THE FOG – Collective Genius
As artificial intelligence continues to pursue the seductions of materialism down the rabbit hole of dataism what will be humanities fate? In fact how have the humanities of the modern era already been infected through the pursuit of gratuitous data fueled by common greed?
There was a time when the humanities could find protection under the mantle of religious officials, politicians, or even big business. But those once inspired to individual feats of genius are now being swallowed up by dataism and artificial intelligence. These once great leaders of humanity like Newton, Galileo, Michelangelo, Einstein or Jung have now been relegated to the shadows of contemporary society. As their light slowly dims they are regarded as quaint fathers of progress. For in today’s frenzied world how can one person even dare to aspire to individual greatness. Their individual feasts of genius are now long gone and have been overshadowed by the exponentially brilliant realm of artificial intelligence.
When the printing press shone it gave light to the world and the humanities grew. When the internet shone it gave light to dataism and artificial intelligence. So what is a human to do? How can the humanities compete with such an articulate religion of wonder and power? How can people compete with an intelligence which can out think and out preform even the smartest human being? The answer is people cannot. We cannot compete with even the simplest of computers. We have met our match. So we must stop trying to win at a game that is insurmountably stacked against us.
So I ask again. What can we do to remain relevant and remain the authors of our own destiny? I suggest we must return to gnosis. For gnosis is a collective genius which does not glorify greed. If we can grasp this we will come to understand that together our collective minds will create a genius that will surpass any one individual or computer. This has always been true of gnosis but until now it has been ignored.
The creation of a New World Order by oligarchical elitist is not the answer. It may be the answer for the few but not for the many. The concept of a New World Order which we are being fed is simply a collection of elitist who are looking for new ways to exploit the masses through dataism. I am personally tired of hearing about a New World Order. For me this implies that we are mindless sheeple willing to eat the slop and drink the Kool-Aid as indentured servants who willingly continue to demonstrate unquestioning obedience or loyalty to those who do not deserve it. Who are these individuals? They are the guru’s, cults and corporations which tell us we need them. Much like the old church of yesterday and the new church of today we are constantly being told we need them for salvation.
The thorn in the flesh for elitist is Gnosticism because it has always stated we do not need them and that the experience of gnosis is an encounter which speaks directly to the individual. Once we understand this form of mindfulness we can awaken to the transcendent virtues of gnosis. This new way to see the world is one which can grow exponentially through our collective genius. This is where the real power of the people rest. A power that will stunt the New World Order of elitist and supplant it with a New Global Consciousness. This can be a powerful collective genius which the earth has never known. A collective genius that can never fully be infiltrated by elitist, dataism or the shrewdest computer. As people absorb the way of Global Gnosis, inhumanity will be forever distinguished from the humanity contained within the very depths of a loving and infinite cosmic soul.
