Serial Experiments Lain was right. The future doesn’t look like “the cyberpunk” with appliances on his back – hell, the future isn’t even male. The future is another world that’s merged into ours, from which emerges as its benefactor the female consciousness, with splintered aspects that are disparate and geographically isolated, and yet simultaneous, omnipresent, living in different “locations” online at the same time with other, different versions of the self. If our lives are told through navigating the annotations of a whole array of metanarratives in broader contest, our stories, too, must be annotations – through a networked set of windows, emails, browsers, applications, your PDF viewer, whatever. It all contributes to the story because the story is every interaction you have on a computer. The story isn’t framed or full screen – it’s inherently the entire computer and the way you use it

The story goes like this: Earth is captured by a technocapital singularity as renaissance rationalitization and oceanic navigation lock into commoditization take-off. Logistically accelerating techno-economic interactivity crumbles social order in auto-sophisticating machine runaway. As markets learn to manufacture intelligence, politics modernizes, upgrades paranoia, and tries to get a grip.

"Land himself describes accelerationism in the abstract as “positive oriented cybernetics” – that is, cybernetics in its actual definition, “the scientific study of how humans, animals and machines control and communicate with each other"
