Nokia, Defense Tech Wizards Unwittingly Help Mother Earth Rise Up Against Humanity

If Planet Earth were covered with trillions of synthetic brain cells, each monitoring its surroundings and communicating with neighbor cells, would it develop thoughts and feelings of its own? Would such a planet rise up against its human overlords in the manner of HAL 9000 in Arthur C. Clark's 2001: A Space Odyssey? 

Isn't that a question with possible answers so dangerous that nobody dare ask it?

Apparently not.
