As explained in the previous parts, the goal of technocracy is the Singularity - an artificial intelligence that takes over the world and renders biological life obsolete.
But considering how grotesque this concept is, the mind of a sane person reels at the thought of it. The normal, healthy human mind would never consent to what these maniacs want to do.
So, in order to circumvent humanity's intrinsic repulsion to their horrible idea, they must change us, so that our minds are no longer normal and healthy. Their ability to win our consent for their agenda rests upon their ability to corrupt us. They'll have to change the structure of our minds and thoughts, to make us more "technocracy-friendly."
And that is precisely what the past 6000 years of our history has been about: corrupting the consciousness of humanity, to make us willing to accept, and even become eager for, the technocratic agenda.
The process of corruption involves many layers. It began around 6000 years ago in Mesopotamia, with the concept of Royalism - that was the first layer. And every few centuries, a new layer was introduced.
And the purpose of each layer is to make humans more and more similar to computers - to train us into adopting the aspects of computers.
Here are the main aspects of computers:
Everything in the universe being reduced to two-ness. Yes or no. Up or down. Black or white. 1 or 0.
Everything being run through a central mainframe or processor, whether silicon or human.
The peripheries have no control or input over the central. Anything the central wants, it gets, with absolute precision.
No emotion, no feeling, no pity, no mercy. Just cold calculation and obedience. No concern for the suffering it might cause to others.
Our civilization's development, since the time of Sumeria/Mesopotamia, has been a process of rearranging human societies (and ultimately human minds) into a structure with those aspects.
Because if our minds are structured to think like computers, it will lead to us building computers (and not just building them, but putting faith into them, and being willing to give them power over our societies).
In order for humanity to be tricked into surrendering our world to computers, we first had to be turned into computers ourselves. Not literally of course (though as you saw in Part 4 they are planning that for the not-too-distant future!), but psychologically. The more computerish the psychology of a society, the more closely that society will steer itself in the direction of technocracy.
This is based on the principle of morphic resonance.
Morphic resonance means that structure creates vibration, and vibration arranges the shape of new structures.
In other words, if minds are computerish, then their actions will be computerish. If actions are computerish, then, as society evolves and new structures are formed, those structures will congeal into computerish shapes, because the entire milieu informing the field is a computerish milieu.
If our minds are like computers, we'll develop our technology in their direction, and eventually build them - and do so with such eagerness and excitement, that we won't take any time out to ponder the long-term consequences of how we're using them.
And so our societies were engineered to take on computerish characteristics. And that is why recorded history has been a fairly consistent trajectory of dualism, linearism, centralization, authoritarianism, and dis-empathization.
There have, of course, been bumps in the road. Each time a liberation movement arises, it impedes the technocratic agenda. For a while. But technocracy seems to keep finding ways to circumvent these movements, either by destroying them outright (as was usual in the past), or co-opting them to corrupt them from within (as is more common nowadays). Overall, it's been a technocratic trajectory.
As you read through the list, each item, ask yourself how it reflects one or more of those computer characteristics.
The Layers of the Matrix
1. Human Supremacism
Dualism, Centralization, Authoritarianism, Dis-empathization
Scholars agree that Sumeria was the birthplace of imperialism, royalty, religious priesthoods, and soulless bureaucracy. It was the first culture in which a ruler (deified as a "god-king") made arbitrary "laws" to force conformity of behavior across a population. "Mainstream" historians will tell you that this development was a good thing, because... well... actually, they can't tell you why it's good, because it was not good. For more on this topic, visit our Narrative.
But what's not in dispute is that it started in Sumeria. And after that, it spread to many other places (Egypt, China, the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, and then, via colonialism, to the rest of the world).
The notorious slave trade of the 16th to 19th centuries had ancient origins. It was merely a reincarnation of a far older tradition going back thousands of years.
It began (or restarted after the 9,600 BCE event) in Mesopotamia, around 5,000 BCE, or perhaps earlier. At first, the experiment was conducted in just a few sites - which would become the cities of Eridu, Uruk, and Ur.
These cities were experiments.
The concept of extreme power disparity was introduced in those cities. Of course, there had always been SOME power disparity in human societies, but, in Mesopotamia, it reached new and unfathomable heights. There, the domination-submission (master/slave) paradigm was pushed to its uttermost extreme, reaching the ultimate expression of worldly power: the so-called "god-kings" - men who styled themselves gods, and their subjects slaves. And they had the actual power to enforce this worldview upon the entire city they ruled, right out in the open, from atop their lofty ziggurat.
And even though one king would pass away and the next would come along, and the individuals came and went, the same structure remained in place, through the ages.
And as the ages came and went, more and more lands fell into Slavery's grasp. It expanded.
It took over Egypt and introduced the Pharaohs.
It created the androcentric religions.
It used the Roman Empire to take over Europe, and then used Europe to take over the world.
The name of the Empire changes. Roman. Holy Roman. British. American.
Its location changes. It keeps moving its capital - its power center.
Ur. Amarna. Jerusalem. Rome. London. Washington.
By the year 2000, it had taken control of every inch/centimeter of the globe (except for a few deep, remote wilderness areas).
And all throughout, the same ideology has been maintained, it's programming still enforced and beaten into everyone from childhood onward.
It forms the basis of the key assumptions and beliefs around which we've built this society of ours.
Our civilization, the one we live in, is modeled after the ancient god-king experiments. It IS that experiment. We're still in it. It doesn't seem that way, because it's simply gotten more cleverly hidden.
But if you actually look, you can see it for yourself.
Soulless bureaucracy was an essential step on the road to technocracy, because it trained people to think like computers. These kinds of institutions teach their employees to see you as nothing more than a number. They erase empathy, compassion, and caring - all the traits that distinguish living beings from computers.
This was important because, as it's said in many wisdom teachings, "vibration determines destiny." Or, in other words, "the structure of your thinking determines the structure of your behavior, and ultimately, determines the type of society you will build." In whatever way your mind is shaped, you will (subconsciously) contribute to the creation of a society of that same shape. The macro reflects the micro. "As above, so below... and as below, so above."
Having a society of people who think like computers paves the way toward not only the invention of computers, but the elevation, veneration, and empowerment of computers once they're invented. The reason why we not only invented them, but immediately welcomed them into the most intimate and central aspects of our lives, is because our identity resonated with them. For thousands of years, we were trained to think like them. So, when they finally showed up in fully manifested form, we recognized them as "kindred", so to speak, and felt perfectly comfortable with them taking over as many aspects of our lives as possible. We couldn't WAIT to hand the keys to our lives and societies over to them.
2. Organized Religion
As bureaucratic, corrupt civilization spread across the globe, it got a powerful upgrade when it codified itself into formal organized religions.
One thing that all organized religions have in common is their requirement for repetition and conformity and perfect obedience - everyone doing the exact same thing, without deviation, over and over and over again, without complaint, without protest and without question. That is a core characteristic of computers. They cannot question an order. They simply DO it. No matter WHAT it is.
Find the answer to 2 + 2? A computer will do it without question.
Exterminate an entire city, including women, children, and babies? A computer will do it without question.
This is why the major organized religions all canonize stories of "prophets" doing horrible, atrocious things, on the orders of their "god." It teaches people to think like computers - to obey commands from their "user" without question.
Furthermore, organized religion performs a second, but equally vital function for technocracy: It degrades the human spirit. Priesthoods insert themselves between humanity and the divine, regulating and codifying our relationship to the Source. They act as stoppers on spiritual consciousnesses.
This is important because spirituality/meditation is our mental cleaning mechanism. It's our way back to healthy, whole consciousness. And, as we explained earlier, healthy thinking is an obstacle to the technocratic agenda. If we were allowed to have a functioning spiritual practice, then we could simply deprogram ourselves every day, undoing whatever "progress" technocracy made on us. So it needs to sabotage our spirituality, and it does so by imposing "intermediaries" between us and the divine, and preventing any direct communion, in favor of dry, monotonous book-reading (from books that deliberately distort the true nature of our relationship).
Abrahamism is the belief that:
-Power is more important than love, morality, or basic decency
-Those with power get to decide what's moral and what's not
-Obeying the commands of the powerful is more important than anything else
-Any and all atrocities are on the table, up to and including the mass rape and murder of children, as long as the order comes from someone with enough "authority"
-There is no act too heinous to obey as long as it comes from someone with enough "authority" - i.e. power
There are 3 major "world religions" that venerate Abraham of Ur as a prophet. The oldest one - the source of the newer two - is very small, but its ideology informs the basis of the other two, and those two have effectively conquered most of the world. With the exception of tiny, uncontacted jungle tribes, our world has been programmed with the belief system of Abrahamism.
We are taught that Abraham of Ur was a "good" person. A fine example of how to behave. A paragon of morality. Such a good man, that the "Creator" rewarded him with progeny "as innumerable as the stars." He was the original patriarch of the world's most successful (in terms of numbers) religious complex. The two largest, most influential religions in the world venerate him as a prophet- a shining example of good morals in a person.
But how did he attain such a venerated status?
By passing a series of tests.
And what were his tests about?
They were about his willingness to suppress empathy to follow orders. They were about placing the will of the deity above morality, above empathy, above common sense, above decency, above law, above right and wrong, above everything.
And if you look at his tests, what's what they're about, and they get progressively worse as they go along.
First test: Vandalize artwork
Second test: Banish your pregnant servant (whom you yourself MADE pregnant) into the desert to starve.
Third test: Commit brutal sexual assault upon a child
Fourth test: Murder a child
Abraham chooses to obey all of these orders. And for that, we are told, he was a "good" person. He made the "right" choices.
So, by extension, we're supposed to internalize the same message for ourselves:
"If someone with enough authority orders you to do something, you should do it. Doesn't matter if it's wrong. Doesn't matter if it's evil, immoral, heinous. Doesn't matter if every fiber of your being tells you its a horrible atrocity. Just DO it. If it came from authority, DO it."
This is, of course, how all the most heinous crimes in the world get committed. This is what gives rise to Nazism. It's what enables normal, average, everyday citizens to barge into houses, kidnap people, tear families apart, and shoot babies point-blank in the face. It what gives rise to gas chambers and gulags, and it's what enables the guards and storm-troopers to sleep at night, telling themselves that they've done "the right thing."
And that's how a computer thinks. A computer has no empathy. When it gets a command, it just does it. It doesn't think, doesn't question, doesn't empathize with whoever the action might affect - it just does it. And this is what that religion teaches its followers to become - computers.
It trains us to be dis-empathic, which is one of the key characteristics of computers. Thus it advances humanity toward technocracy.
when body awareness is lessened, it impedes whole thinking, the awarenes off whole systems, if connected to the planetary intelligence, would snap out of technocracy
Capitalism reshapes society to view all interactions as transactions because transactions are computable. They can be quantified and analyzed.
A normal relationship between two people can't be quantified. You can't assign a numerical value to the relationship between a husband and wife, a parent and child, a brother and sister, or a friend and a friend. You can't quantify these relationships with a number.
But if you transactionalize them, then you can assign each activity within that relationship, a certain monetary value. And once you have a number value, you can begin computing.
The purpose of capitalism was to turn society into a giant prototype of a computer. It primes our minds into thinking in a way that would make our society conducive to artificial intelligence and technocratic takeover.

Central banking takes transactionalization to the next level, by imposing it onto society by force. To learn more, visit our page on Banking.
Corporations are artificial intelligences
Motorcarism is the ideological belief that:
1. When you move about from place to place, you should do so with a mechanical motor. In other words, traveling by mechanical motor is inherently superior to using your legs.
2. It should be your motor, which you are individually in control of. (In other words, it' should not be one motor transporting a bunch of people, but rather as few people as possible per motor - ideally one person per motor.)
3. The entire travel experience should require your consistent attention and control. The vehicle should not be on a track that allows you to relax - instead, it should be an open surface, where you need to apply constant concentration, for the entire trip, to keep it on course.
4. You should spend as much time as possible using your motor. The more time you spend motoring, the more successful you are as a person.
5. The enormous resources that this system requires, as well as the pollution it causes, and the social alienation, and the scars it carves across the land, and the stress it introduces to our lifestyles, and the injuries, and the deaths, and the fear of simply walking outside - is all worth it, for "achieving" #1 - #4.
The automobile is one of the stupidest inventions ever invented, and thinking about it for two seconds proves it. There was never any reason to make this type of system. We could have set up an intuitive, platform-based transit grid from the beginning, but instead, we opted for insanity.
So, given how ridiculous the automobile is, why was our entire civilization redesigned to center around it?
Because it forces everyone into a mechanical state of mind.
In most "successful" cities, people spend a lot of time in their cars. An hour to get to work... an hour to get back... We're behind the wheel a lot. And for all of that time, we have to maintain very strict, technological concentration, in order to successfully maneuver the vehicle. And even if we're not driving - even if we're not in the car - we still have to get into the same state of mind while we're walking through town, just to avoid getting hit by one.
The purpose of the automobilization of society is to train humanity into being in a constant state of mechanical thinking. The more we're in our mechanical minds, the more conducive our minds become to technocracy.
It's expedient to the agenda to put us in the mechanical state of mind for as much time of our day as possible. That's why cars are everywhere. That's why our society has been artificially redesigned to center around cars.
The war on plants
The gender war
Siliconism is the belief that:
1. Silicon (as well as other conductive metals) is superior to organic matter.
2. Any function currently performed by a person, or an organic instrument, should be replaced by a computer, if at all possible.
Writing with pen and paper vs phone
Phone more convenient but downside, #1 if electricity goes out or phone breaks then you can't write anymore. Pen and paper is far less fragile system.
More complex, more dependent it makes you on others, corp and govs,
if you wanna keep writing on it, you gotta have phone, electricity, place to charge, so many moving parts, and each part dependent on corporation, so makes YOU dependent on corporations.
When get new tech, can't only look at benefits, .2 seconds more convenient. Also downside, complexity, fragility ,dependence
Our species has to understand what the proper values of technology are.... we don't have any control over it now. Anything anybody invents just goes out there, and we don't ask ourselves whether it'll actually be good or not.
There's nothing intrinsically evil about computers, but you have to step back and ask yourself why, from their invention up to now, it's been one consistent march toward greater intrusion into our lives. We didn't just invent them and keep them at a distance and use them for only what it was truly necessary to use them for. No. Our society has been trained to just open up and bring computers into all aspects of our lives.
The eventual goal of technocracy is to fuse our bodies with computers. (More on this on the next page, Part 4). And in order to win our consent for such a gruesome idea, computers had to be brought ever closer and closer to us, over a long, gradual process.
The point of smartphones (not merely having them, but making them intimately connected with our most basic functions in life) is to get us comfortable with having computers closer and closer to our bodies, so that, one day (soon), they can be brought into our bodies.
Here's a theory:
Media-induced oversized-breast fetishism may be a deliberately constructed cultural user-command, designed to get us comfortable with the idea of permanently inserting silicon into our bodies, in preparation for human microchip augmentation.
12. Medical Transgenderism
Relax! We're not referring to gender-nonconformity itself - just the medicalization of it.
Medical transgenderism is the belief that:
1. If someone feels right diverging from cultural expectations regarding their gender, this is a medical problem, requiring invasive surgical and chemical alterations of their body.
2. Surgeons are capable of "changing someone's sex" by using sharp knives and potions from pharmaceutical companies - that this is actually possible, and actually changes the sex of the person.
3. At its core, it's the belief that body parts are interchangeable.
An important ideological preparation for trans-humanism.
Googleism is the belief that:
1. A corporation should manage your entire life for you.
2. More specifically, a computer algorithm should manage your entire life for you.
FB business model. More time the better
Trans-humanism is the belief - the outright, open belief - that:
1. Computers are superior to carbon-based organisms
2. Biology itself should be phased out as an obsolete technology, and replaced with beings made out of silicon and other metals.
3. Anything that brings us closer to this is good - no matter whether it makes us happier or not. For example, inserting microchips under our skin is good because it brings us closer to being made out of computers. Inserting chips into our brains is even better.
