Internet - the Beast of Revelation?
Is the Internet a technological and economical monstrosity inaugurating a new era of Babylonian idolatrous profaneness? The Book of Revelation speaks about the beast who will appear at the end of time and whose number is 666. It so happens that the sixth letter of the Hebrew alphabet is "wav", equivalent to the English w. A fact is too, that the ancient Hebrews, lacking digit signs, used the letters as digits where the value of the digit corresponds to the letter's place in the alphabet. Consequently, when John speaks of the beast named 666 he speaks of the beast named www. John explains that "no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name". People shall be forced to worship this beast, says John. To me, it seems like John hits the head of the nail. Today, most companies are forced to accept the obligatory "www" before their names on fa├žades and signboards. The World Wide Web is becoming an idolatrous mantra, a slippery octopus who stretches its tentacles into every corner of modern life. The global Internet economy together with information technology expands according to "new economical laws" - in other words, they are wreaking havoc. The native country of the undersigned, as the most computerized land in the world, is today replacing teachers for computers and automatized learning. Within a few years every citizen will have access to broadband, as the result of a governmental venture, because, as they say, the future lies in the Internet. We are being pressured to worship the beast.
Yeah I chatted with them and they said no.
You're right if I wanted a hundred though...
I'm just going craigslist for an small form optiplex and a cheapo flat screen then remove the ethernet and wifi cards, because I really love making music with kristal and having all the instruments at my disposal
Especially drums. That's hard with a stand alone recorder which I haven't got yet. I would much rather have stand alone battery powered options for everything in my life- which is what led me to the MINI'S.
Anyways I can fuit an optiplex and a small LCD in a large back pack
along with a a little digital recorder for scratch stuff. All solar
charged rechargeable batteries.
Oh yeah, and muy old games that I havent finshed yet (don't laugh)
riven and the rest of those, and the whole tombraider saga.
Also I miss xybots.
