Trans-Intelligence VERSUS Humanity

Kurzweil & Harari versus Hawkins & Lanier

From Delirium Sapiens To Delirium Deus or vice-versa

Four names, four men — and no women — but a crucial stake in the heart of our vampiric future history. Ray Kurzweil, the dystopic businessman. Yuval Noah Harari, the self-proclaimed Biblical prophet of the next apocalypse. Jeff Hawkins, the neurobiologist in continuation of Bertrand Russell. Jaron Lanier, the musician turned computer scientist. From the superficiality of transhumanism to the depth of human creativity.

The choice is yours. Enjoy it.

But take some fruit juice along in case you might get slightly thirsty for relief and escape. Transhumanism is a dystopia but in no way a curse or our fate. We can control the future.

The debate about transhumanism is twisted end crooked right now because it states, or it assumes man’s intelligence, or man’s intellect power will not develop, I mean will not grow, no matter what. Man is inventing machines that are always more powerful and always more “intelligent”, and man’s intelligence would not be able to follow their own creation and become more intelligent and keep these machines under their control.

This assumption is absurd and it is nothing but the modern rewriting of the Book of Revelation or the apocalypse seen by various Old Testament visionary minds that some call prophets. Man’s intellect has no limits and its development will surprise even the most skeptical people in twenty years.
