Babylon 2.0


I get the feeling a lot of people still don't quite take Dubai seriously and see it as a weird artifact of a prolonged oil boom that brought shiploads of eff-you money to a bunch of desert sheikhs who never quite figured out what they wanted to do with it all.

I've heard a lot of talk about Dubai (or Dubaibylon, if you prefer) being a tacky LARP of a Sci-Fi city, a monument to Futurist techno-kitsch and plain old bad taste. But it's time for that talk to stop. Nobody's kidding, or fooling around in Dubai. 

What they're doing over there is serious as a heart attack.



What they are doing in Dubai is rolling out all the toys that have been in development for the past 70 years and beta-testing them. What we're seeing in Dubai now is eventually going to be exported all around the world, particularly this pernicious "Smart City" concept.

At select locations, of course.

The future is indeed here, and as William Gibson said it's not evenly distributed yet. And it may never be. 

Neal DeGrasse Tyson looks at Dubai and sees the future, but I look at it and see an autocratic police state built on the backs of slaves (virtual and actual). A burgeoning techno-feudal duchy in which freedom, democracy and privacy will most definitely not be coded into the operating system.

There's also a full calendar of One Worlder conferences in Dubaibylon, something I think everyone needs to think very seriously about. They range from the innocuous to the bizarre, but they generally seem to be very well-funded and attended.


All the usual suspects attend these little get-togethers; the whole range of Davos-Bilderberger-UN-G20 gasbags that jet from forum to conference, planning on how best to reduce the rest of us to penury.


Speak of the Devil; Armand Hammer's pet gasbag was on hand for this most recent convocation of grifters and con-jobbers. And of course, he trotted out his tired-ass "melting highways" canned corn and all the rest of it. 

Probably wouldn't go over too well in the northeast US at the moment so it's fortunate he was in the desert. Unfortunately, he doesn't know any other tunes.


Now that kind of sounds like a threat. Or maybe I'm just being paranoid.



Is that "world peace through plasma energy" or "one race through plasma energy?" The layout's a bit confusing.

All my science peeps out there, can you give us a glimmer of what kind of plasma energy would bring about world peace? 

Or do we not want to know?


Signed with whom, exactly? If you don't mind me asking.


Leaders over whom, exactly? 


OK, so how long before D::Wave sets up a branch office there? Or have they already?


As will Dubai itself. But you always start small at the proof-of-concept stage.


In the real world, "connected" and "tech-enabled" are antonyms for "relaxing."


Which of course is a feature, not a bug.


Like I was saying.



In other words, the Robocops are Ready.



I think it's pretty much a given that data will be used to discriminate. Like that's probably the actual reason DNA is being collected and sequenced. Seen Gattaca recently? 

Yeah, like that.


So in other words, no hard-copy for when your records are inevitably erased. Pissa.


The thing that worries me is that those things look like they could double as euthanasia kiosks. 

Tell me I'm wrong. Please.


Bullies are indeed being watched in Dubai. Of course everyone else is as well, but that makes for a depressing headline, doesn't it?


Yeah, that's the way they roll in Dubaibylon- it's always the Guinness Book or bust. Mind you, they're spending that kind of money because they expect a return. Don't forget that Dubai is one of the largest- if not the largest- air travel hubs in the world. 


Funny, I always thought the Holodeck would look less stupid. Then again, there's that holodeck scene from Star Trek: Generations. 

Nothing could look stupider than that.


"Social media suite." Actually, that kind of sounds like a euthanasia kiosk, too. Or maybe just a place where you pray for one. 

Been on Twitter lately? Then you know exactly what I'm talking about.


Come to think of it, those things look like euthanasia kiosks too, only with propellers. I'd bet good money they'll end up that way for some. 

I'll walk, if it's all the same to you.


"Mind-controlled drones." A double-entendre, presumably. Hopefully.


For whom, precisely? 


And there's where we'll pick the story up when we return to the sunny gulf coast...

    1. Well, as far as I can tell, obviously Gore sucks as a spellcaster. Since half of the Americans still don't believe in climate change, while pretty much everyone in the rest of the planet gets the science. Admittedly, in the rest of the planet big oil and government tend to be separate things, except for Russia and Saudi Arabia... I wonder how come the Russians believe in climate change?

      But yeah, feel free to demonstrate how independent minded you are by voluntarily enslaving your mind to the guys that stabbed the Rockefellers in the back and got their business. I'm sure the overlords appreciate the goodwill gesture. Or not, as the case may be.

    2. Maria, as far as I can tell, no one is questioning whether or not the climate changes over time.
      In the seventies the 'science' considered that we were heading for an ice age, then it was man made global warming (then simply global warming), now the debate is being framed as climate change, exactly which science are we supposed to get? The anthropogenic element has been dropped from the statement, presumably to make it less obvious what is being actually said. So in effect the layman starts to think that "only an idiot would think that the climate doesn't change"!
      The reality is that there has been obvious fraud committed on both sides of the debate. To make matters worse there is now an entire scientific industry around the "belief" that we have clearly discerned where the natural element ends and the human begins. The trouble is, belief is not a matter of science, you either have enough clear information or you don't. In this case we clearly don't have (I have a degree in Earth Sciences so I'm not just talking out of my arse). Therefore, in such a situation, one would be better served to focus on what we can see obviously see happening around us, like rivers reduced to lifeless slurries from pollution. While everyone sits around trying to prove the virtually unprovable, distracted and divided, the river you used to be able to swim in is slowly dying.
      And that, if I can be so bold as to say, is precisely the point in a blog like this. We are not being told the truth. To wonder why the Russians believe in climate change is to miss the point entirely. The PTB will adopt a position that suits them, not us. If it happens to agree with an MSM consensus then all the better.

    4. I agree Zod cosmic forces seem to be the main climate driver at the macro level. However, it is also obvious that terrestrial influences can have major impact long term. It's a bit like a worm in the soil. What the worm eats will influence it's well being, but drive a bulldozer through the earth it's living in and it's in serious trouble.
      I found it rather odd when studying for my degree that only a tiny amount of time was spent on the environment the Earth lives in. I mean, what would be the point in studying a worm without paying serious attention to the soil it lives in? I took it upon myself to take an astronomy paper as part of my degree. It seemed crazy that it wasn't compulsory as part of the degree.
      I found university lecturers to be mostly closed minded, steeped in dogma, over specialised and not very good at thinking out of the box. As corporations have an overwhelming influence on post grad topics, the options once a degree is completed are compromised and blinkered.
      Thanks to you Zod for drawing my attention to the possibility of a secret sun.

  7. Chris,

    "One Planet. One Notion. One Race." sounds a little too much like that chestnut from the 30s, "Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Fuhrer". One of the posters featuring this slogan even has a naked man - shades of old Nazi "health" propaganda - reaching for...something... in a way that sure looks like the Fascist salute.


    >The future is indeed here, and as William Gibson said it's not evenly distributed yet. And it may never be.

    Isn't this our saving grace? Of course, those forgotten backwaters some of us may rush to for comfort will have problems of their own. Guess we'll just have to wing it.

    Policing without police? That was in THX-1138. Domed cities? That was Logan's Run (the euthanasia, too). I've seen this 1970s dystopian movie before, and it always ends in...well, maybe not tears, but a smoking ruin in the background as the befuddled multitudes stumble about, embracing freedom with all the enthusiasm of a five-star hotel guest who has been told the power won't be coming back on.

    Of course, once these sci-fi LARPers tick off Putin, he'll just drop some Polonium in the water supply and wait. Can't have the competition getting the upper hand.

  8. The trouble is, all the world's wealthy* would start to get a bit suspicious if there wasn't strong evidence of an imminent, glorious technocratic future - pandemic confidence in which is reassuring.

    It's also a good place to showcase the state of the art, and inspire ever greater efforts from the bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

    * Those wealthy who've not yet been invited into the upper echelons (the existence of which they haven't been introduced to either).

    Think of Dubai as a 'World Trade Centre' the size of a city. However, it won't be destroyed by man.

    The secrets of the secret sun should persuade you that this is the case.

    That said, it can still serve as an aspirational spur to those who would build New Dubai a little bit later on... after the immanence, and upon the Novus ordo seclorum.

  9. I've decided to post this comment from the year 2022:

    Chris, I think you're a bit paranoid. The One World Government needed a capital after everything fell apart, so Dubai fit the bill perfectly, so sayeth our saviors the Golden Ones and our new A.I. Watchers.

    The Golden Ones have given us FREEDOM! Freedom from all social taboos such as pedophilia and canibalism, so now we're finally FREE to indulge in our deeper appetites (my 11 year-old blonde "thing" and I are going out to that new "Hannibal's" fast food joint this afternoon), the Golden Ones have taught us about the Black Goat of the Woods, and how He/She should be worshipped (Jesus who?), they've even given us frog-fish monsters to intimately protein-bond with when the terrible pain of CRISPR gets to be a little too much even for heroin to relieve (just keep repeating: My flesh is merely an oyster, the black pearl within is all that truly exists, my flesh is merely an oyster, the black pearl within is all that truly exists.).

  12. I can't look at a photo of Dubai & not be reminded of Star Wars...& incidentally, one of the big pieces of subtext from that franchise is that slavery was long a fact of life for the galaxy, esp. on the outer rim (where organized crime was the real govt) while the cynical republic looked the other way, pious Jedi included. Not much of a leap, eh?

    Or maybe our popular long-running science fiction franchises like Star Wars & Star Trek are high comedy to the Annunaki, kind of like how the French elevated Jerry Lewis?

    & why does "One Nation, One Planet, One Race" remind me of "Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Fuhrer"? Maybe the future isn't so much Star Wars as Elysium, from the looks of it all...

    2. Well, op here again, whatever happens in the elemental planes stays in the elemental planes. Don't talk about Djinn club.

      Plasma and energy is naturally very interesting since it is associated with the power of the sun. It shoots off in eruptions and showers our planet, although we are mostly covered by the magnetosphere. (An interaction which has about as much occult/mystical significance as you could hope for. You reada his dark materials maybe?)

      Then, going to real power generation science, other than solar, there is the Tokamak reactor. If you think that nuclear bombs and particle accelerators are letting "wrong" stuff into our reality then boy, oboy, oboy, oboy. The principle of it's operation is the same plasma/magnetism interaction.

There's a crazed bomber on the loose now, and just a hunch, but Id be surprised if it doesn't fit the narrative once you dig into it. If it doesn't, well, sometimes things just happen, but my instinct is usually on point. And I think there is no doubt that the culprit has military training of some sort...

    4. Agreed the narrative should be telling. One possibility is that some people are going all in right now and the bomber will be a virtual caricature of all the PTB wants marginalized. I expect the eventual "suspect" will be at least a Trump supporter (or even more right wing), semi-bigoted or overly religious/nationalist, pro-gun rights, angry at fake news and perhaps also at social media, AI or autonomous vehicles as well.

  25. An empirical observation: My clients and associates from the e-government / e-skills / World Bank crowd used to stop over Dubai maybe once or twice a year, usually en route to Asia. Lately they seem to spend 70% of their time there. Every email reply I get starts with "I'm in Dubai". So things are definitely brewing.

    Within UAE, Dubai is not even that rich. Sleepy next-door Abu Dhabi is the emirate that holds most of the oil assets and controls other lucrative trade in gold, diamonds, pearls etc. Dubai seems to have been a weird experiment from the get-go, e.g. a sex tourism destination for the Saudis.

    Lastly, although this nefariously-futuristic stuff is clearly in evidence, it is also true that in many ways, Dubai never caught up with modernity. The glitzy malls and skyscrapers are largely a mirage. The mentality is still feudal, tribal and insular. A community which 40-50 years ago was nomadic and poor (many people would go through three sets of clothes in their entire lifetime) cannot just leap into a new way of life overnight. They may zip around in Hummers and Ferraris, and carry Louis Vuitton handbags, but the cultural software hasn't changed much. Many Emiratis admit to trekking "back" to the desert once in a while to get a night's sleep under the stars; their air-conditioned marble villas (where every child must have its own Ethiopian maid) are choking the life out of them.

    As a result, things in the day to day are chaotic; e.g. customer service as provided by banks, airlines and telecoms is shockingly inadequate. A rental lease agreement on an apartment will be half a page long; in Arabic only; saying "give me 12 months' rent upfront, in cash, then sod off". Local Arabs (who are actually descended from Iranians and Indians) don't bother waiting in line or waiting their turn. It's all about throwing money at things; but no one has bothered connecting the dots.

    It should be interesting to see how this city where a simple transaction like paying a phone bill can be a major headache goes about applying AI to everything.

    1. P.S. I remember years ago when UAE decreed that all foreigners must apply for a national ID card. I'd go to the immigration office, wait all day, then go home empty-handed. Every time. Months later, I left UAE for good; still ID-free.

      I also remember a Swedish co-worker going to a top hospital for some tests one morning. When he called up the hospital in the afternoon as instructed, he was told there was no record of him ever having set foot there, let alone having had tests done.

      Hence I have to smile to myself when reading about how these same organizations are now about to map out 3 million people's genome. I'm guessing they will do this using their warehoused population of underpaid, abused and utterly demotivated workers from Sudan and the Philippines. In which case, the best of luck to them.

      So your response is no exaggeration by any stretch of the imagination.

    3. Yes, the best glimpses into what Dubai is about can be gleaned from news stories about the 2008-2009 financial crisis. Foreign professionals thrown into medieval "debtors' jail" over miniscule credit card debt. Etc. etc.

      The same stories also paint a damning picture of western hypocrisy: Only when things went belly up did the hundreds of thousands of Brit, European and US expats make a convenient uproar about what a cruel, lawless and oppressive place Dubai was. I guess they had never noticed before, too busy as they were making their tax-free fortunes, flipping properties and reinventing themselves from timid secretaries (back in UK) to global PR gurus (Dubai).

  27. Good stuff as usual, Chris. I left FB today on a whim, not knowing consciously it was trending. Will steadily follow you here, as the mediocrity and time suck ("friends", data driven ads and so on) on FB has driven me back to pre 2011 era needs and wants. Until folks move over to another less vacuous social platform... much love and (personal, not ubermensch police state) Peace!

Mark Zuckerberg is a proven sociopath liar.The guy can't even dress himself (Mk brain damage?) and he has a small army of handlers that really run the show.He is an agency puppet,one who actually believes his Mk program ie he thinks he is a genius who invented Facebook.The Social Network is pure CIA clap trap / Hollywood fantasy for brainwashed Gen Y. The American Sheople bit right into the fb feces filled apple and swallowed the Orwellian Silicon Valley corporate-fascist millennial culture of subhumanism.

    1. One can only speculate that, as institutions of London are built atop ancient temples to Mithras et al, that beneath that Logan's Run dome of theirs is some pre-Islamic lost city or temple dedicated to a Lovecraftian horror. I wish I were joking.

    1. Which explains why our homegrown all-American celebs like Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian are in Dubai every other week. After Kim stuffed her derriere with cement or whatever and posted her bare-ass pics all over the internet, she had to abruptly pull out from a reality TV shoot in India. You see, a Dubai gentleman offered her pimp oops manager Kris Jenner a few hundred thousand dollars for a date with Kim. Taking it up the poop shoot must be her real talent.

  31. StarV(e)r seems appropriately named...note that androgyne thing on the on mind/nation/neclk/people thing. Possibly a bit of an Atlas ref -only this soyboygirl is holding the earth up with ease cause we better. Dubai - proof of concept city for transinhumanism and tech driven Minority Report. Selling point: "The city of the future makes grifting and conning the people easier than ever!"

  32. Have you read any of Miguel Conner's (Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio) fiction books Stargazer or Heretic? This is all starting to look eerily similar. These are indeed gnostic times...

  33. Superb article Chris and scarier than the darkest and deepest circle of hell!
    I will only add that here in AZ we had an "autonomous" car kill a bicyclist yesterday in Tempe! Apparently there was a needless human appendage in the car (which makes it all the worse to me!)but said needless appendage wasn't 'at the wheel -so to speak!

  34. Unrelated to this post (well, except it relates to the society dumpster fire), nickelodeon went off air for 17 minutes minutes to support the walkout over gun control during programming for its youngest viewers. 17 mins for the 17 victims. 17.
