One of my top 5 movies ever is Cloud Atlas. If you didn't hear about it, or, worse, if you did hear about it, but didn't watch it, please correct that mistake ASAP. Thank me later.
For now, let's assume you didn't see it. Here's the TLDR: based on a novel with the same name, Cloud Atlas, starring Tom Hanks and Hale Berry among others, is a Sci-Fi in 6 parts. The whole thing is 3 hours long, and in each of the 6th parts you recognize characters as the timeline advances and, allegedly, the characters reincarnate in different eras. Worth mentioning that the script was written by the Wachovski sisters (Lana and Lilly) which you may know since they were brothers (before changing their sex, that is) as the Matrix creators.
The 6th, and the last, part is the most unrecognizable and surprising. By that time, humanity evolved in two main directions. On one side, there was what you may call an involution, with people living in agricultural communities, threatened constantly by wars and cannibalism. And on the other, a very evolved, peaceful and advanced civilization, both coexisting on the same planet.
The differences between these two branches are striking. And that's also the things that fascinates me the most.
Widening The Gap
I think we are on the verge of a similar process.
On one side, we see how AI, via social media, succeeded in creating a huge global community of frightened people. This community is desperately asking for protection (against an invisible enemy, but they don't know that) and they are vastly polarized against the other part. Although they live in traditionally "civilized" countries, like Australia, Canada or France, they are merely consumers, prisoners of comfort. They are under constant pressure from media to maintain their fearful state and reject any attempt to challenge the status quo. In this process, they are ready to give up all their freedoms.
This community reminds me a lot of the agricultural, superstitious and cannibalistic part in Cloud Atlas. It's true, right now they are still advanced, in general terms, but it's just a question of decades until this polarization will eventually lead to a technological involution as well.
And on the other side, you find people who didn't have their brains washed just yet. People who are still able to question everything around, to admit when they're making mistakes, to learn, to adapt, to move forward. They're also into space travel and all sorts of innovations that are considered, most of the time, blasphemy by the first lot. A very big part of this community overlaps with the crypto community, if only for the constant ability to challenge the authority status quo.
This group reminds me of the second one from Cloud Atlas. The one that was still able to use advanced technology and live a balanced life.
We're still very early in the widening process. But it has started.
What we have seen in the conspiracy theories streams, related to "the big reset" is in fact a big gap. One that is constantly growing, fueled by manipulation, greed and fear.
And that leaves us only one question: which side are you?
Afraid, crying for protection against an invisible enemy, or aware, ready to learn and adjust?
It may seem you have plenty of time to answer this question. After all, humanity is pretty leveled right now, there aren't differences as big as the ones depicted in the movie. But the last two years showed us how quickly the world can turn upside down.
So try to find the answer faster, we're kinda running out of time.
And, if you can, try doing something to stop the process. It doesn't end well.
