Synopsis

This book is about the anthropic epoch and the extinction vortex we are witnessing. Currently a mass extinction of species is occurring. At the same time a mass extinction of languages and cultures is also occurring. These two mass extinctions, biological and cultural, are linked. Currently, transhumanists hope against hope to upload their minds into virtual reality to escape death. Both extinctions and the plan to escape them by uploading our minds into computer networks are rooted in a narcissistic delusion of immortal self-actualization. This is a pathetic death-defying delusion of late modernity - hypertrophic selfishness. The common denominator is a particular culture that has become dominant, spreading across the globe. As it transcends the world-system. This is the absurdity of the most profound delusional accomplishment of the anthropic epoch, the extinction vortex. The more powerful and individualistic we become the more power we crave, and the faster the extinction vortex spins us with it.
