- Increase in programmed biological matter - humans, livestock, monoculture crops, and invasive species
- Increase in inert matter - anthropogenic mass in cement, plastic, metals, and other materials is increasing along the White Nile
- Explosion in computational distributed systems - smartphones and other new technologies in even the poorest communities.
