“Tokens are for cybernetic reinforcement learning programs.”
[Writer’s Note: This is not an opinion piece on the pros and cons of abortion (it would be an understatement to assert that it is a complicated issue, see here and here), nor speculative with respect to who may be responsible for SCOTUS opinion leaks. While it is healthy and necessary to self-reflect on matters of immense significance — such as the conception and development of human life — entering into related debate keeps us in polarized states of mind and behavior. Watch here and here for a savvy perspective offered by my dear friend, Alison McDowell, on the real agenda and the intricacies behind potentially forced and contrived polarization, involving the strategic application of signals intelligence (review accompanying slideshows respectively, here and here). My aim is to explore deeper inquiries into the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision (striking down state laws restricting abortion), and potential upcoming counter-decisions (Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization), such as: How do events surrounding Roe v. Wade fit into the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), the Spatial Web, and the World Brain agenda? Why now?]
Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) technologies and the Cryptosphere (cryptocurrency, blockchain, tokens, DAOs, and NFTs) are relevant to assistive reproductive technology (i.e., in-vitro fertilization/IVF), and may also have relevance to the natural progression of pregnancy (regardless of being deemed wanted/planned or unwanted/unplanned). While I have not yet identified source material that directly evidences that naturally-derived embryos have already been placed on the blockchain, I suggest that the application of datafied and gamified blockchained strategies to all reproduction (across all species, not just human) may be forthcoming in the foreseeable future. Within this emerging paradigm, the bio-cyberneticists may care very little about the definition of life, and how and when it begins or ends; but, rather, they may be most concerned about barcoding, bankrolling, and tokenizing the result, such that commodified, interoperable, and blockchained data (on which to hedge bets) begins to take on life via cybernetic conception, development, and reproduction (see Figure 4 here) — usurping natural life in the process.
Data, itself, represents life in the Machine (regardless of whether or not that life ever truly existed tangibly in the flesh), and it is precisely this quantified data that will exhibit meaning — immutably and eternally — with no regard for the intrinsic immortality of the human spirit (nor the spirit of any living organism). It is for this reason that my essay focuses on the human capital element of the 4IR. It seems apparent, as the 4IR emerges in full (nonconsensual) force, that humans (and all living beings) will be perceived as digitally entangled data to train the emergent AI, and to be exploited as commodities — no different than any object produced and distributed on a supply chain.
In July 2020, I examined the transhumanist (AKA Humanity+) agenda, and specifically, the Global Brain, providing a link to a related discussion with Ben Goertzel (CEO and founder of SingularityNET). Nearly two years later, the Global Brain has become my research focus, as it seems all crypto roads and bio-nanotechnology avenues lead to this synthetic symbiosis agenda.
The SCOTUS initial draft majority opinion to presumably strike down Roe v. Wade was “leaked” on May 2, 2022 (see here and here). Incidentally, this was less than a week prior to Mother’s Day. Curious timing. I could not help but consider how this (controlled?) leak may be involved with signals intelligence (SIGINT) and information warfare (see Endnote 1).
The following day, May 3, 2022 (when many Twitter accounts were buzzing about this revelation), a succinct tweet was posted to the account of Monty C. M. Metzger, CEO and Founder of LCX — a digital currency trading venue:Continue reading “Cybernetic Conception: ROEing on the Blockchain, WADEing in Tokenized Water”
