October 2010

Sometimes we come across an explanation so powerful that no other disciplinary studies - science, philosophy, psychology, religion, etc. - could give a satisfactory answer to the meaning of life for humanity. Here's a simple short story that reminds us that each and every one of us is part of the development of humanity. What we do unto others is what we do unto ourselves. Peace and prosperity will finally come when humanity becomes mature.

"You were on your way home when you died.

It was a car accident. Nothing particularly remarkable, but fatal nonetheless. You left behind a wife and two children. It was a painless death. The EMTs tried their best to save you, but to no avail. Your body was so utterly shattered you were better off, trust me.

And that's when you met me."

BUT, serious questions on privacy should be raised here:

Why Google, an Internet search engine, invented this driverless car in the first place? If not for spying on other cars, pedestrians, houses, streets, etc.?

This is what they tell us: ”The Google cars use computer A.I., cameras, lasers, and GPS devices to figure out where to go, how fast to go, and where other cars are. Remove the human element, and replace it with a computer that can process road conditions, speed, other cars, and a million other bits of information…"

It's the "million other bits of information" that is truly troubling.

Worse still, Google has now made a pact with the CIA. "The CIA says the Google Cars will drive down American streets - unmanned - and gather data on the nefarious activity of all citizens. This data will be cross-referenced with the search data that Google is also collecting – if need be."

After all, we already have Google Map from satellite spying, so why not a closer view for spying with a Google Driverless Car?

Forget about your privacy whenever you go outside and be careful what you say in the open! Of course, be extremely cautious and alert, the U.S. death squad (CIA) is just lurking around the corner, eavesdropping and watching from one of those Google Driverless Cars!
