In the graph, the Fermi Paradox stated by Mr. Fermi, of A-Bomb fame wondered why we don’t see intelligent life in the Universe. Fermi advanced that it could be because Physicists destroy all planets before that phase. Some ‘believers’ replied that it might be that the Earth is a single case, because it is the only planet ‘chosen’ by God. Now we know this is not the solution to the Fermi Paradox, as there are billions all over the cosmos and biological laws show life to be a systemic phenomena appearing always out of hyper-abundant carbon atoms. Again the Totalitarian principle that precludes the creation of black holes and strangelets precludes life birth.
And yet, we do NOT hear any communication; not a single life planet passes the threshold of creation of Accelerators, prior to the threshold of interstellar travel, WHY?
The Fermi paradox should be the most pressing question about our destiny as a species and ultimately the experimental proof Physicists deny about the dangers of CERN. It is now official that around 17% of stars have an Earth-like surrounding it and 27% a super-earth, which puts on the order of 4.7 billion the number of possible hosts to life. AND YET NONE HOSTS ROBOTIC LIFE OR INTELLIGENT LIFE with a degree of civilization able to emit radio-signals?!! Why? All radio-signals in the galaxy are caused by black holes or strangelet stars (pulsars). Why?! As we are in the TIMELINE of possible interstellar communication, something will happen or has happened to all similar Earths in this period of technological evolution that destroyed the parallel human-like species. What?!
Only two possible solutions to this conundrum are left, once we know the galaxy is filled with planets:
– The religious, theological ‘anthropic principle’. We are the first because God made the Universe for the homo bacteria to dominate.
– The scientific, statistical proposition of Mr. Fermi. In all those planets, Physicists blow us creating black holes, the dominant species of the galaxy.
The facts are clear and either one or other is the solution. If the first is truth, a goatkeeper of the bronze age resolved the meaning of it all. If the second is right in 2015 when LHC is upgraded we will all die.
Let us then prove the goatkeeper wrong with the simple equations of Francis Drake. SInce we are not unique, just ‘a mush over a lost rock in a corner of the Universe’ Schopenhauer.
In the next graphs we illustrate the scientific calculus according to present data of the numbers of habitable planets tha should be communicating at this point of time, in the Universe. It follows the famous 1961 Francis Drake eqution.
Earths all over the galaxy.
Goldilocks planets are those planets existing in zones where life is possible. As there are an immense number of stars surrounded by them – 1.700 million earths and 3000 million super-earths – and our planet is relatively young, the Fermi Paradox wonders why we do not see any sign of planetary or robotic civilizations in the galaxy, but only hear the radio-waves with the rhythmic tam-tam of black hole and strange stars. The cynical Fermi, father of the A-Bomb, stated that nuclear physicists blew all Goldilocks planets before they reached the technological state of interstellar travel. CERN could confirm this hypothesis.
Sorry biblical folks, the Universe is not made for humans. There should be 794 976 000 000 bn planets emitting radio-signals. But none is heard.
In any case the Drake Equation clearly rejects the religious solution to the Fermi Paradox – that of humans being unique.
But the conundrum mathematically proved by the Drake equation: why we cannot hear any of those 794,976.000.000 billion civilizations?
And so WE ARE LEFT WITH A SINGLE SOLUTION. Only the second solution, extinction by physicists, is possible. Since something extinguishes all of us in all those planets, before they communicate. We should be hearing some of those 794 zillions and we hear none. (1)
Thus, we won’t arrive to the technological evolution of radio-signals needed to leave a bleep in the Universe… We will die before that. When?
Radio communication of stellar size would require a much longer wave and hence a moon station coupled with one on Earth, which can be achieved this century. But we won’t survive the century to do it.
We won’t reach either the point of interstellar expansion in ships.
For this type of travel would require to create shields against high energy particles of enormous metal-weight for current standards – probably a lunching from the moon, on a machine constructed there. Probably well into the next century.
But e won’t reach autonomous robots and A.I. able to start a colonization of the Universe. We hear none…
Let us consider this possibility because now we have a more precise timespan. Experts consider that A.I. will exist within a century. A single robotic ship sent by humans wouldn’t count as it would not reproduce and hence colonize. But A.I., self-replicant A.I. is now in place. We can foresee it in 3-D printers, CAD design and automation of factories – the main cause of our labor crisis. And yet, not a single planet has made it to that phase either. Or else the Universe would be awash of robots and sounds of metal.
All this gives us probably a span of around 50 years to explain something else that cause our extinction.
Apocalypse doesn’t seem to be the robotic way, the terminator way, the matrix way, or else we would see millions of matrix like places on the galaxy. And there is none.
It means that we die very soon and NOT by robotics.
None has made it to colonize with other robots. So extinction happens in +99.999% of planets within decades or else out of those 1.7 billion, many would have made it.
A.I. is not the cause because if A.I. extinguishes man it would have expanded in the Universe and it is NOT ANYWHERE TO BE SEEN. ROBOTS CAN EXPAND WITHOUT PROBLEMS OF HEALTH. They should be here, there, emitting radio-waves. So the Span of time of our extinction is even shorter. It happens before terminator.
Between now and military A.I. already on the making with the take-off industry of drones, humans achieve self-extinction in +99.9999% of the parallel, fractal planets to this in which they evolve.
And this leave us ONLY 2 causes, only 2 possible industries that can extinguish us and DO EXTINGUISH US, in 99.99999999% to be more precise of the planets of the Universe: nano-bacteria and black holes.
OF COURSE, the planet could be extinct by external black holes, cosmic collisions, etc. But if that is the case, still probabilistically many other planets would have not collide with asteroids and so we would see them colonizing other planets at this stage of age of the galaxy. So what we look for is an event which is almost certain to extinct a planet – strange matter or black holes – and a type of human species WHICH WILL ALWAYS DO BLACK HOLES AS MESSIANIC ‘SCIENCE’ does.
The nano-bacteria case…
was first brought about by Mr. Bill Joy in wired and explained how soon goldiron nano-bacteria with gold dna and iron bodies, eating and replicating similar metal-species would suck in all the machines of the planet, and then convert us in grey-goo eating the metal of the Earth. This can come in those 50 years.
But if nano-bacteria extinguishes us, we can reason, metal-bacteria would evolve into organic robots, as once life appears, evolution should kick in. And this robotic race would be a superrace that would have expanded on the Universe very fast. It might also be that gold-DNA is not so easy to evolve but i doubt it. It is like us atoms and atoms evolve in different molecular structures. So if we humans find self-replicant gold-iron nano-bacteria that extinguish us in so many planets, some should have evolved into intelligent life and expanded through the Universe. And yet again, there is no robotic ‘metalife’ anywhere in the galaxy emitting radio-signal.
So this flawless logic leaves only a possible cause of our extinction in every planet life kicks in: black holes or strangelets at CERN when it goes full power in 2015. And yet a second point must be proved for not a single planet to show intelligent life: the determinism of the human mind who will always believe in techno-utopia and blow up the planet in search of some irrelevant particle. is it that so? are we that dumb everywhere?
The memetics of the suicidal species.
Thus, the second point to prove is the messianism of all human races which in all those planets will decide almost never to revise the safety standards of the black hole factory… How it is that possible? How can we measure the degree of ‘strong beliefs’ of humans that become extinct? By this i mean, is it so overwhelming stupid the choice of all human monkeys in all planets as to always risk their lives for the Higgs particle? can we prove that determinism?
Yes. The proof is obvious: Our radical failure in our suits and activism to stop CERN – only a few dozen scientists had enough courage to denounce it and no result was attained, as the entire planet sided with the black hole factory – means the belief in machines must be so strong in all monkeys that reach this scale of mechanical evolution that we never win the suit in any planet of the infinite fractal planets of the Universe.
And here is where the Fermi paradox resolves another paradox of these group of activists – why nobody took us serious in suits, books, films and various warnings? Because in every planet, the belief in technoutopia is rather absolute and so surviving planets are an infinitesimal number.
If there had been a mass of activists we could think many planets survive as the movement against CERN triumphs in them. So no black hole is done. So humans live longer or die to military A.I. or nanorobotics and in either case humans or robots communicate and colonize the galaxy.
Here you have in a ‘nutshell’ an astounding logical proof that we shall die within decades before A.I. takes over in all the planets in which humans existed.
Indeed, being humble enough at this stage of my activism, the most surrealist and astounding fact I have come to accept is that nobody cared and will care for a public institution trying to do the most dangerous nuclear explosives of the Universe with tax payer money to find some exotic particles of the zoo of sub-atomic systems.
This cuckoo fact leads us to the science of memetics: humans are slaves of the religion of technology in all the places of the Universe. Nobody doubts of technology and money, the two engines of this tragedy. As someone said of the germans that mastermind this machine ‘some germans do not believe in god but all believe in the bundesbank’. All men believe that to make machines is the destiny, goal and undoubted utopia of mankind. So in all planets we are defeated and in all physicis do make black holes and solve the Fermi paradox.
Now as all inconvenient truths power ignores the Fermi Paradox despite making so much propaganda of the Earthlings and Higgs particles. When a problem is too big or defies our ‘memes’ and beliefs we simply censor it. Good luck. The problem will not go away because we hide our head on the hole.
The Fermi paradox should be debated and taken seriously as a security problem and experimental proof of the easiness by which ‘human-like species’ extinguish themselves. It certainly eliminates the pretension of CERN that there is no experimental evidence of our possible extinction by the LHC.
Indeed, one of the alibis of CERN and those who work on the LHC is the fact that there is not and seemingly there cannot be any proof that the machine will produce black holes and strangelets, the seeds of strange stars called pulsars, able to devour the Earth and extinguish us, when in 2015 is switched on to full potency beyond the theoretical barrier of formation of quark condensates and B.H. beyond 10 Tev (today the machine works only to 1/2 potency).
Now there is one: the Fermi Paradox.
Now as surrealist as this theme might be, it is a fact recorded by history that all the parents of the nuclear industry are ‘all for it’. Indeed, the Fermi Paradox was ratified by the 3 parents of the Nuclear industry and its increasingly more powerful bombs. Mr. Fermi’s prophecy stated the obvious: all planets become black holes as physicists explode them. Mr. Fermi father of the A-Bomb, indeed said that there is not extraterrestrial life because physicists explode all planets before life can escape. But this was also the thesis of Mr. Teller, the Jewish father of the H-bomb fame, and biggest lobbyist for weapons in America, who went a notch further asking Eisenhower to start a Nuclear War first, just in case…
He also ‘discovered’ the so-called MAD strategy of Mutual Assured Destruction, a surrealist ‘logic concept’ to pump the military industry – that if we made enough H-bombs (who he had patented), we would be so afraid of using them that this was the best path to peace.
He became the model for Dr. Strangelove, an ‘anecdote’ i know first-hand as I befriended his scriptwriter, Mr. Terry Southern during my years at Columbia University (also of easy rider fame and the main ‘influence’ on my surrealist film on the theme, quantum roulette, which is excerpted in this blog). Finally it is also the thesis of Mr. Hawking in his last declarations…
And it was also the opinion, with certain cynicism of Mr. Wilzeck, the nobel prize who made the mathematical calculus of the strong force that will make quarks coalescence together.
Soo one can say that the 3 fathers of the Nuclear industry are ‘all for it’ and yet we revere them as masters of the Nuclear industry – and that is the surrealist, absolute arrogance and stupidity of man. Only Einstein seemed to understand better:
‘2 things I deem infinite the Universe and the stupidity of man, and I am not sure of the latter’
‘Those who impose truth with power will be the laugh of the Gods’
The other Solution to the paradox. The planets that make it. Castalia.
Now, the paradox has only a second solution. We do not see robotic life, which is interesting, curious not to say the least, and conclusive respect to the black hole theory. Black holes and strangelets kill us all.
Except those planets which i have called in honor of Herman Hesse who imagined one of them, ruled by artists not by scientists, hence dedicated to evolve the mind of man not that of th machine – Castalia.
Castalias survive as erehwon do, because men realize machines’ evolution will kill them and stop and also DONT COMMUNICATE.
i have felt for Castalia all my life… I have imagine Castalia in eternal moments, existence without borders, in time and space, immortal planets with eternal future, without limit – in that black hole.
At this stage of my life i recognize i dont live in Castalia, that as much i know.
But i did calculate, a theme i shall treat in the article ‘6D’ on the calculus of futures, the probabilities of such planets. And I must say, there are enough castalia in this universe to fill happy… and in some of day, we do stop CERN (-, people self-similar to us, in a planet with beings self-simlar to you…
And so i give you the solution to the Fermi paradox, ‘where there is cosmic life?, intelligent cosmic life?
In castalias. It is life, it endures, it goes beyond the limit of cerns and it is INTELLIGENT, unlike the people of this planet, or perhaps ETHIC, to me two self-similar concepts of an equation of complexity called the survival function, or top predator function, beings with maximal information (intelligent) and maximal energy (force), in balance, e=i, which maximizes, Max. E x Max. I… the definition of ethic information and beautiful energy-space. But that is of course… the jargon of the 5th dimension… Sorry then, let us return back to this non-intelligent, non-ethic, non-beautiful planet, with yes a lot of energy to bring us death (max. E x Min. I), and its creators, or rather destroyers, the physicist at cern Because even if i dream often of castalias i am on Earth.
Visual ‘proofs’ of our beloved MAD scientists.
So back to the Earth in the next excerpts from quantum roulette, you can see at ‘face value’ our 4 ‘heroes’ of the military-industrial Complex, all of them ‘for it’. The images you will see belong to a film quantum roulette which I did in Los Angeles, initially with the help of WME, the biggest agency in town, till they realized this was actually ‘real’. So after the suits and pressures from politicians the project was cancelled and I finished by myself. Needless to say it only opened in a festival worldwide, ‘the globians’ in berlin, because as the curator, Mr. Poltzer, founder of IDM pro put it – here I am the only guy to decide. In any other jury you will be censored because all must be politically correct or someone protests. I indicate in which minute we have them doing their declarations in case you want to save time.
In the next video we illustrate the 3 ‘ages’ of increasing power of Nuclear Bombs, A-bombs H-bombs and Planetary bombs, with a brief account of the evolution of the Nuclear industry, in its increasing pursuit of the equation of death, including the original footage of Mr. Fermi’s famous paradox… at minute 2:
In the same video in minute 7.10 you can see the father of the H-bomb, Mr. Teller, considering the need of an H-bomb, because ‘we can do it’. In the next video that explains the nature of Mass bombs (M=Ec2), he starts the excerpt showing his ‘disappointment’ with the A-Bomb because it had not enough power. So he felt motivated to make a bigger H-bomb:
Here you can see Mr. Hawking at minute 2, explaining us his motivation to push the creation of Black holes at CERN – to get a nobel prize, and the downside of it – if he is wrong we shall all become liquid spaghetti:
He has accordingly placed the clock of the end of the world two minutes before doomsday.Easy prediction, since you can always predict what you do. What about not doing anything to blow up the world Mr. Hawking, so you don’t need to warn us about it?
Finally in this video you can see also at minute 2, Mr. Wilzeck who signed the ‘safety’ release of the LHC explaining why he did it – as if he is wrong and blows up the Earth, he won’t be blamed:
But could we humans possibly change the fate of the Fermi paradox? Potentially we can, because the only solution to the paradox which has a positive life-preserving outcome is the non-evolution of the machines of the Singularity age. If a planet doesn’t worship the tree of technology but the tree of science, it will survive with man as top predator, but then again, it won’t develop intergalactic complex communication technology, but lie ever happier and unknown around a planet with no signs of complex technology. This is the only positive, humanist solution.
Could it be implemented on this planet? To understand that we have to go deeper into ‘knowledge’ of how the future is created (and we mean created, we know how it is ‘not’, by doing singularity machines).
In fact evolution and the objective understanding on how the future is created, shows this is most likely outcome, as the experimental evidence of the Fermi paradox also shows.
The singularity machines.
The Fermi Paradox is well known to specialists who study the non future of mankind in a world in which weapons of mass destruction keep being researched without limit, and it inscribes within the larger view of the Singularity age, or final age of the Industrial Revolution, when energetic and informative machines become ‘organic’. So we create mass-bombs, self-feeding, autonomous bombs, strangelets and black holes that can extinguish us. And we create self-feeding, autonomous robots, military A.I. that can also extinguish us.
Those are the ‘informative’ and energetic ‘singularity’ machines, whose awesome jump in energetic and informative capacities can extinguish us; since death is the ‘breaking of the balance and symmetry’ between the energetic and informative elements of any complementary system of the Universe, due to an overdrive of energy and information. So we die in accidents and wars (maximal energy/ death), and we die by excess of information, of form (3rd age, warping), and so the Earth can die by an excess of energy (B.H. Singularity at CERN) or a rival top informative predator species (military A.I.). And science is evolving both with the excuse of knowledge.
Thhe singularity age is now happening with the advance of information adn energy machines that vastly overpower us, but our industrial civilization has accepted it under a false premise, which as usual follow Nietzsche’s dictum ‘the commonest lie is that in which one lies to himself’ – that machines are good, abstract and the Universe a mechanism with only human intelligence…
The Wilczek paradox.
Or as Nobel Prize Wilczek, Amici Curiae of CERN in our suits to this company put it, and we recorded on video, ‘It was easy for me to sign a zero risk statement, because if something happens, then…’ and he laughed (who is gonna blame it, was the implicit end of his sentence’) – see video at the end of this post, in the visual part of it.
So because the proof can only be our extinction, the people who will be always blamed either of being catastrophists (if we survive) or of dying without recognition (if we are right and the high probability of an extinctive event ‘becomes’) were those who showed the ethical point of view.
This paradox is however a common paradox of History: those who make violence always win over those who make reason because death stops the argument. In this case, the LHC by going on-line without controls to ‘prove’ there were no risks (as Hauer declared to be the strategy to calm down alarmists) shows again the power of weapons over reason. And yet there is a clear proof at cosmological scale, of anthropomorphic nature that shows how easy potential human species can be extinguished and are probably extinguished.
There is not intelligent life despite the myriad of planets there must be in the galaxy. Do Physicists manage to create enough nuclear bombs to explode all planets before we achieve galactic communication’?
In this case the Fermi paradox is rejected as most truths are rejected by humans, on the shaky grounds of the ego-trip on the importance of our species. That is, we, human beings somehow are ‘special’ (pseudo religious argument) and too important to disappear at the hands of a mere lump of matter, which is false when you take not the subjective, anthropomorphic beliefs of religious people (the G. Bush talking to us:), or scientific people (who think they are the only intelligent species of the Universe.)
This refutal of the Fermi Paradox doesn’t even deserve a comment on a serious scientific blog, regardless of the growing number of fundamentalist jewish-christian believers in the ‘anthropic’ pseudo-religious dogma (if we exist in the Universe despite our fragility is because God wants us to exist, designing the Universe to that aim).
All this ‘hidden’ pseudo-religious beliefs are at the core of physics, with their arrogant statements about humans as the only intelligent beings, mathematics as the only language of God, the Higgs as the ‘god’s particle’ and their search for ultimate energies as the ‘Saint Grail’ of knowledge. No further commentary is needed.
A second proof, though of scientific nature, was the fact we had not seen more planets like ours. But it turned out to be just an experimental error now uncovered by more potent telescopes: the Universe is teaming with planets and so there should be billions of planets like ours. And yet none give us radio signals of life. Why? Obviously because people like those working at CERN manage to extinguish all planets before they discover ways of intergallactic communication, in their hidden arm race to find the meaning of mass-bombs.
The ‘physicists’… all for it. Sanctified mass-murderers.
There was a time in which humans knew what were ‘the physicists’. The mad scientist par excellence was the physicist, who was bringing us an atomic holocaust. Durrenmatt wrote a magnificent play on that title. But in the world of machines and children of thought we live in, without any sense of responsibility or caring for the future, all this is forgotten. Children cannot understand death, and one of the reasons CERN has gone without much fear is the civilization of children and visual death, which inundates our world. So children cannot distinguish between ‘real death’ and virtual one – and this one is ‘real’.
This is the Kindergatten world we live in. One where absolute evil can be the new normal as long as it is not taken seriously. The holocaust of Rwanda was tolerated because that week, according to chronicles the White House had covered the ‘theme of Africa’ with the South-African elections.If that is the case, and it seems the case of mankind, now doing robots that expel humans out of labor and war fields without also any opposition – if we men ‘are slaves because we believe we don’t reason’ (Aristotle), the Fermi paradox will indeed happen in all planets. As in all planets the technology will reach first the LHC that interstellar travel.
So in all it we’ll be built regardless of which lunatic physicist and which theory is designed to prove – a fractal, a continuum, a dark space, a travel to the past (in this case with the lunatic rants of Mr. Hawking shown at true face below)… or the ‘dragoons’ of multiverses of Mr. Arkami-Hamed.
What matters and explains deterministically the tragedy is the corporation, the military-industrial complex that will ALWAYS DO AN LCH BEFORE IT DOES AN INTERSTELLAR far more complex starship.
Moreover, as we explain in our blog on technology and economical evolution, http://www.economicstruth.com, at this stage the mind of man is devolving under the audiovisual influence of Televisions and the evil culture of death’, provided by the evolution of digital minds that hypnotize our children.
And again this is deterministic: motion hypnotizes the eye, a natural born killer that likes faster motion and red/energy colors. So as Televisions evolve in all planets, men become part of the a ‘neopaleolithic culture’, of selfish ego-trips, superficial, visual thought, where ‘images’ become knowledge and logic, time causality and survival, eusocial love disappears. The automatic process of degeneration of the human soul related in that technological blog, all too evident in this planet thus happens as machines evolve organically, in parallel, making humans in all planets retarded visual ego-trips of null causal knowledge and irresponsibility. They become the ‘staple food’ of the black holes they do trying to be like God. In the article on the Mayan prophecy we relate some aspects of the fractal, organic Universe that builds black holes. This is indeed going deeper the explanation of the Fermi paradox.
THe 2.7 background radiation is the temperature of a black hole of the mass of the moon. So all planets and moons might end up becoming black holes either by feeding on one, or by conversion by LHC ‘experts’.
In the past years since we lost the suits because the judges did not dare to judge, the physicists did not dare to defend CERN and so all was dismissed technically because as the judge put it ‘the destruction of the Earth would not be atttributable to the American Government’ I have come to accept indeed the deterministic aspects of our ‘technological civilization’ that degenerates us to a point in which we can collectively commit suicide almost in a fictional way – as our mind is built on fictions and ego-trips that forget the tender softness of the flesh.
Thus the kind of ‘zero generation’, of toddlers of thought that populate CERN will exist irresponsibly in all planets. The collective mind will be erased and LHCs will be built and tested by children with no sense of death.
Today The press no longer informs. The modern human is very much a child of evil. Like Mr. Bush, our president at the time we put the suits against CERN, an evil child; like Hawking, a childish ego, who according to his wife thought to be God, a man who obviously care little for life, isolated in its mind, a fictional character who thinks to be a ‘genius’ but has been long just signing books their acolytes cash in, as this group knows for obvious reasons (one of the main activists against CERN is the son of his closest collaborators)…
But in the world of marketing and corporations, of technology, the human is just a puppet of that destiny, written in the evolution of machines.
So we choose freaks for the kicks, they sell better.
Man in a chair genius of the century, kid with guitar – mr. Bieber genius of songs, ‘house negro’ working for bankers, Mr. Obama, leader of the world. The people who rule the world for corporations – the managers, technicians, marketers, sellers, own the subconscious collective of mankind. I have reflected a lot during this years how we have arrived to this situation. That wider view thought of a world ruled for corporations who care only for profits and the machines they build, provided in my other blog http://www.economicstruth.com is the only deterministic explanation of the fermi paradox at sociological level. That is, the sentence that starts my surrealist film on this theme, ‘quantum roulette’ ‘A technological civilization is based in the believe that if a machine can be done it must be done, even if it kills us all’.
the world is ruled by corporations and so the process of evolution and reproduction of machines is the essence of our technological civilization,
and so all industrial planets arrive to this absurdity – waiting for extinction for the sake of a machine and a series of job contracts and the excuse of a lunatic, 3rd rate physicist exploited by the industry of information.
Absolute evIL the antiparticle of Live, synonymous of death, is what the physicists of the nuclear industry represent.
Castalia, Utopia is thus the obnly solution.
intelligent humans that understand the conundrum and stop evolving machines as the meaning of existence, cheer for life and Gaia and don’t give signals to the external Universe.
Thus only Utopia, the 3rd solution, or techno-utopia, the LHC explain our incommunication. But we are not in utopia but in technoutopia. This means LHC will do black holes and they will evaporate us as they absorb our matter and grow. Since we, Earth’s homo bacteria have chosen NOT, utopia, that is a sustainable, world based in the fruits of the tree of life and man as the measure of all things. There is no doubt that the Earth’s new religion is the machine and we want to communicate and travel through space. We are not stopping the ‘economic system’. And yet we never arrive anywhere, we never colonize other planets, we end now, here.
The culture of the living Universe is basically extinct. It started with Plato and thought of the Universe, as I do in my work on General Systems Science, as an organism. ‘The World is a living being with a mind called Logos’. It meant that the logos of man was the mind of Gaia, also an organism. And we should care for both, for the Tree of Science. No doubt some planets are like that. Planets of flesh where men-like beings do not make machines. Erehwon planets that transcend beyond the dreams of our imaginations, but not here.
Instead we live in the culture of the machine – worship machines of energy such as CERN or information, such as CERN’s web and computers. So we will evolve technology to its limits and find ourselves with Fermi’s solution.
In brief, the singularity age and our extinction either by informative robots or more massive/informative matter seems just another stage in the growth of information of this planet, either at atomic scale (Black Hole Singularity at CERN) or at molecular scale (birth of military A.I.)
In that sense, if there is something I learned in the suits and campaigns against CERN is the determinism of that process of extinction as the absolute overwhelming majority of mankind cannot even conceive their absolutely irrelevant meaning humans have for an infinite, self-similar fractal Universe…
And this absolute arrogance of man, specially of those who guide the Industrial R=evolution, technocrats, industrialists and the military, in front of destiny, justifies our extinction and takes the blame out of the Universe itself, which has given us so many parables and opportunities to behave in balance with nature, with a humble, intelligent awareness of our limits as a species.
This writer, has renounced to a wonderful life as an ‘outstanding researcher of our religion, science’, easily achieved, had he only provided mankind with his discoveries in the field of ‘time theory and complexity’, for the simple reason that the praxis of science, technology is what is killing mankind with the excuse of knowledge.
And survival is more important that knowledge. Since a extinct scientist knows nothing.
Thus any truly intelligent scientist, regardless of what fame and celebrity he can acquire with his discoveries finds himself today in a crossroads of history where his only proper attitude is NO LONGER THE RAT RACE of scientific sinecures but the denounce of the non-future of uncontrolled research.
Survival not knowledge should be the ‘a priori’ law of all scientific research, which would mean the immediate prohibition of research in high energies and mass-bombs (energetic singularity) and robots and A.I. (information singularity). But scientists put deaf ears to profits and fame. So they prefer to ignore that in a Darwinian universe information is always ‘interested’, nothing is given for free and so it is all a trade-off in search of balances. Curiosity kills the cat and a truly intelligent species is one that ‘controls’ its wish for more energy and information, without endangering his life.
