Ray Kurzweil says when we live in a cybernetic society we will have computers in our brains and machines will be smarter than human beings. 

He claims this is already happening with technology - especially with our addiction to our phones - and says the next step is to wire this technology into our brains.

Singularity is when carbon and silicon-based intelligence will merge to form a single global consciousness.

That leads to computers having human intelligence, our putting them inside our brains, connecting them to the cloud, expanding who we are.”

We are.

But who are we?


Forget about Charles Darwin, evolution, and Natural Selection.

Men are doing the selecting.
Men are determining evolution.

As Donald Trump likes to say, “It's going to be a beautiful thing.”

Or not.


The U.S. Congress needs to have computers in their brains.

They need to be put in the cloud.

So does Donald J. Trump.






The goal for many researchers is to develop a brain exactly like a human's.
But some researchers say this would be a step too far.
Dr Martin Coath, from the Cognition Institute at the University of Plymouth, questioned why anyone would ever want to create a 'real' human brain.
'A human brain that was 'fully working' would be conscious, have hopes, dreams, feel pain, and would ask questions about what we were doing to it,' he said.

'Something we have grown in the lab, but on a much simpler level than a human brain, might be hooked up to electronic eyes, ears, and hands and be taught to do something - maybe something that is as sophisticated as many simple living creatures.
'That doesn't seem so far off to me.'
