What if the cloud is basically all the heaven we would get. Consciousness uploaded, no suffering, no sickness, “live” for eternity. A “paradise” for posthumans.
Also, apparently, you can’t screengrab Netflix. Not complaining but pretty sure I was able to do that before.
Ken MacLeod - The Corporation Wars.
Ken is a funny guy, and humor is well needed in this dark and weird far future economic nightmare tale where all humans are dead. Their bodies, at least. Wars and schisms between accidentally sentient robots, accelerationists, reactionaries, and good old fashioned capitalist corporations (ran by AIs) unfold, and it's all a jolly good weird time.
What makes us human? Can corporations be people in a more literal and less stupid sense than the phrase from our currently broken American political discourse? Even more strange than that sounds... I don't want to spoil it. For fans of Banks and PKD who want some laffs along the way. #posthuman#scifi#book#trilogy#deusexmachina
