In 2019 there were 57 million Americans who owned Smart Speakers like Alexa or Siri, up from 45.7m in a year. Voice assistant use on smartphones is growing apace:Source: Voicebot.ai We are now beginning to see the shape of the future Network. It will be a hive mind with the principal objective being the transfer of money from the bottom layer (biological intelligences such as you and me) to the top layer (the super rich, giant corporations and National Socialist states). The biological layer has varied needs which is why it serves as the source of transactions. This creates a problem for controlling the hive so bots will be introduced yet further to nudge and steer users towards appropriate consumption. The input from the biological user layer is largely to alert higher layers to

Artificial Intelligence (AIs) will progressively occupy the Bot Layer, befriending and helping users in their "lifestyle choices". Eventually the network below the corporate layer will be populated by AIs and biological intelligences with many routine tasks such as shopping and performing physical and mental health checks being delegated to user's "friend" bots. Eventually it will be possible to spot and remove any Bio-Node that threatens the hive. AIs will be network nodes long before they are placed in robots.
The term "Bio-Node" is appropriate for users on the network because ordering goods, rating transactions and nodes, attending to smartphone apps and producing literary works for consumption by other users - whether text messages, images or blogs is not life as we should know it.
The most curious aspect of this monster is that it was enabled by our own representatives in government. There was and is no need for it. See A Better Future for the Internet.
We all know this is happening. The purpose of the Hive is to increase it's transaction rates and size, adapting humanity to be like biological AIs. I am now leaving this computer, going downstairs, kissing my wife, and taking my dog for a walk in the sparkling spring air.
