The following is an attempt to summarized some of the key points from an excellent article written by Jeremy Naydler (New View magazine Dec. 2018). Quotations are directly from Jeremy’s article and are for the purposes of research and education.
The Internet of Things (IOT) is a precursor of the Internet of Thinking (IOTK). The 5th generation mobile phone network (5G) provides the massive and unbelievably powerful data transmission system infrastructure needed by the IOT and IOTK and thus the dangerous world of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) and Artificial Super Intelligence (ASI). Thus, although 5G will provide a supreme step forward for mobile phone users, its primary task is facilitation of the super-technologies mentioned above. All can aptly be described as a massive Global Brain.
From the above we can assume that with 5G we not only have “an improved telecommunication system, but rather a new ‘system of systems’ – the infrastructure of electronic totalitarianism.”
We human beings will increasingly find ourselves living in relationship with a vast and powerful global electronic intelligence – far beyond what we already experience. Even the simplest of daily tasks may well require our interaction with it.
“The electromagnetic energies that we have summoned, and which promised to give us new powers, now appear to be overpowering us, carrying us down into an Underworld realm of hellish entertainment and distraction, of illusion and disconnection from the reality that really matters – the reality of nature and the spiritual order that infuses nature, the reality of fellow creatures with whom we share our world, living in soil and sky and walking the Earth beside us.”
“We must ask: Does the Earth need an electronic ecosystem? Is it going to benefit in any way from being irradiated with millimeter waves? Is there actually any need at all for 5G? Can we even remotely conceive that 5G is the answer to any of the pressing ecological, social and spiritual problems that face us today? We stand at a dreadful threshold, and yet surrender to despair cannot be the right response. What can we do?”
In a few days I will follow up with some positive suggestions based on Jeremy’s article.
