Is the universe expanding and changing in time and space or is it just an illusion?
For ideas to evolve you don’t always need to destroy old ones. Rather it is like climbing a mountain and gaining a new vantage point from which to see and conceive anew.
We have evolved from a world of trust over the last 30 years into a world of distrust today.
AI is like a new fast evolving new species.
Life starts simple and small, evolves into complexity and chaos, we try to make sense of it.
The key to evolution is change, in fact for life itself - evolving, maybe even self-evolved rules produce change and progress. The Truth is an evolving idea, never fixed.
Are our gene editing and artificial intelligence efforts augmenting humans a part of natural evolution? Our transformational constructions and edits are constituent of the change in our species, self-generated in their case.
Progress is always evolutionary on a large and long term scale.
Is evolution a line or a circle? If circular, then there is no start, no end.
With life, go forward, find a way, yours, and your own truth, let it evolve over time, and know it’s not everyone else’s.
Are there unending truths and cycles or is all ever changing and evolving?
In 20 years assume most children will be created in vitro. How do feel about that? Your children will be healthier and more intelligent but less natural in the sense of (less) undisturbed biology.
Our biology will evolve with the biology of the AIs we are developing. Intelligent machines are biological and part of evolution. Humans are complex programs passed on from generation to generation in a more evolved form. Soon, those programs will be able to self modify
It took a long time for humans to make nature work for them - now the challenge is to not forget where we came from.
As humans, our place in the universe seems quite unique –so far no other sign of evolved life. We are special – why? And where from here? At least we are in a position to ask those questions.
It took a long time in evolution for humans to possess the self aware consciousness which is ours today. Was it an accident or the logical advancement of our biology? Do we have a sense of what the next breakthrough might be?
