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:

>>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.
More cyberpunk news: https://archive.ph/ALW9R >Inside Saudi Arabia’s Plan to Build a Skyscraper That Stretches for 75 Miles Arcologies are a staple of Cyberpunk literature, and given this is set in SA and the rulers are OK with killing journalists, the dystopic aspects are well cared for, curated even. >Designers of the Mirror Line propose two parallel structures traversing mountains and desert as part of a futuristic development to transform the kingdom Do they care about the environment? With 2030 as completion deadline, I cannot imagine any environmental reviews will stop this.
Since this thread turned to Cyberpunk news, let us have some more: >'MAX HEADROOM' BOOTS UP REBOOT AT AMC FROM 'HALT AND CATCH FIRE' CO-CREATOR; MATT FREWER TO RETURN https://www.syfy.com/syfy-wire/max-headroom-reboot-amc-matt-frewer-halt-catch-fire >Max Headroom is making a comeback. Deadline reports that AMC Networks is developing a reboot of the staple of 1980s pop culture with the help of Halt and Catch Fire co-creator Christopher Cantwell and producer Elijah Wood, whose company SpectreVision is attached to the project. >Matt Frewer, who originated the Max Headroom character in 1985, is also set to return to reprise his role, so get ready for eerily perfect hair and frequent glitching.
More Cyberpunk news: >Long-lasting, dissociable improvements in working memory and long-term memory in older adults with repetitive neuromodulation https://www.nature.com/articles/s41593-022-01132-3 Advanced trans cranial stimulation improves memory.
Even more Cyberpunk news: >Tornado Cash and collateral damage https://lwn.net/Articles/904960/ >[...The] US government sanctioned the Tornado Cash cryptocurrency mixer for money laundering. It was removed from GitHub, but that is unlikely to work.
The Peripheral - season 1 trailer is out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSaWHbCSmRI It is strange to me that they first point out it is by tre creators of Westworld, when the real point is that it is based on a story by Wm Gibson. Perhaps "based on" indicates they are reimagine it a bit too far.
Some security news from Google, which hints of a dystopian/cyberpunk angle, hidden somewhere: https://www.phoronix.com/news/Google-KataOS >Google Announces KataOS As Security-Focused OS, Leveraging Rust & seL4 Microkernel >Google this week has announced the release of KataOS as their newest operating system effort focused on embedded devices running ambient machine learning workloads. KataOS is security-minded, exclusively uses the Rust programming language, and is built atop the seL4 microkernel as its foundation. >KataOS is intended for use with the ever-growing number of smart devices with a particular emphasis on embedded hardware running machine learning applications. Given the increasing industry focus of RISC-V, that CPU architecture is a primary support focus for KataOS. Google's Open-Source Blog announced: Smart devices have been more "smart" than secure, it will be interesting to follow this project.

More news on BCI (brain computer interfacing): >THIS IMPLANT TURNS BRAIN WAVES INTO WORDS https://spectrum.ieee.org/brain-computer-interface-speech >In our pilot study, we draped a thin, flexible electrode array over the surface of the volunteer’s brain. The electrodes recorded neural signals and sent them to a speech decoder, which translated the signals into the words the man intended to say. It was the first time a paralyzed person who couldn’t speak had used neurotechnology to broadcast whole words—not just letters—from the brain. Seems these guys are overtaking Neuralink.
>>486 Interesting. The issue with tech like this always comes down to ethics and openness. Giving people the ability to speak is great until everything they say is being analyzed and they can't afford the cost of repair when their proprietary wetware goes awry.
>>487 Everything you say is already being analyzed Friend. It will be no different for these poor sotts tbh.
>>488 In the vicinity of an active microphone (phones especially) sure, but it is still possible (for now) to say things to someone in person without it being logged.
>>488 In this case we also risk that everything we think will also be extracted and analysed. Even if the readers in here will not do anything as stupid as installing the iBrane from certain lifestyle appliance manufacturers, you can bet your bottom dollar that many will. And what they recall will also include you if you have been in their presence. We already know FB does this with images taken of people without an FB account.
Major security news: >Top Zeus Botnet Suspect “Tank” Arrested in Geneva https://krebsonsecurity.com/2022/11/top-zeus-botnet-suspect-tank-arrested-in-geneva/ >Vyacheslav “Tank” Penchukov, the accused 40-year-old Ukrainian leader of a prolific cybercriminal group that stole tens of millions of dollars from small to mid-sized businesses in the United States and Europe, has been arrested in Switzerland, according to multiple sources.
