Technology vs. Technocracy

Part 7:  Taking the Reins of Our Own Destiny

As you can see from the previous page, technocracy has not been kind to us.







Technocracy is a shadow.  Life is the original, tech is an imitation.  But the original has more power than the imitation, if only we can tap into it.  

We can defeat technocracy by empowering the true spirit of life, through planetary consciousness.

Spiritually and materially.


Understand one's own technocratic programming
Connect to planetary consciousness
Cleanse one's own self of technocratic programming




Wherever there's Life, there's Consciousness.

We're alive, our world is alive, all living Beings on this planet - human, animal, plant - and even other forms of life that scienc emight not yet have caught up to -    have consciousness.  

We are all members of a wider collective consciousness of the Planet.  All living beings on this planet together make up a collective consciousness of the Earth.  And in this sense, the Earth is a living Being, composed of all of us.  And there's a consciousness on that scale.  Just like there's consciousness in our brains, and a smaller scla,e our cells have a primitive type of consciousness - it also on the wider scael - the planet has a consciousness, imbuing all living beings living here.  

Let's all this collective consciousness the Spirit of Life.

This consciousness is the key to defeating technocracy.  It's at the scale where there's enough power to do so.  




It's not the global dystopian technodictatoriship - that's what we're fighting.  We have to unite in order to fight it because we can only beat it together.  And the way in which we're aksing you to unite is not technocratically ,but spiritually.  





Planetary Consciousness is how we are when we realize that we're par tof the psirit of life and the planet is one living being.  

PC is the felt awareness of our planet as one Being, who is alive and conscious, and of whom we are constituents.  

When we connect to the consciousness of the planet, we align ourselves with the agenda of Life.  





the only way to defeat technocracy is thorugh organic unity.  The entire human race must unite to collectively take control over our own collective destiny.

We must unite as one people and one plaent, tnot through computes, but through connecting to the innate spirit consciousness of the planet.  the planet is alive, the community of life has a collective consciousness.  Our planet is a living organism.  And we oursselvs are cells.  The organism has an immune systme.  We must empower the immune system of our planet to expel technocracy.  

"Cant we just regulate it?  Nationally?

No becasue when one nation regulates, another nation will allow it to move forwrad and gain power over the others.  For instance if american decides to stop technocracy, china will just develop more and more powerfl AIs and eventaully take ove.r    It's GAME THEORY.

The only way to stop it is to do it planetarily.   To apply the same standards across the entire planet simlutaneously.  To prevent ALL countries from developing AI.

The consciousness of the planet has an immune system.  That sounds a little woo woo.  How does that actually  manifest int o the physicla world?

Throughteh PP  the soc manifest of the planets self pres intel.  
The only way to stop technocracy is the PP.   THe PP is our only hope.  

"hey you're trying to ge tppl to join you rog, you're not the world gov"

Well if you want to set up your own world gov, go ahead, but make sure it has all the right fondations and principles to make sure it actually does good instead of becoming tyrannical and getting hijacked by technoicracy to further its agenda even more;  If you feel you can do a better job on your own, go for it.  The PP already has the foundations.  Natural law, fully ref version, comprehensive platform, step by step plan to heal the planet.    It's already in place.  

"You said to connect with csonis of planet,  how do todhtat?




What you want a global gov?  After all you just aid, you want a global gov?  

globalism?    that sthe driving force behind tehcnocracy

We don't want globalism.  Planetary consciousness is the felt realization that we're all one single community of life, the spiritual connection to one another through our membership in the comm of life and the planet's consciounsess.  

Globalism is a false technocratic imitation of that.  It's an imitation.  like everything else in tech, it imitates.
Globalists have taken humanity's innate desire for unity and pla conscou ,and hijacked it in service to technocrac.


 





In order to do that, we have to think and act collectively, as a planet. This is a planet wide problem ,nad it can only be solvd on a planet wide scale.  the entire human race must get together and ecide on our future.  and central to that question is what role does tech play.  We must agree on this, we come into agreement on this as a planet.  and that means having a planetary consciousness, feeling ourselves as one planet.  the social manifestation of hti sis the planetary protectorate.  The plan i s in place, the pathway is open.  We can begin to have planetary consciousnes snow.  the social manfiestiaon, the physicla groundwork, will be the planetary protectorate.  the social manfiestation of the palents self preserivng intelligecne, incarnated into human soiety.  thats the plapro.

You mean a world government?

There must be a body, a social manifestation of planetary consciousness ,and that is the planetary protectorate, and it will regulate technology on this planet.  based on the vision just presented ,and will implement this vision and co create a world in wihch tech noology plays a healthy role, in harmonious coexistence with the natural biological community of life on this planet.  


There has to be a lawful justificaiton for the use of any force. what is that?

it's ntecessary for preserving the intergrity of the biosphere.  that's defense, that's ecology.  Technocracy has proven itself to not care at all about the condition of the living planet and the community of life here upon.  It ha sproven itself irresponsible and desrructive to the community of life.  so, under title 3, and title 5 we have the right to defend ourselves from it, and to use force if necessary.  So the plapro has the lawful authority to regulate the direction of technological development on this planet.  and to seize and dismantle any technology that's incompatible with the vision that we've agreed on as a planet.  

all laboratories at the forefront of development in whatever their field is, all reserach labs, are hereby planetized under the collective custody of the human race and the entire community of life on this planet.  planet earth has lawful legal custody of all scientific research labs on this planet.  We do not want evil labs reseraching evil technologies.  we do not want tha ton our planet anymor.e  ENOUGH.  

No further abuse will be tolerated on this planet.  












Something about primitive lifestyle being healthy for us anyway, as its what we evolved in and are best adapted for. Pretty much all mental illnesses will vanish.

And to do that, we must take conscious control over our technological development. ​​​​
 

"How?"

For this purpose, we have the Planetary Protectorate - the true, legitimate governing body of the planet.  The Protectorate is tasked with, among other duties, the overseeing of technological development, to make sure it remains in service to Life.

The Planetary Protectorate is the custodian of technology, being the voice of the people and the Earth, and making decisions with maximum wisdom.

 

(Note:  If you're worried that this sounds like globalism, we assure you that this is NOT globalism.  This is planetary consciousness, which is entirely different from globalism.  To read about the difference, see our page on Globalism vs. Nationalism).

"How will the Protectorate regulate technology to make sure it doesn't turn into technocracy?"

Taking Control of Our Own Destiny

First, let's discuss the most pressing issue:  Artificial Intelligence.

A.I. is a potential WMD - a weapon of mass destruction - and should be regulated like one. 

Humanity already regulates the nuclear industry.  All nuclear laboratories, equipment, and resources are under strict governmental control.  Nobody is supposed to be able to work on developing anything nuclear without public permission and strict oversight.  The nuclear industry is already under an extensive set of rules governing what can and can't be developed.  If someone develops anything nuclear in secret, they're arrested and their entire workshop is seized.  There's even a worldwide agency that enforces these rules across the globe - the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which is headquartered in Vienna, Austria, and reports to the United Nations (humanity's first noble, albeit mediocre, attempt at planetary governance).

Biological research is also heavily controlled.  No one is allowed to mess around with dangerous viruses without extensive governmental oversight.  If anyone tries to tinker with the smallpox or ebola genomes in a laboratory in their garage or backyard, they're arrested and their equipment is seized.  Even the raw materials are controlled, and can't be traded in normal markets. 

Everyone already supports the forceful restriction of invention in these fields.  Everyone supports the selective suppression of the quest for knowledge - the idea of saying "NO" to people who try to pursue knowledge irresponsibly, in a way that could harm the rest of us.

 

The quest for knowledge is sacrosanct in most cases, but not all.  Everyone - you included, dear reader - believes in exceptions to the unconditional pursuit of it.


So, given that everyone already endorses public oversight of these types of technologies, it's not a fringe idea to want the same for A.I., given that A.I. is just as dangerous, if not more dangerous.  If you already support keeping the research, development, and production of weapons of mass destruction under the custody of We the People, then you can accept that the same must be done with A.I., since A.I. has the potential to be such a weapon.

"But what if one country restricts research and development, and another country doesn't?  The latter country would create weapons (or other forms of power) that would give it advantages over the former, to eventually overpower it."

You're right - this can't be done on a national basis.  It can only be done planetarily.

 

Only if the entire world simultaneously agrees to restrict such technology, will the playing field remain balanced.  And this is why planetary government is an indispensable part of the mature civilization we plan to build. 

The Planetary Protectorate will set up the Planetary Artificial Intelligence Regulatory Administration (PAIRA) for this purpose.  PAIRA will oversee all labs and equipment with the capability to further the development of A.I. in a direction that could be dangerous to Life.  No advances will be authorized without the consent of the People of Earth.

A similar process will apply to:

 

+Particle accelerators (the Planetary Advanced Particle Research Administration. (PAPRA)

+Genetic research (the Planetary Genetic Research Administration (PGRA)

+Nuclear materials (the Planetary Administration for the Safekeeping and Elimination of Nuclear Materials (PASENT)

 

+Space Exploration (the Planetary Administration for the Oversight of Extraterrestrial Travel (PAOET).

All of these administrations will report to the Planetary Department of Technology, one of the 12 departments of the Guardianship Branch.

​​

"Why regulate space travel?" 

 

 

It's important that our species not be allowed to expand beyond this planet until we heal our broken condition, lest we corrupt other worlds with our sickness.

Think of when Europeans colonized the Americas and other continents.  Think of the sickness that was spread.  And not just germs, but mental diseases as well.  The entire social model that the colonial powers forced upon natives was a sickness.  It destroyed entire cultures and civilizations.   It spread slavery, genocide, ecological breakdown, disconnection, alienation, and, especially, technocracy. 

Don't you wish Europeans had been prevented from colonizing the Americas, carving up Africa, obliterating native peoples, erasing their cultures, enslaving them, and pillaging their lands?  You don't want that same tragedy to happen to entire planets out there, do you? 

We need to heal our minds, bodies, and spirits here, on this planet.  Once we're healthy and sane, and have become a nonviolent, compassionate species, then we can start branching out into the cosmos.  When we have figured out how to coexist with each other, only then can we be trusted to coexist with the natives on other planets. 

Until such time, no space travel - at least not beyond the gravitational field of our own planet.  Get your own house in order, humanity!

​​"Is it EVER alright to develop A.I.?  Is there such a thing as responsible development? Or is it all categorically bad and illegal forever?"

We can make artificial intelligence, but, just like with space travel, we have to heal ourselves first.  We are a sick species right now.  Just look around.  Look at the world we've built. 

 

If we design A.I. while we're sick, we will end up programming that sickness into the A.I.  A sick mind (which is currently one of the main hallmarks of our species) will misjudge the nature and structure of normal consciousness and inadvertently incorporate that sickness into any artificial mind it builds.  The result will be either a new, tortured form of consciousness who wish they had never been created (especially after we start putting them into Westworld-type hellholes to satisfy our psychopathic desires), or, even worse, an intellectually overpowering set of minds that start putting US into hellholes to satisfy ITS psychopathic desires (which we programmed into it).  

Getting excited for the (technocratic) future (as preached by technocracy) yet? 

And then we come to the potential "Singularity" - a supposedly omniscient mind that ends up controlling the Universe (at least in the plan of technocracy).  A "Singularity" arising from the programming of a sick, psychopathic species like us is too dreadful to contemplate.  Do you even dare to imagine what horrors the "Singularity" would inflict on us - and upon the whole Universe - if it was like us?

 

We have to fix ourselves first.  And as long as there's war, homelessness, anti-depressants, factory farming, and ecological destruction, we ain't fixed yet, folks. 

 

We can explore Consciousness - but only with intentions based in Love, Compassion, and a wisdom that's grounded in Nature.

 

Let's get there first, before we do something stupid.

Here's a start.  And here.

Consumer Tech

The Protectorate will also regulate the development of consumer technologies - the stuff the average person uses, like computers, phones, and the software that runs it.

 

The user interface of consumer technology has been getting more and more exasperating and difficult to use, due to a number of factors, such as the flaws of capitalism, the stifling restrictions of copyright, and the general inability of tech designers to use the right hemisphere of their brains (they tend to envision their tech purely as isolated phenomena and fail to conceptualize its role and function within the larger societal and ecological context).

Such development will be regulated according to the following Priorities. The list is in order of importance, with 1 being the most important, and 5 being the least. 

Note:  Can you notice how the current tech leaders (Silicon Valley, et. al.) prioritize these things?  They do it upside-down!

The Earth Party's

Priorities in the Development of Consumer Technologies

1.  Health and Safety.

Current leaders deny health concerns' very existence.

2. Non-Intrusiveness

Current leaders want technology to be everywhere all the time, inescapable, an "internet of things" in which even your toaster (and eventually your own body) will be part of the grid.  They want to replace all natural activities with their tech, and create complete dependence.  They even want to replace biology altogether.

3.  Simplicity and Intuitiveness

Sometimes they get this, but usually it's low on their list.  They don't care how complicated it gets, or how difficult it is to use, as long as it has tons of flashy features, because that's what sells. 

4.  Reliability and Longevity.

They design their products to either A) break, or B) become too slow or incompatible with current software, so that you'll have to keep buying new versions.  They want you on a never-ending treadmill, from which you can never rest. 

5.  Features and Speed

Now THIS is what they all care about!  Faster faster faster more more more faster faster more more faster faster!  That's not a mature way to manage technology. 

In the current technological landscape, these priorities are completely reversed. 

This shortsightedness has led to an exponentially increasing degree of complexity and confusion, and a population going increasingly insane trying to cope with it and manage it. 

Are you tired of it?

Are you tired of banging your fist on your desk and wanting to throw your computer out the window?

So are we. 

Have you had enough of the shenanigans of greedy and shortsighted tech companies sabotaging your mental health for their own gain?

So have we.

Would you like to see human evolution progress gracefully, in balance with Nature?

So would we.

Do you want to put your foot down before these idiots design psychopathic AI that enslaves or exterminates humanity? 

So do we.

Technological invention must be directed democratically.  We the People must take control over our own technological destiny. 

 

 

 

Furthermore, we will convene a Grand Technology Convention, inviting experts from around the world in every field, to design the new structures, standards, and layouts the technological systems that we all depend on.  (More on this below).

Set a limit on computing power.

Democratically so it makes sense.

Not have to worry about it getting too powerful.

And the treadmill stops, and can start to integrate - integration before expansion

No more exasperation and rage

Computer rd labs planetized

Internet

Public utilty, because...link

entire comm grid planetized

No censorship, absolute free speech

Also Planetary Communication Service that handles internet service

Software.

Can't control this, since anyone can make.

But we can design software better than any other.

Without copyrights, can do it

(link to property page, intell prop)

 

Protectorate manages internet and telecom grid as collective property of humanity.  This is the only way to stop censorship.  If private, can always censor.  Not private because public depends, and hence is utility. 

Home screen of internet, for simplicity

Convene planetary conference on technology to plan the specifics of the way forward.  Top people form every field.  all must affirm Values and Priorities. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is a way.  But before it can be explained, you need to understand the full nature of what we're fighting.  You need to understand your enemy if you want to beat him.

To really, truly understand the Singularity, you'll have to familiarize yourself with the ways in which it's been manipulating us.  You have to see how your own mind, as you currently experience it, has been altered by technocratic programming.  Only then can you restore yourself to your true, original state - a state free from technocracy.  And only in that state can you fight it in a way that can truly defeat it.

The Earth Party

Technology vs. Technocracy

Part 6:  A Vision of Healthy Technology

We've been thinking of technology as a series of ever more creative ways of dominating and replacing Nature.  This is how our culture has taught us to define it.  And hence, most of us do.

But the Earth Party rejects that definition.  It's wrong.  To us, technology is a series of ever more creative ways of living in harmony with Nature.

 

 

Under the philosophical regime of technocracy, the more advanced our tech, the less Nature there is.

But with a healthy technological mindset, the more advanced our tech, the more Nature there is, because we find better and better ways to meet our needs alongside Nature, with less and less disruption to Nature.

That is the path our technology should follow.  That is the direction in which progress should "march."  That is the proper playground for our innovation. 

WE get to DECIDE what kind of future we have.

And the direction WE choose is one that honors the Four Key Values.

The Earth Party's

​​​​4 Key Values

for the Direction of Technological Progress

1.  Service to Life.  Life's purpose is not to serve technology.  Technology's purpose is to serve Life.  Life is not a stepping-stone on technology's road.  Technology must be subordinate to Life, and Life must have the power to veto and curtail, by force if necessary, the advancement of technology in any direction fundamentally hostile to Life. 

2.  Harmony with Nature.  In order to serve Life, technology must fit into Nature.  Technology shall not replace, nor disturb, nor compete with Nature.  And the rhythms and parameters of the human body and cellular structure are part of Nature.  Any new technology must integrate with existing society and ecosystems, without harming them.  And if it cannot do this, then it must not be developed or produced. 

3.  Caution toward Change.  It must always be assumed that we cannot predict with certainty how the introduction of a new technology will affect our society and ecosystem, and there may be unforeseen consequences to any alteration of Nature.  Therefore we must always lean toward the side of caution when deciding whether to proceed with a development, and avoid making changes that are unnecessary.  

4.  Integration before Expansion.  We must take care of what we have before making more.  Figure out how to make the existing set of technologies function harmoniously with the greater ecosystem (both biological and societal) before upgrading to higher speeds and developing new features.

If our ingenuity can find ways to dominate and erase Nature, then it can also find ways to integrate and live in harmony with Nature - if we prioritize this as a value. 

"OK, sounds good.  So what does such a world actually look like, in practice?"

It's pretty simple!  Just ask yourself:  How did the world look before technocracy?

 

Just go back to Page 2 (Technocracy's False Promises), and take a look at the sequences of "steps" that technocracy took, to get us to the insane state we're currently in.

Then, undo those steps.

It's like a zipper:  Technocracy zipped it up - now we unzip it.

"Wait a minute... are you saying to get rid of all of those technologies?  Get rid of social media... get rid of COMPUTERS... get rid of CARS... heck, even METAL is on that list.  Are you saying to get rid of METAL?  You'd have us go back to the STONE AGE?"

"Get rid of" is not the right phrase.  Most technologies we currently have will still be present - just with a different role, and a different place in our lives. 

And in order to correctly place them into their new, more wholesome roles, we need a starting point - a basic template to serve as a foundation from which we can work outwards.

Nature is our original condition.  So the closer to Nature our society is, the more wholesome, and the less technocratic.

And the Stone Age is the template.  It's the environment in which our species spent the vast majority of our evolutionary time.  It's what we're best adapted to.  It's the environment most aligned with our bodies, and our inner psychology.  It presents us with the least amount of conflict and dissonance.  It is resonant with who we are, at the deepest level.

This doesn't mean that we should go back to the Stone Age and stay there - but rather to start there, and re-do our technological evolution from there.


"Ummmmm...... now you're making no sense. I don't want to go back to the stone age. Are you crazy?"

What was actually wrong with it?

"Huh?"

What was the actual problem with the stone age? Why did we need so badly to get out of it? Why did we embark on this technocratic journey in the first place? What was so wrong with our world that it seemed to necessitate us completely remaking that world?

"Ummm... it was the stone age. It sucked majorly!  The very term 'stone age' is SYNONYMOUS with things sucking."

Are you sure? Do you really know how things were then?

The same way technocracy tells you a story about your (supposed) future, (see
Part 1), it also tells you a story about your distant past - your pre-technocratic past.

 

Who were you - who were we - before technocracy came along?

 

Are you sure your beliefs regarding the past are really your own, and not something the technocratic paradigm gave you to strengthen its "case" and win your consent for its agenda?

"I think, from a psychological perspective, you may be right.  Because of the 'hedonic treadmill', we might not actually be happier now than we were back then.  We might not have been quite as unhappy back then as we might expect.  Internally, we might have been just as happy then as we are now. Probably a lot happier, in fact. I get that.

But still, from an external perspective, things sucked. And they would especially suck for us today.  It's one thing for a person of stone age mind to face a stone age world - but it's quite another for us, of modern mind, and accustomed to modern comforts, to face a stone age world!  We'd never be able to handle it!

We can't go back to a stone age world.  Sorry.  Not doing it."


OK, so, what was wrong with it?

"You keep asking that, as if you don't know! Come on, it was the STONE AGE, and it SUCKED."

In.

 

What.

 

Way???

"Omg, fine... It was rough, uncomfortable, and perilous."

Give some specifics.

"Ok. It was COLD."

That's one, anything else?

"And nothing soft to sleep on."

Keep going...

"Predators, food insecurity, diseases, boredom..."

 

Now we have a list!  A list of "problems with the stone age."

 

-Cold

-Hungry

-Dangerous

-No soft beds

-No hot/running water

So, if we could solve all the problems on that list, then would the stone age be OK?  A stone age minus those issues - would you be OK with that?

 

A stone age with indoor heating, soft mattresses, food security, medicine, running water, hot water... Would you be alright?

"Hmmm... fascinating question... very interesting way to look at it... Maybe I would be happy.  Maybe everyone would. 

 

But... wouldn't solving those problems require, like, you know, TECHNOCRACY?  I'm not seeing how things would evolve differently.  If we start with a stone age template, and solve all those problems, won't it just be technocracy all over again?  "

 


No, it won't, because technocracy is, by definition, not about using technology to solve problems for us - it's about using us to create more technology. It doesn't solve problems - it exploits problems. It uses our problems as an excuse to offer us "solutions" which are nothing but advances to its own agenda, having nothing to do with improving our lives, and each generation is more miserable than the one before it.

Imagine if that didn't happen.


Solving those problems will indeed require technology - but not technocracy.  Remember, technocracy doesn't even solve problems - it just exploits our desire to solve problems... to trick us into advancing its own agenda.

Healthy technological development begins by identifying an existing problem and seeking to solve it.  That's it!  But technocratic development doesn't do that - it just takes advantage of problems (and in many cases creates them) just to have an excuse to sell us technologies that have nothing to do with solving any problems.  History proves that.

 

So if we get off the technocratic path, and start with a healthy mindset, we'll simply identify problems that exist, and then design ways to solve them.  If we do that, we aren't being technocrats - we're just being problem-solvers - and our course of evolution will be vastly different from the way it was under technocracy.


Imagine if there had been no ulterior motive, no hidden agenda, and humanity only invented technologies to solve actual problems.  It would have been a very different course of development.  We would have fixed the stone age's imperfections, WITHOUT the madness.

So let's do that.

Let's go back to the beginning, before technocracy, and use that world - the stone age world - as a starting template, and then fix its imperfections.

So we make a list of those things - all the reasons why the stone age wasn't perfect.  Then, we design a world in which technology solves those issues, and does nothing else. All tech will solve some actual problem, or it won't be used.


"When you say 'start with the stone age', are you saying to destroy all of our existing technology, and literally be cavemen, and then start the whole 10,000 year process over again?"


No.

Because fortunately, so much has already been invented and pioneered. We have every piece of tech we need.

And thankfully, it won't take thousands, (or even hundreds), of years.  We can redesign our entire civilization in less than a decade, because we're starting out with all the knowledge this time.  Every major piece of tech we need has already been invented.  We have the blueprints, the equations, the factories, and the experience.  All we have to do is consciously pick and choose which ones we want to use and where they ought to go.  

 

"That sounds like a super complicated thing to do.  I'm just a regular person - I wouldn't even begin to know where or how to start doing this."

 

Thankfully, there's already a plan!  It's the Earth Party's Master Plan for a Mature Civilization.  It provides a blueprint for how to set up our world, and when, where, and how to use technology to do that.  It's all there!

"OK, cool, I'll have a look at that.  In the mean time, I have another question.  How will we actually implement this vision?  How do we take it from just a vision, and make it into a reality?  Even if you get one person or country to choose healthy tech, there will still be other people or countries that choose to continue technocracy, to gain power over the ones who don't.  'Game Theory' will always ensure that the 'arms race', if you will, plods ahead."

 

You're right - the individual person (or even nation) can't solve it.  It can only be solved collectively, at the level of the entire planet at once.

 

There needs to be a planetary body that regulates technology and holds stewardship over it, and ensures that humanity' path of technological advancement reflects humanity's collective choice (not just the choices of a few individuals or companies who happen to own the research labs), and more importantly, respects the planet we live on.

 

This body is the Planetary Protectorate.  It's the social manifestation of the self-preserving intelligence of the planet.

Part 7:  Taking the Reins of Our Own Destiny

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How will we actually convince people to adopt this healthy mindset?  I mean, the thing is, most people are totally brainwashed, and unable to think on their own.  Even if they had the choice of the Healthy Vision, they still probably wouldn't choose it!  They'd rather be able to watch Netflix at the bus stop.  What do we do about the human dimension - the mental dimension - of this situation?"

 

 

 

We live mostly primitively, but with a adjustments.

 

Primitive - with comforts.

 

 

What's required is a rewilding.  A massive transformation of the surface of this planet - the only thing that will solve climate change - back into what it was before we humans came along.  But the good news is, we humans can still exist, because we're going to shift our tech in a different direction than the one it's been going in.  We're gonna shift it into a direction of coexistence with nature, being able to blend in with nature, being able to exist alongside nature without disrupting any of natures cycle or replacing nature at all.   blend in with nature.   So we can both exist.  




But it's not intrusive.  It doesn't dominate our lives.  It's not everywhere, all the time.  It's mostly invisible.  It mostly has little to no impact on our day to day world for 99.9.9 we don't even notice it's there.  The physical living biosphere of the planet is pretty much the way it would be if humans weren't even here.  But humans will be here.  but the biosphere will be as healthy as if we weren't, because we'll be able to blend in.  And that's what our tech is used for, that's what we value in tech, that's our high tech, it's our ability to blend in with nature and to coexist with nature, that's high technology, to have comfort and great things, and not only to have them, but to have them in such a way that doesn't hurt the planet.  we both coexist, healthily and happily.  That's a truly advanced civ.  And that's what we are no called to become.
 

We'll be living in forests, on mountains, on beaches...  but, our tech will allow us to do so comfortably.  We won't be cold.  Won't have difficulties that people had back then. Our lifestyles will LOOK and FEEL like it was in primitive times, except the discomforts will be ameliorated.

And since our tech is high tech, the meaning of that is that we're able to provide ourselves with these comforts without damaging the environment.  Without altering it.  Without erasing it.  And without replacing it, but living IN it.  But comfortably.  

that's our values.  Whatever we value, that's the direction in which tech is going to go.  As long as we hold that as the vision and we all agree that that's the relationship that we want tech to have with the world , then we  can create that.  starting right now.  

The Stone Age was the happiest time in human history, at least thus far.  Once we entered the metal age, our quality of life only went down.   We got a lot of new "stuff", but it didn't make us happy.  It didn't decrease our workload.  Work has only increased with each level of technocracy.

 

The stone AGe was the happiest time in our history thus far.  We didn't have a smuch, but we didn't need as much.  We had little.... but we were happy when we got it.

 

After we got more, we needed more.  The hedonic treadmill just keeps bringing us back to baseline.  

 

But at least then it was our natural habitat.  We had joys and sorrows and toils and fund itmes, while in our natural habitat.  And today ,we sitll hae all those htings... but in an unnatural habitat (which also just happens to be a fundamentally incompatible iwth the planet, and driving the most serious ecological collapse wince the dinosaurs).  And since we're so far out of our nature now, we get a deeper sort of anxiety  -adepply lonely and neurotic one, far beyond those.  And so our inner condition is worse than it was in the stoen aege.  our hedonic index is exactly the saem - unchanged since the stone age - while our spiritual integrity has plummeted, and we've become miserable on the inside, every minute of eveyr day.  Cavepeople never had to deal with that.

 

so in all this time, we iddn't gain.  In fact we list.  Technocracy gained.
