Notice the story below begins with “wealthy humans…” and continues with “will upgrade themselves into some idea of a divine being…”
This is the conglomeration of every horrible dystopic future novel and movie you’ve ever seen, except it isn’t science fiction or someone’s bad dream; this is real life.
Via the Telegraph:
Wealthy humans are likely become cyborgs within 200 years as they gradually merge with technology like computers and smart phones, a historian has claimed.
Yuval Noah Harari, a professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, said the amalgamation of man and machine will be the ‘biggest evolution in biology’ since the emergence of life four billion years ago…
“We are programmed to be dissatisfied, “ said Prof Harari. “Even when humans gain pleasure and achievements it is not enough. They want more and more.
“I think it is likely in the next 200 years or so homo sapiens will upgrade themselves into some idea of a divine being, either through biological manipulation or genetic engineering of by the creation of cyborgs, part organic part non-organic.
Talk about an elite breakaway civilization. These people are going to upgrade themselves into their own Gods.
