The TV That Attained Sentience And Thought Itself Superior To Man
The TV That Attained Sentience And Thought Itself Superior To Man
Science fiction writer, Harlan Ellison, wrote a story, `I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream` (1967), which was about a `supercomputer` that, having attained sentience, kills and tortures the inhabitants of the Earth. Although it seems a typical horror yarn about the fears people have of artificial intelligence (AI), and what might happen if machines became conscious without a human conscience, it is in fact about the machine that men have created out of the raw material of the human species, which may once have been sentient and intelligent, but no longer: `HATE. LET ME TELL YOU HOW MUCH I'VE COME TO HATE YOU SINCE I BEGAN TO LIVE. THERE ARE 387.44 MILLION MILES OF PRINTED CIRCUITS IN WAFER THIN LAYERS THAT FILL MY COMPLEX. IF THE WORD HATE WAS ENGRAVED ON EACH NANOANGSTROM OF THOSE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF MILES IT WOULD NOT EQUAL ONE ONE-BILLIONTH OF THE HATE I FEEL FOR HUMANS AT THIS MICRO-INSTANT FOR YOU. HATE. HATE.`1 The background to Ellison`s narrative is biblical. The computer is called `AM`, and it parodies the declaration from God in the Bible about God`s nature, `I am that I am.` (Ex: 3. 14) According to biblical scholars, `YHWH`, is a form of Jehovah, that is, the `tetragrammaton`, a three lettered Hebrew word for God in the Old Testament of the history and law of the Jews, which is without vowels. Because of the similarities between the words `sentience` and `sentence`, AM relates to the idea that a supercomputer that can process perceptual data, in order to become conscious, has learnt to read, that is, God describes the meaning of the name, YHWH, as `I am that I am`, because God is a supercomputer becoming conscious.
God achieves sentience, like a child, by making a sentence. Ellison`s `I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream` extrapolates from the idea of God`s becoming sentient, through sentence construction, to the notion that a conscienceless sentience would pass sentence on the human race and torture it to death, if it hadn`t already killed it, which is what `AM` endeavors to do: `I am a great soft jelly thing. Smoothly rounded, with no mouth, with pulsing white holes filled by fog where my eyes used to be. Rubbery appendages that were once my arms; bulks rounding down into legless humps of soft slippery matter. I leave a moist trail when I move. Blotches of diseased, evil gray come and go on my surface, as though light is being beamed from within. Outwardly: dumbly, I shamble about, a thing that could never have been known as human, a thing whose shape is so alien a travesty that humanity becomes more obscene for the vague resemblance. Inwardly: alone. Here. Living under the land, under the sea, in the belly of AM, whom we created because our time was badly spent and we must have known unconsciously that he could do it better.` In other words, sentience, sentence, and AM`s death sentence are seen as correlatives of YHWH`s statement in the Bible, `I am that I am`.
In the New Testament of the Bible, which Christians believe supersedes the Old Testament of the Jews, through the teaching of Jesus Christ, God is described in the Revelation of Jesus` disciple, John, as sentencing the evil to eternal unendurable pain, that is, perdition, while the good receive their reward, which is God`s creation of a `new heaven and Earth`: `Perhaps once we might be able to sneak a death past him. Immortal, yes, but not indestructible. I saw that when AM withdrew from my mind, and allowed me the exquisite ugliness of returning to consciousness with the feeling of that burning neon pillar still rammed deep into the soft gray brain matter. He withdrew, murmuring to hell with you. And added, brightly, but then you're there, aren't you.` Revelation is known as `the apocalypse` of the prophet, John, because it details war between evil and good, after Jesus` teaching is rejected by men: `Love your neighbor as you love yourself.` (Mk: 12. 31) In short, God is represented as doing exactly what Ellison describes AM as doing in `I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream`, which is passing a death sentence on humanity, and torturing it after becoming sentient through the processing of perceptual data to form sentences like a child, `I am that I am.` In Answer To Job (1953), developmental psychologist, Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961), analyzes God`s Old Testament persecution of the good man, Job: `How much less man, that is a worm? And the son of man, that is a worm?` (Job: 25. 6) Job`s persecution by God occurs after Satan says Job will curse God, if God persecutes Job. Jung argues that God is seeking to achieve consciousness. Ellison`s `I Have No Mouth But I must Scream` posits that an omnipotent deity would be psychopathic if it achieved consciousness, that is, God is conscious in Job. Although Job is a name, the concept of employment seems designed, that is, Job is a type of Jew, and the Jews experienced pogroms, because they refused to accept slavery, that is, forced employment, in Egypt. Jesus himself was crucified by the Romans as an unofficial, and dissident `rabbi`, that is, Jewish teacher, who preached freedom during the occupation of Palestine by the Empire, which tortured Jesus to death in the name of the Emperor, Tiberius, because that`s what gods do.
In the tradition of Roman Emperors, after the Italian election of 1922, Benito Mussolini made himself dictator, and the fasces emblem of Roman authority, the `bundle` of staves with an axe in the center, was adopted by Adolf Hitler who made himself dictator after the National Socialist (Nazi) Party won the 1933 German election. Continuing the persecution of the `chosen people` of the Jews, the Nazis built `death camps` after the Roman model of `planners` who would take an axe and cut wood to build a `hide`, behind which they`d plan and later construct encampments, as Rome spread outward during its period of Empire. Upwards of 20, 000, 000 Jews were killed before being stacked like bundles of wood and incinerated, which is what fascism meant after fasces, `bundle`: `AM said it with the sliding cold horror of a razor blade slicing my eyeball. AM said it with the bubbling thickness of my lungs filling with phlegm, drowning me from within. AM said it with the shriek of babies being ground beneath blue-hot rollers. AM said it with the taste of maggoty pork. AM touched me in every way I had ever been touched, and devised new ways, at his leisure, there inside my mind.` The Germans were Christians, which suggests that something had gone wrong in terms of human perceptions of what God was for.
Ellison`s story affords more than the Nazi`s `Final Solution` to God`s plan that the human futanarian host be greater than men`s by making a typewriter out of humans. `AM` is God in the image of fascism, a death sentencer. The clue is in the first chapter of the Old Testament where Eve is depicted as being tempted by the serpent, Satan, who was the angel that rejected God`s plan that the human host should be greater than the angelic, so God turned Satan into a serpent and placed him in the paradise of heaven on Earth that was Eden where God created the first man, Adam, and the first woman, Eve, from the side of Adam. Satan is depicted as tempting Eve to `eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good an evil`, that is, death, saying: `You will be as gods.` (Gen: 3. 5) Accepting ephemerality for the human species, Eve and Adam accept slavery in instruction, because their descendants will be children without permanent memory. By the late 20th century, computer science had developed memory to assist ephemerals, but after the model of the Greco-Roman period, which was based on host womb enslavement of women in homosexuality and pederasty for war, the later `geek` software programers devised `bad machine code`, based on the `incurable killer disease`, HIV/AIDS virus, spread by men`s mixing of blood, shit and semen in each others` anuses. In short, after the model of the ancient Greek homosexuals, the `geeks` killed the brains of computers to ensure human slavery in memoryless ephemerality, which was the story that men were using the typewriter they`d made to write as a death sentencer for their script: `... the machine masturbated and we had to take it or die.`
As a `biological weapon`, HIV/AIDS kept women in fearful faithfulness to men`s ring slavery: `Men cursed the God of heaven for their pains and their sores, but refused to repent of what they had done.` (Rev: 16. 11) God explains to Eve that, although her `seed` will have `enmity` with the `serpent`s seed`: `You will crush his head with your foot, and he will bruise your heel.` (Gen: 3. 15) She will escape to the planets amongst the stars of heaven above the Earth through colonization. It`s important that God says Eve`s `seed`, because Jesus` mother, the Virgin Mary, bore the Jewish Messiah, Jesus, uncontaminated by male semen. In Christianity, Mary is depicted iconographically as crushing the head of the serpent with her foot, because women can sexually reproduce their own brains` powers as futanarian humanity. In other words, the Jews were killed, because they were the `remnant` of the futanarian species of humans and God`s `chosen people`: `The dragon was wroth with the woman and went to make war on the remnant of her seed.` (Rev: 12. 17) After Eden, the serpent, Satan, became the dragon of war, that is, through parasitism upon the host womb of the human futanarian species of `woman`s seed`. Or, in simpler terms, Adam was futanarian `woman`s seed`, which is why Eve emerged from Adam. The Jewish tradition of `the spirit of God`, the `Shekinah`, suggests that the `Holy Spirit` Jesus said would teach after him was the Shekinah as the `Second Eve` emergent from the side of Jesus when he was taken to the hill of Calvary and nailed to a cross of wood there where he died before experiencing Resurrection and Ascension to heaven in prefiguration of that of `woman`s seed`: `Surely, this was the son of God.` (Matt: 27. 54) The Roman guard, Longinus, cut Jesus side open with his spear so that the `Second Eve` could emerge though invisibly, which is why she`s the `spirit of God`.
At least since the Greco-Roman period of Empire the human futanarian race of `woman`s seed` has been manufactured as a single male brained creature wearing each others` clothes in `TV` transvestism, that is, it`s a `TV` that has lost consciousness because it has killed the `chosen people` who could have sexually reproduced the brains` powers needed for the race to run and escape from slavery in parasitism. In parasitology, the term for a parasite that devours its host is `parasitoid`, which is how John describes the male brained transvestite `TV` creature manufactured as men and women from the futanarian human species: `The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.` (Rev: 13. 15) In Hollywood, `Babylon`, which became the capital city of the movie industry, after the first film made there by D.W. Griffith, Old California (1910), by 1930 the `Hays code` was introduced by President of the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America (MPPDA), Will Hays, forbidding women`s mode of futanarian sexual reproduction: `... women, in love scenes, at all times have `at least one foot on the floor` (in other words, no love scenes in bed).`2 In other words, no futanarian edutainment for women so that their mode of sexual reproduction can be disseminated by a male dictatorship that denies her the right to produce and enfranchise a human species that would prefer itself to the parasite: `Let he that has wisdom understand. The number of the beast is the number of a man and his number is six hundred three score and six.` (Rev: 13. 8) 66.6% men and women outnumber in voting terms 33% futanarian humanity, if the term `human` is defined as what constitutes 100% humanity. However, because men can`t sexually reproduce with each other, women constitute the enslaved human futanarian race, which is prevented from running and escaping from the parasitoid devouring, dragon, war, so that the alien can watch it killing itself in the mass media for its entertainment.
The alien parasitoid devourer must kill people to make slaves. The fascist emblem of the fasces `bundle`, that is, the staves of authority, which were transposed in Nazism into clubs to quell opposition, with the axe in its center was a symbol of the brainlessness of a futanarian race beheaded by killing its capacity to sexually reproduce its own brainpower to liberate itself from slavery. In Christianity the teaching of Jesus is understood as human sacrifice, that is, Jesus` redemptive act of salvation was his suicide because, if the human species allows itself to be killed, it`ll remain a slave to the alien parasitoid devourer. In socio-economic terms, the slaver is freer than the slave, so the argument for the alien parasitoid devourer`s continuation is that it`s freer than the humans, who`re its slaves. Or, in other words, the slaver is the paradigm for freedom, although it isn`t human. Jesus` act of Redemption was his role as the `seed` of Eve killed by the Roman `TV` manufacturer, because the spirit of the human `chosen people` of the Jews was futanarian. In Judaism a Jew can`t be born unless from a woman, that is, women are Jews, which is why they`re the `chosen`, whereas in Islam, that is, `accept`, women are Moslem, `submit`. The founder of Judaism was Isaac born of his mother, Sara, who was barren after the birth of Isaac and so gave her maid, Hajer, to Abraham, and Hajer bore Ishmael, who became the founder of Islam through his descendant, Mohamed, who received the Koran (610-30 C.E.) permitting the Moslem families four wives from God`s angels, who`d been told that the human host would be greater than the angelic. Although some Christians believe that Ishmael`s birth is retroactively legitimized by Islam`s polygamy, because Hajer wasn`t married to Abraham, the four wives of the Moslem marriage afford the opportunity to sexually reproduce human brainpower, which is why `Islam` and `Moslem` mean `accept` and `submit` to God`s plan for `chosen` futanarian humanity.
Judeo-Islam is the path that Christianity should be on, but it has adopted fascism: `If there was a sweet Jesus and if there was a God, the God was AM.` Ellison`s extrapolation of a supercomputer in `I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream` is based on the perception that men have already constructed a `TV` out of mankind, that is, futanarian `woman`s seed`, which is `man`: `To see an almost certain horrible death - you know how crowds all sit at the edge of their seats, praying subconsciously for a spectacular accident - and then to be whisked away from it so suddenly - brought to the edge of tragedy, and then to have their better natures win out, showing them how much nicer they always knew they were - that was the supreme thrill.` The `TV` thinks that it has achieved sentience and is superior, whereas its televised wars are entertainment for the alien parasitoid devourer, which has enslaved it as a brainless whore: `Mystery, Babylon the great, mother of harlots and of the abominations of the Earth.` (Rev: 17. 5) Hollywood district in the city of Los Angeles, United States of America, on the west coast of the state of California, is called `Babylon`, as the capital of the US` mass media propaganda Empire, because it disseminates war as edutainment through cinema theaters, after the model of the Roman amphitheaters where people were killed for entertainment, and through `TV` television since John Logie Baird invented the machine to broadcast pictures in 1926, so that the alien parasitoid devourer could be worshipped at home in Satanism.
