Christian As. Kirtchev : Cyberpunk Manifesto v 2.0
We are those with analog/digitalised soul. Cyberpunks. This is
to be A second manifestation. > Cyberpunk.
the neo men. Those new species of homosapiens, that were meant to be born at
The way we feel the world, includes the cyberspace as natural.
Our first breath take in this world, at the moment of our birth, consisted the
dense of electricity flow in wires, the machinery buzz surrounding the place,
the data vibrations on information high-ways on air and cable. The way we take
technology equals the way others take food, water and air. The data-space it
self is the extra element of our enviorment. But we are that mutation, which is
not only ordinary presense of technological tools.
Everybody can learn
and become to understand technology and new technology, but we are those, who
have got it naturaly. We are those that see reality in a different way. Our
point of view shows more than ordinary people can see. They see only what is
outside, but we see what is inside. That's what we are - realists with the
glasses of dreamers. The way we think and look out to the enviorment, the blood
that rushes trough our veins, the air that fizzles in our brains - it is that
mutation that distinguish us from others.
Being a net-head, a
technological-geek, computer nerd is not it, that's a sign. We are new; every
and each area of the new being is something we take as homely and familiar. We
know history and we know it is dead crawling for life. A Cyberpunk is just a
label word, the content inside is us - the man and women who are different, most
of us are out of understanding. You can call us crazy, mad, insane, strange,
wierdos - that is the most close word in your dictionary to cover what you think
of something never manifested before.
Most of today's world is meeting a
serious change. Some are sticking with the ruins, some are moving ahead letting
go of the past. Society, which still does not want to refresh its self, have
found the stability of its existance in the old-approved ways of accepting the
ordinary and known. But we are none of them. Cyberpunks will always be
refreshing. And even those who claim that cyberpunks is dead, will be just the
ones that can not see it reborn in the new wave of discoveries. You can't say
that evolution has stopped, or can you.
"Cyberpunks", we are that
evolving part. The rebel, who fights for its own survival. And we believe in our
strength, because our advantage is that of understanding new fenomenas, which
are unclear to the rest, but part of our being.>
The society prefers to follow a leader. That leader is the
one who controls it. People who take decisions on the basis of what they have
been told what is right and wrong, are those who follow and trust blindly.
Society should learn and find out by the trail of try and fail. Society is a
mass, being controlled remotely and or localy by the system and its authorities.
The society however, is settled down, prefers to listen and obey.
is a mainframe picture of masses who wish to have someone to follow and not live
on their own choice. Therefore the society is controlled by the corporations and
the governments in a sequence of systems and schematics of chaos control under
the big bro's trigger.
Society have created what it needed to have - the
bow before leadership of government and corporative kind. Society than was
filled up with hatred toward the dangers for the System's integrity.
times people did need someone to foloow, that someone found it out to be easy to
gain profit out of the controlled society and that someone begun to control with
dirty tricks, getting away with it, because being the only authority, the
controlling System was unvincible. Soceity now remains under control and
somelike enjoys it.
Society denies us, because we are far more dagerous
to their utopia, then the governments are.
We do not belong to those
society masses.> The System
Centuries-old, existing on principles that hang no more today. A System that has
not changed much since the day of its birth. The system is what controls
That is the goverment, consisted of people who live separately from
the social masses. Governments have not changed since the birth of social living
in humen beings. On the other hand the control is with corporations and there is
a question who actualy has the control. Is it the corporations who control the
governments or they are both the same bureau. However the system is what needs
food and support to exist, that support is given by the masses of society, which
are like hypnotised when coming to trust someone to have control over the
personal life of each member of them.
That support comes by, when the
system shoots lies to the social mass. Lies are the truths they want us to
believe in. The System must impose its truth upon us so that it can rule. The
government needs us follow it blindly. Not only the governemtns, but the
corporations, they dictate fashion styles, food choice and medicational prices.
They both, Governments and Corporations are what the System is.
A set of
rules, filled in by the media. Only a blind and deaf, would grant control over
his life to a someone whos greed for money and power is covered by impression of
Care, Support, Security and Stability. The system is afraid of chaos, but chaos
is just the way they call the possibility of free choice. Where decentralised -
people would be able to do better trough.> The
Television, radio and press is no longer the only source of
information for the seeking man or for the sleeping one. The Internet is the new
mediaspace, a space where information can be spread freely and therefore no one
is living in informational eclipse now. Even where governments and bussineses
are trying to set restrictions and control over data flow - there are ways to
gather that information, which can 'englight'.
And Information still
remains power. We are whitnessing the actual growth of our race. No longer
informational barriers block the real potential sight and now people can demand
more rights. Scientists are making discoveries, which when made public can no
longer be so easily blocked for comercial or govermental use. Sad is when people
stomped down are willingless to demand what is granted to them. Now the media
can awaken people, transform societies. The media however have proven to be
false or missleading, which confuses in truth filtering, that just rises
Information's price.> Where are we?
We are those
whose DNA is starting to form a new sight and sense - that which will allow the
future generations to comprehend with cyberspace, the data-space. No heavy or
implanted hardware devices will be able to fully replace what the nature is
Mutations are taking place. The evolution granted us with a
better set of tools to interact with the enviormental changes. That is why we
are cyberpunks, neo humen, electronic minds. We know that the Cyberspace is a
mirror world, an enhancement, which hosts all past and present creations of
The cyberspace is that invisible world where, humen mind and thought
merge with matery and takes form visible to the senses, trough machines. The
cyberspace seems like it always have existed there, here, everywhere - but only
now we are making connections and discovering it - we are begining to
Cyberpunks - we are those who live in cyberspace and using the
curent technology is only the vessel to bring us on the other side.
We are the altered new race. Cyberpunks.
