The presence of the “Black Goo” or Grey Goo in different traditions from occultism to sci fi has been as constant as ambiguous. In the Gnosticism, the main representation is
the figure or abstract entity is a swarm of Archons a collectivity directed by the will of the Demiurge. Through different context Archons meant “to rule” and its etymology
became the root of terms as “hierarchy or Monarch” or anarchy”.
Those mythological figures got reconfigured by the modern Science fiction, particular after the novel from 1957 by Fred Hoyle: “The Black Cloud” in which an unconventional
form of swarm intelligence goes through the space finding its own optimization metabolism menacing the resources of the Earth. Another context where appear the Notion of
