise that rural life is even more boring than
the suburbs and the cities are becoming far too dangerous."//wiretap
