1. The digital world dominates real life.
2. The subject is not „digital humankind“ but digitized humankind.
3. Our life is digitized, so it is no longer „a life.“
4. „To digitize“ means replacing feelings, ideas, and actions with numbers.
5. We are mainly living in the realm of numbers, and of whatever can be represented by numbers. We are very far from understanding this kind of domination.
6. Digitization distances us more and more from real life, and we deny this effect because it operates openly and places too many things in question.
7. „Digitization“ always means: to circumscribe, paralyze, sterilize, devitalize, and in the end: to kill.
8. A digital person no longer knows how to take charge of their own life, or how to organize it or give it meaning: s/he is digitized, thus not able to think, so no longer is
9. Being a digitized homo numericus
means accepting that one is nothing: the simulacrum of something or someone that left no trace.
10. It is self-evident that „domination“ means that „the real“ becomes ancillary, but also „reality“ no longer interests anyone, and finally: “The Digital” becomes self-sufficient.
