Cyberspace as described by William Gibson in Neuromancer was prefigured in internal linkNikola Tesla's 1901 plan for a world system of totally interconnected, planetary communications. He believed he could engineer a globe unified by the universal regulation of internal linktime and fully traversed by flows of internal linklanguage, images, and money-all reduced to an undifferentiated internal linkflux of internal linkelectrical energy.

the Network Gaia Mark Pesce is 23

Clearly, the notion that computer internal linknetworks are booting up the mind of the planet is not a  techno-scientific scenario at all, however much the internal linklanguage of complex systems or internal linkartificial intelligence may help may help us get a handle on the internal linkInternet's explosive, internal linkout-of-control growth or it's possible mindlike properties. The leap from the global brain to the internal linkGaian mind remains  essentially a internal linkmetaphysical move-- which doesn't mean the leap is worth hazarding. For whether or not we take internal linkMark Pesce literally, his vision of the online internal linknoosphere gives voice to a growing if inchoate intuition that computer networks and virtual technologies have opened up what amounts to a new category of knowing and being, a unique and unparalleled global space of intelligence, experience, terror, and communion. On the other hand, even if we accept the outlandish supposition that Gaia is indeed waking up and rubbing her satellite eyes, we cannot assume that this electronic consciousness will be unified to itself, let alone achieve a state of mystical perfection.

This is the lesson of Gibson's Neuromancer myth: The cyberspace AI that achieves technological godhead at the end of his first Novel cannot maintain its omniscient internal linkinfinity, and it fragments into the crafty polytheistic subroutines of Haitian internal linkVoodoo.
