The term "the Jackpot" of course comes from William Gibson's 2014
science fiction novel The Peripheral.

There's nowadays a subreddit r/collapse where redditors discuss, well,
"the collapse", that being their term.

I've been wondering for a while - what other terms, from science fiction
or Internet subcultures or elsewhere - are there for this current thing
humanity is experiencing? Besides "the Jackpot" and "the collapse", can
anyone list any additional widely or significantly used ones?

(Not to mention, just, an anthropogenic mass extinction event. Cue
reactionaries on this list freaking out because they are primed to
protect dolla dolla bill from evidence of global warming etc.)
