The "end point" for humanity is one person manifesting the powers of a god. That is to say, one person having the power/potential to, say, harness
the complete energy of a star, galaxy, or galaxy cluster. Imagine a race similar to ours, but instead of a king or political cast controlling a
working class by a ratio of, lets say, 10,000,000:1 (10 million workers to 1 controller/king/politician), you have an indefinite amount of workers to
1 controller; or ~infinite:1.
Why is that important? Well that is essentially how society has worked for 10s of thousands of years, and it doesn't seem likely to ever change. With
advances rapidly pushing robotics, micro-processing, artificial intelligence, etc, into never before conceived dimensions, it only seems natural that
in the distant future, there will not be a need for human labor, and only limited need for human creativity. This can only end one way, and since it
doesn't involve any need for dumb humans whom the blue bloods leech off of like some sort of cruel parasite, they will be removed from the
I don't think this necessarily means somebody is going to try to kill all humans, all It means is, eventually, dealing with other people will be more
inhibiting than constructive. Perhaps the population of earth will stabilize, and one day we'll simply repopulate other planets, making them in our
own image, or to our own ends. But I simply do not see nature guiding us anymore than it has, already. We are destined to consort with the stars, in a
way nobody would imagine possible today.
The question is, will there be many gods, or just one? Which is to say, how many controllers are there going to be to workers?
