I thought the only chance for human evolution might be aliens, but I suspect today we are progressing through our creation of the internet. Physically we have evolved from amoeba to fish to man-apes to humans and intellectually we evolved when Socrates and Plato established human thought. Their use of the word ‘gnosis’ recognised a perceiver.

We have now become dependent on the internet and businesses have been built by it, think Google, Facebook and Uber just to name a few. As with all things business is taking over so focussed on another human invention we are, money. The internet provides an opportunity for us to evolve but key players are influenced by opinion. A Google search sometimes presents results according to Google’s preferences. The US election is an example, the results for a search on ‘Hilary email’ weren’t by the number of hits but an algorithm.

I am waiting for a new search engine which, like the website Steemit, uses a ‘Distributed Open Trusted Database’ which might present search results according to preferences like maybe by the number of hits or location or accuracy. In this system the results to your search criteria might partly reside on any computer globally because of shared resources with no server someone can control. No influence just data, an open way to access information, not determined by companies or interests. Today corporations might be controlling the data, mediating the search in hidden ways.

Also there is crypto currency where we may even transcend money, the human interpretation of value. Instead we could focus on life and experience. I think life more valuable than money. Money is such a human abstraction, how much do you earn? rather are you happy? Sure we needed it for incentive to evolve to this point but maybe we can evolve further and go beyond the industrial age or ‘competitive man’ as I’ve put it below in my assessment of human evolution. 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? But then again in the time of Trump Facebook has become fake news, human devolution.

Primitive Man
Thinking Man – Gnosis
Competitive Man – Money
Intelligent Man – Artificial

  1. Hello, I recently remembered you and your twin. How is he recovering? I sincerely hope all things are tracking well and he is the same person you remember… take good care if you get this, not very sure that you will

  2. I think you’re normal. Maybe not the same as you as you were, I didn’t know you. But I’ve read what you’ve wrote and it doesn’t sound like you’re abnormal.

  3. Thank you. I just hope he has the same heart and core as he had and that he keeps getting better like you. You and your brother are in my thoughts.

  4. By the way I’m not normal yet after more than 5 years, but I try and still do things, that’s been the best approach for normalisation, to be active and do the things you always did… hang in there as only you can

  5. I’m the older one too… hopefully the brain isn’t so damaged that he doesn’t have physical issues as bad as mine… I have no doubt he appreciates your efforts and concerns, just keep with it, a very long road to recovery, you probably know him best and can help best, understand his problems

  6. I think he’s in the post coma amnesia stage. When he talks he’s scared and that scares me. He’s always been the protector, maybe cause he’s the older one?

  7. While I forgot many things apparently I immediately remembered my identical twin. I’m told I spoke to him in a very familiar way when I could. I think yours will definitely remember you the moment he can remember anything at all. He probably remembers now but cannot express. Just by being there you are helping him, he feels you too even if he can’t say it. Every day I am thankful for my twin, I might be in institution care without him… My twin always took responsibility for decisions like the medication they put me on, and disagreed with some approaches that were taken, stopped the ones he thought would detract…

  8. My identical twin brother suffered a tbi six weeks ago. He was in a coma and is in rehab currently. I know it sounds weird but I can feel him when I say short sentences like he does or when I move my arm like he does. I worry when he doesn’t remember me that it won’t get better. I miss him like I’ve never missed anyone. How did your brother feel?
