Decoy of Hope Six: Technology will Save US!

Technology Will Save US!

This Decoy isn’t about whether technology can ‘Help’ us solve ‘Our Problem’ or Not?:

This is rather about believing that in the void of ‘sufficient progress’ with Solving The Problem, and our now dire situation today, ‘we’ are hoping future technology will be the vital missing piece of our Hopeless plan today.

In presenting The Problem as a Carbon Emissions ‘One’, it then becomes ‘A problem‘ seemingly suited to that future ‘Technological’ solution.

At a macro eco-system level there is evidence of this unbounded Hope in belief that Geo-engineering could ultimately provide humans with systems that take over ‘management’ of the entire Earth’s eco-system, from Nature!

Setting aside the anthropocentric arrogance, the level of optimism, and belief in human technological endeavor, is inspirational and seducing in its connection to seemingly simple, global solution. It also supports the historical human journey to Exploit and Dominate:  This Hug Challenge form Nature,  being the Final Quest for Ultimate Human Power.

Yet with our journey moving into the ‘Climate Tragedy’ stage, and Nature clearly ‘wining’, hoping that technology will solve the ‘Big Blockages’ to Success is surely tantamount to placing a very high odds, ‘life or death’ bet, on Casino Extinction? This is covered more in Decoy Nine, here.

The ‘The Big Blockages’ above and the basis for hope of technology solutions are discussed in this WEF article here.

No doubt Technology, and new breakthroughs can help, but a stated elsewhere in my communication, ‘THE problem’ today isn’t just one of ‘Carbon Emissions‘, it’s the exponentially rising mass rape and depletion of ALL the natural, bio-regenerative resources on our planet.

One of the fundamental laws of nature, is that these resources will always be finite, and all those that live on the planet need to do so within the context of limited resource.

Any technology solutions have to comprehend this. Solving an ‘Emissions problem’ using an inordinate amount of another scarce resource to do it, could quite well not be solving the problem, just shifting the focus of the regenerative resource depletion.

I believed that technology could have a vital role in helping transform human behaviour towards a new ideology that is aligned with a finite planet. However while society is still in a mode of wanting pleasurable excess, and ignoring our limits, technology that seemingly imprisons us in constraint by Nature will be resisted at all costs.

No doubt breakthroughs can help, but a stated elsewhere in my communication,  ‘Our Problem’ today isn’t just one of Carbon Emissions, it’s the exponentially rising mass rape and depletion of ALL the natural, bio-regenerative resources on our planet. Essentially a Human One! Read here.

One of the fundamental laws of nature, is that these resources will always be finite, and all those that live on the planet need to do so within the context of limited resource.  I sense there is a Hope that human ingenuity will find a way to alter these fundamental laws of our eco-system’s incredulous design.

Any technology solutions have to comprehend this. Solving an ‘Emissions problem’ using an inordinate amount of another scarce resource to do it, could quite well not be solving the problem, just shifting the focus of the regenerative resource depletion.

I believe that technology could have a vital role in helping transform ‘The Human’ towards a new Ideology that is aligned with a finite planet. However, while society is still in a mode of wanting pleasurable excess, and ignoring our limits, technology that reduces our Freedoms, and seemingly imprisons us in constraint by Nature, will sadly be resisted at all costs.

More soon on my specific technology enabling solution for moving ‘Us’ all to a One Point Zero world! 

With the allure of winning the, ‘Humanity saving’, Casino Jackpot, this Decoy of Hope is not only allowing us to believe we can still pursue the Americanism values of Freedom, and Happiness through ‘More and More’, Material and Wealth abundance, but also Depending on these Americanism values for Solution.
