Futurist Claims Technology Causing Humans To ‘Evolve’ Into A New Species

TN Note: Technocracy and Transhumanism are siamese twins born to Scientism, or the belief that science and science alone can answer all of the needs of man. Ten years ago, such themes were only seen in science fiction movies. Today, “scientists” and “experts” are publishing articles in mainstream media. 

If you’re under the age of 40, there is a good chance you will achieve ‘electronic immortality’ during your lifetime.

This is the idea that all of your thoughts and experiences will be uploaded and stored online for future generations.

That’s according to a futurologist who not only believes technology will let humans merge with computers, that this will create an entirely new species called Homo optimus.

And, he claims this could occur as soon as 2050.

The predictions were made by Dr Ian Pearson as part of the lead up to The Big Bang Fair 2016.

He believes that within the next 35 years, humans will ‘live’ online, and our pets could even ‘talk’ to us, like real-life Furbies.

He also claims transhumanism – the idea we can make people technologically better – will be the norm by 2050.

‘With optimised genomes and bodies enhanced by links to external technology, people could be more beautiful…more intelligent, more emotionally sophisticated, more physically able, more socially connected, generally healthier and happier all round.’

As humans embrace technological advances and gradually become androids, we could gradually see Homo sapiens being replaced by Homo optimus.

‘We can expect our evolutionary process to change in response to technology. 

‘What’s exciting is that it is no longer nature which is forcing changes on us but our own breakthroughs enabling changes we want, ‘ Dr Pearson explained.

This could give rise to some weird and wonderful future forms and creations – from changing video displays on our faces to controlling our own dreams – our (evolving) imaginations are the only limit.’

Dr Pearson believes that with a full link between the human brain and a computer, people could move their mind into an improved android body.
