Why Alstry Blogs In The 3rd Person
When I created the character of Alstry...it was created from the perspective of a computer running an algorhythm.
It was clear a few years ago that Moore's Law as it applies to processors we now impacting computers/technology replacing human functioning.
THE PROBLEM: Almost everything in the CURRENT system depends on HUMAN functioning to operate and sustain itself...including financial assets which are primarily debt instruments of one sort or another owed by humans to humans.
In order for most humans to meet their legal obligations, OR financial assets to have value, it was necessary for massive numbers of people to have jobs....but in a world where machines replace human functioning, it becomes impossible for more and more to be gainfully employed.
In 9/09, a conscience choice was made to bailout financial assets....the assets primarily belonging to and constituting the wealth of the top 5% of society, BOTH Republcan and Democrat, even though it was becoming increasingly impossible for the masses/counterparty's of those financial instruments to meet their legal obligation because banks were cutting off credit....that same credit that bailed the banks and the top 5%.
Consequently, for the past two years, the distress for a HUGE portion of the society has been INCREASING while those holding financial assets never realized what was occuring around them to an increasing percentage of humanity.
Alstry was created from the perspective of a computer that cared for humanity.....as his fellow computers actively destroying most of humanity but left the decision makers, the top 5%, unable to perceive what was occuring around them.
Eventually, Alstry knew his fellow computers would stop bailing out the top 5%......and at that point it would be too late....because the only difference between the top 5% and the rest of humanity was computer algorhythms trading financial instruments back and forth.
In a world of machines, the Industrial Age goes bankrupt...EVERYTHING in the Industrial Age....even government which leads to illogical results. Like bailing out the top 5% and letting the majority of the nation suffering with higher costs and lower pay.
Eventually, the illogic becomes so obvious that it makes the insanity of the human participants open and obvious...such as government NOT having enough money to fund the FAA but sufficient funds to fund the ATF?
We could go on and on but soon the point will be clear.....in a world where the world is bankrupt, the question will arise as to who gets bailed out and who doesn't....who is a master and who is a slave? Who gets FREEDOM and who is a SLAVE.
If you look to current Industrial definitons of wealth....my guess is you are looking in the wrong direction...because change is upon us.
Udder World was created to discuss the HUMAN aspects of this convulsive change.....what happens to legal systems, economic systems, social systems, and political systems.....
as all of the above will change radically....and it will not be the end of the world, simply the end of a world as we knew it.
Soon, most of us will be Alstry as computers/Cloud Based Functioning take over more and more functioning....and you will understand as you start to see the effects of Zombulation.
