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.
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.
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.
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.
