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 fast evolving, new species.
Life starts simple and small, evolves into complexity and chaos. We then 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 gene editing and artificial intelligence augmenting humans a part of natural evolution?
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 be affected by the AIs we are developing. Intelligent machines are part of evolution. Humans are complex programs passed on from generation to generation. 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.
Our place as humans in the universe is really 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?
Humans as analog creatures advance sequentially, just like walking, one step in front of the other. Jumps, leaps - those are about crossing into new territories, but few of us can vault ourselves through life.
Evolution needs love, the mixing of genes and substances. Without, things stay as they are.
It is as if the factors of coincidence and luck exist, with all their possibilities, as an a priori making the manifestation of a serendipitous event the reflection of the more persistent and potent potential elements. One could speculate that all of evolution happened by continuous chance interaction, with the best possibilities given to the most powerful agents, even if giving the impression of luck or coincidence. To advance, new components must appear, sometimes unexpected, finding each other and coming together to make something novel. Those evolutionary accidents advance the universal consciousness, leading to a richer future.
Human evolution is affected by the updates to our inherited genes, modified by nature and, increasingly, by humans themselves. Yet, also by randomness, making unexpected mutations and outcomes possible.
All, including the universe, may be governed by rules and algorithms with the proviso that the formulas allow for change, chance, and the unknown. Evolution happens as energy is expansive, with the possibility and occurrence of accidents. Is the self-aware nature of human consciousness just a reflection of greater complexity? What might the next iteration be?
