Kurzweil: ‘Human Hybrids by 2030’ - Uncommon Wisdom Daily: "After all … he who controls thought, controls the world."
'via Blog this'
Parley with us a while. Ray Kurzweil was pointed out to us six years ago by Pribek dot nation. There is no such thing as a prophet some might say, and others would point to Kurzweil, Futurist. I am convinced and for good reason, that Ray Kurzweil wields that honor today of prophet, especially in AI, Artificial Intelligence.
Think about it. We are saving bits of data that are essentially repugnant doody parts of conversations from faecesBook, comments on forked-tongue articles, and immeasurable other social networking cacophony. But there is a limit to amount of data that can be transmitted over a fiber optic cable. Yes there is, a limit up to four terabytes of data per second, after which there is dissonance on the line.
We are reaching our limits in communications. Think of a Berkeley professor who teaches communications today. Yes a liberal college, but does he teach anything other than ethics? What if there comes a time when every person on earth, all 7 billion, at one time all have the same thought, have the same song on our lips, all like the same color? It would be the hour of obliteration.
"... According to genius inventor and noted futurist Ray Kurzweil, in just 15 years humans will meld with computers ... “Our thinking then will be a hybrid of biological and non-biological thinking,” said Kurzweil. (June 5, 2015, Brad Hoppmann. LINK) ..."With limitations of technology, mind melding with nanobots as Kurzweil describes it, will only lead to a stopping point, a brick wall. But someone will figure a way around that too. However, if you want to continue marching to the beats of different drummers in your own life, then you better steer clear of hybridizing technologies. Otherwise you could become rather uncomfortable non-participant in the hive of a New World Order.
