The future doesn’t need us, reason and life submit to the ferocity of financial mathematics, algorithms and technology. What awaits us is a techno-medieval version where all stored knowledge will be reduced to premium access or simply disappear leaving the cloud in ruins for us. The Internet is destined to collapse but its legacy will become an aestheticized version for contemplation, a full-blown ruinenwert. Humans will be reduced, rather than to relics, to techno-rubble. It will cost us a lot not to end up as the Anthropocene’s debris, but we can still resist.
