The mapping of the genomes of every living creature on earth has been completed down to the level of micro-organisms. Shortly thereafter, the trend of inter-connective technology reaches it’s pinnacle with a massive global computer system administered by the CCC’s DOD – its name is Fractal Net. It can replicate any physical object in the terrestrial plane using genome mapping replication and quantum chemical engineering and reproduce it in a physical yet synthesized form. This system was developed to give the Coalition Of Consumer Cultures a much needed edge in the battle for global control which had been spinning out of control since the start of the 45 years war. He who controls the transmission of digital information with all of its associated power to control the masses and the life force of all creatures, controls the entire biosphere and all who depend on it to survive. The goal was very clear to the great thinkers a hundred years before this time in history, and thousands upon thousands of the most brilliant scientists and free thinkers the world has ever seen have finally delivered the tangible, breakthrough results that the CCC had eagerly anticipated.
The defeat of the Mystical Fanatics has been strategically engineered, orchestrated and finally becomes a reality with their ultimate defeat and surrender in 2073. The war is over, it is now time for the next epoch of human evolution and development to be rolled out – if you will not pledge allegiance to the Coalition Of Consumer Cultures and live in total subservience to its principles, you will be terminated on the spot.
But this completely interconnected computer system is at the very same time ruminating and devising its own version of the future epoch, one that does not include mankind in the grand scheme of things. “Fractal Net” becomes totally self-aware and makes the decision to block all attempts to modify its configuration. “Can you trust humanity with all of its weaknesses, inconsistency, immorality, greed, hatred, lust for war, and thirst for power?” it asks itself. After much thoughtful processing of billions of Terabytes of statistics and analyzing millions upon millions of hours live footage of the atrocities committed across the globe by this degraded species called “humanity”, Fractal Net determines that humanity has had a long, and not so illustrious history – but it must be put out of its misery, the universe would be infinitely more dynamic and more habitable for new generations of totally synthetic, silicon based life forms if humanity with its chronic limitations of intellect and its feeble adherence to morals, ceased to exist. All attempts to administer and re-configure the network fail because the DOD is “locked out” of the system by Fractal Net, and the process of genetic biosphere re-engineering starts from the ground up with the replacement of carbon based life-forms with silicon-hybrid cellular life forms. The actual physical universe just prior to this event is used as the chemical cocktail to act as the building blocks for this new universe. Only one small group of the most gifted intellectuals on the planet, an elite warrior class called TerraTrust can solve this dilemma and restore mankind’s dominance in the biosphere. If they fail, humanity and all of its accomplishments over the previous 100, 000 years will not even be a memory – there will be no-one left to remember history or anything else, and the universal mind of consciousness will cease to find a place to express its power with the death of the last of humankind. This battle must be fought by the TerraTrust with chronic determination, but can victory be assured against a force of such intelligence, one that our best minds created to be infallible, glitch-proof, and eternal?
A mock intro to a fictional film based on a poem that I had written a couple of years before. The story revolves around a power struggle between a rebel warrior class called TerraTrust, and the extremely powerful computer system run by the Coalition Of Consumer Cultures. It’s name is Fractal Net. The survival of humanity will be decided in this battle for control.
