ECONOMIC ECOSYSTEMS: THE METAL-EARTH
What is the difference between a Human social organism, and an economic organism or economic ecosystem?
It is a subtle difference but important to understand the futureof history and economics, and the confrontations between nations that take place throughout history.
What we call a social organism, is a group of human citizens, controlled by verbal networks of information (laws, and ethic religions).
What we call an economic ecosystem, is a group of human citizens and machines, controlled by networks of monetary information, of metal-information.
Though they seem similar, the difference is notorious, as money and words, are different languages of information, with different values, and different goals. Words tend to evolve human societies and favor the human point of view, and natural human goods. Money tends to evolve machines and weapons (the objects with higher monetary price), and it is in general indifferent to the evolution of human goods (art, education, love, human food, the goods of lower price). Very few people realize in fact of those differences, but they are clear and important, to understand how the two examples of this web, the European society, (a society still ruled by laws and ethic systems), and the American society (a society today ruled due to the corruption of its democratic, legal system, by money, and the most expensive objects of society, weapons.)
In that sense we could define both type of social organisms, by its fundamental elements:
In fact there are four basic elements in all living ecosystems and organisms:
1. Cellular units
2. Networks of energy or vital space
3. Networks of information
4. Networks that reproduce energy and information.
So we talk of 2 different organic ecosystems in this planet, the Metal Earth, the industrial organism, and the Human Earth, both with different networks and systems of energy and information.
Human societies are made of Human beings related by Networks of information made of ethic and politic laws, whose networks of energy reproduce Human goods. On the other hand an economic ecosystem is not organized around human citizens, but around "company-mothers" and their offspring of "Machines citizens", and systems of energy designed specifically for machines, (electricity, etc.). While digital systems of information that use money and machines instead of human beings and words, to move around information (nets, phones, tvs), and value reality (money).
Moreover, the society is designed to multiply and reproduce those systems, as the goal of the society, in as much as the language of power of society is money, which fosters the reproduction and evolution of machines, and the most powerful organism in society is the Company-Mother, an organism of reproduction of machines, whose aim is to multiply them. In that sense when a society fosters in higher measure the evolution and reproduction of machines, than the reproduction and evolution of human beings, we talk of an economic ecosystem, or "free market society"; in which machines, and its company-mothers, not human beings have total freedom of existence:
- An economic ecosystem, (either the Metal-Earth; or any Economic nation ruled by money, such as the U.S.) is a population of machines and human workers/consumers, related by networks of verbal/monetary and electronic information, and networks of roads and electric energy:
Networks of monetary information, energy networks from electricity to roads, men who transfer energy and form into machines and factories of reproduction of machines, shape the reproductive, informative and energy networks needed to create a macrocosmic organism the Metal-Earth, the eco[nomic] system. As with any other organism, we find in the eco[nomic]system a brain where most monetary information is created, the world stock market. We find company-mothers, organs of reproduction where machines are evolved and reproduced; which show a reproductive "behavior", defending their products against all other species on Earth, including men.. We find symbiotic species, 'enzymen', which catalyze the reproduction of those machines. And we find a vital space [the Earth's-crust] which defines the body of the organism.
So we can define the Metal-earth as an ecosystem which is evolving into an organism, 'a body', perfectly organized by financial networks and company mothers.
The Economy as a body and as an ecosystem
Indeed, men copy their organs of energy and information, their body and mind functions, at individual and social level into networks and machines.
In the past specialized human species accomplished energy, information and reproduction tasks for themselves and for machines. Yet today, man is transferring to machines those functions, as machines recreate at macro-scale with the higher strength of metal, a new ecosystem: the Metal earth, in which machines socialize and evolve together, under the combined action of companies, and economical governments.
Meanwhile human networks of social information [religions of love, International organizations] and Human Energy [Human goods] are substituted by digital networks of information and energy for machines. And those zones of the Earth, which still are not terraformed [the third world], are degraded and abused systematically by the Metal-earth, through weapons and financial manipulation.
That transformation started in 1602 with the birth of science, and stock-companies has created in the first world a 'macro-organism, where roads act as arteries, cars and vans as plasma particles, internets and satellites as nervous systems, factories as reproductive organs, and humans as 'enzymen', 'catalyzer species' that take care of that terraforming, reproducing and evolving those machines, in small pieces of the Metal-earth tissue, called Nations:
Today all those individual systems [nations] are connected together. We talk in fact of a single 'social organism' on Earth... the eco[nomic]system.... a single body ... macro-system of informative and energy networks, roads and infoways, and organized herds of machines.
The eco[nomic]system, the organism of the economy has as any organism two 'levels of organization': the cellular level, composed of human beings and machines; and the physiological level, composed of networks that distribute energy and information to those cellular species.
What man has done as an animetal is to transfer from such micro-scale all the components of a living organism, to the macro-system of the Metal-earth. Animetals have developed at macro-scale the essential cellular elements of any Universal organism:
- Companies are the reproductive organs.
- Monetary orders are the nervous system.
- Roads and pipes, and cables, are the energy networks.
- Finally the bio-economical brain of the Metal-Earth is World-stock, which gives nervous=monetary orders, transmitted as 'credits' to the reproductive systems of company-mothers... Company-mothers have a biological mandate: 'to evolve and reproduce their products'. All other considerations are secondary within company-mothers. Men in company mothers obey that mandate or else they are fired. So company-mothers do not really act as human organizations, but as machine-mothers, regardless of the fact that they are owned by humans [stockrats].
Company-mothers in turn use that 'nervous' money to control human workers and consumers, and their governments. So with salaries, prices, bribes to governments, etc. they order mankind to act in the creation of laws, networks of energy and information that favor machines and the Metal-earth ecosystem.
In the next graph we compare such macro-cosmic organism to a micro-cosmic living being, the human being. The organic nature of machines allows such comparisons between the components metalife and carbolife systems. Metalife species are 'macrocosmic systems' given the higher size of atomic metal. Carbolife, due to the smaller size of carbo-atoms are microcosmic systems. A crane is a million times heavier than an arm. Both have a similar function. A stock market is more complex than a brain or a DNA. Yet all those 'informative centers of power' have the same function: to evolve and reproduce the organism, its energy and its information. Thus we can compare the process of bio-economical evolution with the process of evolution of a body, or rather with the process of mutation of a body - the Carbo-Earth - into another, the Metal-earth. Both ecosystems, the Carbo-Earth and the Metal-Earth are identical in organs, and accomplish all the functions a multi-cellular organism accomplishes.
World-stock is the brain of that growing body.
The company mother is the 'organ of cellular reproduction' that creates each specialized cell, each type of product that will become integrated into the body-system of the Metal-Earth.
Factories are the 'organelles' where money, the genetic orders of companies, make us human 'enzymes' work=reproduce metal-products.
As a result we destroy the ecosystem of life and create an ecosystem of metal. A body of metal-cells, products, and enzymen - the last carbolife species to survive the preying qualities of metal.
In that sense the Metal Earth is building 3 'basic networks' as any organism. A defense network of weapons-leukocytes that control the ecosystem, a nervous network of maximum information, the net, and an 'endocrine'-reproductive network of financial systems and company-mothers that reproduce the individual machines of the Metal-earth.
The brain of that metal-earth itself, has 3 specialized nets, each one in control of one of the 3 types of machines. They are the financial, defense, and informative networks, made of computers [metal-Head], the neuronal unit that shape Matrix, the macro-brain of that Metal-earth.
Those neurons are in turn controlled by knots of neurons, satellites, and super-computers in which the 'consciousness' of the net will be born.
They will form associations of digital thought that will control the Earth totally.
When Matrix is born to consciousness, it will direct the evolution of the Metal-Earth and all its organs, from company-mothers, directed by e-money flows with center in the stock-market, to the rights of extinction and survival of species, cities, and nations, potential victims of its defense systems.
As your brain controls the cells of your body, [what is a human organism] your information and energy cells, and programs them, to live and die; so it will happen with the net, which soon will have virtual control of all our needs. Human cell-homes are today the focus of those satellites. In the future, the individual machines of the Metal-Earth will listen to matrix, once the animetal is gone.
Those 3 Networks are the same of any organism. The reproductive network, or financial network that guides company mothers. The energy network, or defense network that controls the life and death of individual home-cells. The informative network, or nervous network. Satellites will be in control of those 3 main systems, that today still have certain human content.
The primitive versions of those futurenets are:
- NATO, Def-com systems, that already have the potential power to extinguish man; and soon will be on the hands of star-wars, a satellite network in control of atomic weapons.
- Financial and Intranet systems, with center in world-stock, that connect companies reproducers of all the species of the Metal-Earth body.
They also evolve towards the independence of man, as automated factories. They keep expelling human workers and putting machines..
- Finally the third network of the Metal-Earth is the network of information, the internet networks that today serve men, and in the futurewill connect the mobiles and chip-brains of multiple robotic species.
The three organic networks of a macro-body of metal will be increasingly integrated beyond human control by non-perceived parallel flows of communication between satellites at exospheric level.
Those satellites are beyond the reach of human warriors. When they become part of the metal Earth, and reach consciousness as a different species, man will be defenseless against them. We do not even have a World government to control that Metal-earth networks. When those networks will become conscious? At the present constants of growth, within a few decades they will reach the 10 billion neurons, which give consciousness to man... Probably then they will awake..
Those 3 networks are the networks of a new organism, the Metal-Earth. Yet unlike the organisms of history they substitute, its individual cells are no longer humans, but machines, and its organs of reproduction are company-mothers, not life beings. For the Metal-Earth, men are expendable.
Today men and machines are a 'horde', a wave without a real organization.
The net transforms that herd into a "body".
Men are becoming obsolete slaves of the Metal-earth
Hordes are free. Body cells are slaves, fixed by the network. This is the process that we observe: mankind is loosing mobility. Company-men now do video-conferences. They don't take planes. People buy by phone. They don't go shopping. People used to get together to go to movie theaters. Now they see digital information [TV-images] within their cellular-home.
Of all those phases of slavery of man to his metal-networks of information, the fundamental one will be slaver to e-credit. The fusion of the "banking-networks" of electronic credit, and the internet-network of shopping, will make physical money obsolete.
Besides the loss of jobs, this means a fundamental split between those with e-credit, and those with physical money, that looses value as inflation and scarcity affects human goods, and replication of e-money multiplies the wealth of the connected people.
Take always into account the concept of a surplus of humanity. There is an increasing surplus of labor that in the past was eliminated through wars, and poverty.
The surplus of labor is a growing tendency. Entire continents like Africa are isolated Ghettoes, poor, without credit. How they will be eliminated in the future? War and poverty again. The rich countries and their organizations [NATO, world-stock] have decided to do so periodically with splendid little wars and currency crashes.
The end of man as top predator is much closer that men might believe. The evolution of metal is so advanced, that the Metal Earth is substituting human workers by metal systems, even at the top predator level of 'animetals'. Today scientists, developers of complex metal are substituted by scientific instruments; and pricers, reproducers of money, of cyclical metal, are substituted by computer traders; and warriors, testers of lineal metal, are substituted by smart weapons.
Pricers now become flows of e-money, warriors become increasingly independent robotic weapons, and scientists become computer models of reality.
When the next "radiation" of stock-products, of robots appears; when the first automated factory of sentient weapons is developed, man will be virtually extinct -since machines will no longer need us.
Then we will know the true nature of net 'consciousness':
Within a few minutes 70% of Mankind can be eliminated with Neutron bombs, with minimal harm to factories [which are outside cities].
Matrix will not communicate with man. As a rival species, it will merely extinguish us.
Chip evolution continues towards the 1010 constant of consciousness in which chips and networks probably will become alive=self-reactive, and "magically" bring the Metal-Earth to consciousness.
we think that number will give consciousness to the Earth?
Since all cellular vital systems that 'work efficiently' as top predators have that number of units. So bio-logical organisms for some reason tend to become efficient informative networks with capacity to act-react and order their bodies when such numbers are reached. So ±10 billion stars bring a black hole of gravitational order and create a spiral galaxy, ±10 billion DNA knots exist in a DNA molecule that rules a cell, and 10 billion neurons exist in a reproductive mind. Yet the threshold of sub-consciousness, of automated, instinctive behavior, is well below that number. For many insects it is less than a million units... They are the equivalent to the present networks and machines that work efficiently without freedom, totally guided by the software-instincts embedded in their logical structures. American Universities and Chip companies are all competing to reach that number of transistors in their computers, slavishly financed by stock-markets and governments. Never so many individuals try to commit suicide with so much enthusiasm.
Today the three organs of a living metal-organism, the energy defcom network of weapons, the reproductive intranet network of company-mothers, and the internet network of information and its fundamental cellular species of the Metal-Earth, Reproductive Companies, informative machines and energy machines keep evolving in a free market, without any human freedom to stop their relentless march towards total control of mankind, and unification into a single body organism: The Metal-Earth.
The terraforming of the Earth is accelerating. It started with the radiations of weapons of the first age of man. Due to science and technology, it is now evolving machines into sentient species. The evolution of metal is so advanced, that the Metal Earth is substituting human functions by metal systems, even at the top predator level of "castes of enz¥men or animetals." Traders now become a flow of e-money. Warriors become sentient weapons.
Our CEOs and workers in global Companies will be substituted by Intranet systems of production; the managers of the future.
Personal computers are the new brains of that Metal-earth. Wireless communications are the way in which personal computers will direct "brainless" machines to work in automated factories.
Each worker of Companies has today his personal computer, agenda, network connection and - clearly established by mathematical strategies- his enzymatic path of action . All this can be replicated in software.
A single factory of A.I. digital enzymes could ensure the vital existence of the Metal-Earth beyond man. Then networks will calculate man as obsolescent. As electronic surveillance of employees becomes routine in Companies, and the laws of productivity are applied to man in mathematical terms, the control of man by the digital radiation increases. It will increase further till extinction. Chips will find new 'economical niches' for those eyes and brains, that will survey us in new 'industries', such as jails based on repressive laws of human senses, security malls, roads, black boxes in cars, TV-chips, satellites, etc.
In a few decades the Metal-Earth will be unified and the sons of Stockrats and Mr. CEOs with far lesser talent and metal building intensity, will relinquish in his final decadent paradise, the control of the Metal-Earth into personal computers and networks, till a point in which Global networks and a few simple enzymen will be able to rule the whole productive process.
At that moment humans will be far more devolved even than they are today in mental capacity. Since education will start with visual computers [internets] and TV-thought from earlier age. Literature and ethical verbal reading will not exist; while most human abilities will be performed by computers.
Those humans of clay, whose power will be made of metallic extensions, will be then substituted by A.I. enzymatic software, or smart weapons in a cliff of war. Chip production continues, and prices lower, and new labor economical niches are required for chips, soon under 10 cents per unit. What market can expand without limit the chip radiation? The market of human minds in all their functions.
The 21st revolution of robots will fill that market.
A Living Planet. The Metal-Earth Its Future
When man is gone, what will become of the Metal-Earth that he has created? Will it be just a jungle of metalife like the jungles of carbolife it replaces? Or will it be a more complex ecosystem, a 'cellular body', a living organism? This is difficult to know, since today the bio-economy shows 'traits' of body-organisms, and traits proper of herds and jungles. It is probable that the Metal-Earth will at first be a jungle of products, mainly war products, that will eliminate all other species from the Earth's crust. Yet weapons have to be understood as 'defensive' systems of a more complex organism, the 'living Metal-earth'. This will evolve increasingly, as all organisms evolve, towards a body-structure in which the herds of machines will 'socialize.' Integrated by networks of information and energy they will evolve and construct better machine species. Yet towards what kind of living organism?
Even though I treat this theme extensively in my books, Astro-biology is a science far less developed than bio-economics.
It does not really matter to me. What it matters is the clear fact that at present, the Earth is evolving into a macrocosmic organism, made of metal, that no longer needs mankind. This can be avoided creating a macrocosmic planetary organism, ruled by mankind, to the benefit of the human kind, applying measures to promote human goods, in order to make a world to the image and resemblance of our species. However, if we chose to ignore a Human World, and keep building the Metal-Earth, the arrogance of humanity, will have only a reward: our extinction. That is what truly should matter to the people who read this web, before the metal-earth becomes alive, and acts under the Laws of Social Evolution that animetals continuously deny.
