Homo Sapiens is not the final word in primate evolution, but few have yet grasped that we are on the cusp of profound biological change, poised to transcend our current form and character on a journey to destinations of new imagination. This will allow us to seize control of our evolutionary future. The road to our eventual disappearance must be paved not by humanity’s failure but by its success. Progressive self-transformation could change our descendants into something sufficiently different from our present selves to not be human in the sense we use the term now. It would not end our lineage. Homo sapiens would spawn its own successor by fast-forwarding its own evolution.
The answers are always inside the problem, not outside.
