I saw all this posted in a strange and obscure forum. What the h*ll does any of this mean?

"It is formless. It is the very discipline and morality that
people invoke so often. How can anyone hope to eliminate it? As long as this world exists,
so will it. Don't you know that my plans have your interests, not ours, in
mind? Listen carefully. The mapping of the human genome was completed early this century.
As a result, the evolutionary log of the human race lay open to us. We started with genetic engineering, and in the end, we succeeded in
digitizing life itself. But there are things not covered by genetic information.
Human memories, ideas. Culture. History.
Genes don't contain any record of human history.
Is it something that should not be passed on?
Should that information be left at the mercy of nature?
We've always kept records of our lives. Through words, pictures,
symbols... from tablets to books...
But not all the information was inherited by later generations.
A small percentage of the whole was selected and processed, then
passed on. Not unlike genes, really.
That's what history is.
But in the current, digitized world,
trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all
its triteness.
Never fading, always accessible.
Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander...
All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an
alarming rate.
It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution.
You seem to think that my plan is one of censorship.
What I propose to do is not to control content,
but to create context.
The digital society furthers human flaws and selectively rewards
development of convenient half-truths.
Just look at the strange juxtapositions of morality around you.
Billions spent on new weapons in order to humanely murder other
Rights of criminals are given more respect than the privacy of their
Although there are people suffering in poverty, huge donations are
made to protect endangered species.
Everyone grows up being told the same thing.
"Be nice to other people,
but beat out the competition!"
"You're special." "Believe in yourself and you will succeed."
But it's obvious from the start that only a few can succeed...
You exercise your right to "freedom" and this is the result.
All rhetoric to avoid conflict and protect each other from hurt.
The untested truths spun by different interests continue to churn and
accumulate in the sandbox of political correctness and value systems.
Everyone withdraws into their own small gated community, afraid of a
larger forum.
They stay inside their little ponds,
leaking whatever "truth" suits them into the growing cesspool of
society at large.
The different cardinal truths neither clash nor mesh.
No one is invalidated, but nobody is right.
Not even natural selection can take place here. The world is being
engulfed in "truth."
And this is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, but a whimper.
We're trying to stop that from happening.
It's our responsibility as rulers.
Just as in genetics, unnecessary information and memory must be
filtered out
to stimulate the evolution of the species.
I am more than qualified to judge worthiness, who else could wade through the sea of garbage you people
retrieve valuable truths and even interpret their meaning for later
That's what it means to create context.
You lack the qualifications to exercise free will.
Does something like a "self" exist inside of you?
That which you call "self" serves as nothing more than a mask to
cover your own being.
In this era of ready-made 'truths',
"self" is just something used to preserve those positive emotions
that you occasionally feel...
...Another possibility is that "self" is a concept you conveniently
borrowed under the logic
that it would endow you with some sense of strength...
Ironic that although "self" is something that you yourself fashioned,
every time something goes wrong, you turn around and place the blame
on something else.
Building a, "It's not my fault. It's not your fault." mentality.
In denial, you simply resort to looking for another,
more convenient "truth" in order to make yourself feel better.
...leaving behind in an instant the so-called "truth" you once
Should someone like that be able to decide what is "truth"?
Should someone like you even have the right to decide?
You've done nothing but abuse your freedom.
You don't deserve to be free!
We're not the ones smothering the world. You are.
The individual is supposed to be weak. But far from powerless,
a single person has the potential to ruin the world.
And the age of digitized communication has given even more power to
the individual.
Too much power for an immature species.
Building a legacy involves figuring out what is wanted, and what
needs to be done for that goal.
All this, you used to struggle with. Now, we think for you.
We are your guardians after all.
I can control human thought and behavior. Anything can be quantified nowadays.
What I hope to achieve is C.I.S.O.S., it stands for is Collective Intelligence for Societal Order and Sanity...

My monsters, enjoy yourselves..."

Any ideas?

Re: Interpretation.

Someone venting and envisioning a socal revolution put humanity, as a whole back into the right track of true advancement.

Re: Interpretation.

Well yeah! But you don't need to be drowned in textual vomit just to get the point.

Re: Interpretation.

That's what venting is at times. Incoherent rambling.

Re: Interpretation.

Oh, well, does any of that stuff hold any water?

I bring war to wimps

The Catalyst
Well yeah! But you don't need to be drowned in textual vomit just to get the point.

I didn't even bother reading it.. it was too long and unfun. Also you just know some fat kid like Hexi is going to read and analyze it anyway.

I'm only replying because I thought it was funny that someone wasted their time reading that abstract crap. Whoever wrote it obviously wants to die and as long as they cut the lawn first.. I completely accept them turning it over and killing themselves VIA lawnmower man style. Which was a great movie for it's time. Stephen King used to be interesting. I used to want to bury my dead cats in pet cemetery. That way they could come back evil and I could kill them again! J/K about the last part... well when referring to cats.

Anyway my rambling is more interesting than your lame conversation so when emo is done offing himself... why don't you jump into the lawnmower as well, Cattleyst.

Even Toby is more interesting than you. Seriously, sometimes I miss his contributions but then I see him and I'm like "ah he didn't give up!" but it's all like "yay the cat I kick in the corner for psychological XP is back!" I can't level up off him anymore but I admire his willpower to continue.

Or maybe I miss like minded individuals and wished we ruled the world. We can do it! I'm serious. I'm on the 2nd season of "Pinky and the Brain" and I'm telling you.. I feel it... they're gonna show us teh trix.
