Comment on Body vs Mind

These ideas sort of scare me. If you project a little further than you are explaining here, it seems like the next step is to get past the individual. Why worry so much about the individual self when our combined knowledge is way expansive and efficient. I already sort of feel this. For example, I don't take much effort to memorize things anymore, because I can always just google it. It seems like our logical capabilities are taking precedence over our storage ones. This seems like a good symbiotic relationship between us humans and computers. But what happens when computers can outdo our logic? What are we good for? Why are we on earth? Is our ultimate goal happiness? Will our happiness be guaranteed?? ... I hope not!
