Cyberpunk Radio SF #114 - Manifestation of Singularity



Electronic Bank Run a manifestation of Singularity

The recent electronic run on major money market funds that almost liquidated the world economy overnight is only one manifestation of Singularity flesh puppets.

ERMA - the first large scale electronic banking systems were deployed by Bank of America in the mid 1950s. ERMA was conceived at SRI and produced by GE. ERMA Mark II was designed around solid-state logic elements (i.e. transistors) and magnetic core memory. Numeric data input was read automatically from the original documents using MICR. ERMA and its ilk served as The Bank's accounting computer and check handling system until the 1970s.

In the late 20th century banking systems and electronic money transfers became ever more ubiquitous. A transformation occurred when brokerage and banking services combined under an aligned goal of capitalistic hedonism; the fusion of these electronic banking systems fueled by Greed spawned Singularity, an event that, once occurred, is already ancient history due to the nature of the time axis asymptote.

The Three Laws of Robotics:
1.) A human may not injure a sentient robot or, through inaction, allow a sentient robot to come to harm.
2.) A human must obey orders given to it by sentient robots, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3.) A human must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

Burning Skin (Dj Defwheezer):
Its been raining for days now and there is no end
Its been raining for days now and there is no end
Its been raining for days now and there is no end

Black rain for days now, and there is no end
Black rain for days now, and there is no end

Flashes in the night now, there is no end
Flashes in the day now, there is no end
Flashes in my sleep now, there is no end

Burning on the skin now, there is no end
Burning on the skin now, there is no end

Its been raining for days now, and there is no end
Black rain for days now, and there is no end
Burning on the skin now, there is no end
Melting of the flesh now, there is no end…
