There has to be something different and unique about human beings in the 21st century. I am answering the question I asked some time ago: Is redefinition possible?
It is not only possible, it is necessary.
I believe we have become technological beings in a unique way. A hundred plus years ago, the growth of technology led futurists to imagine a synergy of technology with the physical body—it has come true in unpredictable ways. Mechanical hearts, and organs and children grown in petri-dishes and there is no limit to what can be imagined and executed. Another way of thinking led to how technology intervenes in our consciousness—the Matrix series of movies is just one example. Mostly it was about esoteric adepts who have played the Glass Bead Game. Today, it impacts the thinking of each one of us ordinary being.
So when does evolution cross a threshold—when change occurs in a few special individuals or large-scale in a whole race? For there is no doubt, we human beings are changing in a fundamental way. And it is not about our bodies. It is about our minds.
And that means that our culture, relationships, beliefs and attitudes—everything is changing.
Since we were always more dramatically creatures of the mind—this means that we are at the cusp of a massive change.
