I dreamed last night…as per usual my dreams are never good…I dreamed the internet was the beginning…the beginning of the human web that would ensnare all humankind in a web of fear and control. That we as humans would lose our humanity because we would become attachments to the thing… the entity…that we had created. We already have become attachments, all you have to do is go to a coffee shop and look around. People don’t talk to each other anymore, they are to0 busy staring at their computers. That same computer that knows your all of your personal and private information, and believe me it does, whether you know it or not. There are people and places, and especially the government, that do nothing else but busy themselves compiling that information, so that they know more and more and more about you, so that they can have more and more and more control over you. And eventually this control will take on a life of its own because we will enable it to do so. All of our personal information will be in a microchip…our money and finances, our access to necessities and services, our medical needs and history, our mobility and ability to travel, our personal tastes, our fantasies, sexuality and dreams, our political status…our freedom. Easier to control…made easier every day by the growing web of technology that we are enabling it to weave around us.
Will we have the right to be too shocked when the spider starts its decent down to us to do the final wrapping and we can feel its strong weight on the web strings of our personal freedoms, liberties and boundaries…until it reaches us and very slowly wraps our captured bodies, souls, and hearts in its tight little ball of web string and then very slowly punctures us with its blood sucking aparatus…and very, very slowly drains all of our life force and our blood…and then leaves our dead corpses to go do more spinning.
