A Quarter Century Of Symbiotic Bonding
The internet has been ingesting the world's information in increasing quantities over the last 25 years. It has now symbiotically bonded to the physical, non-digital systems of civilization, which regress from the trauma: the splintering of consensus reality, the rise of radicalization, and an explosion of Truths.
The economic incentives of feeding it this information, and the permissionless innovation it enables appear to seed what could be termed "internet-native" models for economic activity, incentivization, coordination and the archetypal human.
The internet is our species' first planetary-scale infrastructure. It might also be the catalyst for a shift to a planetary-scale civilization.
