Escape. Instructions are unavoidable. As a way of conveying the best example of a given action, they can be extremely important to ensure occupational safety, proper behaviour in everyday life, mastery of technology and so on. But at the same time, we are entering – and in truth are already living – in the era of deepfakes, cyber-attacks, phishing and persistent spam. In addition to “rubbish” fake news, we consume a double-edged product, tiptoeing the line of “useful” and “useless” in the form of new technologies, the result of which is unpredictable, like blockchain or artificial intelligence.
Separating truth from lies, half-truths and half-lies, a scientific hypothesis from the cosmological narrative, reality from the matrix, clarity from dreams, is becoming more and more complicated, more and more costly. The resources of time and space are tapering and depleting. But information technologies are developing – there are a lot of answers, too many, even. In this environment of an abundance of answers, can we now formulate a question? In the midst of a crisis in the mass media and the usurpation of information by small groups, the instructions simply stop working, because there are too many of them and they have too many directions, including directions that stand diametrically opposed. We have an innumerable amount of information about the causes and consequences of various phenomena, ranging from domestic, criminal, political, to the scale of a planetary crisis and catastrophe, causing the instructions multiply and also contradict each other. Monopolists of information and their information spreaders rely on a civilizational technological restriction. We see that the monopolists are not interested in clarifying the situation. We, ordinary consumers, receive an endless stream of instructions, which leads us to the verge of a crisis and the ontological loss of direction... Complete disorientation. Perhaps it is the totality of such disorientation that becomes the real starting point in a world of new hopes... АЦ © 20210527
