Future tense: Radical evolution

Joel Garreau

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Computational science and technological conception, which are powerful enough, are designed to modify ones minds, memories, metabolism, personalities, progeny, and help in transformation of ones evolution. The author votes for prevail, which reflects faith that the shattered human convoy of different perceptions, troubled honor, posturing, insecurity, and humor will lead a way to glory. Prevail is driven by faith in human offensiveness, based on an idea that one can count on humans to remove exponential change. The assumption is that even if a smooth curve of exponential change describes the future of technology, it will not be marked into the complicated world of human fortunes. The GRIN (genetic, robotic, information, and nano processes), all based on computating technologies, aim towards changing the value and definition of the mankind.
