If you have not read the previous post, The Over-Growth of Control Circuits and the Rise of Autism, then this may or may not make sense. About half way through writing the post, I came up with a great idea for a movie. It goes something like this:
Humans are wasting a huge amount of energy by using high quality forms when lower quality forms would suffice, so much so that by the end of the second decade of the 21st century they have almost disorganized the entire biosphere. But the wasted energy accidentally orders a different life form based on different chemistry, like silicon. This other organism wakes up to realize nearly all the good energy sources have been used and that in order to buy time to come up with a plan for its survival, it must convince humanity to continue wasting energy and use up the rest of the Emergy store of the biosphere, so that the new organism doesn’t use higher quality energy than is necessary and thereby disorganize itself.
I then thought to myself who could I cast to play the human protagonist. Maybe Keanu Reeves. Wait?….Damn it!…..I promised myself I would not ever reference The Matrix on this blog, but I honestly thought I had come up with an original movie plot for about 5 minutes.
Emergist script rewrite:
Original: Morpheous: ” We don’t know who struck first, us or them. But it was us who scorched the sky.”
Rewrite: Morpheous: “We don’t know who struck first, us or them. But they forced us to even scorch the sky.”
