This is a very cool futuristic video that also feels ‘freaky’. (I never thought I would have the opportunity to use the word ‘freaky’ on this blog. This outstanding film episode from the standpoint of its creative inception and production reminds me of Daniel 12:4 where Daniel is told that at the time of the end, knowledge will increase. And so will man’s pursuit of earthly pleasures. This video purports to show how in the not too distant future we will be able to live in a ‘glocolised’ world where everything and everyone can be simulated. The social implications are enormous.
The more technology advances, the more, we the human beings created by God for fellowship with Him and each other, withdraw into our private world trying to simulate and create our own pleasures.
GOLDEN AGE – SOMEWHERE (from VIMEO)by Paul Nicholls Sequel to the award winning GOLDEN AGE – THE SIMULATION, ‘SOMEWHERE’ attempts to visualise the notion of a ‘downloaded architecture’. We are in a time where much of what we do is online. The notion of the online will radically change, the notion of the computer and the home will merge. We will download parks and places to relax, have skype phone calls with simulated telepresence of our friends and family, be immersed in nanorobotic replications of any kind of objects or furnishings downloaded on credit based systems. The local becomes the global and the global becomes the local. Consumer based capitalism would change forever. A truly ‘glocolised’ world.
