    Since ancient times, humans have been obsessed with predicting the future, and artificial intelligence spawned by ant colony algorithms has made Laplace's demon-like precise predictions possible. In the future, vertical farming will be able to bring the growth of all crops under algorithmic control, predicting every second of a plant's respiration. The story describes an artificial intelligence drone caring for the growth of sugarcane, its duty being to eliminate all accidental factors and nurture plant growth, even though humans have long been extinct... At this moment, the appearance of an ant suddenly reminds the drone of its first patrol, in an era after the collapse of collectivism in the 20th century, a sugar mill destroyed by globalized precise predictive behavior...The cultivation and industrialization of sugar, along with global futures trading, are referred to as "Phantom Sugar" in the futures field due to the unpredictability of its value. The value of sugar itself is also a killer of the "ecosystem" of sugar factories.

    The work explores topics such as swarm algorithms, future agriculture, Laplace's demon, and humanity's obsession with predicting and controlling behavior. In ancient China, including records in Sima Qian's "Records of the Grand Historian," there are numerous accounts of using sugar to guide the walking patterns of ant colonies to predict the future and alter history. Classic ant colony algorithms are also present in AI neural networks, used to simulate blueprints for the future.The work revolves around research on the Shunde Sugar factory in Guangdong, China, drawing inspiration from the electronic industry mass movement in 1970s China, as well as Project Cybersyn by the government of Guillermo Allende Gossens, Chile 1970.

    人类自古以来就对预测未来抱有执念,而蚁群算法催生的人工智能,让拉普拉斯妖一般的精准预测成为可能。在未来,垂直农业已经可以将一切作物的生长纳入算法的控制,植物每一秒的呼吸,都可以被预测。故事描述了一个照顾甘蔗生长的人工智能无人机,第3亿9千5百万次的巡逻,其职责是排除一切偶然因素,照顾植物的生长,尽管人类早已灭绝……这时,一个蚂蚁的出现,让无人机突然想起,自己的第一次巡逻,那是在20世纪的集体主义崩解之后的时代里,一个被全球化的精准预测行为,毁灭的糖厂……糖的种植和工业化,以及全球期货交易,因其不可预测性,被期货圈称为“妖糖”,其自身也是工业制糖厂这种“生态系统”的杀手。作品关于蚁群算法,由AI计算的垂直农业,也关于拉普拉斯妖,关于人类对于预测与控制行为的执念。中国古代,包括司马迁的史记在内,有大量关于用糖引导蚁群的行走规律来预测未来,改变历史的记载;AI神经网络中也有经典的蚁群算法,用于模拟未来的蓝图。拉普拉斯妖或许是蚁群的形状,一种超个体生命,徒劳而努力的坚持着对蓝图的模拟......作品围绕对广东顺德糖厂的调研展开,灵感来源于上世纪70年代中国出现的电子工业群众运动,以及1970年左右智利阿连德政府的协同控制工程。
