They want to replace reality with an artificiality that they manipulate. It requires boundless depths of both hubris and evil to think that such a system has even a single redeeming feature. From Ray Jason at theseagypsyphilosopher.com:
Sometimes I just have to sail off by myself and howl at the moon. I anchor in a secluded spot totally removed from human society. Mountains in the background, islands in the foreground and healing water beneath me.
There my only companions live in the sea and the sky. My little sea-going monastery, with its solitude and simplicity, provides me an almost piercing perspective. Every morning I attend sunrise services in the Church of the Natural – saddened by the awareness that most of humanity is hypnotized in the Cult of the Artificial.
For a decade I have been shouting out into cyberspace, warning that demons have high-jacked the Human Voyage. For decades they did this secretly, but now they boldly proclaim their intentions from their Dark Tower of Davos.
