In another clip, which he interviewed in the year 1999 resurfaced recently where he predicts how many roles the internet will consume our everyday lifestyle and how little we will able be to control it.
In the clip, the artist claims that the Internet is an alien life form.
“I think we’re actually on the cusp of something exhilarating and terrifying.”

When the interviewer pushes the artist to give an explanation for the views on the internet, Bowie explains that the situation in the future will be different as compared to the year 1999.
“The interplay between user and provider will be so in Sympatico it’s going to crush our ideas of what mediums are all about.”
The clip has been resurfaced recently as the prediction is eerily true and we can notice how the ads and cookies have captured our every move.
In typical Bowie fashion, he adds, “Is there life on mars? Yes, it’s just landed here.”
