This is without doubt the most audacious thing I’ve ever written. But I feel it’s an idea that needs to be explored, because I’ve yet to hear it being voiced anywhere else. There is a very high likelihood that some of the following ideas may cause you offence if they contradict some of your personal beliefs. If that’s the case, I apologise, offence is not intended. Keep an open mind and read to the end. Then I invite you to add your thoughts in the comments below.
The underlying theory that I want to propose is that during this century – humanity may very likely cease to exist in its biological physical human form. There is a strong likelihood that our species will stop reproducing and instead advance to a new plane of existence. What form would we instead take? My theory is that we would instead exist as a collective consciousness that is part of the artificial intelligence that will undoubtedly be the most intelligent and capable entity ever created on our planet.
Right about now you probably think I’m crazy. And I don’t blame you. I know this sounds crazy. But hear me out.
