Just saw a billboard that I thought read “Bot Jesus. Miracles can happen.” I think it actually said “Got Jesus?” when I look closer, but no matter.
I am thinking “Nanobot Jesus” is way more intriguing prospect. Nanobots introduced into your body to alter the appropriate nerve receptors to help you better accept a particular belief system. In this case Jesus. Bot Jesus?
But belief systems are not just religious but political, social, cultural, etc. They are everywhere.
So these aren’t just Jesus bots or religious bots. These are thought bots.
If Jesus bots make you nervous, they should. But thoughts bots are useful. But bots cost money. Who has money? Large corporations, governments, political machines, religions. That makes me nervous.
The Bot Thought War is on. The war to control your thoughts. Bots introduced in the soda you just drank. In the government water supply. In the air in the mall. In your school. Everywhere. Anywhere.
What are they all controlling? Your political beliefs, your consumer thoughts, your religious beliefs, anything you might think.
But if there are thought bots, then inevitably there will be aggressive bots designed to take out competing bots. Then other bots will need to protect themselves. So armies of bots waging war. Alliances will form, easy and uneasy. Mutations and chaos.
All raging inside you. Your thoughts will spiral and spurt and sputter. We will all go mad.
So we will develop Botidotes to kill all the other bots. But like viruses they will come back stronger.
We can only hope our brains evolve fast enough to make the chaos seem normal.
