Explore the intricate dance of genetic diversity and the power of thought in shaping human evolution. Discover how these fundamental elements intertwine, driving our progress for millions of years, and ponder the future role of AI in this evolutionary journey.

What's inside

  1. Exploring the role of genetics in evolutionary diversity.
  2. The impact of thought diversity on human progress.
  3. AI's potential influence on future evolutionary paths.

Genetic diversity

There is rapid scientific progress being made towards building artificial intelligence in different modalities (text, images, etc.), and it is hard not to see a future where eventually it will converge into some form of Artificial General Intelligence. If/When it does, I can’t help but wonder how such an intelligence in the future would treat humans. “Would it be empathetic, or would it be dominant?”

Today, in our place in the evolutionary chain, humans have the highest cognitive skills. Due to this, we have chosen a path of dominance. We grow and use life as food, we treat animals as produce in factory lines, we wipe out natural ecosystems to make vain tables and chairs and build fancy homes and factories, we convert fossils to polymers and then dump them in oceans, we introduce chemicals into organic matter without regard to life forms in the soil, and the host of actions is endless. If intelligence means dominance, we are doing a fantastic job.

But this path of dominance is not the universal human path. There is a growing movement towards more empathy towards life forms around us. Preservation of biodiversity, local and organic eating, reduction of plastics, plant-based diets, and free-range farming are just some starting examples of humans with more empathy. I personally believe that empathy is a higher-order intelligence since it is inclusive. Dominance is a historical concept.

I have a companion in my home. She is 6 years old, and she has 4 paws. Her name is Maple. When people use the phrase “pet ownership,” I cringe. I don’t own Maple. How can one life form own another? I am her caretaker and her companion, and vice versa. I want no dominion over other life but rather friendship.

I can understand that the path of empathy is a balancing act since one must weigh the consequences to oneself. However, the path of dominance is also a balancing act since one has to weigh the consequences to other life forms.

There isn’t a right or wrong here, but the question to ask yourself is how would you like a higher form of intelligence to treat you? If you are a fair person, you would want to be treated the way you treat other life forms. It’s an important question since it will inform the lifestyle decisions you make.

Explore ten breakthrough technologies poised to redefine human existence, from gene editing and AI to Mars journeys and mind uploading, reshaping our future in unimaginable ways. Dive into this evolution now.

What's inside

  1. Tracing technology's evolution: Stone Age to AI.
  2. Analyzing breakthroughs: Gene editing to Martian living.
  3. Redefining humanity: From enhancement to evolution.

The value for you as an enterprise leader

This is the most important question that we will have to answer in this century.

In the last few million years, technology (from stone age tools to computers) has been an enabler for us to lead better lives (i.e lifestyles) and have improved life spans (i.e health). While some technologies have made their way into the human body such as pacemakers, metallic joints, hip replacements, knee replacements, cataracts, etc, most of these technologies have been incremental changes that fix us.

In the last few years, a suite of new technology breakthroughs are emerging that are going to raise some important questions about how humans will evolve. These technologies are not just enablers but fundamental game changers that will modify what it means to be a human being. They can lead to stronger, faster, more intelligent, more agile and non-terrestrial humans. While some of these technologies exist, some are conceptual.

With gene editing, mind uploading, exoskeletons, general artificial intelligence, non-biological reproduction and martian living, the definition of what it means to be human will be a leading question in this century.

Here we capture 10 such technologies that you will want to keep your eyes on

  1. Gene editing (CRISPR)
  2. General artificial intelligence (AGI)
  3. Exoskeletons
  4. Neuralink
  5. Mind Uploading with Nectome (Y Combinator)
  6. Journey to Mars
  7. Mind-Mind Communication
  8. 3d Printing Organs
  9. Ectolife
  10. Living Robots
