The human species is rapidly and indisputably moving towards the technological singularity. The cadence of the flow of information and innovation in the infoverse demands a response. As hyperconnectivity increases, our minds are becoming progressively more coupled and cybernetically...
I've been thinking a lot about this polytopia without offering any of the thoughts, so here, for whatever they're worth, are some of them.
