Re: /8BBEEARR

Okay, so I think we're on to something with the dates. It appears as if we have to pin down the last number of the above years and then describe what happened.

Not sure exactly how to track/twist/trap/test, though.

Also, we appear to have to write our own future. Maybe we should scour the THEY forum for that...

Re: /8BBEEARR

based on the numbers we have (there is no pattern that I see between them) and how few numbers we got for solving this other puzzle (1 in comparison to the vast list of numbers we need), I would say you're right.  Let's start choosing numbers and filling this out.

WORD.

2008: Cyprus and Malta adopt the Euro, Oil prices excede $100 USD for the first time: the stock market crashes. The Lehman Brothers file for bankruptcy.  NASA probes space and finds emergence in the form of the youngest supernova remnant. In order to reverse our time debt, another leap second was added to our days.

Friday May 17, 1901 - "Panic of 1901" -  Among other causes, was the rumor that JP Morgan's broker had died. He had to come to the floor to assure the market the firm was still operating.

Asherah, that's awesome!

Just for funzies....

2042: Despite major climate change at the poles and inconstant weather patterns, MetaCorp colonizes what was the last frontier - Antarctica. On April 1st 2048 the Antarctic stock eXchange opens for business. Oil sits at over 1 billion USD a barrel. The first fully autonomous AI is launched in prototype by IBMetaCorp.

2107: MetaCorp invests in space exploration and quickly colonises the Earth's Moon, Mars and nearby Jupiter in a matter of years. They develop a gigantic  monopoly, developing space shuttles and providing the expensive fuel necessary to travel through space.

Re: /8BBEEARR

2055: Due to decades of excessive oil usage, oil becomes scarce. MetaCorp and the world's plutocracies form a merger, and in doing so switch from the gold to the oil standard. The infrastructure of AmeriCorp, formerly the United States, already in a state of decay, goes into disuse as gasoline becomes a commodity unavailable for purchase.

2061: MetaCorp passes the No Car Act, making it impossible to purchase, make, or sell cars in AmeriCorp and UnitedKorp (formerly the UK). AmeriCorp's taxpayer's money is funneled toward an improvement of the reticular infrastructure of the country. People, though stuck at home, are interconnected through reticular streams. The 2060's also signals the birth of a countercultural movement devoted to finding underground "ret-free" spaces in which to socialize. These ret-free youth are determined to rail against "the machine," begging for more humanistic practices in the social and business realms of life under MetaCorp.

Re: /8BBEEARR

2110's: MetaCorp begins to pay qualified employees to move to Mars and start families. These children are dubbed the "Big Banger" generation. Mars, though largely a corporation centered on providing customers with pastoral experiences of "the last frontier," is also home to a community of economic separatists. The economic separatists, also known as the NoEcon's, live on a compound "off the grid" (to borrow a retro phrase). They are a secluded and tight knit community of intellectuals. Members of the commune place highly educated in post-structuralism, post-modernism, and queer theory. They establish the first print library on Mars. They begin to develop radical-left theories on how to live without "incorporation."

2121: Climate change causes widespread famine and disease on Earth. Millions of people die. All that can get out, get out, to retreat to Mars.  MetaGoogle begins to move its servers to the pristine climes of the Moon, in hopes of avoiding reticular damaged incurred by rebellion and chaos.

2073: With the ret-free movement in full swing, MetaCorp launches a full scale assault on the counterculture's bases of operation. Militarized nanobots infiltrate ret-free zones, surveilling and randomly electrocuting members of the population. The movement splits into pacifists intending to flee to new, safer areas and a more radical sect pursuing direct resistance.

2081: The pacifist ret-freers are all but crushed into oblivion. Meanwhile, the militarized RETLIB rebels are scattered and severely weakened. Resigned to defeat, the head of RETLIB sells out to MetaCorp, going on to become the dean of their MetaStrat military school. Her seconds in command disappear, and the resistance dissolves.

2136: The NoEcons are discovered by MetaCorp, who realize that they are in no way a threat. The corporate entity stretches across space-time like an infinitely headed hydra, inventing real, imaginary, and complex financial instruments to create productivity without production. The ecstasy of eXchange is the only order of intersubjectivity.

2148: Seeking escape from the MetaCorp hydra, the NoEcons retreat back to the decimated Earth - the only place left to live an authentic life. The NoEcons struggle with the natives that had stayed behind after the initial Earth Flight. Minor riots ensue.

2092: MetaCorp has colonised the entire planet formerly known as Earth, spreading into every country known on earth including AmeriCorp, UnitedKorp and multiple oceans through their subsidiary OceanicCorp. Then MetaCorp turned its sights onto colonising the universe and any alien life forms they were able to find.
