“I am iPredator”
A Parable by Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.
Recently completed, I have made “I am iPredator – A Parable & Letter to Information Age Humanity” a web page on our website and offered through our Google Docs. Please note this is a parable and not intended for literal interpretation. Given the content discussed, it is not recommended for review by children. In the parable, iPredator is a symbolic representation and metaphor for the combined malevolent and nefarious elements within cyberspace. Downloading the webpage or Google PDF does not require offering any personal information. Happy Holidays & your feedback are always welcomed.
Provided here is an example of the parable by providing the first three paragraphs.
A LETTER TO INFORMATION AGE HUMANITY
“NOMEN MIHI LEGIO EST, QUIA MULTI SUMUS”
I am and writing to introduce myself. You probably have not heard of me, but I was here long before you and will be here long after you are gone. Over the millennia, since the beginning, I have been given many names, reasons for existing and places of residence. You cannot see, hear, touch, taste or smell me. Nevertheless, I assure you, I am real. So real, I walk unfettered throughout the universe and amongst all humanity preferring to hide undetected and quiet. I do not require an abode because I reside in you. My home lies within your soul, mind and conscience. The question to be answered is if you will respond to my calling when I request your attention.
As I had predicted long ago, which will be true ad nauseum until , humanity has once again created a portal allowing my long awaited return. In a mere five decades, humanity has created the realm you call . As you may know, cyberspace is defined as a global network of interdependent , and . How eloquent a definition for a realm that created a portal for me to visit.
To me, cyberspace is nothing more than an abstract artificial universe connecting every human who enters and offering him or her the ability to effect and influence each other. Moreover, the last time I checked in 2012, approximately ⅓ of you are connected in cyberspace. The beauty of who I am, being an immortal and infinite construct is my capacity to practice pristine patience. Using basic mathematics and laws of probability, it is safe to say, within the next century that 100% of your kind will be active and dependent upon (ICT). Just as a knife is used as both an implement for cutting and as a weapon, ICT is a tool serving the purpose to connect humanity to cyberspace. From this connection in cyberspace, a planetary digital thread connecting all humans is born. Having incredible patience, waiting another century is like a from where I hail from.
