    I’m waiting for my android fuck slaves to be invented.

  2. Pretty far fetched if you ask me. We are relatively close but at the same time not even close. As if only technology perverts our minds and isolates ourselves from each other. It is how we use the technology. We are a separated world regardless, technology just amplifies the reality. We have not grown spiritually as a species and until we do, we continue on the same old beating path. It is not all of our fault but everyone’s fault.

      “We have not grown spiritually as a species and until we do”
      Yeah not gonna happen. When was “spirituality” invented? Yeah millenia later and we haven’t “grown” yet. Not gonna happen. 

      I am excited though at the prospect of my entire world becoming a video game. Now that shit is plausible, will happen, and will be freakin awesome!!!!!

  3. See this is why i never use a gameshark, it leads to rape.

    Just proof that having the Internet in your brain can’t change the fact that you’re a pathetic loser.

    Isn’t there a part of the game Syndicate like this? Where people all get microchips in their heads that make the terribly shitty world they live in look like utopia?

    • I so loved that game.

    •  What’s the difference between being rich and making your shitty world look like a utopia with fancy furniture and fine art….and not being rich and making your world look like a utopia with visual apps? Sounds about like a social equalizer to  me since pretty much all levels of society will want these apps. Frankly, until the insinuated rape scene at the end, I was drooling for this tech.

        That’s pretty pathetic.

         can you name one instance at any time in history, anywhere, that consumerism equalised social relations?

        •  Yeah. It was called the industrial revolution, and once enough poor farmers had made the jump to urban life so that they could unionize, life was MUCH better for the common man than it had been before and frankly than it is now. They created the middle class AND the notion of upward social mobility in the United States. It’s with the loss of industry, and thus the common man’s ability to weild and use large quantities of money that we have become radically unequal. Most of your parents had opportunities you and I will never have. And this is all beside the point.

          Do you really think there wont be open source alternative to the glut of corporate software offered on these devices? It’s not like you’ll have to be some slave to “the man”. The open source community will again prove the old internet adage that “none of us is as good as all of us” true once more. Maybe ease off the mellow drama a bit.

          • I would love to see the open source community become a force to be reckoned with. I’m just not so sure its gunna happen like you are though. only time will tell.

      • before everything was plastic and disposable (you know, industrialized society), things like fancy furniture and fine art exuded human spirit and beauty. Maybe go to a museum or something and learn something about human potential and value… I’ll give you a hint, there will always be people that exist that see through the digital fantasy world, and no, all levels of society won’t be wanting this; its designed for the drones.

        •  I’m well aware since I’m an antique fan and have little furniture in my home from before 1945. Never the less, no, poor peoples of those times did not have nice furniture. It was every bit as bland as the stuff you buy at walmart, just better built, I’ll give them that. The antiques of today are the spoils of yesterday’s wealthy, not the common man. There is no lack of human value in getting more out of basic space for less. We will produce less, which will mean less garbage, less pollution and just perhaps a shift to understanding the folly of materialism. AND we’ll get more use out of that space. Being technophobic in the developed world is like being a bird who refuses to fly or a fish who refuses to swim.

            lol. that little history of antiques is total bullshit. vintage industrial, vintage farmhouse are both huge markets right now and have been for years. alongside so-called ‘socialist’ furniture- mid century modern (american, scandinavian and brazilian)- which was very commercial, very accessible on its release. put down the architectural digest and pick up Ars.

          • if you want to get specific, i’m not technophobic, far from it. I am however against the illusory futurism of the current day. Essentially I have a nostalgia for analog technology and its advantages over the digital realm.

  6. was this video for or agents this sight thing? These people are creepy
