Do you think that a primal tribe leader or member in South America is more or less happy then the richest technocrat in modern society?
Do you think they define the world less than you would with a computer or smart device?
Does the march toward the merging of technology with humanity become like a new religion and the singularity its rapture and people like Jason Silva a
spokesperson or if you will a priest (Kurzweil is its pope mind you...) in this post modern form of worshiping the self, humanity and its desire to
transcend death through its own creation?
Technology doesn't just free us, it enslaves us, makes us dependent, it doesn't just solve problems, often it creates new ones! It often creates
complexity where none is needed, it often expands its own needs for existence (technology for the sake of creating new technology not solving any of
humanities needs), it uses more and more materials, but doesn't have a real pay off or return as expected, predicted or promised!
The Cake is a Lie
Working in IT for 20+ years I have found it rarely meets any needs (what you need to live/survive), but does create many more wants and artificially
(note that word) creates a never ending perpetually increasing desire in unmet wants with a promise of something better, faster, stronger, smarter
just around the corner!
People who do not understand technology, TRULY Understand it! Do not see Transhumanism and the Singularity as the modern day promethean snake oil for
what it is...
