Fuck lame "high tech" VR and automasturbators Anonymous 12/13/2021 (Mon) 09:27:28 No.263
We live in an era of cyberpunk "lite". All the dystopian components are in place, like behemoth corporate control of govt, mass surveillance, crappy automated services. But there's no space economy, no galactic federation. No exploration. Were stuck. And rather than make the new shit, the powers are instead looking at how to enslave people inside a virtual reality. Why build when you can breed more slaves? Why do anything IRL that can be done with a bit of processing power that fools your mind into believing, releasing its sweet dopamine, which costs essentially nothing, and can be altered or removed at the will of the programmer. And poof its gone, your whole world, all those tokens you earned and sprites you so carefully assembled. Stop. Don't fall for this shitty excuse for a technological world with its bad plot. Seek the truth outside. Its up to you.

>>263 >We live in an era of cyberpunk "lite". Seems pretty done and complete to me. >All the dystopian components are in place, like behemoth corporate control of govt, mass surveillance, crappy automated services. Yes >But there's no space economy, no galactic federation. That belongs to space opera, the genre that the Movement tried to dump. And they succeeded. >No exploration. Were stuck. I see people increasingly talk about stagnation, and the FAQ mentions StagnationPunk. >And rather than make the new shit, the powers are instead looking at how to enslave people inside a virtual reality. That is just more money making dystopia.
>>264 >Galactic Federation >30 min of person claiming to be in contact w benevolent lizard person named Trebor 'ytny selling pineal decalcification supplement >yea_doubt.jpg Also he echoes the 4IR belief of useless eaters or "fleas" being purged in two more years™, or so for Gaia. Well meaned esoteric tropes laced w Antichrist pilled stuff - the fleas ate a byproduct of the society this regime created, they are not parasites. If reality is elusive, so is power and control.

>>265 > space opera This is my point exactly, and I disagree they have succeeded they simply want to enjoy the benefits of 2000 years of struggle without truly achieving what has been for all intents and purposes granted - space faring civilization. All else is lies. Its as though the world has decided suicide is the best option. >StagnationPunk, faq help newfag w link? I don't see it
>>267 > help newfag w link? I don't see it Sure. The updated FAQ was posted over in neighbouring thread >>213 https://files.catbox.moe/pwpib5.htm
>>263 >Why build when you can breed more slaves? Is slavery really cost effective these days? With enough robots it will not be. Bots are expected to make over a hundred thousand drivers unemployed and unemployable in the US alone, so you will have no end of volunteers. >Why do anything IRL that can be done with a bit of processing power that fools your mind into believing, releasing its sweet dopamine, which costs essentially nothing, and can be altered or removed at the will of the programmer. People will still need food, medicine, shelter etc. Matrix style pods are unlikely to be here anytime soon. Perhaps prisoners will be a test group, after all there are 2+ million Americans in jail. So pods or Eudeamon style banishment has a market, just a limited one. >And poof its gone, your whole world, all those tokens you earned and sprites you so carefully assembled. I am quite happy to live in the real world, where I can have backups. >Stop. Don't fall for this shitty excuse for a technological world with its bad plot. Seek the truth outside. Its up to you. FB has research projects for brain computer interfaces with two way communications. That does not sound healthy at all but people will try that. I won't.
>>269 >people will try [unproven VR technology] but I won't Damn right. I won't either, but the PTB wants to try force, for everyone's "safety" which is the death of every shitty failed society to date
>>268 Thanks anon
>>263 This as far as you get? Tsk tsk.
>>275 Putting all criminals into banesuits will probably not require much force, if any. So first there will be 2 million banes, then another 100k every year. This could save astronomical sums of money so this would be a roaring success, even if nobody would ever get out of banishment, ever.
>>263 we live in a fucked up world where both the corporations and the government are trying to destroy us
>>269 >FB has research projects for brain computer interfaces with two way communications. That does not sound healthy at all but people will try that. I won't. Holy shit thats literally Cyna Corp

>>287 Previously, Iphone owners discovered their old phones slowed down whenever new models were released. In this future, implanted Iphone owners will discover a sudden and unstoppable craving for the new models whenever they are announced. What could possibly go wrong?

>>292 i see absolutely nothing that could possibly ever go wrong here :))))
>>292 >>293 There's a good reason the goyim are known as 'cattle' by their globalist kike masters, Anon.
>>293 Have you read Eudeamon? It takes this concept to another interesting world.
>>296 no i havent can you describe it for me?

>>297 Very condensed: in the future the problem with prisoner overcrowding is solved by banishment: prisoners have a custodian inserted (like Neuralink but two way), put in an anonymising bane suit and banished. It is a full sized book, put on the net by the author for free reading:
>>298 Somehow this was posted before I could add the link: http://www.evil-dolly.com/assets/eudeamon.pdf
>>298 hmm interesting
>>299 thx

>>300 Yes, it has many interesting concepts. Pic. is mildly spoilerish.

>>322 >literally hot-linking direct to an official 5-eyes site. Heh. Well it just goes to show that 1 out of every 3 on /cyber/ is a glownigger. Just curious what you faggots want from our types anyway? Can't find sufficient trannys any longer? Maybe they all fucked off to Kiev? I'd suggest you have a look at Good Will Hunting for a brief synopsis of our answer friend. :^)
>>323 Well, I take it for given that the interested parties take appropriate caution including VPN, TOR, use of archive.is and using the neighbour's WIFI. If you prefer the indirect approach, the article that referenced the call for submissions, was this one: https://www.electronicsweekly.com/news/dasa-seeks-gan-human-augmentation-proposals-2022-05/ For more glowing bonuses: https://www.electronicsweekly.com/news/business/cyber-security-conference-south-wales-next-week-2022-05/
Just when you thought it could not get worse: >Facebook Is Receiving Sensitive Medical Information from Hospital Websites https://themarkup.org/pixel-hunt/2022/06/16/facebook-is-receiving-sensitive-medical-information-from-hospital-websites >A tracking tool installed on many hospitals’ websites has been collecting patients’ sensitive health information—including details about their medical conditions, prescriptions, and doctor’s appointments—and sending it to Facebook. This is really valuable data, insurance companies would really like to know who not to offer an insurance and what premium they should charge for the rest. It is hard to imagine this was anything but careful design.
>>342 It is just tiresome at this point. We have all the dystopique elements but none of the cool tech.

>>343 The cool stuff on the horizon closest to us in time, is probably brain computer interfacing (BCI). Of course that too will be perverted. Some will use BCI to let you control stuff, others will no doubt want to read out your private knowledge, and more worrisome of all is that some (FB I think) will use BCI to put thoughts back directly into your brain. That could probably include an overpowering urge to buy whatever they are advertising.
Some sudden bursts of Cyberpunk news relating to VR implementation. First off, Neal Stephenson announces LAMINA1 https://medium.com/@LAMINA1/announcing-lamina1-bb7119d19a0d Combining VR and blockchain this sure is buzzword 2000 compliant. At the same time we have >Meta and other tech giants form metaverse standards body, without Apple https://www.reuters.com/technology/meta-other-tech-giants-form-metaverse-standards-body-without-apple-2022-06-21/ where there no doubt will be a lot of politics and power play. The VRML saga ended badly.
