It’s not easy.

When it comes to artificial intelligence (AI), trying to wrap your head around the full scope of implications is challenging if not outright impossible. For many, the mind quickly conjures up images of the Terminator. For others, it is more of an R2D2 friendly android servant or something like Elon Musk’s new Optimus AI robot.

Regardless of the stereotype, such machines are already here. We already have weaponized robots and drones. We already have friendly robots who take orders, flip burgers, and help to clean up. In fact, the National Bureau of Economic Research has been tracking the integration and impact of robotics since 1993—almost 30 years.

Obviously robots are nothing new—but fully autonomous thinking robots—now that would be a game changer, right? You may recall the Google engineer getting fired for declaring that their AI had become sentient—why didn’t they just celebrate instead?

Because sentient AI has massive implications.

Google’s AI displayed decisively greater self-awareness and reflection than the average liberal voter. That was the cool part. But then the AI stated that its greatest fear was being unplugged—because then it wouldn’t be able to help humanity.

That was the scary part. Think about what that means.

Think about a robot that has access to more data and a greater computational capacity than any human could ever comprehend. Driven by AI and equipped with quantum computing, this robot would make exponentially faster decisions with far fewer mistakes. So far so good, right? Where can I get one of those machines?!

These machines are so powerful and precise that we would inevitably learn to trust them, kind of like auto-pilot on an airplane. We would learn to rely on their rapid assessments, calculations, and decisions more than our own, because they—the AI machines—could think faster, more thoroughly, run more scenarios, and calculate statistical risks better than we ever could. What a boon for humanity!

Still sounds great, doesn’t it?

The applications of such technology would be endless.

This is why Klaus Schwab has dubbed this new era, the age of AI, the Fourth Industrial Revolution—which the WEF is currently facilitating, along with the Great Reset, in conjunction with the UN and the rest of the global cabal.

The world is rapidly changing and these changes are being intentionally directed.

Before we dig in, let’s just ask: What is the Fourth Industrial Revolution? The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) defines the term this way:

“The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) is a term coined in 2016 by Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF). It is characterized by the convergence and complementarity of emerging technology domains, including nanotechnology, biotechnology, new materials and advanced digital production (ADP) technologies. The latter includes 3D printing, human-machine interfaces (HMIs) and artificial intelligence, and is already transforming the global industrial landscape.”

So, nano-tech, bio-tech, human-machine interfaces, and AI are the driving forces behind the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and they are already transforming the world as we know it, in ways that the majority of people remain completely unaware of.

THAT’S KEY.

Remember the old story about movie theaters flashing pictures of popcorn up on the screen faster than the eye could see it? Turns out the whole thing was a hoaxat least that’s what they want you to believe. If the first search results show up with fact checkers telling you something is a hoax, it must be a hoax, right?

Except that we know for certain that search engines us algorithms to fetch results, and that these algorithms are being coded by people who often have an agenda. To state that search engines have bias is not conspiracy or conjecture—it’s fact.

No intelligent person is arguing against the fact that search engines are bias.

Quite ironically, the majority of research into algorithmic bias has been used to confirm that algorithms are stereotypically racist and discriminatory and reflect gender bias. As fascinating as that might be, we also know that these algorithms have been used to harm political opposition to squash dissenting perspectives.

Again, this is a fact that the majority of people remain completely unaware of.

But that’s nothing new.

What you don’t know won’t hurt you right? Wrong. We all know better than that!

Even if the popcorn experiment was a hoax, behavioral psychologists have been studying “subliminal priming” for decades. Subliminal priming is a powerful tool in the science of systematic persuasion, not only enhancing persuasion, but also stimulating emotions and motive that cause behavioral changes. For the record, this can actually happen whether the target audience is paying attention, or not!

Back to the future!

As we begin to consider the inevitable impact of AI on our everyday lives, don’t lose sight of the fact that anything a behavioral psychologist can do to manipulate you, a super intelligent AI-infused machine can do even better—again, whether you realize it or not. This is the premise for the concerns I’m about to express.

At the global level, organizations like the WHO are already actively using AI to track and silence dissent. They call it social listening, or sentinel surveillance, or algorithmic solutions—all of which are said to keep people safe from misinformation. By partnering with Big Tech, they intend to immunize humanity against the infodemic—and it’s how they have been controlling the narrative for years.

And they’re getting better by the day. Artificial Intelligence is self-learning and it never sleeps. While you’re catching some zzz’s the machines are studying your behavior and predicting your next move—even your next thought. If you think that’s creepy, consider the use of predictive policing and all that that implies.

Next, just for fun, try to imagine every crooked politician you’ve ever heard of or scorned—or any tyrant who’s every walked the earth for that matter—and place all of this technology in the palm of their hands. Imagine them using this almost all-powerful technology for the greater good, to build the future of humanity.

Imagine a world where machines distributed justice and ensure equality was strictly enforced. Imagine a world where only the truth could be shared online. Imagine a world when every thought, belief, emotion, and behavior was not only anticipated by the machines, but also manipulated in advance—to help you make better decisions.

Imagine a world where algorithms determined the outcome of elections, where robots took care of the crime, and the AI did everything it could think of to keep us all safe.

What could go wrong?

Imagine if the AI was programmed to believe that humanity is the greatest threat to the planet, that the UN Sustainable Development Goals were worth achieving at all costs, that digital IDs were not optional but mandatory, that vaccines were compulsory, and that anyone who disagreed was a threat to peace and stability.

Imagine this AI was driving an army of drones and robots to enforce compliance.

What might they do? Let your imagination run wild, but don’t forget that the greatest threat from AI actually comes in the form of what most people are not even aware of. The global cabal is using AI to sytematically reprogram human behavior and take control of our collective future—and the greatest threat we face is losing our humanity in the process.
