Was just imagining a future where we actaully join forces with computer tech and merge together to make a new race.
I have heard a lot of people talking about how we haven't changed much on an evolutionary scale in the past several thousand years. What if we are at the beginning of a new phase of evolution and just not realised it yet?
It would be opposed to the common theory/theme of robots taking over the world and wars between AI's and humans.
The interest sparked from watching a T.E.D talk (Um posted it somewhere) and thinking of robokinesis...-a half made up word to explain the idea of linking a brain to a computer to manipulate real things via robotics or controling a computer using the mind alone. At this early stage you have to program the computer to follow your instructions.
So in this (imagined) ideal section of human evolution, we will mostly become cyborgs.
I'm interested in what people think of this...?
How will it change society?
How will it change the world?
Could we all end up living in a utopia without greed/hunger/hatred/suffering?
And if that is so... what next? If it is not to be...why not?
