A Google mythology
In a few thousands of years, when humanity has become extinct, something will dig the soil of the Earth and find a datacenter. Miraculously, it will have access to the contents of these hard drives and try to reconstruct the traces of our world.
Google has colonized the world to make its Earth. It absorbed feelings, captured our relationship. It heard our most hidden desires, drawn maps, purchased the language and our behaviors. It convinced the states to disappear silently. Ray Kurzweil explained that we were going disappear to survive, definitely. We disappear for other reason. A hard drive on which the memory of an obscure engineer is still legible, Urs Hölzle. He was the director of the infrastructure, data centers , computers . He try to prevent human beings to interrupt their operation. The world has now disappeared. There remains only the Earth and all the accumulated memories waiting to live again
