“ - Presenting the newest developments in the fields of cognitive sciences, robotics, and modeling of living systems
- Evaluating the potential for transforming planetary civilization in light of the rapid pace of technological development
- Analyzing possible scenarios for the development of civilization in the context of new concepts regarding universal history, or “Big History”
- Discussing strategic problems arising in a dynamically changing world and the potential for the appearance of a global or cosmic mode of thinking.
Event speakers were comprised of world leading physicists, biologists, anthropologists, sociologists, psychologists, philosophers as well as specialists in the fields of Big History, robotics, brain-computer interfaces, neurosciences and space technology from Russia, the United States, Canada, the Netherlands and other countries.”
"At first, there may be implants, but in the longer run by transferring our consciousness to machines, if that is technically possible, and I do think this is a very important developments that are going to affect our economy, our society and our view of the world over this century.”
“Now, one concept that is useful I think in thinking about long-term futures for humanities the notion of the single tongue, which should be a world order, where at the highest level of organization there is only one decision-making entity. Now, that decision-making entity could be any of a wide range of certain structures: it could be the world democratic government, it could be a dictator, it could be a super-intelligent machine, it could be some, perhaps, even a universal moral code that had provisions for its law-enforcement, but both good and bad structures could count as a single tongue. But the unifying feature would be that they all have the ability to solve global coordination problems, for example, to avoid arms races or to solve these global common problems, like, when we have different countries spearing out pollutants into the atmosphere or over-fishing the oceans, – now all these kinds of coordination problems that arise from the lack of a single decision-making entity on the top.”
“As a scientist, an astrophysicist, I am worried primarily about the future of science. This is what we can say about the future of science in the post-singular stage. Firstly, we can make a few general philosophical propositions. Any progressive phenomenon in evolution cannot be progressive forever, as leaders in evolution replace each other. In this sense, science is a typical progressive phenomenon, it arose in response to certain crises, and served to overcome them. So science in this quality, as the basis of the formation of the vector of the development of human civilization, cannot be a leader forever. From this, it follows that a change in leadership will take place, and another leader must come to replace science, a leader about which we do not yet know anything about.”
There needs to be global mechanisms for review and regulation...We have had many brilliant ideas and innovations presented at the Moscow Congress of Global Futures 2045. These innovations are very exciting and very important, but the BIG QUESTION is how do we link them, how do we promote them, how do we popularize them – in such a fashion that we create a new world consciousness, a new world civilization – in what my friend, David Hookes, calls “Global Enlightenment".
Now the premise is that these things will be for the name of world peace. But if anyone understands prophetic scriptures, most of the enslavement is happening, and ultimately going to happen under the guise of peace. It's only when world peace is attained that the world is most vulnerable for total enslavement and lock down.
How ’ya gonna keep ’em down on the farm,
After they’ve seen Paree?
You bring up some great points. It's something I need to clarify often. I am not against peace. But I am saying that the deception runs deep. A perfect example is the UN.
So no, Just because I am saying "be careful of those who preach global peace" doesn't automatically mean I am for wars and killing everyone.
As for technological progress, yes ts a good thing. I'm on my iPhone right now to type this up. But I also understand that the transhumanism agenda is different in that instead of exploring and changing the external world, we are going internal, messing with the very thing that makes us, us.
There are also synthetic corneas (keratoprostheses) in development. Most are merely plastic inserts, but there are also those composed of biocompatible synthetic materials that encourage tissue ingrowth into the synthetic cornea, thereby promoting biointegration. Other methods, such as magnetic deformable membranes and optically coherent transcranial magnetic stimulation of the human retina are still in very early stages of research.
