Thoughts on Æthereum and Financial Cryptography

Ahh, the golden future. Binary shouts of “up!” and “down!” on the exchanges, exuberant prostrating at the shrine of the banks and their news-worthy approvals of cryptocurrency—all the while simultaneously pretending to code over their greed and selfishness. In the Poloniex trade box are calls for new BMWs alongside the light-hearted heralding of SkyNet. Real refugees are struggling for food, clothing, and shelter around the world and we have the audacity to discuss the new influx of ‘bitcoin refugees.’ In true celebration of zero sum ingenuity in this “the next big thing,” is the instantaneous monetary evaluations (can we repeat “market cap” another dozen times or so, please?) and the Vegas gambling culture that wellsprings around it, willing to trade each other out to get ahead with more than the next guy. New poker chips hinged on a limited resource: "gas": the hi-tech AI Singularity! Amirite?
Cryptography is merely a means of “hiding” things and a study of the hidden. Genetics, for example, is both a means of decrypting nature and encrypting our semiotic reference points. Back to magic money: One of the most impressive feats of modern cryptographers, to the tune of meta-irony in epic proportions, is not to convince people that math formulas are money—nay!, perceived scarcity and checkbook ledgers are old hat—but rather to convince swarms of people that their math formulas are money.
Hey, Neo: There are no altcoins. There are l e t t e r s and n u m b e r s. Symbols, in other words. And their power rests within the degree to which you believe in them. Your belief is the prima materia. Another neat matrix trick (spoiler alert): when Morpheus shows Neo that he can choose the blue or red pill, that framing is itself the matrix of binary, polarity, dichotomy. It’s what binds aether of space-time. Today vs. tomorrow / here vs. there / 1 vs. 0.
The ræl code that we’re under is a developing blueprint of social engineering, whereby tokenized incentives power a network of conscious attention. Your brain is the real estate, not ether. Your mind is the nexus of the hashing protocol. With your attention directed like a bull by a matador’s cape, digital memes and their socio-economic cultural slants are imported like .dat files from subreddits, news articles, BTCtalk and the marketing algorithms that churn our fear and greed daily into yet another merkle tree of idle attention hashing (this article’s synthesis is no exemption; there is no high horse here). Our eyes gaze into the pixelated horizon of what is promised and expertly crafted to be “the future.” Any day now it’s coming™.
Re-visit the concept of the Master & Slave concept in computer science. The algorithms at work are implicated to keep you passive and tuned in under the coded guise of a subtle revolution. But the kicker is this: Clicking buttons and tapping a keyboard isn’t inventive. Capitalism isn’t revolutionary; nor is building languages so machines can input/output/input/output until we get osteoporosis or the blood pools in our asses from incessantly building their architecture, ironically, to help alleviate our burden of work. Algo (αλγος) in Greek means “pain” after all. Speaking of Eris Industries --#clue, it ain’t money--, αλγος are the daughters of Eris. Pursuing magic spells of the gold coin in the endless spectacle of A-Z and 1-9 has turned us into asses.
No one is to blame here. We’re all human. Sometimes too human, but that’s beside the point. Nevermind the matador’s red cape, is what I’m saying. Instead heed the near flawless performance of replacing the bitcoin carrot with the ethereum carrot. There is no deliberate conspiracy of hoodwinking the masses, no i/o-lluminati hierarchy of corporate power that is sculpting the flow of what counts as money. This Mysterious stream dates back to wampum and cowry shells. Speaking of shells, the Elliot Waves in the stock market kind of resemble ammonite fossils. But I digress.
As the sex organs of the machine world (McLuhan) and the producers of novelty, the human mind is being conscripted en masse for the endless programming and consumption of information. The wizardry spell comes into play by being convinced that what Ether-i-YUM! “is” is substantially different than gold, bitcoin, or any other asset class. It’s an arbitrarily limited and immaterial ledger of numbers that sorts keys from people who have them and people who don’t. In plain English: it’s still you against your brothers and sisters. Oh, plus a self-driving car that is not theirs and a Slock’d Air-BnB they can’t sleep in. With Augur, you can even bet they’re dumber than you! Ahhh, the golden future.
Despite its aspirations to function as a Nike check, the Ethereum “brand” logo has a lot to teach us. The vesica piscis that rests in the center of two-interconnecting circles is a beautiful enigma cypher for the binary world we’re swimming in. As a geometric motif it has repeated throughout history and unfolded its wonders to the inquiring mind. The take-home message? In the life of patterns, though our hands drawing these very patterns are themselves a pattern of existence, strive to be source, not product; strive to be cause, not effect.
