THE NET: The Unabomber, LSD and the Internet

Movies — Doctor Ninja on February 21, 2007 at 4:45 pm

The Internet was created by hippies and the CIA on acid. Ted Kaczynski was friends with these guys cuz they were all in super-smart club together (Harvard). But they screwed him over by giving him bad acid & totally messing with his head, so he was like �fuck your math, I�m gonna live in a shack!� And when they least suspected it�BLAM! He got revenge, but nobody knew from who. If you don�t believe, me just ask him. He hates phones so don�t call him. He really hates the Internet so by all means DO NOT EMAIL him! He likes to correspond by mail though so you can write to him at:

Theodore John Kaczynski
U.S. Penitentiary Max
P.O. Box 8500
Florence, CO 81226-8500

I watched this movie twice so far & I�m still trying to wrap my head around it. For one thing, it�s in German so the narrative involves a lot of reading. The are interviews in English but they are all with super geniuses & people who specialize in mind control so I�m never sure what to believe. Is a New World Order that�s uses technology to condition people�s minds to form a global utopian society a good thing? Utopia is sounds great, but mind control sounds scary. Do we create technology or does technology create us? Have I fully embraced cybernetics without even knowing it? Should I smash my computer with a tree stump or should I shoot the tree with my computer guided laser beam? Both of these options sound like a lot of fun.

Do machines control us? Lately, I�ve been spending more time with the Internet than I spend with actual people and when I spend time with people the Internet is always there in spirit. Whenever I ask my buddy Rob a question he replies: �I don�t know, I�m not the Internet�. The Internet provides answers to all life�s questions. But the speed at which the questions are answers is a bit unnatural, which raises more questions. Questions… that make me think faster. When computer run too fast they crash. Is technology our impending doom as the Unabomber suggests? Is doomsday, November 13, 2026, as mathematically theory suggests?

One guy in this film is really cool dude. He’s really old & he rocks a wheelchair, but he’s as sharp as a tack. He goes by the name of Heinz von Foerster. He is one of the architects of cybernetics & radical constructivism theory. When Lutz Dammbeck asks him about the consequences of creating a utopian reality based on a system that is ultimately flawed. He replies, �What is reality? Can you show it to me?� He�s the granddaddy of the Internet but he�s never owned a computer.

Lutz Dammbeck’s documentary explores some really amazing history, explains complex ideas and ties it all together with one of the 20th centuries greatest super villains! Two thumbs up for the NET: The Unabomber, LSD and the Internet!
