The great Exception: Technology
In a prior article, The Death March of Technology, I summarized my less-than-cheerful thoughts on technological progression:
We have people trying to manufacture the climate and the environment. We have other people trying to mutate viruses and create bioterror agents to target other countries. The world’s powers have nuclear warheads and EMP weapons that would annihilate entire first world societies. Our experts are actively building digital currency/credits that can enslave all of us. Our food-acquiring methods have degenerated rapidly since the 1800s, with a major rise in foods that are not only harmful to us, but even reduce our ability to reproduce.
While technology has made it nice that we can work from home in our pajamas, it’s also leading us on a pathway to annihilation. Quite the curious conundrum.
Even AI is of interest in this discussion. Things like DALL-E2 and ChatGPT are all the rage right now. Everyone is in the race for AI. (As a fun sidenote: The header image for this article was created by DALL-E2 AI generation, which makes me a complete hypocrite).
But the reason these AIs are being created is always left out: Because humans are trying to be God.
While many dissidents may not be using it for that manner, that is the root reason it started in the first place. Christians and dissidents are merely responding in kind, trying to use it as a balancing measure. As always happens with the progress of technology.
AI will never have Divine life breathed into it, so it will always just be a piece of technology: An inferior creation by a creature, not a creator. This is the truth no matter how much SciFi retards evangelize the AI cult.
Technology is a fascinating monster because it requires everyone to participate in its Death March. We cannot sit out of the fight and ignore technological advancements or we will not be able to fight back accordingly. I recognize that, but it doesn’t make it any better.
A state that realizes the risk of technology and sticks with Bronze Age technology would get bulldozed by the modern states. In the same vein, the dissident who does not use the internet will get bulldozed by the leftists who do.
Technology requires us to take part in it, or if we leave, it leaves us behind. But for those of us who recognize the threat, we realize that taking part in it is only furthering our progression to destruction.
It is the ultimate catch-22. If we use and advance technology to win, it brings us closer to destruction (by internal forces who progress the death march). If we don’t use or advance technology to win, it brings us closer to destruction (by external forces who use the death march progress against us).
And quite honestly, I don’t see how we overcome this problem.
So, we are largely trapped on this pathway to inevitable destruction due to technology.
But this pathway—technology—is also the great exception to human history. Because it is linear. Which is a rare find throughout history.
Technology is one of the few things found in our history that is not cyclical. It is one of the few things that I recognize that has been linear; constantly “progressing” (evolving). Everything else appears in cycles (national souls, civilizations, states, our own lives, generations, cultural attitudes, climate, seasons, planetary stages, our own solar system, et cetera).
Nearly everything is a cycle, except for technology. Technology is (potential) proof that not all things must operate in a cyclical vacuum.
At least, it is not a cycle yet. Maybe we learn enough and then destroy ourselves, sending ourselves back to the pre-bronze age. I guess you never know. Technology could still be a cycle, just a very drawn-out version. Something to ponder, if nothing else.
Regardless, all evidence points to the linear nature of technology for now.
Technology sells itself as endless improvement. More luxury, less work, and stronger/healthier people. But is this the case? Does technology actually lead us to a type of beneficial evolution?
Most right-wingers (excluding the secular materialists) aren’t exactly sold on beneficial evolution: By which I mean the idea that we are naturally “evolving” to something better. This is because it is the opposite of common sense. No matter if you take a religious view or not, it should be obvious we are not getting stronger or healthier people:
- The Christian right-wing belief (continual degeneration): We are falling further and further from God’s grace and the perfection found in the Garden. This is why the old patriarchs lived thousands of years with minimal diseases, and now we’re lucky to get even one hundred years and are exploding in new and old diseases. We are degenerating, not ameliorating.
- The non-Christian right-wing belief: The average modernity consumer is not an evolutionary advancement. Evolution may exist, but it does not always lead to betterment, because it is clear that modern men are nowhere near the stature of their ancestors that were found thousands of years ago. Evolution may play a role in the species, but it does not necessarily improve or create a linear line to betterment.
Our people are more sick, with more odd diseases, on more meds, eating much less healthy food, and unable to do nearly as much work or exercise. If we’re “evolving”, I do not want to see the end stage.
Technology may be the exception to the cycle, but it is not an exception to degeneration.
If anything, it is expediting our people’s degeneration. More people have social anxiety due to technology, more people have lost their spiritual connection, more people are programmed what to think, and more people are far weaker because they are stuck on computers all day. These are only a few examples. I am sure my reader could think of a dozen more just off the top of their head.
Technology is perhaps the greatest degeneration, because it is the sole linear degeneration that is taking us further and further from God and our spiritual nature to a lower form of everything material. It is making us believe we are gods, instead of finding and praising the real God.
The situation doesn’t seem to be improving. It will be interesting to see where we end up. But I am not optimistic. We rarely end up using technology for good, honorable, and spiritual purposes. Instead, favoring it for selfish, prideful, and material purposes. I see no reason why this trend would change.
It is fascinating that nearly everything moves in a cycle in our existence, aside from this one thing. It’s fascinating to ponder why that is, and what implications that it may have.
As usual—I don’t have all the answers, but I do have many of the questions.
