1. Love and Power. This is the story of the dream that was built in the 1990s that computers can create a new kind of world stability. That would create a new global capitalist class free of any risk and without the boom and bust of the past. It would also abolish the political power and create a new type of democracy through the Internet, where millions of people would be connected as nodes in cybernetic systems – without hierarchy.

2. The use and abuse of the concepts of vegetation. This is the story of how our modern scientific idea of ‚Äč‚Äčnature, the ecosystem of self-regulation is actually a fantasy of the machine. It has little to do with the complexity of nature. It is based on cybernetic ideas that were projected in the wild in the 1950s by scientists ambitious. A static machine theory of order that sees humans, and everything else on the planet, as components – teeth – in a system.

3. The monkey in the machine and the machine in the monkey. This episode examines why humans find this vision for seductive. The film argues that because all the political dreams of changing the world for the better seem to have failed – so have taken refuge in the machine fantasies that say we have no control over our actions because our failure is excused.
