Free Land – Chapter 2 : Artificial Intelligence Systems and Population Control

Copyright 2017 Vincent Banial

One of the first challenges at Free Land, was to figure out how to eliminate Human Government.

With structure came efficiency. To maintain that efficiency, that structure had to be consistent. If that structure was under the control of a Human, then Human Emotions could affect the structure.

By replacing Humans with Artificial Intelligence, Human Emotions were eliminated and consistency would be maintained.

There is a concept from Computer Programming called Structured Programming. It is based on a tree like design structure. The objective was to improve the quality and clarity of the system being designed. The Main Controlling Module is at the top. Branches further down controled more specific things. The Branches interacted with the Main Module and other Branches as needed.

This approach was used when Free Land developed it’s Artificial Intelligence Control Systems. Those systems took over previous Government functions. Over time, all forms of Government were eliminated and replaced by Artificial Intelligence Control Systems.

Human emotions were eliminated, and so everyone would get treated equally. The underlying principal of Free Land was that Everyone was Equal.

When Everyone is in effect “Equal”, people learned that they could “Trust” one another. “Trust” was one key factor which was hard to come by in the old way of doing things. Lack of Trust created the Wars. Lack of Trust destroyed marriages. Lack of Trust brought on the Nuclear Winter, which almost eliminated Humanity.

Trusting one another was one of the cornerstones of the foundation developed to create Free Land.

The people of Free Land did not compete with one another. Instead they helped and cared for each other. This was a totally different mindset and it took a generation, for it to become the natural way of interacting with one another.

In the distant past before Free Land for example, when you had work done at your home you called in a number of contractors and got quotes to try to make sure that you were not being taken advantage of. When people competed with one another, some would try and take advantage of others.

Previously Money was the compensation for any work done. In Free Land the compensation was being able to help one another. It was a totally different mind set from the old ways of doing things and because of that Free Land survived.

The Main Artificial Intelligence System was called Mother Jill. The Sub Systems in the branches below were named Aunts, as in Aunt Helen or Aunt Betty. Each Sub System controlled specific facets of life.

Humans were only involved in the maintaining the systems and updating the software as requested by the AI Systems. One rather surprising thing which occurred as the Aunt AI subsystems came online, was that the Mother Jill Controlling System taught the Sub Systems a unique AI Language which only the AI Systems could understand. Yes, the AI Systems communicated with each other via their own language. Graphic of a computer data centre courtesy of http://www.urltarget.comAll the AI Systems and all the Sub Systems could also understand the language spoken by Humans in Free Land. Humans could also communicate any needs to the AI sub-systems by actually speaking to them. Later on a type of skull cap was developed which allowed one to communicate with the AI Sub Systems by speaking inside your head. The subsystem would stimulate specific regions of your brain and you heard their reply, again all inside your head.

Each Human member of Free Land had body implants. The implants in the palms of the hands, for example, allowed controlled access to buildings and services. The AI Sub Systems knew who did what and when, via the implants. The AI Systems also monitored the health of the citizens via the implants. For example, blood tests could done via the implants without drawing blood.

Because of the devastation that had taken place on Earth, resources were limited. Free Land’s food was grown in Green Houses. The population had to be controlled. Giving Birth was an affair of the entire community. Male Sperm was stored in Sperm banks. Pregnancy was via artificial insemination. The matching of potential Mother and Father was under the control of the AI Sub Systems. Genetic factors came into play and helped to create a stronger genetic base of the future population of Free Land.

When someone was going to die, as would be indicated by the implanted monitors, the AI Sub Systems went to the Gene database and matched females with males. The female was then artificially inseminated. This again eliminated Human Emotions. Falling in Love with someone who may not be the best genetic match could negatively impact the child. Caring for a child with birth defects would  also negatively impact everyone and so had to be minimized.

The AI AUNT Sub Systems made sure that the only the best genetic matches were allowed to combine to create children. This was for the good of the child and for the good of Free Land. Birth Defects were eliminated by this process.

The gene pool of the newborns became stronger. It takes a lot of resources to care for a child with mental or physical handicaps. Free Land did not have extra resources. It was also viewed as being unfair to the newborns, to allow the mating of inferior or poorly matched genes pools. All males had their Sperm collected and frozen. Then they had an operation to cut the tubes, which the sperm would have used to exit the body. Pregnancy was only possible via artificial insemination. Pregnancy was very strictly controlled, to maintain zero growth in the population numbers and to improve the genetic health of the overall population of Free Land.

The Asteroid Impact, followed by the Nuclear Winter will give birth to Free Land. Humanity will Survive.

Free Land, where survivors built a better world.

The Asteroid hitting the earth, destroyed the Middle East. Then the Nuclear Winter arrived, as nations fought over scarce energy resources.

Pockets of Humanity survived unscathed.

They saw how the old ways destroyed much of the Earth and so they started to experiment.

Out the chaos, the idea of Free Land was incubated. It already had factories and institutes of high education. It had been a High Technology Artificial Intelligence Center. If was also self-sufficient with fresh uncontaminated under ground water. Power generation was Hydrogen based after the Nuclear Fusion Reactors were shut down. Most of the population had very high Tech skills.

The model for their new Free Land was the lost tribes in the Amazon Rain Forest. No need for Money. No need for work. No need for Government. No need for Taxes. No Banks.

Free Land prospered. It’s people developed the skills that they wanted. They spent time with their families.

Everything was shared equally. No Money Hoarding Billionaires, as all citizens knew that they were equal. No money, as goods and services were available to everyone at no cost. Each member of Free Land contributed what they could and when they could. Each person knew that they played an important part in the survival of Free Land.

While Humanity disappeared from large parts of the Globe, that small pocket of Humanity survived, worked and shared together and created a new way of living called Free Land.

Photo Gallery of “The Sheepdogs” concert at the Festival of Friends 2011

Since I found out that I can setup Portfolios on this site, I gave it shot.

I have uploaded a large gallery of Vincent Banial’s photos of “The Sheepdogs” performing at the Festival of Friends back in 2011. That concert was immediately after The Sheepdogs broke out into the mainstream via being on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine.

The Festival of Friends had record crowds that night. I heard numbers of about 70,000 fans. On the bill were The Sheepdogs and also City and Colour. Because of the huge number of people at that concert I left during City and Colour‘s set. There were cars parked on the main road all the way up to the QEW (or is it called Hwy 403 by Ancaster). I’m so glad that I left early. It must have been mayhem when over 70,000 would have left all together that night.

The concert was great. The Festival of Friends is an amazing Festival. Wish that someone could copy it in Toronto. Well worth the drive to Ancaster every year. Free entry and cheap parking fee. Normally there is lots of parking. The night The Sheepdogs played in 2011 there was no parking. The lot was jammed. the roads were jammed. I did not see any parking tickets on the vehicles parked outside the FoF grounds, so even the Police were cool. Was a fun day and evening back i.n 2011.

You can view the photos from the Main Menu at the top of the Home page. The last Menu item is called Vincent Banial Photography Portfolio. Click on that to get you there.

Ok, to make it easier, just click on the large thumbnail photo below to take you to The Sheepdogs photo gallery. Once in the Gallery just click on the square Thumbnail photos to view the enlarged photos.

Diemonds performing at eOne Party at Gibson Showroom 2015

Diemonds at 2015 ‪eOne‬ - Gibson Showroom - CMW party

eOne Music Canada (a division of Entertainment One), #1 independent music label in North America, put on a party at the Gibson Guitars Showroom in Toronto in 2015. At the party they had some great band playing, one of which was Diemonds. The stage was tiny, light were dim but they sounded great. It was an up close and personal concert with maybe 100 plus people in the room, with the bar at the other end.

Eric Alper, an Executive at eOne, invited us to the party. Thanks again Eric. I still have no idea how you heard about me and Uniquely Toronto.

I had a set of photos of Diemonds performing at the eOne party posted on ccvic.zenfolio.com which is closed. Even Google sent me an email asking what was happening with all the 404 results, because their spiders were not finding anything on the our old zenfolio site.

I have the Flickr site up. There are things that I would change if I could, but it is a really fast site and there are tons of things which Flickr provides which are super.

I’ve posted the Diemonds photos into an album on our Flickr site. Just click on the photo above to get there.

You could also click on this line to go to our new Vincent Banial Flickr Photo site.

Love this band. To give you a taste of Diemonds I’ve embedded a video of their song DIEMONDS – GET THE F&$K OUTTA HERE

Reincarnation? Young kid has detailed and verified memories of a past life as an American Fighter Pilot, who had died during World War 2

This is young Kid has many detailed memories of a past life as a WW2 US Fighter Pilot.

His parents were able track down, via US Government Service Records, that said US Fight Pilot had in fact died during World War 2 and in the manner and location described by this young lad. Other memory details have also been verified and confirmed.

When he met the sister of said Fighter Pilot, the Kid knew her name and that there was a second sister and also named her.

A really fascinating video…
