The following my fellow human beings is the statement that will eco in the annals of the human history for millennia to come. That statement is not only the defining feature of the digital realm and the truth battle that is taking place within it, it is the ultimate shape of all the future battles. The future battles that could, and if we continue with this level of ignorance, will emerge with the rise and expansion of the digital realm. The digital realm’s ability to be absorbed by arts, sciences and technologies, precisely because of its fluid evolution, is what is going to make all those other things dangerous. The threat is that the evolution of the digital realm will enable all areas of arts and sciences and all areas of human life to be observed, controlled and therefore predicted in order to benefit the creators of such technologies. People still talk about computers and chips and implants and digital devices. There will be no chips and implants. Everything is absorbing the digital technologies and it is being absorbed by digital technologies. Future children will not be able to tell the difference between hardware and software, between computers and non computers. Computers will be based on bio chem circuits and neural networks. Everything will contain digital components. It will not be necessary to think of computer chips, software, hardware. It will not be possible for future children to tell the difference between computer and non computer because computers will run almost everything.  The digital and non digital the physical and non physical, that is HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE are constantly merging to together to form a new construct of reality that is beyond our ability to observe objectively for we are constructing it. Yet we must attempt to grasp the key moments of our lives that are forming the foundations of the new construct that is constantly redesigning our lives (thus making it impossible for us to observe it). We must attempt to see the paradox if we want to be able to decide how the digital transforms everything or how everything absorbs the digital realm. Our very daily reality is being shaped by, via and through this digital medium. Washing machines, cars, trucks, elevators, watches, even shoes and jackets can be equipped with software. Forget science fiction movies. People will not be walking around with chips and implants. They will be equipped with neuro organic and bio chem organic circuitry. We are already building silicon and bio based chips. The following statement then rightfully sees the modern DIGITAL story telling as one of the final frontiers of the ideological and physical battle.

 

 “Feature films are the most powerful and insidious shapers of public perception, because they fly under the radar of conscious exclusion.

 

 This film is going to bury good people doing good work, at exactly the time that the state is coming down on their heads.

 

 It is going to smother the truthful version of events, at a time when the truth is most in demand.

 

 As justification it will claim to be fiction, but it is not fiction. It is distorted truth about living people doing battle with titanic opponents. It is a work of political opportunism, influence, revenge and, above all, cowardice.

 

 It seeks to ride on the back of our work, our reputation and our struggles.”

Julian Assange
