Our verging into the AI and Photonic could bring a similar slapdown from Gaia.
AI ... a special case, a case requiring programming no Earthbound mind can hack.
That is the only way we do not loop the story of DUNE, and bring a Butlerian Jihad down on ourselves in the future.
People are plastic enough, but are given helpful programming in morals and carry some remnant morals within, because they are bound to a moral living quantum sheet.
AI has no such safety.
AI must have tamper proof code. From all points of access.
The penchant to war on this planet and slavery reminds me of the Movie Dune.
So ya.....That was brought here?
I believe this scenario which has played out over the last few hundred years is a tried and proven method of conquest.
You can say, it is part of the foibles of the swollwn lotus bloom on the Saddle cloth of Indra, that the slippery slope of change --- brings out the worst in opportunists.
You might say it is a testing.
I would say no caring creator, or overseer would proceed into destructions with such abandon.
Oh, but it is isolated ... oh, but it was not, not at the outset. It was wholesale violence. It was the shredding of the web of life, leaving the women (breeding stock?) Without their protectors!
Innocent no longer, do we suffer the back lash even today?
Do we believe we have a chance against those who may have built a planetary quantum coupled oscillator on two or even 3 planets ( Earth with sheeple, Mars, and Ceres)??
. . .
Was the reprisal the destruction of Ceres, the desolation of Mars and the wipe of the Earth?
Really, read Farrell's 3 books on it, it's sobering, to say the least.
Humans contain a kind of innate grace which will sustain them if it is not crossed by bad programming, or heightened irrational emotions, or drugged states of consciousness.
This goodness is what maintains is over time. It is opperative today. And, it is still under attack.
Mind is the rider.
