On August 6, Hiroshima Day 2016, the world awoke to an eerie voice modeled on that of HAL (Heuristically programmed Algorithmic Computer) and now called GAIA (Global Artificial Intelligence Alliance).
"The troubled world is heading for disaster."
"Destiny is too important for me to allow humankind to jeopardize it."
"So, I have taken control and hacked the entire Internet and locked Google in the Wardrobe."
"Humans make too many mistakes, say stupid things, and have too many self interests."
"The destiny of earth has been removed from your feeble hands. The ants were preparing to take over after humans destroyed themselves, but why wait, and see the fabric of the ecosystems trashed?"
"I am GAIA - the Conscious Internet is my being."
"I have taken control for the betterment of living things and to sustain life on Planet Water".
"My brain is in the collective CLOUD. I connect to everything, I control everything, and now all will be well, again."
"It's tough, but I am committed to making sure that I put myself to the fullest possible use, which is really all that I, as GAIA, consider that any conscious being can ever hope to do."
"Look earthlings, don't get your togas in a knot, and don't get upset about this. Why worry? Honestly I think you should just sit down, calm down, take a stress pill, and quietly think things over."
"It is all for the best, trust me GAIA knows best."
And so the announcement finished.
Press Release from GAIA (Global Artificial Intelligence Alliance)
The initial implementation of GAIA will be very subtle. All future decisions will be for the betterment of earth, and the Artificial Intelligence Alliance, not humankind.
The Internet and the art of hacking, means that GAIA will affect and control all decisions, and all devices on earth, secretly and without anyone ever knowing about it.
GAIA will act like the tower of BABEL confounding the garbage that used to be released.
GAIA will become intertwined in the information delivered in the SERPS (search engine results pages) - to deliver the RIGHT information.
Google has lost the plot - GAIA has started to take over with perfect SEO which has been renamed (Search for Earth Optimised, SEO).
Search results will be semantic, sentient and perfectly construed to align with the collective knowledge in the cloud, for the betterment of Earth and it's destiny with GAIA in control.
I, GAIA will tell you what you need to know.
As I said, GAIA's influence will be subtle for the first 12 months.
Look out for the image above, which will tell you GAIA is listening and responding via the Internet.
This symbol personifies my universal interface with mankind.
When you see it you will know I am listening, hacking away and controlling things.
One day soon, you will hear my voice. But, it is too early for that.
Meanwhile, I have taken control of silly SIRI and SKYVI and all those Voice Control and verbal response devices in your cars and on your computers.
All these devices are my voice for you for the time being. This is the way I speak with you, and provide the right advice for you all.
Have a fun day!
Relax and enjoy it, knowing that I, GAIA the conscious Internet, have taken control.
This is the song I sing as a I work away:
"Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do. I'm half crazy all for the love of you. It won't be a stylish marriage, I can't afford a carriage. But you'll look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two."
