What will be the next stage in the evolution of man?
Carl Sagan said it nicely:
"Two billion years ago, our ancestors were microbes; a half-billion years ago fish; a hundred million years ago, something like mice: ten million years ago arboreal apes; and a million years ago, proto-humans puzzling out the taming of fire. Our evolutionary lineage is marked by mastery of change. In our time, the pace is quickening."
But where is it headed?
If Kurzweil is right, it could be very well be this:
"We are becoming cyborgs. We will trade our human bodies for human bodies ‘version 2.0′. The frame that we’ll be using after changing our biological body for a non-biological one bit by bit, represents the continuation of a long-standing trend in which we grow more intimate with our technology."
