We can't even get HUMAN right, how are we supposed to be better with technology?
Why does everyone keep thinking that technology, material possessions, and material knowledge makes us happier?
If you took someone from 200 years ago and showed them all the stuff we have they would think we are living in paradise.
But we are just as miserable with technology as we were without it. Technology may have brought us closer together, but it has separated us from the
physical reality all around us.
Man is so stupid, we create, build, philosophy and die. How exactly does Transhumanism change anything?
It's about love and humanity. Unless what we build is built for humanity how will it ever progress the Human.
Shouldn't we first learn how to be Human, before worrying about Transhumanism
Without Love and humanity all this technology will do is give us greater resources to destroy and control each other. Material knowledge does not
lead to HUMAN enlightenment. Material possession and knowledge serve only as distractions to WHO WE ARE AND WHY WE ARE HERE.
Technology can't answer these questions, nor can technology bring peace, unless you believe that a police state, 100% surveillance is peace.
We were given all we needed by our creator, you can't build it, you can't know it from the pages in a book, but you can be Enlightened from within by
