Human Evolution In 2019
Is it possible for the human species to evolve here in 2019?
How would this look? Are we sitting on a powder keg just waiting to explode or will it take millions of years before Homo Sapiens evolves into something else?
Although there is certainly a biological element to this question, it is essential to consider the ability for technology to speed-up the process of human evolution via allowing our species to merge with machines and/or consume psychedelic substances in order to accelerate the process. Have you experimented with Psychedelic mushrooms before?
This is a factor that is not often considered... The philosopher Terence Mckenna (RIP) was an advocate for the idea that psilocybin mushrooms aided the development of the human brain and evolution over a quick period of time.
Would it be possible for this to happen again?
Human evolution might look differently than we can define biologically.
Instead of a process taking millions of years to complete, human evolution might happen in the blink of an eye. When have we crossed over into something new? Does it happen when we have cybernetic chips embedded in our heads that connect us automatically to virtual reality and the internet? Will it be when we operate our lives on blockchain-integrated neuralink-platforms? It would seem that we are moving towards this future faster than we are not.
These are important questions to consider. On this show, Scot Chrisman and I are talking about the ramifications of the internet and how technology will impact human evolution. Let's dive into this conversation!
