Disruption


Are we
ready
for what’s
to come?
Will we
know
how to behave?
Never before
in human history
has there been
such
disruption.
It was
once
a much
simpler place.
No more.
The future
is arriving
faster
than ever
before.
Gaia
now has a
neural net
the brain
is coming
alive.
Things
are changing
at such a clip
not like anything
seen before.
Things
will never
be the same.

Computers
that once filled
rooms
are now
held
in the
palm
of our hands.
Not too many years
from now
they’ll be
cursing through
our veins.

Nanotechnology,
biotechnology,
computer technology
exploding
at such a pace,
soon enough,
the internet
will be connected
to our face.
We’ll
all be part
of the
global brain,
have
instant access
to all the
knowledge
mankind has
thus far obtained.
Soon,
artificial intelligence
will join us
where we live,
things will
never
be the same.
Machines
will build machines
smarter
all the time.
Where we go
after all this
may drive
us all insane.
Some say
we’ll build
virtual worlds
every bit as
real,
and design them
to meet our
every need,
absolutely ideal.
No one
knows
for sure
which way
all this will
go.
I suggest
you batten
down the
hatches though,
it’s going to be
quite the show.
