I once thought the only chance for human evolution would be aliens, but I suspect today we are evolving through technology, intelligence has transcended human beings with AI. Physically humans have evolved, starting from amoeba, fish, mammals, until human. Intellectually we have evolved too, I think ideas began with Greek philosophy when Heraclitus, Socrates and Plato established human thought. Their use of the word ‘gnosis’ recognises a perceiver. Subsequently we have thought about religion, science, economy, and now technology. Today I think we are evolving by sharing ideas through our collective consciousness, the internet. It provides us records of all human thought. Businesses have been built by the internet, think Google, Facebook and Uber. As with all things today economic thought has taken over so focused on another human invention we have become, money.
Crypto-Currency may yet help us to transcend money too and arrive at a purer mode of exchange, perhaps effort. I think life more valuable than cash. Money is such a human abstraction, how much do you earn? Rather are you happy? Sure we needed money as incentive to evolve to this point but I think we can evolve further and go beyond industrial age man. Indeed through artificial intelligence we have created machines that can think which has become our primary activity, to think. Perhaps inter-galactic man is next? That is if we can intellectually evolve beyond amoeba and survive global warming.
