The Pokemon Pied Piper Zombie Apocalypse Has Begun
As this is happening, the video from selected players’ cameras is being streamed to the CIA in real time, along with precise GPS coordinates of the players’ locations. The more people the CIA wants to converge onto an area of interest, the higher the monster value they place at that location. As these photos show, when high-value monsters appear in such locations, hoards of Pokemon players rush to the scene via bicycles, taxis, automobiles and even on foot… all pointing their cameras at the high-value target and upstreaming real-time video to the CIA.
The next step of the game, however, will transition the augmented reality to Google Glass-like eye pieces that are worn over the eyes. These transparent visors will overlay monsters onto the apparent image of the real world as seen by players, eliminating their need to stare at mobile devices. Instead, you’ll just see these people mindlessly running around like crazed crack heads, seemingly desperate to reach something that actually doesn’t exist.
And the final future step will be augmented reality contact lenses where full motion HD graphics are displayed on the inside of contact lenses to create the augmented reality illusion that Pokemon monsters really are walking around the real world. At this point, Pokemon players’ disconnect from reality will be complete, and they will exist at the whim of the game maters (i.e. Dungeon Masters) who decide what images, people, vehicles and events to drop into the virtual worlds that these people see as the real world.
As you might have guessed, this is not just a massive spying machine, but a totalitarian mind control system that will eventually have the power to assert absolute control over everything a person sees, hears and experiences. Augmented display contact lenses, when combined with head-worn cameras and ear pieces, can actively censor “unapproved” images or text messages (i.e. anything the government doesn’t want you to know) by literally redacting text you’re not supposed to read, overlaying government-approved advertising and social control messages onto the walls of buildings, roads or even the sky in the real world, placing virtual floating “WANTED” messages over the heads of individuals identified by the government as being “dangerous,” and so on. The possibilities of absolute mind control are limitless.
If such technology comes into existence, it would spell the total doom of human liberty and the nearly unstoppable dominance of the technocratic elite.
One answer to all this is, of course, small-scale EMP weapons that fry all electronics in the local area, returning people to reality by destroying the circuits that maintain their virtual worlds (mental prisons) which are controlled by the dominant technotarians. This is why I have long understood that the fate of human freedom may one day depend on small bands of rebels carrying out activities that could include:
* Setting off small-scale, portable EMP weapons to disable technological control systems run by oppressive, dictatorial regimes all over the world. (North Korea, anyone?)
* Conducting armed raids on AI robots to destroy and disable them. (See my related article How to Kill a Google Robot.)
* Hacking into and taking over remote controlled vehicles or robots to commandeer them for the public good.
* Seizing control of augmented reality systems to overlay messages of truth that appear in the virtual worlds.
If things don’t change, the future of human beings may look eerily similar to real zombies. What if all the people who think they are “looking for monsters” become monsters themselves?
