Digital Duke 2.0 Franz Ferdinand 2.0
To use the Historical trope and Lynch pin for the first world war 106 years ago. (at time of post) Arch Duke Franz Ferdinand assassination that led to world war 1 in 1914. Now picture the Global web and network of communications of the internet and satellites as the equivalent of Tower of Babel. And the infrastructure controllers/Silicon valley CEO's as the Digital Duke Franz Ferdinand.
Using these three tropes of Franz Ferdinand assassination, Tower of Babel as global internet I speculate and hypothesise wildly that that Digital world of a unified global network controlled by the binary zero and one numbers as the language of our time. This binary information being used by corporations and military alike can only be said to have reached its peak of innovation. We are at the point of the social internet equivalent of a digital assassination, in whatever form that takes. One that truely shocks the world into a point of no return.
So in a previous post I made on medium a couple of years ago called (excerpt and link below)
“So is the internet Weaponised yet?”
Yes the internet has its Weaponised persona worked out to be that of defining reality for everyone connected to the machine. Just as the Gutenberg Press made for easily printed publications to shift human belief. We find ourselves at the dawn of mass communication and delivery devices, where Media and audio visual elements can be consumed every minute of every day in a continuous ‘Feed’. We have pundits and Figure heads that play the Court Jester and tell us that what the Media Baron has said is ‘FAKE NEWS’. Which devalues the whole system of knowing something to be true.
So instead of Chiseled tablets with the Ten commandments we have the machine defined moral compass of a Merchant Banker/Slave owner/Corporate CEO/ Angsty teenager ruling class.
So in summation of all things known and unknown. We are at the cusp of a Internet power play for humanity to build the SERVER TOWER OF BABYLON. Where all languages and cultures are unified as one, building the digital tower to Heaven to Challenge GOD and final redemption or whatever Pay Per View title fight will name it.
So again using these the trope of the Tower of Babylon as representative of the world view of being able to speak one language and gather all the works of the world building that server tower to God (possibly via Tesla's Sky Network of satellites?)
Now what happens to the Tower of Babylon in the bible is that God Destroys it and sends everyone to the ends of the world to never speak the same language.
Bible Excerpt from Book of Genisis
1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. 3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. 4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. 5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. 6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. 8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
— Genesis 11:1–9
So now use your ability to see that modern societies language is the binary language of zeros and ones. The computer language that lives in the server tower and flows through the air connecting everyone. The optic fibre as the veins of the medusa connecting everyones faces to the Mythical creature of our own reflection/Deception. And Franz Ferdinand is going to be the mythological lynch pin of ????? Who knows but some one on earth is going to be that person.
You tell me who it is and we will both know.
So how they will confound the tongue of the digital children of men?
Well I am glad you asked.
The slowing of the network or the cutting of servers after a government dispute with silicon valley oligarchs will lead to the disruption that in the hyper connected world will have to return to paper and pen/ inventories will be screwed.
The theory is based on the fore running test audience of Covid -19 to test the human panic button reactions. All media types need a test audience and seeding news and media feed programmes to tenderise the populace before the big SHTF.
Now the controversy in this speculative science fiction narrative is that is it man made? or is it an act of God? or both?
Well you will have to wait until December 2020 to find that out. As various slowdowns and Data cliffs start to appear.
Remember you cant Horde Data but you can retain wisdom.
