Ask A Genius 326 – Divinity and Human Exaltation
October 20, 2017
[Beginning of recorded material]
Scott Douglas Jacobsen: What were we talking about? Ah yes, the future and comprehending the short, mid, and long-term.
Rick Rosner: Yes, it was about the near, what is in the middle, and what is here to come.
Jacobsen: We were talking about the short, mid and long-term future, and what is here to come. We were speaking about our time expectations. Along the way, I’ve noted something which some may find humiliating; it’s about the ‘Erosion of the Assumption of Divinity.’
Rick Rosner: I’d like to call it, the ‘End of Human Exaltation and the Human Experience,’ but I am afraid to say that humans will have little to no joy in the upcoming years. You can say it in other words as it is the story about humans and humanity regarding their existence in different forms. Let’s begin with outlining the near future as it is what every human expects at this time.
This is regarding the next 50-100 years, or basically the whole 21st Century and we are talking about the technologies and devices that will have a major impact on the humanity, their way of living and existing. These devices and technologies are here to aid us with our perception and our behaviour towards the world. When we are addressing to the mid-future, this is one of the most interesting ones and the strangest of them all. This period offers us technologies and abilities that we haven’t experienced before.
