Ask A Genius 256 – The Breakdown of Self
Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner
August 11, 2017
[Beginning of recorded material]
Rick Rosner: People may—will certainly give themselves over to these entities. Not everyone and not all the time but people will belong to them and the people will participate into various degrees in willing the action.
People won’t be people. People will be broken down, will be melded with other information processing entities, and the self, I mean, some people—or entities will, will hold their selves to be super important and will live existence—it will have existence that maintain the integrity of the self.
Other entities will sled it up and merge and split and bud and be part of a more fluid information processing structures where you know, the self doesn’t, isn’t at the level of you know, what we would consider the self. The self might just be much bigger in terms of the information processing ability it has and the—where it’s getting its information input, its sensory input from. And so living as a human will still be possible and there will still be probably billions.
