I think humanity might evolve through our invention of Artificial Intelligence. Physically we have evolved from amoeba until human, intellectually we have evolved too. Intelligence began I think with Greek philosophy around 600BC when Heraclitus, Socrates and Plato established human identity. Their use of the word ‘gnosis’ recognised the perceiver, the “I” which became the cornerstone of Human Intelligence.
Economy has taken over so focused we are on another human invention, money. Crypto-Currency may yet help us to transcend that too towards a better mode of exchange, perhaps effort. 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 go beyond industrial age man or information age human. Perhaps inter-planetary human is next as we colonise Mars? That’s if we can evolve beyond amoeba and survive global warming.
