[Allow me preface this article by saying that what I have written is highly speculative. I am not endorsing or championing any particular policy, simply musing on future possibilities.]
There is currently widespread anxiety about the disruptive and dangerous effects of rapid technological advancement. AI, robotics, self-driving vehicles and other inventions threaten to make human labor obsolete. Social media, dating apps and pornography are destroying traditional human interactions and relationships. Perhaps most frighteningly, scientists are now making strides towards creating machines that can read people’s minds, even potentially against their will.
“Technology allowing our thoughts and feelings to be translated into a digital form – and shared – is already a reality. Brain computer interfaces (BCI) allow us to connect our minds to computers for some limited purposes, and big tech companies including Facebook and many startups want to make this technology commonplace.
For those of you terrified by the prospect of technology recording – and broadcasting – your opinions of the boss, your secret fears, or anything else – relax.
At least, for now.
BCIs are currently not sophisticated enough to collect such granular information. The data they can gather is more based around measuring the physical movements people want to make or their emotional state. But, as machine-learning algorithms become more sophisticated and BCI hardware becomes more capable, it may be possible to read thoughts with greater precision.”
While the technology is still rather limited, given the recent rate of technological advancement, this should not give us any comfort. It is not implausible that within a few generations it will be possible to monitor the thoughts of all mankind, and, if the current globalist system is not reformed, to punish those whose thoughts contain any “hate.”
The likelihood of this nightmare situation is increased if we consider the concept of the “singularity.”
“The technological singularity – also, simply, the singularity – is a hypothetical future point in time when technological growth becomes uncontrollable and irreversible, resulting in unfathomable changes to human civilization.
According to the most popular version of the singularity hypothesis, called intelligence explosion, an upgradable intelligent agent (such as a computer running software-based artificial general intelligence) will eventually enter a ‘runaway reaction’ of self-improvement cycles, with each new and more intelligent generation appearing more and more rapidly, causing an ‘explosion’ in intelligence and resulting in a powerful superintelligence that qualitatively far surpasses all human intelligence.”
Put more simply, once AI surpasses humans in the ability to innovate, technology will advance at an exponential rate. If this technological singularity were to occur, it seems likely that sophisticated mind reading technology would not be far behind.
Such technology would totally transform what it means to be human, as no part of the psyche would remain private. We should therefore view such a possibility with complete horror.
Yet what can be done to prevent the technological singularity? Perhaps an authoritarian global state could effectively prevent research into AI, but the current powers do not seem interested in doing this. On the contrary, they appear to be intent on promoting the development of AI. While there is, therefore, no plausible immediate political solution to the AI problem, it is possible that the very globalist system has a built-in feature that will lead to technological stagnation.
The dominant globalist ideology contains two contradictory beliefs:
1) humanity will enjoy unlimited technological progress, and
2) all the races of mankind are equal and must be amalgamated into one undifferentiated mass.
These two beliefs are contradictory because practically all modern technological advancement has been due exclusively to the efforts of the white race. The Oriental races are certainly able to copy and reproduce white technology, but it appears that the great leaps of innovation have come from the West. The equatorial peoples are obviously incapable of both innovation and imitation, and when left to their own devices quickly return to their natural primitive level. Therefore if the globalists get their wish and eliminate all distinct races through immigration and miscegenation, effectively “Africanizing” all of humanity, technological advancement will cease. I believe we can label this possible future event as a “reverse singularity” or “black singularity.”
The question then becomes, which singularity will come first? Will white scientists and engineers produce self-innovating AI within the next few years? Or will the white population become so tainted with admixture that technological innovation will become impossible?
And in all honesty, which singularity would be worse?
