Beyond doubt the coronavirus debacle and the ever increasing belief in the 'great world reset' has boosted the use of technology in our daily lives.  So much so, it's hard to imagine how we ever lived without it!

But as with every development over the decades and centuries, with good also comes bad.  As matters stand, it can't be denied, every aspect of technology grows richer by the day.  Slowly but surely I believe the world's population is being compromised, forced, into total reliance on technology for living.

The coronvirus scandal appears to be at the root of this rapidly growing industry.  Personally I see advantages and I see disadvantages.  Previously we have been in a position to pick and choose what is to our liking and reject all else - in my case facebook, twitter and other like minded social network platforms but it's fast approaching the situation where we no longer have that choice.  In short, we are being forced into living by technology alone.

I don't like this prospect for the future.  I like to be free to make my own choices.

Over the past year. since the advent of 'the virus', I read oh so many ideas for the future, some perhaps already in existence but waiting in the sidelines to become our way of life - forced way of life.

Social distancing, limited movement (read isolation), eradication of inferior life forms - appears to be the threatened future for the world.  I read of human interaction with robots as a part of life;  virtual travel;  education at home;  working from home;  online banking;  shopping online; online medical care blah blah blah.  So our future we must expect to be confined to barracks for our entire lives.

A long while ago I bought a robotic vacuum cleaner - yes it was a Hoover.  You switch it on, give it a nudge and it travels around by itself picking-up everything in it's path - well almost everything.  It didn't work .... but I digress!

So here I am, bemoaning technology whilst staring at my laptop and waiting at home for an online delivery.   rolleyes

Put digital technology to work ‘for those who need it most’: UN Secretary-General

Digital connectivity, in places like India, is indispensable to overcome the pandemic, and for a sustainable and inclusive recovery (file photo).


[Nice little plug there for Lenovo]

While the COVID-19 pandemic has shown the importance of digital technologies and the benefits of connectivity, it has also exacerbated inequalities, including basic online access, UN Secretary-General António Guterres said on Tuesday in a video message to the closing session of the Internet Governance Forum

Precisely!

This is the want of 'Control Central'.

It has no bearing on practicality nor comfortability nor the desire for sustainable enjoyable living standards.

Good luck with that one! Delusions of grandeur methinks.

These people love the word 'rules' don't they?

The beginning of the end to schooling as we know it..

The Growing Age of Science and Technology Scre1125

It's all part of the plan for our controlled future.

There are advancements also with online medical care, initially to target rural districts that don't have easy access to a doctor or hospital. The beginning of the end of medical care as we know it. In this particular development there will have to be a way, using technology, to examine the patient.

What does our future hold - some sort of implant that monitors the body's functions that can be transmitted to another device to replace the doctor/patient consultation? I believe moves are already being made in that direction.

Rings are currently being marketed, for personal use, to detect whether the wearer has the COVID-19 virus.

My mind boggleth!

You only need to go outside to see how people are being controlled. Mask wearing zombies staring blankly into their mobile phones, wandering about aimlessly.

Children in the park desperately trying to get their parents attention to push them on the swings and slides, all to no avail, they are too busy looking into their devices.

You see people at beauty spots, taking selfies instead of enjoying the surroundings.

Complete and utter morons.

My daughter came to visit with her hubby and two children for the first time this year a couple of months ago....after about an hour hubby was sitting in the armchair watching the telly, eldest granddaughter on his lap looking at her iphone, daughter and youngest granddaughter on the sofa both looking at their iphones....and I was sitting in another chair just watching them looking at their screens.

It,s happened to me Jill, I was really upset for a while. I got up, went outside and started weeding the garden. After a while one of the  visitor's came out and said " we wondered where you had gone ".

I said, " I could see you were all really busy with important messaging, so I thought I'd leave you to it".

The rest of the visit went well.

Yep, I find it rude...but they obviously consider it normal  i don\'t know

Mind you, my sister and brother in law, who are pensioners, are just as bad. I haven't got a smart phone so I wouldn't know how vital they apparently are. I've managed perfectly well all my life without one. 

My youngest granddaughter had a smartphone for xmas when she was 4. I didn't much care for that to be honest, but not my business.

But I do find it sad to see them staring at their phones all the time. I've been told they've even got Alexa's in their bedrooms too!

I was recently waiting in the bank to collect new bit of plastic (they don't like you paying with dirty lucre anymore) with me broomstick, behind a  girl - I reckon 14 or 15 years young.

Whatever she and the bloke behind the desk were doing, the whole transaction was through the use of their individual i-phones.  He say something to her, she went straight to her phone - she say something to him, he went straight to his phone.

My turn .... I used the good old verbal form of communication albeit behind red and white tape - the great divide.  As I was about to leave, he asked me if I received the pin number - what pin number says I?  For online banking says he.  Nah says I, no intention of banking online.  You should says he, it's better for you!

Please allow me to decide what is 'better for me'.  I bid you good day!

Cometh the day, I won't have any choice.

The dentist is going to be a bit awkward think .  Will they give an online tutorial how to extract your own teeth?  Or are we talking implants again, kangeroo implants so teeth regrow without the need for human intervenion?

How online gaming has become a social lifeline

Gamers have known for a long time something that everyone else is starting to figure out: there’s community connection on the other side of a screen.

“Our entire lives have led up to this,” my friends joked with me in mid-March.

I was sitting in my tiny New York City apartment, panicky and coming to terms with the reality that I’d be trapped inside for weeks, potentially months. But my friends reassured me that as lifelong video game enthusiasts, the prospect of sitting on a sofa in front of a TV for an interminable stretch would be a cakewalk. After all, gamers like me do already spend plenty of time in front of our screens all on our own.

But even sitting alone for hours, gamers aren’t necessarily isolated. In many cases, far from it. With the rise of social media, gamers – particularly in Gen Z – have perfected the art of building communities in and around video games. Gamers don’t just compete with strangers on the internet, but forge genuine, enduring friendships.

In this age of long-haul social distancing and mental-health strains, gamers have long had a tool that’s now bringing some relief to those who’ve never picked up a controller before. The explosive growth of gaming during the pandemic has shown that many have found a new outlet for much-needed connection in isolation.

It saddens me to see kids as young as 5 years fixated on a computer screen, massive earphones flashing red and green, playing mindless games.

You can even buy chairs specifically designed for gamers.

Most young people have already lost that power.  Schools gave up trying to teach proper diction, grammar, vocabulary and the use of a comprehensible accent a very long time ago.
It is part of the left wing strategy to keep people DOWN.
Only those with educated parents who take the time to speak, sing, and educate at home during the long periods between compulsory but wasted trips to school will be given the chance to succeed.

A few years ago, I was picking the grandson up from infant school, a mother who was also picking her children up, stayed in her land-rover  until the very last minute on her phone.

When the buzzer went, she jumped out of the land-rover, escorted the kids to it, put them in the back seat, stuck a dummy in their mouths and handed them some sort of electronic game. Not a word was spoken, she then drove off with the phone clamped on her shoulder, head on one side holding it there.

And yet, and yet, as YuvanHarari observed in his book  "21 lessons for the 21st Century" [which you can find in pdf form on line and download to read at leisure. it is 250 pages]
There is something infinitely depressing about young people who live by their 1500 "friends" on Twatbook or Faceplant or whatever they are called, and then walk down a street and suddenly realise that all 1500 could walk past and not even recognise OR CARE who they really were.

Little surprise that figures for depression and suicide are so high even among people with smart phones – or perhaps especially among people  . . . 

If your whole identity can be expressed as 01001101 01111001 00100000 01101110 01100001 01101101 01100101 00100000 01101001 01110011 00100000 01010000 01100101 01110100 01100101 01110010 00101110 00100000 01001001 00100000 01100001 01101101 00100000 00110111 00110000 00100000 01111001 01100101 01100001 01110010 01110011 00100000 01101111 01101100 01100100  
than that is ultimately all you are.

Incidentally that is REAL code, and you can translate it back again - on line - if you really want to

In Brave New World the deltas, gammas and epsilons were bred to be cleaners, and lift operators.
In the real world the "Trigger" characters WERE street sweepers and bin men
the Gammas and deltas bashed metal and lifted heavy things and lay on their sides deep underground hacking at the coal face.

But now we demand a skilled operator with an HGV licence to operate even the bin lorry and the mechanism which lifts the wheelie bins. Lifts are largely self-operated. Coal was finally mined by two skilled technicians in white coats at either end of a vast rip machine which powered itself forwards and channeled the coal onto conveyor belts which took it to ground level, without the intervention of any one else.

The modern educational system does not Educate people with low IQ. It selects out and skims off those with higher IQs.    The grammar school system was largely responsible for this, and after four generations has done its job of increasing social distance, and reducing social mobility.  (My father's side of the family being a good case history.)

So now the question remain . . 
What are we going to do with people with low IQ.
Those with IQ lower than 85 make up 15% of the population.   15 out of every 100 people. 150 out of 1,000
NINE MILLION people in the UK (assuming 60m popl.)

[We are not allowed to talk about IQ so far as it relates to "background" or "inheritance" because Marx specifically said it was irrelevant, and Social background was what mattered. Failing to notice the connection between social background and IQ, of course.
And notably failing to include Hamilton, Tiger Woods, Archbishop Tutu, Archbishop Santamu, Sir Trevor Macdonald, Mike Fuller (who ?  You didn't even know. He was Chief Constable of Kent.  And is a black man, but forbade anyone to mention it, journalists, reporters . . .). Obama, The Williams sisters, Mo Farah, Bolt . . .
Just think what they might have achieved without being held back by waythism.]

Some of the funniest mental contortions adopted in the Soviet block in the 50s involved investigation of parents by 
"The complexity of the tasks" they were undertaking.   Priceless.
Even modern sociologists (a left wing pseudo-science) diligently explore the relationship between single-motherhood and low Soc. Econ. Status, failing or refusing to note that on average single mothers have IQs 
1 standard deviation below the rest.  
They are measuring the same thing, but dare not say it.

Which leaves us with the very real problem -
What is Society going to do with people who intellectually cannot keep up with IT and modern technology.
What do we do with tens of millions of unemployables.  In the UK
And across the world ?

My answer:


Nothing. 

They will become excluded by “default” as it is the Citizens job to support the Social State. You are supposed to find a way by working extra hours, or getting a second part time job to pay your way in Society. “Du bist Deutschland” YOU are Germany!

It is not the States job to help you to find work, they are only there to make sure you find yourself a job.

If there are no Jobs, that is not the States problem. It is yours.

You will be happy of course. Because the best thing you can have is nothing. Then they cannot take anything away from you. You will be free. Free to collect Universal income.

This is where Americans are now heading. A Socialist State based on the German model. Unless Trump overturns the “Results “.

I would recommend people Research HARTZ 4 and Mini Jobs. 

If you become “surplus to requirements” it is all you will get.

I venture to suggest, its impossible for the average intellect to understand the depths of modern technology, even the younger generations born into the technocratic age. Indeed, why should the people be forced into a situation that stunts their personal identity and/or limits their potential.

That aside, being a bit of a fossil myself, something is going on locally that I find very weird.

I have an i-phone which goes with me everywhere, mainly because it's the source of music I've downloaded which I play when driving about. Almost every time I play something on any one day, guaranteed the very next day that same music is played on local radio. That's a wide range of music, not genre specific.

Could of course be coincidence but as someone once said, once or twice a coincidence but after that you start to think - or words to that effect!
