Humans 'will become God-like cyborgs within 200 years'
May 25th, 2015, 4:45pm
 
Wealthy humans are likely become cyborgs within 200 years as they gradually merge with technology like computers and smart phones, a historian has claimed.

Yuval Noah Harari, a professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, said the amalgamation of man and machine will be the ‘biggest evolution in biology’ since the emergence of life four billion years ago.

Prof Harari, who has written a landmark book charting the history of humanity, said mankind would evolve to become like gods with the power over death, and be as different from humans of today as we are from chimpanzees.

Science fiction or science fact? Of course the next question is do you believe it.

I'm still waiting for my flying car...  ;)

Become "God-like?" The first ones to get these treatments will be people like the Koch brothers, and (many-hearted) Dick Cheney.

Long life does not -- at least IMO -- equate with God-ness. More like demons, in the cases of those named above.

I think, Webbie, you will get your flying car before the rich attain anything like God-ness. Yes, they may live a long time. So do disease germs.

Chuckle.... Don't forget to put Soros in your list for political balance. After all he does use more influence and money than the Koch brothers do in every election. He's just on the liberal side of the fence.

Or for that matter the "Political Class" in general.

Hmm, didn't they make a movie about that?

You are probably right about the car though. Sigh....

Found this on-line with the typical premise, which by the way is flat out wrong as in incorrect.
But it is kinda relevant...

Quote:
With biologists getting closer and closer to reversing the aging process in human cells, the reality of greatly extended life draws closer. This brings up a very important conundrum: You can't tell people not to reproduce and you can't kill people to preserve resources and space. Even at our current growth rate there's not enough for everyone. Not enough food, not enough space, not enough medical care. If — no, when — age reversal becomes a reality, who gets to live? And if everyone gets to live, how will we provide for them?


A more realistic question is how do we tax them. But of course the brain trusts haven't thought this out that far yet...

Well, if the notorious and secretive TPP becomes reality, it won't matter. The corporatists will have _everything_ and the rest of us will have _nothing_. Problem solved....maybe.

Of course every now and then the lower classes (us) get sick of it all, and we have a French Revolution, a Tzarist revolution, the numeerous Dynastic revolutions in Asia...so maybe there is still hope.

Maybe.

You know how furious we lower ranks will be if only the top people have flying cars!

Ah yes, the TPP. Another law/treaty that will be passed so we can find out what's in it. More goodies from "The Most Transparent Administration In History". Their words, not mine. Yea, I know, nobody really expects politicians to actually live up to their campaign promises.

So many secrets and still, no flying cars.  :(
