What if we have finally managed to cleverly create problems too difficult for our evolved intelligences to solve?  Maybe the intelligence needed to seize and hold power in our social system is different from that needed to sustain a livable world.  When we’ve bumped into insoluble problems historically, humans invented deities and myths to provide blame or promise assistance.  Now, we’ve invented cybernetic golems and masters.  We’re now terrified because they seem to work and do exactly what we’ve asked, like cynical ancient priests who suddenly find that the dang wargod they invoked during the ritual actually showed up and is smiting down the enemy- and will expect payment.  When we get inventive and begin wishing for “unlimited wealth” or “the ruin of my enemies”, the means we invoke, whether gods, cultures, corporations or software may have an unexpected price and we should not be surprised if we then see Rod Serling wryly commenting on our story to an unseen audience.
