If you have ever had dealings with Google as a customer, you may have found that their 'customer service' is somewhat lacking. In fact, that is an understatement - I have found them to be one of the all time worst in terms of transparency and integrity when it comes to them doing what they say they will do. There's probably a good reason for this - Google isn't intended to create profit.
The documentary 'Google and the world brain' has generally not been available for free online, but I just discovered that it has been added to archive.org. - within this video you can hear testimony from people who knew the founders of Google before they had success. One of the claims made by Kevin Kelly, founder of Wired Magazine (at 57.32 in the documentary) is that:
"Google was never about creating a search engine, it was about creating an AI"
So while the world might assume that Google is just a regular example of creative capitalism that seeks to help them improve their daily lives - there is quite clearly an ulterior agenda behind the scenes. How many people realise that when they use Google to search, to arrange their lives and even to document their business plans and highly private activity - their data is most likely finding it's way into Artificial Intelligence systems behind closed doors? Isn't it amazing that so many science fiction movies have been made on the subject of humanity being taken over by rogue AI systems and yet we have one of the largest power centers on the planet doing literally everything it can to facilitate a kind of social/technological equation that could actually make that a reality? Isn't it even more amazing that almost no-one realises this yet?
I posted recently on how Facebook's founder has invested $5 Billion into a program of inserting mind control implants into the brains of monkeys! I know this sounds insane and it is! However, the insanity is not in me for reporting this fact to you; the insanity is that it is actually real news.
Let's never forget that when power empires are created, the people at the top of the hierarchy are placed ever more to make terrible, psychopathic and heartless decisions that harm many. This is a key reason why humanity must evolve beyond subordination and hierarchy.
