With time new conspiracy theories always come up and similarly a creepy conspiracy theory about the internet is recently making rounds online. Titled ‘Dead Internet Theory’ claims that the internet has died sometime between 2016 and 2017, reports The Atlantic. Now you are thinking what were you using then? Well, today ‘MOST’ people we see online doing things like publishing content, posting social media updates, and commenting are actually bots (making most things online fake).
This theory comes from an online forum ‘Agora Road’s Macintosh Cafe‘ where a user named IlluminatiPirate shared a very long thread titled “Dead Internet Theory: Most of the Internet is Fake,” explaining how much of the Internet is created and managed by AI and filled with bots. It also has some theories inspired by the idea shared by anonymous users of 4chan’s paranormal section and another forum called Wizardchan.
In the thread, IlluminatiPirate claims that the internet died in 2016 or early 2017 and that much of the “supposedly human-produced content” you see online was actually created using AI.
“I’ve seen the same threads, the same pics, and the same replies reposted over and over across the years to the point of me seeing it as unremarkable,” IlluminatiPirate said.
Corporations working in conjunction with the government are the reasons for this. As the corporations push propaganda and coerce actual users to purchase products. These are acting as shadowy puppet masters which are pulling the strings of the internet. The U.S government is engaging in artificial intelligence-powered gaslighting for the entire world population.
“I think it’s entirely obvious what I’m subtly suggesting here given this setup,” IlluminatiPirate’s post continues. “The U.S. government is engaging in an artificial intelligence-powered gaslighting of the entire world population.”
With this emerging theory, we can surely say that today’s Internet is widely different from it was a few years ago. This is due to better algorithms as they provide more accurate and aggregated data. And what we see online is a result of AI and these algorithms, taking “organic” experiences far away.
But for the fact, users consume most of the content online from memes, TikToks, aggravating tweets that are created only by people (at least for now).
