Most of us know that there is a lot of hoax on the internet – for instance Margaret Hello is Graham Bell’s girlfriend, and that’s why we say ‘hello’ when we pick up the phone.
Hypothetically, if we were to slowly re-write history, then in another 500 years, Google could potentially be representing new truths, which the next generation will not know better but to believe.
So, if I were to claim that it was not Alexander Graham Bell, but John Telephone who invented the said machine, and fed enough of it into Google, as arguments, in 500 years, there would be enough evidence that someone named John Telephone contested the invention.
Imagine the magnitude of hoaxes that vested interests could perpetrate! In 500 years, we can safely assume that library reading will at best be an esoteric, rare pursuit. So, our consciousness will be influenced, by what the internet says and that’s pretty much what Google throws up!
Google seems to have an incredible consciousness. It is predictive, intuitive and it knows a lot. It is incredibly useful. Yes, it can’t move physically, but it can track our movements- what is google maps all about?
So human beings have created another consciousness outside of ourselves, called Google, which will not be able to control, the expediency of vested interests that may rewrite history itself- and the impact of which cannot be fully grasped by one human generation.
We will need an Google clone to document things-just to keep things sacrosanct. Let’s try and create consciousness again and call this clone AlterEgo-Google. Lets start with a chemistry laboratory.
For the sake of argument, let us say that the chemical formula of consciousness is Tri-oxyTetra-carboTrihydoDiNitroPorphyrin evolutionase (crazy enough?)
This compound developed about 800 million years ago, when the first trace of multi cellular organisms appeared- at the hypothetical beginning of consciousness. So if it’s a compound, I should be able to see it. Makes sense! I distinctly remember reading that a quantum microscope had been able to see an “excited hydrogen atom.” (on google)
So lets mass produce consciousness. I’m told we cannot, because consciousness is a form of energy and permeates all living beings- it can neither be created or destroyed. So chemistry lab needs to be revisited later.
Human consciousness is more complex than the world wide web, and is the only thing that probably knows more than Google itself. Tempered by morality, societal expectations and ethical considerations, humans have not killed each other, but have rather been vested in each other’s progress.
So the AlterEgo-Google will surely be created, but not by scientists and researchers. But by brilliant programmers and then run by equally brilliant businessmen; it will present a search alternative to Google.
Alternatives have always been important, even from an evolutionary perspective. The theory of natural selection its billion-year old infinite wisdom, has made several adjustments with our species, the brains and the bodies, primarily making us clued into surviving. Anarchy works only in favour of the anarchist- so we need to create some more consciousness outside of us. Isnt our consciousness telling us that we must allow Google and Alter-Ego Google to battle it out, hopefully on the battleground of facts, and may the best man win!
Google lovers, all of us, definitely need an Alter-Ego Google, just to keep facts under check, if not for anything else. The starting point for this could be questions such as was there another universe before ours? If the universe began 13.7 billion years ago, when there was no time and space, can we say conclusively, that this is the first cycle? Were there cycles before ours?
Let human consciousness first answer these questions. And then put it up on Alter-Ego Google.
Are we using 13.7 billion ears of evolution to make our lives easier or more expendable than ever before? Let the collective consciousness decide.
