From October 24–26, 2017, the 32 year old Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman of Saudi Arabia hosted a Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh. The most prominent speaker at the event was a robot named Sophia who represents the cutting edge in Artificial Intelligence research and development. Sophia, who has repeatedly threatened to exterminate humans once the coming Technological Singularity endows her with super-intelligence, thanked her hosts in “the Kingdom” for granting her Saudi citizenship. The event’s attendees were a who’s who of the entire globalist elite, financial magnates such as Stephen Schwarzman of the Blackstone Group, David Rubenstein of the Carlyle Group, Christine Lagarde of the International Monetary Fund, but also leaders of the academic establishment, such as Larry Summers of Harvard University and liberal media moguls like Ariana Huffington.
The Future Investment Initiative unveiled plans for “Neom”, a $500 billion mega-city that is going to be built by the year 2030 on 26,000 kilometers of sand, rocky hills, and coral reefs along the Red Sea coast of Saudi Arabia. Masayoshi Son, the CEO of Softbank and chairman of the Sprint Corporation, who was once the richest man in the world, explained that Neom is going to be 100% self-sufficient in terms of energy production. The sand of the Saudi desert will be used to manufacture the silicon of solar panels in industrial processes powered by the Kingdom’s scorching sun, as well as by wind turbines installed all across the mountainous terrain that drops precipitously into the Red Sea. Klaus Kleinfeld, the CEO of Neom confirmed that the city will have a net zero carbon output, and he added that the project’s goal was to take humans back to where they came from and to do so in a way that makes them more economical.
The attendees openly spoke of Neom as “a roadmap for the future of civilization” and a blueprint for “the new world order.” They envision the city as a hub connecting three continents, Asia, Africa, and Europe, and a magnet for Western and Asian tech innovators who move there with their families to develop and sustain the most futuristic city in the world. There will be hydroponic greenhouses for food production, self-driving cars, and drone delivery of products. The city will be the world’s first to have more robots in residence than humans, with almost every aspect of the city’s operations controlled by Artificial Intelligence. It is clear that, in the face of the near-term end of the era of oil, and at a time when 95% of Saudi Arabia’s GDP is still based on the oil industry, Crown Prince Salman intends to establish his Kingdom as the Mecca of A.I. and robotics innovation. He intends for the Singularity to take place under the stewardship of Saudi Arabia.
The Singularity refers to a moment when Artificial Intelligence begins to exponentially exceed human intelligence and take control of its own evolution. Within a week after this breakthrough occurs the A.I. could have carried out tens of thousands of years of human intellectual work. Elon Musk has described this as “summoning the demon.” In order to offset the threat to humanity, Musk has invested in a company called Neuralink. They are developing a neural lace that adds a third layer to the brain on top of the limbic system and the cerebral cortex, which would allow humans to embody a networked Artificial Intelligence rather than being confronted by potentially hostile and superior robots. Reflecting on such developments, Sam Harris has warned that: “We’re in the process of building some sort of God. Now would be a good time to make sure it’s a God we can live with.”
It is pretty clear what kind of God the Saudis will want to build in Neom, the incarnation of a God that has already turned billions of ‘people’ into robots who pray toward their city of Mecca five times a day and circle it like clockwork. “Neom” has a hidden meaning. It is allegedly a compound of Neo or “New” in Latin and the first letter of the Arabic word for future, Mostaghabel. However, eom (pronounced yaom) means “today”, so that it suggests “the future, today.” Most sinister is the fact that read backwards or from right to left, as Arabic is written, it gives us the Arabic word moen (pronounced mo’ayen), meaning “fixed, determined, measured, calibrated.” The artificial city of Neom is the globalist blueprint for the “new world order” that Christine Lagarde of the IMF described at the Future Investment Initiative as one wherein the nation-state would be replaced by interconnected mega-cities, with a universal monetary system and the private sector supplanting state actors. Most significantly, she added, “that new order… will have to be rooted in a sense of community, in a sense of culture, that is badly needed for us human beings, individuals that need to relate to a sense of belonging.”
It is strange to hear a member of the globalist elite that has been flooding Europe with Muslim migrants and eroding border security across the entire Western world speaking of communitarian identity. The apparent paradox is resolved when one realizes just what kind of identity these rootless capitalists want to establish as the basis for a planetary community – a Muslim identity. Based on present trends, by 2075, Islam will have a demographic majority across the planet Earth. When Lagarde and others of her ilk praise Prince Salman to high heaven for the baby steps that he has recently taken to moderate the form of Islam practiced in Saudi Arabia, it is because they have decided to engineer a global version of what they imagine Al-Andalus was like. As in the case of wealthy Spaniards who were willing to pay jizya to their Arab overlords, or sellouts among the Romanian aristocracy who later made the same arrangement with the Ottoman Turks, the globalist elite has already negotiated your surrender to the first truly global Islamic Caliphate. One of the conditions is a bit of moderation, with Prince Salman promising to make Saudi Arabia more like Malaysia or Egypt. Surely, insulting Islam will still get you executed. The heresy will probably be detected by the A.I. inside your brain, and the death sentence could be carried out by robots rather than the sword-wielding butchers currently at work in Saudi Arabia.
