The father of general semantics, Alfred Korzybski coined the term “A map is not the territory”. This is to say, how we perceive reality is not reality itself, but our own version of it. We individually generate a ‘map’ of reality and this becomes how we navigate our perceptions. Read further here: http://www.seriouswonder.com/navigating-attention-neural-nirvana

"Did we become transhuman when our parents placed the first electronic gadget into our hands? Perhaps it is was when we received our first ‘life-promoting’ vaccines such as the hepatitis A, B, or the influenza vaccine? Personally, I believe this isn't the case, and that we become transhuman much earlier. I believe we shed our pure human form and become transhuman in the womb through the use of genetically engineered foods, iodized salt, and prenatal pills." - +Brandon Tomlin

Every few weeks, we will have a group of (Scientists, Futurists, Philosophers, Authors ext.) expressing their opinions and perspectives about these exponential times.  Guests for this Hangout:  Nicole Cannavaro , Mike Cassidy , Kyle Russell, Cecile Tamura and Johan Nygren
