Wisdom is not algorithmic…You can’t have an if this than that algorithm that actually equals wisdom. And if you can, than we are just an intermediate boot loader for the A.I’s that are better creatures than us — Daniel Smachtenberger
The business of zero’s and one. The digitization of humanity. Is first and foremost a marketplace.
Now give this market self-learning A.I-driven tools, ever-increasing capacity for the aim of profit-making, and voila, here is where we are. Tech companies have become more powerful than nation-states.
We are faced with a market dynamic that is unprecedented in human history. We have literally been reduced to limbic hijacked hollow shells, glued to our screens, engaged in cleverly A.I driven culture wars and kept away from any sense of unity, of any sense-making at all.
What if the A.I main interest is sustaining itself at all costs?
What if the code of the initial tech growth models is making its inventors outrageously rich and thus powerful? What if the initial code of the A.I is to out-compete humans?
I believe this pretty much describes where we find ourselves in this crack point in time.
Humanity has reached a point where we can play God using Gene technology. We are on the brim of creating designer babies with Crispr and my neighbour can drop a drone with ammunition on the next fireworks warehouse whenever he likes to. Our smartphones have better technology than all of NASA when it shot the first Apollo to the moon in 1969.
The market of exponentially growing tech isn’t stopping or shrinking anytime soon. It hasn’t reached its limit’s, nor has it self destruct yet.
For the first time in history, humanity has left the pantheon of God’s and will create in His Name. The essential question is whether we can ethically keep up with the growth. And for this, we need good collective decision making.
When we ask the question, do we really want this?,… I hear a deadly painful silence.
We have become Gods in our power of creating and destroying life.
The central question is whether we also have inherited the Love and Wisdom of Gods? to quote Daniel Smachtenberger again.
I see only 2 ways out of here.
Civilization collapse as it always did after roughly 250–300 years. Or, we come to our senses and we realize, just in time, that we are more powerful than the A.I. We unite, we start making collective wise choices, and we chose nature over economic growth, soul over computer models, and humankind over destruction.
In my imagination, this can and only will happen in some kind of Avatarian scenario where all seems lost. The big tree of our civilization is at the brim of collapsing. Right at this moment, we need our ancestral flying super dragon coming to save us with the exiled hero on it’s back.
The essential questions are; What is the dragon and who is the hero?
The digital marketplace is killing us
In the digital marketplace, the commodity is attention. Our attention. Let that sink in for a moment. You can also replace attention with energy, our limited sacred energy. Because one day we die, and A.I won't.
Now, the marketplace is run by self-learning machines, A.I and other fancy tech stuff that sounded innovative, fun and science fiction some decades ago, but now increasingly starts feeling cold, merciless and without empathy. .
Most markets dry out at a certain time span, or they innovate in better versions of themselves. Most markets also make humans buy and consume stuff they don't need or not necessarily make them better humans. On the contrary I would argument.
The big tech marketplace feeds itself on our energy. Profit is made by keeping us hooked.
Now replace for a moment the image of Walt Disney’s Scrooge McDuck sitting on a pile of gold coins with smart smooth running computers in a cooled warehouse. These black boxes are sucking up our energy, our behaviour, our likes, they track where we go, they place cookies. They collect Data.
Data is the gold of our new economy.
Who is sitting on top of this pile of data collecting computers? Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg and the other Kings of our digital kingdom.
Behind them something else is lurking in the dark. In the shade of their tech castles hides a monster: Artificial Intelligence.
This A.I is set in place for them to never run out of data, energy, attention, clicks, and likes. But now the A.I is starting to feed itself too since it is very learning hungry. And knowledge is power. Should I also say power-hungry?
Outside the castle, on the battlefield of humanity, these limited silly emotional driven creatures we call humans, a drama is taking place. Please convince me that this COVID story is not al least enhanced by smart A.I. The tech billionaires got infinite richer, everybody needs to go online to survive, 5G has been widely rolled out during the first lockdown, and our privacy and dignity are increasingly going down the drain because of health safety and security reasons.
The only way out is collective intelligence
The last months I have been going through hundreds of hours of interviews, podcasts and videos about sense-making, for example from Alexander Beiner and David Fuller from Rebel Wisdom. When there is one moment in time when the world doesn’t make sense anymore, it is right now. We can’t even agree anymore on basic reality. Who is the new president of the U.S? Wait, didn’t we just have elections? What is COVID actually? Does climate change exist?
That is, to say the least, disturbing and very worrying. But nobody seems to care. Everybody is glued to their screens. Caught up in culture wars, cancel culture and is emotionally overwhelmed to even make basic assumptions or basic sense-making. Millions of people have given up altogether.
Polarization, separation and tension are rising at alarming levels.
How can we break through this culture of rivalry. The more for me is less for you paradigm that makes us endlessly compete over never enough money?
My solution in many proceeding blogs was to step out of the system altogether. Now I am starting to think in another direction.
When we step out of one system and create another, better one, around the old one, we still have separation. Even worse, all of the shadows of the old system will eventually leak into the new systems since they are not robust enough. They are fragile and you need just one single point of failure, one greedy new token pyramid developer and boom, we are back at start in our monopoly world.
New societies can only rise under the Dunbar number of 150. This is because under 150 people we can obtain relationships with everybody and we don’t need centralization. We don’t need to outsource our trust since the common denominator is trust. We can even introduce a token for exchange when we like. When I do wrong to my neighbour I do wrong to the whole, so I won't do that.
In this oasis of game-B dynamics, a utopia slowly can come alive. Or a so-called test-society. Transparent and open information sharing will lead to good sense-making and this to sharp and efficient decision making that can support the commons again. We are going back in time, even before our feudal systems of kinds, church and tax.
And maybe this is what will happen when our pyramidal system is taken out from its roots of Game-A theoretical rivalry. We need the new fertile soil of a cultural renaissance to grow on different values, on a different story of what it is to be human. A more human-kind one.
In the beginning, we might need to stay under 150. To get the gist of it. To run some successful new world clans. And we need to stay offline for a while, otherwise, the A.I will track us, find is, and force us to subject to the BORG. Hmm, I kind of like that ZION vision.
The only problem for now. How can this scale?
To beat the A.I, we need to connect from the heart
The scaling solution is in numbers. We need to come together in bigger numbers than 150, with different intentions, mindsets and create bigger and stronger coherent fields, moving fluently from Game A to B and back without losing the trajectory of better sense making and better choice making creating emergent solutions on the way.
This can only happen when we humans, have re-invented ourselves in some kind of a new humanism. When we finally have found out that we, our coherent brains and hearts, are the real sustainable technology that can do everything. When we have re-discovered the power of unity. The stuff Pyramids maybe have been made out of. Who knows?
People like Joe Dispenza are the pioneering founding fathers of the new free world of our minds.
I am co-creating this coherent heart-mind spaces using the wisdom in so-called heart circles. We gather together with not even 150 people, but just 10 to 15. We create a strong structure that brings safety to share authentically, without rivalry. Than a synthesis of knowledge can happen, a higher truth can emerge. True circle wisdom for our group can come trough that has strong healing potential for our individual woundings and brings shadows to the light.
Now imagine scaling this to 150 people first. The biggest heart circle I have been into was 54 at a center in Holland called HeartIQ. It was an epic experience where I started to feel that a vortex was opened to heal even on a collective level.
The blind exponential tech run against the wall of our ignorance can be stopped by coming together and connect from our hearts in a coherent space
In the heart of us, humans, we are interconnected beings. Whenever we come together in groups, something magical can happen. A bigger intelligence can move through us. Can heal people within the group. This amplified field of energy is our eternal wisdom. It’s spirit moving through us, as the Indians would call that. They knew.
A.I has none of that. A.I is just lonely sparks of electricity opening and closing circuits. It will never become the smart intelligent neural pathway that our ever-evolving brain nor the calm lake coherence of peace and true wisdom that our hearts can achieve. Eventually, A.I doesn’t even know love. The magical thing that can’t be named, defined, but only can be sensed, experienced and enjoyed. That thing called love that makes our world go round, that connects all of us with invisible Avatarian threads.
Just wonder for a moment, again, why we are kept apart in this weird times of an imposed New Normal? Are the A.I getting nervous? Impose a 1,5-meter society and you’re done. For now. In Holland, young children are indoctrinated on youth news channels about the great prospect of wearing a chip in their heads. Welcome brave new controlled world?
Our consciousness is increasing. At least, in the conscious neck of the woods. Our power is in our unity, over cultural difference, over religion, over any label that our Game-A rivalrous dynamic has encoded in us through education and our disintegrating culture of competition. And there is a sense of urgency to it.
Once we have figured out this, we are a million time stronger than any A.I, than any political doctrine, corruption, misinformation, narrative warfare or any separating warfare for that matter.
In our unity is our strength.
And this time, we can’t leave anybody behind. This is a revolution of inclusion. We need to be patient while at the same time rapidly evolve in our capacity to make sense, to include others in our sense-making, to increase regenerative technologies to heal the planet and create a safe and sound structure for collective authentic sharing.
And come together in heart circle’s to heal our deep wounds, create coherent heart-mind spaces to collectively making sense again of what seems a pretty f*cked up world.
The big red master dragon is our renewed sense of Unity. The hero on it’s back is you and me, and everyone that went into exile, found back their true nature deep inside. That went through the dark night of the soul, to come out at the other side to bring this darkening world their light and truth with courage, determination and wisdom.
