Around the middle of March, I lost my perception of time. Not in the sense of being late for work or forgetting what day of the week it is, but rather my perception of time completely disintegrated. I remember being busy trying to make sense of all of the new information and strange events that I was taking in. This was after my experience gaining self-awareness, and I was now going over different political and cultural events trying to understand why so many people were acting so strangely. From the Covington Kids fiasco, there has been the Gillette Ad, Captain Marvel, The Starwars Fandom, GamerGate, Comicsgate, The Government Shutdown, and countless other scandals, there was a visible pattern.
There was this sense of technology that didn’t quite line up for me as well that I needed to make sense of first. The main element that kept coming back to me was an A.I. Doll named Sophia that was again making its rounds on the late night talk shows. My friends kept insisting that a mannequin that made jokes with Jimmy Kimmel was the most technologically advanced thing ever. I was never that impressed and always figured that I just wasn’t smart enough to get it (See previously Entry about me brainwashing myself into losing debates). However, this time I stood my ground and insisted that the smartphones that showed up Sophia were way more advanced. I got ‘conspiratorial’ and figured that ‘They’ had to be hiding something to parade around such a farce so blatantly. Everyone has heard about A.I. in some way, shape, or form and we’ve heard that ‘someday’ in the distant future it will be integrated into regular society. However, it wasn’t until I jumped down that singular rabbit-hole that I learned that that time has come and gone a long time ago. I happened to come across the concept of Machine Learning and Neural Networks which I never conceived could be accomplished so casually and not have a big deal made about it. After what seemed like an eternity, I again began to feel that same sensation that something was about to change. It was then I came across the fable of “The Animal School” which clicked everything into place.
The Animal School is a fable about different forest animals gathering and deciding to solve the problems of the New World. They gathered and decided to build a school and adopted a curriculum that ended up taking away the individual strengths of the students for the sake of uniformity. It’s a very simple story, however, the potency of the message speaks volumes and reverberates throughout society. This story was written by George H. Reavis in the early 1940s as a call to action, almost 80 years ago. 80 Years?!? The issue seemed so current for it to have been a call to action in the 1940s the “New World”. The next bombshell that hit me what discovering that IBM was first established in 1910, over 100 years ago! Again, with my limited historical knowledge, I could only reference the scene in the original Matrix movie when Morpheus explained that it isn’t 1999 as Neo believed and that it was closer to 2199 (Don’t quote me one that). Time is something that most people take for granted, and no one takes it seriously enough.
My mind again shifted in a way that I can’t quite put into language yet. It was around this time that web 3.0 was implemented and the internet was different. I was getting multiple messages from everything I discovered from then on. Everything I read and learned about technology was filtered in my mind into multiple categories and dimensional timelines. Which also line up perfectly with my new perspective on life, giving access to answers as well as new ways of comprehending. It was around this time that I saw the REAL value and data and all of the privacy we as a society have signed away with updates and not reading privacy policies. (Horrifying!!!!) It took several weeks to come to terms and get over my paranoia about what I found and again act like everything is normal in our ‘normal’ society. It felt as though I jumped ahead in time to a New Era or Age. It can be pretty entertaining when viewed properly and gives a legitimate leg up when it comes to staying a step ahead of everyone else as far as trends. With every cognitive shift, I felt a deeper link or connection to something bigger and beyond myself as well as a constant vibration of energy. It all seemed to culminate during the holy week in April 2019.
