My prediction is that soon there will be a huge gap between people, maybe bigger than ever. Literally some people will have super-strenght, vision and hearing while others are just plain old humans. This gap will close at some point when technology matures but there will be this huge jump forward with small group of people quite soon. So let's just hope that we can handle that kind of change.
I agree with the "huge gap".
Basically we are entering another dark age. Where there will be people who know how to do things, and the rest of the unwashed masses.
Contrary popular belief in the historical dark ages, not all people where ignorant.
For example most people thought the world was flat. Enlightened people (the church had huge monestaries with vast libraries) knew the world was wrong, but it was convinient to allow the unwashed masses to thing it was flat. The crap the chris columbous thought he would fall off the edge of the earth was total rubbish.
Reason why the huge gap will exist is because few people like in the dark ages can control vast amounts of knowledge.
As for the unwashed masses, for the same reason social programs fail.
If you have 10 people, and 9 of them made $50K a year, and 1 made $60K.
The person who made $60K would rather he made $30K and the other 9 made $10K.
That way instead of only being 20% better then the other people he would be 300% better.
The way our animal brain thinks
Afterall, our lifetime is barely a blink on the large scale of time.
And precisely because of that we have to make the best of the time we are here. To me, that doesn't involve waiting the masses to wake up.
People take shit much too seriously.
I find people's behaviour very comical including my own
. I could go on about my various neurosis.
I also find shit comical. Like a mathematical expert in probability who has a gambling addiction
He goes to casinos probably can tell u exactly how much he stands to lose yet he is addicted
