The Singularity Is Near When Humans Transcend Biology
Author: Raymond Kurzweil
Publication Date: 2005
Ray Kurzweil is one of the foremost futuristics in the world. Forbes qualifies him as “the biggest thinking machine”. In his book “Singularity is near” originally published in 2005, he emphasizes how the improving technology affects humans’ biological structure.
In his book, it is mentioned that the speed of technological change is transforming human life, and the effects of change will get deeper. This period that is named as singularity by Kurzweil, will completely change the concepts we rely on to make our lives meaningful.
According to Kurzweil, evolution creates a skill, then it uses this skill for developing the next step. No doubt, beginning using this technology in all areas of life, will affect also human evolution. One day technology will dominate every point of biology, including human intelligence.
I advise you to read this book which reveals the destructive effects of technology from past to now and the developments that will transform us in every way in the future, and which shows a futuristics perspective.
